Today, I have an awesome product for reviewing and I am so glad that I picked it from one of my favorite brands – MAC. I am a makeup addict and more of an eye makeup person, so I am always on the lookout for long wearing, deep dark kohls and mascara. But removing makeup is as important as applying. So, I had been eyeing this cleanse off oil since some time, but I was skeptical as I had the fear of breakouts and oily residue on my skin. But once I made up my mind, I picked it up. There has been no looking back since then. My poor little bottle of Maybelline is gathering dust as I found my new love in MAC Cleanse Off Oil. I was slightly apprehensive because in the store the oil removed the swatches, but there was oily residue left behind. I was told by the super helpful MUA that I have to emulsify the oil with water and then only I can see how good it works.
Rs. 1600 for 150 ml.
My Experience with MAC Cleanse Off Oil:
The cleanse off oil is very much like Johnson’s baby oil with lighter consistency. It is completely transparent and lightweight on skin. It is not at all sticky and feels like you are massaging a light oil on your skin.
Comes in a transparent bottle with a black pump. The outer white paper carton is white textured with MAC embossed all over. All details about ingredients and manufacturing are mentioned on the paper carton. The pump can be locked with a twist and hence make it travel friendly. Looking into the recycling program, this bottle applies to the “Back to MAC” policy. No fuss, functional packaging. Also, you can keep an eye on how much product is left.
Makeup simply melts when it comes in contact with the cleanse off oil. There is absolutely no tugging or pulling required with this. Massaging with light hands is just enough to get rid of all makeup on the face. When I do a full face makeup with foundation and eye/lip products, I take two pumps and rub it on my palms. Then, I massage the face slowly concentrating near the eyes and lips. Needless to say, I look like a mess when the makeup starts dissolving and there is a cloudy layer in front of my eyes. Taking a little water, I emulsify the oil and it forms a whitish liquid cast on the face. Following up with splashes of water leaves behind a squeaky clean face with no oily residue or traces of makeup.
The best part about this oil is that though I have combination skin, it has never caused any breakouts or left any oily residue. On the other hand, it does not dry out the skin badly, hence I do not have to run for the moisturizer.
I am all praises for this oil and this is one of a kind product. A little bit of the product goes a long way and hence it is worth the investment. Those who avoid waterproof makeup, especially mascara for the fear of removing it, give this a try. You will not be disappointed. This is a much-raved product and this is a must have if you are into “serious makeup.”
