Since we all are big-time makeup junkies, having a good makeup remover is a must to keep the skin healthy and maintained. I really like cleansing oil because they get rid of the makeup very easily giving a radiant complexion. I purchased one such makeup removing oil from Neutrogena long back and now that I have almost exhausted the bottle, I will review it. Scroll to read more about it.
Price: $8.99/Rs 600 for 118 ml

My Experience with Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil:
Packaging: The oil bottle comes in a pretty deep blue colour with a see-through packaging. The bottle is cylindrical in shape and very sleek too. Since it is a see-through bottle we can always keep a check on the quantity. But a very little quantity is required at once, so this bottle is going on for long. It has a white pump dispenser with a lock system which makes it travel-friendly and leak-proof. The packaging is perfect and looks pretty calming too. The price is good as the quality is great and it belongs to a good brand. But it might prove to be expensive if purchased in India due to the import duties.
Consistency, smell and feel on the skin: The consistency is runny but does not drip off from the hands while rubbing it on the skin. It is just like water but is oil. It is extremely light-weight just like it claims unlike a few makeup removing oils which feel super thick and greasy on the skin. It goes smooth on my skin and gives a slight tingly sensation which is good. The smell is a very mild one which does calm down the senses after a tired day. It goes very gentle on the skin which means it is suitable for all the skin types including sensitive skin.
Results: I use this as an opportunity to massage my face and it only lasts for 30 seconds since this is not that oily. It effectively cleans the entire makeup and makeup residue from my face. Just a bit of massage and everything is gone! It is also quite effective on the eye makeup but what I do is apply it on my eyes in circular motions, leave it on for a minute which dissolves the makeup, and then everything comes off with ease! It does not leave any oiliness or greasiness behind on my face which is why I can sleep leaving it on and it does not break me out. But I make it a point to wash my face after I use this. Also, on the no makeup days, I use it to get rid of impurities and it works so very well. So I think a great deal!
