One of my must have skin care items (that I always make sure I have on hand) is cleansing oil. Having the perfect makeup products to create a flawless look is one thing, but it's also important to protect and care for your skin. I don't wear a full face of makeup everyday, however I do always have some sort of product on my face (eyeliner or a light powder). So to make sure I am removing all presence of makeup and environmental residue, I reach for my cleansing oil every night as a part of my night time skin care routine.
I find that cleansing oil is the best method for removing all traces of makeup and dirt while still being gentle for the skin. For the past two weeks I have been using the highly raved Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil.
The Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is described to be a luxurious cleanser, formulated with jasmine flower extract, kukui nut oil, and a blend of Italian olive, sunflower and jojoba oils. All of these ingredients work together to wipe the skin clear of dirt and makeup while still leaving the skin incredibly smooth and hydrated.
I was a little hesitant to be spending that amount of money ($42 USD) for a cleansing oil, especially when there are other brands in the asian market for a bit cheaper. However, after using it daily for a little over two weeks I can definitely see why it's been so raved about. Compared to other cleansing oils I have tried, the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is the most hydrating one that I have ever come across. Other cleansing oil can still be a bit drying because of the ingredients they use to wipe away residue from the skin. The Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, however contains all of those natural extract and oils that keep the surface of the skin silky smooth. And best of all, it removes ALL traces of makeup and dirt.
After a long day, I can come home and with two full pumps of the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil have my fave clear of everything. It's incredibly gentle, making the removal of all waterproof eye makeup much easier. If I take a cotton pad with toner to my face after using the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, I cannot see any presence of leftover makeup or dirt on my face (which is incredibly impressive).
Another great thing about the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is the packaging. I know it's weird, but I am a sucker for great packing (especially when you are paying so much for a product). The lock proof pump and lightweight bottle makes the product incredibly convenient for travel, and it also looks nice just sitting on your vanity.
So for months like these warm summer days where we are wearing waterproof, long wear makeup and are spending entire days outside, definitely consider investing in a great cleansing oil to sooth and clear your skin (your face will definitely appreciate it).
