If you haven’t heard about oil cleansers yet, you will soon! Here’s my experience trying one out…
I was scrolling through Pinterest one day and came about this pin, 6 Facial Oil Cleansers Dermatologists Swear By as a new thing to try. You should read it. I gives great info about oil cleansers, what they are and the different types. I took the bait and went to the article all about the new rage for cleaning your face. I was so curious after reading the article that I actually went out for the sole purpose of buying an oil cleanser to try. But what is an oil cleanser? Well, for the most part, it’s exactly what it sounds like. You are using an oil like, Camellia, Argan, Coconut and Grapeseed oil to clean your face. They also have vitamins, fatty acids and the oils that can have anti-inflammatory properties. Sounds weird right?
That’s what I thought at first, but then I remembered how during the winter, when my skin is screaming because it’s so dry, that I sometimes grab olive oil and dab it on; instant relief. But how does it clean? You would think it would be messy and greasy and leave a film on your skin. I decided to try Simple’s Hydrating Cleansing Oil. Their product is free of tree nuts, which I have to avoid due to allergies and the price was great at $10 and it won a 2016 O-Award for Beauty. Sounded like a good choice and I could just run to Walmart to get it.
Just to let you know, my skin is dry and I have a lot pink because of it. I was even breaking out due to an allergy and it was overly irritated by the dryness. The first time I tried it, I didn’t have on any makeup. It was really easy, just rub it on your face, then add a little water and lather and rinse off with warm water. It was amazing! My skin was so soft afterwards. I even made my hubby touch my skin. It felt soothed and soft.
I went to bed thinking that I would probably wake up feeling greasy and with a film on my face, but no, just soft skin. I’ve been trying it for a few months now and there’s a nice difference in my skin. It’s smoother, softer and more hydrated and the best part? No greasy, oily residue. I’ve used it to remove my makeup and honestly, it does a great job of removing even waterproof mascara. The pink areas and the breakouts have toned down a good bit, too. I give this product 5 stars! You should definitely try it out. I love this stuff! I’m definitely going to be using oil cleansers from now on. There are tons of oil cleansers out there, find one with an oil that you like and try it and tell me what you think.
