    Botanical Cleansing Oil - Love this stuff!!

    I am a double cleanse gal & have tried more cleansing oil than I can count. I had my favorite cleansing oil until I tried this one. I love the feel & smell of this oil. Using it as a first cleanse I apply all over my face & let sit for a minute. Then I use a eco/green wash that lathers over the top as a second cleanser & remove eye make up. This leaves my skin moisturized after cleansing & free of both make up & impurities. Could be used alone, I just prefer a double cleanse!! My new fave cleansing oil.

    Underwhelming

    Jumped on the sale for this cleansing oil after seeing a glowing review from a YouTuber I follow. While I agree with her assessment that the slip is lovely and it doesn't leave a film at all after washing it off, it did not turn as mikly as I was expecting after adding water, nor did it remove my makeup that well as there was makeup residue on my drying towel and I don't wear heavy makeup. Glad I got it on sale rather than full price and doubtful that I'd repurchase.

    We're as disappointed as you are that this didn't live up to your expectations! When it emulsifies, it is on the subtle side. And, to be most effective at removing makeup, it helps to start with dry hands and face and massage into the skin. If this doesn't work out for you, we are happy to offer a return or exchange. Just let us know how we can help! Thanks so much, Allison

    LOVE

    I love the simple and clean ingredients. I love the texture of the oils in this blend; it really allows for a nice facial massage as it melts the makeup and SPF off the skin. It washes off cleanly but doesn't strip the skin. Has a very nice botanical scent I would think even the most sensitive to scents would love.

    Botanical cleansing super oil!

    I’ve been using cleansing oils for over 20 years, and this one makes the top of my list. It’s very mild scented, has a great texture where it’s thick enough with lots of slip without being heavy. I use it as a first cleanse in the evening, after I’ve taken off my eye makeup. Massage in, then add a little warm water and it get just the right amount of milkiness and it washes off beautifully. Takes off all your make up. It would take off eye makeup as well, it’s just a preference of mine to take it off first and not rub it all over my face when I do a first cleanse.

    Overall, it’s lovely. I will say that there could be more of a “scent” to the oil. The smell is very mild and slightly citrusy. I like mild smelling cleansers, but some people may miss that lack of a signature scent.

    All in all, I love it and will continue to buy for a long time! Allison the owner is wonderful, knowledgeable, and very friendly if you ever have any questions for her. Just a great company doing everything right and I really believe in their philosophy!
