Why use a cleansing oil?
Oil solves oil and not water. If you are using a lot of makeup the oils will simply bind to the product and both makeup and oil is easily rinsed off. Sunscreen is one of those difficult types of product to actually get off your face. A cleansing oil will do that in a jiffy and without stripping the skin of its natural oils. A lot of cleansers are really drying to the skin. And if this is your experience, then definitely go for a cleansing oil.
My thoughts on The Face Shop Rice Water Bright cleansing rich oil
I’ve heard so much about this one before I decided to buy it. It is an oil cleanser and it does a wonderful job in removing the makeup on the skin. I do have a huge issue with this one and that is that it is super strong scented. I have a really sensitive nose, when it comes to smell and I usually prefer my products to be non-scented or very lightly scented. This will actually be the reason and only reason for me not to buy this product again.
It removes every type of makeup on my skin, mascara, tints, foundation, concealer and so on.
It is a very gentle cleanser but it is still an oil, so if you get it in your eyes your sight will be blurry for a few seconds.
Packaging is a sturdy plastic bottle and it is a perfect container for this type of product. It is easy to get the right amount at just one or two pumps.
If you are using the double cleanse method this is a perfect first cleanser. If you are not using the double cleanse method, this is still a great cleanser to use. I have really dry skin so oil cleansers are the perfect choice for me. Oils are perfect to use even if you have oily acne prone skin.
How to use it
Pump 1-2 pumps in your palms, and warm the oil up in your hands, then massage your face for a m minute. Then wet your face and continue massaging, the oil will turn in to a milky white solution. Then rinse off.
If the scent would have been milder it would have gotten a 6
I give this product 5/7
