I’d never heard of DHC before until I opened up this little 30ml bottle of their Deep Cleansing Oil which came within the ASOS Beauty Advent Calendar 2017. The price of this cleansing oil ranges from £4.50-£24 depending on the size of bottle. As a 30ml bottle the way it’s dispensed is pretty inconvenient, however, with the larger bottles you get a pump which is much better.
The main ingredient is olive oil, which you can tell from the scent of it. It is a silky smooth oil that spreads over the face beautifully. To remove your makeup, you apply the oil to your dry skin and massage it all over. It can remove eye makeup but I still use a separate eye makeup to remove mine as I hate rubbing mascara/eye liner all over my face and I don’t like rubbing my eye area lots, which you would have to do if you were going to remove your eye makeup just with this oil. If you only wear a bit of eye makeup it would remove it fine! It removes base makeup brilliantly and washes off easily without leaving behind residue or greasiness. I mainly used it as a makeup remover rather than a second cleanse/morning cleanse, however, there’s no reason why it can’t be used for this!
As with most cleansing oils, this product is nourishing on the skin and doesn’t dry it out at all. The wonderful thing about cleansing oils is they give you a chance to give yourself a lil’ face massage and have that feeling of luxury and indulgence.
This is a lovely cleansing oil and it did what I hoped and removed my makeup very well without leaving behind lots of oiliness. Although, it is quite pricey for what on the face of it seems like some olive oil! I’m sure it’s very high quality olive oil and it does have some vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil thrown in but I’m still on the fence as to whether it’s worth the price. I haven’t tried many other cleansing oils so I don’t have much to compare it to but I would hope some of the more affordable options would do a similar thing. Have you got a favourite cleansing oil you would recommend? The only other cleansing oil I can remember trying is the Superfacialist Vitamin C Cleansing Oil which smells like oranges and costs £10.99. It was good and very pleasant to use although the packaging sucked.
