Ooh I love a cleansing oil especially a really effective one, so with some of the new ones that have come to my attention, it felt time to do another review ….a reboot. Each of these 4 oils is notable for their uniqueness and cleansing ability, plus they are suitable for all skin types. They are all cruelty-free,  free from nasties and most of them are organic… so the choice is yours!

Inner Senses GREENHOUSE Tomato and Carrot Seed Renewing Oil Cleanser

Aromatherapy brand ‘Inner Senses’ just keep launching fabulous new products! One of their latest is this Greenhouse Tomato and carrot seed cleansing oil and we’ve been loving it.

This is a unique & beautiful golden colour and smells very green, earthy and refreshing. It smells like freshly mown grass, which we love for Spring! You just gently massage 4-6 pumps into the skin, leaving it to soak for a minute or two and enjoy the scent. Then you soak the face cloth in hand-hot water, wring out, and place on the face leaving for a few moments before gently wiping away the oil in downward/outward motions, taking care not to drag around the delicate eye area.

The oil feels very silky on the skin. You’re left feeling refreshed and with a nice glow.

What’s in it

  • Carrot infused Jojoba oil (infused in-house): The Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is very moisturising. It’s a great base oil for this sort of product. The Carrot Seed Oil is high in beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant and will help protect your skin from environmental stressors.
  • Camellia seed oil: A rich source of Palmistic and Omega-6 Linoleic fatty acids, as well as numerous anti-ageing polyphenol antioxidants.
  • Tomato seed oil: supports regeneration of skin cells, improves elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens the skin tone.
  • Papaya seed oil: can aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Also contains high levels of Vitamin C
  • Avocado oil: rich in fatty acids and is excellent for moisturizing the skin.
  • Safflower oil: prevents dryness and roughness and removes dirt and oil.

The brand says:

“Beautifully fresh and bursting with skin-loving nutrients such as Lycopene, Beta-carotene and Papaya enzyme to cleanse and revitalise, this nourishing oil cleanser will gently yet effectively remove all residue of dirt and makeup, brightening the complexion and leaving it balanced, supple and silky smooth.”

Vanderohe Purifying Cleanser

Call me biased if you like but I am totally addicted to this brand…and every time Olivia puts something new out I find myself obsessing about getting to try it. So when this cleansing oil came out I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. A lot of time, thought and energy goes into Vanderohe products and it shows. There is a particular Vanderohe fragrance that you find yourself craving ( I first experienced it with the now cult facial serum… it’s so addictive) and now with the cleansing oil you get an even longer sensory boosting experience.

What’s to love

  • Well everything. My skin loves this cleansing oil, it cleanses, it purifies, it leaves my skin alive and radiant.
  • I never use this if I’m in a hurry …this is for mindful cleansing ….you want to savour the fragrance and the texture.
  • Then there are the ingredients that have been selected with love to do the job of delivering a deep purifying cleanse, while soothing the skin and mind.

What’s in it

Safflower oil, Sweet Almond oil, Lavender oil, Natural Vitamin E, Rose Geranium oil, Eucalyptus oil, Neroli oil, Peppermint oil.
