Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil

I bought this Simple Hydrating Cleansing oil, actually 3 of them during a sale that Chemist Warehouse was having some time ago. Now I had been content using a mix of coconut and olive oil as a makeup remover, but I'd read such good things about this cleansing oil and I really wanted to try it for myself. Of course a 50% off sale at Chemist Warehouse at an already affordable price had me quick to order.

Taken from Simple Skincare- "...our rinse off cleansing oil is made with 100%  pure grapeseed oil, which is light in texture and infused with skin loving ingredients such as vitamins A and E that leaves all skin types thoroughly cleansed, instantly hydrated and soft."

The cleansing oil comes in a 125 ml plastic bottle with flip-top lid dispenser. I love the green theme on the packaging. The oil has a fresh slightly herbal scent. Being mostly grapeseed oil, this product is an oil of thin consistency.

To apply, I simply massage a small amount into my skin, adding a little more when cleansing my eye makeup. It is such a light weight oil, yet melts away makeup with ease. Being an emulsifying oil a little water can be added which turns the cleansing oil into a creamy lather, ensuring that the face is sufficiently cleansed.

I use a wet face washer to remove the oil, which is much less effort than removing the thicker oils that I am used to. Although not needed, I do finish with my regular creamy cleanser.

I love that the Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil gently removes makeup while managing to also nourish the skin. I'm going to have to try skipping the second cleanse, because I really like the way my skin feels after using this cleanser.
