Absolutely love this stuff, it breaks up all the makeup, including too faced eye primer, which is the hardest stuff to get off
Ok so I've recently been obsessed with Boscia. I picked up the Cool Cleansing Oil at Sephora and I couldn't wait to get home and try it. The first time I used it was in the shower (stupid me) and I found that, even though it removed my make up (eye makeup and all), I didn't find it overly spectacular, I even broke out a little...I was a little skeptical. Then it hit me... It's an oil, it is hydrophobic - don't mix with water...Duh.
The next time I tried it, I thoroughly washed and dried my hands. I applied a pump full and massaged it onto my face. Oh. My. God. The oil formed a nice smooth barrier between my hands and my skin. I honestly stood in front of my mirror for a solid five minutes, massaging my face. Yes - it felt THAT good. I rinsed it off with warm water (rinse a few times to ensure all of the oil is gone), and finished off with Boscia Clear Complexion Tonic (best tonic ever - I used to LOVE Clinique, but this is much much much softer on skin).
After using it for about a week, I noticed great results. I like to switch it up with Boscia's Clear Complexion Cleanser and Boscia's Detoxifying Black Cleanser (I'm a converted Boscia whore?). I have a fairly regimented skincare routine. I like to use this product at night and the other two in the mornings (I switch them up every day).
I love the smell of this product, it has a nice refreshing hint of eucalyptus and it slightly tingles. I also love how gently it is on your skin (formula wise and the fact that it doesn't "pull" on your skin when you massage).
Bonus points because it's in a pump bottle (less waste of product = it will last longer, no germs!). It also has a lock which clips on and off the pump, this makes it awesome for travelling and ensures no mess! It's a little on the pricey side, but one pump goes a long way!
I'd highly recommend this product. It's so gentle, yet it gets rid of everything! It's even great under my eyes, which are super sensitive (warning: use at your own risk). I was completely weary of oils, but now I'm in love!
I've been a DHC cleansing oil user for years, but finally decided to branch out and try this cleanser because of the great reviews. It does a fantastic job of removing all of my makeup, including waterproof mascara, gel eyeliner, and smoky eyeshadow. I find it gentle like most cleansing oils but also that it doesn't leave a film behind after rinsing. So far, I haven't noticed any adverse affects on my skin, which was a concern because of the mention of "cool" in the product's name and menthol in the ingredients list, but so far so good. I would consider repurchasing when I run out.
It was too oily, did not like the feeling after washing my face. I like when it feels fresh and smooth - this cleanser was dissapointing.
This stuff is fantastic! It completely dissolved my makeup and rinses clean with no residue. This cleanser smells great and feels nice and cooling on your skin. The scent is kind of minty/herby. The packaging is really nice as well. It's a sturdy plastic bottle with a pump dispenser, but what I love is that it has a really reliable lock that snaps on so that if you're traveling with it, there's little to no chance of breakage or leaking. I use it alone and with my Clarisonic and get great results.
I love this product as well. It's dissolved all my makeup (I use Estee Lauder Double Wear) with ease. Love the way my skin looks after I use this cleanser.
i LOVE this stuff. I didn't really research prior to picking this up at Sephora, but after the first time i used it, i was in love. I've gone through 2 bottles of this and it's amazing
- This is an oil-based face cleanser, so you must start with a dry face. All you need is ONE small pump of this and spread onto your skin.
- After washing with warm water, my skin is so soft, it doesn't just remove the makeup but it purifies my face with no irritation at all.
- I still go ahead with my regular face wash after using this.
- 1 bottle lasts me about 3 months.
- I purchased this for $31 CAD, but when I have a chance to go to the US, I grab it for $29 US.
- Don't be afraid to use this oil-based cleanser if you have oily skin. they will cancel eachother out. I have an oily t-zone, and I have had no problems, only positive results.
irritated my skin and gave me red spots.. this is strange since i never broke out with any oil
This is a great cleansing oil. I've used it when my skin was super oily and acne prone (late summer and early fall), super dry and flaky (late fall to early winter) and slightly dry but more or less balanced (now) and it's never broken me out. It takes one full pump to remove completely my skincare stuff, primer, foundation (even Revlon Colorstay!), concealer, powder, blush and bronzer and another half pump to remove eye make (eyeshadow, liner, non-wp mascara), with no smudges left behind in the morning. This stuff isn't cheap ($31CAD for 5 oz/150 ml at Sephora), but I bought mine on August 6, 2012 and I've used it at least 5 times a week since then and I still have maybe an inch of it left in the bottle, so probably enough to last me till the end of February. That'll be almost 7 months! So it works out to just under $4.50/month which is pretty damn cheap! Definite rebuy once I work my way through the other makeup removers in my stash.
This stuff is just bad. Didn't remove any of my eye makeup, and I only wear mascara. I noticed a bunch of little red bumps all over my face after I used it. Overall this was a disaster on my sensitive skin.
