Oil? As a cleanser? Are you having a laugh?
Well, no, no they are not. Olive oil has been used as a cleanser, for hair, face and body, for centuries, and it also forms part of the base for this micellar cleanser by Decléor.
You cannot mistake the faint aroma, but trust me, it's not as unpleasant as you think. You aren't going to walk around smelling like a well drizzled Mediterranean dish. In some ways, it's a pleasant, comforting scent, and other ingredients also contribute.
Does it work?
Yes it does!
My skin looks and feels clean and fresh. I have very mixed skin, extreme combination, I'd call it. I've had fewer breakouts of both spots and dry patches since using. Despite being an oil, it is quite drying on those areas, mind you, and a good moisturiser is still a must.
It hasn't reduced the amount of oil on my skin, but I have had fewer issues with blocked pores, and my skin looks better. The theory is that the oil 'melts' the build of natural oils to keep pores cleaner.
One squirt of product is good enough for most occasions. If I'm wearing a lot of foundation, eyeliner or waterproof mascara, it needs a little more, but two squirts of this will shift anything. It's the best product I've found for removing waterproof mascara in its entirety.
This bottle is going to last an age, but I will be replacing it when it's empty. It is great value for money, and does a fantastic job.
