Review: DHC Cleansing Oil (secret’s with the Olive Oil!)

Although I have been using creamier cleansers, I still always have a Cleansing Oil on the go. I’ve pretty much tried them all, from the brands that can be bought in the UK (like Nude, Laura Mercier’s, Nars, Shu Uemura, RMK etc.) and the Japanese/Asian releases.

Once you’ve tried a few cleansing oils, they are all pretty similar. Everyone has different skin so guess what – you’ll have to try a few to find yours.

What has happened to my skin is that its growing less tolerant of cleansing oils which is making my skin itch and feel tight. I picked up the DHC cleansing oil a few weeks ago because its an oldie, but goodie.

It doesn’t have a nasty smell and is quite a nice, thick texture. Importantly its not breaking me out in any rashes, although I have to say, it struggled a little with getting off my waterproof make up. No biggie – this formula is older than many of the ones mentioned earlier in the post – and I’d rather it struggled with a bit of make up than stripped my face of moisture.

They Say:

Water-soluble Deep Cleansing Oil contains a rich blend of skin-loving vitamin E and hydrating olive oil. It helps unclog pores by clearing impurities and make-up, leaving your face a grime-free zone. Rinses away to help leave skin fresh and clean. Olive oil and vitamin E fight free radicals.

Olive oil! Long live Olive Oil!

Its on sale at the moment for £13.50, well worth it if you are giving cleansing oil a go.

    I did really like DHC oil until I cottoned on to the fact I could just fill up an empty muji bottle with some extra virgin olive oil with some vitamin e capsules from a health food shop and dance about with money saved. x
