When it comes to removing my makeup, I’m not normally a fan of cleansing oils. I find that they’re not usually effective at removing *all* of my makeup and can leave behind a breakout-inducing greasy film on my skin. However, Caudalie is a skincare brand that I have tried and loved in the past so I really wanted to give their Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil a go to see what it was like – and I’m *so* glad I did.
The Caudalie Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil is made using a gentle yet effective formula that claims to dissolve all types of makeup, including waterproof mascara. It is advertised as being suitable for sensitive skin (which I sometimes have) and promises to leave your skin feeling perfectly cleansed and refreshed with none of the greasiness that many other cleansing oils leave behind.
Caudalie recommends that you use 3 pumps of the oil and warm this between your palms before massaging it onto dry skin with your eyes closed, which sounds easy enough.
I like my makeup removers to be quick and easy to use. After all, removing your makeup isn’t the most fun or interesting thing to do. I normally use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove my makeup as it’s the most fast and effective way of removing my makeup – or so I thought. The Caudalie Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil is *A-M-A-Z-I-N-G* and so much better if you’re like me and like to get rid of your makeup fast! After massaging the oil into my skin for a few seconds I could feel all my makeup instantly breaking down – including my mascara. I have recently been using the Benefit BadGAL BANG! mascara and although it is great at adding volume to my lashes, it’s not usually the easiest mascara to remove at the end of the day. However, the Caudalie Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil has no trouble at all in completely removing the mascara, which I was super impressed by!
After massaging the oil into my skin and rinsing it off, my skin is left feeling really soft, clean and fresh – and as promised, there was no greasy film left behind!
