DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review

I have been looking for a really good makeup remover for ages now, I usually use facial wipes and then another cleanser after that to wash off any excess makeup that it missed.  I then usually follow up by using eye make up remover on top of that, all in all a bit of a scutter.

I received my first ever 'She Said Beauty Box' last week - and to everyone else who has received one you already know that in it was this little product:-

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

Which as you can guess is the basis of this review 

First impressions:-

Packaging - nice and simple packaging - straight to the point.  When I first took off the lid I removed it carefully as I was quite expecting it to explode all over me but I was pleasantly surprised to see that there was a sort of stopper with a tiny hole so only a miniscule amount at any time could come out.  

This product was easy to apply, you just dab the bottle 2-3 times on the palm of you hands  - as the instructions state 'dispense onto dry hands, and massage onto a dry face'.  The oil literally dissolves all the make up.  
I put some makeup swatches on the back of my hands to show you.
Picture 1 - Eye Shadow, Benetint and Peach Lipstick
Picture 2 - I have rubbed on some oil over the swatches horizontally.
Picture 3 - I ran water from the tap over it and patted dry.  You can actually see clearly the area which was dissolved in the oil

Pros:  This is a blend of Vitamin E and Olive Oil, it cleanses your face and removes your make up properly, it unclogs your pores and leaves your face feeling clean and fresh.  I really have noticed a difference in my complexion this last week, my skin is visibly clearer and it feels really soft.  I was so confident in my skin this morning, I actually only wore a tiny bit of Maybelline BB Cream and some Mascara to do the school run and that is not the 'norm for me'

Cons:  I will say that I didn't like the smell of this, it does just smell of olive oil.  Also when rubbing this into your face it does feel a bit sticky and greasy, though once rinsed this isn't a problem.

This product comes in 3 different sizes which can be bought from the DHC website

200ml - £18.50 (definitely considering buying this)
70ml - £9.50
30ml - £3.50 (this is the one in the box)

The larger products come with pumps. 


Packaging 5/5
Product 4/5
Value for money 5/5

  5. Having already spent a tremendous quantity of one's day in line, no person wants to have for the front only to get out that they've got wasted their day over a useless endeavor once you move into the home,
