Samples #5: DHC Deep Cleansing Oil


Due to using The Body Shop Camomile Cleasning Oil for quite some time now and being very much in love with the stuff I somehow had really high expectations for this DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. However, I found that this was most definitely not the product for me, or anyone with oily skin for that matter. In fact I just didn't like this at all if I have to be brutally honest. 

First of all, it felt like I was smothering actual cooking oil all over my face. The texture was so greasy and heavy and the smell just wasn't to my taste at all. To be fair some of the best products don't have a very nice smell so of course giving it the benefit of the doubt I went in with warm water and washed my face. Instead of emulsifying the product just got more slippery and greasy and when I dried my face with a wash cloth I felt as though there was still a lot of residue despite rinsing my face with water 3 times! 

The worst part was when I noticed that half way through the day all of my make up had virtually slid off of my face and I looked really oily! For someone who has the matte look down to a T this is not something that normally happens, and I always find my foundations and primers ect do a great job of lasting the day. The only thing I can think of is that the oily residue from this product made my make up slide off my face. 

Safe to say I will be not buying the full sized version of this product as after using this 3 times it still seems to leave oily residue on my skin. This might work for you if you have dry skin, but if you are oily or wear a lot of make up during the day then I would avoid this as it is not suited for you at all. Overall I am so disappointed that this didn't work for me, but I still have a huge bottle of my Body Shop stuff to keep me happy.

What do you guys think of cleansing oils? Any favourite brands?

  1. I really love this but after I rinse it off with water I use the DHL pore cleanser which leaves my skin squeaky clean. Then I use my normal serum, moisturiser and primer. So maybe this is just not great as a standalone? strandonbeauty.com

  2. I think when you use oils, you're meant to wash them off like a hot cloth cleanser so by soaking a flannel or muslin cloth in hot water and then wiping it off before rinsing, as that actually gets rid of the oil :)

    1. I always use a fave cloth after washing my face though and it didn't help! Also comparing it with other oils which were so much more effective for my skin type ! Xxxx

  3. I have this sample from a beauty box and I have never got round to using it. I have super oily skin so it sounds like this may do the same thing as it does for you! I will give it a try but will be wary after reading this review! Great honest post xx

  5. I've never tried a cleansing oil, I'm scared of the exact thing that happened to you here. It's such a shame when you spend money on a product only for it to be a disappointment, if only the UK had returns policies like they do in the US.
