l'oreal skin perfection miracle cleansing oil

L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil

Meet the newest addition to my skincare regime. Cleansing oils seem to be all the rage at the moment, and eager to see what all the fuss was about, I hopped along to Boots with every intention of buying the Una Brennan Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil. After searching high and low and still not finding it (I don't think my local store stocks the brand), I settled for L'Oreal's version as it was on offer for a mere fiver. It comes with a pump too.
I've been using the cleansing oil almost daily for two weeks and have barely used any up, which is a nice change from realising that three quarters of my bottle of Bioderma is gone after a month. I typically use two pumps all over my face, and an extra one for my eyes -  I was worried it would sting but it doesn't at all. The fact that it removes almost every scrap of makeup in seconds is brilliant too, as I really don't like the feeling of oils on my skin; I tried the DHC Cleansing Oil before and didn't get on with it purely for this reason. It doesn't leave any residue behind and removes even waterproof mascara, although if I'm wearing a lot of eye makeup I tend to do a double cleanse and follow the oil up with a hot cloth cleanser.
So where does this leave micellar water? Well, I still keep some handy because I'm useless at liquid eyeliner, and micellar solution and a cotton bud manages to tidy everything up nicely. But if you're like me and like getting your makeup off as quickly as possible then get yourself a bottle of cleansing oil quicksmart.

  1. I've been wanting to try out a cleansing oil for a while now. This sounds nice but I don't like the sound of mineral oil in the ingredients..

    1. yeah i can see that the mineral oil can be a bit of a bummer for some people, but it's a cheap filler ingredient in most makeup removers. personally my skin doesn't have an adverse reaction to it so i'm fine with using it xo

  2. I use the micellar water and love it! I did consider the oil but because I have quite oily skin I didn't think it would feel very nice on my face, what do you think? Thanks for the comment on my blog by the way (: xx

    1. oh yes, i saw that l'oreal do a micellar water in their range too, i wonder how it compares to bioderma as I think it's quite a bit cheaper. I have combination skin and it doesn't do anything in terms of overloading the oily parts of my face as once you wash it off there's no residue or anything, but it doesn't leave the face feel stripped and squeaky clean like gel cleansers do. xo

  4. I'm always worried an oil would leave my skin feeling clammy and well oily(?) but I'm intrigued to try one!
