My love affair with Korean skincare is strong but recent pursuits have forced me to stick with my budget. So I have been on the hunt to find the best drugstore oil cleansers out on the market. My first tester was the Trader Joes Facial Cleansing Oil (which you can read about here!) and once I was finished, it was onto the next. Enter the seemingly only oil cleanser I could find at Target that wasn’t over $20.
The Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil is sold as an argan and coconut oil cleanser. The ingredient feature fairly typical oil cleansing ingredients, and a variety of extracts. There is a discernable scent (most likely literally just argan and coconut smells) that bothered me a bit at first but I soon became accustomed to it. If either scent or fragrance bothers you I would seek out another oil cleanser, this particular product may be irritating to the uber sensitive.
The texture of this oil cleanser is much thicker than I was expecting. I would definitely opt for this thick of a texture for the fall/winter time. This oil cleanser easily removes my makeup and excess sebum easily, to the point where on my lazy days I have *gasp* been skipping my water-based cleanser.
Ingredients: Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Crambe abyssinica seed oil, isoamyl laurate, polyglyceryl-2 sesquioleate, fragrance, polyglyceryl-2 caprate, argania spinosa kernel oil, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol
Aside from the highly sensitive and those who cannot stand oil cleansers I would recommend this to anyone looking for a drugstore option for this vital skin care product. All skin types and conditions welcome!
