The word Oil on any kind of cleanser, especially a facial cleanser, scares the buh-jesus out of me. I avoid it like the plague. However, I came across the Philosophy's Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleaning Oil and given all the chatter about oil cleansers right now, I decided to give it a go.
It's kind of awesome.
It feels a bit bizarre to be smothering oil all over your face in an effort to remove your makeup, but I swear, this shizz works. It's gentle, it smells pleasant, and it does an amazing job of removing makeup, especially that stubborn eye makeup.
I like a dramatic eye, which typically requires some sort of eyeliner and Eyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is a staple in my makeup bag. I love it, but it's a real bitch to remove. It requires a lot of eye makeup remover, along with a bunch of scrubbing, which leads to very red and irritated eyes and half the time, I still end up looking like a raccoon! When I use Philosophy's oil cleanser, there is very little, if any scrubbing, and zero irritated eyes. Success!
