Can our affordable cleansing oil dreams be true?
After lamenting the sadly discontinued Nuance by Salma Hayek Cleansing Oil, I've been hoping the drugstore could fill the hole it's left in my heart, and oh, it has!
Palmer's Cocoa Butter has thrown its hat into the cleansing oil game with their Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil, devoid of mineral oil and instead full of nicer ones like soybean, grapeseed, rosehip, etc. It is so so good.
It smells lightly of rosehip and you really only need one pump. It's easy to work onto dry skin and easily turns milky when you add some water. It comes off easily and did a great job of breaking down and dissolving my makeup. I've switched to cleansing with a washcloth/flannel, something I've found makes working with cleansing oils and balms a lot easier, but if your skin is delicate and cannot handle that sort of method, I'm happy to say you should find this product easy to work with still as it washes off well and doesn't leave a film.
And it's like $7.99. Which is more affordable than the Burt's Bees Coconut one and costs less than the Nuance one did. Less than $8 and no mineral oil? Sold. You got me Palmer's, you might now officially be my fave drugstore cleansing oil on the market right now.
Do you need this? If you like cleansing oils that work well and won't break the bank, then yes! You need this! Go forth and get! I'd suggest looking for it at Bed, Bath & Beyond if yours has a beauty section; I've heard rumors it tends to be the cheapest there or at Target.
What's your favorite type of cleansing product and method?
