I am a makeupholic, and I wear makeup every day. Even if it is just a casual day, I have makeup on. Having said that, I need to use a makeup remover every day as well. There were times when l just passed out with my makeup on and I got one or two breakouts. So I make sure that I remove my makeup every night. Over the years, I have used many cleansers but have never stuck to one. This time around I am using Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, and it has been over a month.

I first started using the smaller bottle but then, seeing how well it works, I also got the bigger bottle. I carry the small bottle in my bag and keep the bigger bottle at home. The bigger bottle is a little bulky, so I don’t carry it around. But it is travel-friendly as the dispenser can be locked securely by turning it the other way.

Yes, it is quite expensive, but after experiencing the results, I feel like it is worth it. I have dry skin, so it is essential for me to get every bit of moisture that I can. Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil does not make my skin feel stretchy or out off moisture, and that is one of the reasons I adore it.

I use this cleansing oil every night to remove my makeup and call it a night. It works very well in eliminating everything, even eye makeup, without any irritation. I never had any issues with dryness, irritation, or breakouts when using this oil. I pump it 4-5 times on my palm and start rubbing it gently on my bare skin. The oil becomes a little creamy once it comes in contact with water and rinses off like a face wash. I don’t need to rewash my face nor do I need a toner to set my face. This cleansing oil has made my night routine easier and faster.

So did I find the ultimate makeup cleanser?
Probably. But quite honestly, I do have the urge to try a different product, which I will after I run out of these two bottles. Then again, if the next product doesn’t work like this one, I will stick to this cleansing oil from Bobbi Brown.

PROS

Pleasant fragrance

Great packaging

Does not dry out your skin

Effective on light makeup

Does not irritate your skin

CONS

Expensive

Not very effective on waterproof makeup


Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is good for the days I wear light makeup that isn't long-wearing. So, if you're someone who wears light makeup only, this will be a good option. However, the price is too heavy.

Though it works well, I am not head over heels in love with it because it is not good enough for me. I sometimes wear waterproof makeup on my eyes. And that is when I have an issue with this cleansing oil. The oil dissolves everything, but to remove all the makeup, I need to keep massaging my face for at least two minutes. I have used products that work better and faster than this one and are also cheaper.

I will only recommend it to those beauties who wear light makeup.

4.7/5

PROS

Makes your skin glow

Does not cause breakouts

Easy to use

Does not dry out your skin

Removes makeup effectively

Paraben-free

CONS

Expensive


I use Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil both in the morning and at night. Normally, I would never use a cleansing oil in the morning, but after I got this cleansing oil, it has become a part of my daily routine. I love how it provides a light filter-like canvas for my very dry skin. It also does a very fine job of removing makeup.

It smells amazing and feels amazing too! Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is one of the best cleansers I have used so far.

2/5

PROS

Paraben-free

Attractive packaging

Removes makeup effectively

The pump can be locked

CONS

Extra effort needed to remove waterproof makeup

Requires warm water to wash off

Leaves behind an oily film


I really love Bobbi Brown's products, but with this cleansing oil, I am very confused. I have oily skin, and if I don’t wash it with a face wash and warm water after using this oil, my skin is left with a thin oily film which is very disappointing. Makeup remover wipes work so much better for me. Sad to say but this product from Bobbi Brown is something I will never repurchase nor recommend.
