I am always looking for an efficient cleanser to remove my makeup, so today I'm going to put the Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil to the test..

The Cleansing oil is enriched with coconut that acts as a natural moisturiser to help keep the skin soft and smooth, as well as argan oil which is rich in antioxidants to nourish the skin.

The cleanser is used on dry ands and massaged into the dry face, and once you've massaged it in to dissolve the makeup, you can add a little water to emulsify before rinsing off. As promised it quickly and easily a 'normal' eye makeup remover, but gently removes my long-wearing makeup, and without irritating my skin. I admit to not using it on my eyes, where I prefer to use a specific eye makeup remover, but I do like that it can be used on the eyes too. And as for the rest of the makeup on my face, it gently removes absolutely everything - and without leaving my skin feeling sticky or tacky, something that I with my combination skin prone to breakouts always worry about when using cleansing oils.

But the cleansing oil leaves my skin feeling very clean, soft and smooth, and in fact so hydrated that you could be tempted to skip applying moisturiser afterwards.

As it is so gentle and moisturising on the skin, it is obviously perfect for those with normal to dry skin types, although I still feel that it is great for my combination skin, although, I also admit that I prefer to double cleanse as I feel that doing so helps keep my breakout prone skin, more blemish free - and experience from other cleansing oils when I've used those on their own, and not double cleansed, my skin has very quickly become congested - however, this Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil definitely serves as a great first cleanse.

It is very concentrated and its thin formula means it spreads easily over the face, so you only need one small pump to cleanse your face, and when doing a tissue test afterwards I can see how efficient it is, as there is no makeup left behind on the skin at all.

I also love that it is made from 100% natural ingredients, which means it also doesn't contain any chemical nasties including parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS, and the only the only fragrance comes from the natural ingredients. So all in all a great cleanser that does what it says.
