This is like an oil cleanser. It most reminds me of Tata Harper’s Nourishing Oil Cleanser. It smells fabulous like grape seed oil. Which is what it’s mostly made of. Add a little apple extract and cucumber oil(which I didn’t even know existed but love the idea). It’s a thicker facial oil texture with a yellow hue. It’s all natural, no questionable ingredients for anyone who’s into all natural or green products.

This comes in a plastic pump, great packaging I have no issues with it. It’s a little pricey at $42 for 15ml. For eye makeup remover. This will remove eye makeup with ease. No problems there. I did find it had a hard time removing regular mascara. I felt I had to scrub harder than I wanted to on my eye area to remove my mascara. Which I don’t like doing. It irritates my eyes and makes them red. This eye wash only removed it for the most part. I still had leftovers I had to remove with a micellar water after. I’m not even talking waterproof mascara. Just plain old regular mascara.

Bummer. I had high hopes for it. Considering it’s–all natural, I love the texture, scent and ingredient list, if this had worked well I would have liked it. Since I had to follow it with a micellar water everytime it felt like what’s the point in this? I would absolutely love this as a facial oil cleanser.
