Expensive, but worth it, especially for oily skin.

This is a great product. I am a complete convert to oil cleansing, finding it much healthier for my oily skin than soap based cleansers.
It’s irrational I know, but using an oil based products seems to prevent my skin from producing excess oils.
For ages, I was mixing my own oil cleansing oils from a recipe I found online, but when this became a little tiresome I started looking for a pre-made replacement. Most of the ones I tried irritated my eyes if I tried to use them to remove eye make up, but this one doesn’t irritate my eyes at all and will remove all make up, including waterproof mascara.
It’s a bit expensive, but not too bad considering it’s Elemis, and a little bit goes a very long way, so as long as you’re careful and only use a couple of pumps for each face wash, the bottle will last for months.
I find the best way to use it is to loosen your face with a warm flannel, then massage the oil into your face, and then soak the flannel in warm water again and gently wipe your face clean.
It leaves your skin feeling soft but tightened. Removes oils, but doesn’t over dry.
Also has a pleasant smell, although not as lovely as some of the other products in the Elemis range.
