Also tested out this past week is this teeny tiny 7ml sample of Derma E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil.
This is a pass for me, even if I normally love all things rose and all things Derma E. Sorry, not so sorry!
While I like the texture and smell of this oil, which is faintly rosy and is thin in consistency, it takes me 2-3 rounds of 5-peso sized pumps of oil to remove my light daily makeup (BB Cream with SPF). I attempted to remove just eye makeup with this to somehow just commit it to just that job, but it stung my eyes. I won't even be able to testing this out for removing liquid foundation because I already ran out of the 7ml sample after just 3 days.
Also, I noticed my skin to be more dehydrated than usual but it could just be my monthly cycle. Then again, the traditional oil cleansing method tends to dehydrate my skin based on prior experience. It could also be that the method had to be repeated 2x and more, which led to dehydrating my skin further. I had to wipe off multiple times because the oil wasn't able to get off all of my makeup at one time, which meant that I had to use more product and I had to get extra aggressive with my skin.
Finally, the full sized bottle is only 60ml. It is so small! Considering I have to use so much of this to get light makeup off, I estimate I'll be finishing off a full bottle every 2-3 weeks! The price of the full size is PHP700++. Just, no. Sorry for giving a negative review but, to me, it isn't worth the price or the trouble. I need something more efficient and economical for regular use.(I'm #mindfulbeauty that way!)
Sad because the ingredients are all clean and, green, and supposed to work beautifully in concept, which is why I was so interested in trying this initially. Alas, my skin and wallet say no.
Oily skins or anyone who doesn't wear makeup might appreciate this better or those who invest in luxe cleansers will find this enjoyable enough to use.
