It is no secret that I have done a complete 360 and went from loathing oil products to not being able to live without them, okay slight exaggeration but you get what I mean.
My two go to cleansers are Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel -review link (I've used more tubes than I care to count) and the new kid on my cleansing block Nude Perfect Cleansing Oil - review link but recently launched is the new L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil which has received nothing but rave reviews. The question I wanted to answer is could this budget friendly cleansing oil rival my pricier alternatives? Let's see shall we...
L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil is a fruity scented cleansing oil that comes packaged in a large (150ml) pump style dispenser bottle. The idea is that L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil will instantly dissolve all traces of make-up including waterproof mascara and general dirt and grime.
Much like any oil based cleanser you apply a couple of pumps to dry skin, massage into the skin and eyelashes then wipe off using a wet muslin cloth. Again like other oil cleansing products that have come before L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil once the oil comes into contact with water it turns into a milky emulsion to ensure the skin is deeply cleansed.
Texture wise on the skin this feels silken and not overly greasy (with an oil product it is of course always going to be somewhat oily/greasy) but deeply hydrating, I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who has dry skin as it cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural moisture levels.
It does make light work of removing all traces of make-up and does indeed remove waterproof mascara albeit stinging my eyes a little but my eyes are fairly sensitive truth be told.
A truly brilliant cleansing oil at a great price but it is a shame about the high content of mineral oil.
