AMW Reviews: Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil

Cleansing Oil --- an integral part of my skin care regimen because I use BB cream on a daily basis.

After I finished the Etude House Cleansing Dream Light Cleansing Oil (which I wouldn't mind repurchasing by the way), I searched for my "cleansing oil" backups and found the next in line!

Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil

Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil says ---
Designed for all skin types, this lightweight, emollient oil effectively removes all traces of makeup and cleanses skin while maintaining natural moisture levels. Skin feels smooth to the touch - and is perfectly prepared for the skincare treatments that follow.

Size: 200ml
Main Ingredients: olive and jojoba oils, ginger root

AMW says ---
  • Cute simple packaging with twist open/close pump.
  • Has a nice herbal smell that's relaxing as you massage.
  • Can remove hard-headed mascaras even the one from Majolica Majorca!  
  • Does not blur out my vision.
  • No oily after-feel.
  • The consistency feels light, almost water-like!
  • Skin feels clean and soft right after cleansing.
  • Will work for all types of skin.
  • No allergies or skin irritations.
  •  If you are not used to spending much on make-up removal, this may put a big hole inside your pocket!
  • Will not remove all traces of hardcore gel liners! When I say hardcore, its HARDCORE plus all the tight line!
I have used a good chunk of cleansing oils!  I have been a loyal Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil user and have gulped finished 4 huge bottles!  After my Korea trip, I've been testing a lot of Korean Cleansing Oils and I am quite impressed with them which opened up the door to try out other cleansing oils.  

The Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil works just like what cleansing oils are supposed to do!  It removes make-up, it feels light, it makes my skin soft and bright right after cleansing and best of all, it has a lovely scent which other cleansing oils out there do not have.

A perfect indulgence, but if you're on a tight budget, there are cheaper alternatives out there that may take a longer time to work but still, a saving is A SAVING!

from Bobbi Brown
  • Pump a liberal amount into your hands. 
  • Gently apply to your dry face, lightly rubbing lashes into the oil to remove eye makeup.
  • Massage your face with wet hands. 
  • Rinse with warm water. 
from AMW
  • Keep in mind to always apply this with DRY skin.
  • If I may add, pump 2-3 times if you wear less makeup.
  • Pump3-5 times if you're wearing heavy makeup.
  • Do not be in a hurry when it comes to cleansing, I've read somewhere that it takes the same amount of time you put makeup on to remove them!
  • Close your eyes all throughout and gently massage the oil on your lids, the lashes, and gently feel the mascara slide off, keep on massaging until you feel your "original" lashes, emulsify, continue massaging then gently wash off with water. 
Will I repurchase?

Anyone who wants to indulge on a Cleansing Oil.  All skin types.

  1. i love it too! just wish that they would reduce the price one day tho :(

  2. Nice review, Nikki. I didn't know BB has cleansing oil na din. :)

  3. ay if it won't even remove their own long wearing gel liner, ahmmm then it's just too pricey compared to baby oil LOL ;-)

  4. Hi Nikki

    Does this contain mineral oil?

  5. Thanks for the review! I'll get some when I finish my Paul and Joe Cleansing Milk. BTW, I always use a separate eye makeup remover - Suqqu is a fave.

  6. @xin I agree, but its worth it as you need only a few! I saw your experiment! Great job!

  7. @Pammy Ako, I heard about it late last year :)

  8. @Marge Well, my bad, it does remove hard core gel liners but those that are almost inside the eye area, siyempre its difficult to put the oil there right? So yeah, that's why you still have to use separate eye makeup remover! :)

  9. @Lavender I tried researching about it, but base on the main ingredients, it seems like it does not include mineral oil! But you can always check with the counter :D

  10. @Jamilla Camel I know, I do use separate eye makeup remover as well but for the test, I tried using this on the eye area too just like what the product instruction advised! :) I heard so many raves about SUQQU, too bad we don't have it here!

  11. Is there only one variant? Thanks

  12. Still haven't tried this oil and it's been on my list for quite some time. Grr!

  13. @BI can't wait to read your thoughts about this when you get to try this!

  14. Thank you very much for the information of the note
    I have found it interesting for my blog, I hope I can use, good work .
