The heaviest oil you ever did feel: Melvita Milky Cleansing Oil


I get through a lot of cleansing oil.  Bucketloads.  It's my preferred makeup removal method of choice, and I quite often use it in the morning with my Clarisonic too, so I really do go through a lot of it.  Despite having declared my love for Origins Clean Energy cleansing oil, I still try new ones out on a regular basis.

The latest is this Melvita Milky Cleansing oil, which comes in a pump topped bottle (so far so good) and has a delicate rosy scent (even better).  It's a very thick, heavy oil with a golden colour, and unfortunately I'm not loving it.  It's so heavy that I find I have to constantly splash my face with water to try to get it to turn to milk and wash off.  Eventually I give up and rub the remaining residue off with a flannel or cleansing cloth.

Unless you have seriously dry skin and like an oil which leaves a bit of a residue, avoid this.  Otherwise, you'll find it at the Melvita website, where it costs £20.

    1. Cleansing oils wise, I love Origins Clean Energy, Shu Uemura, or Superfacialist (review on that coming up soon).

      Skincare oils, Sanctuary Therapist's Secret, REN serum oil, or Clarins Blue Orchid are my favourites.

      What kind of oils are you interested in?

  2. Thanks gemma, is the superfacialist una brennan? I like cleaning oils and treatment oils but i'm on a budget. So happy to try things that are not too expensive.

    1. Yep, it is - very good for £10.99, has a lot in common with the more expensive Origins oil. Definitely try the Sanctuary Therapist's Secret, it's a pretty well priced oil - if you're looking for something simple and budget friendly you could try plain sweet almond oil alone :)
