I finally got around to trying the Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil sample that I got in last month’s Ipsy Glam Bag. (info in italics taken from the Tatcha website)
What it is:
A beautiful blend of Camellia and Rice Bran oils. A gentle, two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser that melts away even waterproof makeup, leaving behind purified, silky soft skin.
Why it’s different:
Nutrient-rich Camellia and Rice Bran oils combine to beautify skin, emulsifying completely with no residue.
I found this to be a mostly gentle cleanser. I say mostly, because it stung my eyes. It also did not remove my waterproof mascara even though it claims to do that. Let’s take a look at the ingredients:
Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Polyglyceryl-10 Dioleate, Polyglyceryl-2 Sesquicaprylate, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Glyceryl Behenate/eicosadioate, Water, Algae Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Alcohol, Fragrance (Natural), Phenoxyethanol.
I think I know why it stung – it has both alcohol and fragrance in it! I had to use another product to remove my waterproof mascara, this is not a deal breaker, but if it claims to be capable of removing waterproof makeup, then it should at least do that!
I prefer the Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil from Farmacy (reviewed here).
Have you tried this cleansing oil? Do you have a favourite one? I want to try more.
My December Ipsy Glam Bag arrived yesterday, so I’ll have an unboxing / unbagging and first impressions on Thursday.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
