Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

Hello, hello!

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)

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

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! ❤

  1. Oooo eye stinging is a deal breaker for me. I’m not really into cleansing oils, though. I prefer to have just one wash that does everything. I LOVE the Michael & Todd Honey Oat cleanser for night time! It’s not too moisturizing or drying and it does a pretty decent job of removing makeup (though I’ve never tried it with waterproof makeup).

  2. Too bad this one didn’t keep its ‘removes waterproof make-up’ promise and that it stung your eyes. The latter would be a deal-breaker for me.

    Anyhoo, I wanted to tell you that I found a few Sukin products at my local Boots store. They’ve only had cleansers (which is the last thing I need considering I’m using five different ones and I have lots more), but I’ll check back soon to find out if they’ve got anything else.

  4. for whatever reason, I kept thinking where did I hear about this product. And gosh.. this product is a waste (sounds like) as they didnt do a great job on what it’s suppose to do on your face.
