aeos Cleansing Oil Dé-Maq Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Sorry that I’ve not been keeping to my usual blogging schedule these days, but today I have a review of a cleansing oil that I’ve been using on and off for the past year – the aeos Cleansing Oil Dé-Maq. I received this as a part of my judging package for the 2019-2020 Cert-Clean Clean Beauty Awards and it was one of my top rated facial cleansers that I had judged.

Rapidly reveal a smooth, glowing, nourished complexion, as you remove every last trace of make-up and impurities with our award-winning oil-based cleanser.

A transforming blend of premium-grade organic and biodynamic oils and plant extracts, this revolutionary formula helps normal/dry skin retain optimal moisture with the pure power of plants, as well as balancing oily/combination skin types.

I tend to use oil based cleansers in the colder months, or when I’m doing a double cleanse. The aeos Cleansing Oil is so hydrating and does a great job of removing makeup – even waterproof mascara! It doesn’t leave a greasy film after rinsing. And it has a mild, pleasant herbal scent – I can mainly smell the frankincense.

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Squalane (derived from olives), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Opuntia Ficus Indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil, Boswellia neglecta (Frankincense) Resin Oil, Triticum Spelta (Spelt) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil. Natural constituents of essential oils: Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Eugenol, Farnesol.

Have you tried this cleansing oil? What is your favourite?

Thanks for reading have a beautiful day!

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil from Suntegrity that came in my April Petit Vour subscription box. In my unboxing, I initially said that this was going in my stash, but I ended up testing it out because curiosity got the best of me! [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour April 2018

Vanish away stubborn mineral sunscreen, makeup and dirt without damaging your skin’s natural protective barrier. Formulated with certified organic olive, jojoba, sunflower and camellia oils, this vegan-friendly cleanser is extra gentle on delicate skin and eye area. Antioxidant rich botanicals of rose hips and echinacea leave skin feeling supple and toned while a subtle hint of hibiscus and sweet orange invigorate your senses and transform your ordinary skin cleansing routine into an uplifting daily ritual.

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil

This is a great lightweight cleansing oil. It really does remove sunscreen, and makeup without leaving the skin feeling over-cleansed or greasy. It is super gentle, yet super effective! As an added plus, it smells really nice due to the sweet orange and hibiscus oils.

I have several facial cleansers in my stash right now, so I don’t actually need to purchase the full size at this point in time, but I’ll definitely be using this cleansing oil up on days when I feel like a need extra cleansing and don’t want to irritate my sensitive skin.

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.

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

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!

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

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! ❤


Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil

I’ve been using the Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil from Farmacy at night for two weeks now. This is the first product from Farmacy that I’ve tried. This is also the first cleansing oil that I’ve used.

The cleansing oil has a mildly herbal smell. Here’s the instructions for use taken from the website:

Use daily to remove makeup and surface impurities. Pour a small amount into palm and blend with a few drops of water. Mix until a silky milk forms. Massage onto skin with upward and outward motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

I have to comment on how gorgeous the packaging is, you slide the outer sleeve off to find an origami type box that opens up – just look at how beautiful it is!

Key ingredients:

Powered By EchinaceaGreenEnvy™. A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEnvy™ contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant which helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. […] Cichoric Acid also normalizes the skin pigmentation process to promote a more evenly toned complexion.

 Safflower Oil, a natural solvent for oil-based makeup, helps remove makeup gently. […] Super moisturizing Sunflower Oil leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft with no greasy residue, while also aiding in the repair of the skin barrier function with essential fatty acids.
This is a beautiful cleansing oil, with a very mild herbal scent, and it really does remove  make-up, although I do go in after with some grapeseed oil to get any stubborn waterproof mascara bits off my lashes. My skin feels soft, smooth, and moisturized, but not at all greasy.
I think that this would be a good one for all skin types, but especially for sensitive skin like mine.
I’m planning on trying out a few more products from Farmacy in the new year once I’ve finished tested out the things I currently have in the review stash.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
