DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review

Press Sample Affiliate Link

The One Oil to Rule Them All, that's probably the best way to describe the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. A little dramatic (and perhaps Tolkien would not appreciate my appropriation of one of his most famous lines), but this Cleansing Oil is extremely popular and well-loved for a good reason and count me in as one of the fans.

I mentioned this cleansing oil ages ago in my June Favorites and decided to give extra time to review it and give my thoughts. I've been wearing makeup more often now (before this, extra sleep was more of a priority during the school year) and so I've had to take more effort to make sure it's removed. This does the job easily and without any extra effort.

Where to Purchase: DHCcare.com (affiliate)
Price: $28.00 for 6.7 oz
Do they test on animals?: The company does not.
Packaging: The cleansing oil comes in a plastic bottle with a pump.

Formula:


This is perfect for removing makeup and cleansing my skin without stripping or overdrying it. It rinses off cleanly and I personally don't feel the need to follow up with another cleanser. I also appreciate that I can use this to remove eye makeup without worrying about foggy vision and stinging eyes. Previously, I was a user of the Kose Softymo Cleansing Oil and while I would use it to remove eye makeup, I had to be careful lest it get into my eyes and I'd have to wait a few seconds for my vision to clear. If you've ever tried using straight up olive oil to remove your makeup and got it into your eyes, you'll know what I mean. 


I have no such problems with the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil because of the combo of olive oil and its emulsifiers (the ingredients used to mix the water and oil together for easier rinsing off) that helps prevent it. One pump (sometimes just a half), and it's enough to clean my face.


If you're not familiar with cleansing oils, here's how you use it: Start with a dry face and apply the cleansing oil straight onto your dry skin. Rub to break up and makeup on your face and wet your hands. Slowly massage your wet hands onto your face until the oil starts emulsifying with the water turning white. Then proceed to rinse off the white mixture.


Conclusion:


Since using it, I've noticed that my skin doesn't feel stripped or overdried, it doesn't make my skin more oily, and it hasn't caused me to break out. I feel like it's been helping my skin remain free of acne! Skincare can be a fickle thing but if you're looking for a cleansing oil, you can't do wrong with the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. I'm already planning on getting another bottle once this one runs out (which it won't for a while!). It is a little expensive but completely worth it in my opinion!



When it comes to cleansers, have you ever tried a cleansing oil? If so, do you have a favorite?

  3. Hi Mai, I love the DHC Cleansing Oil but saw it as one of the companies that test on Paula's Choice. I'm a little confused!

  4. It sounds like a nice cleansing oil! I keep meaning to try something like this with olive oil or coconut oil. I've tried coconut oil for makeup remover and liked the results.

  5. Hey Carina, I researched it some more and it looks like though the parent company doesn't test, they do sell in China which means they're prone to third party testing in the country. I'll be sure to update the post to have it reflect this, thanks for commenting!!

  18. I have a little sample of this, and I really like it. I also use the Julep cleansing oil, and enjoy that, too. Not sure which I like more. I should test that. I really love using cleaning oils with my Konjac sponge. Makes me feel really exfoliated and clean without stripping my skin.
