Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Cleansing Oil By Una Brennan

Although perfectly happy with The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil I have been using for years, I no longer live close to a Body Shop store and Boots is far more convenient for me to get to. So while I still bulk buy my camomile cleanser I have had to try a couple of cleansing oils more easily available and the Super Facialist Vitamin C Cleansing Oil has been my favourite of the bunch. 
I have dehydrated skin with dry and oily areas, but the reason I go for an oil based cleanser is not really for hydrating purposes, I just find them more gentle on my skin and they tend to break down makeup more easily. I normally use this while in the shower, and always in the evenings as it does leave a slight oily texture on my skin which I am not keen on during the day. For my morning cleanse I use the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which is great at cleansing my skin but it can't remove makeup like this can. The cleansing oil removes waterproof mascara with ease and you really don't need to rub, just use gentle circular motions on your eyes and rinse under the water and you won't wake up with panda eyes. If only this came with a pump it would be perfect. I also use cleansing oils when shaving sometimes, if you have dry or sensitive skin on your legs this will make the shave much smoother and cause less irritation to your skin. This retails at £10.99 in boots stores and can be purchased online here
