Who'd have thought it, using oil to clean your skin? Crazy, right?... Wrong! I was super intrigued when the No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil was released, and couldn't wait to try it. This is actually a surprisingly wonderful product which has worked it's way into my everyday skin routine and replaced my usual cleanser over the past couple of weeks.
First up I should mention that if you do have particularly oily skin, this product probably isn't going to work too well for you, but will work wonders on normal - dry skin. (For reference - my skin type is normal-combination.) To apply, use the super handy and practical pump mechanism to squeeze a few drops onto your finger tips and massage gently in circular motions into your face and neck. Although the oil is lightweight, it makes easy work of what I can only describe as "melting/dissolving" any traces of makeup and dirt from your face to offer a deep-cleansed feel. You should then rinse away using warm water... when you're doing this the oil turns a milky colour and washes off easily leaving no greasy residue. I love using this as a night time cleanser, because it leaves my skin feeling soft, nourished and with a healthy, radiant glow. I have noticed over the weeks that the general condition and feel of my skin has improved - The dry patches around my nose are no more!
I actually think this is a pretty good price at £11.00 for 150ml, but if you're lucky you might get your hands on some Boots vouchers with £5 off No 7 skincare, making this a bargainous £6!
