Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil Review

I got a full-sized bottle of Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil in my Summer 2016 Beautycon box and just got around to trying it.


What’s to love?

I’m always on the look-out for new and improved ways to remove my make-up so I was curious to try the Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil.

This one smells really good, just like fruit which is nice. I pumped out a few squirts on a cotton make-up pad and went to work. The cleansing oil does an amazing job at removing make-up fast. The main ingredient is mineral oil and I’m assuming that’s what breaks up the make-up. Now the instructions say to work into your face with your fingers so I tried that too. Afterwards I rinsed with water.

After removing my make-up I still had a very light oily feeling. However I think if my skin was dryer the oily feeling would actually be a great benefit. So I think this is a quality product, it’s just not for me.

What I didn’t like.

For me personally I like an astringent type of remover. I’m glad I got this for free because now I know I’m not a fan of an oil remover. For me the oil feels way too heavy on my already oily skin and I just couldn’t kick that greasy feeling. I was also hesitant to use this on my eyes which is weird because I do use astringent based prodcuts to remove mascara without a problem.

Price: $8.99

    I’ve been using a cleansing oil for a few years now and it does feel strange in the beginning. I have very acne prone skin and I was terrified it would break me out but hasn’t! I use an olive oil based one and love it!
