Wait for it… I’ve overhauled my skincare routine. Shocked? Me too, considering I’ve used the exact same skincare for a solid 4 years (!). I’m preparing a natural skincare edit (get excited, there are some phenomenal finds) so there is much experimenting in the land of ShamFrip.
As a teaser, I figure I’d introduce you to my new favourite cleansing oil. If you recall, I’ve been using FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil for yonks but recently I threw a tantrum – Why so hard to find? Why so expensive? I go through it like water. Screw that.
Clearly the universe was listening because that day, the Jurlique Cleansing Oil arrived in the post. Emulsifying oil cleansers in the natural department are ridiculously rare, which is a pity because they’re really the best/easiest/most effective way to remove a full face of makeup. New to emulsifying cleansing oils? Watch this video to see how they work.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Jurlique brand, they’re Australian based (YEAH BOI!) and the perfect balance of elegance and natural skincare ethos. If you like to collect pretty things on your vanity, Jurlique has you covered.
The things I look for in a cleansing oil:
- Thin consistency (some oils, like DHC, are rather viscous and tend to drag my delicate skin)
- Total makeup removal (no remaining traces whatsoever)
- Doesn’t sting the eyes (I remove much of my eye makeup with a cleansing oil so this is imperative)
- Rinses clean (IE: no excessively oily film after rinsing)
The Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil ticks all the boxes; a thin cleansing oil that is supremely gentle and removes all traces of makeup – black smokey eyes and waterproof mascara dissolve without any effort. It rinses clean but if you’re particularly clog prone, treat it as a makeup remover and wash face as per usual.
Edited to add: The pump has a lock mechanism, an absolute godsend if you travel frequently.
There is a soft lavender scent which dissipates post rinsing, rather pleasant to my nose. In all the excitement, I tossed the box (bad beauty blogger) but Jurlique has a full ingredient list on their website. As the product just recently launched, it doesn’t appear to be listed on the Sephora website yet but it retails for 50AUD in the land down-under (pricy, yes, but it seems to go further than my FANCL).
