Here's the thing though - I don't actually WANT to clean my face in the shower, and it seems ridiculous to clean your face before stepping into the shower. Ideally I just want something that can emulsify my makeup so I can do the second cleansing step after I get out of the shower.
My usual problem is that cleansing oils often emulsify a little too well, which leaves my skin feeling parched by the time I step out of the shower. This cleansing oil has a little bit more "grip" making it well suited to people with dehydration and dry skin, or people like me who would rather defend their skin from the shower rather than expose it to shampoo.
This smells lovely and cleans off makeup really well, and leaves my skin feeling comfy and defended.
I think people who prefer a cleansing oil that rinses away cleanly will have problems with this being a little too rich, but if you want to defend your skin a little better you'll love this.
