I've been going through an oil cleanser phase lately, most likely due to the hot weather. I just want to banish any extra face oil from my life--forever and always. Oil dissolves oil and this product: Nude Perfect Cleanse Clarifying Cleansing Oil (3.4oz/$36) looked perfectly lovely. It's described as follows:
"This all-natural clarifying cleanser transforms from a lightweight oil to a delicate milk, thoroughly washing away face and eye makeup and pore-clogging debris. The unique formula rinses completely clean, leaving nothing behind but fresh, smooth skin. Ideal for combination and oily skin." Bring it! Here it is in all its gorgeous packaging:
Passion fruit-Vitamin C and Omega 6 to remove impurities
Kalahari Melon-Omegas 6 and 9 to soften skin
Cranberry antioxidant-Omegas 3, 6 and 9 to defend against free radicals
Not only would I put this directly on my face, I would pump it directly in my mouth--all of that sounds incredibly healthy. (Who knew there were so many Omegas out there with their own numbers? Where have I been?) This is a foregone conclusion but just in case it wasn't obvious: this cleanser is free of all parabens, Pegs, synthetic color, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, silicones, DEA and lots of other nasty business.
So, was I ready to lay myself bare for Nude? Did it break down all my walls as well as all my face oil?
Verdict: Gorgeous! Love! What a cleanser! It looks like liquid gold and has a very light, natural herbal scent to it. It's on the thinner side for consistency and feels warm upon application to the face. I didn't notice much in the way of it milking up when I wet my face with water though. It did remove every bit of makeup including my stubborn eye makeup very gently. My face was left soft and clean without feeling tight or dried out. It felt like I was at the spa or doing something very nice for myself. The bottle is not very big, however, a pump or two is all you need for your whole face. Nude rocked my world!
