By Nature Brightening Cleansing Oil is officially my first cleansing oil with sprayer applicator. It is strange to see such combo because I'd rather not spray it straight onto my skin because I am afraid I will spritz it into my eye. Sprayer is quite powerful and a lot of product comes out with one push. To be on a safer side I'd recommend spraying it onto a cotton pad and then swiping off your make-up.

My experience:

By Nature Brightening Cleansing Oil is a lovely oil cleanser with beautiful orange/mandarin smell to it. It just throws me in the Christmas mood when you peel that juicy mandarin and savor the slightly bitter yet delicious aroma. I love my cleansers fragranced because cleansing has became sort of a ritual to me. My top favorite fragranced cleanser must be the Moringa balm by EH but this one deserves the 2nd place in my collection.

 

Oil itself is bright orange in color and has quite thick consistency to it. I assume the color comes from the beta-carotene in the mix. Very lovely ingredient to see in a cleanser IMHO. Besides that it is rich in vitamin C and E and cleansing my face with it is a pure joy. The packaging is whooping 200ml for the price under 10$. Yay, yay and more yay! One issue with it though... The sprayer top. Why?!?!?! It is innovative but maan, what a mess it makes. I am personally avoiding it at all costs because I am terrified of things spraying into my eyes. and my make-up these days os on my eyes. I stopped wearing foundation some time ago and my most used items from my beauty-case are mascara and bow powder.

 

It would be perfect if it only came with a normal non-squirty pump. Nonetheless, I managed to tame this beauty and found out that spraying it onto the cotton pad does a lovely job as well. I ran a one-sweep test and you can see by yourself how well it removes stubborn make-up after one go. Mascara, lip liner, lipstick, waterproof concealer - all nearly entirely gone off my skin. What is there not to love!? Oh one more thing. Because the oil is entirely organic, according to the manufacturer, you don't have to rinse it off (I'd still do it though).

 

To sum up: The cleansing oil is very efficient at removing stubborn make-up. It smells great, has an affordable price point and it comes with a large container. If you love brand that are cruelty free and organic, I'd suggest looking into the products from this brand. By Nature Brightening Cleansing Oil is my 2nd item that I could get ahold of and so far so good. Oh, forgot to mention, it doesn't irritate my eyes and I totally approve it for people with sensitive skin type, especially aging or dry sensitized skin. And as usual, all sensitive people out there, don't get it if you are not so keen on citrus (strongly) fragranced skin care.
