DHC Deep Cleaning Oil and Eyelash Tonic Review

April 29, 2014

I’ve reviewed a few products in the past as you know, and so far I’ve never really gushed about much, but as with anything in life, there’s always a first time for everything. You see, I don’t really feel like I have to be extra positive about anything just because it was sent to me for a review, although until now I haven’t had any bad experience and I’m happy for that.

The reason for all this is the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – it’s a case of ‘Where have you been all my life”? I tried this product and have been using it ever since as I am super happy with it. Basically you pump a bit of oil onto your hand, rub it on your dry face and it will dissolve away all the makeup and grime, as simple as that (and make you look like a panda). I swear I have never seen anything remove all the mascara so well and quickly – forget about all the other makeup removers in the market, this is it. It reminded me of these TV infomercials from the 90’s that advertised this miracle gel that cleaned everything, that’s how good it is.

I’ve read some reviews online by other people saying that it caused their skin to break out but I had no such problem. As with any other skincare product, the reaction might depend on each individual’s skin. I would say that if you aren’t prone to acne or blemishes, that you should try it and see for yourself.

The DHC Eyelash Tonic, although is heralded as an award winning product, I didn’t feel as enthusiastic about it as with the oil. This is especially indicated for people with weak eyelashes and that’s not really my case, I fortunately have a pretty full natural set of them.  I tried it a few times but as I tend to stay in bed as much as possible every morning (I’m NOT a morning person), some days my makeup routine gets cut into the bare basics, which means that adding an extra product on the eyelashes becomes superfluous. All I can say is that it didn’t hurt, as my eyelashes didn’t fall off.

Both of these products have olive oil as the main ingredient and originate in Japan. Have you tried any of them or any oil based products before?

PS: products have been sent for consideration, opinions expressed are my own.

    Never used an oil like this before, I wouldn’t even think to as my skin can be oily sometimes. Looks interesting though. Super review doll xx

      I never thought either, I tend to be on the oily side too, but I was really happy with the result!
