Tatcha Pure One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Review

9 Aug

Tatcha Pure One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is a gentle, two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser. This beautiful blend of botanical oils is formulated to thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture, an essential first step for any skincare ritual. The product is formulated without mineral oil to remove even water-resistant sunscreen, long-wear makeup formulas, and BB creams, it emulsifies completely and leaves no oily residue. It is rich in oleic and linoleic acids, along with vitamins A, B, and E to nourish dry skin, calm sensitive skin and decongest oily skin. Tatcha Pure is free of  parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

0.8 OZ Tatcha Camellia Oil

I received a free small sample of Tatcha Camellia Oil as part of my Sephora sample choices with a recent purchase from their site. I have to admit I’ve always been a bit skeptical of washing my face with oil cleansers, so I was really eager to put this product to the test.

How to use:
With dry hands and a dry face gently massage the oil onto your face. One to two pumps is all you will need. Rinse with water, I prefer warm water, and the oil turns milky/silky and washes off all your grime or makeup residue. It melts away the day.

The Gamut of Experiments and Tests:

How well can it remove Makeup?
The first test was to see how well it would fair at dissolving and removing a normal day of make-up. Other brands have not stacked up as well and would leave me grabbing a makeup remover cloth or having to wash my face again, which is obviously quite annoying. This was not the case at all with the Tatcha oil. I am pleased to say that the Camellia oil passed this test with flying colors. I didn’t have to worry about spending extra time to clean my face, it knocks the competition out of the park and does an amazing job without leaving any residue.

Will Dry Skin be an issue?
The second test was for dry skin. Normally at night I have to use a moisturizer/night cream on my face to help combat skin dryness. That night I decided to skip the cream. The next morning after my daily cleansing and toning routine, when I looked in the mirror I was amazed at how great my skin looked. I couldn’t believe it, my skin wasn’t flaky or dry like it normally is, even without the use of a night cream the previous evening. Another bonus point for tatcha camellia oil. Being able to save money and time by skipping that nightly ritual of moisturizing cream was a wonderful and unexpected surprise.

Will I have any skin reactions?
The third test was how would my skin react to the product. I have very sensitive skin as well as acne. I am pleased to say that neither were an issue while using this cleansing oil. I didn’t have any acne flare ups, rashes, or allergic reactions which are always a worry for me when trying new products.

How will it smell?
The fourth test was regarding the scent. Most products I find have sickly scents that I can’t stand, but luckily this was not the case with the Tatcha Pure One Step Oil. Their isn’t an overwhelming scent, it’s light, clean and pretty much non-existent which is really a plus here.

Lasting Impressions:
I have had nothing but a positive experience with this cleansing oil. I am thrilled with the product, and the meaningful gifts associated with our purchases. Each purchase helps empower girls by sending them to school through their “Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures partnership.” When washed off  the oil emulsifies into a milk and melts off any makeup and daily grime residue you may have. Even waterproof makeup! I was astonished as I’ve tried other cleansing oils in the past, and they failed on so many levels. Using an oil instead of a foam or a gel soap seems a bit foreign to me and took getting used to, however that is not a bad thing. Any hesistanchesitancies I may have had due to past bad experiences have been eradicated and my faith in cleansing oil has been restored. This product is non-sensitizing, non-irritating, dermatologist-tested, and cruelty-free.

Overall Thoughts:
-Effective: No need for other makeup removers to step in to do the job.
-Time and Money Saver: No need for me to spend extra of either for moisturizer.
-Noticeably Soft and balanced skin even after one use.
-Giving Back: Purchase of the product empowers girls
