Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil Review

Bobbi Brown's Cleansing Oil is a light, gentle, gorgeously fragranced cleansing oil made with olive oil, jojoba oil and ginger root extract. It claims to dissolve all makeup, dirt and oil, leaving the skin refreshed and moisturized, no matter the skin type.

I bought two bottles of this at the Estee Lauder Warehouse Sale I attended back in June where they were selling it 2 for 1 at the price of $25 (regularly, a bottle is $39 USD) and I've been using it almost every day since. 

The way you use it is to pump it into your hands and apply it to your dry skin, massaging it gently all over to break down the makeup, oil and dirt on your face. You can work it a little more over areas like your eyes and lips where mascara and lipstick tend to hang on for dear life. Then you add a little bit of water to emulsify it and massage a little longer. Finally, splash warm water to your face to rinse. Your skin should feel clean, smooth and soft. 

I was surprised that using an oil didn't leave my combination skin feeling oily at all. In fact, it's soothing and moisturizing. It does a great job of completely removing my makeup at the end of the day and it smells just lovely. 

The Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil is 6.7 fl. oz/200 mL and I'm about a third of the way through my first bottle. I use 1-2 pumps depending on how much cleansing my face needs, so it's lasted about three months which is pretty good value. 

The only complaint I have with the Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil is with the bottle itself. With a pump you'd think that the oil wouldn't get all over the bottle but it does. There must be an issue with the mechanism because there is a oily residue all over the bottle and it can stain any natural surface such as wood. 

Has anyone else tried the Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil?
