I’m all for discovering a beauty product that I have never heard of or read about before, so when I received the deep cleansing oil by DHC I was both intrigued and delighted. DHC is a leading, Japanese skincare company which specialises in creating carefully formulated products using the finest natural ingredients. The deep cleansing oil is enriched with the goodness of olive oil and blended with the all important nutrients of vitamin E, which work to help unclog pores and clear the skin of impurities and makeup.
Now first things first, the only oil-based beauty products that I ever indulge in either hydrate my hair or promote tanning, so using an oil to cleanse my face was a skincare regime that I was yet to try. The product claims to dissolve makeup, but since my foundation is a thicker coverage I decided to stick to my normal makeup removal routine and apply the oil afterwards to remove any excess. Ensuring that my hands and face are dry, I dispense the product into the palm of my hand and using my free hand, carefully apply it to my face. The pump dispenser makes the distribution easier to gauge, which due to the runny solution is both a necessary and useful tool. I find that one pump is just enough to evenly cover my face without the oil dripping everywhere.
Massaging the oil into the skin is actually quite a relaxing experience, especially with the fragrant undertones of mint which works nicely as a pre-bedtime treatment. It eliminates dryness and leaves the skin feeling noticeably smoother and softer. Although I wouldn’t use this product as a replacement for my cream-based cleansers, it’s a wonderful addition. So who would have thought it? – I think I’ve acquired a new found admiration for oil-based skincare products! All hail DHC.
