Absorbs into the skin and leaves it glowy and moisturized
Skin feels so silky
This is a beautifully formulated oil cleanser. The scent is light and inoffensive. It emulsifies very well and leaves my skin super soft. I like it a lot. The formula isn’t as traditional as other oil cleansers and that’s what drew me to this cleanser. The only thing that doesn’t make this absolutely great for me is the formula is so soft and silky that it doesn’t grip those pesky oil plugs and remove them like other oil cleansers do.
This cleanser feels nice, however it does not remove face or eye makeup very well. For this reason I only rated 3 stars.
I tried this cleanser after receiving a 7-day sample dropper in a gift bag, then ended up buying an entire bottle. The product itself is great for taking off makeup and smells lovely. My one big issue with it is the fact that there are no clear instructions for how to remove an oil cleanser. For skincare aficionados who are well-versed in the different formulations, it should not be a problem. I didn't know how thoroughly this product had to be taken off (splashing water alone will not be enough). I had terrible acne breakouts within a month of buying the full size product. I tried everything -- more exercise, more water, less caffeine, more sleep, more vegetables, less sugar -- you name it. My breakouts were due to improper washing of the product I realized only after a consultation with a dermatologist followed by a tutorial in Sephora for how to take off oil cleansers. My biggest finding was that oil cleansers usually require a double cleansing. Kind of pointless? The smooth silky feeling you get after Sahajan is taken right off with the 2nd cleansing. I now use Sahajan to take off my makeup, and a Kiehl's cleanser afterwards. I bought the full size product in an attempt to have a one-stop shop for makeup removal and cleansing, but I am back to double cleansing which, at the price point of this product, is largely wasteful. Sad to say I will likely not re purchase as it is a glorified makeup remover.
Thank you so much for this thoughtful feedback Alisha. This is not an experience we have ever heard about our cleansing oil but we appreciate that a double cleanse might be best for your skin. Thanks so much for letting us be step 1 and for sharing your experience. We wish you nothing but glowing skin.
