“Melt your makeup into oblivion…and soothe and hydrate your skin...”
“Worth obsessing over…this will help protect, soothe and treat your skin...”
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.
My package was shipped quickly and packaged with care! I love knowing I’m putting safe, clean products on my face. My skin is soft and my hormonal acne heals faster than normal!
I absolutely love this oil cleanser. It is gentle, and takes off the makeup and grime really well. It leaves my skin soft and moist after the wash. I use it every night and absolutely am a fan.
I had never used a oil cleanser before so I was a little skeptical at first, but after just a few uses this has cleared up some stubborn acne and helped to even out my skin tone. It even removes waterproof makeup (which I previously had to scrub to get off). I also love the natural scent from the essential oils. Overall very satisfied.
I love how moisturized my skin feels after washing it. Normally my skin feels dried out when I cleanse my face. The smell is great and it seems to do a nice job getting all my makeup off including my eye makeup.
