Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Oil

Describe the brand in three words.

Hair. USA. Affordable.

What type of cleanser is it?

Oil – on the heavier side

Who is it for?

Advertised as being for everyone, but I would beware if you’re particularly acnaic.

What’s in it?

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Sodium Isostearoyl Lactylate, Fragrance (Essential Oil Blend), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter**, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Rosa Centifolia Flower Wax, Rosa Damascena Flower Wax, Rosa Canina Flower Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Balanites Aegyptiaca Kernel Oil, Rhododendron Ferrugineum Leaf Cell Culture Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract

What’s not in it?

Possibly acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?

fragrance, shea butter

Suitable for pregnancy?

Yes

Natural? Organic? Man made? Vegan?

A mixture of organic and natural

Tested on animals in home country/EU/sold in territories that advocate testing?

No/No/No

How does it smell?

Not strong at all, faintly ‘herbal’, and certainly unfragranced, which is odd, given that it says it contains essential oil fragrance

How do you use it?

Apply to dry skin, massage in, remove with flannel. You can totally emulsify if you prefer, and splash off, but eew. 

First cleanse/second cleanse or AM cleanse?

Second cleanse, AM cleanse OR a simple cleanse in the evening if you’re not wearing a ton of makeup. 

Best for winter or summer?

Either.

Does it remove waterproof eye makeup?

Yes.

How long did I test it for?

I’ve had it for a few weeks, used sporadically.

How much is it? /Size/Approximate cost per usage?

$9.99 for 118ml. One pump dispenses a lot of product, so I tend to use half a pump. It will last a good while.

Works well with?

Anything. 

What’s the website like?

Good. It lists the ingredients and it’s easy to navigate.

How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?

It’s in Target and Ulta, so good.

What’s good about it?

This is a good, affordable cleansing oil. It removes makeup, although I actually like it as a second cleanse or to remove lighter makeup. What it’s really good for is massage. A small amount, giving grip, not slip, is great for this routine, which is rather mortifyingly, my very first blog post. However, it still stands as a good massage routine and can stay up until I update it. 

The oil is quite heavy, it’s not runny, so apply half a pump, spread across the ends of your fingers, get on to your face, and have at it.

What’s not so good about it?

Not much. It works. It’s not extortionate. Try it.

Would I purchase/repurchase?

Yes. It’s good.

Do you need it?

If you need an affordable cleansing oil, absolutely.
