Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil Review


Hi lovelies! I was running low on Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil and wanted to try something else. I ended up ordering Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil from Ebay. I bought mine from globalcommerce for $15.68 USD including shipping. I am very happy with the Skin Food cleansing oil!

Skinfood Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil 150mL:

"A lightweight cleansing oil that thoroughly removes even the toughest makeup along with pore-clogging impurities. Contains fresh unripe green apple extract. Unripe green apples have a bitter, astringent flavor that helps control sebum production and tighten enlarged pores.

Ingredients List:
Cetyl ethylhexanoate, mineral oil, peg-20 glyceryl trisosterate, bis-ethoxydiglycol cyclohexane 1,4-dicarboxylate,sorbeth-30 tetraoleate, octyldodecanol, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, parfum

Directions:
1. Dispense a few pumps onto a dry palm and apply to the face in massaging motions.
2. Wet fingertips and massage skin until the oil turns into a milky texture. Double-cleanse with a foaming cleanser.

Let's see how well this oil cleanser performs ~


Trial #1:
I am wearing Etude House Dr. Lash Mascara Fixer and Maybelline Mega Plush Lash Mascara on the eyes with BB Cream and MAC Prolongwear concealer on the skin.

Trial #1 Results:

I used two pumps and massaged the Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil onto my dry skin and eyes. Then I added some water to my hands and massaged some more. Then I rinsed off. The cleansing oil completely removed all my make up and left no oily residue on my skin. I didn't need to follow up with regular cleanser like I usually do with other oil cleansers. I am very pleased!


Trial #2:

I am wearing Etude House Dr. Lash Mascara Fixer Primer and Tony Moly Cat's Wink Volume Mascara on the lashes with BB Cream and MAC Prolongwear concealer on the skin. I also have Holika Holika Jewel-light Glitter Eyeliner on.  This combination of primer and mascara is extremely hard to remove. I usually use Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover to remove my eye make up, but it doesn't completely remove Tony Moly Can'ts Wink Mascara.

Trial #2 Results:

I use two pumps of Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil to massage onto my dry skin and eyes. I add water to my hands and massage some more. Then I rinse clean with warm water. I am very surprised at how well this product removed my make up. Again, it left no oily residues.


Trial #3:

Here I am wearing Etude House Dr. Lash Mascara Fixer Primer, Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara, MAC Black Swan Pearlglide Eyeliner and some other eye make up that was removed with Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover. I usually use eye make up remover to remove my false lashes. You can find out how I remove my false lashes here: How to Safely Remove False Lashes. I also have BB Cream, concealer and powder on the skin. Wow, look at my pores. Ugh!

Trial #3 Results:

Like the other trials, I simply massaged the oil onto my dry skin and eyes. Then I added water to massage some more, and then I rinsed off with water. Again, Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil removed all my make up without leaving any residue. 

Overall:

I really love this product and it works very well! I find it that it works best if you massage the product on dry skin and then massage some more with water before rinsing. I've tried the product while in the shower when my skin was already wet and it does not work as well this way. However, I find that this is a very good alternative to MAC's Cleanse Off Oil which costs more than twice as much as the Skin Food oil cleanser and leaves residue on my skin. I like that I have the option of not following up with a cleanser, so this product is great for people who wear make up and have oily skin. I am surprised by how well this product rinses off, especially since mineral oil is the main ingredient in the product. It doesn't feel drying, so it is great for normal to dry skin as well! 

Would I Repurchase?

I most likely would repurchase, but I want to try the lemon brightening version.

What do you use to remove your make up?

Later Days ~

  1. Wow this looks promising! I am currently using Tony Moly's cleansing cream but I am thinking about switching to an oil cleanser instead. Thanks <3
