“Whish is dedicated to the discovery of natural ingredients which enable intelligent choices for your skin. Welcome to a gentle new world.” That’s all I really needed to know before I decided I had to try some of Whish’s products! The product I decided to try was the Revitalizing Cleansing Oil, which is odd because I have more oily spots on my face than dry spots. Oh well, it’s worth a shot!
This cleansing oil retails for $34, which is honestly a steal. Have you seen this bottle?! It’s 3.4 ounces and I could literally knock someone out with it. It is literally almost as big as my forearm! And the packaging? Oh, am I a sucker for great packaging. It’s beautiful. This is more than a cleanser, however. It is said to remove makeup, cleanse, moisturize, and soothe skin. Let’s touch on each of these claims.
To remove makeup, you are instructed to massage this product onto dry skin, rubbing gently. To test this, I applied a full face of my most long-lasting makeup. Then I followed the directions and started massaging. I was amazed when even my waterproof mascara came off with little effort, without burning my eyes. Even my Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks slid right off! I was seriously jumping for joy.
When I felt like most of my makeup was removed, I started rinsing with warm water. This is where I ran into an issue. No matter how much water I splashed on my face, it still felt oily. I tried using a wash cloth to help scrub some of the oil away with no luck. I ended up needing to use another face cleanser just to prevent my skin from feeling like an oil slick. After I was dried off, I went to use my daily moisturizer and realized I didn’t need it. The very small amount of oil left on my face was enough to keep my skin from feeling dry without it. My skin felt smooth and fresh for the rest of the day.
I do want to touch on the consistency of this product really quick. It does come out like a gel but then melts into an oil once you rub your hands together. I did feel like I had to use quite a bit to remove a full face of makeup but, again, this bottle is huge so I’m not concerned. It will still last a while.
My final verdict? I do enjoy this as a makeup remover, but I would recommend using another cleanser afterward if you have oily skin like I do. I do plan on repurchasing this because it did such an amazing job at removing my liquid lipsticks, which I wear almost daily.
