"This makeup removing cleansing oil is a beautiful blend of Organic Camellia oil to keep skin bright, toned, and balanced, and Organic Evening Primrose oil, rich in anti-aging EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) to lock in moisture and boost skin elasticity. Light, dry certified Organic Sunflower oil has been further enriched with nourishing organic botanicals, including silica-rich Horse Tail to improve circulation, anti-inflammatory Borage Flower, and antioxidant rich Helichrysum Flower to nourish and enhance the skin as it cleans."

I've been using Vapour Organic Beauty's Cleansing Oil mainly to remove eye makeup. I squeeze two pumps on a fluffy cotton ball and gently press it to my shut eye. Then it gently wiggle it and swipe away all my eye makeup! This works great at removing waterproof mascara and eye liners. It is an oil and does leave my skin oily feeling, so I wouldn't use this all over my face.

Like all the other VOB products I've been trying, I love the packaging. It's a plastic pump that is not only great for travel, it's sanitary!!  It's also chalked full of great organic ingredients that are so good for your skin and has anti-aging properties! Yeah!

The scent--it's very light, I can't really describe it. VOB describes it as aromatherapy, but I don't really notice the scent unless I put my nose very close to it. My eyes tend to be sensitive and this doesn't bother them.

I the only con I'd have with this is the price. It's $26 for a little less than 1 ounce. MAC's cleansing off oil is $29 for 5 ounces. So I guess it comes down to how good you feel about using organic products or not. I've never used the one by MAC, so this is not a comparison. Oh, one more thing, for reasons unknown to me, VOB isn't a supplier on OpenSky anymore, so it's not available in my NV Beauty Boutique anymore.

Have you tried anything for VOB?

Actually I haven't tried using VOB but I guess I have to try this after reading your post. I also preferred cleansing oil which have a very mild scent that only organic cosmetics usually had.

Hi Nicole,

I am a new follower of your lovely blog. Wow, $26 for less than 1 ounce is expensive! I thought Shu Uemera was expensive. If you like all natural/organic, have you try making your own? I use grapeseed oil and added a little bit of olive oil for hydration, you can play around with the ratio depending on your skintype.

If you get a chance, I would love for you to stop by and check out my blog as well. Happy Holidays!

Thanks for the review. Never really heard of the product before. I'll give it a try when I have the money to spare. =)
