100% Pure Organic Flax Seed Cleansing Oil Review


100% Pure is known for their great natural products, and having a lot of organic and natural ingredients quite clearly ups the price tag a bit. I paid a good amount of money for this oil of only 118 milliliters, and unfortunately, it did not live up to its price.

The ingredient list says a lot promising things, such as oregano and thyme oil - which I've heard is good for anti-ageing - in the flax seed base.
Directions says to saturate a cotton pad and remove makeup with, continuing with new cotton pads until face is entirely clean and can be left like that, though I prefer double cleansing in the evening so I always follow up with my Body Shop Seaweed Cleansing Gel.
Okay, first of all - you need at least three cotton pads to remove makeup even if you're not wearing much at all and the pump dispenses so little that you need about ten pumps to kind of saturate the cotton pad. For a full face of makeup, five or six is needed. I used this almost every night and at the end the pump didn't reach all the way down so I had to screw it open and pour it out - making a huge slippery mess. The bottle lasted me a little bit over a month, so I am not ready to pay that amount of money again to only have a product last me that long. It doesn't really do a lot for your skin if you're looking for any benefits, so from here on I'll just use any vegetable oil I have at home.

The packaging though feels very luxurious, a heavy, sturdy white glass (or porcelain?) bottle with a clear cap makes is easy to recycle or use again if you maybe have a moisturizer that needs to be transferred to another container. I'll just recycle mine and never buy it again.

Got mine from here.

E.E.
