Simple hydrating cleansing oil

Has anyone used this? Do you think it would be ok on acne-prone skin? I think I'd use it as a first cleanse.

I was watching AMR (Ruth) this week and she said it's currently £2 at Sainsbury's so I think I might risk it. I think it's normally £6/7. Am on a tight budget!!

I tried this and found it quite drying which was a bit disappointing because it has the word hydrating in the name!

I also felt like I had to use a fair bit to feel like it was doing anything, if you see what I mean! (NB I don't wear make up.)

My skin tends towards dryness though so if your skin is a little oilier you may find it works for you.

If I remember correctly it has a lot of grapeseed oil in it which tends to be recommended for oily/acne prone skin.

I liked it and used a whole bottle but I love the smell of the una Brennan oil so went back to that. No idea what my skin type really is now due to three years of pregnancy and breastfeeding

Thanks Snoopy I didn't realise that about grapeseed oil.

I use it to take off my makeup. Which it does fairly effectively. But I wash my face after it, because I'm a greaseball. No breakouts or anything, so I seem to be fine with it. I definitely wouldn't use it without washing it off tho.

Thanks Ididnthear yes I'm a greaseball too! I think I'm going to risk it for £2 and just use it as a makeup remover and wash my face after.
