With jojoba & calendula

Featured by Pixiwoo - September 2018 

Designed for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, this light & gentle cleansing oil to milk formulation provides an effective cleanse without stripping the skin of its natural oils, respecting the skin’s natural barrier. Contains a comforting blend of plant oils and a gentle emulsifier to break down make up, sunscreen and impurities. It fully rinses off leaving the skin feeling clean but not tight, with no greasy residue.

NEW - refills with aluminium caps are now available to purchase in 100ml size. To refill, remove the aluminium cap from the refill bottle and replace it with the pump dispenser from your empty cleanser bottle (note that pumps from my previous amber packaging will not fit). Important: to prevent contamination, do not wash the pump or get it wet (water introduces the risk of microbial growth in the cleanser), and avoid using it for other products. I recommend disposing of the pump after a maximum of 9-12 months.

Jojoba: ideal for all skin types, offers skin soothing and reparative benefits

Calendula: renowned for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, calendula calms and soothes damaged and dry skin

Plus a gentle plant-derived emulsifier which allows the oils to be fully rinsed off with water.

Shake gently before use. Dispense 2-3 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand and massage over a dry face and neck for at least a minute, to break down make up, sunscreen & impurities. Splash face with warm water to emulsify cleanser, then massage a little more. Rinse off with warm water, and a warm wet washcloth if desired. Repeat or follow with a second gentle cleanser if needed (though not necessary). Can be used over the eye area but avoid getting the oil into your eyes (I recommend using a separate eye make up remover first for this area).

Please note you may notice some cloudiness/sediment in the oil, especially in colder weather which is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the quality/experience of using this product.

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. For external use only. Keep out of the reach of children. Use by expiry date which is 12 months from manufacturing (see base of bottle)
