Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil // The August Review

Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil - RRP £14.50

The brand describes the product as; "Tough on makeup, gentle on your skin — this makeup removing oil is the perfect oil based makeup remover to add to your skincare routine! Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil is the first step in the Curél double cleansing routine for dry skin. This cleansing facial oil gently removes makeup, dirt and oil from deep within the pores. Our makeup remover cleanser is specifically formulated to be gentle on dry, sensitive skin, for a makeup cleaning oil that is colourant free, fragrance free, and free from drying alcohols. Doubling as a makeup cleanser and deep cleansing oil, this makeup remover washes away impurities without stripping the skin of natural ceramides".


- One pump is all you need.
- Non greasy feeling.
- Smells lovely.
- Doesn't leave that film like feeling after use.
- Didn't cause any breakouts.


- Can be pricey if just purchasing as a first cleanse.

The Verdict

Back last year, after I completed the 2021 August Review, the weather in the UK started to become a lot dryer and I found my skin echoed that. I had heard many good things about Curél and, as it was on a Boots 3 for 2 offer, I decided to give it a try. Advertised as a first cleanse, I've found some cleansers targeted at wiping off makeup, leave a stripped feeling after use. This doesn't do that. It's actually quite hydrating, even when scrubbing your face with a flannel. I've been able to take off a full face of makeup with this one cleanser (but, of course, I go in for a second with another product!) and I never experienced any breakouts with it. This formula is non-greasy and feels like silk, but I can understand it won't appeal to everyone. If this is something that's peaked your interest, I highly recommend it.

As always, thanks for reading...
