InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil

I've had a love-hate relationship with many different makeup removers.  Over the last few years, I've tried several brands of makeup removers, eye makeup removers, and the majority of those didn't remove the makeup as advertised.  Some worked okay while others wouldn't even remove eye liner.  After spending money on makeup remover that didn't work for me, I decided to make my own makeup remover a few months ago. 

I was contacted by InstaNatural to test and give my opinion on their Deep Cleansing Facial Oil.  Since I had such a hard time finding a remover that worked for me, I was excited to hear from a new brand that I hadn't tried.  What are my thoughts on this facial/makeup remover oil?  Keep reading to find if it's working for me!

Yes, I am very happy with how well this oil works for makeup removal!  I like to use a cotton pad, and swipe it over my eyes. Within two to three swipes, the mascara and eye makeup completely disappears!  Some of the best eye makeup removers I've used in the past didn't work as fast and good as this one.  Usually, there's always some leftover mascara hanging around and I have to reapply some remover before doing my makeup the next day.  Not with this one... it completely removes it the first time around.

I know there's a lot of people who claim that using cleansing oil all over the face helps the skin restore itself and cuts down on the production of oil.  Some people swear by it, while others say it doesn't work.  If you are interested in reading more about oil cleansing for oily skin, check out this article from Paula's Choice and also this article that supports the oil cleansing method.

I have combination skin, but my main area with oil is around my forehead.  Some days are worse than others, I steer clear of the areas I have problem with oil.  Usually, I apply the oil to my eye area only, but sometimes I apply it to my nose and cheek area because I have problems with flaking skin in those areas.  It seems this oil helps hydrate those areas and my skin doesn't look as flaky under my foundation.
