A Cleanser as Lovely as a Rose by Kensington Apothecary

My skin care regimen consists always of double cleansing. This, to me, ensures I am removing all my makeup.  This might sound a bit tedious for some but I find not all products are removed easily with just a wet cleanser.  With makeup touting itself as long-wearing and waterproof, removing it should be easy and leave the skin unscathed yet pampered.  I found this to be true with Kensington Apothecary's Rose Oil Cleanser.

Kensington Apothecary is a skin care brand of cruelty-free products containing mostly organic and non-GMO ingredients.  Unlike some brands who pride itself in the organic and natural like a hippie image, this line has the pampered luxury and realism at affordable prices.

I recently had the lucky chance of sampling the Rose Oil Cleanser ($24).  Usually oil cleansers diluted versions of oils mixed with some emulsifying agent and water.  This one is a pure mix of oils and with the added luxury of rose oil.

The Oil

What differentiates this mix of oil to others is the lovely and beautiful scent of rose.  Nothing relaxes the mind with pampering than the simple smell of a rose.  With a simple squirt from the glass bottle (which can be re-purposed for liquid soap and such), the oil will remove the most stubborn makeup.

My biggest test is my favorite makeup sealant, Blue Marble Selr, this product has to be removed with a good oil based cleanser or it will still leave a residue behind.

The Test

Here, you can see a messy swatch of many long-wearing makeup from an hard-to-remove eyeshadow pencil to long-wearing foundation and cream color.  This, you can't see, has been topped off with my the makeup sealant, Blue Marble. 

The Efficacy

The Rose Oil Cleanser has been applied and if you see the little clumps or pilling of products, that is the makeup sealant film-former breaking up. With a wipe from a kleenex you can see the makeup and sealant is pretty much removed.  The last step of a facial cleanser removes the last traces of makeup.

Kensington Apothecary Rose Oil Cleanser has impressed me greatly.  Anything that can remove my favorite makeup sealant and makeup that easily deserves my praise because I know even some regular (cooking oils) will not remove makeup that easily.  Better yet, this one doesn't feel as greasy or heavy as others and with a wash of a facial cleanser, the oils not only are washed clean, they leave the skin moist.  Oh yes, let's not forget the smell of rose!

For pampered luxury with the strength to remove the most stubborn makeup, this cleanser deserves all my love!
