Neutrogena's New Ultra Light Cleansing Oil Will Put Your Favorite Makeup Remover To Shame

Back in the day, I didn’t think my skin was really “clean” unless it had the dry, stretched sensation that you get after wiping down your face with makeup wipes or some other pad or scrub that contains salicylic acid. It only took ten years for me to learn that your skin feeling that dry is actually not good.

Now that I am in my thirties–and I know the importance of super-hydrated skin in warding off wrinkles and fine lines–I’m obsessive about making sure my skin is moisturized, which is why I recently switched to an oil cleanser. Neutrogena’s Ultra Light Oil Cleanser to be exact. And I can’t sing its praises loudly or often enough; I am in love with it.

First off, it does what most other makeup removers don’t–leaves my skin extra moisturized after cleaning off all the nastiness. Even after a quick rinse with water, my face is super soft and I never have that dry feeling anymore. What I really love, however, is how easy it removes eye makeup. Whereas I used to have to rub three or four times to remove mascara with my old makeup wipes, this cleanser gets it all off with one gentle swipe.

If you’re at all hesitant about a cleansing oil because you have naturally oily or acne-prone skin, don’t be. We talked to a bunch of dermatologists who highly recommend it for all skin types. And Neutrogena’s is a great option because it’s non-comedogenic (i.e. won’t clog pores), dermatologist tested and the price can’t be beat. With temps getting cooler and the air getting drier, trust me–this is exactly what your beauty routine needs.
