My Review on Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil + More Skin Care Products I Stopped Using!
I haven’t introduced this cleansing oil yet, but I finished using it yesterday. It’s called Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil. I started using it after finishing Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil. Here’s more about Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil!
This cleansing oil is supposed to remove dirt, blackheads, and sebum. It’s a moisturizing formula that contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate and moisturize the skin. It leaves the skin feeling refreshed and supple after every cleanse. It also contains camellia oil, rosehip oil, canola oil, and aloe vera extract. Other ingredients in this cleansing oil includes tea tree, acerola, blueberry, grape, and sweet cherry.
So I’m not really big on cleansing oils. I feel like I’ve said this so many times, lol. Honestly, I really can’t see the difference in my skin using a cleansing oil and not using one. I’ve been using oil (just pure oil) to cleanse my face as a makeup remover for so many years. I find that using oils, such organic coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil works the same without the high price tag. I still have a large container of organic coconut oil that I use to cook with and for beauty purposes. A huge tub of organic coconut oil just lasts forever compared to a bottle of pre-mixed oil. So that’s why I’m not too wild about pre-mixed cleansing oils. Since I still have them, I’m just going to use them for now.
Here are my thoughts on Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil…
This cleansing oil feels like any other cleansing oil. It feels a little thick and oily (duh, lol). It moves over the facial skin just fine. It feels soft and smooth on the skin. I didn’t have any issues with it tugging at my skin. I didn’t use this cleansing oil alone. I used it as a makeup remover only. So I used this cleansing oil first then followed up with my everyday face wash. It helped to breakdown my makeup before washing my face. I think it did a better job at removing my eye makeup including my stubborn waterproof eye makeup compared to other cleansing oils I have used. This cleansing oil gets a thumbs up for that! Even though the product says that it’ll help remove dirt, blackheads, and sebum, I wouldn’t trust that. Once I rinsed the oil off of my face, my skin didn’t feel clean. Just oily. A good facial cleanser is recommended after using the cleansing oil. That’s what I did as mentioned. I didn’t get any breakouts because of that. It didn’t help with blackheads like it claims to do. I experienced some blackheads when I was using it (not from the cleansing oil). I’m just saying that the cleansing oil didn’t do anything for blackheads. It’s not going to remove them. My overall experience with this cleansing oil wasn’t too bad. I mean, it helped remove my makeup very well due to the thickness of the oil. I remember using iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil, and this product was terrible at removing my eye makeup. So it all comes down to, am I going to purchase Coxir Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil again? Probably not. I don’t need it that’s all.
Now on to other thoughts…
Here are some more products I stopped using! Yeah, I’ve been eliminating products from left to right. Have a much more minimal routine since I don’t have time to apply this many skin care products daily anymore. It just became way too much for my lifestyle. If you missed out on my previous posts on products I gave up on, here they are!
Skin Care Products I Stopped Using
Continued: Skin Care Products I Stopped Using
I stopped using 2 moisturizing products from my moisturizing skin care products list. They are Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion and Cos De BAHA MA Peptide Facial Toner…
Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion:
I really liked this hyaluronic acid toner (gel moisturizing product). It does give my oily skin the moisture that it needs, but I think it’s way too much moisture for me. More than I actually thought. I started noticing a greasy and more oily complexion while using it. I mean, I love the combination of hyaluronic acids in this product but perhaps this product is too heavy for the warm, hot, humid weather where I’m at. My skin just feels way too damp. I noticed a few breakouts out of nowhere while using it. I feel like my skin retaliated against the excess moisture, so I decided to stop using it for now. Maybe I’ll bring it back in the winter if my skin gets dry. I actually feels nice to not use it. I’m trying to accelerate my routine. haha. It’s a good product, but it’s not so much for me right now.
Cos De BAHA MA Peptide Facial Toner:
I decided to remove Cos De BAHA MA Peptide Toner from my moisturizing routine. I like the ingredients in this product and the fact that it does hydrate my skin. It makes my skin appear moisturized and smooth. It’s just that I don’t really need it. I started to feel like it’s an extra step in my moisturizing my skin. It’s just another product that isn’t necessary. So I don’t think I’m purchasing it again when I’m done with it. It’s time to say goodbye to this facial toner. 👋🏻
There goes 2 more products being dropped from my moisturizing routine. I like what I’m doing right now, but I may stop using more products if I don’t see any results from them. Stay tuned for more updates!
Trying Out Samples: Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream, Purito Sleeping Pack, B.LAB PHA Cleansing Oil, Isntree Mugwort Clay Mask, Purito BHA Moisture Gel
I have samples to try! A ton of them. 🙃 I’m going to start off with 5 samples that I have. Here’s a list of product samples I am going to test out! They are…
- Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream
- Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack
- B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil
- Isntree Real Mugwort Clay Mask
- Purito BHA Dead Skin Moisture Gel
Now on to the reviews… 🙂
Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream:
This eye cream smells like herbs, which made me curious to see what’s in this eye cream. So I looked up the ingredients of the eye cream. Lo and behold, the first ingredient is Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract. No wonder why it smelled so herby. Other ingredients that stood out to me include petrolatum, dimethicone, shea butter, licorice, sodium hyaluronate, and lactobacillus/ginseng root ferment filtrate. The texture of the eye cream is soft, silky, and creamy. It glides over the under eyes nicely and smoothly. It also blends into the skin very well with little effort. It reminds me of Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. The texture is very similar. And I really liked using Pyunkang Eye Cream due to the similarities they have. I think I’m falling in love with this eye cream…kinda…the herbal scent throws me off every time I use it…so…
Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack:
I’ve used Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack before <<< Go here to read my previous review on it! My thoughts on this sleeping pack hasn’t changed. I didn’t use it on my facial skin. I know what’s going to happen. And that is breakouts! I don’t want that, lol. I ended up using the sleeping pack on my body instead. It’s rich and creamy like it was before. It’s also moisturizing and helps to seal in moisture. Great for the moisture barrier. Too bad it’s incompatible with my skin type. I’ve moved on to other sleeping packs and moisturizers that work better for me. I’ve also finished my tubes of Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack and haven’t purchased a new one since. Honestly, I’ve moved on to better skin care products that work for my skin. This isn’t a bad product if it works for you. Everyone’s skin is different.
B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil:
This is a very lightweight, elegant oil. It feels so soft and lovely. The oil moves over my facial skin smoothly and feels moisturizing on the skin. It’s very different compared to the cleansing oils I have used. I’m glad I had a chance to try this cleansing oil out. I really liked the way it felt on my skin! Now let’s look at the ingredients! It contains isopropyl myristate, which is comedogenic. BUT! The cleansing oil isn’t left on the skin for too long. Just enough to remove sebum, oil, dirt, makeup. Speaking of makeup, it removed my waterproof eye makeup perfectly! No tugging involved! My makeup came off. 😀 This cleansing oil also contains jojoba seed oil, grape seed oil, honey extract, and tea tree oil, to name a few. No wonder why I liked it. It contains tea tree!! Even though it’s the last ingredient on the list, lol. My experience with B.LAB PHA Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil was wonderful. I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m tempted to purchase the full-sized bottle now.
Isntree Real Mugwort Clay Mask:
This mask is green in color and has tiny little specs of exfoliating mugwort leaf powder in it. It didn’t feel rough or abrasive on the skin. I didn’t use it to exfoliate my face. I applied the mask as is. Just spread the product all over my facial skin and let it sit. It sticks to the skin pretty much instantly. I couldn’t move the mask around anyways, lol. The mask feels lightweight and has an herb smell to it. I didn’t care for the smell of the mask. It’s whatever. I was more curious about what it could do for my skin. This mask contains kaolin and bentonite, which is very good for oily skin. It absorbs excess oil. The instructions says to leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes. I left it on for 10 minutes. After I rinsed the mask off, my skin didn’t feel super dry like I thought it would. I use other clay masks that dry out my skin a bit too much. This one didn’t. It absorbed the oilies on my facial skin and left my skin feeling clean. Not dry and taut. So the sample size was one application. I thought it was an enjoyable experience. Not sure if I would purchase it because I don’t really need a clay mask right now. I have plenty of other products I have to finish up first. This one was OK from this experience. 🙂
Purito BHA Dead Skin Moisture Gel:
Yay! A BHA product to try! This product is a gel. It absorbed into my skin so quick! It literally vanished into my skin when I applied it to my skin. In an instant it disappeared into my skin. WOW. I’m impressed with the absorption! So this product contains, looking at the ingredients, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, betaine salicylate, sodium hyaluronate, and tea tree oil (loooveeee! my fave!!). That’s not the full ingredients list, but that’s what stood out to me the most. It has TEA TREE!! Even though it’s at the end of the ingredient list. It does contain BHA but a weaker form of salicylic acid. Overall, the ingredients look pretty good. I’m not sure how effective it is. The sample was just a tiny pouch. I used it 1-2 times and my skin didn’t break out either time. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized but not oily or greasy. This is something I would like to try again. I must now! lol. I’ve been trying to find a good BHA product and this one also contains tea tree.
Whew!! Those are my thoughts on these samples. So, it looks like it’s 2/5 that I really liked! 🙂
