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!
Review: Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Balm
I absolutely love cleansing balms. I had a chance to try Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Balm. If you LOVE cleansing balms, don’t forget to go check out my latest review on this cleansing balm right here. I’ll drop the link right here. Enjoy! 😃
My Experience with Banila Co Clean it Zero 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm!
Now on to Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Balm!
This cleansing balm transforms from a solid balm to a silky oil to gently remove impurities without stripping moisture from the skin. It includes antioxidant-rich green tea to fight against harmful effects of pollution and free radicals. It leaves the skin healthy, soft, and glowy. Removes makeup, dirt, oil without over-drying the skin. Rinses away easily. It’s paraben-free, phthalates-free, SLS-free, and petroleum-free. No animal testing. Responsible sourcing and recyclable.
Now here are my results and experience with Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Balm! 🙂
This cleansing balm comes in a 3 oz. jar. It’s tiny. When opening the jar, I noticed that the cleansing balm is the same coloring as the packaging. It’s a light pale greenish hue (see photo below to see the color of the cleansing balm product). It’s not a fragrance-free product. It has an herbal scent to it. The balm is soft to touch. Yes, it comes in solid form and melts into an oil. Well, it should fully melt into an oil. It didn’t fully melt into an oil for me, lol. There were still little chunks of the product in my palm even though I tried to rub the product a little more and add some heat to it for it to melt. It took a little more effort to melt the product. *sigh* That’s a negative.
The cleansing balm does feel oily as I expected it to be. I mean, it’s called a cleansing OIL balm. Says so right on the packaging. When applied to the skin, it feels soft and gentle on the skin. I actually do like the oiliness of the product. It helps to glide the product across the face much easier. It also helps to glide the product in the most delicate areas of the face, such as the eye area. It felt moisturizing on the skin too. But did it help to remove my makeup? It removed my foundation, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and other makeup, but I had trouble removing my mascara with this cleansing balm. I even left it on for a bit longer to give it a chance to break down the makeup/mascara. Nope, it didn’t work. My mascara was still sitting on my lashes just staring back at me.
So I was disappointed in the fact that it did a poor job at removing my mascara. Perhaps this cleansing balm isn’t for me. Removing my mascara was one of the most important parts of being a good makeup remover. So, I’m not very happy with the overall results. On top of that, I thought this cleansing balm felt a little too waxy. It does contain wax in the ingredients after all. Looking at the ingredients, it contains helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed wax. I tried rinsing the cleansing balm off, and my skin looked waxy afterwards. I don’t recommend using this cleansing balm as a face wash. Make sure to follow-up with an actual facial cleanser to remove any residue left behind on the skin. In saying that, it doesn’t rinse away easily or clean. Also, this cleansing balm isn’t gentle around the eyes but it is on other parts of the skin. My eyes burned. If you have sensitive eyes (or not), be careful using it around the eyes.
This is what the cleansing balm looks like. Mine had bubbles in it (fresh and new) that I couldn’t resist poking at. They left holes behind, lol. I was expecting more of a softer appearance to the balm. It looks more hard and waxy.
Pros & Cons
- Feels soft and gentle on the facial skin (not the eyes)
- Moisturizing on the skin
- No animal testing
- Contains fragrance (herbal smell)
- Feels waxy
- Doesn’t melt easily
- Burns the eyes. Not for sensitive eyes.
- Didn’t remove all of my eye makeup (mascara)
I wasn’t a huge fan of Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil Balm after my experience with it. The product feels way too waxy, doesn’t melt easily, and didn’t remove all of my makeup off properly. I’ve tried other cleansing balms, and I find Burt’s Bees to be below average. It’s not a cleansing balm I would purchase again. I thought it would be better, but I’m just not into it anymore. haha. I’ve moved on to better makeup removers/cleansing balms.
