Review: Purito From Green Cleansing Oil
I finally finished my bottle of iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil and started another cleansing oil. I’ve had this one for a while. I’ve just placed it in the corner until I’m ready to use it again. Since I’m done with iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil, I’m ready to try it out again! The cleansing oil I’m using now is Purito From Green Cleansing Oil. Since my skin is at its vulnerable state, I have to be extremely gentle and baby my skin. I thought this cleansing oil would be a really good choice, since it’s olive oil based. From what I remember, it’s a thicker, richer cleansing oil. And that’s something my skin really needs at the moment. Just slathering a bunch of heavy, rich, ultra-moisturizing products on my face for the time being until my skin heals. So the purpose of this cleansing oil is to remove heavy, oily makeup and sunscreen. It helps to break down makeup, impurities, sebum deep within the pores. That sounds perfect! I’ve had this cleansing oil for months, but I’ve only been using it for less than a week. Here are my thoughts on this cleansing oil so far! I hope this is helpful! Read on!
This cleansing oil comes out thick, heavy, and rich. Just like how I remember it. It’s olive oil based. The first ingredient in this product is Olive Fruit Oil. The product is green in color. Just like the packaging. It comes in a 200 mL bottle. It’s not a super affordable cleansing oil compared to the other ones I’ve used. But, let’s try it out anyways since I have it. I take 1-2 pumps of this cleansing oil and apply it to my skin. Since it’s thicker in consistency, it makes it difficult to move it across the face. Sometimes I add a pump of my own oil (not a cleansing oil), so the product glides across my skin much easier and smoother. I’m currently using organic hemp oil. Read more about it here!
When applied to the skin, it feels thick in texture and consistency. Since my skin is in need of products that are heavy and super moisturizing. This fits the bill. It feels very moisturizing on the skin while cleansing the skin, but it doesn’t do a good job at removing makeup, especially my eye makeup (mascara, water-proof eyeliner). I haven’t found a cleansing oil that works at removing makeup very well yet. After rinsing the cleansing oil off of the skin, it does leave a creamy, white residue behind on the skin. I don’t recommend using this cleansing oil alone to cleanse the skin, especially if you have skin that’s prone to breakouts. I recommend following up with a facial cleanser. That’s what I do every time. Make sure I remove every single trace of the cleansing oil off of my facial skin to prevent breakouts from happening.
So this cleansing oil does contain other ingredients too, such as sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and grapeseed oil. It also contains surfactants to help aid the removal of oils when rinsing the cleansing oil off of the facial skin. The only ingredient in this product I’m afraid of is caprylic/capric triglyceride. As someone with breakout-prone skin, I avoid this ingredient majority of the time unless the product works for me. So far, it’s been a terrible ingredient for my skin type. But, fortunately, this is a cleansing oil, and it’s not left on my skin for very long. It gets rinsed off after gently massaging it into my skin to remove makeup, debris, sebum, and sunscreen. I haven’t had any issues as of yet. So far, it’s working for me. And I love the fact that it doesn’t irritate my skin and feels so darn moisturizing, especially when my skin needs to heal.
Pros & Cons
- Very moisturizing
- Contains olive, oil, almond oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil
- Gentle enough for every day use
- Essential-oil free
- Doesn’t remove eye makeup properly
I really liked Purito From Green Cleansing Oil. It contains oils that work on my skin, such as olive oil (love this one!), almond oil (a bit on the thicker side but doesn’t irritate my skin), sunflower oil, jojoba oil, and grapeseed oil. It does contain caprylic/capric triglyceride, which is coconut-derived, so I don’t know if this is the cleansing oil for me in the long run. But, so far, everything has been going well besides it not being able to remove my eye makeup completely. I need to use another oil to help with that. With this cleansing oil, I haven’t had any breakouts from it yet. I hope I don’t get any breakouts. Since my skin needs a lot of nourishment and conditioning, this cleansing oil is working very well on my skin. It moisturizes, conditions, and feels very soothing on the skin while my skin heals. After this experience, it’s not so bad as I thought it was! This one could work well for the cooler, colder months. But I’m not sure if I’ll pick up another bottle when I finish it, since it’s a little pricey for the amount of product. Right now, it’s good, it works. I wish it was more affordable. I still think my organic hemp oil works better, and it’s less expensive. I think I’m going to stick with that.

Review: iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil
I’ve taken up using cleansing oils again. I have a bunch of them, but I decided to start off with iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil. When I first purchased this cleansing oil, I wanted something lightweight, refreshing, and something that removes my makeup (especially my eye makeup) and sunscreen properly. Something with better oils in it too. Other cleansing oils that I have tried contained mineral oil, which my skin didn’t seem to like. I also had a hard time finding a cleansing oil that actually removes my eyeliner and mascara. They claimed to remove makeup, but my eye makeup didn’t budge much, and I didn’t want to tug at my eye area. I shouldn’t have to, right? If the product truly works to remove all makeup. Remember to be as gentle as possible with your skin! That’s very important, especially when a product doesn’t get the job done right, and you get very frustrated with it. ✨ So I haven’t found one that can remove my eye makeup successfully. Let’s see if this one can. 🙂 I’ve had iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil for about 4 months now. I was using it consistently, but I stopped using it for a while. I just picked up using it again because I have it. I didn’t want to waste it. Now here are my thoughts on this cleansing oil after a few weeks into using it again.
This cleansing oil feels lightweight on the skin. It’s not too thin in consistency or too thick. Just right. It has a flowery smell to it. I’m not too fond of the smell. The scent is most likely from the Calendula Flower Extract. Along with Calendula Flower Extract, this cleansing oil also contains oils, such as…
- sunflower seed oil
- canola oil
- jojoba seed oil
- macadamia seed oil
- ylang ylang oil
- chamomile oil
These oils help to break down makeup, sunscreen, residue, dirt, debris, or whatever is on the skin. The oils in this product caught my eye. It looks pretty good compared to the other cleansing oils I have used before. There’s no mineral oil in it. And as for all cleansing oils, they contain surfactants to help aid the removal process. With this cleansing oil, I use about 1-2 pumps of product. I lean towards 2 pumps most of the time. I have a hard time moving the oil across my face with just 1 pump of product. It gently removes makeup on my face just fine. But when I try to remove my eye makeup (eyeliner, mascara) with this cleansing oil, it was very difficult to remove it. It didn’t remove all of it. I still had eyeliner stuck on my eyelids. My mascara was still on my lashes. Uh Oh. What a bummer. I wanted a cleansing oil that removes my eye makeup, but this one also failed to do just that. I mean, it does soothe my skin and moisturizes it. I haven’t had any skin irritations or an allergic reaction to it. No breakouts from it since I follow up with a facial cleanser to ensure my skin is left spotless and clean. But it didn’t remove all traces of makeup as it claims to do. Hmm, this cleansing oil really let me down. One of the many things (most important of them all to me) I wanted this cleansing oil to do was to remove my stubborn eye makeup, which it failed to do. I love how gentle this cleansing oil is, but it didn’t completely do what it’s supposed to do. So what I did was mix it with some of my organic jojoba oil. And there you have it, finally, all of my makeup has been removed including my eye makeup. From this experience, I don’t think iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil is right for me. I don’t see the point in continuing to use it if it doesn’t remove all of my makeup. It looks like a no-go product. I’m on the search for something new…
Pros & Cons
- Gentle on the skin
- Removes face makeup just fine
- Doesn’t contain mineral oil
- Can’t stand the flowery smell of this product
- Doesn’t remove eye makeup (eyeliner, mascara) properly
So iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil has a ton of good reviews. My experience was not too bad. It removed my face makeup, sunscreen, dirt, debris, and all of that stuff, but it failed to remove what I wanted it to remove the most, which is my eyeliner and mascara. I don’t even put that much on, lol. Still, having a ton of eye makeup on shouldn’t hinder the product from removing it completely. It just shows that it’s incapable of removing tough eye makeup. And it claims to be able to. I still had leftovers of my eye makeup on my eyelids and lashes after cleansing my skin with this cleansing oil. It just didn’t work. Out of all of the cleansing oils I have, this one was my favorite in terms of ingredients. The consistency of the oil was just about right. Much better than the other ones I have used. From this experience, I won’t purchase it again, but I can see how some people might like it. It’s a decent product. I just need something that takes off my eye makeup without having to put a lot of pressure on my eyes. Since it didn’t work, I’m on to the next.
