REVIEW- L'oreal Miracle Cleansing Oil

Lately I've been in to cleansers in a big way.
The dream, I'm sure we all agree, is for skin so good make-up isn't required.
Unfortunately this is but a dream. Unless you're, like, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

I don't know about you, but I (Little Miss OCD) can't stand the thought of grime on my face. Maybe not on, more specifically- in.
The thought of all those pore-clogging nasties we encounter every day without even thinking about it *shivers*

When I get in after a long day, washing it all away is somewhat of a therapy for me.
What is it that man once said?..The best ideas often happen in the shower.
Maybe that's a little off tangent. But the point is, cleansing is a form of therapy.
For me, anyway.

Now, I'm a big fan of L'oreal's Micellar Solution.
And with the launch of that (what has become) beauty blogger's holy grail, came this-

Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil.
I got this on offer for £3.99- think it's usual price is around £5.99
Is it worth it? Well a decent pack of cleansing wipes is going to set you back the offer price, and this is definitely going to last longer.

First of all, I was surprised to find it's a pump instead of a spray- but I guess that's neither here nor there.
Like the Micellar Solution, the packaging is clean and looks fresh.
One pump and you rub it over your face to get rid of make-up.
Does it wipe away waterpoof mascara? Yes.
But it does leave some residue.
Unlike the Micellar Solution, this has to be washed or wiped away. Which might be a bit inconvenient if you're on the go.
But it goes on smooth, feels good on the skin and cleans in seconds.

All in all, I really like this.
But not as much as its watery friend.
Of the two, I'd say go with that. But if you love cleansing as much as I do (because I lead a very sad existence), then threat yourself to this as well.
