boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel (review)

An antioxidant-packed cleansing oil-gel formulated to remove impurities and makeup while protecting the skin’s moisture barrier, leaving skin smoother and baby-soft. 

This cleansing oil hydrates and replenishes, leaving skin silky smooth. A signature, lightweight botanical blend of tsubaki oil (camellia oil), wakame (Japanese sea kelp), and rice bran oil hydrates, smooths, and protects for the appearance of firm, youthful skin.  

Formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 
Product is preservative, artificial fragrance, color, gluten and ethanol alcohol-free. 

I have had this product for quite sometime now. In fact as I type this, the bottle is ready to go to empties bin. I love the boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil. This cleansing gel, not so much.

Color: It is clear with a slight pink hue to it, which is more visible in the bottle.

Texture and Consistency: Thick, not too dense nor too sticky gel.

Scent: It has rose scent or something that smells like rose. Not very intense and it does not lingers on for ever.

Application: I just use a single pump (approximately dime size product) and apply it all over my wet face. It does not lathers or foams. I massage the product for about 45 seconds and then rinse it off with plain water.

Feel and Effect on Skin: The skin feels clean and not dry at all. There is no residue left, but it feels like the skin gets a layer of moisturizer or oil. The gel is very gentle and it does not rips the skin of its natural oils. The cleansing oil gel did not remove my makeup completely. In fact a lot of it was still left. There is no tingling, minty or cooling sensation of any kind with one.

Packaging: The product comes in a plastic bottle with pump dispenser. The dispenser has a longer spout and it is very well made. There is also a small stopper, that prevents the accidental dispensing of the product, making it a good travel buddy.

Verdict: As a cleanser, it is very gentle and I find it very good for my dry skin. It does not performs great as a makeup remover or as make up removing gel. I prefer to use it as my second cleanse, once I have removed my make up completely. It has no AHA or any enzymes, so I don't have to be too careful applying sunscreen after every wash. This is a good, everyday gentle cleanser, but not a great one. Nothing too phenomenal or unique.
