I’m still wondering how can I talk to you about this produit only in May 2018 while it’s been my ultimate must have since 2016 … I’m sooooo ashamed!
Meanwhile, I obviously wanted to try other products, textures, brands… Some were very convincing and I won’t forget to talk to you about them this time, but I always come back to this Re:cipe Cleansing Oil Rose Petal which is for me, and sooooo far, the best on earth. At least. And if up to this point you’re not fond of cleansing oils and removing your makeup with your own fingertips, it’s now my mission to make you change your mind before the end of this post. ;)
The Korean brand Re:cipe
Re:cipe is a quite underrated Korean cosmestics brand, which doesn’t have many products but for the few that exist… I really want to have ALL ahah. Re:cipe really wants to do things through great quality, original textures and ingredients. To sum things up, I couldn’t NOT not like this brand. Strangely, it’s quite difficult to purchase it so I always go to TesterKorea to fill my stock up. If you have other links, don’t hesitate to share them on the comments! ♡
My review of the Re:cipe Cleansing Oil Rose Petal
Can I start this review with anything but the oil itself? You could have imagine it thanks to the title, and it’s right : The bottle has real rose petals that stroll through the oil and make it almost precious. It is wasn’t so efficient, I would almost have keep it to decorate my room.
It’s actually Damas roses petals, whose essential oil is known for its healing, firming, regenerative, and revitalising properties. And when you see its position in the ingredients list, you’ll be rather happy to spread it all over your face…
Have you ever seen a short list like it ? Excluding emolliants, fragrances and hydrating agents, here’re the different oils you can find in the Re:cipe Cleansing Oil Rose Petal
- Damas Rose Oil: like I said above healing, firming, regenerative and revitalising
- Jojoba Oil: Regulating, smoothing and protecting against deshydratation
- Olive Oil: Protecting, nourishing and fighting against age’s signs.
- Macadamia Oil: Protecting, nourishing, restructuring and softening.
Bonus: NO paraben, mineral oil, alcohol, benzophenone, artificial colorants and talcum powder.
And… that’s all folks! Here is the best cleansing oil’s secret. The only thing which could be better than is would be to snap fingers and get clear face, seriously !
Besides, I think it’s always useful to remind that oils (cleansing or not) are NOT BAD for oily skins, far from it. In 2018, I hope we’ll be able to stop the « no oil for oily skins with sebum» nonsense because it’s absolutely wrong! This Re:cipe oil is good for all skins‘ types sooo… go go go !
Another incredible thing we can see on the packaging, is that it’s written in Korean, English… and French! It’s made in Korea but the RD Lab seems to be implanted in France. Surprising, isn’t it? Impossible to misunderstand the directions even if there’s nothing more simple : 1 or 2 pumps in the palm of the hand, then gently massage the face to remove absolutely ALL the make up (even the most waterproof one) and it leaves your face clear without any oily or greasy finish, ladies and gentlemen !
I say « no oily finish » because it’s the best point of this oil. A lot of cleansing oils and balms are doing great at removing the makeup, but they often leave an almost sticky finish and the first thing I want to do is to cleanse it right away. As much as I love creams with a sticky finish because it makes my skin firm and plump, I really don’t want my makeup remover to try to do so. It will obviously be done as we neeeever end the skincare routine at the makeup removing step (right ? right ??), but this Re:cipe Cleansing Oil Rose Petal is also cool to use in the morning to cleanse all the impurities, sweating, etc of last night.
Oil cleansing becomes an actual reflex! Its fragrance is pleasent, it emulsifies a bit with water and the skin is completely cleansed without being dry or tugged.
Removing your make up with your fingers is really enjoyable, and it’s ecofriendly because you don’t use any cotton pad. That way you can feel your bare skin under your fingers and understand it, see how it evolves, etc. Don’t underestimate oil cleansing, it’s REALLY the best. ;)
And concerning this particular oil: I told you, it’s perfect. Beautiful, clean, efficient, perfect !
