Review: Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil

Hello guys!

A month ago I made a haul post about what I bought when I was in Trinoma. Most of you requested a review about...

Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil

I know it took us quite a while to make one so I apologize for that.

Anyway, what made me buy this was because I've been looking for cleansing oils that can serve as makeup removers. I just can't get to love those cheaper makeup removers with a mixture of blue and colorless liquid (I don't know what they are called. Haha!) because they aren't enough (for the ones I've tried) to remove the makeup on my face. I usually wear full makeup from heavy coverage foundations to waterproof mascaras.

I just stumbled on this one by accident. I was looking for masks and was led to the Human Nature products. I have heard of the brand from various blogs but I've never tried them. I am in the process of finishing some of my facial washes and cleansers that's why I rarely go to that section but when I saw this, it reminded me of the makeup remover from Fasio that my sister and I used to have. It was one of the best I've tried so I wanted to try this one too.

It's very affordable compared to some makeup removers so I immediately added it to my shopping cart.

Here are some information at the back of the bottle:

Since it's from Human Nature, it's all natural as they claim their products to be. It also has no parabens.

Here's some product description from the website:

Product Description
100% Natural

Take it all off with our premium cleansing oil. It gently erases all traces of makeup, even the most stubborn waterproof mascara! Just apply on your face and wipe off. It works double-time too – whereas most cleansing oils and make-up removers are packed with chemicals that strip your skin, ours is a naturally healthy oil which actually conditions your lashes and nourishes your skin.

Did you know: Mineral oil, commonly used in personal care products, can actually clog pores. It works by sitting on the skin’s surface, thus blocking pores and impeding the skin’s ability to release toxins. It also dries skin and speeds up premature skin-ageing.

I like that it is in a pump-bottle. It's easy to get the product and more hygienic.
It doesn't have any annoying smell. It actually has a mild sweet smell.
Liz also noticed that it isn't greasy on the skin.

Here's some of the products that are hard to remove by ordinary washing.

I applied them on my hand and will remove them using Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil.

Bluuuured. But anyway, I just added a pump of the product.

I massaged them thoroughly. I also added a few drops of water to make it feel less thick. :P

And after wiping it off with tissue, here's the result!
It removed the annoying-to-remove waterproof mascara from Max Factor but didn't completely remove Bourjois' liquid mascara and MUFE's waterproof liner.

It does remove my heavy foundations but the waterproof products would take a lot of rubbing to completely take off. Might need to wash your face a few more times or use a facial cleansing tissue like I do.

Overall, it is a pretty decent product. Not the best I've tried but it does the job well. And it is VERY affordable! It also doesn't cause me break outs and doesn't dry my skin. I honestly really like it.

Would I buy again? Most probably. Unless I find another that is also affordable and works just as well. :)

Have you tried this? Do you like other products from Human Nature? Do you know any cleansing oils that are affordable and a must-try?
