When I tried the new Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil, I was struck by how similar it was to the I Nuovi Cleanse Splash Away Makeup Cleansing Oil (a mouthful which I’ll call I Nuovi Cleansing Oil from now on). I also realised that although my bottle is nearly finished, I’d never mentioned it prior to this! How remiss 😛
No better time than the present! 😀 If I’m not using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion, I’m using this I Nuovi Cleansing Oil. I like the slightly thin runny texture. If you are used to the cleansing oils of Shu Uemura you may find this a little too liquid. However, it has the same texture as that of Bobbi Brown.
Liquid or not, I find it works a treat for me. You must note that all cleansing oils must be used on a DRY face with DRY hands for it to work properly. I’ve previously given my tips on how to properly use cleansing oils for most effective results.
The texture of the I Nuovi cleansing oil is light yet it works well to remove all traces of makeup and leaves skin smooth and clean. The scent is pleasant – geranium if I’m not mistaken – and most importantly, it does not cause my skin to break out. My skin is clean after use although I do double cleanse out of habit. I find the scent rather similar to the one from Bobbi Brown too.
