A vitamin-rich cleansing oil that removes makeup, softens skin and clears your complexion


Skin looks healthier than ever before



by Kat

My normal to oily, sensitive and blemish-prone skin has gone through so many challenges. Indeed, this young skin (I’m just turning 18) with never-ending problems (blackheads, pimples, cystic acne) needed a clean break! And by that, I mean really clean!!! So, when I got the Truth In Aging email my mother forwarded to me, I was so intrigued. It was about a natural cleansing product that would not only remove make-up but also exfoliate, detoxify, soften and restore moisture and balance to my skin! It was then a no-brainer that I should put this “multi-tasker” to a serious test.

Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Cleaning Oil ($42) has many wonderful claims to be excited about. Upon opening the box, I was first impressed with the very sleek packaging. The dark brown bottle with white pump looks simple yet sophisticated. There were different ways to use the product: you could warm it up in your palms, apply it to a dry face, then add a bit of warm water and massage it into a slightly creamy texture and rinse away, or you could use a cotton pad without rinsing.

I tried both ways at different times. I found that for my skin and depending on the amount of concealer and eye makeup products I have on, using the product both ways (in that order) provided the best results. As I could see from the cotton pad that hardly showed a trace of leftover makeup, I felt confident that this cleansing oil did its job. I was also pleasantly surprised by its tropical, pina-colada like scent, which I enjoyed because most makeup removers/cleansers do not have a particularly inviting smell. It was able to remove my waterproof mascara with such ease! It is true that just a couple pumps of this colorless light oil is enough to “effortlessly lift away impurities and makeup!”

There’s no denying it worked fabulously as a makeup remover the very first time I used it. Still, I used the cleanser religiously morning and night whether or not I wore makeup because I wanted to see if it truly would detox my problematic skin. After just two weeks, I noticed that my complexion had greatly improved, with blemishes remarkably diminished and skin so moist and soft!

The cleanser’s vitamin B is found in the curcubita pepo or pumpkin seed oil (which is also rich in vitamin A, C and E), papain and carica papaya or papaya seed oil (also rich in vitamin C and minerals) and provides the powerful antioxidants and fatty acids. Another key ingredient, helianthus annuus or sunflower seed oil, is rich in vitamin A, C, D and E, and known to be an excellent treatment for acne. In addition to these organic oils, Active Moisture also contains tocopherol, a natural non-GMO vitamin E, along with proprietary natural and organic fragrance. One particular ingredient I haven’t really heard of before is the di-ppg-2myreth-10 adipate. However, the cosmetic data base resource I consulted did not really find it harmful, describing it as a “skin conditioning agent, emollient, surfactant solubilizing agent.”

There is still a fourth of the product left in the 4 oz bottle after these four weeks of use. I definitely will order another one soon. I highly recommend it because it is effective in not only cleansing but also nourishing my skin, which is now looking healthier than ever before!

    Hi Karen, yes you would use it as a regular cleanser. Kat, our reviewer, used it morning and night as mentioned in her review.

    I am not giving a review I would like to know if I could use this every night and morning just like a cleanser? Thanks Karen
