I read the reviews and description of hydrophilic oils on the manufacturer's website Spivak and opted for hydrophilic oil for removing makeup Argan.
Why did I buy my initial data : As the owner of capricious, sensitive skin, for me there is a big question in the selection of makeup products. In order not to describe all the subtleties of my skin, I’ll write more briefly, if it’s not necessary, I do not put anything on my face once again for prevention purposes. I use decorative cosmetics to a minimum - I have a tattoo on my eyelids, and only temporary mascara, lipstick, sometimes powder and eye shadow and all strictly defined brands, because my skin gives out a reaction. Therefore, actually I don’t have much to wash off my face.
My skin is of a combined type, the T-zone sometimes wants to shine and have black dots, especially in summer. And the cheeks, during the heating period, rush to dryness, at other times there are no problems with them.
I bought hydrophilic oil for two reasons: wash mascara from the eyelashes, take care of them, and also escape from dryness when it is.
Consistency, smell, composition: Packed in a plastic bottle with an opening lid and a dispenser, which can also be unscrewed if desired. Net weight 100 grams. Shelf life 1 year.
The oil itself is yellowish in appearance, has a smell reminiscent of refined sunflower, not harsh, not intrusive, without perfumes. The consistency is like that of liquid oil, really oily.
Composition: I really liked it, yet with all the abundance of care products, few can boast of the natural composition.
Rapeseed oil, almond, argan, polysorbate 80, rosemary extract.
The purpose of the oil is to remove makeup from the eyes and cleanse the skin
The manufacturer recommends applying oil to a cotton pad and brushing it several times over the skin, do not rub, then rinse with water. If you look at the points because of which I bought this drug, then
1. Makeup from the eyes, it really removes, but "do not rub!" as the manufacturer advises, it doesn’t work in any way, since you do it anyway, trying to wash off the mascara or annoying shadows. As for the quality of removing makeup from the eyes, I can only put 4 points out of 5. I now have 2 mascaras Vivienne Sabo Modeliste and Max Factor False Effect. I had to rub longer with the first mascara, but I coped with the second perfectly. When applying the product on the eyelashes, I moisten the cotton pad well and hold it to my eyelids, hold it for a few seconds, then start to wash. The mascara, as it were, curls into small lumps and remains on a cotton pad, around the eyes, nothing is smeared with black circles, which I especially like. I did a fine job with a small amount of Revlon Nearly Nacked powder, but in itself this powder is very light, not corrosive, and I put a little powder. I didn’t try to wash the lipstick, it never came to this.
2. I consider the leaving qualities to be solid 5 points. Firstly, the natural composition nourishes the eyelashes and delicate skin of the eyelids. I did not notice the growth of eyelashes, as many people write, but the growth of eyebrows, which turned out to be very inappropriate, could please a bezbrovochny creature. I have been plucking my surplus eyebrows for many years, and they began to grow worse, the hairs became thinner, the growth generally slowed down, but as soon as the skin in these places recognized the hydrophilic oil, the eyebrows rose again. I must admit, I did not expect this. I would prefer eyelashes.
Another pleasant moment was the condition of the skin during the dry period. During the heating period, as I already wrote, as well as from city tap water, the cheek area becomes dry, moistening is required, and so the hydrophilic Argan oil coped with this problem with a bang. No dryness for 2 days of use, plus the skin itself is smooth and soft, the sensations are wonderful, better than any of the creams. However, the T-zone, prone to fat, endured Argan for the time being, then shone brightly, had to slow down. Therefore, for its type of skin and its features, I came to the conclusion that it is possible to use the entire area of the face only during the period requiring hydration, or strictly to certain areas, or simply remove makeup from the eyes.
Another point, if you are not lazy and nourish your cilia, then you can get your eyes wet with a cotton pad and the skin around it and do not touch anything else. given the good composition, it is thought that eyelashes will be grateful.
If the skin after using Argan or in the summertime becomes oily, then instead of this, I use my favorite Foam for removing makeup from Natura Siberik "Youth and Radiance of the Skin"
Another unexpected plus was the healing effect. While walking with the child, I very much weathered my face, at first I didn’t even notice, and then my face covered with something like a dry thin crust, I began to pinch, something like the smallest cracks appeared on my cheeks. I spread it with hydrophilic oil and left it for a couple of minutes, then washed it off, the next day I repeated the procedure, and the previous condition of the skin returned, no tightness or tingling.
The product is quite economical, you don’t need to pour it with displacement, it is distributed well over the skin, apparently due to the fact that it is still oil.
After application, it needs to be washed off with water, it won’t be immediately rubbed off, yet the oily sensations on the skin remain, but this is not required. I wash my face with tap water, not to creak, then rinse with boiled water and dab it with a towel (do not rub). When the skin dries completely, then there is no hint of oil or fat on the face.
In general, in general, I am very pleased with this tool. It seemed to me effective, personally for my skin and its features. I use it from time to time as a moisturizing and nourishing agent for the whole face, and for removing makeup from the eyes all the time. I admit completely that someone didn’t like it or didn’t fit it, we are all very different and everyone’s skin requires a different approach, well, here I definitely didn’t open America, everyone has their own beauty recipes.
When it is over, I will definitely buy Hydrophilic oil again, but Spivak has such a wide choice that I want to try others, if they don’t fit, I will definitely buy Argan again.
