It has a thick consistency but it’s not heavy on the skin. I love the scent of the moisturiser it smells incredible.

I really love this oil cleanser. I love to double cleanse. I love using this cleanser as my first cleanse. It effectively removes my makeup from eyes to face. It did not sting my eyes which I am very surprised about, majority of the cleansing balms and cleansing oils do sting my eyes. This was very gentle. This cleanser emulsifies with water, and becomes creamy. The consistency of the oil is on the thin side. I really enjoy using light weight cleansing oils.
