As a good foundation is to a makeup routine, cleanser in my opinion is it’s skincare counterpart, and today I’m here for a much requested post on this new Tom Ford cleanser hitting the counters later this month.
Of course no one NEEDS a $100 cleanser, but for those of you who are interested, read on.
The new Purifying Cleansing Oil comes in a frosted glass pump bottle. It truly encapsulates the essence of Tom Ford Beauty, iconic, sexy & unapologetically luxurious.
As all things Tom Ford, this oil is created with some of the finest ingredients in skincare right now.
Nourishing oils such as Jasmine Flower oil, Evening Primrose oil, Buriti oil, Tamanu oil paired with botanical extracts, Panax Ginseng Root extract & Thistle fruit extract come together to purify & cleanse the skin. The mixture of these makes a clear, velvety smooth oil that surprisingly doesn’t smell ‘spa like’. To me it smells biscuity and not one bit artificial, which I really REALLY like! If you hate the overly healthy smell of plant extracts, you won’t have that problem here.
To cleanse off a full face of makeup I’d recommend 2-3 pumps applied directly onto a dry face (it’s important that you do not wet the skin in advance).
Work in the oil in smooth motions till the makeup breaks down and starts to come off (just about a minute or so). Then add water to emulsify till the mixture looks milky and rinse clean. There will be no oily residue.
Overall I found the formula very gentle and never experienced any irritation over the month of use. I can safely recommend it even to those of you with sensitive eyes.
The bottom line
I’d recommend this to all skin types and ages. Even safe to use around the eye area for removal of waterproof mascara. It’s gentle and won’t sting.
If your budget permits, definitely something i’d highly recommend trying. Of course I can’t say it does a better job than my less fancy oil cleansers, though I understand the price reflects the ingredients used as well as the luxurious packaging and appreciate it for what it is.
It’s a good cleanser that get’s the job done while making my skincare routine that much more enjoyable! I’ll be repurchasing.
