Hello there! I’m so sorry for the late-ness of this post. Grab yourself a cup of tea and enjoy! Here is my review on the MooGoo Oil Cleansing Method (oily skin formula).
I purchased the MooGoo Oil Cleansing Method (for oily skin) on a whim and I am SO glad I did. I was looking for a product that was going to effectively clean my skin without leaving it “squeaky” and bring balance back to the oil-slick mess that was happening on my face on a daily basis. Once I read the back of the bottle, I was sold. So let’s start with the packaging.
The Oil Cleansing Method is packaged in a brushed aluminium bottle lined inside to prevent interaction between the container and the oils. The bottle is also equipped with a pump (which I love) as I can control exactly how much product comes out. It even comes with a pump “stopper” which you can slide on, so if you happen to be travelling it prevents the pump from moving up and down. The bottle contains 100ml of product. The only con about the packaging is that I wish it came in a much bigger bottle!
I purchased the cleanser from my local chemist for $24.95 AUD. For me that seemed a little pricey for only 100ml of product, but the ingredients are quality and I only need to use a small amount with each use so that justified the purchase for me. There are several chemists here in Townsville that sell the MooGoo range but if you get stuck, the MooGoo website has a list of stockists where you live OR you can buy directly from the website. Not in Australia? No problem! MooGoo ship to the US, UK, Europe, Malaysia, and Ireland.
Initially, I was a little hesitant to use an oil cleanser on my already oily skin, but after reading the packaging and doing a bit of research on the MooGoo website, I was ready to give it a go. According to MooGoo’s website, here are the ingredients in the “oily skin” formula:
Now before I go any further, one thing I absolutely love about MooGoo is that their website details every single ingredient listed in their products and explains WHY and HOW the ingredient works. You don’t see that very often in the beauty and skin care industry! It’s so wonderful to know exactly what is going on my skin and why!
4. How to use it
As per the instructions on the bottle, there are two ways in which you can use this cleanser.
For me, I use the deep cleansing method 2-3 times a week as it gently exfoliates my skin as I use the face washer to remove the product, dirt and makeup from my skin. It is so relaxing placing a warm, wet face washer over your face to let the oils do their thang! One pump of product is more than enough to use on your face and neck, it spreads so easily and the smell of the blend of oils is just delicious.
5. How the product actually works
I will leave the explaining up to MooGoo… Here is what they say on their website:
6. The oil cleansing method range
MooGoo make four different blends of the Oil Cleansing Method for different skin types (dry, normal, combination and oily)…. how good is that!! I would only assume that every skin type can achieve the type of results I have in such a short amount of time!
7. My thoughts
Firstly, I’ll give you a bit of background to my skin. It’s oily, blemish prone and I suffer from a very uneven skin tone. I also have a fair bit of hyper pigmentation on my skin as well as old pimple scars. It’s not perfect, but I am hoping the continual use of this product and more products from the MooGoo range will help me on my way to glowing, clear skin!
I have been consistently using this product for around two weeks now and I can safely say I am in LOVE! I love the way my skin feels after using this… It’s clean, yet so nourished and moisturised without feeling oily! I have noticed a reduction in the oil production on my face, however, the weather has been cooler in North Queensland too so it may be a combination of both this and the cleasner. I have also noticed that my skin tone appears more even and the redness around my nose and cheeks doesn’t seem as bad. I haven’t had one blemish since using this product…. AND the blackheads on my nose have disappeared!!
I am yet to find a product in the MooGoo range that I don’t love. I adore the baby range (and so does my daughter) and I always have a tube of the Eczema and Psoriasis Cream lying around the house. Such amazing products. I am excited to try more and I have a feeling my whole skin care regime will be 100% MooGoo! What’s even better? It’s an Australian Owned and Made company! Love it!
I hope this review is helpful to you. Please give this product a go if you are in the market for a new cleanser…. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone is – MooGoo has it covered for you!
