Murad Renewing Cleansing Oil Review

Thursday, October 15, 2015

PR Sample - Do you prefer cleansing oil or cleansing water to double cleanse? I've tried both ... DHC (cleansing oil) and Bioderma (cleansing water). My dry skin, seems to prefer cleansing oil. When I saw that Murad had a cleansing oil (Murad Renewing Cleansing Oil), I added it to my WISHlist and Murad sent it to me to try out. This is an excellent cleansing oil. It removes makeup effortlessly. However, there are some things you should know. This oil is very moisturizing! Not greasy. Not slick. Not oily. Moisturizing. In my humble opinion, this will only work for individuals with DRY SKIN. It left my DRY SKIN, very supple and nourished. My skin loved it! BUT... I personally would only use this in the Winter or colder months. I feel it's too much for Spring or Summer (hotter months). This oil is scented (and you know how I feel about scented skincare products) but Murad gets an A+ for their scents, because they do not offend or affect me. As a matter of fact, they are very appealing. It smells like a Spring breeze! It's delightful. The cap on the bottle, allows for a couple of drops at a time. So you never have to worry about spilling the entire bottle. I would prefer a pump for dispensing, but aesthetically I can see why they chose a sleeker design. This applies as an oil to the face. The reason why I mention that, is the DHC Cleansing Oily applies as an oil but foams up once water is applied (which I love). That is not the case with the Murad Renewing Cleansing Oil. It washes away cleanly, but it remains as an oil. So that took a little getting use to. Again, it does what it says! But you must take into account your skin type and the season, so it does limit usage. I didn't experience any adverse reactions while using this product (no irritation, redness, swelling or stinging of eyes). So those are my thoughts!

I love oil to remove my makeup too! They remove the most stubborn waterproof makeup easily :)

The first time I heard of this cleanser I might have to consider in trying. Another great review.

I like the idea of a cleasing oil - I use face oil all the time for my skin, but this looks and sounds great,

Hope you are well Kim, see you around,

First time I hear about this oil, thanks for sharing! :)

Samantha Mariko said...

I'm liking the black backdrop for the photos! I've heard of Murad but never tried their products. I was using Shu Uemura cleansing oil for a while but i switched to Clinique cleansing balm which works well. great review Kim!

I've never used a cleansing oil but this sounds lovely Kim!

Perfect for you to use right now too as you go into the cooler weather, something nice and moisturising will come in handy! :)

I should give this a go. Although I do prefer cleansing water, I'm currently using the Garnier cleansing oil which I do love. And this one with the nice smell sounds really good:) Great review as always, Kim.

Miss Val's Creations said...

This sounds like a great product. I love things that foam up. :)

Cee said...

I use a face oil once daily, but I've never tried oils as a cleanser. The idea of the DHC version that foams when water is involved sounds wonderful! I don't usually double cleanse, but there's nothing I won't try once, so I won't rule out giving this cleansing oil a go in the future.

I always do oil cleansing! It cleans my skin better and doubles as a moisturizer before bed. Win, win. :)

Lorena said...

For me its the cleansing water - oil I have used but mostly for eye make up removal.
I tend to shy away from oily products as I have oily hair and skin ;)

Emma Henderson said...

I'm really enjoying using Murad skincare at the moment too. This sounds like a lovely oil - unfortunately I can't use oil products on my face at the moment as I have eyelash extensions at the mo!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Ohhh, this is very different then as it doesn't foam up. I am currently alternating between L'Oreal and Palmer's cleansing oil and both are sooooo good to my skin. Another one to be added into my to-try list. Great review, Kim!

I've only used a cleansing oil that foamed up, but this one sounds worth a shot too. There actually aren't that many cleansing oils that I've tried, but I'm so glad that more and more brands are offering them.

I know now what I'm going to ask for Christmas this year! So of these products. Thanks for all of your product reviews.
Love all of your visits too!
Enjoy the rest of the week.

I have dry skin and I think I would probably love this cleansing oil. And it's good to know that the scent isn't offending at all. I'm not big on scented products either.

I've been hearing so many things about cleaning oils lately! This one sounds nice! Btw, thanks Kim for all your kindness! I really appreciate it! I'll keep you posted on how things are going in South Carolina etc!

Dale Janée said...

I have heard so much about cleansing oils but I've always been scared because I had acne when I was a teen and feel like it would break me out. Although now my skin does get dry especially in the winter so I'd give this a try since you mentioned that - plus it's Murad which I've always had good luck using on my skin.

Nice post!

Margo @ PrettyPanda said...

Great post Kim!! I still need to try an actual cleansing oil and this one looks great for what I need!

Ashley said...

I've never tried a cleansing oil before Kim! This sounds nice and I can see how it would be great for the colder months since it's so moisturizing!

So nice to read more about this! It sounds usefu, especially for winter. It may help as my skin seems very dry lately. Thanks for an honest review!

I've never tried a cleansing oil because I feel like it would be too greasy. This would be heavenly for winter though, definitely not summer as you suggested. I'm not so sure I'd try an oil cleanser, even with such a glowing review!

I am a huge supporter of the OCM and oil cleansers. Ever since switching to oil cleansers my skin has been in its best shape. I will have to try this one. Thanks for the review.

Carmen Varner said...

If it smells like a spring breeze it smells like perfection to me. This looks & sounds amazing. I really like the way it blends in. :]

I have super dry skin. I used this Mary Kay cleanser moisturizing scrub, and it made my skin too oily after awhile...
Great review/tip!

Definitely a great product for Dry Skin, Kim! I would prefer using it for the eyes and lips since it has the perfect caring consistence to leave those sensitive areas smooth while not drying them out. Happy Friday, Kim!

Dear Kim, I both love cleansing oil and micellar water (I use Bioderma too). Oil is always milder with sensitive skin, but when I'm lazy I use micellar water. I'm glad you found sweet the cleansing oil from Murad. There are not that many brands that feature cleansing oils (or at least I don't know that many lol). I wish you a super sweet weekend dear!

My skin prefers oil cleansers...even cleaning milk sometimes leaves my skin dry and water based cleaners seem to be an absolute no for my combination skin. Anyhow, how nice that this oily product leaves your skin perfectly moisturized. I know what you mean when you say you think it is some suitable for colder months...during hotter months and sunny and warm weather we always need to adjust our make up routine. If we use a lot of sun protection cream (and they are almost always oily) we need less oil in our routine, so that's additional reason for the change of beauty routine.

So wonderful that this product also has a lovely frangrance...how wonderful!

I've never used this item before, but I can totally get what you mean by it being best used in the winter on dry skin. The oil base might be too much for those oily skin folks.

I think cleansing oils are awesome! They effectively remove heavy and waterproof makeup. I tend to use a cleansing oil year round on those days when I am wearing a ton of makeup lol!

I love the concept of it smelling like a 'Spring Breeze' - what beautiful imagery! I'm yet to try a cleansing oil, though I've always been quite intrigued by them :)
