My take on the product


The Body Shop Silky Cleansing Oil comes in a transparent plastic bottle packaging with a pump dispenser. I like the packaging – it looks nice in my bathroom cabinet, feels quite sturdy and is hygienic as well. The oil has a light texture and a mild herbaceous scent which I find quite soothing and calming. I take about 1 pump of the oil and smooth it all over the cheeks and skin and another pump only for the eyes. Compared to the other oils I have used in the past, I found the TBS one to a little milder and gentler but fairly effective. I apply the oil directly on dry skin, massage with for a minute and then emulsify it by massaging again with a few drop of water. The oil turns a little milky upon emulsification and can be rinsed off. It removes face makeup quite quickly but for waterproof mascara, it takes a little more time to dislodge all the product from my lashes.

I haven’t had any adverse reaction from the product (I have oily, acne prone skin) and it makes my skin feel soft and smooth. The only thing I do not like about the product is that it leaves a residue on my face. You have to either use a washcloth/flannel to wipe the face after rinsing the emulsified oil or follow up with a face wash. Since my skin breaks out easily and I don’t like the feeling of residue on my face, I follow it up with a gentle foaming cleanser.


Overall, I liked it but I would not repurchase this because there are loads of other products in the market that I want to try and I wasn’t bowled over by the product. If you’re looking for a gentle, effective cleansing oil, this would be a good one to try. I think it’ll work well for all skin types especially for people with sensitive skin. The   ml bottle has lasted me over 3 months (I use it about 4-5 days a week) which is pretty good value for money. Since more budget options like DHC are not available in India, TBS Silky Cleansing Oil is fairly affordable option compared to MAC, Clinique, Shiseido and Bobbi Brown Cleanse Off Oils.

    I use Body Shop Shower gel- Olive and is great. The best thing about the product is that it lasts for long time as just a single pump is enough for one shower.

    P.S. It doesn’t leave a residue when you rinse off the oil with warm water.

I just got that cleansing butter like yesterday 🙁 and now i so want this as well !!! could you do a comparison between the two? or else plz let me know your opinion straightaway :-p which one between the two u think is a better investment of money?

    • September 21, 2014 / 1:41 pm

      Hi, sorry I haven't tried the balm from TBS. I prefer oils to balms as they are a little lighter. What do you think of the balm so far?
