Review: Siskyn Skincare Oils Camellia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil - fragrance free

Review Siskyn Skincare Oils Camellia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil

I was introduced to Siskyn Skincare Oils through the Free From Skincare Awards as their Elixir Rosehip & Tamanu Scars & Stretchmark Body Oil (fragrance free) scooped a Gold Award. Siskyn is a natural and vegan brand using only botanical oils and avoiding synthetic fillers like petrochemicals, dyes, silicones, artificial fragrance and preservatives.

The Camellia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil was shortlisted in its category and the product I had my eye one. Fragrance free cleansing oils can sometimes be a little tricky to locate and whilst I have firm favourites I always desire to find alternatives. This Siskyn cleanser contains a lovely blend of oil ingredients – castor, safflower, avocado, olive, sunflower, jojoba, rosehip and camellia. It’s suitable for all skin types whether you’re oily or dry, mature or sensitive. A blend without essential oils allows it to be safely used around the eye which is important to those who wish to remove makeup.

If you’re been a long time follower of my site you will know that I always celebrate the use of oils. As someone who is sensitive and eczema prone I find them hugely beneficial for managing my skin. Cleansing Oils allow me to remove dirt and grime without too much water which for me only exasperates dryness. I would describe Siskyn as a luxury brand which is reflected in their packaging and prices. The glass bottle is heavy, comes in an outer box and a quality cleansing cloth is provided. My only criticism is sometimes I struggle with the pump. I’m not sure if it’s the design or my clumsiness but it doesn’t always dispense with ease. Putting this aside I can’t fault the product as it does exactly as I would hope. I can cleanse without fear of irritation and removal is straight forward without leaving my skin feeling stripped or without a feeling of excess greasy residue.

Siskyn ticks several boxes for me so I am without hesitation to recommend them to you. If you are unsure whether to invest your pennies then you could always buy the try me size/travel kits which are generous and offer you ample product to test.

Update: Since publishing Siskyn have told me they have changed the pumps so you shouldn't have the same problems as me :)
