Review Bybi Beauty Swipe Clean - Facial Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover

Review Bybi Beauty Swipe Clean Facial Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover
Bybi Beauty popularity seems to on the rise so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and ordered their Swipe Clean facial cleansing oil. I've also had my eye on their Booster oils but they seem hugely popular and sold out whenever pay day arrives.

The brand was founded in 2017 by Elsie and Dominika and BYBI stands for By Beauty Insiders.

I adore cleansing oils and was in the mood to switch things up and trial something different. I was disappointed to learn that the newly launched Pai Rosehip Cleansing Oil contains essential oil allergens however Bybi Beauty Swipe Clean is the perfect alternative (for me at least) as it's fragrance free. It works on the same principal as Pai in that adding water to the cleanser emulsifies the formulation so it's easier to wash away. If an oil cleansers ever left you with an oily residue that you disliked then this is the perfect solution.

Bybi Beauty certainly has shelf appeal with brightly coloured packaging, the pink box and yellow bottle certainly feel cheery but I can't let that suck me in, I'm here to review the product inside. The oil feels nice and light on my skin, It's easy to massage across the face and wipe clean with a damp cloth. I'm not one for splashing water across my face as I find it drying. I can say with confidence that this cleanser lives up to the expectation of easier removal with no oily or sticky residue. The formulation is simple enough and alongside my favourite ingredient of plum kernel you will find moringa, papaya, olive, sunflower, carrot, calendula, jojoba, grapeseed and sesame. I'm happy to report that it removes dirt (I wear minimal makeup) and leaves my skin feeling soft. However, with all this praise there is a minor downside for me, it's personal taste but the aroma doesn't sit well with me and I'm absolutely trying to push through that. I adore plum kernel for its marzipan scent but there is another note in this product which for me taints the aroma. I can't put my finger on what ingredient causes it. Of course your sense of smell might pitch it completely differently and that's what makes beauty products so interesting.

My final verdict is Bybi Beauty Swipe Clean is a great cleanser at a good price point in comparison to the competition. I don't think I will repurchase as the scent isn't hitting the spot for me and I've other favourites that suit me better when it comes to aroma. I might never dispose of the empty bottle as I love the packaging.
