Nars Makeup Cleansing Oil review
Nars Makeup Cleansing Oil review
When I discovered that Nars, one of my favorite makeup brands, also had a skincare line I was very eager to try it. I decided to start from the basics and got the Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser, since I consider removing makeup the first step in skincare. Only later I realized that this isn't actually from their "Nars Skin" line of products, which explains a lot.

I'm positive everyone and their moms know about Nars as a brand (at least if you're sliiightly into makeup). Everything I've tried from them have been absolutely great, so I was very excited to try this.


Cuando descubrí que Nars, una de mis compañías favoritas de maquillaje, también tenían una línea de cuidado de la piel quise probarla casi al instante. Decidí empezar por lo básico, por lo que elegí el Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser, ya que el desmaquillarse lo considero el primer paso en la rutina de cuidado de la piel. Sólo después me di cuenta que en realidad éste no es de su línea "Nars Skin", lo que explica muchas cosas.

Seguro que todo el mundo conoce Nars como marca (aunque sólo os interese poquísimo el maquillaje). Todo lo que he probado de ellos me ha parecido increíble, así que estaba muy emocionada por probar esto.

Nars claims that this oil cleanser is "an advanced achievement in removing makeup and impurities". It also is supposed to deep cleanse pores and prepare skin for the next skincare step. They claim that this is unique to cleansing oils and that their exclusive technology "enables the product to be effective when applied with wet or dry hands". The brand also indicates to use two to three pumps to remove makeup from face.



Nars dice que éste aceite limpiador es un avanzado logro para eliminar maquillaje e impurezas. También se supone que limpia los poros en profundidad y prepara la piel para los siguientes pasos de la rutina. Explican que es único entre los aceites desmaquilladores y que su exclusiva tecnología permite que el producto sea efectivo ya se aplique con manos húmedas o secas. La marca también recomienda usar dos o tres "dispensadores" para eliminar el maquillaje de la cara.

Nars Makeup Cleansing Oil comes in a very sturdy and sleek plastic bottle of 200ml, the design following the aesthetic their makeup products have. The cap has the "security system" integrated, with just having to twist it following the arrow to open it and in the other way to close it. From all the cleansing oils I've used, I think this is by far the best system to ensure no-leaking. All the previous ones I've written about, like the Innisfree Olive Real Cleansing Oil or the Klairs Black Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil has a plastic "thing" that you had to remove and then put back on.


El Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser viene una botella de plástico duro de 200ml, el diseño siguiente el de la línea de maquillaje. El tapón lleva el sistema de seguridad incorporado; para abrirlo se gira el tapón para un lado y para cerrarlo, se gira hacia el otro. De todos los aceites limpiadores que he usado éste método es el que me parece mejor para asegurarse de que no se "escapa" nada. Los anteriores que he usado, como el Olive Real Cleansing Oil de Innisfree o el Black Gentle Deep Cleansing Oil de Klairs tienen una "pieza" que se quita y se pone.

The bottle comes in a black cupboard box that obviously follows the aesthetic of the makeup packaging. It was very well protected inside, with and additional "piece" of cupboard to offer more protection to the dispenser.


La botella viene en una caja de cartón que también sigue el diseño de los productos de maquillaje. Está muy bien protegido en el interior, con una "pieza" adicional de cartón para dar mayor protección al dispensador.

What probably surprised me the most of the Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser was the ingredient list. I don't even remember when was the last time I saw and ingredient list this short (and that I totally forgot to take photos off): mineral oil, PEG-8 glyceryl isosterate, cetyl ethylhexanoate, cyclopentasiloxane, isostearic acid, glyceryn, water, orange fruit extract, BHT, limonene.

I was always under the impression that mineral oil was bad, but a quick search on Paula's Choice website prove me wrong: mineral oil derives from petroleum (what I knew and why I thought it was bad) but turns out that after it's purified, it's very different from the original petroleum and isn't a source of contaminants. Mineral oil is also, according tot his website, very good at replenishing skin and moisturizing. Organizations in the USA and Britain classify mineral oil as "completely safe, soothing, non-sensitizing and perfectly beneficial for the skin". Although, I know some people suffer breakouts because of mineral oil. As with all "controversial" ingredients in skincare, ultimately is up to each person if they feel comfortable using it or not.


Lo que probablemente me sorprendió más del Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser fue la lista de ingredientes. No recuerdo cuando fue la última vez que vi una liste de ingredientes tan corta (y de la que me olvidé totalmente de sacar fotos): mineral oil, PEG-8 glyceryl isosterate, cetyl ethylhexanoate, cyclopentasiloxane, isostearic acid, glyceryn, water, orange fruit extract, BHT, limonene.

Siempre he pensado que el aceite mineral es malo, pero tras una lectura rápida en la web de Paula's Choice aprendí que no lo es: el aceite mineral se deriva del petróleo (lo que ya sabía y por lo que pensaba que era malo) pero resulta que después de purificarse, es muy diferente al original y no es fuente de contaminantes. El aceite mineral es también, según la web, muy bueno en ayudar a la hora de humectar la piel. Organizaciones en EEUU y Gran Bretaña clasifican el aceite mineral como "totalmente seguro, calmante, no sensibilizante y perfectamente beneficioso para la piel. A pesar de ello, sé que la piel de mucha gente reacciona ante él. Usar aceite mineral, igual que otros ingredientes "controvertidos", es elección de cada persona,

I always take these photos demonstration how makeup removers work before I use them on my face, so seeing how well a pump of the Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser removed the Tony Moly eyeliner and the Diorshow mascara I was more than excited to finally use it on my face.


Siempre saca ésta de "demostración" de cómo funcionan los desmaquilladores antes de usarlos en la cara,  así que viendo lo bien que "una pulsación" del Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser eliminaba el eyeliner de Tony Moly y la máscara Diorshow, estaba bastante contenta de poder usarlo por fin en la cara.

However, I don't think I've been more disappointed in a product for a long time. I mean, if this cost 7-10€, I would have thought it was a good product quality-price wise, but it's not the case. I needed 4 pump to fully remove makeup from my face, and sometimes even an additional 2 for my eyes, depending on the amount of eye makeup I would wear. It also didn't remove liquid lipsticks as much as previous oil cleansers did. But the worst thing is that, sometimes I had to let oil cleanser for some seconds on the eyelid/eyelashes to let it dissolve the makeup and it was unbearable how painful it was when even the smallest amount got in my eyes. I felt my eyes burning, first time it happened I thought I was having an allergic reaction to it and totally freaked out.


Sin embargo, creo que pocas veces me ha decepcionado un producto tanto. Quiero decir, si esto costara 7-10€ consideraría que tiene una buena relación calidad-precio, pero no es el caso. Necesitaba unos 4 "dispensadores" para eliminar del todo el maquillaje de la cara, a veces incluso otros 2 sólo para los ojos, dependiendo cuánto me hubiera maquillado. Tampoco eliminaba los labiales líquidos igual que los anteriores aceites. Pero lo peor es que, cuando a veces tenía que dejar el aceite unos segundos en las pestañas para que derritiera la máscara de pestañas y, obviamente, me entraba a los ojos era insoportable  el escozor, aunque fuera un mínima parte. Notaba los ojos quemándose, la primera vez que me pasó me alarmé bastante pensando que estaba teniendo una reacción alérgica.

The Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser is a very dry oil that I couldn't get used to. I always felt like it wasn't properly distributed on the face, and it barely emulsified, so I was also kind of paranoid that I wasn't removing all my makeup effectively.


El Nars Makeup Oil Cleanser es una aceite muy seco al que no me acostumbré. Siempre tenía la sensación de que no se distribuía bien por la cara, y a penas emulsionaba, por lo que también pensaba que no había eliminado el maquillaje del todo.

I don't think this is on sale anymore, and for what I've read online (mostly negative reviews on its performance) I know I'm not the only one who thinks that this isn't a product Nars should have sold.

I was send this by strawberry.net for review purposes and I wasn't economically compensated to make this post. All opinions are my own and weren't influenced by the company that sent me the product.


Creo que ya no se vende y, por lo que he leído online (opiniones negativas en su mayoría) sé que no soy la única que piensa que éste producto no es algo que Nars debiera vender.

Se me mandó de strawberry.net para dar mi opinión de ellos y no he sido recompensada económicamente por escribir ésta entrada. Todas las opiniones son propias y no han sido influenciadas por la compañía que me mandó el producto.
