Hands up if you’re busy? Morning routine consists of whipping around the house like a crazy woman doing a million things at once? Time alone in the bathroom a long-ago, wistful memory?
Story of your life, right? We hear you.
As much as we adore the Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm, it’s not always the best choice for when you are in a hurry (yes, we do listen to every teeny tiny bit of feedback you send in!).
We thought about changing the Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm formula, but there are so many people who would go bananas at us if we up and changed the Cloud 9, so instead we created the 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil :)
The 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil has magical powers that allow it to cleanse using the oil cleansing method, but rinse off easily [amazed gasp!]. When mixed with water it turns milky and washes away effortlessly, taking all of the makeup, excess oil, and daily grime with it.
It’s lighter and a bit easier to use than the Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm, and has the massive bonus of being super-duper shower friendly too.
The 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil ticks all of our other boxes as well – it’s 100% natural, contains 84% certified organic ingredients, Australian Made, Vegan and Cruelty Free.
But what's the oil cleansing method?
Glad you asked. You may not realise but over-washing (and the subsequent drying) of your skin can trigger big problems. Oily skin becomes oiler increasing breakouts and dry skin becomes drier making it look older and more susceptible to other issues. So you need a way of cleansing that's gentle to your skin and doesn't strip away its natural oils (sebum).
That's why we turn to the oil cleansing method. It works because oils dissolve oils. The 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil is massaged into your skin and it melts away all of the oily impurities that have built up - like dirt, grime, oxidised sebum (blackheads), and makeup. Then with a bit of special skincare magic, you can wash the oil away leaving behind soft and hydrated skin.
This means there's no need for soaps, gel cleansers or foaming cleansers that can leave your skin feeling dry and tight. Hooray!
“How did you do it!?” we hear you ask.
Well … Firstly we had to go to Hogwarts School of Wizardry and graduate the potions class. Oh wait. That’s Harry Potter. Aaron does wear glasses though, so it’s an easy mistake to make. ;)
There was no real magic involved but the 3 Cheers cleansing oil is pretty special because it's what we call "self emulsifying". Which is scientific magic!
Here’s how it happens:
- You smooth luscious oil over your face and neck, dissolving dirt, grime and makeup
- Magic … You wet your face and as the oil mixes with water it turns creamy (it emulsifies, meaning the water and oil stick to each other)
- You effortlessly wash away the creamy emulsion leaving your skin feeling fresh and revitalised.
So it’s just as easy to use as a water-based gel or foaming cleanser except it doesn’t upset your acid mantle by stripping your skin of its natural oils. Instead of being left with squeaky, dry, tight skin you are left with clean, hydrated and soft skin.
Don't take our word for it - here's what you've had to say
"It cleaned skin well without drying...as expected! Had uplifting zesty scents as well. The amber bottle will also help protect the product from oxidising." -June
"Very gentle and non drying. My skin still looked moisturised even before is applied my moisturiser." - Bec
"I loved how effortlessly it removed make up especially eye make up. It was great to use in the shower, definitely easier then cloud9 cleansing balm.I also like how long it lasts - I have been using it everyday since I received it and there is still more in the bottle! I find that the cloud9 gets used up more quickly. I manage to get in the shower without getting my hands wet and so I rub it on my face with no water and after add water and I find it rinses off very quickly and easily." - Marinda
"My skin on my face after use was soft and felt clean. After a week of use in the in shower on my chest my chest became clear, ridding the acne. It does not leave my skin feeling dry and tight like other cleaners. But leaving my skin soft and refreshed." - Kimberly
"It smelled yummy and worked really well. It left my skin feeling soft. It is super easy to use. I have it near the sink so I put it on just before stepping into the shower." - Kristy
"The cleansing oil left my skin feeling really soft and refreshed. My skin wasn't too oily or dry after using it, but beautifully cleansed." - Jacqueline
"Ii don't wear makeup often - but did attend a fancy dress party that required a lot of slap - I used this as an opportunity to try the three wishes out for makeup removal - it even removed the 'long-wearing' eye liner i had on - very gently!" - Maddi
"Didn't irritate my eyes, felt lovely and moisturising - but most importantly, it washed off my skin super easily!" - Sylvia
“I love how it makes my skin feel afterwards, totally clean, but soft, silky and almost as if I had already used a moisturiser - that is the number one thing I like about it. When you are massaging it into your face and inhale the essential oils, the smell is gorgeous. I like how easily it rinses off when you add water to it - amazing! I was really surprised by that. It is super easy to use - pump into the hand and massage into the face. I like the pump on the bottle. I truly love this product!" - Madonna
