Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil makeup remover

There’s something for everyone! Introducing Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil makeup remover : Cucumber for Hydrating Effects and Mulberry for Brightening Effects.

As our nation of diligent and tireless wheelhorses have different skin profiles, Neutrogena’s cleansing oils come in two new variants to cater to the populace.

The hydrating variant, Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil contains cucumber extract that helps hydrate skin and keep it soft. Cucumis sativus (cucumber juice) naturally has high water content (more than 95percent) and natural sugars that are potent humectants, making it the choice naturally derived moisturising agent.


The brightening variant, Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Cleansing Oil, contains mulberry extract, which is known to contain ascorbic acid and niacin. Ascorbic acid, commonly known as vitamin c, helps inhibit tyrosinase, a naturally occurring enzyme that catalyses production of pigment, Niacin (vitamin B), known to inhibit melanin transfer. Together, these help to reveal new skin cells and brighten the complexion.

My verdict :
As both products are suitable for my skin, I would say that I love both products and the only thing that varies for me is the scent of the product. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil smells refreshing with the gentle cucumber scent, whereas the Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Cleansing Oil smells of mulberry fruit scent.


Both have equally good cleansing power as I have tried on a waterproof eye liner as seen in my photo below. Cleaning off make up in just one step – I use it on dry skin then massage in the oil. Afterwhich, I wet the skin and massage again and rinse off. I love that it is easy to use and very convenient. Definitely a cleanser that I will bring during my holiday trip.

So as the packaging claims, it truly removes waterproof makeup 100%  🙂 I have tried and tested and the results are effective! Thumbs up!


Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil does hydrate my skin without stripping off the moisture in my skin, keeping my skin soft and supple.

My skin does feel brighter after using Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Cleansing oil. Perhaps that is why it said that it has brightening properties. Also, perhaps it lies in the ingredients and formula, as the oil transforms to a cleansing milk with a touch of water.

Both products do not strip off skin moisture and skin feels soft and supple. 🙂

Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Cleansing Oil and Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil are retailing at S$29.90 each and are available at Guardian and Watsons.
