TROPIKA Face Cleansing Oil

Cleansing is the most important part of the entire skincare routine. It doesn't matter how good or expensive your skincare is, if the skin is not properly cleansed and prepped, it won't absorb the products you apply. So, I'm very particular in my cleansing products and always do a double-cleanse to make sure I don't leave any impurities behind.

Some time ago, I received the Tropika Face Cleansing Oil, an oil-based cleanser using virgin coconut oil.

Tropika is a family founded business with the philosophy and belief of:

Natural - Use high quality and natural ingredients of mature kernel of coconuts. With ingredients in their most natural forms, the products are safe, taste and look natural and retain high nutritional values.

Healthy - Enthusiastically engaged with R&D centres to constantly improve the products' quality and develop new ones.

Effective - The result is generally effective as the products are made from natural ingredients. They pride themselves with the effectiveness of the products.

The cleansing oil is formulated using virgin coconut oil, licorice root extract and Vitamin E that create 3-in-1 function to remove make up, cleanse and moisturize the skin for a fresher and supple skin. Let's take a look how these ingredients work:

Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) - Rich in saturated fats which makes it a great natural moisturizer. The oil contains Lauric Acid, which has antimicrobial and disinfectant properties, helping to keep pores clean and prevent blemishes.

Licorice Extract - Contains an active compound called glabridin which helps to diminish the appearance of dark under eye circles, discoloration and age spots. It is suitable for sensitive skin and traditionally used for skin brightening to get back that natural skin tone.

Vitamin E - Conditions the skin, great for diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and spots.

Olive Oil Esters - Functions as an additional cleansing agent and it is safe to be used around the eyes. It is suitable for oil and sensitive skin as it is less likely to leave skin greasy as compared to common, non-esterified oils.  It also offers anti-inflammatory properties and can mimic our natural sebum, which slow down oil production while locking in the moisture.

The cleansing oil comes in a silver-white plastic bottle, simple and nice. However, I would prefer to be able to see the content so I can gauge how much I've used up the product. With this, I probably need to guess by feeling the weight of the bottle.

How to Use:
1. Apply onto dry skin.
2. Massage in circulation.
3. Add a little water to create a milky emulsion and continue to massage to remove every trace of makeup and dirt.
4. Rinse thoroughly with water.

I did a test on different makeup using the cleansing oil.

I used 2 pumps of the cleansing oil. As you can see, it is colourless and has a runny texture.

After massaging the cleansing oil in circular motion.

I didn't manage to take photos after it turned in milky emulsion. But I'm quite surprised that the cleansing oil actually managed to remove all the makeup. It took a little bit of extra massage to remove the kajal, but I like the end results. Also, my skin doesn't feel dry after using it. Furthermore, the price of the Tropika Face Cleansing Oil is very affordable.
