Quick Review: Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil + AOL Beauty Awards

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil Review | The Beauty Vanity

So I have some exciting news to share!

I got asked to be one of the judges for the AOL Beauty Awards!  No big deal right?  (I hope you can sense the sarcasm.)

I am one of 20 bloggers and for a few weeks, we tested out a bunch of beauty products so that we can collectively tell you what we’re obsessing over.

I’m not going to lie, there were some winners and some duds.  But one product that I absolutely fell in love with and have been using for over a month now is the Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil.  It’s been especially useful after my last microdermabrasion when I needed a cleanser that was gentle and moisturizing.

If you wear a full face of makeup like me, cleansing oils are amazing at breaking down all your makeup.  I double cleanse every night to make sure I get every bit of makeup off and this is the first step in my night time skin care routine.  I’ve been reading reviews of the product and some mentioned that it didn’t remove all their makeup.  Just make sure to double cleanse!  I know it’s a pain but, many estheticians recommend that you do.

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil


In case you’ve never used a cleansing oil, you warm it up with your dry hands and apply on your dry face.  Massage over your face to break down the makeup.  Once you add water, it turns into a milky liquid.  Rinse completely.

  • How exciting of an opportunity for you!! And Tatcha is definitely a brand that I’ve fallen in love with in the past year, the cleansing oil being one of them. I was hesitant with the price at first too so I ended up getting the travel size first. I clearly fell in love with it but am using up some other face cleansers before I purchase the full size. I’m a firm double cleanser too and oils and balms just make it all the more easier!
