Cold Pressed Olive Oil Foaming Cleanser
Bliss’ Cold Pressed Olive Oil Foaming Cleanser offers a convenient, portable way to take an oil cleanser on the road without worrying about leaks or spills. It isn’t a perfect product, but there’s still plenty to like about it.
As the name implies, this cleanser is a swivel-up stick that you apply directly to your face. You simply rub it around your face (on either dry or damp skin), then rinse it off or towel it off with a soft, wet washcloth. It does a good job of removing dirt, oil, and makeup (even longwearing makeup), thanks to its high concentration of non-fragrant olive oil.
Cold Pressed Olive Oil Foaming Cleanser is best for those with normal to dry skin, though just to be clear, it doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind when rinsed off; skin simply feels softer and smoother.
The rest of the ingredients are mainly preservatives, hydrators, and vitamin E, but fragrant geranium oil is also present. It’s not as much of a concern for irritation because it’s rinsed from skin, but it’s still something to consider, especially if you have sensitive skin or want to use this around your eyes.
Otherwise, it’s a solid solution for those who like oil cleansers, but don’t like the potential mess of traveling with them.
- Does a good job removing dirt, oil, and makeup.
- Rinses cleanly with no greasy residue.
- Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother.
- Convenient packaging for an oil cleanser.
- Contains fragrant geranium oil, which can irritate skin.
This vitamin-rich cleansing stick, made with more than 40% olive oil, provides a powerful yet gentle cleanse. It glides on and lathers up to melt away makeup and residue.
The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.
Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Bliss's iconic white with splashes of color packaging.
Bliss's biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Bliss's offerings you just have to know where to look.
