DHC Skincare Review

A couple weeks ago, I reviewed some makeup items by DHC. Today I will be reviewing three of their skincare items including their famous Deep Cleansing Oil.



Just as a refresher, DHC is a brand from Japan and is now expanding to Canada. You can find their products on Amazon.ca and some skincare products in T&T. If you are from the US or the UK, you can order directly off their website. So let's get on with the review!

Olive Body Butter $19

This product claims to seals in moisture, envelops skin in a rich veil of hydration, and features 7 natural botanicals for ultra softness: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. Skin immediately feels touchably soft. 

I found the product to have a thick consistency similar to The Body Shop body butters. Once applied to your skin it melts and rubs in very easily. I didn't find any greasiness after using this and there's a nice subtle scent. I thought it was olives to begin with but I realized after reading online it was apple and rose HAHA! My nose isn't that strong I guess.

4/5 I love that the first five ingredients contain shea butter and cocoa butter. The packaging is adorable and it does what it claims! But I'm deducting a point as the price is a bit on the high side at $19/100mL but overall I really enjoyed this.


Virgin Olive Oil $42


This product claims to seals in moisture, envelops skin in a rich veil of hydration, and features 7 natural botanicals for ultra softness: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. Skin immediately feels touchably soft. 

I'm usually not a huge fan of facial oils as I don't like that my hands will also be greasy after applying. I've tried my fair share including Josie Maran, Tarte, and the Boscia oils. None of them have been it for me. There's almost no scent to this product and one pump is enough for the whole face. It feels moisturizing but doesn't feel like it sinks in completely, similar to my other experiences.

It's both a good thing and a bad thing that the ingredient list only features one item: olive oil. Although it's great that it's natural, people online are also saying it's no different than olive oil from the drugstore.

2/5 I'm personally not a huge fan of oils and this one also left my palms a bit greasy. Nothing amazing happened and at $42 I have many other options I'd prefer.

Deep Cleansing Oil $28


This product claims to remove all traces of dirt and makeup while nourshing your skin with antioxidant rich oilve oil. It will leave your skin soft and nurtured, never dry or greasy.

There's a reason that this product is famous. It is AMAZING! This really takes off all your makeup but what I love most is that it rinses off so cleanly!! I've used a number of facial oils before. They've also done a good job at taking off makeup but it's usually a chore to wash it off.

This product feels a bit heavy when you first apply it and are trying to wash off your makeup. But it takes off mascara, eyeliner brilliantly. And then when you wash it off, there is no residue what so ever! This is now my FAVORITE product for taking off a full face of makeup.

5/5 Super effective, easy to use! I really recommend you to try out this product if you are looking for a product to take off all your make up.

A very sad attempt at trying to show the products. L to R: Olive Body Butter, Virgin Olive Oil, Deep Cleansing Oil.

What are your thoughts on facial oils? Also, what are your favorite oils to take off your makeup?
