First Cleanse Oil 150ml
This deep cleansing oil gently removes make-up and impurities without disturbing your natural oil balance. When a little water is added, it turns in to a milky cleanser for quick and easy removal. We have combined natures best, organic cleansing oils and infused them with organic chamomile, lavender and rosemary oil, for a truly soothing and therapeutic experience.
Why an oil cleanser? Oil is fantastic to cleanse with because oil attracts oil, dirt and grime, it also dissolves tough products like waterproof mascara and so you can use it as your first cleanse to remove make-up and then follow with a second cleanse or just use this cleanser twice in the evening.

Can it be used in the morning too? YES! One of the best things you can do for your face is give it a massage, it stimulates the removal of toxins and leaves the skin with a lovely glow and so it really wakes your skin up after it’s been squished in to your pillow all night. Becuase it turns milky with water there is no residue left on the skin so you won't be left looking oily.
Oil is bad for oily skin though? No, even oily skin needs moisture or it can become dehydrated. Flaky, oily skin is a nightmare. No matter what your skintype, your skin will love this cleanser!
More about the ingredients The main oil in this cleanser is Safflower oil, Pressed from the blooming plant's seeds, safflower oil contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that offers many benefits for skin. This acid is a key reason why safflower oil works so well in skin care products, Linoleic acid offers powerful dirt- and oil-removing abilities without aggravating the skin. Coconut and Avocado oils nourish the skin while Vitamin E is a fantastic, natural antioxidant. Essential oils of Lavender, Chamomile and Rosemary are soothing and purifying, the essential oil content is enough to offer the benefits from their natural properties but low enough to avoid causing irritation, particularly to sensitive eyes.
Please note - A small amount will need to be used before the pump can be inserted to ensure no product is lost.
To use - Apply a small amount to the palm of your hands and massage over the face and neck while your skin is dry. To remove eye make-up, close your eyes and spread gently over the eyes and eyelashes. Add water to transform the oil into a milky cleanser. Rinse with warm water or for best results, remove with a cotton face flannel.

Great product. I've had problem skin since I was a teenager (acne, uneven skin tone etc). I'm now 36 and have yet to find any products that work particularly well. I've been using this cleanser along with the ginseng toner and azulene moisturiser and I noticed an improvement in my skin, the feel, texture and quality, within just a few days. I use the double cleanse method as mentioned on this site and I massage the oil in for a good few mins each time. It doesn't have a strong smell which is nice and easily comes off when using a flannel or rinsing with no oily residue left behind. It seems good value for money considering how well is works. I'm hoping if I continue to use these products my skin will get even better.
So my usual “skincare routine” consisted of washing my face morning and evening and possibly rubbing a bit of cream on my face if it was close by, oh and always going to bed with a full face of makeup after a night out! I made the decision that it was time to start looking after my face a bit, I have very oily skin, large open pores that is prone to breakouts (even at the ripe old age of 37!). So after a lot of reading (read the cleanse article!) and messaging the Bravura teams I decided to order the the Glycolic Acid Set, Salicylic Acid Set and the Hyaluronic Acid Serum. When I first started using it all my mind was a bit blown!...alternating some products, every other night and using some every day was all a bit much but I soon got the hang of it and a few times I have thought “oh I can’t be bothered tonight” but done it anyway and I must say I really am seeing an improvement in my skin. My skin isn’t as oily, my pores seem smaller and if I do get a spot, it seems to go much quicker!.....winning! My skin is still not where I want it but I have only been using the products for a month and after 37 years of skin abuse I’m not expecting an overnight mirical made by god but this is a very good start! I have just reordered the Ginseng Toner as I had ran out and a Fist Cleanse (but I still have lots of this left from my sets and the free small trial bottle I received). I don’t really have much to compare this to as I have never stuck to a rountine for as long as I have this time. I did try with Clinique (and spent a small fortune trying!) but their products just didn’t agree with me! So far so good Bravura, I am definitely flying your flag!
The dosator that came alongside didnt work :( now had to open and pour oil from the bottle :( so unconfotable
Brilliant. Takes off all makeup and is effortless.
For years now I've been using a trusted and well known "hot cloth" cleanser - I thought it would be impossible for me to find something else which I would prefer. This cleanser is it. I purchased the sample size and after the very first use have resolved to buy the full size bottle once the sample size has finished. It leaves my skin so soft and without any dryness whatsoever and no left over residue (I get a little bit of a tight and dried out feeling with my normal cleanser) This has a lovely scent which is not overpowering and does not stay on the skin. I have combination skin and it's never felt better than after using this. I'm new to oil cleansing and there may well be other products that match this for performance - but once you factor in the absolutely beautiful packaging (yes - it DOES matter when it's on display in my bathroom!) and the reasonable price I can't find an equal match anywhere else. I also purchased the 15% Glycolic night cream and will post a view after using it a couple of times.
I am so impressed by this cleanser, I have oily and acne prone skin and I've always ran away from any product with the word 'oil' in it! But recently I've been reading about double cleansing and using oil for oily skin. I thought I'd give it a go, and I love it! It pulls out all of the dirt and oil and make up from the day. And then I use the oil free cleanser for the 2nd cleanse. 10/10 impressed. :-)
Very good cleansing oil for removing make up and only a little is needed. Doesn't sting eyes but unlike other oil cleansers I've used it leaves my skin a little dry which is odd.
For some one who has oily congested skin, I would always stay well away from this but after reading about it and the reviews, I decided to give it a go. I've only used it once but I love it! My skin felt amazing plus it smells great too! Great product!!
I use this for a 2nd cleanse or if I have set skin in the AM for my morning wash. This is just as good as a much more expensive oil I have used recently. It leaves no residue on the skin and no film over my eyes when removed with a flannel. Also it hasn't got a strong smell which I prefer to an overly perfumed product. Great product, bravo Bravura
I bought this beacause I suffer with a small amount of black heads and dry skin but most cleansers really dry my skin out. I love love love this product!! I love that's it's really natural and there are so many benefits from all the ingredients for my skin but most importantly the cleanser works amazing! It feels great to give my self a face massage, the smell is incredible, once I wash it off my skin isn't left oily in the slightest and it's really making my skin softer, plumper and helping fight the black heads which are nearly gone because oil attracts oil! love this product!
I really like Bravura London's products. However, this doesn't suit my skin! I've suffered from hormonal acne for about a year now and my skin is combination/oily. I found this product to be really drying despite my skin type and found that even after applying moisturiser my skin would be really flaky! It has a really nice consistency and smell, but just doesn't suit me.
I decided to treat myself to some bravura products as I have used the lactic acid exfoliator for a while now. I have dry/oily acne prone skin and find it had to find products that suit me. After reading the reviews I thought I'd give first cleanse oil a go. I have never used an oil cleanser before and was a bit sceptical at first but omg it's amazing!!! My skin doesn't feel tight or irritated the way it usually does after cleansing and my skin feels lovely and soft without feeling greasy. I cannot recommend this product enough if u have problem skin like me! Don't think I could us anything else now! Thank you bravura!!!!
Love this, removes all of your make up really quickly and best of all a little goes a long way I had my bottle 2 months+ before reordering! You will not be disappointed!
I use long lasting mineral foundation and love heavy eye make up. Previously i would spend 20mins taking my make up off and still my skin wouldn't feel clean! This oil is amazing...it was hard to get used to the texture of rubbing oil in but it pulled all the make up off. After rinsing this off my skin felt so soft and clean with no greasy residue at all! Another fab product by bravura.
When it comes to removing make up, this cleanser is second to none! It melts through make up and even removes the toughest waterproof mascara with ease. I was a little apprehensive using an oil, assuming it would leave the skin greasy, but I couldn't have been more wrong and am so glad I gave it a chance. When you massage it into your face it feels velvety and soft and becomes almost milky as you wash it off with a little warm water. It leaves you skin feeling very clean and soft. I always cleanse twice in the evening to make sure all my make up and any build up of dirt picked up throughout the day is removed but the product still lasts a long time. A little goes a long way! I couldn't recommend the First Cleanse Oil enough and now wouldn't be without it. Another amazing product from Bravura London.
This product is truly amazing when it comes to makeup removal, it's completely takes your makeup off and really fast. It's also great because as soon as use water it doesn't behave like an oil on your skin so washes off nicely. Lovely texture and smell, it feels really luxurious. I use this as a first cleanse and it's the best cleaner I have come across for makeup removal. I would also reccomend reading the cleansing advice that has been written, helped me out a lot!
I have tried many High street cleansers in the past and with quite sensitive skin I have found them all to be too harsh on my skin and actually make my skin break out a lot more and cause a lot more dry flaky skin, I saw Bravura on facebook and gave it a whirl Amanda was fantastic recommending products to help me and went way beyond what she had to with links to supplements to also help with hormonal acne. I bought my first order in June and I cleanse once in the morning and twice at night and I still have about a 1/4 of the bottle left at the start of September! this cleanser is truly like a mini facial it smells divine and I love getting in at night to cleanse!
Been using this for around 2 weeks and it really has helped my skin to be smooth, cleaner and look health! I cleanse for 1 min on each area of my face and neck and after it feels great.
I love this cleanser. The smell reminds me of products used in spas. Makes my skin really soft. I thought an oil would make my skin feel greasy but it doesn't
I think I have just found my holy grail cleanser! It is so nice to message this into my face and it turns to a lovely milk when washing off. It removed all my makeup and was so gentle on my skin. Im so happy I've found Bravura London- your products are amazing! Thank you x
Trust me, I have tried sooooo many oil cleansers. This is simply THE BEST !! It just does what it says, deep cleanse , totally removes all make up . I have super sensitive eyes and this does not irritate them at all. Which for me is amazing . No added fragrance Smell , just natural , simple nice smell. Apply , emulsify , rinse off ! All gone all clean LOVE IT. Thank you X
