DHC Olive Virgin Oil Swabs

Every so often I come across a product and wonder why on earth I hadn't thought of trying it, inventing it or even thinking of it when in need. So when I came across the DHC Olive Oil Swabs, it was one of those 'OMG this is genius, why did I not think of this' moments and a complete life changer all in one.

DHC, which stands for "Daigaku Honyaku Center, are a Japans No. 1 direct skincare company and their Cleansing Oil is a product most people are possibly more familiar with. The vision behind DHC is rooted in the beneficial properties of virgin olive oil, Flor de Aceite – the finest quality, extracted from organic Spanish olives. The entire skincare range was founded on the beneficial properties of olive oil. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, it is a highly effective component in neutralising damaging free radicals. Olive oil also helps balance your skin's moisture. With its unique ability to mix with water, our olive oil helps moisturise without clogging pores. Oxidised oils cause blackheads and a host of other problems, but because olive oil has a naturally lower oxidation rate than your skin's natural oils, it is a perfect barrier to protect skin from irritants.


Back to the product in questions and yes, a cotton bud soaked in Olive Oil is what I am talking about and if you have never seen them, I urge you to look for them because honestly, like dry shampoo, I am not sure how I managed without them until now.

Each swab or cotton bud if you prefer, is individually wrapped to ensure it remains hygienic and clean and so that the olive oil doesn't leak on anything. 

Opening the wrapper, the buds are moist but not dripping in oil and they have a multitude of used and can be used for cleansing delicate areas, soothing cuticles, erasing eye makeup mishaps especially when your mascara runs, if you smudge any make-up, these are so delicate they can erase it and you don't have to do your whole face again - how amazing right?  What's more is each box contains 50 swabs and they cost just £5.50, so worth every penny as far as I am concerned.

Have you tried any products from DHC?

  1. What a genius idea! I am always having problems with mascara and eyeliner smudging. Will be great for lip liner too.

  2. These sound like such a good idea, esp for smudged make up. I have a lot of ear piercings so they would be good for cleaning around them! x

  11. Fab that they've made into something you can buy. I have actually already done this myself at home. Most oils are the best for make up remover.

  20. i used to use olive oil for removing my makeup at night but was so sore if it got in the eye. i switched to coconut oil and never looked back - much nicer to the skin

  22. Never thought of these before but they do sound like a good idea. Do you think these will be very easy to make at home too?

  23. These look like they'd be great for travelling but I wouldn't buy them for day to day use, as I do tend to just pop a bit of cleansing oil on a cotton bud if I need to neaten up my make-up :)
