Speed Review: Time Bomb Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil



Time Bomb is never a brand which immediately springs to mind when it comes to shopping for beauty products but I've actually been pretty pleased with those items that I have tried from the company. Regular readers will know that I love using cleansing oils so I was excited to see that Time Bomb had introduced one, Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil.

Time Bomb describe Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil as perfect for nighttime use as it delicately removes makeup, even around the eyes and the lightweight oil-based formula gently cleanses skin dissolving dirt & grime, washing off for calm and pristine clean skin. They state that it is ideal for all skin types. It contains a blend of grape seed, sunflower and safflower oils along with coconut oil, which they say is known for its powerful antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Clearly, Time Bomb are tapping into the trend towards coconut oil and whilst I personally avoid using pure coconut oil on my face because of fears that the rich formula will clog my acne-prone skin, I was willing to give Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil a go thanks to it being a blended product.

The packaging is simple but I quite liked the design and was happy to have it on display in my bathroom. I appreciated the convenience of the pump dispenser (just a few pumps provided sufficient product to cover my entire face) but I'd have preferred a transparent bottle to enable me to see how much of the cleansing oil was remaining.

As the name suggests, Time Bomb Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil has a coconut fragrance. If you don't like the scent of coconuts then this product won't be for you but personally, I liked it and it made me think of tropical holidays.

The cleansing oil has a lightweight silky texture and as tends to be the case with cleansing oils, lent itself well to facial massage.

It is a clear oil which easily emulsified on contact with water, turning to a lightweight milk which was easy to rinse away. I found that it effectively cleansed my skin although I did need to use a separate eye makeup remover to get rid of traces of stubborn mascara (I don't wear waterproof mascara).

At £25 for 175ml, I do feel that Time Bomb Peace & Quiet Coconut Cleansing Oil is a pricey option and is a tad overpriced for the quantity but that said, I did enjoy using it.
