For someone who has oily skin, the idea of putting something on my face with the word “hair” in the name was a custom that for years eluded me. Face oils, cleaning oils — you name it, it didn’t go past my skin anywhere. However, the idea of kick-starting your routine with a gets-it-off oil has gone from a niche K-beauty skin-care phase to full-on mainstream, thanks to a little thing called double cleansing. (And, yes, it’s something everybody should get into, regardless of skin type.)
Pai Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil
If you like Pai’s Rosehip Oil like we do (which is a lot), you’ll enjoy their new cleaning oil a lot. The Pai Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil is made from a mixture of nourishing oils — olive, sunflower, and castor — along with vitamin E and rosehip fruit extract, to gently buff off the day’s makeup, dirt, and debris without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
Belif Cleansing Gel Oil Enriched
Belif’s Cleaning Gel Oil Enriched features an creative, gel-like texture which makes it an absolute dream for anyone looking for a lightweight feeling. Alternatively, olive and macadamia oils leave skin smooth and supple.
Boscia MakeUp BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil
Soothe any discomfort while ridding your skin of impurities with willowherb-, jojoba-, and geranium-infused oil from Boscia at the same time, which improves sebum development and feels like a spa treatment.
Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils
You can still use coconut oil to melt off makeup in its raw form in your routine, but may we suggest stepping it up with Burt’s Bees Cleaning Oil? To offer an extremely hydrating cleaning experience, the elixir mixes coconut oil with argan oil.
Dermalogica’s PreCleanse no-frills has everything you’d like from cleaning oil. It whisks away rice bran dirt, maquillage, and residual product, while olive and vitamin E oils provide long-term benefits such as moisture preservation and environmental safety.
Caudalie Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil
One pump from Caudalie’s Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil is enough after a long day to wash off any piece of makeup, but it’s the peptide and grape seed oil mix that provides long-term hydration benefits.
Dior Hydra Life Oil to Milk Makeup Removing Cleanser
Once it comes into contact with mud, Dior’s Hydra Life Oil to Milk Makeup Removing Cleanser emulsifies into a rich milk and gently extracts makeup without a single pull. (Moreover, it’s a sunny bottle that immediately gives a chic boost to any bathroom cabinet.)
La Mer the Cleansing Oil
Want the La Mer Cleansing Oil throughout your lifetime? Indeed. Evidently. Okay, maybe not. We would be lying, though, if we said the marine broth-infused formula (which nourishes skin) and over-luxury packaging didn’t make us look forward to our skin-care routine at night.
