Oil Cleansers

Oil cleansing is an effective way to emulsify makeup, dirt and debris while deeply moisturizing your skin.  Recently made popular by the influx of Korean beauty everything on the market, oil cleansing has been around for ages.  I love starting my evening routine with an oil cleanser pre-cleanse.  I follow with a second cleanse using a gel cleanser and a cleansing device, such as a Clarisonic or a Foreo Luna (I promise to write a blog post on why you should not use a rotary brush on your face. Till then, just don't do it.).  On mornings where I'm needing more moisture, I'll start my day off with an oil cleanse.

Oil cleansers are great for all skin types, even oily!  Since like treats like, using an oil on oily skin will help reduce the skins natural oil production.  You're more than welcome to follow it up with a gel cleanser. I personally love using oil cleansers as make-up removers.  Simply massage oil onto dry skin, really working it in then remove with a warm wash cloth or kojac sponge.


 

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Cleansing Oil

Organic, Mass $$

I love anti-aging products. I love oil cleansers.  But, what I love more than both is an anti-aging oil cleanser!  This cleanser dissolves make-up, hydrates the skin, clear impurities AND fights free radicals. I'll take 10!  To top it all off, it washes away without lingering on the skin. Love!

This oil is made with a base of sunflower and grape seed oils and blended with Juice's organic lemon and apple fruit acids to brighten and protect with vitamin C and resveratrol. 

Great for all skin types. Yes, even oily skin.

Kari Gran Cleansing Oil

Organic, Specialty $

I love the straightforwardness and simplicity of this cleanser. Sometimes five ingredients is all you need.  Together these rich oils deeply cleanse and soften the skin while balancing oil production.

While any skin type could use this cleanser, I recommend it most for normal, dry, mature or sensitive skin.

Ingredients:

Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil Organic Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil Organic Lavandula Hybrida (Lavender) Oil Tocopherol (Non-GMO Vitamin E from Sunflower)

The pH-balanced formula is a blend of synergistic natural ingredients, including Castor Oil, a soothing cleanser and powerful detoxifier, nutrient-dense Argan Oil and antioxidant Camellia Seed Oil. It leaves your skin cleansed, soft and moisturized. This cleanser has a pH range of 4.7-5.7.
