A cleansing oil removes oil-based matter – sebum, dirt, pollution, water-resistant makeup, and stubborn sunscreen.
A cleansing oil is an excellent way to cleanse oily skin and control blackheads, breakouts, and other congestion. This is because oil attracts oil. So if you have acne do not be afraid to double cleanse it’s key to your skincare routine.
A very gentle & thorough cleansing day & night is the foundation of effective skincare. Moisturizing serums and creams are absorbed 10x better.

- Prepare. Either mix your oils together ahead of time, or you can use just 1 type of oil.
- Cleanse. Pour the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply gently all over your dry face. Massage firmly, but gently, always moving upwards. Massage for 2 minutes.
- Rinse. Rinse off your face with warm water & slowly begin to wipe off with a wet warm washcloth. Rinse your washcloth and repeat until you’ve wiped all the oil off your skin.
After the oil cleanse you can then go into your facial cleanser of your choice.
Below oils are great to use as the first step in your double cleanse routine. I personally love the pre cleanse by Dermalogica because it has rice bran in it along with some other amazing ingredients.
