What are cleansing oils?
These are cleansers to be used in the first step of double cleansing. They can be used alone, but if you have a full face on, i really recommend to double cleanse.
Cleansing oils is a really effective cleanser which helps not only to remove the makeup on your face but also to treat specific problems.
The most common oils to be used in are grape seed oil, almond oil, coconut oil, mineral oil, apricot oil, rice bran oil, jojoba oil and olive oil. I am not going to go in too deep but all oils have different benefits for the skin and works towards specific concerns. But that will have to be a completely different post.
When looking for a cleansing oil, you need to thick of what the problems are for your skin type. Dryness, acne prone, redness, aging, oily and so on. And then you need to find that specific oil cleanser that target those areas. If you want me to recommend some different oils for different skin types, just let me know and I will fix a post on that.
A great oil to start with can be Banila Co clean it Zero, it is an oil cleanser but it comes in a balm (a jar) and it is one of my favorite cleansers. They also have different versions of it, to target certain problems.
Oil cleansers are amazing to get rid of oily products that are already on your skin, for example foundation, concealer or sunscreen.
Oil solves oil and not water. If you are using a lot of makeup the oils will simply bind to the product and both makeup and oil is easily rinsed off.
Today's been a fun day but not a productive one. Tomorrow will consist of making an emergency doctors appointment as my eczema has gotten to its worlds worse the last couple of days and it's being torture. I need to get photos taken and wash my make up brushes ( I haven't used them for a whole week because I cba to wash them lol. Grim.) I also need to dye my hair too! Oh and go to work for the day. Wish me luck
Oh yeah and I uploaded this photo not to moan/rant but because these are some of my favourites.
this is my second @glossier milky jelly cleanser. i had been thinking about whether or not to repurchase just because there are so many i want to try, but here are the reasons why i did (tl;dr it's great at removing makeup, awesome texture, and gentle on skin):
it washes off my sunscreen. i wear a physical spf (@missha.official essence sun milk spf 50) or a tinted moisturizer (@lauramercier) and both are easily removed.
it also rinses off my everyday makeup. disclosure: i don't wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis. it's usually @glossier stretch concealer, a few swipes of boy brow or the @benefitcosmetics brow kit, patting on cloud paint or @narsissist powder blush, and maybe @bobbibrown setting powder.
it's gentle on my skin and easy on my eyes. it has poloxamer, used in contact lens solution, so removing eye makeup is a breeze. it's melted away liquid eyeliner, powder eyeshadow, and pencil eyeliner. i typically don't wear mascara and when i do, it's not waterproof so it melts away fairly easily using only this cleanser.
i've used cetaphil, cerave, and simple. i've broken out with cetaphil (maybe from the alcohol? who knows) and while cerave and simple absolutely get the job done, i want something that's exciting to use and smells great. milky jelly has such a fun texture and smells like roses!

This unique facial soap with lanoline and rose water cleanses the pores and gives you a fantastic complexion. It can also give you that instant "batak" feels after using. I also ise this soap & it can easily dried out your pimples and remove pimple scars. This is smaller compared to the first batch I sold since it's only 15 g.
