The Scoop About Cleansing Oil

For some reason, people are still rather afraid of putting oil on their faces. However, oil is the best way to cut through oil-based makeup. It's also a great way to get stubborn dirt off your face... and it can often get rid of excess oil on the face. Cleansing oil can remove stubborn makeup such as waterproof mascara. It also leaves the face feeling very smooth!

Recently, I've been trying to only use oil cleansers on my face because they are very gentle.  I find when the weather changes the chances of me breaking out are higher, so irritating my skin with harsh exfoliation or over drying would be a disaster.

I've tried two different cleansing oils... one from Tatcha and one from Dior.

The cleansing oil from Tatcha is called "One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil" and it's a much thicker product than the Dior one. I find that it removes waterproof makeup beautifully and a little goes a long way. The scent is not overpowering and the oil feels smooth. Upon rinsing the face off, one has beautifully soft skin. I really, really love this product.

I got the cleansing oil from Dior with my work discount. It feels like such a different product than the Tatcha oil! It's a lot thinner than the Tatcha oil, which can be a good or bad thing.  It comes in a pump and you need at least two to clean the face properly. It also is only good at removing face makeup and struggles with waterproof mascara. However, it rinses easier than the Tatcha oil.

In regards to picking a cleansing oil, one needs to consider the consistency and level of scent. The consistency is the biggest indicator of how much makeup the oil will get off by using it. Thin oils are not necessarily more drying than thicker oils.  I find the level of scent to be a very large factor in picking a cleansing oil, mostly because some people can't stand heavily scented products. 

I'm so glad I discovered cleansing oil... I've only been using it for about six months through various brands and such. It's also possible to use food-grade oils on your face for this purpose, though removing can be quite tricky! Maybe I'll make a post about that some day....
