Cleansing Oils are some of my favorite ways to remove my makeup; especially the waterproof kind. I’m going to give you a few reasons why you should use cleansing oils and the benefits of using them.
HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD TRY CLEANSING OILS
- Cleansing Oil Breaks Down Makeup:
Because it’s oil, it helps dissolve the makeup and makes it easier to remove without scrubbing too hard. This includes waterproof mascara!
- Moisturizes the skin while removing makeup from the pores:
It’s not only removing the makeup, but it’s conditioning your lashes and skin. You’ll remove it with a cleanser, but this helps your skin stay hydrated without stripping your skin of all oils.
- Stops your skin from being too oily and too dry:
If you have super oily skin, this can help with making too much natural oil on your face; if you’re dry, this can add a thin layer of moisture without looking greasy.
TYPES OF CLEANSING OIL
There are many versions of cleansing oils on the market or you can try some DIYs for a more natural and cost-effective approach. I’ve tried both and I don’t mind either method! My favorite types of oils are thinner in consistency and don’t leave behind a greasy feeling because I do like to use other skincare products. Here are a few of my favorite cleansing oils I keep in my rotation:
Dermalogica Precleanse: I’ve mentioned this in my skincare routine and it’s still a staple because it does a great job of removing all makeup with 1-2 pumps. It’s lightweight and doesn’t leave behind residue after using my cleanser.
Derma e Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil (Similar) This cleansing oil smells incredible and works like the pre-cleanse. It creates an emollient factor that makes my skin feel and look radiant! If you love rose water face mists, you’ll enjoy this product.
Simple Skin Cleansing oil: This is a great affordable alternative that still gives the same benefits as the other two options. This is also a great option for sensitive skin types!
DIY CLEANSING OIL RECIPE
If you’re looking for a more natural version with ingredients that you might already have in your pantry, you can try one of my favorite recipes that I use to create your own DIY cleansing oil. You can make a little at a time or make a larger batch. The lifespan of my DIY cleansing oil depends on how it’s stored! I recommend keeping it in a glass bottle that you can order off Amazon and keep in a cool dry place. I like to switch it out every 2-3 weeks! You can also substitute the ingredients to fit your own needs! Just make sure you have a base oil and add the oils you want for your own skin! Use google to find out some combinations for your own skin type!
