Every night, we go through the tedious job of removing our makeup after work. It’s always the same—grab a makeup wipe or pour micellar water on a cotton ball, and end up using a lot to get rid of everything on your face.
Recently, I found that using cleansing oil works just as well, maybe even better. A drop or two can easily melt off makeup before washing your face, and you’re done for the night. With that, we’ve rounded up various types of cleansing oils that’ll work for any need.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil
Made from essential lavender and primrose oils, this product emulsifies your makeup and leaves your skin moisturized. It’s also lightweight and works well in removing matte lipstick. Believe me, it easily melted the Colourpop Ultra Matte, which is usually difficult to remove with just micellar water. Available at Greenbelt 5 and Powerplant Mall.
Bioré Cleansing Oil
We know how hard it is to remove waterproof mascara (I’ve tried so many products!) without tugging at your lashes out. Bioré’s Cleansing Oil can help with this by gently massaging it over your eyelids. And voila! You’ve taken care of your waterproof mascara. Another great thing is that it’s affordable so you can stock on this. Available at Watson’s and BeautyMNL.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil
This Shea Butter Cleansing Oil is suited for the current cold weather. Aside from removing your makeup, it also keeps your skin hydrated and looking radiant after each use. Available at Rustan’s Makati and Greenbelt 5.
Shu Uemura Porefinist Cleansing Oil
Get rid of blackheads and other impurities with Shu Uemura’s cleansing oil. This lightweight product is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin as it clears out the dirt that’s clogging your pores. It also minimizes pores and gives you soft-looking skin. Available at BeautyMNL.
Erno Laszlo Firmarine Cleansing Oil
Formulated with jojoba and olive oils, Erno Laszlo’s Firmarine Cleansing Oil promises to firm up your skin upon use. The natural green tea and cucumber extract can also reduce radical damage left by harsh chemicals from other products. Available at Sephora PH.
Jumpstart your anti-aging regimen with this cleansing oil that has Vitamin E to prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also mild and contains aloe vera which works well with inflamed skin. Available at SM Makati.
