Korean skincare regimen – Oil Cleaners

RECAP: Oil cleaners remove makeup & other oil based products. You always apply it on DRY skin.

Oil cleansing is like the first step in what is called “Double Cleansing”. You’d remove all the makeup and oils from your face, then you’d follow with a gentle wash, which is your foam cleanser step that cleanses the skin itself. So lets go into the products.

  • Laneige – They have 2 cleansers, Fresh Brightening – which you should use if you don’t like heavy feeling oil cleansers and if you’s like an quick and easy makeup remover. This cleanser uses Apricot and Grapefruit cleansing oil to remove dead skin cells for brightening effects, as the name suggest. Also uses Artemisia Vulgaris extract and Teatree extract, which has amino acids & proteins that causes anti-inflammatory, reduces redness, anti-bacterial, and anti-acne.  Then there is Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil – From the title you know this helps with troubled skin. This cleanser should be used if you wear heavy or full coverage makeup. It helps removes blackheads & excess sebum. The virgin coconut oil in this cleanser is used to remove full coverage and water resistant makeup.
  • Hera Purifying Cleansing Oil – This oil is more geared for dull, acne-prone & irritated skin. Its notable ingredients are moringa seed oil which is an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial. Calendula oil which is an anti-acne & anti-inflammatory.
  • DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – This is actually a very great “dupe” for a cleanser called Labo Gokujun cleansing oil from Japan. It’s less expensive and very similar. This cleanser has pure olive oil & Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate.

More to be continued. I thought that this was a good start as any for a very long in-depth explanations. Like always, hope you have a great day. Live free and stay safe! If you’d like to hear more from me please follow my blog. Any questions, please ask.
