The Best Oil Cleanser for Each Skin Type

Not all oil cleansers are the same. Learn what you should look for when choosing yours and find the best oil-based cleanser for your skin type.

You may have heard about double-cleanse before, that crucial, daily two-step routine that gives us the peace-of-mind of having thoroughly removed all of that gunk accumulated on our precious faces (think: makeup, sebum, pollution, and so on). And even though both steps are equally important, let’s be fair: it’s the oil-based formula that does most of the heavy work. Learn how to choose the best one for your skin type.

Oily/Combination Skin:

ENature Moringa Cleansing Balm
Moringa seed extract is the star ingredient of this cleansing balm. Rich in vitamins, nutrients, amino acids, and antioxidants, it works to build natural collagen to fight signs of premature aging while breaking down makeup, dirt, excess sebum, and pollution. The seeds themselves also have a unique protein that binds to impurities and purifies its surroundings.
Dry Skin:
Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil
This solid cleanser from the Korean-French skincare brand will remove the day from your face while bringing moisture back into your skin. Give this one a go if you’re looking for a gentle formula that will leave your complexion hydrated and feeling pampered. Its subtle herbal scent—courtesy of a soothing 7-herb blend from Paris—provides a bit of aromatherapy to your routine and most importantly is non-irritating.

Sensitive Skin:

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil 
Featuring a super mild yet effective formulation, this cleansing oil is the perfect call for sensitive skin. Three different bean and fruit extracts give this cleansing oil its unique color. Black bean oil helps to control oil production, black sesame oil provides antioxidant properties, and black currant seed oil nourishes skin with vitamins and minerals.

Normal Skin:

Missha M Perfect BB Deep Cleansing Oil
Enriched with coconut, grape and macadamia seed oils, this cleansing oil has a smooth texture and glides over skin, melting away impurities and instantly refreshing your face for a clear, healthy complexion.
