From Makeup Remover to Skin Savior: Discover the Magic of Oil Cleansing for a Radiant Complexion

Oil cleansing… you’ve all heard about oil cleansers and
cleansing balms by now right? It’s been a trending search for a quite some time (doubling in google searches over the past five years in Australia!)

You might think it counterintuitive to use oils to wash your face, but it actually has so many benefits, and not just for dry skin types either. So whether you’re a seasoned user of oil cleansers (like our Fresh Face Cleanser *hint hint*), or have been thinking about how to incorporate one into your routine, we’re gonna have a look at why oil cleansing is the best way to wash your face and how it’s suitable for basically all different skin conditions


First up:

Oil cleansing is great at removing makeup and impurities.
Oil attracts oil, which means that oil-based cleansers are more effective at breaking down and removing excess sebum, dirt, and makeup from your face than water-based cleansers. Yep, even your waterproof mascara is no match for an oil cleanser.

This makes oil cleansing a great option for those who wear heavy makeup or have oily skin.
Let’s say that again… oil cleansing is a great option for those who have oily skin.
Bet you weren’t expecting that were you!


Oil cleansing is gentle.
Traditional facial cleansers contain harsh surfactants that strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. This can lead to an overproduction of oil and breakouts. Oil cleansers, on the other hand, work with your skin's natural oils to dissolve impurities and remove makeup without stripping your skin of its natural moisture.

This makes it a great option for those with sensitive or dry skin.


Oil cleansing can help balance your skin's oil production.
When you strip your skin of its natural oils, your skin can go into overdrive to produce more oil, leading to breakouts and congestion. Using oil to cleanse your face can help balance your skin's oil production by providing your skin with the moisture it needs, which can lead to fewer breakouts and a healthier-looking complexion.  

This basically means that if you have oily or combination skin an oil cleanser is going to help balance things out for you.


Oil cleansing can improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

Oil cleansing can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, which can lead to a smoother and more radiant face. Additionally, the gentle
massage involved in oil cleansing can help improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can help reduce puffiness and improve skin tone.

And who doesn’t want a healthier looking complexion amirght?
