What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Hi,

 

I am in search for a good cleansing oil that removes makeup and is good for sensitive skin. Any suggestions? What do you think about Tatcha and Shu Uemura?

I use Tata Harper Nourishing oil cleanser and find it absolutely lovely.  It is excellent for sensitive skin, it is excellent for "skin".

 

I have used Tatcha before and didn't care for it.  It clouded my eyes easily, and constantly.  I haven't tried Shu Uemura, but I know it is well loved by many.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

@greenchilli I haven't had issues with the Tatcha oil cleanser clouding my vision, and I use it on my eyelids cause they can get pretty oily. I'm definitely going to be a lot more careful now lol. 

Cheers!

Hi @NikkoBT

 

If it ain't broke....don't fix it!

 

We live in a good time where there are so many excellent products easily accessible.  Something for everyone.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Hi @tvisram,

 

I use Tatcha's Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, and I have sensitive, oily combo, acne prone skin. I don't use it for removing makeup, since I don't really wear makeup, but it makes for a nice morning cleanser!

 

I would also suggest trying Boscia's MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil. Again, I'm not too sure how it works for removing makeup, but I love all skin benefits that this oil cleanser has! My skin always feels super soft after using this. I hope this helps. 

 

p.s. I'm thinking of putting some makeup on just to test out how well these cleansers remove makeup. I'll let you know if I do Smiley Happy

 

 

Cheers!

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Tatcha and Shu are both great at removing makeup and for sensitive skin. I find Tatcha to be a bit thicker and more moisturizing than Shu.

 

Boscia makeup breakup oil is great at removing makeup, but the fragrance is rather strong. It didn't irritate my skin but if you are sensitive to strong fragrance especially around the eye area, try other cleansing oils first.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I really love Josie Maran's cleansing oil, smells good too lol Smiley Very Happy

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I've used Josie Maran's and Julep's cleansing oil as well as Tatcha. I VASTLY prefer Julep's, surprisingly. JM is too thick imo and Tatcha is too runny. Julep seems to be the perfect one for me personally and it smells good.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

My favorite and go to lately has been L'Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil. It does't dry out or strip my skin, and it does a nice job of removing make up. I think the shea is very soothing, and the oil emulsifies instead of lathers, so the texture is nice. 

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I love Shisiedo's Perfect Cleansing Oil.  Takes everything off!  Plus, you can use it on wet or dry skin.  I've been using this on and off for about a decade now (I only using cleansing oils & always end up coming back to this one).

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

This one has quickly become a favorite of mine. I love how thick it is and how soft it makes my skin feel. 

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Do you all use a second cleanser after the oil?

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Most of the times I do, because the oil cleansers often leave a residue and my pores are easily clogged. Some oil cleansers like Tatcha or Shu Uemura rinses off well so my skin feel clean and wiping with toner picks up nothing, in which case I don't follow up with a second cleanser. But for Josie Maran, Boscia etc I use a gentle cleanser after removing makeup with the oil.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Always. I look at the oil cleanser as a makeup remover only. After that I need a cream cleanser to really remove the the dirt, sweat, and grime (plus residue from the oil cleanser) from my skin.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I normally use Tatcha's rice enzyme polish afterwards, but if not, I'll for sure use a toner.

Try Votary Cleansing Oil

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

Hi Tvisram, I love cleansing oils and I've tried several. I always come back to the Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil. It's a thicker texture so I feel like it really does breakup all the makeup immediately. It's faster to use and I use less product. With others I have tried, I usually end up having to use more to get my smoky eye off. 

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

If you have sensetive skin try to stay away from things thathave mineral oil in them. It claims that it doesn't clog pores but yet it does.

The one of the best one from price/quality is th body shop one, the same with their balms, they are great! Same goes to clinique balm. Right now I'm using the Biotherm oil, it will not help with a heavy eye make up but generally it's nice.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I've never been really into Clinique, but their Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm is amazing. I've had it for 4 months and am not even half way done. I normally run through make-up remover like it's my business too, I'm heavy on mascara, liquid liner, eyeliner, bright colors etc.

Re: What is a good Cleansing Oil?

I have to agree with Keelybt and others about the Boscia. I've used it often and it is very gentle to my sensitive skin. It does have a slight minty smell and doesn't leave a weird residue. I use the charcoal black cleanser afterwards and follow it up with their facial tonic (toner) followed by their sake blue hydration serum.

 

I talked with a rep and they said they would bring back the blue sake hydration serum.
