Oil Cleansers Breaking Me Out?

Hi! So I added an oil cleanser ( Anua heartleaf oil cleanser) to my routine about 2 weeks ago and my skin has been doing horribly. Iโ€™ve been getting tiny red bumps all along my cheeks and forehead. Google tells me that my skin is purging but there isnโ€™t anything in my oil cleanser to make my skin purge. What should I do? pls help!!


Re: Oil Cleansers Breaking Me Out?

Yeah, there's no purge with oil cleansers, @LilyCarpentier. It could be a simple negative reaction to the cleanser itself. Are you following it up with a water-based cleanser? Are you massaging the oil for longer than a minute or so?

Re: Oil Cleansers Breaking Me Out?

@LilyCarpentier have you tried a different oil cleanser?  Maybe itโ€™s something with the ingredients.

Iโ€™ve switched to the beauty of joseon balm cleanser and I can already see a difference in my skin!
