Oil-based cleanser

22 products

Oil-based cleanser products from South Korea have become a popular first step in skincare routines all over the world, thanks to their effective and gentle cleansing ability. The Korean beauty philosophy, also known as K-beauty, places great importance on clean and well-moisturized skin, and oil-based cleansing plays a key role in this routine.

What is oil-based cleansing?

Oil-based cleansing is a method that effectively removes makeup, sunscreen, and excess sebum from the skin. It is known for its ability to gently but thoroughly clean the skin without drying it out, making it ideal for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.

Benefits of oil-based cleansing

Deep cleansing

Oil-based cleansing products are great for dissolving and removing makeup, sunscreen, sebum (the skin's natural oil), and other oil-based impurities from the skin without drying it out.

Gentle on the skin

Unlike some other cleansing methods that can be drying or irritating, oil-based cleansing is gentle and suitable even for sensitive skin.

For all skin types

Despite a common misconception, oil-based cleansing is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin. Fat dissolves fat, which means these products can effectively cleanse and balance even an oily skin type.

Double cleansing

In K-beauty, double cleansing is a central part of the skincare routine. An oil-based cleanser is used first to remove oil-based products and impurities, followed by a water-based cleanser to remove remaining impurities and water-soluble substances.

Improving skin health

By effectively removing impurities and preventing the clogging of pores, oil-based cleansing can contribute to clearer skin and reduce the risk of skin problems such as acne.

How to use an oil-based cleanser?

Use is simple and consists of a few steps: Apply the oil-based cleanser to dry skin and massage it in to dissolve makeup and impurities. Then add water to emulsify the cleanser, turning it into a milky consistency that can be easily rinsed off. Finish with a water-based cleanser to fully cleanse the skin.

Can I use an oil-based cleanser every day?

Yes, for most people once a day is enough, especially in the evening to remove the day's accumulated makeup and impurities.

Is it only for those who use makeup?

No, even if you don't use makeup daily, oil-based cleansing is important to melt away sebum, SPF, and impurities that a water-based cleanser cannot effectively remove.

Double cleansing - why?

Double cleansing involves using an oil-based cleanser and then a water-based cleanser. This method ensures that all impurities are removed, contributing to healthy and clear skin.

Oil-based cleansing from South Korea is not just a trend but a thoughtful part of a skincare routine that prioritizes gentleness and effectiveness. By including this product in your daily routine, you can experience the benefits of deeply cleansed, fresh, and radiant skin, free of impurities and maintaining a natural moisture balance.
