Battle of the Oil Cleansers 🔥🥇🥈🥉

Yaa
So you know the deal, if you wear sunscreen (which we all do, RIGHT 👀) then you need to be double cleansing at night to get rid of buildup and clean your skin. Since I’ve started double cleansing, my skin has really been more receptive to my nighttime treatments, serums and moisturizers because there isn’t an oily film preventing absorption. Fair warning when I started oil cleansing I went through a 2-3 week purging period where my skin broke out from all the gunk being pulled out. These are my top 3 cleansers for step 1 of double cleansing, let me know what your favs are! VERA BOTANICS - VERA BOTANICS Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover
I love love love this oil cleanser, it is super light weight and emulsifys so nicely! It only has 4 ingredients and takes off a days makeup like a charm. Because it is so light, I find myself using way less than normal oil cleansers because it spreads easily. This product is only 9-12 dollars, depending which vendor you are buying from and when. One bottle will last me about 2 months cleansing 1x a day! BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Purifying
This is a cult fav, so I had to try it. While I really appreciate the easy emulsification, the initial application feels a bit weird to me and has the consistency of hardened coconut oil that you have to melt. While I really like this one for removing heavy makeup, I don’t run to it when just double cleansing off sunscreen for the day. DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil
Ahhh a classic and popular pick, its true DHC is that girl! Easy, classic, olive oil based for all skin types, and no fragrance. I like DHC, it has all the whistle and bells for a great oil cleanser, however I only have this size thanks to Costco and wince at the normal price. I would recommend DHC for more sensitive/dry skin types because this is the creme de la creme of oil cleansers and is one of the OG legit formulations.

Amazingly Effective Makeup Removing Balm
BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Purifying I’ve been on the hunt to find the perfect cleansing balm for the first step of my double cleanse process and this one is definitely in the running for 1st place! The texture is more of a firm waxy feeling when it’s first scooped out, but turns into a luscious creamy, smooth balm when warmed up in hands before applying to the face. This removes ALL of my makeup ( two mascaras, Stila eye liner, full eyeshadow, and foundation/concealer/setting powder) in one go and then rinses off easily and completely. My skin is fairly oily and I find that cleansing balms work much better for me than cleansing oils when it comes to not leaving a film on my skin. This balm reminds me of the Clinique take the day of cleansing balm, but this one has a sweet fragrance to it which I enjoy, but others may not. Also, this balm has quite a few added ingredients like centella asiatica extract, licorice root extract, and aloe. Have you tried this one out or any of the other Banila cleansing balms? What are your thoughts?

Week 1 of Barrier Repair
All through winter (New Zealand) I experienced dry, tight, flaky, red, sensitive, reactive, itchy and eczema prone skin. What a mouthful! Then thank you to an ad on instagram I came across this app, and I learnt sooooo much about my skin. I spent endless hours (when I could with a toddler) going through post after post on this app, taking notes, saving products and doing my own research. I realised I had compromised my skin barrier with endless products and a steroid cream prescribed by my doctor for my eczema (eek I know). I culled my whole routine as nothing I was using was working for me and purchased the basics, mind you I had to wait a while for some products to come from overseas as they are not available here (and some I couldn’t get a hold of at all so had to find similar products). My routine in Week 1: AM CLEANSE: splashed my face with water TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 right now I am unsure as to how effective this is, my skin feels supple and soft but for any long term benefits I will have to wait and see. MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream with it only being week one, I haven’t seen anything dramatic happen yet SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I am still unsure about this as it leaves me with a white case initially but that fades after five or so minutes. PM CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin so far this has been amazing, doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. Feels really hydrating. I massage it in for about 1min before rinsing. TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I was finding that this was just not hydrating enough for my skin and left me tight, and I needed to reapply a few hours later as I headed to bed. But still waking up quite dry in the morning. After a few days I realised I probably wasnt getting my sunscreen off properly and decided to add in a step in the PM. PRE-CLEANSE: BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Purifying I had this for removing makeup, a purchase I made on the whim about a year ago as I hated using wipes etc. I only realised after adding this step back in that this was making me reactive and I would wake up itchy with what looked like hives around my eyes/cheek. I culled both products (luckily I only purchased the 30ml of the NMF cream so I had pretty much used it up) and did some more research. See Week 2 of Barrier Repair for more...

Oil cleanser for oily/combo skin!!!
I know most people with oily skin are told to stay away from oil cleansers, but this cleanser (found on amazon) DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil is amazing and I find works really well. If I were you I’d still do a double cleanse though. I am a huge advocate/ fan of the double cleanse. Oil cleansers are good because they easily break down that spf we have been wearing all day! You should always be wearing some form of spf! Gel cleansers are not always so efficient of breaking down spf. It also breaks down sebum, pollutants and difficult to remove make up such as lash glue. A gel cleanser or foaming cleanser can work as a second to rid of makeup and clean out pores. For the price of the product I feel this is a great oil cleanser!! DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil

my favorite gentle cleanser
my favorite gentle cleanser
FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser is a cult favorite for a reason: this cleanser is so gentle and hydrating despite being a foaming cleanser, due to ingredients like honey and hyaluronic acid. It smells very faintly of honey and foams easily without leaving my skin feeling stripped. The pump packaging has always worked well for me, and of course the branding (like all of Farmacy’s products) is beautiful. I reach for this if my skin is very dry or sensitive from ingredients like acids and tretinoin. I love this cleanser so much and I really want to try the new body wash, Bee Clean!

I haven’t changed my mind abou
I haven’t changed my mind about farmacybeauty green clean. It is still by far the best cleansing balm I have ever used and definitely a favourite skincare product! It’s very similar to banilaco but I find that this doesn’t feel as greasy on my skin. I also really enjoy the subtle fresh, citrusy scent 😍 anyways, look at that texture tho!

Great cleanser for dry skin
Great cleanser for dry skin
I was surprised how well this actually works!FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 🔥This product is vegan, cruelty-free. I have dry and sensitive skin and this removes all of my makeup even my water proof eye liner and mascara. It leaves my skin feeling clean yet moisturized. 🔥First things first, it's a beautiful container and comes with a little plastic spatula so you don't have to dig your dirty heads into the container. I'm used to makeup removers taking a bit of scrubbing to get things off, but this does exactly what is says, and melts off. I was shocked. It really truly works. 🔥The other thing that I love is it has a really subtle smell. 😂😂😂ONE THING: DO NOT PUT ON EYES. I suggest the Sens eyes from Makeup forever. This doesn't hurt your eyes, but my vision gets so blurry afterwards, that I can't see.

BEST make up remover !!!!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
BEST make up remover !!!!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
I got this one as sample from Sephora. I didn’t knee this brand and I was really unhappy with the product,I didn’t thought this would work. I took it to a trip because it was small, when i tried to remove my mascara, it went REALLY fast ( i actually use two mascaras, both waterproof so you can imagine how hard is to remove all the dirt from my eyelashes) but this product was excellent, I didn’t expect this to happen. So I’m in love with the product, the big one cost 34& in Sephora! Trust me, you wouldn’t regret it! 🧡

Maybe you've been hearing the
Maybe you've been hearing the phrase doublecleanse more and more lately. It's definitely the very trendy thing to do right now when it comes to skincare. I believe to first using an oil-based or balm cleanser that will really lift the impurities and the second is to use something that's super gentle and lathers nicely. Because the main benefit of double cleansing is that products can be more effective when applied to an already clean face, so having that first cleanser to remove and the second to penetrate is never a bad thing. I have recently added a new cleanser to my double cleansing routine and it's done an amazing job of sloughing away makeup and keeping my skin clear, yet nourished. Say hello to the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm. At night, I go straight with this sorbet-texture formula that waves goodbye to waterproof mascara and even heavy foundation then it emulsify to more of a creamy texture that leaves your skin without any oily residue. I only use a tiny amount and then use a wash cloth to remove the balm as the first step to a double cleanse. I just love how gentle and non-drying this product feels. That happens because it has non-comedonic and non-irritating ingredients, including sunflower and ginger root oils that leaves skin hydrated and silky smooth. Moringa extract that nourishes and Papain to gently exfoliate the skin. It also contains a unique blend of lime, bergamot and orange essential oils that makes this product smell refreshing. As for packaging, I like how it came with a spatula which is super handy in keep it all hygienic.

I picked up the dhc cleansing
I picked up the dhc cleansing oil, one of the most raved about makeup removing products, and let me just say I’m glad I got it during the ulta sale lol It removes makeup pretty well, but it’s a thicker cleansing oil compared to ones I’ve used in the past. I find myself having to tug at my skin just to spread it around my face. It takes way too long to work into the skin. Love that it gets rid of almost all of my makeup but I don’t see myself repurchasing. It works well and does what it’s supposed to but it’s just too thick for my liking. If you don’t mind a thicker oil I suggest you pick this up. DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil .
