Cleansing with Oil

With all the hype surrounding cleansing oils recently, we thought we would put a little blog together to simply identify why oils are sooo good for our skin and why we think this little craze will be here to stick!

We’ve been sent a few questions about using oil as a cleanser so we thought it might be good to put a “How?, what?, why?’ together for you all.

How does the cleansing oil work?

When massaged onto the skin, the oil in the cleanser binds to the surface impurities and pulls out the dirt without clogging pores, genius we say! The oil doesn’t sink into the skin; instead, it acts like a little hoover lapping up all those pesky impurities.

A lot of oil free cleansers actually strip our skin of natural oils, leaving it unbalanced, which then causes it to produce more oil in the aim of rebalancing what it has lost. You will all remember this from our ‘Trouble, what trouble?’ blog, because you all read it didn’t you? But if you wanted to read it again because it was so good we don’t blame you. Essentially, the excess production of oil equals more troublesome skin. Oil cleansers actually keep the skin’s natural pH balance and prevents it from having a production overload. Yipee.

How do I use Cleansing Oil?

Cleansing oil can be applied straight to the skin, with our Chocolate Orange Cleansing Oil we recommend dispensing 3 to 5 pumps into the palm of you hand. Gently rub your hands together to warm the oil and simply massage onto dry skin using relaxing circular movements for a couple of minutes, allowing the oil to connect to the impurities. Then, finally remove the oil using a damp wash or muslin cloth. Our award winning organic oil will also remove eye makeup.

Our Chocolate Orange oil is made from 99% organic ingredients and contains essential oils that are also naturally antibacterial. 

Did we mention that it is award winning and organic? Oh, sorry, we did! Here it is again anyway!

What product is right for you?

It is important to remember that not all oils are good for cleansing; baby oil for example contains mineral oil, which will clog pores when it locks in the hydration so avoid applying this onto your face. 

If you have dry, oily, normal, combination, sensitive or even alien skin, then you can all benefit from oil cleansing.

We will always recommend choosing a product that is natural, organic and free of harmful fillers, preservatives and mineral oils. 


Happy Cleansing!
