Best Oil Cleansers to Remove Makeup

One of my most asked questions is how do I remove my makeup? Well to be honest with you, I stopped using makeup wipes. I’ve learned how bad makeup wipes can actually be for your skin if used daily. I made the decision to remove that out of my skincare routine and started to use oil cleansers. I have found a few oil cleansers that I truly love and I believe are worth splurging on.  I’ll give you a break down of each product and price.

Makeup wipes destroy your acid mantle, which is a delicate and important layer on the surface of your skin that keeps moisture in and junk out. Your acid mantle is how your skin protects itself from viruses, bacteria, and other nasty things that want in. Your acid mantle deserves love and protection. – Why You Should Stop Using Makeup Wipes by Lisa Boehm Beauty

Most oil cleansers are a 2-in-1, meaning not only does it remove your makeup but also cleanses your skin. Helping it remove dirt, residue while leaving your skin cleansed. I will say the best way to help remove your makeup, even more, is by using the Makeup Eraser cloth.

Tula Kefir Replenishing Oil 

Works on all skin types. It’s a lightweight, fragrance-free oil cleanser that is going to remove stubborn makeup and pore-clogging debris. At the same time, it’s going to replenish hydration, leaving the skin feeling smooth and soft. This cleanser also has probiotics that help maintain a skin balance, Rice Bran Oil to nourish and condition skin, and lastly Ceramide which is going to help with moisture retention.  [Use code: JASMINEMARIA for 15% off]

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

This was the first cleanser balm that I used to remove my makeup. I love this cleansing balm and it works amazingly. It is on the luxury side. It deep cleanses, softens, and nourishes your skin. It’s a powerful deep cleansing pro-collagen cleansing balm that not only dissolves your makeup but also daily grimes and pollutants. Your skin will instantly feel cleanses, nourished, and renewed while giving you beautiful glowy skin.

Dermalogica PreCleanse

I’ve mentioned this cleanser numerous times on the blog and that is because it’s also another great cleanser and it’s vegan. Not only will this melt away your stubborn makeup but also sunscreen and daily pollution build-up. It’s a lightweight formula that has a blend of nourishing olive and kukui oils to purify pores and deep clean residual products that build up on your skin throughout the day.

Glowoasis MakeupMelt

Ahhh another vegan product I truly love! This is a new product and I have been using their product before they launched and I fell in love with it. This makeup cleanser is infused with moringa seed oil which is going to protect and boost skin immunity.

This cleansing balm has eucalyptus and clove leaf oil. It melts away your makeup and impurities without stripping your skin’s moisture. The moment you start to massage the cleansing balm onto your skin while wet, the oil-based formula softens to create a light, gentle milk that rinses clean without the oily residue.

Lastly another favorite! This another great makeup cleanser that is going to remove stubborn makeup, water-resistant formula, all while leaving your skin feeling soft, clean, and hydrated. It’s formulated with antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and a soothing and nourishing blend of African oils.

    I thought people disliked makeup wipes for an environmental reason, but I had no idea how harmful they are to the face! I will have to look into these oil cleansers and other alternatives.
