WHAT IS CLEANSING OIL?
Cleansing oil is a lightweight oil that emulsifies with water to effectively cleanse skin without over-drying. Cleansing oil is usually free of soap, sulfates, and mineral oil and may contain a blend of botanical oils.
HOW DOES CLEANSING OIL WORK?
Due to its similarities in structure, water-free cleansing oil easily dissolves all traces of dirt, makeup, and impurities. When water is added, cleansing oil gently emulsifies and binds to impurities to rinse them away. Botanical oils are left behind and skin is left feeling soft, healthy and hydrated with a strong barrier.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLEANSING OIL?
Cleansing oil effectively cleanses and nourishes skin without over-drying. It gently dissolves and lifts away traces of dirt, oil, sunscreen, and even long-wear makeup.
WHEN TO USE CLEANSING OIL?
For best results, use cleansing oil morning and night before your toner.
For an even deeper clean, try double cleansing. Double cleansing is a method of cleansing your face twice, first with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. At night, first, use our lightweight cleansing oil and follow with a highly effective foaming cleanser that replenishes and soothes skin.
HOW TO USE CLEANSING OIL?
Dispense 3-4 pumps onto clean fingertips and gently massage into dry skin in upward, circular motions, including eye area. Add water and massage to emulsify. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel. To remove stubborn eye makeup, apply two pumps to a cotton pad, and hold over the eye area for 10 seconds before cleansing the entire face.
