Cleansing oils play the most important role in a complete Korean skincare routine. Oil-based cleansers allow makeup products and sebum to be properly removed from the skin. They offer more benefits than water-based cleansers as some are designed to offer a mild washing option for individuals with sensitive skin. These are my top 5 picks for Korean cleansing oils.
Laneige Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil
Laneige’s Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil completely removes heavy makeup and melts away sebum and blackheads. It is a coconut oil-based mild cleanser that deeply cleanses the skin. Coconut oil is an excellent natural moisturizer and hair conditioner. It is effective in killing harmful microbes too. Mugwort extract, a renowned K-beauty ingredient that is high in antioxidants, is also included in the cleanser. Not to mention its delectable scent.
Those who want to feel refreshed after using cleansing oils, or are concerned about clogged pores, sebum, and blackheads should try this product.
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil
Rice water, minerals, and vitamin B are popular natural skincare components in Korea. All these ingredients are added to this cleansing oil so that it cleans the skin perfectly. It contains anti-inflammatory qualities and is supposed to make the skin look younger and more luminous.
This is the best cleansing oil for people who have dry skin.
Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Oil
The main ingredient of this cleansing oil is green tea extract. Green tea extract is used to reduce sun damage and provide other anti-aging advantages. Moreover, the oil is easy to remove from the skin because its water-soluble.
Personally, I find the biggest positive of the Green Tea Cleansing Oil from Innisfree is that it has a mild smell. Plus, people with oily skin or acne-prone skin can use this cleansing oil.
Nature Republic Forest Garden Chamomile Cleansing Oil
The main unique ingredient in Nature Republic’s Forest Garden Cleansing Oil is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is a light and soothing oil that is excellent for hydrating the skin. Those who have acne-prone skin can use this cleansing oil because it has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, plus it’s non-comedogenic. It also includes chamomile extract, which has a pleasant scent and calms the skin.
Missha M Perfect BB Deep Cleansing Oil
If you want to remove heavy, long-lasting, water-proof makeup then the Missha M Perfect BB Deep Cleansing Oil could be a great option. This effective cleanser contains a blend of oils such as jojoba oil, macadamia oil, sunflower seed oil, tea tree oil, and coconut oil to thoroughly cleanse and nourish the skin. It has a thick, smooth texture that is easy to spread.
