Well Hello Queens!
This time I am coming at ya’ with the best oil cleanser on the market right now!
But first, let’s talk a little tiny bit about oil cleansing and how important it actually is for all skin types and not just dry skin.
As make-up products and sunscreen are usually highly pigmented and they contain a blend of oils, especially sunscreens, they need to be cleansed thoroughly in order not to clog your pores and cause breakouts. Oils can only be dissolved with other oils, which basically means that your high end amazing cleansing gel or foam cannot completely get rid of the oil-infused SPF and make-up, thus you need an oil cleanser to dissolve all the gunk on your face thoroughly. You could follow up with a low ph foaming gel cleanser if you wish to but, this product needs no second step, because it is formulated extremely well with a very short list of beneficial ingredients and most importantly it emulsifies into a silky milk and washes right off without any oil residue!
Ladies, and gents, here is the..
