I've put together a little three part series on the oil cleansing method. Part One covered the basics of this method, along with a how to guide. Part Two covered DIY recipes and how to make your own blend. Today I'm going to talk about store bought options.
Can I Buy an Oil Cleanser?
The short answer is yes. The oil cleansing method has gained a lot of popularity over the last year so many brands are creating their own mixes.
But not all oil cleansers are created equal.
First, there's a difference between using an oil based cleanser, and using the oil cleansing method. Oil based cleansers are often mixed with other ingredients. These cleansers are great for removing your makeup and cleansing your skin, but you'll still need to follow up with a separate moisturizer. If you're interested in something like this, I recommend the 100% Pure Flax Seed Cleansing Oil.
Secondly, buying a cleansing oil can be limiting. It takes away your ability to customize your oil blend. If you're noticing your skin loves tamanu oil and needs less castor oil, you can't really adjust that with a store bought cleansing oil.
That's why I highly recommend playing around with DIY recipes first. Adjust your oils and ratios until you discover which oils your skin really loves. That way, if you want the convenience of purchasing an oil cleanser, you know what ingredients to look for.
P.S. The Leaves of Trees Facial Cleansing Oil is absolute perfection for my skin. It's made with super high quality oils that cleanse and nourish my skin.
What are your thoughts on the cleansing method? Let me know if you've given it a go!
