I have a weakness for oil cleanser at the moment. My usual love-affair with make up wipes isn’t cutting it anymore so I have parted ways and cheating on them with cleansing oils – much less abrasive and so much more efficient lovers!

These beauties are my three trusty amigos!

Aveda Tulasara Radiant Oleation Oil*


Whilst a lot higher priced than your usual cleansing oil, I can assure you  – this Aveda innovation is 100% naturally-derived and worth the extra pennies.

Consisting of a blend of six plant oils (certified organic sesame, sunflower and jojoba seed oils, combined with rose hip, apricot kernel and sweet almond oils) the nourishing cleansing oil is designed to be massaged into the skin (post dry facial brushing) to help nourish and reveal skin’s natural glow. It is dermatologically-tested and non-conedogenic so perfect for all skin types.

For greater results, massage and leave on for 4 minutes to encourage micro-circulation.


Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner*


Oh holy hell, I have such a crush on this cleanser… like proper C.R.U.S.H! Why, you ask?! Well, this bay-boy is super efficient and is a crystal-clear micro-emulsion that brings together oils, esters and water-compatible cleansers in one super-advacned formulate that rinses off even the hardest to budge make up. In one quick rub, make up is dissolved and ready to be washed down the drain (and we all know I love simple and easy). Also, a little goes a long way meaning it lasts a lot longer than most oil cleansers.

Deciem knows how to break boundaries with their products. Innovation usually doesn’t come cheap but the great thing about Hylamide range is that quality products don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. You know the money you invest is going to give you great results – it is such a trustworthy brand and their ingredients are mostly sustainably-sourced meaning you are doing good whilst looking it.

To top it off, the Amazonian oils together with purified tomato carotenoids that are left behind help to add an extra layer of innocuous love and hydration: a non-comodegenic one at that!

Caudalie Make Up Removing Cleansing Oil


I’m like all kinds of obsessed with Caudalie so it is no surprise that I have churned through 6 of these cleansing oils in the past year!

I’ve always had a thing for French things – Men, food, fashion and skincare. I’ve always found them to be super reliable and value for money. So yeah – kinda in love with this cleansing oil for obvious reasons. It is a 100% natural formula (massive tick in my book) that is infused with a blend of oils that includes: sunflower seed, sweet almond and grape seed to deeply cleanse the skin sans the usual stripping of moisture some make up removers do.

This pump-pack is perfect for sensitive-skinned Sallys and also rich in Vitamin E meaning your skin will be left nourished and silky.

Have you tried cleansing oils before?
