by HIKOCO New Zealand

“The miracle of black cleansing oil from its nature”

Hey Beauties~ I hope everyone had their good, fun holidays and have well settled back into work or school! Today I am going to introduce you to my favourite cleansing routines which is using an oil cleanser! Not only I'm going to introduce you to this product, but also show you guys a great tool that will save many people struggling to use an oil cleanser. Price: $34

Quantity: 150ml

Product Description: “The miracle of black cleansing oil from nature”

How to Use: Apply to a dry face, with or without makeup. Gently massage in small circles across the face. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

First of all, I can't forget to tell you about how much good ingredients this cleansing oil contains! This Klairs Gentle Deep Cleansing Oil contains various vegetable oils including:

  • Black bean oil, which helps to control sebum production (which does not limit beauties with oily skin to use oil cleansers)
  • Black sesame oil, which provides antioxidant effects
  • Black currant seed oil, which delivers rich minerals and vitamins for your skin.

The formula of this cleansing oil is slightly thicker compared to other cleansing oils. It is clear in colour and doesn’t have too much of a heavy fragrance, almost unscented. It removes basically all the make up off the face except very strong waterproof mascara without irritating the skin or leaving it dry. Price: $3

Product description: “The soft texture in contact with water allows the sponge to effectively remove the waste on the skin.”

How to Use

  1. Completely wet the sponge and use it to cleanse the face as the last step.
  2. After use, was it thoroughly in running water. Dry the sponge completely in ventilated area to reuse.

If you are a lazy, busy beauty who wants to remove makeup and oil all at the same time instantly, this Klairs Gentle Black Cleansing Puff is for YOU! This cleansing puff turns into a soft squishy texture when it is wet and allows the sponge to effectively remove any waste on the skin without irritating the skin. This cleansing puff works amazingly with not only the Klairs Gentle Deep Cleansing Oil but any type of oily cleansers even our cleansing balms! After massaging the oil cleanser onto the face to remove makeup, without the need of rinsing off the oil with lukewarm water several times, you can just easily wipe away any excess remaining with this cleansing puff in such a quick, simple way. 



When I first tried the Klairs Gentle Deep Cleansing Oil, the first thing I noticed, which is the main reason why I like this product is the thicker consistency it has compared to other oils. As an oil cleanser lover I always had problems with oil running down to my arms while cleansing. But with this Klairs cleansing oil I have never experienced any oil running down my arms while cleansing which I really enjoyed!! This cleansing oil was great that I didn't have to use seperate eye remover for my make up. It removed my waterproof mascara very well and all I had to do was just foam cleanse afterwards. However, it might only be the one I am using (Peripera Ink Black Cara) from HIKOCO. But this is when the cleaning puff becomes the hero~~~ When I used stronger mascara or lip products which needed extra cleansing by using an eye and lip removers, I just simply wet a portion of the cleansing puff with it and used the puff as a cotton pad. This reduced the amount of using different tools and products during my skincare routine and also saved more time! I loved using the Klairs Gentle Black Cleansing Puff to remove the excess oil off my face without having rinse off the oil several times. Trust me you will be surprised by how quickly and easily you can remove oil off your face. After adding the puff into my cleansing routine, I noticed how my skin felt softer and brighter. Surprisingly the puff helped my skin with daily mild exfoliating which also helped to reduce whiteheads and blackheads. The combination of oil to melt my blackheads and by using the puff for mild exfoliating made my skin look more glowy and soft. Just a quick tip for beauties with sensitive skin. I would recommend you to NOT squeeze out all of the water remaining in the puff before use as the more damp the puff is the more gentle and soft it will be on the skin. 

I would HIGHLY recommend this cleansing oil from Klairs if you have experienced similar problems like me with cleansing oils. Also to beauties with oily skin who was afraid to try oil cleansers, as the consistency and the formula of the oil cleanser is not too oily compared to other oil cleansers and contains ingredients that help to reduce sebum production. Also to those beauties who are looking for gentle ways to remove makeup. From personal experience I know that my skin gets easily irritated from using cleansing wipes all over the face, also very drying after removing it with wipes.

But after using an oil as a first step cleansing product, I can never get back to using other cleansing products due to how gentle and easy it is to remove make up in a way that wont irritate my skin or dry it out. I would recommend not only purchasing the cleansing puff with the Klairs cleansing oil but any beauties who uses oil based cleanser for their cleansing routines. I would definitely recommend you to try out the cleansing puff as it WILL make your life easier! Not only it saves time, but also saves the amount of waste produced from your cleansing routine. The cleansing puff can be re-used when its kept in a cool, ventilated place for it to dry and when it's cleaned properly with lukewarm water after every use!
