Close friends ask me all the time for my number one skincare tip. This will always be double cleansing.
Finding the right cleanser for your skin type is important and a lot of the time difficult. What people don’t seem to be aware of is that double cleansing is just as important if not more and a lot easier to get into.
No matter what your skin type, an oil cleanser will be very beneficial to your overall skin health and appearance. We load our skin up daily with sunscreen, make up, pollution and germs from our hands. Before your cleanser can do any work on your skin concerns, we need to remove all of that! Oil cleansers are the best way to do this and a great way to achieve more out of all your other skincare products.

Klairs Gentle Black Fresh Cleansing Oil is full of very simple and (as the name suggests) gentle ingredients. Sunflower Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and Black Current Oil are rich in Vitamins A, B and C which help balance your sebum levels while removing make up, dirt and dead skin cells.
This cleanser is made up 50% by Sunflower Seed Oil which is a wonder for hydration and soothing the skin. This is true for any skin type, from sensitive to oily! You may be forgiven for thinking this came from the kitchen cupboard when you first use it but that is due to it being free of any synthetic fragrances, so it just smells like what it is, Oil!
I am no stranger to oil cleansers so this one fit right into my routine without any issues. I feel that it really cleans my face of any of the days build up without stripping or leaving me with that tight feeling. It preps me for the rest of my routine and really enhances the benefits of my serums and moisturizer.
Oil cleansers go straight onto a dry face with dry hands, really take your time to massage it in and rub off the day’s stresses. This is amazing for removing mascara in such a gentle way that you may see a difference in your lash health also!
Follow with a splash of warm water, you will see the oil become a milky colour and then rinse and follow with your normal cleanser.
This oil cleanser is one of those products that can be used (and should be!) by anyone of any age or skin type. The natural and limited ingredients make it perfect for people with sensitive skin, the advantages of the oil will also make it great for anyone with combination or oily skin to control those sebum levels.
The best addition you can make to your skin care is double cleansing and I think Klairs Gentle Black Fresh Cleansing Oil is the best place to start 😊
