Makeup Remover + Cleansing Oil ✨

$ 6.99 $ 9.99

This ultra lightweight skin-clearing blend of jojoba and watermelon seed oil is perfect for cleansing and removing makeup.

Oil cleansing effectively cleanses your skin without disrupting your skin's pH balance, meaning: your skin doesn't fall for the typical cycle of being too dry and tight, then too oily. It stays balanced and healthy.

Love multitasking products? You can also use this oil cleanser as a moisturizing serum!

Wildcrafted jojoba oil, virgin kalahari melon seed oil, non-gmo tocopherol oil (vitamin E,) essential oils of roman chamomile, (organic) ylang-ylang, (organic) and geranium

  • Wildcrafted jojoba oil: Jojoba oil is a liquid wax similar in texture to the natural oils produced by our skin. It provides lightweight moisture that doesn't clog pores.
  • Virgin kalahari melon seed oil: A lightweight and fast-absorbing oil that has slightly astringent properties. It penetrates deeply to help unclog pores while moisturizing and firming skin. Rich in skin-repairing and anti-inflammatory omega 6 and 9 fatty acids and antioxidant rich vitamins A, C, and E. 
  • Tocopherol oil (Vitamin-E): Vitamin E tocopherols, derived from 100% non-GMO sunflower seeds, extend the shelf life of the other oils in our formulations due to their high levels of free-radical fighting antioxidants. These free-radical fighting antioxidants also help repair and nourish your skin!
  • Essential oils: Chamomile, ylang-ylang, and geranium essential oils soothe, balance oil production, and leave your skin looking radiant. They also add an incredible floral fragrance. 

Oil cleanse: Massage a generous amount into dry skin. Wipe off with a warm, damp washcloth.

Stick to your routine: Follow with toning mist and facial oil.

Multitask: Makeup remover + cleansing oil can also be used as your facial oil!

Double cleanse: This can also be used as a first cleansing step to remove makeup before using one of the Twinkle Apothecary powder cleansers or masks. 

    How does oil cleansing work? 

    Oil cleansing works by dissolving dirt and oil buildup in the pores.

    It's balancing for all skin types because it doesn't disrupt the skin's pH levels. Foaming cleansers and soaps are too alkaline, and strip the skin of its naturally protective oil, creating an inhospitable environment for the good bacteria that live on your skin (the microbiome.) This also causes transepidermal water loss and leaves your skin vulnerable to harmful pathogens, causing overly sensitive, reactive, inflamed skin prone to premature aging. 

    Oil cleansing effectively removes the dirt and old oil building up in your pores without damaging the delicate skin barrier layer. 

    I'm too lazy for a skincare routine. Can I just use this and be done with it? 

    You can do whatever you want, but you will see better results if you tone and moisturize after cleansing. Toning helps re-balance the skin's pH to protect the microbiome, (even though oil cleansing doesn't disrupt the skin's pH, rinsing with alkaline tap water does!) and moisturizing with a facial oil helps repair the skin barrier and prevent water loss.

    Team Cleansing Oil!

    I was initially skeptical of using oil as a facial cleanser. I loved all the other products that I’ve purchased, so I decided to take a chance. Now I am definitely on team Cleansing Oil! My face feels very clean and it doesn’t dry out my face like other face washes. I also love the feel and smell of the product. The 8oz bottle generally lasts me around 5 months, so it is worth the cost!

    Fresh and Efficient

    Having oily skin, I never thought I could love an oil product as much as I love and use this one. I use the double oil cleansing method (toning mist in between) and this oil is perfect for removing my makeup and clearing my pores while keeping my face moisturized. Especially in winter months, my skin can't get enough.

    I love the feel of this during my cleansing and after! The combination with my facial oil (acne) and toner. My skin looks soooo good!

    Not only does the cleansing

    Not only does the cleansing oil not strip my skin it leaves my face more moisturized. I use it with the calming cleansing grains and I love it.

    This oil is awesome! Not

    This oil is awesome! Not only does it smell great, my skin has been super soft since using it. I was hesitant about washing my face with an oil, though now I can't imagine washing my face with anything else!
