Skip navigation! Audrey Noble. Of the many ways to take care of your skin, washing your face seems the most simple.
Not the greatest, but at least all the material used is grown in North America. It's thick and is comparable to using olive oil straight from the bottle. It kind of gets the job done with a little more work than, say, DHC.
One thing most skincare experts agree needs to be firmly planted in the "good for you" category is oilsespecially when used for oil cleansing and moisturizing. My pores actually felt more clogged, despite all the claims of it drawing out impurities.

Ever since the mainstream American skincare market discovered that cleansing your face with oil like South Koreans have done for decades won't automatically break you out but can instead leave you with the cleanest, glowiest skin of your life, beauty brands have been coming out with cleansing oils right and left. For certain skin types, following the Korean double cleansing method by first washing your face with an oil-based cleanser most of which transform into a milky texture on contact with water and then following up with a water-based one can give you the best results in terms of makeup removal and nourished, hydrated skin. The issue, however, is that not every brand's attempt at cleansing oil gets it quite right. So, if you're in the market for a cleansing oil but want to avoid anything greasy or chemical-laden, we've got you.

As someone who has oily skin, the concept of putting anything with the word "oil" in the name on my face was a practice that eluded me for years. Face oils, cleansing oils — you name it, it wasn't going anywhere near my complexion. However, thanks to a little thing called double cleansingthe concept of kick-starting your routine with a gets-it-all-off oil has gone from a niche K-beauty skin-care step to full-on mainstream. Some are even packed with good-for-you ingredients that will actively nourish skin while giving a deep clean.
