Washing you face with a cleansing oil – regardless of your skin type – actually makes for the perfect first step in any routine. It gently removes makeup, excess oil, sweat, and bacteria that may buildup on the skin throughout the day. To combat this in the most gentle way, we’re loving these eight cleansing oils.
