If traditional foam cleansers can leave your face feeling tight, using a cleansing oil instead could provide the perfect skincare swap. Effective in dissolving stubborn makeup and hydrating too, it can also form part of an effective double cleanse routine too when paired with a cleansing cream.
A skincare staple among many of the team, here are our top picks for dry skin.
Formulated with grapeseed oil, this artificial perfume and colour-free pick is as friendly to skin as it is to wallets. Great at gently lifting makeup and daily dirt away, skin’s left feeling soft without being stripped.
Containing brightening vitamin C, exfoliating alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, and re-balancing turmeric and evening primrose, this particular oil provides a bevy of radiance-boosting benefits. Designed to be used on a dry or wet face (best to avoid eyes with this one), think of it as an energising smoothie for skin.
Transforming into a milky emulsion when rubbed between damp palms, this soothingly-scented pick calms and cleanses in equal measure. Its combination of avocado, sweet almond and macadamia oils works as a re-hydrating treat to bring lacklustre complexions back to life.
Formulated for use on both dry and damp skin and turning into a moisturising milk when in contact with water, this designer pick’s as lovely to use as it is to look at. Enriched with sweet almond oil, it leaves skin soft and smooth as well as grime and makeup-free.
Dubbed the ‘chameleon cleanser,’ what starts out as a honey-coloured gel quickly changes into a transparent cleansing oil and then a milk, to satisfyingly melt away daily debris. Formulated with conditioning marula oil, it's the perfect illustration of the trend for shape-shifting beauty products.
With a blend of 21(!) plant oils, this is one of the most hydrating products in our edit. Fragranced with parsley seed essential oil, it’s best used with a face cloth (which comes included) for comprehensive cleansing and to pop onto your skin after submerging in hot water for a relaxing steam treatment to clear out pores.
