One of the best, and most underrated, feelings is a freshly cleansed face.

What if we told you you could maximise that feeling? Double it. Get that face really, really clean? Possibly the freshest, cleanest, g-damn prettiest it’s been been all week?

Here’s how: Cleansing oils, the first of a two-step regimen that ensures your skin is free from daily grime, makeup and potential pore-clogging gunk.

If you’re a fan of skincare oils, you’re probably familiar with the mechanics: oils draw out other oils, making them fantastic cleansers. They dissolve the thickest of makeup, even the waterproof stuff, and emulsify when you add water into a milky-white substance that lifts the impurities right off.

And don’t let their slick, silky exteriors confuse/deter you. Skincare expert and founder of Sydney’s The Beauty Scene, Elisa Markovic says, “As a first cleanse, an oil cleanser is ideal for ALL skin types”, in fact, “essentials oils such as ylang ylang, clary sage and lavender help to balance oil secretions in the skin”.

Just remember to follow up with a second water-soluble (i.e. non-oil) cleanser to remove any oil residue. ” We don’t want the oil to penetrate the skin or to be left on the skin (as now it is loaded with impurities),” says Markovic.

With winter fast approaching, this Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil is one super rich formula that balances, repairs and hydrates. And if you’re in the market for something more clarifying, the Coast To Coast Pore Purifying Cleansing Oil containing antibacterial rosalina  and eucalyptus is a lightweight formula that leaves skin refreshed and refined.

Cleansing with oils!  Simple, yet so effective. Who’d have thought?!
