My Favourite Cleansing Oil


This past year or so I have been exploring cleansing balms, and while I've used some lovely ones (notably Emma Hardie) and am continuing to explore what's out there, my heart belongs to the cleansing oil, and for me the best one I've used so far is Origins Clean Energy. I am on my 4th bottle of this oil, so I felt it needed a much deserved rave!

I have tried quite a few other brands (Shu, MAC, Nude, DHC, Dermalogica) but Origins beats all these as I find it to be very gentle (even around eyes) yet incredibly effective at removing everything easily with no panda eyes. It is packed full of different oils (and no mineral oil!) and has a wonderful subtle sweet citrus scent that feels uplifting and refreshing. It doesn't require a cloth to remove and rinses easily with water leaving my combo/acne skin feeling very clean and not dry. It also has a slight clarifying effect on the skin as well so a few minutes massaging into the skin helps to draw out impurities.

I think this is one of the most reasonably priced cleansing oils at £17 for 200ml and it lasts me about 4 months (I use it mostly in the evenings). The only negative is that the bottle doesn't come with a pump but I did buy one separately from Origins ages ago and I think it was £1.

I am tempted to try making my own easy rinse cleansing oil, but at the moment, I am content in using Origin's pre-made concoction!

    1. Hi Charlie
      I do like trying different ones but always come back to this. Next on my list to try is one by Sans Ceuticals.

    1. Hi Amelia Liana (lovely name BTW)
      I haven't come across an oil I dislike but they have to be gentle around my eyes and rinse off well so this fits the bill perfectly. Hope you get on with this if you try it.
