An editor favorite, this cleansing oil “grips” and removes oil-based makeup (even waterproof mascara), sunscreen, dirt, and excess sebum, all while maintaining the moisture balance of the skin. Made with 61.55% Jeju camellia seed oil and over 99% natural ingredients, this cleansing oil washes away cleanly, without the need for a follow-up foam cleanser, if you so wish. There are no synthetic oils like silicone or mineral oil in the cleansing oil, and it’s hypoallergenic, so it’s perfect for all skin types.
This is an editor-fave cleansing oil for its non-overly slick feel, super gentle makeup removal abilities, and refreshingly clean finish. It doesn’t have that suffocating oily feeling of other cleansing oils, and we love that it’s nourishing our skin with antioxidants to sweep away pollution particulates. While we like to follow up our cleansing oil with a foam cleanser, you don’t have to with this clean-rinsing cleansing oil, especially if you have dry skin. Read about our double cleanse techniques (including the “against the grain” method).
Pump 2-3 times into dry palms and massage over your dry face. Add a little water to emulsify into a milky lotion as your massage. Rinse thoroughly with water.
In its nature-based skincare line, SanDaWha harnesses the purity and power of the camellia flower that thrives in the unique ecosystem of Jeju Island, considered Korea’s Hawaii for its tropical climate and lush greenery. Camellia seed oil is rich in vitamins, omega-3, -6, and -9, and oleic acid; absorbs well without stickiness; and helps to deeply hydrate skin. Using a cold-pressing process to naturally extract unrefined camellia oil, thereby preserving its skin-nourishing properties, SanDaWha emphasizes high quality ingredients over fancy packaging. SanDaWha believes in skincare that is kind to your skin, your health, and the environment, and never uses harmful ingredients.
