About the product

What Is It:

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.

Our insight:

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).

How to use:

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.

Ladies if you’re wearing makeup daily you should be doing a double cleanse. This melts away eye makeup and breaks down foundation and product on the surface of your skin. Rinse and follow with the ultra mild cleanser to leave your skin feeling clean and radiant. One extra step? Nope! I was able to omit my follow up makeup remover around my eye area and hair line.


I love SanDaWha Oil...it is amazing! My skin is smooth, silky and not stripped. It has a light scent and my makeup is off instantly. This is a Step 1 must =)


new to trying oils. LOVE THIS PRODUCT. i instantly saw my makeup disappear without any harsh rubbing or scrubbing. it was effortless. love the feel, the smell, everything.


Perfect for dry skin. It emulsifies with water to create a creamy lather. Smells light and fresh. It's my new favorite facial cleansing oil.


Perfect cleansing oil for dry skin-leaves no greasy residue.


SanDaWha is one of my favorite brands. I am head over heals for all of their beautiful ingredients . I admire the brand's transparency. Their high quality formulas promise astonishing results and this cleansing oil does not fall short! Silky, nourishing and lush! Great for all skin types, and does a great job at melting and loosening all that stubborn dirt and impurities that our pores trap throughout the day. Don't forget to follow your cleansing oil with a water based cleanser to benefit the most from an effective Double Cleansing.


Such a great line for sensitive skin. When I talked to people with sensitive skin about their skincare, they are often concerned that oil cleansers will irritate their skin, but this one definitely won't. Camellia and olive oils are very gentle on the skin.


Love ! Love ! Love 💕💕💕


This product is Great! My pre-teen daughter uses it on her dry face and it moisturizes perfectly!


This is the best oil cleanser I have tried to date. Just gorgeous! Love the creamy texture after adding water! Rinses clean, and leaves skin soft.
