By now, you know that using oil to cleanse our faces isn't counterintuitive. Cleansing oils combine with the oils in our skin or makeup to break down. Thus, an oil cleanser makes the process of dirt and makeup removal much easier.


An effective oil cleanser will remove stubborn makeup as well as purify your skin. Moreover, do so without stripping your face and leaving it dry and tight like some traditional foaming and lathering cleansers.

However, if the idea of putting oil on your face brings up images of clogged pores or grease, it might benefit you to note that oil cleansers do not actually do this. In fact, they are suited to every skin type. To get you started, here are the ten best oil cleansers of 2021 you should consider.
