Sensitive-skinned ladies, take note: unlike conventional makeup removers, this plant-based formula won’t irritate your skin.

Birchbox Breakdown

One is the loneliest number—at least when it comes to your skincare regime. Double up with this gentle cleansing oil, which ups the efficacy of your favorite face wash. Developed after Dermalogica therapists realized that clients weren’t cleansing thoroughly enough, this light oil dissolves makeup, dirt, and sebum to leave skin soft and residue-free. Even stubborn liner and waterproof mascara are no match for its blend of pure plant oils. It’s especially good for oily and combination skin types.

How it Works

Made with a botanical base of apricot kernel, kukui, olive, and rice bran oils, the one-of-a-kind formula thoroughly purifies your skin, prepping it for your other products. When you add a splash of water, the oil magically turns into a milky liquid that dissolves everything from waterproof makeup to residual sunscreen.

How to Use

Pour a small amount of the oil into your hands, and massage into dry skin. Next, wet your hands and keep massaging to sweep away the day’s debris. Rinse with lukewarm water, and follow with your cleanser of choice.

What gives?

Why would you put this in a piece in the magazine this month and then not carry it? There is no wait list either.

Love!

I love this stuff. It seems weird to clean your face with oils but it does a great job of taking my makeup off!

Precleanse

I love this stuff! I think it smells good and it gets the job done, it seems strange to put oil all over your face but after washing it off and using a warm cloth my skin feels so much better. Great product and worth the price

Great cleanser
Purchased

I use oil cleansing and my face is softer and not striped. This is a nice alternative to straight oil cleansing and leaves your face clean and moist.

Gentle, relaxing, soothing

Though I wasn't introduced to the pre-cleanse by Birchbox, I am so grateful I can purchase one of my favorite products through the Shop. It is a gentle oil that cleanses skin of all makeup, the days grime and preps the skin for moisturizer. But I will admit, this is so hydrating and gentle that sometimes I've forgotten my skin needs a moisturizer!

Can't live without it
Purchased

This is an item I was introduced to during a facial treatment for getting rid of makeup before washing face. I have noticed my face is much clearer after using this. I didn't realize I wasn't getting all the makeup removed let alone washing my face properly before using this. If I wear make up I always use this precleanse before washing with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and I find it makes all the difference. It's one of those items I look at now and wonder how I did without it.

Amazing Precleanser
Purchased

This product is fantastic! If you would have told me two years ago that I would be using OIL on my face to help cleanse it I would have called you crazy! But now I do not wash my face without this. The oil is so light and effective that you can feel it start to cleanse your face as soon as you put it on. It also can help take off my waterproof mascara without using eye makeup remover-- so its two steps in one! I cannot stress how great this product is!

a lifelong friend

I will never go without this. One bottle lasts a long time, and it is wonderful for makeup removal and as a first step in your cleansing routine. Make sure to use it without water first, massage into face, then add water for a milky/foamy emulsion.

Best product.

Absolutely the best face wash around. I have sensitive combo skin and this works better than ANYTHING I've tried. I use this, a serum, and a moisturizer and my skin glows. Amazing.
