CLARINS TOTAL CLEANSING OIL
When it comes to your nighttime cleansing routine, removing the combination of sunscreen and makeup - as well as the dirt and oil that’s accumulated throughout the day - requires a hardworking product. But does a hardworking makeup remover that takes it all off mean we have to compromise on skin that’s still soft and hydrated? Do we have to settle for properly clean with a side of tight and dry? Not if you’re using Clarins Total Cleansing Oil.
What it is: A silky oil cleanser.
What it does: Applied to dry skin and massaged in, Clarins Total Cleansing Oil works to shift the dirt, oil, pollution and makeup (yes, even waterproof and long-wearing formulations) from your skin to leave it cleansed without compromising skin health. It’s been formulated to support the skin’s microbiota, meaning there’s no tight, dry or uncomfortable feeling when rinsed off - just soft, smooth and clean skin.
How it does it: The lightweight oil is enriched with the Gentle Complex, which features organic yellow gentian (a flowering herb) and organic lemon balm hand-picked and harvested from Domaine Clarins, a private sustainable farm in the French Alps. These ingredients have been specifically chosen to help soothe and soften the skin with every wash, ensuring no tight, dry or uncomfortable feelings.
Who it’s for: Everyone! The Cleansing Oil is suitable for all skin types.
A fun fact to tell your friends: Clarins’ founder, Jacques Courtin-Clarins, formulated the brand’s first line of facial cleansers with Alpine herbs and gentian back in 1967. Today the same herbs are still used but sourced from the brand's own organic farm.

"I have been trying many cleansing oils and balms, from high end to cheaper. Some were better than others, but none of them was the ONE. Until I tried this one. This oil is amazing. It is not heavy, removes make-up, and washes off without residue. Leaves the skin so soft, but without that feeling that there is still something on the skin."
"This is such a gentle-yet-effective cleansing oil in removing my makeup and sunscreen. The texture is so soft and in fact not that oily. Most importantly it melts off the impurities that have consolidated throughout the day. This has truly become my staple in double cleansing"
- Shermie T
"My skin feels soft, smooth and nourished each time I use this product. I also really like the handy pump bottle/dispenser, which makes it quick and easy to dispense the product. This is a lovely cleanser that would suit all skin types, and is the perfect first step for double cleansing the skin."
