Oily layer remaining on skin and make up not thoroughly removed
Skin Type: dry Skin
Skin Concerns: Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Large Pores, Sensitive Skin

I was so happy to try out this product, especially after checking it out on social media, where it was working perfectly, for my sensitive skin it was:

  • Too heavy feeling after cleansing, like I still have an oily layer on my skin
  • You have to cleanse afterwards with a foam cleanser (e.g. also Klairs). Otherwise it will start to irritate the skin and acne will appear
  • My makeup could not be removed thoroughly (I used the Deep Cleansing Oil twice in the evening, and the mascara was still somehow on my face).
  • The blackheads on the nose were still visible and were not becoming less after using the oil for 2 months.
  • I had the feeling that it was irritating my skin somehow.

This is why unfortunately I stopped using this cleansing oil, as it seems not to be suitable for my skin type.

Clogs my pores and leaves layer of oil on my skin

The cleansing oil unfortunately clogged my pores and made my fungal acne much worse. It did a good job when it came to removing make up but it also left a layer of oil on my skin.

doesn't cleanse throughly and leaves oily residue.

I've used it on several occasions as I've been getting a sample of it many times.
I wanted to love this so badly because I adore the rest of what I've tried from Klairs, but this just doesn't work for me.

I have dry and dehydrated skin with an acne prone nose area (it's a very recent patch and I'm working on finding what happened).

I clearly need something moisturizing, but this one leaves a greasy film of oil on the skin that I have to end up cleaning with a stripping cleanser which will make my skin uncomfortably tight.

I also pass on it as it doesn't remove all the makeup in one go and after the skin is covered in the oil residue, you can't really go over for another round.

It didn't break me out, but I would rather keep using my trusty Whamissa cleansing oil.
