Once upon a time, we swore to never let oil touch our faces. But those days are long gone! As you probably all know by now, oil cleansing is the Japanese secret to spotless skin.

Cleansing oil is the crucial first step in any nighttime routine. Just massage it over your face to break down makeup, lift away dirt, and dislodge pore-clogging impurities. Then, rinse it off until the tap runs clear. Voilà! Sparkling skin in a matter of minutes. Snag one of our two fave formulas, below!

SPLURGE: Mizon No. 1 Cleansing Oil, now on sale at P1,080 (limited time only)
From the name alone, you can tell that Mizon’s No. 1 Cleansing Oil is confident in its abilities. It removes everything you want it to: pore-clogging dirt, makeup, and any sebum buildup from the day. Unlike astringent makeup removers, this Korean formula won’t strip your skin dry. Because it’s made with a blend of plant-derived oils, it hydrates and nourishes the skin while cleansing it. Sensitive skin types can use this stuff, too, thanks to its irritant-free formula. Definitely an oil you can count on!
