Review: Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil

IMG_20170820_203013 (2)

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. These days we have so many fancy things that can remove our makeup, such as water, balm, wipe, stick, bar, etc. Remember back in the day we use cleansing oil to remove makeup? Today, I am going to share this Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil with you.

I know that cleansing water is so in the hype a few months ago, and people still in love with it, but cleansing oil isn’t for removing makeup only. If you pay attention to the Korean beauty, they use cleansing oils (or natural oil) to do the double cleansing. Let’s not talk too deep into double cleansing for now. Since we use sunscreen every day, and most sunscreens leave white casts that aren’t possible to remove by regular cleansers, it is how cleansing oil becomes handy. Of course, you can use cleansing water to clean sunscreen. I just think cleansing oils do a better job and don’t dry out our skin when we do the double cleansing.

It is why I start using cleansing oil more often. To be honest, this Klairs cleansing oil sits in my drawer for a year. (It was dusty.) I remember I bought it in a bundle with other Klairs products. I mainly went for the face bar soap. Anyway, I have been using it for a month now and think it is a good time to write a review about this. So let’s start with the basic information:

KLAIRS’ Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is composed of various vegetable oils that are helpful for skin care.

Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is the best cleanser to maintain skins moisture even after cleansing.

Texture and Color:


Just like regular oil, it is shiny and runs around on the back of my hands. Interesting fact that, it is called black deep cleansing oil but doesn’t have any color. It is clear oil and very easy to spread over on my face. It is really gentle. My sensitive skin doesn’t feel burns, turns red or feels any dryness. I like to use cotton swap with this to remove my eyeliner. It doesn’t have any scent. I think the fragrance in the ingredient list is to remove any scent. (Or I just have a bad nose.)



It actually does a good job at removing makeup. It can remove most kinds of makeup. The lip tint got cleaned completely after I used a foam cleanser to clean it. For days I wear makeup and use setting powder, it cleans my makeup completely too. I give it a 4/5 just because I didn’t test it on makeup with makeup setting spray and other super long-lasting products. (I don’t have any spray or super long-lasting products) Please also note that I used one pump of oil only. I didn’t use this cleansing oil serval time to clean these.

It doesn’t make my skin breakout or dry. I personally like it better than makeup removal wipes since it is much gentler and cleans better. I also think cleansing oil is the best option dryer season or place. If we use it and wash it off properly,  it shouldn’t clog our pores. Check out this video to learn how to use cleansing oil if you don’t know. (The add water step is so important.)

I think that’s all for me today. I am doing the double cleansing with this cleansing oil for a month and almost use it up. I need to buy another cleansing oil as a replacement. I think I will go back to my DHC deep cleansing oil since that is little bit afforable and has higher rating. What do you think about this cleansing oil? What products do you use to clean your makeup? Do you think cleansing oil is too old fashion?

  1. I still need to try a k-beauty cleansing oil! I just ran out of my Clinique Take The Day Off Balm which is my favourite, but I am still using its sister, the cleansing oil version lol XD I actually prefer the balm though – I like massaging my face with it more, so I don’t think I will buy the oil version again.

    Other than those, I tried the L’Oreal one before (can’t remember the name but it’s orangey). It works well but I find it a bit messy to use at the sink so I didn’t buy it again.

    1. I never try balm type. Do they have butter texture? Like it melt on our skin? I use cotton pad to have some cleansing oil to wipe my face first so oil is easier for me. And yes, I think cleansing oil is not travel-friendly. Imaging taking it out from the sample bag or bottle. XD

      1. Balm type is like butter but without the greasy feeling. You really have to try to understand! I am going away soon but I need to buy a new balm to use since mine ran out. Will probably buy The Body Shop one which I also really like and the size is perfect to travel with!

        Yeah, cleansing oils are not great for travel at all. That’s why I keep mine in the shower. XD
