Review: Iunik Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil

18. February 2019


As you might know, I love the double cleansing method. If you don’t know what it is, I can recommend you so much to try it. With the double cleansing method, you use an oil-based cleanser first to remove your makeup, and the continue with a second cleanser for cleansing your skin. In my eyes, oil cleansers and balm cleansers are the most effective way to remove makeup. Here is one of the oil cleansers that I’m using at the moment: the Iunik Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil.

Iunik Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil

IUnik is a Korean brand that has launched a couple of interesting skincare products. Their packaging design is simple but neat, and the products sound promising. you can check out the products >>here<< on the official webpage. I also reviewed the Iunik Rose Galactomyces Essential Toner and Synergy Serum some time ago here on my blog. I was happy and curious to try a new product from their range this time.

Iunik Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil

The Iunik Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil is a mild cleansing oil suitable for all skin types that contains 94% of pure plant oil. The packaging design is simple as expected for the brand and the ingredients list is short and down to the point, which I really like.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil,  Canola Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower extract, Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Cananga odorata flower oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate

This is the full ingredients list! 7 ingredients and 5 of them are plant-based oils. I love that fact. You can also check the ingredients via SkinCarisma if you want to. The product is free from parabens, sulfates, alcohol, silicone. It is EU allergen free and has a minimalistic ingredients list.

The cleansing oil comes in a pump bottle containing 200ml, which will last you for a long time. I’ve been using this cleanser now for 2 months in rotation with some other cleansers and I’ve used half of the bottle.

The texture is typical for an oil cleanser and feels like oil, too. it emulsifies when it is in contact with water. Usually, you apply cleansing oils on your dry skin and rub gently, to dissolve the makeup and the dirt. Then, using lukewarm water emulsify the oil on your face and work it in some more, before washing it off. Then, follow up with your preferred second cleanser. It perfectly removes the makeup and works great in my eyes. the short ingredients list is a plus if you are looking for products with limited irritation triggers. It doesn’t have any specific scent apart from a typical vegetable oil scent.

All in all, I think that many people will like this oil cleanser for a short and not complicated ingredients list. On the other hand, seeing the price tag of 21.99US$ is a bit high in my eyes, regarding that it is mostly vegetable oil used here. Some people might think that it is actually cheaper to mix up your own oil cleanser using some plant-based oils. What are your thoughts on this?

Have you tried any products from iUnik, yet?

    This oil is on the thicker side and is great for people with dry skin. It emulsifies nicely but not completely and leaves skin with pleasant feel of hydration with a very thin layer of oiliness. For people with oily skin… look elsewhere.
