A while ago I was contacted by a Germany-based retailer for Korean cosmetics called LoveMyCosmetics to be part of their ambassador program for the Korean brand Klairs. By now those who are reading my blog for some time know how much I love the products from this brand. I almost tried all their products at least once and they never disappoint me. A good thing is also that Klairs frequently updates their products regarding their ingredients or their packaging and volume. I did review the Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil in the past, but I thought I might still retry it and see whether my opinion on this cleansing oil has changed or not:
Klairs is a Korean brand sold and by Wishtrend. It is eco-friendly, producing products which are animal-testing-free, vegan, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and artificial-color-free. Their products address people with sensitive skin and people who want to moisturize their skin. I reviewed some of their products before, like the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum or the Klairs Midnight Blue Cream, which both convinced me in their effects. I also love the Klairs Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, which by the way has been updated and improved, too. Their saying “Simple but Enough” really nails it and I think that many people will agree in that point with me.
If you never have heard of cleansing oils you surely missed out a thing. I love cleansing oils especially for removing makeup efficiently without making your skin dry. Especially people with dry skintypes are recommended to use an oil cleanser. I do use the double cleansing method when I wear makeup, which means that I use a makeup remover, like a cleansing balm or oil first and then wash again using foam or gel cleanser. The Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is perfectly fit for the first step.
The product comes packed in a cardboard box which is designed very minimalistic, typical for the brand Klairs. The brown colored plastic pump bottle of the cleansing oil has the same design. The descriptions on the product and packaging are written in Korean and English.
The Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil doesn’t come with many ingredients. The few are listed below and can be checked via COSDNA, too:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Isononyl Isononanoate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate , Isopropyl Myristate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil , Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Seed Oil , Tocopheryl Acetate , PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate , Polysorbate 20, Fragrance, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Carapa Guaianensis Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil
One glance on that list already reveals that the product mainly consists of different plant-based oils, like (black) sesame and black currant. Hence also the name “Deep Black”. Black Sesame oil is rich in antioxidants whereas black currant contains a bunch of vitamins and minerals. Apart from the oils there is shea butter included, too. Since it contains so many oils it may be irritant to people with sensitive or acne prone skin. Please be sure to do a patch test of the product before starting to use it regularly.
Since the product comes in a pump container it is super easy to use, too. Just take 2 pumps of the oil and apply it over your face and massage it gently. Afterwards wash it of with lukewarm water for 2 or 3 times until the oil emulsified and is washed off. You can use a foam cleanser or cleansing gel afterwards. The oil is quite runny, but has a nice scent. To me it smells like sweet black tea and I really love the scent a lot and loved it two years ago as much as now.
The pump comes with a clip to prevent the pump from being pushed down. I love this clip, especially if you want to take the bottle with you on vacation for example. It makes it much more secure to take along without spilling.
Since it is a cleansing oil it is super effective in removing makeup. Plus afterwards the skin doesn’t feel tight or “Squeacky Clean”, but still nourished.
The Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is a very good and gentle makeup remover and I can recommend it for dry skintypes and people who prefer the double cleansing method. The oils prevent the skin to feel dried out and the scent is also really nice. The oil retails for 23,95 € from LoveMyCosmetics.
