Honey to Milk

Oil Cleansers are hailed for their abilities to cleanse without disrupting our skin's lively microbiome. Unlike other oil cleansers, the oat protein (gluten-free) in our formula allows the cleanser to emulsify when in contact with water, transforming the cleanser from honey to milk. No need for a washcloth to remove, simply wash away with warm water.  

"Made with the brand’s famously herbaceous (and perpetually sold out) olive oil, it breaks down makeup and impurities while leaving your skin’s microbiome intact, which in turn helps your skin stay deeply moisturized and as glowingly healthy as a Greek god’s."

A cleanser That Ticks All the Boxes
Into the Gloss
I used to avoid oils and oil cleansers because I was worried about making my skin more oily, but I was so wrong. This cleanser is almost gel-like, it easily melts away dirt and makeup, and with avocado, olive, and grape seed oils, it feels velvety and moisturizing as I wash my skin. It leaves my skin luminos, beautifully clean, and refreshed. And the scent is heavenly.

    My favorite cleanser!

    The Oil Cleanser is gentle, effective and leaves my skin feeling great. I think I recently "graduated" to mature skin - I just can't take the aggressive scrubbing anymore (maybe it was a bad idea this whole time?). I love the smell, I love that it's packaged in glass and not plastic. Thank you, Wonder Valley!

    Rescued my skin!

    After some skin damage from another brand's product, my face was dry and red for over a year and nothing seemed to help, until I tried this cleanser + the face oil. And the face mask! All 3 of these products have rescued my damaged skin and returned it to what it was before, if not better. I'm so grateful and plan to use these products for as long as you continue to make them. Thank you, Wonder Valley!

    In love with this

    This is my second time buying this cleanser and with all of the many options out there in the great big world of luxurious facial care it says a lot to go back to a product for a second time. It melts in your fingertips! It removes my eye makeup and is also gentle and softens my skin — a winning combo! I love the glass bottle, I love the light scent, I love the warm afterglow, I love everything about it. Thank you WV <3

    Favorite Cleanser

    This is my favorite face wash! I have sensitive combination skin and have tried many cleansers. I used this product for 18 months about a year ago but due to it being out of stock I decided to try others. I found one I thought I liked but then I started having issues with my skin barrier. So I decided to go back to this cleanser. My skin is healing wonderfully and I remember why I loved it so much. The texture is like honey but still spreads well. It leaves my skin feeling clean but not dry or tight. The packaging is gorgeous and looks great on my vanity. I’m definitely back for good!

FAQ

Oil Cleansers are miracle workers for skincare: they offer a deep cleanse without stripping or drying your skin out or disrupting your microbiome (our top priority is to befriend and care for your microbiome, not cause any harm). The principle of oil cleansing is that oil attracts oil, and most of the gunk we want to get off our complexion is oil-based: SPF, makeup, product, and excess oils. Oil Cleansers are a magnet for removing all these impurities, helping to clear pores to control and prevent breakouts. It is important to note oil cleansers must be applied to dry skin. Water repels oil, so apply first to dry hands and a dry face, massage in for a few minutes, and rinse with warm water.

Our Oil Cleanser is in a league of its own. A typical oil cleanser has the consistency of a runny oil, like an olive or sunflower oil. They often require a washcloth to fully remove all the oil during cleansing. Our oil cleanser is formulated with a (gluten-free) oat protein that acts as an emulsifier. It gives our cleanser its inimitable thick consistency, which beyond deep cleansing, helps boost circulation and offer lymphatic drainage as you spend a few minutes massing it in. Once it comes in contact with water, it transforms from honey to milk and washes clean away – no need for a washcloth and no feeling of residue or excess product. It removes makeup, sunscreen, waterproof mascara, and excess oils beautifully and leaves your skin feeling soft, clean, and balanced.

We can’t speak to all oil cleansers, but our Oil Cleanser effectively removes SPF and stubborn waterproof mascara.

No! Oil Cleansers help unclog pores. What is clogging your pores is often hardened sebum (the oil our skin naturally produces) or excess product - an oil based cleanser will attract these impurities and help to decongest your complexion. This process is very gentle and natural for your skin, which is why we talk about working with your microbiome and your skin’s natural rhythms. You can absolutely unclog your pores using other cleansers, but they often contain harsh chemical-based ingredients or soaps that will strip your skin in the process, which sets off a chain of events for your skin to produce more oil to heal and hydrate itself.

Our Oil Cleanser can be used daily, morning and night. It's gentle enough not to disrupt your sensitive and lively microbiome but tough enough to remove daily build-up, makeup, and excess oils. If you only wash your face once a day, always opt for night.

Some oil cleansers cannot remove all of the day's impurities, which is why double cleansing is becoming popular. We firmly believe this is unnecessary with our product, and to do so would stripe your skin's beneficial oils. If you’d like to take it a little deeper, we recommend adding our Olive & Lotus Exfoliant once a week. It is meant to be mixed directly into the Oil Cleanser for a customizable exfoliation.
