There can be no denying that cleansing is one of the most important step in your skincare routine. First made popular by skincare giant Shu Uemura, cleansing oils have become all the rage. Unlike gel or foam cleansers that contain a certain percentage of water, cleansing oils do not – giving it a lighter density than water-based cleansers. The result is a smooth texture that sinks into your skin, melting away sebum and make-up.

Leveraging on the benefits of oil cleansers, Laneige’s Fresh Brightening and Perfect Pore Cleansing Oils claim to thoroughly cleanse your skin while also giving it a vitamin added boost. For starters, Laneige’s Fresh Brightening cleansing oil is infused with floral and fruity ingredients – grapefruit extract and apricot seed oil.

The Korean brand claims that these ingredients work as a superb exfoliator that promotes blood circulation, giving you an added glow after each wash! The inclusion of grapefruit extract supposedly soothes and calms the skin, while working to give your skin a boost of Vitamin C. No more need for supplements!

For troubled skin, opt for Laneige’s Perfect Pore Cleansing oil instead. Loaded with Vitamin A and C, the brand claims that this oil will remove toxins buried deep within the pores. The cleansing oil also boasts a myriad of bacteria-fighting ingredients such as lavender and chamomile, which will thoroughly melt any make-up and sebum according to the brand.

If you’re worried that adding oil to acne-prone skin will make it worse, you will be pleased to know that oil has been used as a home remedy for the pimple-prone since its uses have been discovered. The right oil will only give your skin a much-needed detox.

Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil and Laneige Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil, $48 each, is available at all Laneige stores. For more information, visit www.laneige.com.sg and follow the brand on Facebook.
