Hello my pumpkins! Today, I am sharing with you my Klairs cleansing oil review. I actually received this product as a gift from Wishtrend and they nicely offered a 10% discount on it. The offer expires on the 15th of March, so in 3 days, and is only available on Amazon [link below]. I actually got so ecstatic when I received this product because I heard a lot of positive things about the brand and I’ve been really into Korean skincare lately.

Packaging 4.5/5

This cleansing oil comes in a very simple bottle with a pump and has all of the information written on an off-white label that wraps the whole bottle. I think the packaging looks very aesthetic and I actually love how it looks on my top shelf. I love the colour of the bottle and pump, it’s kind of like a deep brown and it matches well with the off-white label. The packaging is indeed simple but it still doesn’t look boring at all and it still looks extremely photogenic!

The pump makes the application so easy and more practical. I also love that it came with a sort of blocker that allows the product not to spill everywhere, which makes it travel-friendly! I guess, the only downside is that the packaging is not eco-friendly, but it is recyclable.

Formula 5/5

Concerning the formula, this cleanser performs exactly like it claims. It deeply cleanses the skin while keeping it super nourished and moisturized. It’s actually very gentle yet effectively removes any traces of makeup. I love to use this cleanser as my first step in my cleansing routine even if I don’t have any makeup on. Sometimes my skin feels very oily and dirty and this, paired with my regular Cosrx cleanser, does an amazing job at keeping my skin so clean and bright without making my skin feel  dry. I also noticed that since I started using this as my cleanser along with my regular cleanser, my blackheads have completely vanished. I definitely think, it’s doing a great job at cleaning my skin more deeply when it needs it.

Take in consideration that I have a combination skin and my skin can sometimes feel  dry and/or oily. When my skin feels dry, I only use my Cosrx cleanser in the morning but when my skin feels oily, I use both products.

Concerning the scent, it has a really light fragrance that is almost non-existent but that is so soothing. It personally does not bother me at all but I thought I should mention it.

Conclusion – Klairs cleansing oil review 9.5/10

To conclude, I really LOVE this cleansing oil. It performs like a dream and the packaging is very nice. I love that the product is vegan and I am definitely going to keep using it to remove my makeup and as a first cleanser in my AM/PM routine. This was my first time trying the brand and I am really satisfied with the results. I definitely think Klairs deserves more recognition and it really encouraged to try more of their products.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this review. If you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to subscribe to my mailing list.
