The Perfect Cleansing Oil For Every Skin Type

By  | 

As someone with super oily and sensitive skin, I have always stayed away from applying oils—of any kind—on my face. I would always be scared of my skin breaking out into acne and painful pimples after massaging any kind of oil on my face before going to bed. But, as I grew up, I realised that all you need is the right kind of oil to make your skin feel and look smooth, healthy, and radiant.

Cleansing oils can help get rid of excess sebum, oil, and dirt from your face. They also help in removing makeup and make your skin look well-hydrated and flawless.

Regardless of the kind of skin you have, providing it with moisture and keeping it hydrated is a must. Below are the different kinds of skin types, and the perfect cleansing oils that suit each one of them.

P.S. In case you’re wondering how to use a cleansing oil, check out our review of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil.


Waking up with dry flaky skin is the worst, right? It is vital to give your skin some much-needed moisture and keep it well-hydrated all day long. If you have dry skin, use these oil cleansers for smooth skin:

biotique almond cleansing oil

Biotique Bio Almond Oil Soothing Face & Eye Make-up Cleanser (Rs 131)

Innisfree apple seed cleansing oil

Innisfree Apple Seed Cleansing Oil (Rs 1,000)

khadi olive oil

Yes, your oily skin, too, needs oil! Your skin type needs the right kind of moisture, and that is why you need a cleansing oil to stay hydrated while you get rid of excess sebum and dirt particles. But make sure that you use something light in texture. Here are some options:

neutrogena ultra light cleansing oil

Neutrogena Ultra-Light Cleansing Oil (Rs 1,376)

innisfree green tea cleansing oil

Innisfree Green Tea Fresh Cleansing Oil (Rs 1,400)


If you have combination skin, that means you have an oily T-Zone with the rest of your face being either dry or normal. You can go for some of these options:

bare minerals cleansing oil

BareMinerals Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil (Rs 2,111)

dermalogica precleanse cleansing oil


If you have normal skin, you are truly blessed, ladies. But not having to deal with either dry and flaky skin or oily and acne-prone skin doesn’t mean that you need not take care of it. Give one of these cleansers a try:

biotique pineapple cleansing oil

Biotique Bio Pineapple Oil Control Foaming Face Cleanser (Rs 140)

dhc deep cleansing oil

bobbi brown cleansing oil
