How many times have you washed your face, only to realise that you still have makeup on? If this happens to you often, then it’s time for you to invest in a cleansing oil. These oil-based formulas provide a deep cleanse, without stripping the skin’s natural moisture as many traditional cleansers do. Here are 5 amazing ones that you can try out.
