Dear Klairs is a brand I have quickly come to really love. I’ve tried more and more of their products seeing a high standard across their products. I’ve always gotten a little bit excited every time I get one and see that they have new ones being released. One product in particular that I had wanted to try for a while is the Klairs Deep Cleansing Oil. 

The idea of using oil to clean your face may seem a little intimidating or even a bit counterproductive. However, it’s highly beneficial. Oils help remove excess make up, skin debris and believe it or not, oils. I used to have incredibly oily skin but I have found in the past year that the type of skin I have has changed slightly. Even when my skin was oily, I found oils to be the most beneficial type of cleanser for me.

One thing that always grabs my attention with Klairs products is the packaging, it has this minimal, eco kind of aesthetic to it which gives an impression of natural beauty. The bottle is a high quality, sturdy plastic in an amber brown with a black slimline pump.

There is a small clip stopper underneath the pump which prevents it from leaking in transit to you, but it’s also very handy to keep a hold of so you can take it with you in your skincare while travelling.

Your first impressions of oils would be that of a greasy feeling and not something you would want near your skin. However, despite being an oil, you don’t actually get that from it. It’s a thin oil that feels very light on the skin. There’s enough lubrication from it to massage your skin well.


One thing that really makes using this product so enjoyable is the fact Klairs Deep Cleansing Oil just smells delightful. It has a very natural scent combining herbs and fruit. This has become a product I use as part of my morning routine, purely because I quite enjoy massaging my face to wake me up in the morning and the scent from this really helps and makes it a relaxing process for me. It may be a little strong for those with sensitive noses, but for me personally, it’s a lovely little scent.

Double cleansing has become a more and more popular aspect to a skincare routine. Usually using an oil based cleanser initially and a separate cleanser of a different formula as a follow up. This combination allows for your skin to get really clean but isn’t always necessary to be done every single time you do your skincare. I only ever double cleanse in the evening if I have been wearing make up that day, as I don’t want to over cleanse my face when it isn’t necessary for it. So, the Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is used in this situation for me. I find it easily takes off face make up, lip make up (though not always the stronger tints in some cases) and eye make up. I have a few waterproof mascaras that I find it lifts well, if anything on occasion I might have to cleanse the eye area twice to fully remove some of it.

I’ve been so impressed with this cleanser and is definitely one of the top oil cleansers I’ve used out of both Western and Korean branded ones. It does the job it’s set out to do. It gently cleanses your face while removing make up. I’ve found over my testing period of using this, that it’s improved my skin texture slightly. My skin has more of an overall glow, especially to the cheek area, it just feels like my whole face is glowing with kind of minimal effort in a way.

If you’re a little apprehensive about trying out oil on your skin, this may help you ease into them. It’s so mild and gentle on the skin and once cleaned away, it doesn’t leave any stickiness or residue.
