Why it’s awesome
Intentionally formulated to:
- exclude known irritants, including fragrance
- Include plant oils high in barrier strengthening fatty acid linoleic acid
- Include key emulsifiers to avoid residue oil build up on the skin
- Include skin-soothing and anti inflammatory green tea and bisabolol
Cleansing is an important step in caring for your skin, but can also be one of the most problematic steps if you have sensitive skin. It is important to remove built up dirt, including sunscreen and make-up, but over-cleansing can damage the skins barrier function and lead to or worsen sensitive areas. Likewise, an ineffective cleanser can contribute to sensitivity by not removing pore-clogging ingredients – which may additionally contribute to the development of acne.
Oil cleansers are an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin. Although it may sound total BS to clean your skin with oil, it is actually a highly effective way of removing makeup and sunscreen without over-stripping your skin. Yep, chuck out all your make-up removers, micellar waters, and make-up removing wipes; chances are they were not that kind to your skin anyway! The oil dissolves make-up and sunscreen effortless, then emulsifies when water is added to give a creamy texture that is easily rinsed away with more water.
How to use
# Always patch test new products before first use
Place 2-3 pumps of face cleansing oil into the palm of your clean hands and gently massage all over your DRY face for a good 20-30 seconds. Ensure you include your eyes and lips if you had make-up on these areas. Then rinse well with warm water. Follow on with our face cream cleanser to complete your cleansing routine.
You should not experience any sensitivity, nor be left with stripped skin, but your make-up and sunscreen will be effectively removed.

I’ve never used a cleansing oil before, but now I am a convert! It leaves my skin feeling beautiful, clean and smooth without feeling oily. One pump goes a long way. I think the bottle will last a very long time too:)
SBK had stunned me with the amount of care and precision of the work put behind it's products. Being inclusive to sensitive skin, SBK had greatly helped my skin's overall glow. Thanks SBK!
I was kindly given the Cleansing Oil to test with removing my Heavy Photography Makeup. I found the oil easy to use and very effective with minimum effort as the consistency is so lovely to use. I followed on with the Cleanser which left my skin feeling fresh and very clean.
This is a gorgeous product that leaves my skin so very soft. I was confused by the concept of an oil cleanser but I am now a total convert. Beautiful quality with no added nasties - it’s great!
