For my oily on the inside, dry on the outside skin type, I was advised to not use oil cleansers. A doctor that I visited also advised the same as emulsifiers can clog pores. But the thing is, no other cleansers beat the convenience of oil cleansers. With a few pumps, it was thoroughly remove all traces of make up from my skin. Whereas for milk cleansers, I have to repeat the cleansing steps a few times before my skin is make up-free. I am currently using Drgeorgialee cleanser for sensitive skin as a make up remover. She prescribed it to me as she said my skin is a bit sensitive. With this cleanser I have to pump three times while cleansing the first round, remove with cotton pads, then use two pumps and repeat until the cotton pads are do not indicate any colour. This process usually takes me three or four and even five times if my make up is thick. This is why I usually prefer oil cleanser when I have thick make up on. However, I still wonder if I am sacrificing good skin for convenience when I am using oil cleansers.
I don't think I will give up on oil cleansers yet. Although I know it isn't good and might not suit my skin type, I think it is still the easiest alternative for removal of thick make up and when I am in a rush.
It is important to check the suitability of your cleanser for your skin type. If your skin is having adverse reactions to your cleanser, for example sudden breakouts, the cleanser might not suit your skin.
Although my skin used to take well to oil cleansers, my skin type changed while I lived overseas for a period of time. It is also important to observe your skin and skin type to ensure that your skin is kept in its best condition.
I will be doing a full review of drgeorgialee skincare cleanser for sensitive skin soon. Stay tuned!
