The moment I washed this oil off my face for the first time, I gasped, "wow," because I've never had any oil wash off as cleanly as this one. And it really did what I wanted it to do, which is to deeeeeeeep clean my pores, which felt cleaner than any other time after I washed, while my skin still felt soft and plump and not dried out at all.

So I called this my "Vacuum Cleaner" because -- well -- it vacuums like a mofo. I used a base of Rice Bran Oil in here for its rich concentration in B vitamins and Vitamin E for soft, healthy skin, then added in Castor Oil as it is good for acne, and finally, a dash of Hazelnut Oil, as its high concentration of tannins makes its astringent and thus good for oil control. Also, despite my originally formulating this for oily skin, I've found that it works well for all skin types, including mine which is extremely dry.

Try a travel size of the Oil Cleanser that will change how you think about oils on your skin forever.

  • Oil control
  • Nudges oil-based impurities to the surface without painful and irritating extractions
  • Removes makeup and sunscreen completely
  • Deep cleansing
  • Washes off completely, does not leave sticky feeling on skin

Apply to DRY skin. Massage a half-pea sized drop onto a dry face, then rinse off with warm water. Do NOT get product in the bottle wet, or it will compromise the effectiveness of the product and possibly destroy the preservation system.

Ingredients: Rice Bran Oil, Polysorbate 80, Castor Oil, Hazelnut Oil.

Perfect for me and my hubs

I started using this on my normal/somewhat dry skin as a cleanser a few weeks ago, either with a toner/milk or a face wash in the shower after, and love the way it feels both massaging on and rinsing off - so fresh and so clean! I don't have issues with breakouts but do have some milia which I swear it is helping to draw out and minimize. My face feels super clean and refreshed, and not at all tight, after using and has a smoother, tighter complexion after two weeks of use. My husband recently started sneak using it as well - he has very oily skin and is prone to whiteheads/blackheads here and there (so, total opposite of my skin type). He came clean (no pun intended) a few days ago and this is now sitting out in the middle of our twin sinks for daily use lol. It is truly amazing how this magic potion addresses both of our skin types and issues so well.

Very nice

I'm new to the double cleanse but so far I'm a fan. I only do it 2x/week I dont feel like I need more than that, plus I'm kinda lazy. The oil provides nice slip for the gua sha stone massage (still learning how to use) which feels awesome. My skin is nice and soft after and no gook in my pores. Full size will last me a long time since I dont use it everday.

Blown Away

When I heard people raving about using *oil* to clean their faces, I figured it was a scam. Clearly this demonstrates my skincare ignorance loud and clear. I used the Vacuum Cleansing Oil only because a sample size arrived in a shipment, and I figured "don't knock it till ya try it." I fully confess to the error of my uninformed pre-VCO beliefs! After VCO, my face feels cleaner than after using standard soap, my pores are less visible (as if they've been, ahem, vacuumed), and yet my skin feels hydrated -- not dried out and pruny like after harsher pore-cleansing products. Moments after using the sample size and realizing the error of my initial expectations, I bought three full sizes (b/c free shipping, you know).

Great for guasha!

I love this oil! I use it a few times a week for facial guasha. It leaves my fave feeling smooth and hydrated. The oil washes off easily and completely. I just purchased a full sized product.

Shockingly effective

I’m not a skincare guru, so I had never heard of oil being used for cleaning anything other than wood. I have loved every SB project I ever used, though, so I gave the Vacuum Cleansing Oil a try because the claims about decreasing the size of pores. This skeptic is a convert! The cleanser not only helped with pore size, it also left my skin feeling both clean AND hydrated - something I’ve never felt before. I LOVE this product!
