DHC’s bestselling, cult-classic Deep Cleansing Oil is truly one of a kind. The original Japanese first step oil cleanser melts away makeup and dissolves impurities, leaving your skin clean, soft and radiant.      

The 100% organic olive-oil based formulation works on the scientific premise that “like attracts like.” Applied with dry hands on your dry face, this rich, naturally golden-hued olive oil-based cleanser binds with dirt and effortlessly breaks down sunscreen, sebum and stubborn makeup, like waterproof mascara and eyeliner, without clogging your pores. The water-soluble formula rinses away with zero oily residue. Its silky feel and delicate, natural rosemary aroma make washing your face feel like a luxurious spa experience.

This botanical formulation features antioxidant-rich organic olive oil and vitamin E to hydrate, soften and protect, and rosemary leaf oil to invigorate and refresh. Also works great as a makeup brush cleaner.

Ideal for all skin types.

From $16.00 $16.00 - $31.50 To $31.50

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Cleansing Oil is Magic I am a senior woman and actress. I am often called upon the wear heavy, waterproof make-up on stage. This marvelous product is the only one I have found that is gentle enough for an older person's skin and yet strong enough to remove heavy eye and stage make-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cleansing oil!! I’ve been using this oil for years. I’ve tried many other brands which were more expensive and they did not compare. It removes all my makeup and mascara. Hands down best cleansing oil out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gently cleans away makeup. I have been using the Deep Cleansing Oil for a few years now. It quickly and gently removes all my makeup, including more stubborn eye makeup. My skin feels clean and soft after using it, so I don’t use any soap afterwards. I love this oil.

Can you use this product with a Foreo brush?

Asked by: Emily C
Hello. Because we're unfamiliar with the Foreo Brush you're inquiring about, we're unable to speculate what it is or how it works; however, we strongly suggest using your hands to apply and massage Deep Cleansing Oil. Please remember that Deep Cleansing Oil dispensed into dry hands and applied to dry skin. Your hands are the best tools because they can be used to move the product thoroughly over your complexion while gently stimulating pores and dislodging oily buildup. We hope this suggestion proves to be useful and thank you for choosing DHC for your skincare needs. Have a beautiful day!

Can this be used as a moisturizer if I want to leave on face

Asked by: Aboyer
Hello! Although Deep Cleansing Oil is incredibly moisturizing and conditioning, it's not meant to be used as a moisturizer. We strongly recommend our Olive Virgin Oil instead. Our signature product Olive Virgin Oil, is made from 100% organic olives and filtered to remove pore-clogging sediment, making it the perfect, natural moisturizer. Thank you for choosing DHC and have a beautiful day!

Can I use deep cleansing oil as a pre-wash oil cleanse on my hair?

Asked by: boba48
Hello! Absolutely! Using Deep Cleansing Oil as a "pre-wash" works beautifully. It gently dissolves buildup, without stripping the hair like many clarifying products do. We recommend parting the hair and depositing a drop, moving back the part and applying another one, and so on. Continue to do this over your entire scalp, then get you fingers in there and massage! Really work the product throughout the scalp and roots of the hair, then finish up by performing a shampoo cleanse. Remember to apply cleansing oil to a DRY scalp/hair. The dirtier your scalp/hair is, the better ;)

Is this product Hypoallergenic?

Asked by: Keith
Hello! At DHC, we strive to be transparent and realistic regarding product claims, while taking into consideration that skin types, allergies, and tolerance to ingredients differ greatly amongst individuals. "hypoallergenic" is an industry catch-phrase referring to a product that's free of ingredients perceived as being non-irritating. Because we believe there are too many variables to consider when making such a statement, and the term "hypoallergenic" is not an FDA approved claim, we do not use it to describe our products.

Do I use the oil cleanser and then the foaming wash? 

Asked by: Mary ann DAgostino
Hello! Cleansing oils have the unique ability to meld with unwanted oil, makeup, and sunscreen more effectively than any cleanser requiring dampened skin. The key is the oil base. Because oil attracts oil, it can bind with long-wearing products that adhere to the skin, along with oil in the pores. Cleansing oils are dispensed into dry hands and massaged over dry skin. Because of the oil-in-water formulation, they can be rinsed away easily without leaving an oily feeling behind. It's our suggestion that you continue your cleansing routine with a lather-based cleanser. Foaming cleansers (including soap and gel cleansers) use surfactants to create light friction on the skin’s surface, resulting in lather. Lather works to lift fine dirt and debris away from the skin's surface, providing a refining benefit. A cleansing routine including both an oil and lathering cleanser, ensures your skin is achieving the most thorough cleansing possible.
