Klairs - Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil - Review

8:00 AM

I reviewed the scrub version of this product and now here comes its sibling :


What the brand says

Special cleansing oil for special skin, Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil

It is not just a cleansing oil, but the combination of natural black grains. Ingredients extracted from the nature will gently take care of your skin.
1. Black Bean Oil Black bean helps to control the sebum production, increases the skin elasticity and provides a soothing effect.
2. Black Sesame Oil Black sesame prevents dehydration and skin aging while providing powerful antioxidant effects through various useful components such as Beta-carotene, Rinolenic acid, Sesamin, Sesaminol and Tocopherol.
3. Black Currant Seed Oil Black Current Seed Oil strengthens the skins protective layer to prevent the evaporation of moisture from the skin. It promotes skin cell regeneration and provides antioxidant effects by containing various minerals.

This Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is great if:
  • If you have rough skin by blackheads and dead skin cells
  • If you have dry or sensitive skin
  • If you want the skin care effect while cleansing
  • If you are looking for cleanser to clean out pores

The packaging

You get 150 ml of product coming in a simple but sleek plastic bottle.  I got picture of this, when I first got it but they were busted so, as you can see, in those pictures, I'm almost out of it. The wrapping paper around my bottle is slightly coming off but that's only because I tend to remove my makeup in the shower. 

 It also comes with a classic pump which delivers enough product in one pump, when you first get it, it also comes with a stopper (check out the unboxing article to see what I'm talking about).

The product

Here's a few pumps of the product on my hand to show you how it actually looks. It's a clear lightweight oil. The formula glides over your skin without tugging at it and as the name of it describe it, it's actually very gentle on your skin. You're supposed to get a few pumps into your palms, put it on your dry face and massage the product to remove all your makeup and skin impurities. Then, rinse it off with a lukewarm water (the brand and I recommend as well not to wipe it off with a cloth or wipe, all of the product won't come off !).
When you rinse with water, the product turns a milky white consistency until it goes off.

Where to get it

This product is exclusively sold at Wishtrend, and I believe it's actually one of their own brands.
You can get it here for 22,90$.

My thoughts

I got this product in my wishbox purchased here and I was glad to get a new makeup remover. I used to use Shu Uemura's expensive one back in the days and I never got myself to get another one of those after I ran out of it. Klair's Gentle balck deep cleansing oil does a good job of removing my makeup. I wear extremely waterproof eyeliner (demo here with Klairs in action) and it removed that eyeliner and my mascara (Benefit's They're Real) perfectly. I usually took 2 to 3 pumps without thinking about it, and I realized that when I got too much product it's a bit harder to get it off. I do recommend only getting 2 pumps and really rinsing it off with water. 
As I mentioned earlier, the formula is really lightweight, gliding and gentle on the skin. After using it, my skin didn't feel tight meaning that I didn't rip my skin from its moisture but it didn't oil me up either, so don't be scared of using oils. As I said in this article, oils are great to use even for oily skin. If you have combination skin like I do, this product is perfect because it doesn't excessively moisture your skin but it doesn't dry it up either.
I mentioned the fact it took a bit of work to get it off and it might be why I still have a bit of makeup left on my skin afterwards. I did the white towel trick : Wiping (I know it's bad but it was an experiment) my face with a white towel to see if there's any makeup left. And there was, it's maybe because I use too much product but I feel like although I can't see it, there is makeup mixed with the oil on the surface of my skin. It wasn't that much of a problem because I always double cleanse (using a foam cleanser after the makeup remover) anyways to get all of my makeup off.



  • Lightweight
  • Gentle
  • Isn't greasy
  • Doesn't strip the face
  • Moisturizing


  • Can take a bit of time to remove the product
  • Residue of makeup found the skin, double cleansing is necessary 

 Effects on combination/acne-prone skin

I used it during winter time here in Paris, my combination skin turned to dehydrated cheeks and normal t-zone. As I said, this didn't dry me up nor did it oil me up. I would say that it's an ideal product if you have combination skin. As for the acne-prone part, this product didn't break me out, and if anything, my skin hasn't been this good for a good while. (Of course, I'm not saying that this cleared up my skin because the other products I used did that but it didn't make it bad that's for sure).

Conclusion for combination/acne-prone skin : Go for it !

    If you read what the brand said about the product and then my thoughts about it, you'll notice that the product does everything it says it does.

    You can also use it in combination with its sister the Gentle Black Deep Cleansing scrub that I reviewed here. They work really well together and provide mild deep cleansing if you mix the oil with the scrub and massage it into your skin.
