Facial Cleansing is a crucial step in maintaining healthy, clean skin.

To effectively remove the oil, dirt, makeup, and sunscreen that accumulate on your skin throughout the day, it's essential to use a facial cleanser before applying any skin care products. These cleansers are specially formulated to eliminate oily impurities. In this article, we explore the advantages and unique features of Oil-type cleansing (Cleansing Oil). Known for its potent cleansing power, cleansing oil swiftly removes makeup and dirt while remaining gentle on your skin. If you haven't tried cleansing oil yet, discover why it's a favorite among many and how it can enhance your skin care routine.

1. Faicial Cleansing Oil vs. Other Types of Cleansing

There are many types of cleansing products beyond Oil-type. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each type of cleansing.


Gel-Type Cleansers

Gel-type cleansers are known for their smooth application and minimal friction, which helps reduce skin irritation. While their cleansing power may be weaker compared to cleansing oils or balms, they offer a gentle and effective option for daily use.

Lotion and Sheet Cleansers

Lotion or sheet cleansers involve applying a special lotion to a cotton pad or using pre-soaked sheets to wipe away impurities. While they are incredibly convenient and easy to use, they can cause more friction on the skin and generally have a weaker cleansing power compared to other types.

Cleansing Milk

Cleansing milk contains fewer oil components, making it a gentle option with milder cleansing power. It's ideal for those with light makeup. However, for stubborn point makeup like eyeliner and mascara, you’ll need a separate, dedicated cleanser for effective removal.

Cleansing Cream

Cleansing cream is a rich, thick formula that blends seamlessly into makeup, making it easy to remove. Though it requires a bit more time to work in and has slightly lower cleansing power compared to cleansing balms or oils, it provides a gentle and thorough cleanse. Ideal for those seeking a soft, effective cleansing solution.

Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balm starts as a semi-solid and melts into an oil-like substance upon contact with the skin, delivering high cleansing power. To maintain its quality and prevent bacterial growth, always use a spatula to keep water out of the balm. This ensures a clean, luxurious experience every time.

Facial Cleansing Oil

Facial cleansing oil provides the highest cleansing power, effortlessly removing heavy makeup and targeting point makeup. It’s especially popular for those concerned with pore care. However, due to its strength, it’s crucial to minimize cleansing time and avoid excessive rubbing to prevent skin irritation. Enjoy a smooth and effective cleanse with cleansing oil while maintaining your skin’s health.

1. Superior Cleansing Power to Remove Makeup Residue and Keratin Plugs

FANCL's unique formula includes matured hop extract, which helps remove keratin plugs, and green tea extract, which tightens the skin. The aged hop extract softens keratin, which makes up about 70% of keratin plugs, allowing it to be rinsed away with water. Additionally, the green tea extract tightens the skin around pores, enhancing overall skin appearance.


2) Proprietary Oil That Shields Skin Barrier and Enhances Moisture

The barrier function of the skin was tested using pigments in Japan. Our original cleansing oil formulation maintains this barrier, as the pigment does not penetrate the stratum corneum, even after cleansing. While effectively removing dirt, this cleansing oil also protects the skin's natural moisture. Continued use increases the skin's moisture content, leading to a beautifully textured, first-class complexion. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness (*Efficacy evaluation tests have been conducted in Japan).


The skin's surface barrier function protects against external stimuli but is delicate and easily damaged by friction and irritation. FANCL's unique cleansing ingredients help maintain this natural barrier, ensuring your skin becomes more refreshed and moisturized with regular use.

3) Gentle Texture to Minimize Skin Friction

Our thick cleansing oil effortlessly lifts makeup off your skin. Upon contact with water, it transforms into a smooth, residue-free formula that rinses off quickly. Enjoy a frictionless, impressive experience that leaves your skin clean and refreshed, without any irritation. Makeup residue can cause skin problems. For beautiful, healthy skin, it's crucial to remove makeup daily without stressing your skin. We recommend "Mild Cleansing Oil" for its excellent makeup removal and gentle care.
