Perfect Cleansing Oil
Paula's Choice Skincare offers a cleanser for just about every skin type in its expansive line, but has never had an oil cleanser… until now. The result is a gentle but highly effective option that's an excellent choice for all skin types, particularly dry and sensitive skin.
Perfect Cleansing Oil comes in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser and overcap. Just a couple of pumps are all you need to smooth over your face and eye area, then you apply water. What starts as a silky, luxurious oil becomes a milky emulsion that quickly melts away dirt, debris, and makeup (even waterproof formulas) when water is added.
Although this is an oil, it contains special emulsifiers that allow it to rinse cleanly, so there's no greasy residue whatsoever. Instead, skin is left noticeably softer and more radiant, perfectly prepped for the rest of your skincare routine.
Paula's Choice Skincare selected nourishing plant oils that soothe skin, yet work quickly to remove makeup and debris. Many cleansing oils contain potentially-irritating essential oils, but Paula's Choice Skincare bypasses these for gentle non-fragrant plant oils like sunflower, coconut, jojoba, meadowfoam, and grape seed oils.
Also included are gentle cleansers for an effective clean that won't dry out skin, making this an all-around excellent option for removing all types of makeup while gently cleansing. It's also "perfect" for those who like doing a double cleanse.
- Milky emulsion melts away dirt, debris, and waterproof makeup.

Infused with five plant oils specifically chosen for their ability to break down makeup and facial debris, this luxe-feeling cleansing oil nurtures skin’s moisture balance. The fragrance-free formula is gentle, yet works incredibly fast, leaving nothing but silky, clean skin.
Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance
Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.
As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.
Paulas Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.
Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.
Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedias criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
