This is a long overdue post, that I really don't know why I never finished before, but since I'm nearly out of my current bottle I figured I better get it up now. This is one of the very first cleansing oils I ever used, but the first one that worked well for me and I actually enjoyed using. I've been moving on to different oil cleansers lately, but this one will always be special for showing me how enjoyable oil cleansing can really be.

The Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil is a "deep cleaning oil for smooth and healthy skin" according to Innisfree's website. This oil, like other cleansing oils, is used to remove dirt, sebum, makeup and sunscreen effectively from the skin. What makes oil cleansers unique to simply oil cleansing, is that oil cleansers contain emulsifiers that allow you to mix the oil with water while on your face, and rinse it away like a regular cleanser.
Ingredients: (copied from Innisfree) - CETYL ETHYLHEXANOATE, TRIETHYLHEXANOIN, POLYGLYCERYL-10 DIOLEATE, HYDROGENATED POLY(C6-14 OLEFIN), PEG-8 GLYCERYL ISOSTEARATE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAETHYLHEXANOATE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, PYRUS MALUS (APPLE) FRUIT EXTRACT, CITRUS UNSHIU PEEL EXTRACT, ORCHID EXTRACT, CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, CAMELLIA JAPONICA LEAF EXTRACT, OPUNTIA COCCINELLIFERA FRUIT EXTRACT, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, FRAGRANCE.
This cleansing oil comes in a sturdy clear, green tinted plastic bottle with a pump. I love the pump on this bottle - so much so that I've actually used these to move other products into that have a more crappy pump or no pump at all. It's well made, doesn't slip, and gives an even and clean dispense of product.
The oil itself, as the name suggests it might, really does have an apple scent to it. It's fresh and not overwhelming, but if you are highly sensitive to scents this may be bothersome to you.
Something I really loved about this oil is that it's so smooth and easy to work onto the skin. I use two pumps that I apply to my fingers and just apply it evenly to my face, and lightly over my eyelids and lashes lastly.
I use gentle massage to work the oil into my pores to loosen up dirt and hardened sebum, and to remove any makeup or sunscreen I'm wearing.
Something I love about this oil is that it's effective enough to not only soften up clogs in my skin, but it lubes my pores enough to allow them to pop out of my pores.
This is a great affordable cleansing oil, and it's one that's free from mineral oil for those who do struggle to find effective oils without that ingredient.
