[Review] Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil

Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Review:

A Sephora clerk used this product on me when I asked her to create a daily K-Beauty regiment for me to follow that was 4-5 steps. This was the first step in the regiment, which was for cleansing my skin and removing makeup. It serves as the “double cleanse” step that one takes in a K-Beauty routine. This was one of my favorite items she used on me during the service and I purchased it because I loved the texture and scent.


The Cleansing Oil can be used for multiple purposes including removing makeup, anti-aging, reducing redness, correcting dullness and/or uneven skin texture, help combat acne/blemishes, and control oiliness.

Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Review:

Initially I expressed some concerns about applying an oil-based product on my face when I’ve used cream or gel washes to cleanse my face. But I’ve learned that using the right type of oils can help introduce and retain moisture in your skin without triggering excess oil production. The Tatcha oil is no exception. The camellia fragrance is light and not overbearing to use on my skin.

As a makeup remover, it works quite well – I like to rub it onto my skin in circular motions to help remove makeup before I wash it off. My skin feels hydrated, looks smoother after a few uses, and feels soft.

Even if I encounter an occasional breakout, the product does not irritate or worsen the blemish; if used in conjunction with acne treatment products, the skin near the blemish does not become dry and flaky. (This is a common side effect I experienced when using acne treatment products and my original face wash – nearby skin was prone to being dry and flaky due to the harsh ingredients in the acne treatment, which forced me to constantly reapply makeup and lotion throughout the day to avoid looking too dry.)

After using the face oil, my skin is hydrated enough to prevent flakiness but does not mess with the acne spot treatment products, in terms of effectiveness.

I recommend washing your face with this for 20 seconds at least so you can get the full benefits for cleansing and makeup removal – any shorter may result in less than ideal outcome.

I’ve used it for stubborn eye makeup and I recommend that you keep your eyes closed tightly, gently massage over the areas a few times, then rinse immediately.

I would definitely repurchase this product again. It is very effective as a cleanser and makeup remover. The product is quite light for an oil and the scent is light and pleasant. This product can be used for all types, according to Sephora’s site, but I definitely recommend it for normal and dry skin types.
