Description

Description

What It Does:

● Melts away makeup, including waterproof mascaras
● Dissolves oil and debris that can clog pores
● Diminishes fine lines and restores radiance
● Leaved skin glowing and soft, never greasy or stripped.

Who It’s For:

All skin types and all skin concerns as a makeup remover and anti-aging cleanser

How It Works:

Oil cleansing is an ancient practice. However, not all oils are created equal. We’ve created a perfect blend of strategically selected high-quality oils for a results-driven anti-aging cleansing experience that will leave your skin noticeably healthier-looking.

Unlike many soaps or cream cleansers, the Nutritive Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover has the ability to break up pore-clogging sebum, debris, and makeup without disrupting the pH of the skin. Once it’s rinsed away, skin is clean, clear of buildup and makeup, and yet it will be calm and won’t have the tight feeling that indicates your skin has been stripped of its protective pH balanced barrier. This is essential for preventing premature aging and damage.

We’ve infused this cleanser with anti-aging nutrients to brighten and even out skin tone and texture including resveratrol, DMAE, CoQ10, and powerful antioxidants like vitamin E, green tea extract, and alpha lipoic acid to name just a few. It can be used as a daily cleanser or makeup remover and is a wonderful opportunity to treat your skin to a mini massage as you cleanse, which will further help to improve tone and circulation.

    This cleanser is awesome! I alternate between this and the Salicylic Cleanser (I love them both and have found it to be the perfect balance, especially in the winter when it’s so dry outside). I use this at night because it does an amazing job of removing makeup (even waterproof mascara). My skin feels so soft after using. Great product!

    Love this cleanser! In the past, I struggled to find something that would be sensitive enough for my skin (rosacea) yet do a good job of cleansing. This has been perfect from day 1: gentle, effective, and a pleasure to use. I recently started using this with a Clarisonic and have been pleased with the results.

    I love this cleanser. I am just about to order my second bottle. It is so gentle yet does the job of removing all traces of makeup. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth, but not one bit greasy.

    I have used several products from their line and really like all of them. I use this cleanser in the evening and it removes all makeup and leaves skin feeling very smooth. Kate Ryan’s customer service is also very responsive.

    I love this face wash! I have Rosacea and trying to find a face wash that doesn’t irritate my skin has been a challenge. This wash is gentle but it gets your face clean. I don’t even use a separate eye make up remover, it takes that off too with no eye stinging. My face is softer now and not dull looking like it used to be. It feels so soft and almost silky when you’re washing your face!

    It’s official: I cannot live without this. I ran out a few weeks ago and decided to see if it was really as great as I was thinking it was. The answer is yes, yes, yes! Not only is this both gentle and thorough as a makeup remover, as a cleanser it leaves my skin feeling as fresh and smooth as if it has been exfoliated. It really feels as though I’m rinsing each long day away when I’m done. Corny but true!

    This cleanser has been a very pleasant surprise.

    I have extremely sensitive skin with rosacea, so much so that for a two year period, I could only wash my face with water. Any cleanser, no matter how gentle, would irritate and cause a tight painful feeling with additional redness.

    I eventually found a very simple natural oil cleanser that worked, and have been faithful to it for a couple of years. But it’s expensive, and lately I’ve been feeling like my skin isn’t responding as well to it. I was dreading the search for another cleanser.

    I’ve had such great luck with Kate Ryan products, I decided to try their cleanser first, and it has not let me down! Just one tiny drop is needed, and my skin feels clean and smooth, but also moist and not irritated in the slightest. I’m very very happy with the product.

    One thing I will mention, it does smell slightly like one of the oil ingredients is rancid. It could also just be the smell of an oil that I’m not familiar with, but my first impression on opening the bottle was a bit of a rancid oil smell. Not strong at all, but noticeable. It doesn’t affect the performance, and isn’t a big deal, but worth mentioning.

    I have been using this product for about a month now and am thrilled with the results! I’m obsessed with the soft feeling and smooth texture it brings to my dry winter skin!!

    This cleanser is amazing! It cleans well and leaves the skin very soft. It is also very gentle; even when it went into the my eye once and it caused no irritation whatsoever. If anything, my eye felt more lubricated. I use it twice a day and I haven’t had any breakouts even though there is oil in this product. This is the best cleanser I’ve ever used!

    I was not sure how to feel about a cleanser that may be oily, but was soon won over. It is gentle on the skin, and makes my skin feel very clean and soft. While I am a bit breakout prone, and was concerned this may add to that issue, in fact I have not had any breakouts since using the entire line!

    I LOVE this cleanser! Who knew that cleaning my face with oil would actually work?? Nutritive Oil Cleanser removes my make-up and leaves my skin feeling very soft. I find that this cleanser is even gentle enough to remove mascara and eyeliner. I also use the Salicylic Cleanser and I find the combination of the two of them leaves me with perfect skin – not too dry and not too oily. I have been incredibly happy with the products and service I have received from Kate Ryan Skincare – I will never go back to store or department store brands again!

    Cleansing my skin without using soap – who knew?? I have to admit that I was a bit of a skeptic as I am in my mid 50s and have used soap to cleanse my face daily my entire life. I was so surprised at how clean and moist my skin felt after using the Nutritive Oil Cleanser for the first time. Still skeptical, I used toner to be sure there was no dirt or film left – NOT A TRACE!! Now I recognize that my face is really clean after using the Nutritive Oil Cleanser, and, it doesn’t feel dry, tight, or irritated. It seems that the drying effects of soap on skin would be like a rubber band that gets stretched back and forth and eventually loses the original elasticity. As they say, “when you know better, you do better.” You have made a BELIEVER out of me!!

    Finally, I have found the perfect cleanser for my combination skin! I have always used cleansers that were combative with my acne-prone skin but they left my skin feeling like the Sahara Desert – really tight and dry. Now I alternate between the Salicylic Cleanser and the Nutritive Oil Cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling unbelievably soft and nourished. Love the addition of the Nutritive Oil Cleanser to my cleansing routine and I will never be without it! Thanks Kate Ryan Skincare!

Tips For Use

A little goes a long way. Our cleanser is formulated to dissolve skin oils, makeup and residues by using only a dime-sized amount. For removal of heavy makeup, consider a pre-rinse with plain warm water, or cleanse twice, using a small amount of product each time to provide the full benefit of the nutrients.

For acne prone skin, we recommend cleansing with Kate’s Salicylic Cleanser first and lightly cleansing again with our Nutritive Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover to restore the proper moisture balance and deliver excellent nutrition to the skin. If you have combination skin that is oily but then feels dry and tight after cleansing, this regimen is perfect for you!
