Our Borealis Cleansing Oil was created by combining ancient Dene botanical knowledge with modern cosmetic science. In recent years, oil cleansing methods have became increasingly popular as a gentle alternative to removing make-up and impurities from your skin. We have taken this method of facial cleansing next level by infusing our cleansing oils with spruce gum/pitch which our ancestors have used topically since time immemorial due to its high levels antimicrobial + antiseptic properties.
If you are concerned about oil cleansing causing acne, there is no need to worry because we have formulated our Spruce Gum Infused Cleansing Oil with oils that will not clog your pores and with regular use, you should see a reduction in acne.
To use our oil cleanser, apply a few drops of the cleanser into your hand and gently massage into your skin until makeup is dissolved and then wipe the oil away with a warm, wet cloth to reveal cleansed, hydrated, replenished skin! Our Borealis Cleansing Oil works best in combination with a complete skincare regime including our Charcoal Aloe Facial Bar, Dandelion + Horsetail Facial Serum, and Hemp Berry Deep Glow Facial Oil.

I really, really like this cleanser. My skin is clear and soft, and not dried out at all! It works to remove makeup and clearly cleans effectively as well, as my skin is proving. I'll definitely be re-ordering it.
My only 'complaint' (and that's a strong word) is that it stings my eyes juuuuust a little bit so I have to be really careful when removing my eye makeup.
