About Huxley Cleansing Oil
Up and coming Korean brand Huxley may have broke into the beauty scene with its wildly popular Oil Essence, but its other products are much raved about too. Here’s letting you in on a very promising one: Huxley Cleansing Oil; Deep Clean, Deep Moist.
Known for harnessing the power of moisture-binding prickly pear cactus that’s sourced from the Sahara Desert, Huxley’s Cleansing Oil is formulated to remove stubborn dirt and impurities lodged deep within pores, without stripping skin of its natural moisture. The product is also designed to moisturise and protect skin as it removes makeup and other grime.
Containing exclusive botanical ingredients, Huxley’s Cleansing Oil has a luxurious scent, and is best used together with the Huxley Cleansing Foam; Deep Clean, Deep Moist. Together, the duo is able to energise skin and promote its natural defenses.
Now that the products are finally in Singapore, we want to know if Huxley’s Cleansing Oil (and Cleansing Foam) lives up to these benefits. We asked our editor, as well as 20 Daily Vanity readers, to review the two cleansing products and share with us their honest opinions about them.
You can find the Huxley Cleansing Oil and Huxley Cleansing Foam on their official website for Singapore, or in-store at M Beauty at Metro Centrepoint. Huxley products can also be found at Skinx online store or their shop located at 1 Tanjong Pagar Plaza, #02-15, Singapore 082001.
Editor’s review on Huxley Cleansing Oil; Deep Clean, Deep Moist
I am a huge fan of cleansing oils because of how easy and effective it is for makeup removal, compared to other types of formulas. My strong preference makes me a long-time user of cleansing oils. I’ve tried several brands and eventually, I found one that I really like and have been sticking to it for many years.
The reason why I wanted to share this background with you is to let you know how picky I am with the cleansing oil I use, and that there’s already one that I am loyal too. What this means is that I am a critical reviewer that’s hard to sway when it comes to a cleansing oil review.
First impressions count, and it’s great that Huxley scored a solid first brownie point with me when it comes to the sleek and understated packaging the Cleansing Oil comes in. In a slim and sleek bottle, it makes it easy to hold and dispense the product – and which self-respecting beauty enthusiast will say no to such a beautiful product in her bathroom, and a great user experience?
Like the other Huxley products I’ve tried, the Cleansing Oil has a subtle, pleasant scent that is soothing and calming. In terms of texture, it has a smooth consistency that doesn’t feel as oily as regular cleansing oil. It forms a comforting, soothing, and almost-velvety layer over my skin when applied. All it took was one pump to dispense an adequate amount of product for the entire face.
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil is able to remove makeup easily, including stubborn ones like waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick. I am impressed by its cleansing efficacy; it is definitely one of the most effective cleansing oils that I’ve tried that’s able to remove tough makeup. But that’s not all. The product also leaves my skin feeling cleansed, moisturised, and supple. There’s no sense of dryness or tautness to my skin at all after I’ve rinsed it off.
Overall, Huxley’s Cleansing Oil offers a thorough cleanse without compromising on the sense of luxury in user experience. A worthy contender in the cleansing oil category? Definitely, yes.
For even better results, use Huxley’s Cleansing Oil together with its Cleansing Foam. It lathers up easily, forming a luxurious creamy foam that feels soothing on the skin. Apart from using it as part of the double-cleansing routine in the evening, I love using it in the morning because it works as a great perk-me-up for me, as it leaves my skin feeling soothed and looking bright.

See what reviewers say:
Nurul Jannah, 27, Combination skin
This cleansing oil removes everything from natural to thick makeup – waterproof mascara, eyeliner, hard-to-remove lipsticks are all gone like a breeze. It only takes a tiny amount to do so too! Huxley’s Cleansing Foam works very well with the Cleansing Oil, leaving skin feeling soft.
Jennifer Poh, 28, Combination skin
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil cleanses off tough waterproof makeup and is gentle to my skin. My skin feels thoroughly clean after double-cleansing. I like that my skin still feels moisturised after cleansing.
Maggie Tan, 25, Acne-prone
I had a really good experience using Huxley’s famous anti-gravity cream before and knew I would enjoy its other products. Huxley’s Cleansing Oil breaks down my makeup well, and I wear a full face of makeup with liquid foundation and powder. It is also effective in removing eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara without irritating my eyes or leaving behind an oily film on my eyelashes.
Tan Puay Wen, 29, Combination skin
It is able to remove stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara, eyeshadow and lip tint – I’m very amazed! I like the fragrance as it helps relax my senses while removing my makeup. I use Huxley’s Cleansing Foam after the Cleansing Oil for double-cleansing and find that they are effective without drying out skin.
Dinh Thi Thanh Van, 30, Combination skin
The cleansing oil has a nice smell and is able to remove makeup quite well. It also doesn’t irritate the eyes, which I appreciate. Huxley’s Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Foam are a good pair and can complement each other.
Audrey Koh, 32, Combination skin
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil is one of the best cleansing oils I have tried and can remove my makeup – even waterproof eyeliner and mascara – thoroughly, without leaving any residue, compared to other brands’ products I’ve tried.
Minyi, 35, Combination skin
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil removed my waterproof makeup easily without feeling too oily. I like the texture because it cleans my face without making it dry and provides my skin with moisture. I will purchase it again and recommend it to my friends.
Joanna Chan, 27, Combination skin
It removed my makeup within a single wash but I find that it’s a little too strong for my skin condition, as my cheeks were red after usage. The Cleansing Foam, however, helps calm down my cheeks’ redness. I’m pleased to have finally found a cleansing foam that does not dry out my skin and reduce my cheek’s redness.
Rachel Tay, 25, Combination skin
I have to use three pumps of the cleansing oil for it to be effective and even then it wasn’t able to remove all my makeup.
Felicia, 28, Oily skin
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil is effective at removing makeup and I would certainly repurchase it and recommend it to others. I also love its simple packaging!
Chua Xueli, 26, Dry skin
The cleansing oil is effective in removing my makeup, even waterproof mascara. My skin feels cleaner and fresher after makeup remover – something that I don’t feel when I use a micellar water that I’m used to. I also love how Huxley’s Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Foam complement each other. The latter gives my skin a glow after rinsing off.
Eunice Chye, 28, Dry skin
It is effective in removing makeup, including my matte lipstick, and makeup residue around my neck, ears, and hairline. I love the pleasing and gentle scent. I use Huxley’s Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Foam together and my skin feels clean yet not drying. My skin felt smooth to touch, especially after using the cleansing foam.
Toh Fang Hong, 25, Combination skin
I was initially worried that the products may dry out my skin when I know that they’re meant for deep cleaning, but they are surprisingly balanced. The cleansing oil works a lot better compared to another luxury brand I’ve tried. The cleansing oil and cleansing foam work well together because the former leaves a mild oily feeling that is cleansed off perfectly with the foam.
Tan Shi Hui Joyce, 25, Combination skin
I like that Huxley’s Cleansing Oil doesn’t feel oily nor leave a residue. Both the cleansing oil and cleansing foam are great products that don’t leave your skin feeling dry after rinsing off. They may be new products to the market but definitely worth a try.
Graclyn Wong, 33, Dry skin
It cleanses so gently without drying out my skin. It’s hard to find a good cleansing oil that is as gentle and moisturising as Huxley’s Cleansing Oil.
Esther Chia, 27, Dry skin
I have tried both Huxley’s Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Foam. The cleansing oil is great at remvoing makeup. But what I really love more is the cleansing foam, which makes my face feel very clean and moist after using it. I will consider repurchasing them.
An An Ong, 30, Combination skin
The products are able to cleanse properly while moisturising skin, making them suitable for Singapore’s weather. My skin feels moisturised, soft, and deeply cleansed, which is really amazing. I especially love the design of the cleansing oil, which prevents leakage. Both products smell good too!
Soh Wan Ting, 30, Combination skin
Huxley’s Cleansing Oil provides a thorough cleanse without making my skin feel dry or tight. It is gentle, and I feel it will be suitable for a variety of skin types. The product packaging looks chic and minimalist – definitely looks good on any bathroom shelf!
Serene, 34, Dry skin
The cleansing oil leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, without making it dry. My skin still feels moist and soft after rinsing off, which is a vital point to me, because my skin is so dry. It certainly exceeds my expectations in its cleansing and moisturising properties!
Celeste Tia, 28, Combination skin
The cleansing oil managed to remove my waterproof mascara, and I’m impressed by it. It feels gentle and leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean, moisturised, without any irritation. After trying it and the Cleansing Foam, I am keen to try out other products from Huxley!
