Facial Cleansing and Skin Repair Oil

(28 customer reviews)




We have become believers in the Oil Cleansing Method for skin! The basic concept of this cleansing method is oil massaged into the skin will dissolve oils and impurities that have hardened into the pores. Castor oil is the magic bullet in this cleansing method.


This product is 100 percent oil-based and will melt in the heat. Customers ordering in warm weather order at their own risk.

    My daughters and I use this for removing make-up, cleansing, and moisturizing. This product can do so much! It is the best product I’ve ever used to remove eye make-up, especially for waterproof mascara. Once the pores have been opened with a warm, wet cloth, this product it great at getting the dirt out (including helping acne prone skin)! I have stopped using other moisturizers because of the effectiveness of this product. It keeps my skin clean and soft!

    I love it. It smells divine. It helps problem skin areas. I have ezcema rashes on my arms, neck and shoulders with some small open areas from scratching…this has helped them heal faster and I believe cut back the itchiness. I just love it and will order again.

    I love this product. It cleanses well and feels silky soft but not greasy. You can’t beat the price and the fast service. My on line order arrived in less than 24 hours! well done Va Soaps!

    This product is simply amazing. I discovered Virginia Soaps at a craft show. I bought several products that night and NONE have disappointed. I was skeptical at first because I have adult sensitive skin but also experience break out time to time. I was leery of it being an “oil.” I have been using this since November along with the other products and I can honestly say it is the best out there. I have zero breakout and my skin feels and looks great. I have spent $100 plus on skincare regimens through the years. I even worked for 2 companies. These products, hands down, are the best for me. And….I don’t even spend close to $100 on the total regimen. Please, please don’t ever stop making these products!

    This is a wonderful product. I use it every night to remove my makeup. It smells so good and has a great texture. Unlike coconut oil it does not get into my eyes and make them blurry. I love it!

    I love, love, love this facial cleanser. It is effective without drying out my skin or being full of powerful (and agitating) scents or chemicals! I’ve tried other ‘main brand’ facial cleansers for sensitive skin and I keep coming back to this one. Thanks!

    This is the best facial cleaner you can buy. And a little goes a long way! I have combination skin, being both oily and dry at times. This cleanser keeps me from being oily but moisturizes at the same time. My skin is clearing up as well. When I turned 31 last year, my skin became extremely sensitive and broke out often. This is helping to calm the irritation down and decrease the oil production, which in turn helps prevent breakouts. I highly recommend to anyone of any age!

    As a combination, I use this cleanser, the witch hazel toner and cucumber & aloe vera moisturizer. This combo has worked wonders for me!

    Awesome!!!! I have been struggling with dry skin that I would then moisturize and then break out. With this I am nearly blemish free and my skin stays soft! I love it!!! I will be ordering more. Please don’t ever change it! ♡

    I love love this product it cleans your face so well leaves it well moisturized doesn’t burn your eyes when you’re removing eye makeup. Gave some to my friend and my sister, they loved it too. Everytime I reorder I reorder some for them. The scent is wonderful.

  10. Diane (verified owner)

    Still love this! Kept my promise and trying other products offered by VA Soaps….I have not been disappointed by any of them.

  11. Allison (verified owner)

    Fantastic product! I look forward to washing my face and I love the way it makes my skin feel! A dab on dry areas after washing is a nice way to moisturize also. The scent is wonderful and refreshing in morning or evening. I appreciate the very reasonable price as well.

  12. Diane (verified owner)

    Just started using this cleanser. So far I love it! Will need to try the other products I’ve read about here.

    Five stars easy. One of the best skin care products I have ever owned…REALLY! Though I’ll admit I was skeptical when I purchased it. But now we love it in our home. It is easy on the skin, takes off my eye makeup, I can use it twice a day without drying out my skin…EVER. It works to heal and repel acne…Yes my teens use it too. It works anywhere on your skin (not just the face) to help heal up acne, etc. I LOVE this product.

    I was a soap and warm water girl before, but when I reached my upper 50’s, I decided to try something different. I LOVE the Facial Cleansing Oil! My skin feels so much better and I am not using as much facial moisturizer as before. My sister – in – law even asked what I was doing for my skin care. The only difference was the Facial Cleansing Oil. My sister – in – law is not the only one to notice. I have a container at my parent’s home for when I travel, and at our second home as well. It makes me happy to see the wonderful ingredients used. I would not be without this product!

    I love love love this product I have been using it for about a year now and I just love it !!!! It calms my skin so beautifully I use it as a cleanser and as a moisturizer it calms the red bumps I get from time to time due to rosecea.

  16. mjv4me (verified owner)

    I buy this for my daughters, grand-daughters and myself! We all love it!

  17. Stephanie (verified owner)

    I have used this product for a few years now. It is the best facial cleanser/moisturizer I have ever used! I have sensitive, dry skin and had not found something that worked with my skin combination for a long time. Most products were too harsh and dried out my skin even more. But this product leaves my skin clean and soft. I love it!!!

  18. Lena Anderson (verified owner)

    I have been using this product since it was first introduced. I use it morning & night to remove makeup & moisturize. I have dry skin & use it on my face, neck, & chest. It is also amazing on your hands or cuts. Help heal cuts faster.

  19. Kathy K (verified owner)

    I love this cleanser. It is gentle on my skin. Many cleansers irritate the skin around my eyes, but this fully removes eye makeup with no irritation. It leaves my skin soft and hydrated but never oily. I’ve tried many types of cleansers and this is the best, hands down!

    While on a trip, my young son ate a lot of watermelon and the sugars “burned” his skin at the corner of his mouth. Nothing I put on it helped and we were out of state with family. I remembered that I had packed the Skin Repair Oil and I decided to try it (even though I had just bought it and had never opened before). It was amazing! The next morning his burns were healing. In a couple of days, everything was fine. It saved our trip!

    I have always had oily skin. When I reached my mid 30’s it started to dry out. Just recently (now 40ish) I decided to give this a try and I love it. I use the apricot scrub every other day in place of the cleansing oil and I have received more compliments on how good my skin looks since I stopped using the department store brand. And I save money too.

  22. Veronica

    After watching my friends skin become glowing I decided I had to try this myself. Wow. I wish I had known about it ten years ago. As a 30 year old woman who’s tried everything and still breaks out like a teenager I was very skeptical, but this truly has worked for me! I found that regular (non-natural) moisturizers and things afterwards will still break me out. Now all I will use on my face is this, the VS apricot scrub, and a natural moisturizing oil of I need it. I’m watching my pores be cleaned and reduced every day, my redness and blemishes disappearing. I’m a believer!

    This product is a great facial cleanser. It removes your makeup very well without burning your eyes like some makeup remover.

  24. Lesley Barber (verified owner)

    I have been using this for a few years, and I LOVE it. I ran out of it before I ordered my next batch, and I about went nuts. It is awesome for taking off your makeup, cleaning your face, removing mascara, cleaning your kids face, taking face paint off your kids, dry skin, and so much more. It does not burn your eyes when taking off eye makeup. It is my favorite!!

  25. Melanie Kosko (verified owner)

    Love, love, love this product! Easily cleans stubborn eye makeup and feels great on your skin!

  26. julieanns526 (verified owner)

    I love everything about this product! The scent of it, the way it cleans, the way it makes my skin feel! I have very sensitive skin which makes it hard to use anything on my face and when it is cold outside forget it! This was given to me I loved it soo much that I ordered more! You will not go wrong with this stuff it is cheap and it will last you along time!

    Virginia Soaps & Scents were exhibiting at the Fredericksburg Expo Center a couple of weeks ago, and I purchased 3 products: this cleanser, the serum gel, and the whipped moisture cream. I love all 3 so much, I actually look forward to cleansing my skin in the morning & evening! I have very dry, aging skin (which is always painfully dry in cold weather) and these 3 products are fantastic. My skin stays smooth and moist all day (and night). Wonderful stuff!! I love the results and also love the fragrances of the products – lovely, but not overwhelming (especially love the scent of the serum gel). I will definitely order again!

  28. Sandra Modersohn (verified owner)

    This stuff is totally counter to what I thought I knew about facial cleansing. When I first saw it I thought it was a really odd way to try to clean your face… with more oil!? But then I read the blog post you shared about it and thought I’d give it a try with my next order. I’ve used it three nights in a row and this late-30’s woman who has battled acne since middle school is nearly blemish free. Not that I’ve never experienced that before, but it always came at a dear cost of time and dryness. 3/6/12 step systems that leave skin gasping but smooth. This Skin Repair Oil is divine! Not only is it quick to use (although I rather enjoy the mini facial I get every evening), my skin is left soft, glowing, radiant, pampered! Not abused and broken. It works. And it smells fantastic doing it! ♥ THANK YOU!

  29. Donna B. (verified owner)

    I am loving using this oil! It’s not oily, like you might think, but kind of creamy in the jar, and then melts into your skin. I have dry skin, so I will take all the moisture I can get! I really love the way it smells! Energizing! I don’t often buy products with scents since I have sensitive skin but this one is a winner!

    After doing chemo treatment for skin cancer last spring, my skin was incredibly irritated by anything and everything. I stopped by Va Soaps at the HEAV convention and decided to give the facial cleansing oil a try. After trying product after product before that time, it was a true success. It allowed my skin to recover and heal and I LOVE the fact that I don’t even have to use a moisturizer! I have naturally oily skin and still have breakouts at age 45, but this product has been an amazing difference. It is true that the oil based cleanser cleans without stripping the face. I get so many compliments on my skin now. My skin is so happy I won’t return to using big name brands anymore.
