An oil cleanser should be a staple in your beauty routine, but did you know that there are many other ways to use it outside your double-cleansing ritual?

So let's say you've got an oil cleanser that's just not working for your face at all, you don't have to throw it away! Here are some other ways you can use this multitasking product:
1. Remove deodorant residue
Can't seem to get rid of that leftover deodorant residue on your armpits? Double cleanse with an oil cleanser and body soap! Many Reddit users who have tried this have also said that their armpits looked brighter and felt much smoother afterwards!
2. Help clean your makeup brushes
Much like double-cleansing your face, oil cleansers can also help remove all the oil-based makeup, dirt or debris stuck on your makeup brushes.
All you have to do is apply an appropriate amount of oil cleanser (our all-time favourite is Heimish's All Clean Balm) to your brush and massage it throughout the bristles. You can wait for a few minutes or immediately run them under water to emulsify the oil and get rid of all the makeup. Then, proceed with a gentle water-based cleanser to wash away any residual oil and impurities. You can simply swirl your brush around the soap and wash it until it feels nice and clean!
3. A shaving cream substitute
Ran out of shaving cream? No problem! Just spread a few pumps of the oil cleanser onto dry legs, shave and rinse! Using a cleansing oil also helps get a closer shave, smoother finish and more hydrated skin.
