Cleansing Oil Causes Skin Purging?

Hello! I introduced cleansing oil in my routine about 4 weeks ago. This is my very first time using cleansing oil. And I found out that it makes my skin to purge. So, should I stop using that? Am I allergic to cleansing oil? It has been over 4 weeks and I am still suffering from it. And I become less confident of my look. Please tell me, if I should stop using it and how to overcome from skin purging? 😔

It might be that the cleansing oil is comedogenic. There might be ingredients on the cleansing oil you're using that clogs your pores. 😅 I suggest to stop using the cleansing oil if you are sure that is the product that causes breakouts. 😬

It's very seldom to get purging due to cleansing oil so it's very likely to be breakout. anyhow I suggest to stop any products that you're suspecting and heal the breakouts first then try one by one to see how you're skin reacts💛

it’s not likely to be purging unless there are ingredients in your oil that causes that. i reckon it’s a breakout, tho that also depends on the type of breakout you get. when i use cleansing oil every night, i’ve noticed that it triggers my fungal acne. it could also just be that your skin just doesn’t agree with the oil you’re currently using.

You may stop using it if you suspected it’s the cause of skin purging. After stop using it, if the condition doesn’t getting any better, then the cleansing oil is not the main cause of your breakout. This is usually what I did. 🙂 hope it helps.
