InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil Review

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil

Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil has been keeping my vanity company for a few months now so I thought I’d give it a review. Innisfree is a Korean brand which makes (or made) one of my very favorite BB Creams and it sincerely doesn’t get enough love here on my blog because it really is a great brand with some super offerings.

Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil is one such brilliant offering!

Take a peek!

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil supposedly contains Vitamin C from apple that allows it to deep clean pores. Honestly, I purchased it to clear away makeup but wasn’t terribly concerned about getting a deep clean from it. Let’s be honest how deep a clean can you get from a cleansing oil right?

This is a thicker cleansing oil with a fresh scent. The scent does have apple elements to it but there is something more dominate in the mix that gives it a more fresh apple scent rather than a sweet or fruity one. I find it very pleasant and I think that even sensitive skin won’t mind the fragrance in the least.

I love the thicker consistency of this oil as a little goes quite a long way. I realize cleansing oils may intimidate you if you never tried one before as the idea of placing oil all over your face may sound like a greasy experience. No worries though! Cleansing Oil is applied on a dry face with makeup and a little water is added to emulsify it so it goes milky and rinses clean away. No oily residue is left behind and your face isn’t greasy after using it.

The best part about it is the fact that it really cleanses well and removes EVERYTHING! Including waterproof mascara if you want (although I prefer removing my eye makeup prior to cleansing my entire face).

This does an excellent job stripping all my makeup from my face and any oil, dirt, etc…that may have accumulated through the course of my day. My face is left smooth and soft after use without any tightness or flakiness.

Cleansing Oils aren’t always friendly with my skin and I’m left feeling a tad dry after using them but Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil removes my makeup easily and doesn’t leave my skin dry after using it!

Do like!

It’s available at as well as a variety of online shops for as little as $13-$15.

Loves it.

    Hey do you ever cleanse with a cleansing oil or just use it as a makeup remover? I keep seeing these blog posts of people using them on clean skin and it apparently removes blackheads n stuff.

    • the Muse

      not really…..honestly, I can’t imagine it attacking blackheads…seems to gentle don’t you think? The only blackheads I have are on my nose and those suckers are going no where lol!

      • Cj

        Mmk, have you tried the dhc pore one yet :P? I’m gonna keep bothering you till you do lol!

        • the Muse

          I have lol! and I liked it a lot (thanks for the rec)….! Been using it on and off with this and a brightening one I got…I’m in cleansing oil rotation at the moment ;-D DHC always makes great products…!

          • Cj

            Is this one thicker than the dhc? I’m a sucker for thick oils lol. And what is this brightening one you speak of?! Don’t tease me!!

          • the Muse

            mmmm…yeah kinda and more slippery too! skin food has a lemon brightening one that I really love hehehe ;-D

      actually, cleansing oils totally do clear pores!! I used a mixture of castor oil and grapeseed oil on my acne prone skin, and as I massaged it in I could feel little “beads” (I’m assuming clogged pores/hardened sebum) in the oil – by the end it was like an exfoliating scrub (ew, I know lol)! My skin was cleansed and moisturized afterward, and my acne has never been better since I stopped doing much to my skin (now I only use a gentle, all natural cleansing wipe or a baking soda/coffee grounds scrub in the shower at night – do nothing in the morning). The baking soda/coffee grounds really cleared up my pores though. But I definitely think oils give you a good clean – like dissolves like.

      • debbi

        Hi..I read here that you use a coffe ground/ baking soda scrub. Do you have the mixture amounts ?? Thanks !!

  • StellaDiva

    Is it as thick as the Josie Maran Cleansing Oil. I didn’t like that as it was quite thick.

    • the Muse

      probably thicker Stella but more slippery than Josie’s

      • StellaDiva

        Good, bec the JM cleansing oil really drags on skin and over eyes.

  • Ivy

    Hey muse when will you be posting the wet n wild liquid lipstick review? I’ve been waiting for four months haha πŸ™‚ love you muse! Xx

    • the Muse

      hi ivy sorry I get a little busy, will do my best to get it live soon πŸ™‚ <3! Not to worry you aren't missing much, they suck imho.

  • Monica

    what I love from your blog is korean brands update. I loooooooove it!
    could you make a review of innisfree cc cream?
    I’m interested in innisfree cc cream/bb cream, really want to purchase but still waiting for the review.
    hope you can review more innisfree bb creams. yayyy! πŸ™‚

  • Angel

    This sounds great , but I can’t find an ingredient list anywhere online πŸ™ my skin is so sensitive, I gotta read all labels first. I’m really trying to find a cheaper alternative to JM. It’s great, but so pricey!

  • JΓ» rock-or-not

    It’s on my wishlist!
    I only bought the makeup remover from this collection so far, and I can’t wait to test it!

  • Quinctia


    Now I’m even more upset that I managed to accidentally buy Holika’s Soda Cleansing WATER when I meant to buy the Cleansing OIL.

    Maybe I’ll look at ordering this one instead! I wanted to try a cleansing oil!!

  • Cj

    I ordered this over the weekend, I saw that they had a matching cleansing foam so picked that up too lol! Can’t wait to give em a try πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      oh I didn’t see the foam! I would have gotten it! damn! next run around ;D Happy Monday dearest!

      • Cj

        XD they also have a gel cleanser but I prefer foams so…. πŸ˜› here’s hoping it has that awesome apple scent you described πŸ˜€ happy Monday to you too! You have a good weekend?

        • the Muse

          me too, I stupidly ordered the gel etude house one and kinda regretting it. It’s really a sweet fresh apple I hope you like. excellent weekend, went upstate to clean up my Summer home and start getting it ready for the season, gorgeous weather ridiculously so really I’m waiting for a snow storm or something to ruin it all. How was yours?!

  • RaΓ­

    Muse, does the thickness of the product difficults when you are spreading and massaging it on face?
    I’m asking this because i’m having a bad time with Kracie Naive orange, that i consider much more thicker and difficult to spread then the Kracie Naive Deep (the green one).

  • Alex

    Can this cleansing oil be enough to cleanse the face without a follow-up of a foaming cleanser. Others have told me that usually oil cleansers are used first on their face but they follow it up with another thicker cleanser. I am worried it would over-do it on my face & also I am not too keen on buying two cleansers. But do you believe that it is necessary to have a two step cleansing process when using this specific oil cleanser?

  • Mediterranean Maven

    I love Innisfree’s green tea cleansing oil. It’s the first Korean cleansing oil that I tried and I have to say that I am very impressed. It takes off all of my makeup including eye makeup and mascara without irritation and leaves my skin soft and smooth. A little goes a long way. And the mineral oil didn’t bother my dry and sensitive skin at all. This is way better than Laventine Olive Forte which I have a hard time getting off even with warm water and a washcloth. I’m really enjoying trying the Korean cleansing oils.

    • Mediterranean Maven

      Oops, I just realized that this is one of a few Korean cleansing oils that does not contain mineral oil but macadamia oil instead. Mineral oil doesn’t bother me either. I find it rather soothing and it attracts and retains moisture onto the skin. So far, I like this brand of cleansing oil as well as the Nature Republic Forest Garden Cleansing Oils which come in 5 varieties. I’ve tried the Chamomile, Argan Oil, Olive and Green Tea versions and they are all great at removing makeup and mascara and leave my skin really soft and hydrated without tightness or flakiness. There is only one that I am on the fence about and that is “The First Green Tea Natural Facial Deep Cleansing Oil” which oddly enough contains alcohol in the ingredient list. While it doesn’t dry out my skin, I’m concerned that repeated use might do just that. And the adventure continues…. Thank you, Muse for your wonderful reviews!

      • the Muse

        aw my pleasure…! Quite curious about the NR Cleansing Oils myself, I haven’t tried yet…! nice to hear they work well!

  • Ruby

    Thanks ^^
