Are you looking for smooth, beautiful skin as well as a good, deep cleanse? Then let’s hear it for Japan’s No.1 ranking cleansing oil, Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil! At a fraction of its high-end brand competitors’ prices, Softymo Cleansing Oil packs a powerful punch of organic ingredients to melt away your makeup, dirt and sweat, leaving you not only with clean skin, but soft and supple skin, too!
I originally found a review of Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil on skincarisma when I was looking for a good cleansing oil, I purchased a bottle and I’ve got to tell you, I’m not looking back! If you’re looking for an honest, British girl’s opinion then you’ve come to the right place. This is my unbiased, impartial kose softymo deep cleansing oil review. Enjoy!
What Is A Cleansing Oil?
You may be thinking… “Oil? On my face?! Breakout much!?” Well, at least that’s what I thought. Yet cleansing oils are the next big thing when it comes to beauty regimens, Reddit has plenty to say on the matter! If you’re hesitant that when using Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil breakouts will occur then fear not! I’m acne-prone (still, in my 30’s… sob) and have sensitive skin. I have used this product everyday for over a week and still haven’t had a breakout (touch wood). It’s passing all the tests for me.
In particular, Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil makeup remover cleverly clears out those pores without clogging them up. This makeup removing oil gently melts away all types of makeup - long wearing, waterproof, mascara, foundation, shadows – you name it! It gently washes these away as well as lifting away blackheads and impurities from within the pores.
I used to use DHC deep cleansing oil which, don’t get me wrong, is a great product, but I just can’t justify the hefty price tag it comes with. Imagine my reaction when I discovered Softymo; organic ingredients, cares for the skin, gives a deep cleanse, doesn’t cause breakouts, leaves no oily residue, and leaves me with extra coins in my purse!? It’s a no-brainer. Naturally when I compare kose softymo deep cleansing oil vs DHC deep cleansing oil, Softymo is the champ!
What’s In The Bottle? The Secret Ingredients Are Organic Oils To Cleanse and Soften
One of the pluses of Softymo is that it rinses off easily, leaving no residue. I have found with other oil cleansers I have to really scrub to remove the oil, or it takes a long time to fully remove it… but not with Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil. My skin feels properly cleansed and smooth afterwards. The formula was renewed in 2016 to better clear pores.
The new luxurious blend of 5 certified organic oils: olive oil, jojoba oil, sesame oil, safflower oil, and shea butter, ensures your skin is kept smooth and moisturised. It’s no wonder Softymo has been voted the No.1 best seller in cleansing oils in Japan.

Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil vs Speedy Oil & Whitening Oil
Softymo is so unbelievably fab that Kose have made 3 different versions, so depending on your skins wants and needs, you can choose the perfect product for you! The Softymo lineup consists of Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil, Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil and Softymo White Cleansing Oil. The speedy oil is perfect for those who are go-go-go as it’s formulated to work in double the time.
The Kose website also says it’s good for those who want to take their makeup off in the bath/shower, however I have done that with my deep cleansing oil without any problems.
Next is the deep cleansing oil which boasts to rid your face of blackheads and give you beautifully soft skin, which I can attest to. Lastly is the whitening oil which is a big hit in Japan, but may not have even been heard of in The UK.
Whitening means to brighten the complexion which this product claims to do whilst it cleanses and is also good for those who want to lessen the appearance of dull, tired skin.
How To Use Softymo Cleansing Oil
Dispense 3 pumps of the cleansing oil into dry hands and massage gently onto your face. Be sure to do this step before you wet/wash your face as the water reacts with the product to give you that deep clean. After massaging for a little while, wet your hands with water and continue massaging. This is where the product will turn white slightly to show it’s emulsifying. Rinse everything off with water to reveal your beautifully refreshed and throughly cleansed face.
Tested on waterproof mascara & eyeliner, foundation, lipstick and eyeshadow
All traces of makeup have washed away effortlessly, leaving my skin soft, clean and bright.
Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil is a sure winner! I have used it for over a week now and haven’t had a single breakout. It dissolves my makeup, even my stubborn waterproof mascara in a jiffy and I’ve noticed my skin feels and looks healthier, softer and bouncy.
It doesn’t leave an oily residue like some cleansing oils can and is also ok to use on sensitive skin. The bottle should last me about 2-3 months if I use it everyday which I think is fantastic value for money, especially compared to the other cleansing oils that are out there for double, if not triple the price!
Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil gives you everything you need and more in your beauty regime. It has made its way into mine and will for many years to come. The only con I can find with it is that it’s hard to find in The UK, but some good news is that we, Zak Zakka, actually sells it. Why not try a bottle for yourself and gift your skin the pleasure of Softymo.
