My thoughts on Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil

Kose is a Japanese brand and I haven’t tried any products from this brand before.

Always when I use makeup I start with an oil cleanser. My skin type is super dry so using oil cleansers is absolutely the best match for my skin. I do double cleanse whenever I have been using more makeup, during summer time, or when I just feel like a deeper cleanse. Since my skin is really dry I tend to stay away from too much foam cleansing during winter time.

This cleansing oil claims to be speedy and to be a all in one cleanser. Whenever I hear this I get a little skeptical since I do think that this is seldom the case. I always remove my eye makeup first since I really don’t want all that rubbing on my eyes. But since this product claims to be all that. I just have to do it to test it out.


It comes in a large pump bottle and there is really nothing negative to say about it. It just screams J- beauty to me. You get a lot of product for the money.

When I ordered this one I only went for the popularity of it and didn’t really know that they had different versions. If I would have known I would have gone for the deep version due to my ddry skin type.

Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil is really lightweight and it is a really nice cleansing oil to use. But that doesn’t mean that I love it.

I don’t use heavy makeup very often, but I do use light cover foundation or BB cream, blush, mascara and eye brow products. And what I normally would do is that I remove my eye makeup first with an eye makeup remover first and then I use the oil cleanser for my face. This product does claim to remove eye makeup as well. But I really don’t think it is very effective in doing this.

I need to massage my eye area for a really long time to get the mascara to dissolve and still I need to wipe with a cotton pad after rinsing my face to get the mascara out. By doing this I feel that I rub my eyes way too much and I get a lot of oil cleanser into my eyes which will blur the vision for a while.

As for its capability to cleanse the rest of my face. I am not super impressed either. I have a test video on YouTube and Instagram where you can see how it went.

If you use heavier makeup you absolutely have to double cleanse after using it. Since I really don’t think it cleanses that well. As for a first cleanser (using a foam cleanser after) it is enough. It does a Ok job in cleansing my makeup away (I don’t use heavy makeup) and it doesn’t leave any oily residues on my skin.

So is this one not worth it? Well it is if you don’t use it as a eye makeup remover and if you double cleanse. The answer will be yes. Is it the best cleansing oil? The answer would be no.


If you double cleanse this is a nice cleanser. I would not repurchase this version but I would rather go for the deep version instead since I feel that it is a better option for my skin type.

I give this product 3/7
