Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil is Japanese cleansing oil that dissolves makeup with lightning speed.

The oil gently and quickly lifts away makeup and pore-clogging impurities when the skin is damp. It speedily and thoroughly rinses away leaving no oily residue, making double cleansing unnecessary.

The cleansing oil is renewed in 2016 to better melt away mascara, stubborn makeup, and clogged pores even when the skin is damp. A new luxurious blend of 5 certified organic oils (olive oil, jojoba oil, sesame oil, safflower oil, and shea butter) keeps skin smooth and moisturised.

It is newly improved in 2019 to be safe on eyelash extensions. It also rinses away quicker and cleaner than the previous formula.


Skin Type(s):         


Use on dry or damp skin. Dispense 4 pumps of oil to palm and gently massage face in a circular motion over the face to remove makeup. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

    • You could but Japanese cleansing oils are makeup removers, not facial cleansers. So if you wouldn’t use one unless you’re wearing makeup.

      • Oh I did not know that. I don’t use makeup, but I thought cleansing oils were better at removing sunscreen than the gentle water cleansers.

        My skin is sensitive and sometimes dehydrated, so I’m hoping it will be able to handle the kose speedy cleanser.

        That’s interesting

        • Using cleansing oil to remove sunscreen (with no makeup on) or as a facial cleanser is a western thing. In Japan, we just use regular foaming face wash to remove sunscreen and it’s fine. Cleansing oils and balms aren’t cleansers.

          • Oh I see, that makes sense cause everyone over here always says you can even single cleanse with certain oil cleansers.

            I’ve never used foaming face wash’s, I know they’re definitely more harsh than water cleansers, but idk if they are compared to oil cleansers.

            I always thought these types of cleansing oils acted as cleansers as well. I feel like I generally use very little of my water cleanser anyways, so my skin probably doesn’t require much cleansing in general.

            • I’m not sure what you’re referring to when you say “water cleanser”. Like micellar cleansing waters? Those are categorised as makeup removers too in Japan. Or do you mean cleansers that are water-based? If so, that is what foaming face washes are — there’re water-based.

              In Japan, there is no such thing as “oil cleansers” — cleansing oils are just for removing makeup and they aren’t meant to be used on their own. So using one as a cleanser is incredibly odd, especially if the skin has no makeup on. If it works for you though, it’s fine.

            • By water cleansers I meant things like vanicream gentle cleanser, cerave hydrating cleanser, etc. And supposedly those can remove sunscreen but you need to cleanse/rinse for longer than normal.

              And I’ve not tested the kose oil cleansing yet, I tried hada labo awhile ago but that was too drying for me, so I’m not sure if it will work for me yet. I’m just not sure if a gentle cleanser like cerave or vanicream would actually remove sunscreen.

              As long as there is no oil residue leftover I think single cleansing with the oil “might” work. Not sure.

            • Ok, I’ll try at first with just the kose speedy. And if my face has oil left over then I’ll add one of the gentle cleansers I listed and hope it’s all not too drying.

              Interesting the differences

            • Typically are the (foaming) cleansers you’re talking about more or less drying than things like the kose speedy cleanser? Thanks for the replies btw!

            • They aren’t comparable because like I said before, they’re for different purposes. Softymo Speedy isn’t a cleanser — it’s a makeup remover. Japanese face washes, on the other hand, aren’t designed to take off makeup.

            • And both take off sunscreen?
              I guess America does use oil cleansers differently sometimes.

              Out of curiosity, if the oil cleanser ends up being too drying for me, could you recommend a gentle cleanser for dry/dehydrated skin that is able to remove sunscreen?

            • Also in case you were curious, these are the ingredients to the type of gentle cleanser I was mentioning earlier. Idk if this would take off sunscreen or water resistant sunscreen:
              Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Polysorbate 20, Poloxamer 188, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Sodium Hydroxide, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Flower/Leaf/Stem Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate

            • That’s a cleanser?! Based on its ingredients, it doesn’t look like it can even remove sebum from the skin. It only has 2 surfactants and they’re so mild that aren’t usually used as cleansing agents in cleansers.

            • That’s what it says it is! This would be the other gentle one I use:
              Aqua/​Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Peg-40 Stearate, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Glyceryl Stearate, Polysorbate 20, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Phosphate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tocopherol, Ceramide Eop

              So I’m not sure if either would remove sunscreen efficiently. Well the first one you said doesn’t look like it can remove sebum even lol.

            • This one looks even worse. How can this even cleanse when it has nearly no cleansing agent in it? The maximum concentration permitted for phenoxyethanol, a preservative, is 1% and it’s the 4th ingredient from the top. Surfactants don’t appear till nearly halfway down the list and they aren’t usually used as cleansing agents in typical cleansers.

              They’re most definitely gentle because they don’t look like they can actually cleanse the skin.

            • So with knowing that, maybe my skin doesn’t require much cleansing lol? Because I only use half a pump, when it says to use 1-2pumps.

              I guess I just need to find the least stripping way to remove sunscreen. Which could be the kose, not sure yet.

            • I’d say you were barely cleansing your skin. Those gentle cleanser’s ingredients look about as effective at cleansing skin as rubbing a lot of (terribly formulated) moisturising gel all over the face then rinsing off.

            • That’s what I was thinking, maybe my skin doesn’t really need any cleansing then?

              Do you have any recommendations of ones you like for removing sunscreen? What’s popular in Japan/Asia, since you don’t have these “gentle cleansers”.

            • My oil cleanse + water cleanser is a little too drying for me to do so often tbh, especially since I don’t wear makeup. Do you think this cleanser could take of sunscreen?
              Aqua/​Water/​Eau, Glycerin, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Coco-Betaine, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Chloride, Pca, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, PEG-100 Stearate, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PEG-6 Caprylic/​Capric Glycerides, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Ci 77891/​Titanium Dioxide, Aspartic Acid, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Ceramide EOP, Sorbitan Isostearate, Carbomer, Glycol Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Oleate, Glycine, Trideceth-6, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Threonine, Sodium Hydroxide, Salicylic Acid, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Arginine, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Serine, Sodium Benzoate, Valine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Proline, Isoleucine, Cholesterol, Phenoxyethanol, Alanine, Phenylalanine, Coconut Acid, Coco-Glucoside, Chlorphenesin, Disodium EDTA, Hydroxyethyl Urea, Citric Acid, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/​Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Phytosphingosine, Xanthan Gum, Histidine, Acrylates/​C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Polyquaternium-53, Polyquaternium-39, Polysorbate 60, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzoic Acid
              Also do you have a link on your site to a list of cleansers you’d recommend for taking off just sunscreen and not as stripping as oil cleansers?

  1. Mine has a spoiled smell? It does look like the 2019 version with the sticker. I checked the manufacturing code which is A2M2on cosmetic calculator and the result was Januay 2012. Should I be worried?

    • It should be free of scent and odour.

      Cosmetic batch code checker websites aren’t accurate at all. According to their calculations, some of the just-released and not-yet-released products that I have were produced many years ago. Their results are frequently nothing but nonsense.

  2. May I know the manufactured date of batch code I3B2 which I recently bought from Singapore Watson? I am not sure it is expired or not.

    • You’d need to directly contact Kose Cosmeport for that. This has been revamped earlier this year. If yours doesn’t look exactly like the 2019 packaging, it’s not the freshest. That doesn’t mean it’s expired though since the standard shelf life is 3 years.
