Erno Laszlo Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Among my recent Erno Laszlo purchases is yet another product with which I am very familiar! Erno Laszlo Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil is among the products that I began using at 17, and continued to use for many many years. There is no question that living through the pandemic has made me very nostalgic for my life before this time, and Erno Laszlo products were such a constant in my life growing up that I felt compelled to revisit their luxury skincare line. I was reminiscing with my mom and sister about the days that we use to drive to San Francisco from the East Bay to replenish our Laszlo products, spend time together and create so many noteworthy memories, and I told them both that part of my trip down memory lane was the rediscovery of Erno Laszlo.

Erno Laszlo Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil is a wonderfully nourishing cleansing oil, with a comforting light and warm aroma, that is supposed to be massaged into dry skin. It removes makeup and dirt and helps to dislodge debris from clogged pores. After a few minutes of massaging the oil into the skin you dip your chosen Erno Laszlo cleansing bar (my choice is their Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar reviewed HERE) into a basin of warm water, then rub the bar on your oily face. Water activates the creamy lather and it deeply cleans the skin without any stripping (the oil acts as a buffer). Laszlo purists, like me, use the old splashing method which involves 20 splashes in the filled basin and then 10 splashes with fresh running water (the water should not be too hot). The end result is extraordinarily clean, soft skin that isn't in the least bit stripped. This is an amazing cleansing oil, and I had forgotten how much I had loved it, and the extent to which it is extraordinarily effective.

According to Eno Laszlo,

One of Dr. Laszlo’s earliest innovations, the Phelityl Complex remains an advanced way to hydrate skin and balance pH by replenishing the fatty acids essential to its health. This nourishing oil cleanses and conditions without stripping or drying skin.

Essential oils found in this pre cleansing oil penetrate pores, dissolving impurities on contact while nourishing skin. 

To complete the best double cleanse duo, use one of Erno Laszlo's cleansing oils. Use before the Cleansing Bar of your choice as part of your Double-Cleanse ritual. Specially formulated for dull, congested skin in need of a deep-clean detox. Formulated for all skin types.

  1. Wow, Erno Laszlo wss way ahead of the curve with the double cleansing method! Can you use this oil to remove eye makeup as well, or do you use a separate cleanser for that purpose?

    1. No kidding, Erno Laszlo was doing cleaning oils nearly a century ago! You can use this to remove your makeup, however I still prefer to use an eye makeup remover before so that I don't end up smearing makeup all over my face during my double cleansing routine.

  2. I remember the splashing but I wasn't disciplined enough to do that. Also when this first came out I didn't know much about skincare so I wouldn't have understood the idea of using a cleansing oil. He was so ahead of his time and everyone has to work hard to catch up with him.

    1. The splashing really made a huge difference. I started doing it again, and I forgot how good it feels, and how effective that method actually is. It's definitely worth taking the time to do! He really was ahead of his time!

  3. Erno Laszlo brings back memories for me too. I was in my early 20's and my roommate bought the full EL line and charged it to her mom's credit card-haha! This oil and the cleansing bar both sound amazing. I love anything that really deep cleans.

  4. I used to buy this oil! It paired so well with Erno Laszlo soaps! My favorite was the pink one for sensitive skin.

    1. I just started using this oil again, but I couldn't even begin to count how many bottles I have used since I was 17! It does pair well with their soaps!
