Review | Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover

Tuesday, 7 January 2020



Unlike cleansing waters, milks, creams, balms and even oils, I hardly venture into trying different eye makeup removers because I don't use them as frequent as I need to; I'd rather use a single product to remove all of my makeup that I have been wearing throughout the day at one go when I shower.

However, there are times when I don't want to get into the shower (where I line all my oil-based cleansers on my bathroom shelf) right away but desperately want to at least remove my waterproof eye makeup. This is where having a separate eye makeup remover can actually be helpful. Before I go in-depth into this product, let's get into some basic information first.



What you need to know! It's a gentle yet powerful water-based eye makeup remover.
  • For eyes and lips
    • Dual effect of water layers containing lotion-based cleansing ingredients and oil-based emollient layers effectively lift and remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner effortlessly without rubbing and tugging.
  • Contains vitamin B and E derivatives for added skin nutrients 
    • Contains 2 types of moisturising ingredients which moisturize and is gentle to your delicate eye areas and eyelashes.
  • Colourant-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic formulation
  • Skin patch and allergy tested.
  • Contains Alkanediol (Pentylene Glycol) as moisturising agent.
How to Use:
  1. Shake well before use
  2. Dispense some suitable amount of product onto cotton pad and wipe gently. Rubbing is not required as product works by lifting makeup rather than melting it away.
  3. To remove stubborn mascara, hold cotton pad against eye for awhile before gently wiping off
  4. Remove contact lenses before use.
Capacity: 145ml - about 4 months of daily use with cotton pads.

Ingredients list: Water, Mineral Oil, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Alcohol, PEG-400, PCA Ethyl Cocoyl Arginate, Disodium EDTA, Pentylene Glycol, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate


PACKAGING

 


Basically, the product comes with a plastic cover to seal the whole product and there are only Japanese product descriptions printed on the actual bottle. The Manufacturing Date is printed at the bottom of the bottle itself and the format is MFGDDMMYY (Day-Month-Year).

 

The product doesn't come with a pump or anything; just regular screw cap with a simple stopper at the neck of the bottle.

As you  can see, the product is a dual-phase makeup remover so it is imperative for you to shake the bottle to mix the oil and water parts of the product so you can remove all kinds of makeup you have on.


APPLICATION



I'm going to attempt to remove some waterproof makeup products that I have and here are some that I've been obsessing a lot lately; Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara, NYX Lingerie Eye Tint, Shu Uemura Matte Supreme Matte and Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain as I'm all about long-wearing makeup these days.

I have swatched all the products at the back of my hand to show you how well this eye and lip makeup remover work!

 

I've dispensed some of the product directly onto the textured cotton pad, usually 3 to 4 drops and just let it sit on the products (on my eyelids) for a good 10 seconds.

Then, slowly wipe the pad away from the eyelid. As this makeup remover is quite watery, be careful not to let the product go into your eyes.


THOUGHTS



As you can see in the above photo, the only makeup item that were not completely removed are the eye, cheek and lip tints with their colours still visible on skin but as for the rest of the makeup, not even the slightest hint can be seen so I do think this oil cleanser does its job quite well. I bet most of you know that the products that aren't removed are quite known for their long-lastingness which is why I would rather to simply use cleansing oils to remove them altogether.



Overall, I give this product 4/5. I still do like this eye and lip makeup remover even after trying several other removers mostly from Korean brands as this product basically removes all traces of other eye makeup that I have.

When I'm not using base makeup, there is no need to use cleansing oil but I still need to remove waterproof eye makeup. For that I will use cleansing wipes or sheets to remove my sunscreen for the day and pour several drops of this remover onto the sheet and simply wipe away my mascara, eyeliner, and even brow mousse.

This makeup remover does not irritate, make my eyes blur or anything. Also I found that a little goes a long way with this product making it considerably affordable with the amount of product I get. I've recently finished my first bottle and now I'm on my second one with the newer packaging design.

You might have noticed that this product (as with most Japanese skincare products available in drugstores) contains mineral oil.  This may deter some from getting it but I personally don't have any issues with that ingredient as I'm actually more concerned with fragrance that may potentially irritate the skin.


I guess that's all from me and I hope this review helps you in some way but do let me know if you have any thought by leaving comments down below. Annyeong~


Blogger Mail | AXIS-Y Climate-based Skincare

Saturday, 4 January 2020



I first saw this brand when it was featured on @faafirds as she was visiting a Beauty Expo few months ago and I was intrigued by the brand's concept of climate-based skincare products so I'm so glad to receive these considerably new products 2 weeks ago which you probably saw my Instagram Stories anyway. 


As you can see above, the brand sent me 3 products in total; exfoliating toner, barrier-repairing treatment product and to top these all off, a duo-moisturiser. Now that I'm done testing these on my equally-sensitive neck area for a week, I'm going to incorporate them into my daily skincare routines except for the BHA-containing exfoliating toner; 2 to 3 times a week maximum. I'm looking forward to try the ampoule mostly because I'm in the middle of restoring my skin barrier and I have been indulging myself in Centella Asiatica-based serums and ampoules so this is  simply timely to my skin condition. So far, I have only tried a duo sleeping mask so hopefully the moisturiser works well in sealing all of skincare products.

I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~

I know it's weird to post Best Nine of 2019 here in my blog but hey! I just want to take this time to brag to the lot of you here, showing off my posts with the most engagement i.e. Likes and Comments.... no, I don't. Not really. Why? Let me just break it down for you by telling the stories behind each and every of the post above, quickly I promise. 

I'm gonna go by going from the bottom right to the left towards the top simply because I want to. 
  1. My first bathroom #shelfie ever! | I have to admit, I needed to clean out so many unrelated things on that very shelf right before lining my opened makeup removers, facial cleansers and at the bottom shelf, my shower creams, shampoos and whatnot. Took me about an hour before I can actually take a decent photo but I'll say this, Sunday afternoon that's well-spent.
  2. My lineup of products that by far is the most solid routine for sensitive skin days. | In my days as beauty blogger, I need to try and test many products with some goes into my routine permanently (till I actually finished them), some give me breakouts that I usually giveaway to people who want to take the risk, some doesn't do much to my skin that I usually just finish by using on my arms and legs while some products that thoroughly help my skin in terms of repairing my damaged skin barrier, smoothing out the dead flaky skin which deserves to be repurchased till the day I die or as long as I need it to. More than half of the products lined up above included in the last category.
  3. Althea launched their budget-friendly face masks | let's just be honest. I was an Althea Angel i.e. ambassador and I love sheet masks. Couldn't be happier while hoarding these!
  4. the beginning of my obsession with layering serums in my skincare routine | Started with the two and now I can even layer up to 4 serums whenever I have extra time or how sleep-deprived I actually am before beginning my night skincare routine.
  5. Sponsored post for a local brand | All I'm saying the product is merely average but for price point and choice of colours for Malaysian skin tone, okay la.
  6. #pinkwednesday and I can't feel more girlier than that post | I don't own a lot of products in pink bottles but when I gathered most that I have in a single pic like that, I feel cute. haha indulge me!
  7. Beauty fridge. | Oh dear. so I bought this beauty fridge simply because I want to get back to using sheet mask on daily basis but then I ended up filling it with my toners and toners and more toners. haha i didn't think much of how this going to affect my whole engagement but yeah. My followers seems to like this beauty trend.
  8. Krave Beauty family portrait | I'd say I had the worst FOMO fever when Krave release their moisturiser! I bought it the second it's launched on their Global site and dipped my hands (nope, spatula!) into it the second it arrived at my door.
  9. My biggest collaboration, the first one through a PR company | OMG, I still can't believe Clarins picked me to receive their best-selling serum. I love it so much! I'm trying my best to finish my other serums so I can get back to using this, really. Also, dual-phase serum is mind-blowing to me as it's perfect for my dehydrated skin.

Honestly, this may come as a surprise to you but the above Best Nine posts are quite effortless compared to my other posts that I worked on harder in terms of shooting and creating the contents for the photos. I'm a bit disappointed actually but it's alright because this is just social media. 

I guess that's all from me. I'll see you guys on my next post. Annyeong~



Review | LANEIGE Clear C Advanced Effector EX

Tuesday, 17 December 2019




For the first few years of my skincare journey with South Korean beauty products, I have learned several ways to boost the effect of brightening skincare products that I was using to give my skin somewhat faster results but the initial concept is actually to give way for the rest of the products to be well-absorbed into skin by removing the dead skin cells rather gently.

Unlike recent years, there were not much of choice when it comes to exfoliating skincare products as it was either using physical exfoliators like scrubs and peeling gels or first treatment essences filled with fermented extracts, witch hazel extracts, black sugar extracts; basically ingredients that can help making skin even smoother. In today's market, we have acid-containing treatment products like exfoliating toners and high-percentage of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy-Acid (BHA) even Poly-Hydroxy-Acid (PHA) essences or serums which are known as chemical exfoliators.

But before deciding on which of these exfoliating products to be incorporated in your skincare routine, you should know the kind of ingredients that your skin can actually tolerate and the intensity of the ingredients itself before buying so today I'm going to share about this antioxidant-filled skincare booster which gives brighter and healthier complexion.




Product Description Vitamin booster with 92.5% super berry extracts that have clarifying effects, giving you a brighter complexion. Contains 92.5% super berry extracts rich in vitamin C
  • Anti-oxidizing super berry extracts for skincare. Extracts from acerola cherry and acai berries, super berries with four times’ anti-oxidizing effects of Vitamin C, prevent skin from oxidizing to help you achieve a healthier appearance.
  • Clean and even brightening care. Clear C, LANEIGE's original essence, contains Melacrusher and super berry extracts, components with 3.5 times’ brightening effect when used together for bright, clear skin.
  • Water-type booster for fast absorption. The water-type formula is quickly absorbed by skin as it moisturizes. Unlike most water-based essence, the container comes with a pump that makes it easier to dispense.
How to Use: Use the enclosed dual-textured cotton for day and night care. Capacity: 150ml  

Ingredients list: Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Propanediol, Alcohol, Niacinamide, Butylene Glycol, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Melia Azadirachta Extract, Prunus Mume Fruit Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Glutathione, Glycerin, Lecithin, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Adenosine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Water, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

PACKAGING


 

As you can see, the product comes with its own set of cotton pads housed within the bigger box. There's a short product description at the back of the box itself but this product actually comes with its own information leaflet for your guide and reference. The small Distributor sticker indicates that the product is legally distributed by the brand's Malaysian official distributor, AmorePacific Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Period After Opening is 12 Months however it's better to finish the product as soon as you can once it's opened as my concern is that the product might have gone oxidised which I personally don't know for sure because the longest I take to finish the product is just 4 months.


 

There is infographic printed at the back of the cotton pad box for you to follow on how to gently drag the cotton pad across the facial area according to skin concerns. During the day, I'd pour the product onto the wave-patterned side of the cotton pad to smooth out my skin while at night, I'd use the smooth side of the pad and tap my facial area gently with it.


 

The product comes in that pretty, transparent pink glass bottle and again, there's English simple product description printed at the back of the bottle with the product expiry date printed at the bottom. The format is YYYYMMDD (Year-Month-Day).


 


The product comes with a lovely pump that dispenses sufficient amount of product that I need which is usually 3 to 4 pumps. Now, there's indicator at the side of the bottle that supposedly marks product usage on daily basis so it is assumed that the product needs to be finished within 30 days or so.


APPLICATION


 

The product comes in very watery texture so it is recommended that it is to be used by pouring it onto cotton pads and swipe the pad along the facial area, from inner to outer area of the face. Evidently, the product does help with removing my dead skin cells.


THOUGHTS



When it comes to exfoliating dead skin cells off my face these days, I'd prefer to use chemical exfoliators; Glycolic Acid (AHA)-containing exfoliating toner like 2 to 3 times a week depending on my skin condition at the time and I'm using first treatment essence like this as the first product to apply right after cleansing  in between those days.

It has such a lovely watery texture that I can use it on daily basis and there are times when I actually finished a single bottle within merely a month or so but as I do alternate this product with other products with similar functions, I usually finish 3 to 4 bottles within a year.

I never exfoliate my skin when I'm having sensitive skin days or just having bad reactions due to testing new skincare products but I'm glad I still can use this I'd refer to as first treatment essence now by just applying it directly onto skin without cotton pads because even cotton pads can cause irritation sometimes. I'd be tapping my fingers gently on my face until the essence is well absorbed into skin before applying the rest of my skincare products.



I still do love this product very much even after all these years as it helps with maintaining my overall skin health, complexion and makes my skin feeling smoother and softer right after every application.

I love that I can incorporate this product easily into my skincare routine especially a routine that mainly focuses on brightening the skin as I have used brightening skincare line from the brand, White Plus Renew for several rounds and I have definitely seen better result compared to when I didn't have this booster in my first round of it.

Talk about ingredients in this product, I'd like to highlight that this product does contains Alcohol however it doesn't make my skin feeling drier or anything but I always have hydrating toners, essences, serums even ampoules in my routine as I cannot afford not to have humectants, emollients and occlusives to seal all the moisture in the layers of skin so I definitely suggest for you to avoid alcohol-containing skincare products if you have dry skin.

If there's one thing that I don't like about the product is the fact that the bottle is made from glass which has broken once before as my hand slipped off the bottle but again, it's so pretty so I guess I'll just have to be very careful all the time.


I guess that's all from me and I hope this review helps you in some way but do let me know if you have any thought by leaving comments down below. Annyeong~


Review | Mamonde Rose Water Toner & Toner Pad

Thursday, 14 November 2019


Hydrating toners are currently my favourite steps in my daily skincare routines as it is a huge part of my therapeutic self-care ritual where I would be layering my hydrating toners; sometimes with numbers of different hydrating toners but most of the times, I would be using a single toner and apply 3 to 7 times depending on the hydrating power of the toner itself or simply how dry my skin at that point of the day.





MAMONDE ROSE WATER TONER





Product Description Rose Water Toner contains 90.97% Rose water,with soothing and moisturising effects, offering greater hydration with each swipe on skin:
  • Building a water-based moisture barrier on the skin
  • Exceptional soothing and moisturising effects of the Damask Rose
  • Formulated without 7 ingredients - Free of animal ingredients, mineral oil, polyacrylamide, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanolamine, silicone oil, synthetic colour.
How to Use: After cleansing, take appropriate amount of the product onto cotton pad and wipe across the face, from inner to outward of facial area. Tap the skin lightly to let the excess absorbed into skin nice and even. Capacity: 250ml

Ingredients List:
Damask Rose Extract (90.97%),
Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylate/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance, Purified Water, Sucrose, Prunus Mume Fruit Rosehip Fruit Extract, Indole Acetic Acid.



PACKAGING



 

As you can see in the above photos, the product comes in that transparent pink plastic bottle. There's no English product description nor label sticker so all the information you need is in the section above and there is a product expiry date printed at the bottom of the bottle with the format being YYYYMMDD (Year-Month-Day).



 

The product doesn't come with a pump or anything; just a simple cap with seal that needs to be removed before using and with the small hole at the cap, I'd say it's easy to dispense the toner whether on cotton pads or your palm. I'd recommend for you to decant into smaller bottle if you were to travel with this one or even better, a spray bottle as you can surely use this toner as facial mist.


APPLICATION



 

The product has a watery texture which is quickly absorbed into the skin and I know the scent is quite overwhelming for some but for me, none whatsoever plus I love the rosy scents; good thing that it doesn't irritate my skin or anything.



THOUGHTS



I find this toner is simply hydrating and thanks to its lightweight watery texture, I have been using it a lot in both of my morning and evening skincare routines. I am optimising it's usage by layering the toner 3 to 7 times in the morning and then followed up with applying my daily serum, lightweight moisturiser and physical or tone-up sunscreen of the day.

At night, I always apply this toner after my exfoliating Glycolic Acid; alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)-containing toner to simply hydrate my skin because I find my skin tends to feel even drier if I don't pile on layers of hydrating products on top. Also, it's actually even better when I add soothing toner on top of this and that's how I gather the ultimate trio to treat my dehydrated flaky facial area.




MAMONDE ROSE TONER PAD



  • Product Description
Cotton pads soaked in Rose Water Toner that can be used as a toner or a sheet mask.
  • Soothing, moisturising effects of Damask Rose Water. The brand have picked damask roses that were grown in morning dew to deliver soothing and moisturising effects to the skin.
  • Long-lasting moisture barrier. Goes on light on the skin without stickiness and creates a moisture barrier for long-lasting hydration.
  • Formulated without 7 ingredients - Free of animal ingredients, mineral oil, polyacrylamide, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanoamine, silicone oil, synthetic colour.
How to Use: Use the toner pad as a mask!
  • Take out the pads and leave on the cheeks, forehead, chin, and other spots like a sheet mask. Remove after 10~15 minutes and lightly tap on the residue to absorb.
  • When used instead of cleansing in the morning or as a toner, wipe across the face following the flow of skin texture and lightly tap on the residue to absorb.
  • Leave the pads on the face while drying hair or applying lip & eye makeup. Remove the pads and then apply base makeup for an effective use.
Capacity: 40 pads, 80ml

Ingredients list:
Damask Rose Extract (90.97%), Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylate/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance, Purified Water, Sucrose,  Prunus Mume Fruit Rosehip Fruit Extract, Indole Acetic Acid.




PACKAGING


 

As you can see on the above photos, the product comes in that pink tub with screw lid. There’s simplified Korean product description at the side of the tub and there is a product expiry date printed at the bottom of the tub and the format is YYYYMMDD (Year-Month-Date).




If you're familiar with regular daily sheet masks from AmorePacific brands like Innisfree, the sheet is similar to the sheets of the sheet masks; thin, perforated and can hold the liquid in it for about 10 to 15 minutes, provided that you're not sitting under a fan or it'll dry out even quicker.



 

Single pad is actually quite big as it covers my cheeks area rather sufficiently and adheres well onto my facial area too. As the pad is quite thin and if you feel the toner pad is rather insufficient you can simply add more toner of your choice by pouring directly onto the sheet in small amount.

For hygienic reason, do not try to recycle the pad as I'm pretty sure the pads are merely for single use only.




THOUGHTS




Having both products in my skincare collection is great! While the bottled toner serves its whole purpose to hydrate my dehydrated normal to oily skin in this hot and humid weather, the toner pad however is simply a convenient or at some point, a luxury for me because every time I use the toner pad, I keep on adding more toners after 10 minutes or so. Now that I'm halfway through the tub, I am definitely sure that I would rather getting actual rose daily sheet masks compared to this as I can source compressed sheet mask from drugstore myself these days.

Bottom line, definitely get the toner because it nicely hydrates the skin and you can use it as simple toner after cleansing, toner masks even as liquid medium if you were to mix it with powder wash-off masks for example clay masks and by mixing hydrating toner like this with it, you can still get a little bit of hydration while letting the clay ingredients pulling out all the impurities off your skin.


I guess that's all from me and I hope this review helps you to choose which of the five that you want to pick up or try next. Let me know your thoughts by leaving comments down below. Annyeong~


Review | Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil

Tuesday, 15 October 2019


There are many type of makeup removers out there; from cleansing wipes, micellar waters, oil-based cleansers, etc but for me, I would go for cleansing oils mostly as I use waterproof sunscreens (and mascara) and cushion foundations on daily basis. During travels, I will be opting for oil-based cleansing wipes for convenience but for everyday use, I would prefer to use cleansing oils or sometimes cleansing balms which are basically oil-based cleansers too. 

These days, there are a lot of beauty brands releasing their own cleansers but when it comes to cleansing oil, Shu Uemura is the first brand to launch cleansing oils in Japan back in the 60s so when I finally got the chance to invest a little bit more for a makeup remover, I decided to get my first bottle of this Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil. So first things first, let's go to some basic information on the product.




Product Description:
  • Empowered with a unique green trio, the new generation green cleansing oil is designed to eliminate micro-sized pollutants such as PM2.5 as well as protein stains.
  • It effortlessly removes makeup including waterproof mascara and long-lasting lipstick, leaving no residue while protecting skin's moisture veil.
  • Dull look is reduced resulting is refined, supple and youthful radiant skin.


Highlighted ingredients:
  • Papaya extract known to contain papaya protease, a powerful yet gentle exfoliator to polish away protein stains.
  • Green tea extract known for its antioxidant properties.
  • Moringa extract known for its anti-pollution properties.


How to Use:
Dispense 3 to 4 pumps of cleansing oil onto dry palms
Gently smooth over the face.
Wet the face to emulsify the cleansing oil.
Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Capacity: 150ml - about 3 to 4 months of daily use.

Ingredients list: 
Zea mays, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Isopropyl Myristate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polybutene, Polyglyceryl-10 Dioleate, Polyglyceryl-6 Dicaprate, Polyglyceryl-2 Oleate, Phenoxyethanol, Limonene, Isopropyl Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Dicaprylyl Ether, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Tocopherol, Linalool, Glycine Soja Oil, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Glycerin, Aqua, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Disodium Phosphate, Citric Acid, Carica Papaya Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Parfum.

  

The cleansing oil comes in its own box and as with most anti-pollution products that I'm familiar about, it is in that pretty green colour. On the side of the box, there are product information printed in Japanese, English, French, Chinese even Korean. That's so amazing in my opinion, as expected from premium brands.


  

The product is housed within that sleek and sturdy bottle. Turn it horizontally and you can find product information and instruction on the bottle too. The pump is unlike your typical pumps as you can actually turn it to open or close it so this is a great feature especially when I'm travelling domestically; I would just pack this into my toiletries bag without the worry it might spill or decant into smaller bottle even.


APPLICATIONS



As I have mentioned earlier, I always go for cleansing oils to remove heavy waterproof makeup products therefore I'm going to show you guys how this cleansing oil works with some of the toughest waterproof makeup I have in my stash; black mascara, matte liquid lipstick, liquid eyeshadow tint and cushion foundation.

This cleansing oil is considerably light in texture with a slight scent to it which doesn't bother me at all and definitely non-irritating to my skin.


 


I've dispensed some of the product directly onto the makeup (without adding water to it), usually 3 to 4 pumps for my whole facial area and gently massage my skin in circular motion for several minutes or until all the makeup melted off with it; the oil changes colour once it's mixed with the makeup. There is no need to roughly rub my skin in the effort of melting off the stubborn makeup and just let the oil works its way.

Then, add some water to emulsify the oil; forming the milky oil in water which can remove both oil and water-soluble impurities in a single step.


THOUGHTS




As you can see in the above photo, all trace of makeup is gone! Up to having this product in my cleansing routine, none of my oil-based cleansers actually have the ability to remove the most stubborn liquid eyeshadow and I usually left with blue dye around my area for days before it is gone on its own. Excellent cleansing job!


Overall, I give this product 5/5. I just had to! It works so well, easy and quick. I must admit that after practicing double cleansing for years now, I am having doubts when it comes to ditching my second water-based cleansers but after awhile, I'm getting used to just using this cleansing oil to thoroughly remove my makeup of the day; oftenly take a bit extra time to rinse it off with lukewarm water. My skin feels fresh, clean in a good way; no pulling or tightening and I have never seen any visible impurities on my cotton pad after running it across my facial area with toner.


Shu Uemura offers several different cleansing oils and all are suitable for all skin types. The reason I chose this cleansing oil as the first one from the brand is because I'm always exposed to dirts and debris whenever I'm outdoor; just one of the common challenges living in the city but you can surely pick one that suits your concerns and needs.


I guess that's all from me and I hope this review helps you to choose which of the several variants of cleansing oil that you want to pick up or try next. Let me know your thoughts by leaving comments down below. Annyeong~
