Cleansing Oil? Yes, please!
If you have read FD Best of Beauty Awards 2012 – Skincare, you’ll notice that Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil is listed second for the best facial cleanser. I’m here to simply agree.
I’ve always known Shu Uemura for their eyelash curlers and cleansing oil. But, I was one of the many people that have doubts about the idea of cleansing oil. Oil, to cleanse the skin, really? The idea of slathering oil all over my face isn’t exactly an amusing thought, it’s quite repulsive to be honest. But hey, that was back then.
I went to a Shu Uemura Beauty Workshop quite a while ago and finally got the chance to try out the legendary cleansing oil. I was surprised to find out that they have 6 varieties catered for different skin types and needs. I tried the one that’s suited for dry and sensitive skin. I was more than impressed and finally bought one for myself a week later.
The one that I purchased is the Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/I.
The instructions suggested to use 3-4 pumps, but I find one pump and (less) a half is enough for my whole face. This isn’t cheap, so I want to make sure I don’t waste any product. Even so, it still works wonderfully, just as promised.
I think the important key here is to massage it well over the skin before emulsifying it with water. That way, the oil could really seep into the makeup, breaking it down. It removes my Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara and my red lipsticks in almost no time at all. (more…)
