If you’ve been reading my bog for a while now, you would know that I am a big fan of using oil cleansers to remove makeup. They work like a charm and there is no scrubbing and tugging involved. I like to try new oil cleansers each time I finish the current one 😀 I I have tired many Shiseido products in the past and they have never disappointed me. This cleansing oil is no exception!
It comes in a nice simple and elegant plastic pump bottle. The oil is very light and silky feeling on the skin. This isn’t the lightest cleansing oil I have tried (If I remember correctly the DHC Cleansing oil feels very light) but it glides very easily over the skin.
I like to take 2 pumps and massage it all over the face. If I am wearing eye makeup then I use an additional pump to clean off all that mascara, liner and eye shadow. It does the job really well and I never find traces of any makeup after using this to remove makeup. I always go in with a foaming cleanser as a second cleanse though.
The oil has a slight fragrance which has not irritated my skin so far..touch wood! If you are very sensitive to fragrances I would not recommend this one. The only other negative I have to mention about this cleanser is the price (35$)! The ingredients are nothing special..it is basically mineral oil and just like in the case of Shu Uemura you are basically paying for the brand name. Just for this reason, and my general obsession with trying out different cleansing oils and balms, I won’t be repurchasing.
Have you tried the Shiseido Cleansing oil?
Until next time,ciao!!
