Actual Product Pic:
This is a SAMPLE.
Texture & Scent:
This cleansing oil feels just a little thicker than the usual cleansing oils. It emulsifies once it comes into contact with water as usual, and it rinses clean. I love how soft this made my skin felt! I was a little disappointed that this one smells more spicy than citrusy... i thought it would smell something like my MAC Cleanse Off Oil since this one has Bitter Orange in it too!
The one i got is a sample. The real thing comes in a pump bottle! :D
Price & Availability:
This cleansing oil is priced at RM99 (approx US$27.50). There's a 450ml version as well going for RM260. This should be available at most Shu Uemura counters! :)
Ahhh, i finally got to try out the much raved and ohsopopular Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil! :D
I know most people who've used this one either love it or hate it! Personally i don't really hate it, but i wished it did live up to its claim for me! :(
While this did remove most of the makeup from my face nicely (and left my skin really soft after), it did not remove glitters well. Also i find that i have to use a little more product and massage my face longer to get all the makeup off!
Ok, here're some pics for you to see:
This is my makeup plastered face (FOTD here):
Makeup removed from left side using this:
A closer look:
There're still quite a bit of glitters left behind!! :(
Since the only other Cleansing Oil i have is the MAC Cleanse Off Oil, i'll do a side by side comparison just in case anybody is interested:
It's obvious which one i preferred more!! lol!! :D After sampling several cleansing oils, the MAC one still reigns supreme for me in terms of product efficiency and scent (lol!!)! I won't repurchase this because of this reason, and also because i sometimes break out from products containing mineral oil, so i'd skip just to be on the safe side!
Have you tried this cleansing oil before? How didcha find it? :D
