Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils
Available: Online or your local Shu Uemura counter 🙂
The first cleansing oil that I ever tried since I started wearing makeup for special occasions, and consequently fell in love with, is the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil (High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula). As noted in my previous reviews, I love cleansing oils that emulsified for a rinse-off kind of makeup removal as opposed to a (harsh) tissue off situation. This product did it all for me and still kept my skin soft, supple and hydrated. I stayed faithful to this product for both makeup and makeup-free days throughout my late high school and early university years. I then switched to Bobbi Brown’s Cleansing Oil purely because I wanted to try something new….and thus our relationship ended then.
Fast forward to now, Mama Cappuccino picked up a travel set of the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils on one of her trips, and gifted it to me a couple weeks back. All of those lovely nostalgic memories came back to me when I saw the box – drama performances, graduation, first makeup experiences and the like. Although this travel set didn’t include the original one that I had used back then, I’m excited to try them out as soon as I finish up my Bobbi Brown one:
- Anti/Oxi Skin Refining Anti-Dullness Cleansing Oil
- Blanc: Chroma Brightening & Polishing Gentle Cleansing Oil
- POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil
I’ll keep you all posted 🙂
