The one makeup remover that I’ve gone through bottles and bottles 2 years ago is the Bioré Cleansing Oil. 2 years ago I hated cleansing oil. I never knew about cleansing milk before and cleansing oil is the only product that was introduced to me. I hated it for being oily and messy. I hated it for being such a troublesome to use. I hated it for leaving my face oily and yucky. Then I get to know about cleansing milk all thanks to Clarins and I was on the cleansing milk bandwagon till to date.
Last year I went for a budget shopping at Watsons for the blog. If you missed the post, click here. One of the item that I picked up is the Bioré Cleansing Oil. And of course I need to use all the products I bought so I did. Slowly. Earlier this month I took out the Bioré Cleansing Oil to use and it actually felt really good on my face. I tried to recall why I fell off the bandwagon and hated it because it was really good. My guess is I have no proper idea how to use the product.
So here I am; totally into cleansing oil. I reached for this or my Eve Lom Cleanser (also emulsify to oil) to remove my makeup leaving all my cleansing milk sitting at one corner. Awww I promise I’ll be back milky!
I like that the bottle pump is never faulty, it pumps sufficient product out and comes with a plastic stopper for travelling. The nozzle is slim and long which I appreciate very much. I hate hate hateeee short nozzle because that means my hands would need to be placed nearer to the bottle body and there’s a high possibility that I’ll splash some of the oil onto it. You know I’m a bit of a clean freak with my skin care right?
Using this cleansing oil is really easy. If you still need to email me and ask me how to use this I’ll give you a slap on the butt LOL!
Okay, here’s how I do it. This is just me. You do whatever you think suits you and your liking kay? For my makeup I’d need 3 full pump. You may not need that much but depends on how thick is your makeup. Pump all that onto one palm and warm the cleansing oil with both palm then start making circular motion all over face. When I think I’m done (about 2-3 mins?) I’ll rinse with water. The cleansing oil with makeup residue will just rinsed off leaving no oily or sticky feeling on the face. I have no idea why I think it’s yucky last time lol. Then double cleanse. I normally follow up with another cleanser. Currently I cannot use any other cleanser than Gamila Secret Cleansing Bar. If you are not on Gamila ban, feel free to use any cleanser of your choice.
Actually this cleansing oil is also suitable to be used to remove waterproof mascara according to the label on the back of the bottle. Personally I’ve never tried using this to remove my eye makeup. I prefer to use a separate eye makeup remover first before jumping into the shower to remove my face makeup.
The scent is quite calming. I cannot describe the scent but it does smells like lavender and apple. As long as it smells good right?
For the below I’ve used O’slee HD Flawless Rosehip BB Cream all over my face which I’ll review next week.
Here is the ingredient list for those that are interested. Do take note that this cleansing oil contain mineral oil which some of you are allergic to.
