My all time favourite cleansing oil to remove all my makeup is from SK-II. But that thing is SO EXPENSIVE that I can never repurchase again and again whenever I ran out. While trying to save every last bit of the cleansing oil, which I hold on for dear life, I have been alternating with every other sort of makeup removers. Creams, lotions, micellar water, makeup wipes…you name it. Then came Dr LeWinn’s Essentials 4 Fusion Cleansing Oil. Bye SK-II!
I have my fair share of splurging on expensive makeup remover but this SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil has got to be by far the most luxury and expensive makeup remover cleansing oil I’ve ever had on my face. Phew! That’s a long first sentence to start the review 😀
I’ve always wanted to try this SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil (or FTCO for short). I went through phases when it comes to beauty products, which I believe all of us do. During my “cleansing oil phase”, I was looking at this FTCO online and I was intrigued! First of all, it came from SK-II and when it’s SK-II and it bears the name ‘Facial Treatment’, I immediately thought this product has Pitera™ in it.
When I attended Discovering the secrets behind SK-II’s miracle ingredient, Pitera™ workshop last year, we had a simple Q&A game. I was so nervous just in case I didn’t know my SK-II facts 😛 but I won a full size bottle of Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil. I can’t remember what was the question and I’m pretty sure I was so nervous that I simply answer the question without even knowing what the question really was. None the less I get to strike off a product from my to-buy wishlist.
On the day I drove to Penang, I received an email from Dr. Jart+ informing me that there is a new product in the market and if I would like to try it out. But, I thought Dermaclear Micro Water was launched not long after my first encounter with the product back in August 2014? A few days after I came back to KL, I realized I had forgotten to reply the email and I’ve exceeded the product collection date lol. I’m glad I’m still able to get a bottle to try out because this might just be the product that changed my whole perception and acceptance on the whole cleansing water craze.
Getting back to as why Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water was only brought in now and not last year. Well, Dr. Jart+ told me that the time I had my first hand on the product (August 2014) was just a preview on new product line-up. It is only April 2015 that Dr. Jart+ brought the product into Malaysia and sell it officially 🙂
philosophy: purity is natural. we come into this world with all the right instincts. we are innocent and, therefore, perceive things as they should be, rather than how they are. our conscience is clear, our hands clean and the world at large is truly beautiful. it is at this time we feel most blessed. to begin feeling young again, we must begin with the most basic step of all, the daily ritual of cleansing.
Philosophy products are made to enhance the skin as well as well-being and that is translated into uplifting messages on each bottles and jars. Philosophy said that each of their product has a story and each story speaks to the heart of the brand.
One of my best kept secret is the simplest and shortest time I take to remove all my makeup, cleanse and tone. Obviously the secret is out now that I’m telling you that the secret is this Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes.
As a part of my journey into a more natural skin care products, I thought it only make sense if I were to use equally natural product to remove my makeup as well. I have the perfect product for quite a few months now. Recently I’ve been trying out this A’kin Rose & Geranium Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner, a best seller in the A’kin range to remove my face makeup as well as to cleanse and tone at the same time.
On the box it said that this is a day and night gentle cleanser, a face and eye makeup remover and it contain witch hazel that mildly tones the skin for dry as well as sensitive skin. Oh cool. It’s a 3-in-1 product. I love time saving products 😀
My rotating makeup organizer is looking rather empty on the top outer rim so I thought I could fill it up with something that can fit. Furthermore I had a sudden itch to open up some new products to try. I did a lot of swatches and makeup trial lately no thanks to my sudden itch to try something or a new technique and so breaking into the travel size bottle of Dr. Brandt Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water would be a wise choice.
As you already know, miceller cleansing water is something I don’t fancy using on daily basis. I’m still the cleansing oil / balm / milk kinda girl when it comes to removing makeup. But when I need to remove makeup on a certain part of my face or when I needed to refresh the whole face makeup, I turned to cleansing water. Dr. Brandt Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water is an antioxidant-packed cleanser AND makeup remover for face and eyes.
