I couldn’t help it.
I had to bust out one of the bottles from the travel set and try it out before my trusty Bobbi Brown one had run out 🙂
As one of Shu Uemura’s most popular cleansing oil, it targets dull skin caused by daily environmental issues (i.e. pollution), and for those concerned with anti-aging. There are a total of six different cleansers to target the needs of specific skin types, but they all commonly remove makeup gently and effectively while maintaining the skin’s natural level of moisture. The Anti/Oxi cleanser is not only supposed to remove makeup, it is also supposed to work deep into your pores to remove dirt and sweat as well as pollutants that can speed up the aging process of your skin.
I took about one pump of the oil and massaged in onto my mug that’s full of makeup – minus my eye makeup as I prefer to use a separate product for that area. The instructions on the box says to use 3 to 4 pumps but frankly, one pump is more than enough and that’s a pretty awesome aspect given the price of this cleanser 🙂 There was a surprising yet soothing earthy, woodsy, herbal smell mixed with a hint of sweet ginger and lime when I initially massaged it onto my face but the smell didn’t linger once I washed my face.
I really like how my skin felt refreshed and clean without feeling tight afterwards – the light scent was definitely a bonus 🙂 In addition, the packaging made this a winner in my book as it’s a twist-lock pump that makes it pretty easy to take along for travel 🙂
