Review : Biore Cleansing Oil

To me, make-up cleanser is a very important step at the end of the day. As much as I’d love to look immaculate 24/7, using make-up for an extended amount of time is really bad for the skin, regardless of what brand or how expensive it is.

Quite by chance, reading a review by beauty blogger,Tea Noir made me so intrigued that I wanted one of my own. I couldn’t find it in Rome so I had to wait till I was back in Singapore to get my paws on one.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the Biore Cleansing Oil :

Biore Cleansing Oil

Wait … what? Oil to clean your face?

If you could get over how greasy it is, oils from coconuts and olives actually make good cleansers. It’s not supposed to cause acne since acne is a result of dead skin, hormones and bacteria. Not convinced? Try smearing some cosmetics on your hand and dab a little bit of olive oil and see what happens.

Thank goodness we have formulated cleansing oils that doesn’t feel so greasy.

I’ve been using this cleansing oil since January and I’m liking it so far. Firstly its quite affordable at about $10 SGD and its quite easy to use.

So here I am with my regular make-up on :

And then you squeeze out the cleansing oil in the palm of your hand. I usually need just one pump, you can pump out more but I’m trying to be frugal since I cant find this in Rome.

The oil is transparent, smells nice and fruity.

And then massage it gently all over your face and you’ll see that in no time at all, every bit of make-up gets dissolved.

Be it blusher, waterproof eye-liner, lipstick.

But be extra gentle with the eye area as I’ve read from a number of other reviews that the oil sting their eyes. I didn’t encounter the same issue personally though so I think it could be a new formulation.

And then rinse off the oil with water and admire how nice and clean your face is … Oops! Now you can see my blemishes!

The interesting thing is that after using the cleansing oil, my face feels dry. Which is weird since oil isn’t supposed to make your face dry.

So at this point of time, I’d slap on some moisturiser or if its time for bed, I’d follow up with the rest of my facial care – Cleanser, Toner, Eye Cream and Moisturiser and then dream of pimple and wrinkle free skin.

Have you used the Biore Cleansing Oil before? What do you think of it?

  1. never used the biore cleansing oil.. instead i use baby oil, which works too! hehe. but after that i need to cleanse my face properly. which i do usually, so it’s not a big problem. 🙂

  2. I do use it this at home. It’s especially good for mineral make up but even after rinsing with loads of warm water, it leaves a slightly oily, sticky feeling, so I do another round of washing with my face wash. Then it feels superbly awesome and clean.

    They have a newer range that’s water based. I’m going to finish my old bottle and try that out. Hopefully it doesn’t leave my face feeling oily/sticky.

    Yeah, like you, I guess I can live with the oiliness since I’d be using my cleanser after that anyways so its not such a big deal.

    Hm. Maybe I could use the olive oil after the biore one has run out 😛


    Maybe I’m using a new formulation (I bought it in December) because unlike you, I dont feel the oily and sticky feeling. Instead my skin feels dry!

    Which is strange because oil isn’t supposed to make your skin feel dry isn’t it?

  4. I am getting it soon cause I was very tempted when I was browsing through Watsons yesterday. The bottle has not only a nice colour, it’s cheap, and I also need a new makeup remover. Have been using olive oil since the start of the year.

  5. Holy crap, I got linked on Rinaz’s site – I feel like I’ve made IT HAHAHA. Thank you so much! Wow it didn’t make you tear? I’ve been using this everyday in Australia and there hasn’t been a day where I come out of the toilet with dry eyes lol, it makes me tear like crazy but it does the job so well, I don’t want to use anything else…except my shu uemura cleansing oil which is GODLY but I’m saving it for the day I run out of Biore.

    How is the olive oil working out for you? Did it dissolve mascara alright for you?


    Speaking of Shu Uemura, I dont think I’ve seen it in Rome either! Plentiful of brands that I know in Singapore, I don’t quite see it in Rome.

    Actually, I’ve yet to see *any* cleansing oil at all.

    Different market target I guess 😛

  7. I actually use the tissue form – it’s soaked with the same cleansing oil.

    It’s really good, but sometimes it can’t dissolve my waterproof eyeliner/mascara. For those I use baby oil to clean them instead.
