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 :
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?
