Product Review: Shu Uemura High Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O


photo taken from www.sephora.com

What it is:
A two-in-one cleanser and makeup remover.

What it is formulated to do:
High Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O provides antiaging and antioxidant skin purification that thoroughly cleanses the skin while protecting it against the internal and external aggressions associated with aging. Leaves skin smooth and protected without stripping it of its natural oils.

What else you need to know:
shu uemura's #1 selling Cleansing Oil. Suitable for all skin types.

Like it says, this is Shu Uemura's bestselling cleansing oil. It's most probably for the antioxidant properties it has. I haven't been using it enough to see if my skin has gotten more youthful, but I'll give a little of what I think about.

The first thing that I noticed is that it doesn't emulsify as well as the pink one. I don't know if it's just me. I'm no expert on cleansing oils. It also didn't leave my face as zit-free as the pink one. Well, the pink one is the one that is meant for oily skin so I can't hold it against this variant. However, in the time span that I was using this, I got two compliments from my guy friends who asked me if I was doing something different with my face since my skin looked nice. Hmmm.... I don't know if it's because of this variant or the prolonged effect of using this plus the week before when I was using the pink variant.

Like the other cleansing oils, I can actually get away without using moisturizer at night since it leaves my face moist.

Will I buy this again? Like I said, I have to wait until I've tried all the oils to decide which one I'm going to buy.
