Flashback love: Shu Uemura cleansing oils

{Advanced skincare cleansing oils}

I was hesitant to write about these cleansing oils when I first received them. As an avid Biotherm user I’m reluctant to write about anything else never mind recommend it but by jove these cleansing oils blew me away.

The gorgeous scents and softening texture has me hooked on this as part of my daily make-up removing routine. I initially though these wouldn’t be the best idea for my combination skin but I found that that’s a rookie assumption to make. The oils left my skin feeling baby-soft and remarkably clean.

At $79-$89 they may seem unaffordable but they actually work out to be better value for money than mid-market cleansing oils out there. Shu Uemura is a luxury brand but these oils are absolutely worth the price tag when you see the size of these bottles. 450mls of pure, cleansing luxury and at that size the bottles last a long while.

To use these oils you simple take two small pumps of the product, rub it between your hands to warm it up, then smooth all over the face focusing on harder to cleanse areas like the eyes and lips. Then, add some warm water to emulsify the product and continue to cleanse. Finally, rinse off for perfectly clean skin.

The Mamechiyo designed Fuji bottle was limted edition and is no longer available but the same oils in the regular packaging (as shown in the green bottle) are available now at Holt Renfrew.
