Happy Friday ladies! Tomorrow is gonna be a big day for me as my eye will be zapped..for a good cause!
And I guess I will not be able to use any cleansing oil on my eyes within a month, so let me tell you how this fares now 😉
Hada Labo has launched their cleansing oil a while ago, but it has finally reached Malaysia last month.
It does not contain mineral oil and with olive oil as base.
Don’t be fooled by the yellow bottle, the cleansing oil is actually transparent.
You just need about one pump for the entire face, massage it gently on dry skin. After about 2 minutes, add some water to emulsify the oil then continue for about a minute.
I prefer to cleanse my face first before moving to the eye with harder makeup to remove.
I had some eye makeup on – eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara.
After using Hada Labo cleansing oil.
It cleanses quite well if you spend some time to massage the oil thoroughly. And even the stubborn mascara can be removed quite well!
No additional eye makeup remover is required. It does not leave my skin greasy either after use. However, I always double cleanse, hence I follow up by using cleansing after that.
It fares about the same as Bobbi Brown cleansing oil, only without the nice floral fragrance. At only 1/3 of Bobbi Brown’s price.
Overall, I think it is a value-for-money product, it works much better than Shu Uemura for me, and does not break me out.
If you have been wanting to try a cleansing oil, but are put off by the price of the brands, you might want to give this a go.
Availability: Major pharmacies and hypermarkets
– Keep your eyes close while massaging the oil on your eyes, try not to open right after having it emulsified on your eyes, or you might get the ‘cataract’ vision.
– If you are using this to remove your makeup, it is advisable to follow up with a cleanser, just to make sure the makeup is removed thoroughly, otherwise you might experience breakout.
