How about we take a little break from the festive Christmas posts for a bit and tuck into some good old product review yeh? Yes, yes? 😉
So my subject for today?
Lo and behold ..
SULWHASOO’S GENTLE CLEANSING OIL EX!
Sulwhasoo is honestly one of my favourite Korean skincare company. I’ll admit, the product do err on the ‘expensive’ side of things however I feel like an invest is justified if I know the products work (rather than spending bits and pieces on products that are a complete waste of time)! What I particularly LOVE about Sulwhasoo is their holistic beauty approach, ‘beauty of the body and mind, as well as inner and outer beauty’. Sulwhasoo’s products are ‘Hanbang’ products – which means they’re made from traditional ingredients such as Ginseng. These ingredients have been used historically especially amongst Asian women to nurture and protect their skin.
I particularly am in love with Sulwhasoo’s Perfecting Cushion, BB Perfecting Cushion (Brightening) and their Essential First Care Activating Serum EX but now I can finally add another product to that list!
Why? Let’s find out!
Gentle Cleansing Oil EX
For a clear and healthy complexion
An essential first step for nurturing clear and healthier looking skin
This gentle cleansing oil features the key ingredients of Coix Lacryma-Jobi seed, tangerine peel extract, and apricot kernel oil, which clear the skin and leave a brighter and healthier base.
Delicate and smooth oil that cleanses quickly and gently
The delicate action of the oil quickly and gently dissolves makeup effortlessly, without overstimulating the skin.
Clean and refreshing finish
This water-soluble cleansing oil removes makeup and buildup on the skin, leaving a clean and refreshing sensation.
From Sulwhasoo’s Offical Website.
Packaging: Simple. The bottle is made of plastic and comes with a convenient pump. The bottle is light weight making it super travel friendly!
Removing ability: Great! This cleansing oil removes everything! Yes, even my waterproof mascara!
Convenience: Great! I LOVE this cleaning oil because it made my life so so much easier. All I needed was one pump and a thirty seconds face massage and wa-la I’m done!
Scent: Medium-Strong. There was a scent to this product, a classic Sulwhasoo herbal scent that I quite enjoyed. Although it’s not at all overpowering, you may not like it if you’re someone who doesn’t like scented products.
Price: Reasonable. This product retails at $33 AUD, initially I thought this was rather pricey for an oil cleanser. However, this cleanser made my life so much easier and lasted for quite a while. Well worth the price!
For sensitive, combo skin? Yes- for me anyways 🙂 . I’ve always had problems with using makeup removers that are not Micellar Water. My previous experience with makeup removal balms (Banilla Co’s Clean it Zero) and cleansing oils (Face Shop’s Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil) were disasters. My skin broke out and my rosacea exacerbated, so I was super happy that this cleaning oil worked for me! 😀
Claims: Verified. Indeed it does all that it promised. It certainly “cleanses quickly and gently without overstimulating the skin”.
Repurchase? Yes. I most certainly am going to stock up on this cleansing oil, it is by far the best (as easiest) makeup remover I’ve tried yet.
Overall, I love the ideas of cleansing oils because they’re super fast, easy and clean (in a sense that you won’t be left with a bajillion cotton pads after). This Sulwhasoo’s Gentle Cleansing Oil EX was super good at removing all of my makeup in one step – meaning that I’m one step closer to my bed! Definitely a thumbs up from me so be sure to go and try it out!
And that’s all folks!
Until next time,
