This is the post that has been requested by some of you, yes, it's the Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Cleansing Oil, hip hip hooray ^^
Hada Labo is loved by many for it's gentle formula and affordable price. So, when they launched the cleansing oil, the product is accepted by the fans with open arms. Now, let's test the effectiveness shall we?!
I'm using a long wear waterproof cover foundation, wait until set and then apply some waterproof mascara, lipsticks, and then the waterproof mascara as well. These are the top three items on the market that famous for being difficult to clean when using makeup.
The oil feels like ... an oil ^^ it is heavier/thicker than the famous cleansing oil but so far so good. It doesn't offer extensive properties, just cleansing oil without over drying the skin since the formula is in the Ultimate Moisturizing family from Hada Labo.
Pour on some cleansing oil directly on the skin without the need to making it wet. The difference between using foaming facial wash and cleansing oil is about the starting point. When using foaming facial wash start with wet skin, cleansing oil? On dry skin. Just like using cleansing milk. But like using foaming facial wash, the cleansing oil need to be rinsed out afterwards after all the makeup are lifted up from the face and become one with the oils.
It does the job beautifully, no makeup traces are left. From the waterproof cover foundation to all of the mascara, eyeliners and lipstick. I did have to wait 2-3 seconds before the oils penetrated into the mascara and eyeliners to completely removed them before massaging the skin gently. Then, add a bit of water to emulsify into this cloudy milky thingy.
Use running water, I rinsed everything away and the skin become so soft and clean at the same time.
When using the products near the eyes, especially on the lashes, careful not to let the oils get into the eyes, handle this problem by using a cotton bud and gently swipe the lashes with the oils while holding a tissue near the lids so the oils wont get into the eyes, or use a lashes brush (from a cleaned mascara brush) and brush it with the oils. Wait 5-10 seconds so the oils breaks the waterproof mascara particles. Rinse everything with water using lashes brush or cotton bud. Then close the eyes and rinse everything out making sure no oils are left behind.
