Shiseido Hada Senka Perfect Watery Oil Review

Thoughts

I got the Perfect Watery Oil in a Shiseido Hada Senka set I bought! I haven’t really tried out many other cleansing oils because I’ve been very happy with my current cleansing oil. But since this one came in a set I was glad to try since it was small enough that if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t be too unhappy about getting rid of it.

When it comes to cleansing oils I want ones that don’t feel overly oily on my face. Why? I feel ones that are overly heavy tend to stay on the face even after rinsing. Of course, the most important aspect is that it removes makeup and able to leave you feeling clean afterwards

The first thing I noticed about the Senka cleansing oil is that it doesn’t spread on the face very easily. Perhaps it’s due to the more watery nature, I’m not sure. It seems like I have to use a lot more product to be able to cover my whole face. It doesn’t seems to have a harder time to melt the makeup on my face, which also plays into me using more product. Although it seems to be doing fine with makeup removal department, it just needs a lot more product than others I’ve used.

I do not feel a thick layer of oil on my face though after I rinse it off so it gets points for that. Since it doesn’t leave a film, I haven’t experienced any acne from using the product, which also gets points.

Overall the product does its job. It’s not the best I’ve tried but it’s also not the worst I’ve tried either. If you’ve been having trouble finding a lighter formula then I’d say, give this one a try.

Luxebox Winter 2012

For the winter Luxebox they placed all the items inside a drawstring bag inside the box instead of just placing it into the box and wrapping it up! Sorry I forgot to include the kabuki brush in the picture with all the items! If Luxebox keeps things up, I would be sooo happy. They’ve been impressing me with the Fall box and this Winter box ::^^::.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Oil Review


This mild, easily washable cleansing oil contained with Jeju organic green tea moisturizing, antioxidant ingredients softly removes point makeup and gives an easy finish just by washing off with water.

I’ve used a product from their Green Tea line before and I thought it was alright. I wasn’t really fond of the smell which I thought smelled a bit like men’s deodorant instead of a refreshing scent that I was expecting. I wanted to get a bottle of cleansing oil and originally I wanted to try the apple one but then I saw the eco-friendly packaging for the Green Tea line.

The Green Tea line is made with 100% organic green tea from Jeju Island. The selling point for me though was that they sell refills! I think Innisfree is moving towards a greener image because they have since added refills for their apple and olive cleansing oils. They’ve also changed the packaging for the refill bag too! The original bottle retails for 16,000₩ whereas the refill is priced at 11,000₩ both with 150mL.

To use this I massage this onto dry skin. Slowly I add a bit of water to my fingers and rub it onto face to emulsify the oil. Afterwards I rinse my face and wash it with a cleanser to remove the oil and makeup.

I really like this cleansing oil. It removes all my makeup in one go. I don’t need to use an eye makeup remover before using this. People that have trouble removing Majolica Majorca mascara (which is known to be hard to remove) don’t need to buy the remover MM makes for their mascaras.

The smell is something I guess I got used to. I will probably buy the apple cleansing oil to see if there’s a difference since they have refills now too. Still I would recommend this one to anyone looking for a good cleansing oil.
