When I was away in New York, I was in desperate need of a product which would cleanse my skin of the impurities that walking around a city tend to throw at you, which is where Shu Uemura‘s new cleansing oil comes in.
Formulated specifically to remove external pollutants through the inclusion of Moringa and Green Tea extracts, the oil was exactly what I was looking for. Packaged in a convenient pump dispenser bottle, the oil feels wonderful – thick, with a light, fresh, almost citrus scent. To use, all you need to do is splash your face with a little water, pump a little into the palms of your hands and smooth over the entire face. When the oil comes into contact with water it emulsifies becoming light and milky. For a cleanser which feels so light and hydrating, its ability to remove every trace of makeup is impressive. Seriously, any eyeliner, mascara or lipstick completely disappears, and all you are left with is a face which is completely clear of impurities yet without any of the dreaded tightness.
The oil is really a joy to use, and I can’t recommend it highly enough!
150ml costs £29.50 and is available at www.shuuemura.co.uk
