To read my first review of this oil click here
When I first started blogging in December 2016 I wanted my blog to be different from other blogs in one way and that is UPDATES.
I aim to update regularly on the products I've raved about. In this way you, the reader will get an understanding if the raved about product stood the test of time.
So often I read blog posts written years ago. And I always wonder if the writer still uses and likes the recommended product.
I am not a professional blogger therefore I don't try tons of products for the sake of writing reviews. I buy what I feel my skin needs and then I write about the experience.
I first wrote about Sulwhasoo's Gentle Cleansing oil back in April 2017, to read that review click on the link at the beginning of this post.
For the past few months I loved using Sulwhasoo's Gentle Cleansing oil and here is why:
I was very happy with how well it removed my make up. But I read some reviews where the consumers were not happy with how well this cleansing oil removed mascara. I don't have the details. Personally, while using this oil I've had no issues with removing make up. I use a mascara by Missha, and this oil removed it quite well. One thing I was very grateful for is that this oil was super gentle on my eye area.
I love the scent of all Sulwhasoo products and this Gentle Cleansing Oil was no exception. To me, this product smelled a bit like Winter or perhaps Christmas. In one of the reviews I read, the customer described the scent as "walking through a lush forest". In any case, the scent is herby, not flowerly, comforting and spa like.
In this luxurious cleansing oil we find herbs like Coix Lacryma-Jobi (Job’s Tears) Seed, Tangerine peel Extracts, apricot kernel oil and other traditional Korean herbs. I find it easy to trust Sulwhasoo's formulations because their brand philosophy agrees with me. Ancient wisdom and knowledge combined with serious science and cutting edge technologies. It sounds great, doesn't it!?
Two pumps are usually enough for my whole face. This cleansing oil melts all my make up and it doesn't irritate my eyes. When I start rinsing it off with water, the oil turns into milk. Then I follow up with another foam cleanser.
Even though I really enjoyed using this cleansing oil, I have not repurchased it because I have other oils I'd like to try. Currently I use The Body shop Camomile cleansing oil and after that I plan on purchasing The History of Whoo cleansing oil. I have great expectations for The History of Whoo cleansing oil. I bet it will smell amazing...
