Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil | Experience The Magic of Milk

A few days ago, I was invited to an event at Shu Uemura. The event was entitled, The Magic of Milk. I thought it was a launch of a cleansing lotion or milk. I thought that they are adding a new product to their cleansing oil line. I was surprised that the event wasn't about it.

Rather, they are re-launching their best-selling pioneer Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. Nina and Patrick explained that some women wary of procuring themselves a bottle of cleansing oil for reason that this product may cause their skin to become a lot oilier. After all, the concept of washing off oil is not plausible in chemistry. Water and oil just don't mix. That was even taught to us at a young age.

But Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil isn't your regular oil.. it's The Magic of Milk. Despite its oil consistensy and feel, this wonder product transforms into a milky substance when water interacts with it. The oil has the capacity and the strength to soften even the toughest foundations and mascaras. Once it interacts with water, it gently emulsifies and effectively removes makeup from your skin. Wash off with water and you're left with a clean, soft and well-moisturized face.

  • Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O Advanced Formula - for aging concerns
  • Fresh Pore Clarifying Cleansing Oil - for pore concerns
  • High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula - for all skin conditions
  • High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Enriched - for fry conditions
  • Brightening Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula - for whitening Concerns
  • Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/I - for sensitive skin

Photos below will show how Patrick applied the Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O advanced formula to melt away the powder foundation and lipstick off of my hand. 

First Step: Dry Face, Dry hands when applying the oil. Slowly Massage until you feel all makeup has melted and soften.

Second Step:  Add a bit of water and gently massage your face. Watch as the oil turns into a milky solution and see how it removes your makeup. Wash it off the milk with lukewarm water and be amazed with how clean and soft your skin is.

I've said it numerous times and I'll it say again. If you love makeup and would want to try more makeup especially those that provide heavier coverage, you need a really good makeup remover. There is no skipping this part. If I am teaching makeup artistry, Makeup Remover is going to be the first thing in the product list that I will be giving out. It's a very important product for me and I never ran out of it because I know that makeup can clog my pores and my cause skin problems like allergies and acne breakouts.

Soap and water isn't enough to melt and remove heavy duty makeup especially for waterproof mascaras and eyeliners. Having a good makeup remover like Shu Uemura is vital in maintaining a beautiful skin.

Another great thing about Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil is that is it also a facial cleanser and their variants target specific skin care concerns. I use the Cleansing Beauty Oil Premiu A/I as it is great for sensitive. Although Fresh Pore Clarifying Cleansing Oil seem to be a better fit for my skin, I find that the Premium A/I soothes my skin really well especially for when I have bad breakouts. And ever since my skin became sensitive due to many skin peeling procedures I've done in the past, this is much milder for my skin.

It's liberating when I know that there is a cleansing oil that will make sure I don't suffer the consequence of being too much of a makeup addict. The possibilities are endless when you know that at night, there is no trace of makeup on your face as you sleep.

Shu Uemura also has their Shu Uemura | A Bridal Show Wishlist which lets you register all your Shu faves and have your friends buy them for you on during their bridal shower. I simply can't wait to do this on December. Will definitely make sure the POC for my bridal shower! I hope someone picks up a Cleansing Oil for me by then.

Buying the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil is one of the best decision I've made. I bought it out of a whim, just because I wanted something that many of my friends kept on raving about. But when I tried it, I was just floored. Although my eyes gets a little blurry at times when I use it, I notice that it gets easier with use. I think it's the only cleansing oil that I've both 2 times in a row.
