"Love your skin, give oil a go." - Shu Uemura
This sounds particularly counterintuitive when 80% of my skin is oily.
However, beauty giant Shu Uemura, well known for its highly revered oil cleansers, is determined to reshape my beauty beliefs by extending their cleansing oil line further with the new Blanc:Chroma Brightening and Polishing Gentle Cleansing Oil.
I was invited to a skincare workshop hosted by @shuuemurasg and @clozetteco a few months ago where Shu Uemura demonstrated how oil can dislodge trapped debris in the pores without harshly depleting all moisture like regular soap does. The phrase "Love your skin, give oil a go." was clearly etched in their workshop objectives.
Hmm, we see what you're trying to do, Shu Uemura and we're onto you and all your cleansing secrets! Haha!
Honestly, I've almost forgotten about my 'cleansing oil' roots until the introduction of the new Blanc:Chroma cleansing oil. Micellar Cleansing Water products have been dominating the beauty charts in the past couple of years for its gentle formula so consequently, I also jumped on the bandwagon and switched to water-based products for my makeup removal routine.
This year, Shu Uemura is all out to reclaim its 'Top Cleanser Title' by packing all the indulgence in a bottle.
Let me explain further - so what makes the new cleansing oil so unique is that it is also infused with volcanic clay extract and polishing Lipo HA to gently exfoliate your skin while you remove your makeup. Yes, double the goodness.
I've been using it for two months now and I think it has changed my skincare routine. So did it change for the better? Well, you'll have click on the link in my bio to find out! #Clozette #shuuemura
