Bioderma may be very easy and nice to use but I got tired of it after some time. And seeing that I still have a huge stash of cleansing oils in my skincare drawer, I decided to take out Shiseido AquaLabel Deep Clear Oil Cleansing and started using it. I bought this when I was in Miri last March. I was almost running out of cleansing oil back then hence I bought quite a few bottles in one go. Well, not of the same product but various brands of cleansing oils. Friend thought that I went nuts. Hahaha …
According to some information that I have gathered, Shiseido AquaLabel released different ranges of their skincare products. Just like the usual Shiseido products that’s so famous in the skincare market. As for the blue bottles’ range, it’s for brightening effects. The descriptions or branding was not so obvious as compared to Shiseido White Lucent. So, you might get mixed up once in a while unless you are super duper familiar with the brand. Like myself, I have to check the Internet every time when I decided to purchase this brand to check out which is for brightening and which one is for moisturizing.
I have read and heard so many positive raves about the product. It’s one inexpensive cleansing oil and yet effective at the same time. I used to be skeptical over inexpensive cleansing oils regarding their effectiveness. And when I first tried Kanebo Freshel White C Cleansing Oil, my skepticism towards them completely vanished. That’s when I decided that there is no need to buy those expensive cleansing oils anymore. Hahaha …
LOL! Let’s not get sidetracked anymore. Anyways, the consistency of the liquid is pretty runny as compared to any cleansing oil that I have previously used. I think the consistency is about the same like Shu Uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil that I previously used. Some people may like the scent, but I don’t really like it. It smelled like rose water. At first, I couldn’t pick out the scent. But after a while, I realized that it smelled exactly like “air bandung”. Hence, the main fragrance ingredient for the cleansing oil is most likely to be rose essence.
The cleansing oil was able to emulsify into white milky colour instantly when it gets in contact with lukewarm water. And washing off was easy as well as it doesn’t leave the skin feeling oily and sticky. But unfortunately, this cleansing oil clouds eye vision like most of the cleansing oils which I had previously tried. The cleansing oil cleanses well as I don’t see any dirt stain left on the cotton pad when I wiped Kose Sekkisei Lotion onto my face. And what’s best is that the cleansing oil doesn’t break out on my skin.
2. Cleanses well.
3. Emulsify quickly when gets in contact with lukewarm water.
4. Doesn’t leave any oily or sticky feeling after rinsing off.
5. Doesn’t break out on my skin.
1. Don’t like the scent.
2. Not available in Brunei..
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Price: RM39.90 (~B$16.90)
Repurchase? No (Please do not get the wrong idea, I am not repurchasing because I do not like the scent.)
