Review: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil

Decided to do a skincare product review today as I thought you might be feeling bored with all the food reviews. To be honest, I am feeling bored with all the food blog entries. So, here comes a skincare product review for today.

I will be going on an overnight trip to Miri next weekend with San Diann and Clara. Our main intention is food hunting but mine is more extensive. I planned on skincare and clothes shopping, food hunting and massaging. So, I will be going leaving for Miri in the morning while the two of them will leave after lunch. So, that gives me plenty of time to do what I intended to do while waiting for them to arrive.

Without further ado, let’s get started with the review for Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil

This is my second bottle of this cleansing oil. I bought the first bottle earlier this year shortly after the product was launched. Fell in love with the texture and performance straight after I used it. So, I bought another two bottles from the aunt of my colleague as it was a lot cheaper to buy in Malaysia than in Brunei.

The cleansing oil came housed in a tall plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The dispenser has a locking system which you do not have to worry about spillage if you were to bring the cleansing oil with you while traveling.

According to the product’s website, this cleansing oil is able to dissolves all impurities and makeup while nourishing your skin with essential lipids, including Omega 3, 6, 9 and Vitamin E. This luxurious oil transforms into a milky emulsion that washes off completely to leave your skin clean, soft and nourished, never dry or greasy. 

I do have to agree with the above statements. The cleansing oil does leave skin clean, soft and nourished, never dry or greasy. The cleansing oil has a nice but somehow fruity scent. The consistency is in between thick and runny. Take two to three pumps of the cleansing oil and gently massage onto dry face in circular motion. Take as much time as you need as the longer the better for the cleansing oil to remove makeup or dirt stuck inside the pores.

Dissolve the cleansing oil with a little bit of lukewarm water before rinsing off completely. I would use a piece of The Body Shop Organic Cotton Pad to wipe off the emulsified oil before rinsing completely with lukewarm water and then followed with my daily facial cleanser as double cleansing.

I like that the cleansing oil does not leave my skin feeling all tight after cleansing. As a matter of fact, it leaves my skin feeling all soft, smooth and clean. It cleanses very well and most importantly, it does not cause my skin any breakout as I do have a pretty sensitive skin.

So, here’s what I think of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil in a nutshell:

Pros:
1. Pump dispenser with locking system.
2. Smells nice.
3. Cleanse skin very well, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and clean.
4. Does not strip skin moisture.
5. Does not cause skin breakout, suitable for sensitive skin.

Cons:
1. Bit expensive.

I cannot be sure what was the retail price here in Brunei but I recalled it being around B$50 to B$65. It is definitely expensive to buy from Brunei unless you buy it during sales period at Hua Ho whereby all Elizabeth Arden products apart from offered ones will be retailed at 20% discount. I got mine from the aunt of my colleague and she gave me 20% discount all the time. Given the currency exchange nowadys, it is definitely a lot cheaper.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

Price: RM142 (East Malaysia), B$58 (Brunei)

Repurchase? Definitely!

  1. Hi Siaw Tan,

    Thanks for the amazing review on the cleansing oil, that was really informative for all potential buyers who are keen to try out this product.

    With that said, where in Malaysia can we get this? Or could we get this from your aunt too?

    Look forward to hear from you.

    1. Hi Ad,

      Thank you for the compliment.

      I think it is not hard to get hold of this product in Malaysia as Elizabeth Arden can easily be found at Parkson across Malaysia especially in the west as compared to the east.

      I bought mine from the aunt of my colleague and she resides in Kuching. If you are living in Kuching, I don’t see why not. But if you are living in another state, perhaps buying from the nearest Parkson would be more viable logistically.

      Is this your first time trying out cleansing oil?

      Looking forward to hear from you soon. =D
