Review: Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil

I will be away this weekend for a birthday getaway in Singapore. I had only decided on going in late August when Sister confirmed with me that she would be back from London by then. Now that Sister had moved to Singapore for good, I foresee myself traveling to Singapore for vacation quite often. This would be my fourth visit to Singapore in 2017.

We went Singapore as a family during Chinese New Year earlier this year and returned again with Sister in the following month for a so-called business trip. Sister invited me on a sponsored trip to Singapore two months ago as part of her familiarization trip whereby we went property and furniture hunting to help her settle down before she moves for good.

Anyways, let’s not get sidetracked with what I intended to blog for today. I will be reviewing a makeup removing product from Laneige. I won’t be reviewing it as a full size product but trial sample. I got this complimentary when I purchased Laneige Clear C Peeling Serum and Laneige Vitamin Brightening Cleansing Water couple of months ago.

As mentioned in my previous few blog entries, I attended the wedding of a close friend last weekend. My colleague suggested I go for makeup and hairdo for the wedding and I agreed. So, I attended the wedding with a fully made up face. It was my time having so much makeup on my face and I was feeling rather uneasy most of the time. While I was packing my overnight bag for the trip, I intended to bring with me Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It suddenly occurred to me that cleansing water may not be that efficient on a heavily made up face.

Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil

So, I packed two packets of Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil into my vanity kit. It was a first having fake eyelashes and I had no knowledge or whatnot of how to remove fake eyelashes. So, I asked Jia how she usually does it. She taught me to use eye and lip makeup remover which I had none at the time but regular cleansing oil.

Each sample pack housed 10ml worth of cleansing oil which I think could last about two regular usages. The consistency of the cleansing oil was light and it smelled pleasant of citrus. I poured half of the cleansing oil onto my palm and gently massage them on my face in circular motion. I started with dissolving my eye makeup by gently rubbing the eye area for about 10 seconds to dissolve the glue of the fake eyelashes. It was a brisk removing the fake eyelashes!

After the fake eyelashes had been removed, I took another 30 seconds to gently massage the face to further dissolve the foundations and eye makeup. Take a little bit of lukewarm water to emulsify the cleansing oil before wiping them off with a piece of cotton pad. The previous step was completely optional as it was part of my double cleansing routine. My cleansing routine would then follow by a facial cleanser and I was using fresh Soy Face Cleanser at the time.

I liked that this cleansing oil removes my makeup so easily and it didn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or tight. Best of all, it felt and looked clean. It was uncomfortable having so much makeup on (especially the fake eyelashes) and it definitely felt good and luxurious while I was removing them off from my face.

So, here’s what I think of Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil in a nutshell:

1. It smelled pleasant of citrus.
2. Removes eye makeup well enough.
3. Didn’t strip skin moisture.
4. No breakout.

None that I could think of.
