Review: Kose Sekkisei Treatment Cleansing Oil

Having written a fair bit on foods in the past weeks, it’s time for a skincare product review to balance all out. It was in my plan that I would be flying to Kuala Lumpur (KL) a long weekend next week but it turned out that I was unable to do so due to changes in events. I was rather bummed about it in the first place. But after having second thoughts, perhaps it just wasn’t meant to be?

Instead of flying out to KL, I would have to make a trip to Miri to sort out some stuffs. I am thinking of going on my own so that it would be easier for me to sort out my stuffs rather than having someone following me around. Aside from getting my stuffs sorted out, I am planning to restock on some Korean skincare products from too!

Anyways, before we roll out of the topic, let’s get started with what I intended to do for the day!

Kose Sekkisei Treatment Cleansing Oil

This cleansing oil from Kose is not one of the latest release of the said brand. I think it had been launched quite many years ago but I only gotten round to get it when I came back from Singapore in mid February this year. As usual, it is a habit for me to stock up on Kose Sekkisei Lotion whenever I am flying out from Singapore Changi Airport.

Kose Sekkisei Treatment Cleansing Oil happened to be on display one shelf below Kose Sekkisei Lotion. Price tag wasn’t steep in my opinion so I got myself one to try. The cleansing oil smelled identical to the others from Sekkisei range. If you love the fragrance of Kose Sekkisei range, you would love this cleansing oil as well. Consistency wise, it was thin in but performed well enough in removing sunscreen and dirt from the face. It emulsifies instantly when in contact with water.

When it comes to cleansing oils, it is habitual for me to wipe off the emulsified cleansing oil, following with a few splashes of lukewarm water on the face before performing double cleansing with my regular facial cleansers. I had been alternating in between COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser and Laneige Foam Cleanser Moisture_EX depending on my skin condition at the time. I don’t wear heavy makeup at all so I couldn’t vouch on the effectiveness with removing waterproof makeup but it definitely serves it’s purpose with light makeup or sunscreen only.

I have a sensitive combination skin type. Having used this cleansing oil for some time, I didn’t experience any skin breakout. However, I’m not sure if I could say the same for other sensitive skin users as our skin reacts differently to different products.

So, here’s what I think of Kose Sekkisei Treatment Cleansing Oil in a nutshell:

1. Affordable.
2. Smelled pleasant.
3. Doesn’t strip skin moisture.
4. Emulsifies well and removes sunscreen and dirt well enough.
5. Doesn’t break out on my skin.

None that I could think of.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
