Hi everyone! OMG, I know I totally suck at keeping my blog up to date. But you know, things come at you, you have to deal with them, and once you're free, you can continue doing what you want in your spare time. It's always my reason: Exams & Assessment tasks. They've piled up and pounced at me suddenly in mid-May. I should say that I've missed my blog and I really miss blogging! *HUGS* to everyone! :)
Moving on, after my exams, I went shopping for 3 consecutive days. I know, it's crazy but its always my thing after pressure times, my stress reliever. So yesterday, I went to the Shu Uemura counter at David Jones Pitt St. Mall 'cause I was curious about their famous cleansing oil. I've used different types of drugstore makeup removers from brands such as Maybelline, Neutrogena, L'oreal, Garnier, Simple, Nivea, ZA, and more but haven't had the thought of spending $$$ for a department store brand makeup remover.
For me, makeup removers from the drugstores are affordable and does well for its purpose so I don't really think that it's necessary (for unemployed people like me) to purchase more expensive ones that has the same function especially when you use them constantly. It's not like lipsticks that can last long..... However, I got really interested with the Shu Uemura cleansing oil, when the sales associate demonstrated to me how it is used. He used a pencil eyeliner and drew a really dark circle on the back of my hand. He, then, pumped a small amount of oil to his palms, rubbed it, gently rubbed the makeup away from the back of my hands, and used water to wash it off. My hand felt so smooth, soft, and clean afterwards. It was so high quality-ish. Ok, I know it should feel the same when we use normal makeup removers but I really wanted it so I bought it! :) I bought the smaller size, though, just for the sake of trying. If it doesn't break me out, then I would love to repurchase and get the bigger size. In the contrary, if it doesn't do well for my skin, then I would be relieved that I didn't spend so much for something I couldn't use up.
I got the purple variation which is the Whitefficient that claims to clarify and brighten the skin. It was good for me because I have a combination skin type. I am hoping that it would work as a brightener to diminish the pigmentation of my acne marks other than removing my makeup. There's also other variations for other skin types which you can check here.

The sales associate instructed that you can just use this to clean your face and that using a face wash afterwards is not necessary but I still wash my face with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser after using this, just to make sure that I clean any "oil residue" left from the cleansing oil. Cetaphil should be gentle enough to not strip away your natural oils.
Thanks for reading and Have a nice day everyone! :)
