Would You Wash Your Face With Oil?HOME
If you're like me, you've never used a cleansing oil. It's not that I dislike them for any reason (in fact I've come to quite like a certain cleansing oil - but more below); I've just always had foaming cleansers at home, and so I've always used them. Simple as that.
So when I found shu uemura's Whitefficient Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil inside my first Bellabox this June, I was all "what do I do with this?" Here in the interests of public service I present to you, my fellow uninitiated ones, a simple diagram describing the correct way to use your new cleansing oil:
Please don't be like me - apply this cleansing oil with dry hands, on a dry face. (Yes, I did it wrong the first time, and yes, my ignorance is embarrassing. Let's move on.) It's made with prune extract, sakura leaf extract and vitamin C for clearer, more radiant skin, won't clog pores or cause breakouts, and won't dry skin out. Once you've wrapped your head around the concept of rubbing an oil on your face, and got used to not immediately getting your hands or face wet in the shower, I'm pretty sure you'll love this product.
I know I did - my face felt softer and smoother immediately after use (well, after I'd used the oil correctly, that is). I've been using it for about a week now, and while I can't definitively speak for its whitening benefits yet, I do think my complexion seems considerably brighter. That, and having people comment that I need to go easy on the foundation, even when I'm not wearing any? Simply priceless.
