I've always prefer to remove all of my make-up with a cleansing oil.
Firstly, because I am too lazy to remove my eye make-up with a separate remover and a cotton pad, then use a make-up remover wipe to remove my face make-up. Ahhh, too many things to do!! (yea.. i'm lazy like that)
Secondly, I feel that removing make-up with oil involves less tugging thus, less likely to cause premature wrinkles (too paranoid?).
I've gone through (must be close to) 20 tubes of the L'oreal De-maq expert Elixir Concentrate Ultra Make-up Remover (phew! that is a mouthful)
I like it a lot but I got sick of it.. :P I want to try new things!!
I've wanted the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil for quite sometime so I decided it's time to splurge. Got it from Watsons. This drugstore cleansing oil cost me RM99.90 for 200ml!!! So, it better be good..

I'm impressed with it the first time I used it. Turns out, I like the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil more than my L'oreal one!!
This smells like olive oil because that's what the main ingredient is. It is not offensive or anything. It's just that, I don't like it very much but what the heck.. It's just a cleanser. The scent doesn't matter as long as it works well right?
The oil is more runny than the L'oreal remover (which is more of a gel) but thicker than the ZA or the Biore cleansing oils, if you use those before. I don't like either of those.
I usually use 2 pumps of these. It feels so luxurious to massage this into my skin. Remember to massage into DRY skin with DRY hands! Then, I emulsify the oil with some water and continue massaging, then rinse off. There is no residue left and my skin felt so clean. It also takes off all my eye liner and mascara including the 'super-hard-to-remove' Majolica Majorca mascara. This is very gentle as it doesn't sting my eyes at all~
After that, I will double cleanse my skin with the MBD Strawberry Yogurt Cleanser.
The BEST thing for me is IT DOESN'T BREAK ME OUT!! The Biore and the ZA one breaks me out. With this DHC one, my skin behaves even better than when I'm using my L'oreal one. I've read that it's because it doesn't contain any mineral oil which might cause break-outs. This product is very natural. Fragrance, additive colour and paraben free (ooo.. i like that word).
In conclusion, I really like this cleansing oil and I will repurchase again and again until I get sick of it. If you are looking for a cleansing oil, I highly recommend this one. *2 thumbs up!*
I want to apoloqize for the blurry picture in this post and some of the past few posts. I'm having a hard time taking pictures with the 'lucky draw camera'. Almost every picture I take is blurry. Idk why!! I thought 10megapixel camera should be better than my 3.2megapixel Blackberry camera!! How can the quality be so bad? I don't understand at all.. *~*
Thank God I got a new phone with a much better camera now. Hope I can take better quality pictures for you all from now on. ^_^ Another Naruko post coming up next. Until the next post, stay awesome~
