The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil

Honestly, by now, I doubt I am the biggest supporter, maybe not even a small supporter of Body Shop products. Its just that Body Shop is a brand even the trees and plants are loudly screaming about, only god know why and I have been falling for it. I tried a couple of their products (Elderflower Eye GelVitamin C Energizing Face SpritzVitamin C Reviver Duo and Brow & Lash Gel), not cheap you know, yet I think its just a force of habit I stop by at Body Shop outlets whenever I am at the mall. So far, so good with ShuUemura Cleaning Oil, nevertheless considering my savings which has been tumbling down like the share market, okay, I gave Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil a chance to win back my fallen behind confidence towards Body Shop.  

Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil
This rinse-off cleansing oil gently dissolves make-up, lifts away impurities without drying skin and is specially development for Asian skin. Over time, skin is claimed to appear moisturised, supple and fresh. It is made from:

Japanese Shiso oil, a popular herb commonly used in Japanese cuisine. It's rich in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acid, proven to fight pigmentation, prevent and minimize formation of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Vitamin C, a natural anti-oxidant to control excessive melanin production in the deepest skin layers, even out skin tone and restore skin's natural radiance.
Two weeks ago, I started by keeping this cleansing oil close to my skin (how to use). In the morning to prep my skin prior to applying the essential skin care and make up products, and in the evening after a pressured day at work for thorough cleansing. For the first few days, White Shiso Cleansing Oil loved my skin. Then, came the unexpected disaster. My skin broke up. It did slowly. Tiny lumps on my cheeks which travelled to my forehead, goodness gracious, I started hating this cleansing oil. How can? Tell me please. I couldn't understand whether it had to do with the formula or  my over sensitive-combination skin.  I'm not sure. 
Regardless, instead of giving a chance for this cleansing oil to permanently occupy a space on my bathroom shelve, I use it once a day in the morning. Sure, wise decision. Though my skin didn't lead me to become one of the finalists of Mrs Malaysia world beauty competition, my skin slowly bounced back to its original self.
So, I clearly concluded that this oil is too strong for my sensitive-combination skin, additionally it couldn't do a good job of totally removing my eye liner and mascara. Thank you Body Shop for wasting my time by giving false hope.     

Don't forget to trend alongside "beauty with nava-k" on every other social media please!

  1. I don't think this is for me as mascara us the most difficult to remove .. Such an honest review
    Have a nice day
    Keep in touch,

  2. Awesome review! Now to find a Body Shop near me that sells this :)

  3. I guess most mascaras are only easy to remove with an eye make-up remover. So far my cleansers aren't effective in cleaning off mascaras as well. Thanks goodness your skin went back to normal condition in just few days.

  4. I am sure this review will prove helpful to a lot of people looking at buying a face cleansing product...

  5. I adore this oil, it looks so handy to have :D
