The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil

Remember I told you about ShuUemura Cleaning Oil and why if at all I switch to another brand, the price could be the obvious reason? Well, eventually I bought this Body Shop cleansing oil even though I have mixed reviews on their other products I have tried so far (Elderflower Eye GelVitamin C Energizing Face SpritzVitamin C Reviver Duo and Brow & Lash Gel). 

Now, lets get to know this 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.
I started off with this oil two weeks ago and twice a day (how to use), in the morning to prep skin before using the daily essential products and in the evening after work to thoroughly cleanse my face by removing the skin care and make-up products.  For the first few days, the oil settled well on my skin. Thereafter, tiny lumps started appearing on my cheeks. Of course I was concern but with the rush in packing for my travel venture, I didn't pay much attention and I still packed this oil with the rest of the skin care products.     
Unfortunately while I continued using this oil, it further triggered the bumps to grow bigger and by then, I knew something is not right. So, instead of using the oil twice a day, I cut down to once and that saved my face from the bumps. Within a couple of days, the bumps slowly started disappearing.
So, I clearly concluded that this oil is too strong for my sensitive-combination skin and it wasn't effective in removing my eye make-up especially for waterproof mascara. And upon later reading that this oil is for normal to dry skin and not for all skin types as stated on the packaging. I am going to say bye-bye to Body Shop Cleansing Oil once the oil is finished off.

  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
