The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil

Honestly, by now, I doubt if I am the biggest, maybe not even a small supporter of Body Shop. Its just that Body Shop is a brand trees and plants are loudly screaming, a brand that I believe has been over and over drilled in our beauty thoughts. Natural ingredients and not tested on animals. I of course am all in for such core values, maybe that's why I keep returning to Body Shop. Actually, sometimes I think its basically a habit, each time I walk pass any of their outlets, I must pop by. Otherwise, I feel as though I am missing out on something, as if Body Shop is the only my beauty keeper. Old habits does die hard, isn't it? I believe so (Elderflower Eye GelVitamin C Energizing Face SpritzVitamin C Reviver Duo and Brow & Lash Gel), Body Shop products, mind you, is not cheap as well. Nevertheless, I still picked up this Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil (ShuUemura Cleaning Oil), I think thrown in with some discount.    

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. Made from Japanese Shiso oil, a popular herb commonly used in Japanese cuisine and 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, for controlling excessive melanin production in the deepest skin layers, even out skin tone and restore skin's natural radiance.
My beauty journey towards Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil started a month back, twice a day, morning and evening (how to use). Initially, lets say for the first one week, I so loved it. Then disaster struck. I broke up. Literally tiny lumps started popping up on my cheeks, thereafter spreading to my forehead. I knew that something is not right. Definitely, my skin generally does not break up, must be then this cleansing oil. So, I cut down by using it only in the evening. Indeed, the logical action reaction, soon and slowly lumps left my sensitive-combination skin. Thank god. Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil too didn't do a good job in removing my eye make-up, especially mascara and eye liner. Nope. Unfortunately. 
Will I buy Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Oil again? I doubt. What for? Except for basically cleansing my face, it didn't do anything else. Nothing. Quite a disappointment actually, then again, glad I am I gave it a go and instead of wasting by allowing it to sit on my bathroom shelf, I want to finish it off.  
Trend alongside "nava-k', possibly 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
