Aqua Moist Moisture Cleansing Oil


This is ONE cleansing oil that was hard to track down.. I got this at BHG Wisma SASA. (I can't find it at BHG Clementi nor any Watsons outlets!!). The very first bottle I got was at CozyCot Event at the Aqua Moist booth.(At that time they was having 30% discount)
Retail Price: SD$19.90 (150ml)

Ingredients list:::
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Mineral Oil, PEG-12 Laurate, Polysorbate 85, Polyglycerol-2 Oleate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Peg-6 Sorbitan Oleate, Water, Octyldodecanol, Fragrance, BHT, Glycerin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tocopherol, Sodium Hyaluronate.

The texture of the cleansing oil was thin and easy to spread around the face. Kinda remind me of Fancl mild cleansing oil. Doesn't feel thick nor sticky.

With just 2 drops of water, the oil emulsify into a milky texture.

  • The emollient power was pretty good!
  • Skin feel smooth and soft after rinishing off with water.
  •  Skin doesn't feel tight nor dry (quite moisturizing)
  •  It remove waterproof mascara and color makeup really well
    (including Majolica Majorca and Fasio waterproof mascara)
  • Doesn't cause any irritation nor breaking out (on my face)
  • Doesn't burn or sting my eyes
I normally warm up the 2 to 3 pumps of cleansing oil on my dry palm before applying onto my face... slowing massage to remove all trace of foundation. Then pump another 2 pump of cleansing oil (close my eyes) and start to remove eye makeup including mascara.

If you have dry skin, you can straight away rinse off the oil without the emulsion step.
For combination skin.. epecially for those who have clogged pores (or pores that will clogged easily).. emulsion is an important step! Wet your fingers and lighty massage the whole face before rinsing off with water. Rinse until the skin doesn't feel oily anymore then follow with your normal facial cleanser.(This is to prevent oil from clogging pores.)

(Note: To prevent clogged pores... remember to exfoliate your skin daily with mild exfoliate lotion(cleansing water). Scrub can't not be use daily cos it was pretty harsh for the skin(especially acne prone and sensitive skin). You can try Kose cleansing lotion, SANA Peeling water and ects...)

I swatched afew stuff on the back of my hand:::
Paintpot, Za liquid liner(and you will see how strong the waterproof power of this liner), lipstick, shu uemura lash glue and ects...

This is just a pump of oil.. and lightly massage over the swatches (Didn't use alot.. cos I didn't want the oil to drip onto my kitchen floor... peapea, buibui and manman will lick it... especially Manman.. she eat EVERYTHING!!!!)

Them.. wet my finger and emulsify the oil... See how waterproof the Za liquid liner was!!! (After I took this pic.. I use a kitchen towel to dry the back of my hand and add on cleansing oil to soak the liquid liner swatch, massage and then add water to emulsify the oil before rinse it off under the tap.)

[[[ Note: These extra steps of applying cleansing oil ... becos I wanna take pics(no one was around to help me) and I dont want the oil to drip onto the floor making a mess(abit messy for me also.. since I still need to hold my camera and I only got 2 hands..) ^,~]]]

This cleansing oil doesn't remove Shu uemura lash glue well... I can see the glue residue and it still feel abit sticky!

I only notice that when my sister told me that her eyes still feel sticky after she remove her faux lashes with this cleansing oil. So I soak up a cotton square with cleansing water and lightly wipe around her eye's areas. Cleansing water remove lash glue residue better then cleansing oil.

That's all for now ^,~

Alot of peoples have been asking me to review some of the cleansing oils that I've bought before (I know, I always forgot to blog about it.. I will slowly add in the reviews soon.. next would be Kracie Navia cleansing oil, Fancl Cleansing oil, Hada Labo NEW cleansing oil, Shu uemura cleansing oil, Dove foam cleansing oil and so on.. I've tried alot - I'm a huge fan of cleansing oil! Kekekeke)
