FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil (review)

Received Fancl Mild Cleansing oil a couple weeks ago for reviewing.

This offer came at the right timing as I was thinking about getting a new bottle.. I've planned to review all the cleansing oils that I've tried before(and I notice that I miss this out!)

Fancl products are all preservative-free, contain no potentially harmful preservatives and other additives, only potent beauty agents that actively work to enhance skin's natural beauty. So this products only last 120days after opening (unopened - 1 year from the manufacturing date).

Ingredients list...[Click to enlarge]

Suitable for all skin types....

Check out the step by step on how to use Fancl Mild Cleansing oil ->>here<<-
(This is the step they will show you when you purchase the cleansing oil at their outlet.

Below would be my thoughts on the cleansing oil and how I use it.
  •  the oil texture wasn't too thick or oily..
  • Colorless...
  • Easy to spread the oil all over the face
  • It emulsify when contact with water
  • The cleansing oil was pretty mild in removing stubborn waterproof mascara
(Just need to soak the oil on the lashes abit longer by pressing the fingers lighty over the lashes, massage (important step as I mention above:emulsion, as it will thicken the oil texture and lift the mascara wax off the lashes)
  • Removes thick base and waterproof liners/color makeup really well
  • Doesn't sting my eyes
  • Skin doesn't feel greasy or sticky after rinising off with water
  • Skin feel clean and it doesn't have the "moisturizing/smooth feel" after rinising off the oil.
(I believe the moisturizing factor wasn't that strong, which is good(I guess) cos it will suit all skintype... as it will not be too rich for oily skin)
  • Skin doesn't feel tight after rinising off the oil
  • I never experiences any skin irritation or breaking out during the course of using(now and before).
This cleansing oil doesn't contail Mineral oil, not too sure whether it's good or bad... cos I love cleansing oil contain mineral oil as it "guarantee" will cleanse off stubborn waterproof mascaras and it's also quite moisturizing and provide that "smooth" feel after rinising off with water. 

From the packaging, the instruction said that after applying the oil onto the dry face(with dry hands), massage to dissolve and lift up makeup and then rinse off with water. Since this can be emulsify, I prefer to do the extra step before rinising off with water to remove stubborn waterproof mascaras(like Majolica Majorca and Fasio.). 

Because, I tried it without "emulsify" and it doesn't cleanse waterproof mascara well! (Especially for Fasio, Majolica Majorca, Anna Sui Perfect mascaras.)

If you have dry skin, then you can do as what the instruction (rinse off after massaging the oil on the whole face.)

For combination to oily skin, the extra step of emulsion will dissolve hard to remove waterproof makeup easily and prevent clog pores.

Here a little demo... (Waterproof mascara, eyeliners(gel/liquid/pencil), lipsticks, lipgloss, cream shadow, browset and ects

Apply cleansing oil all over the skin and let it soak awhile then massage the oil to lift up the makeup.

Wet fingers with water and start massage the whole area...

Normally, when I use cleansing oil that will emulsify. I will start with dry hands and face (if hands/face are wet, I noticed that the cleansing power was decreased).
  • First I will take about 3 pumps of oil, and smooth it all over my face (avoid eye areas first)
  • let it soak for about 10secs then lightly massage the face.
  • took another 2 pumps (close my eyes) and lightly apply the oil on eye's areas and then cover my eyes with fingers/palm focusing on the lashes (this is to let the oil soak the lashes) and then lightly massages to lift up the mascara wax, eyeshadows, liner and mascara.
  • wet fingers and go back to massage the lashes(lightly) until you feel that the wax have all dissolved.
  • Wet fingers again and emusify the whole face.
  • Rinse off with water until skin doesn't feel oily before using your cleanser to clean the skin.

(somethings random...)

Peapea is curious about what I was doing in the middle of the living room(kekekee), when I first set the bowl of clean water on the ground, Peapea and buibui drink the water(so cute) and when I start to put my hand in the water and ects... they were curious why I'm playing with their "drinking water" (don't worry. they didn't drink the dirty water!)

Pop by Fancl store for some promotion...
