If you are looking for a high-quality and effective cleansing oil to remove all daily impurities the Shu Uemura Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil is the perfect investment. The reason I say investment is because the product is priced at £72 for a 45oml bottle, although you can buy the smaller 150ml bottle for £36 which is more reasonable.
I was lucky enough to receive this large bottle as a gift so I guess that's easy for me to say, but, I'm beginning to feel like I would save in order to splurge on this product once this bottle runs dry. Just 1-2 pumps of this oil will remove all face makeup so I would say this bottle would be really long-lasting.
Initially, I was worried about the oil making my normal to dry skin feel quite greasy but I have found the product to be an effective cleanser that leaves the skin feeling soft without a trace of the formula.
Usually I am more inclined to use a creamy cleanser but recently I have been reaching for this cleansing oil as a more luxurious way to take off my makeup before bed. As the formula contains 8 botanical oils including shea butter, jojoba and olive oil, it literally melts away with just a sweep of the oil on a cotton pad. Once you wash your face afterwards you will find that the oil emulsifies leaving skin feeling clean and super fresh.
This oil also removes mascara, eyeshadow and eye liner without making my (very) sensitive eyes water and sting which is a huge selling point for me!Plus, removing eye makeup has to be the bane of everyone's life-right?
I find this product to be most effective when used 2-3 times a week, especially when my skin is in need of a super thorough cleanse at the end of the week. There's something about this oil that seems to make my nightly cleansing routine seem much more relaxing and I definitely think that it's a luxury product worth it's price tag.
Have you tried the Shu Uemura Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil or anything else from their range? Would you pay the £72 for a cleansing oil?
