grease up that face and wash it off!

OIL CLEANSERS! This is a rather new innovation over in North America, but over in Japan it is everywhere!

these are the ones that I own = (left to right) approx $5, $10, $20 Cdn. 

now for those who don't really know what oil cleansers are. It is like an eye make-up remover for the face! except it doesn't leave this greasy film afterwards! (well the good ones)

use a couple of pumps, be pretty generous and massage on your face and eye area very gently, you will feel the make-up coming off without a lot of aggressive rubbing.

then splash water and the oil cleanser will turn into a milk cleanser

after the water goes clear, your skin will feel supple, refreshed and spotless clean (even deep into your pores)

Now where to buy this in Vancouver??? First comes to mind of course is the SHU UEMURA oil cleansers, available at Holt Renfrew! I know other brands like Estee Lauder, Lancome, bobbi brown, Laura Mercier, Nars..... all have oil cleansers........but I've tried all of em and sorry to say but I think they can't top off SHU's oil cleansers, HANDS DOWN!!!!! (I mean it also depends on skin type...but at least shu has a selection to suit most skin types, whereas other brands only have one type of oil cleanser)

If you are a newb to oil cleansers I really recommend going to the Holts SHU UEMURA counter and get an associate to help ya pick out one that is perfect for your skin! good luck and lemme know the results!!!


  1. I've been using Shu Uemura and I've tried DHC too! Now I'm also using TISS which is like a drug store brand of Shiseido.

  2. Im using one that I recently bought from Asia too. But I've tried the Shiseido Asian version and they sell it at T&T for about $20. not bad either.

    also, Typo in paragraph two "soil cleansers"

  3. These are just brilliant and fabulous louboutin. They are most iconic and can provide you with a new feeling and enhance confidence. The quality of christian louboutin shoes is just superior to what you have dreamt of. Today owning a new and trendy looking christian louboutin are not only meant for the wealthy people.
