My review today is about FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil. Is it just another fancy-shmancy cleansing oil or something really worth buying? Let’s find out, shall we?
FANCL’s original Perfect Blend Oil in the NEW Mild Cleansing Oil dissolves and removes the most stubborn makeup, eye makeup, even pore-clogging dirt and oil instantly. It is formulated with the best balance of carefully-selected oil and cleansing ingredients, it won’t leave any residue. The unique Smooth Cushion Oil glides so effortlessly to wrap and remove any makeup and dirt without stripping natural oil from your skin, leaving your skin soft and moisturized. For all skin types. Free of preservatives, sterilizers, petroleum surfactants, fragrances, mineral oil. Manufacture date printed on the package.
The packaging varies depending on the quantity of the product you buy. If you buy the smaller bottle, it comes with an open and close lid and the liquid will flow out as you invert the bottle. If you buy the bigger bottle, it comes with a pump. Both work just as well for me. Also the date of manufacture is mentioned on the plastic outer packaging and not on the bottles. So if you lose or discard the outer packaging, you will not know when it was manufactured. The expiry date is 3 years if unopened/120 days once opened.
Price: The smaller bottle (60 mL) retails for ¥1058 while the bigger one (120 mL) retails for ¥1836.
My Thoughts On FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil:
This product was ranked #1 on Cosme for cleansers category in 2014. This product has a lot of fans here and abroad. Many people have been using it for years and swear by it. I actually bought it when I ran out of my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and wanted to try a new product. I definitely think this is the better option than even traditional biphasic or cream-based makeup removers. Let me explain why.
How to use: Apply a small amount in the palm of your hand and gently massage onto the face in a circular motion. Rinse clean with lukewarm water and follow with cleanser.
Consistency: It is more cloudy and translucent. It is slightly thinner in consistency than the DHC one and so spreads easier on the skin.
What it does: It dissolves all the makeup very quickly and leaves no residue behind once the skin is rinsed off. This is important because some cleansing oils may leave behind a heavy or oily or dry feeling after rinsing off. I get a fresh face feeling after just using this and rinsing it off. No dryness or oiliness at all. This is good for the super waterproof products (like the heavy duty Heroine Make mascara) and stubborn pigment/heavy makeup. Whatever it is, this can melt it and make it disappear.
Usage: The oil can be applied to wet or dry skin, though I prefer dry. I massage it on the eyelid to get to rid of the eye shadows and liner and mascara. Then I move on to the face. So after I am done removing all the makeup, I add a few drops of water and massage again. The smaller bottle took me 1.5 months to get through before I bought the bigger bottle.
After using this product, I use the Shiseido Perfect Whip to finish the cleansing process. Who will it suit best? This is suitable for all skin types, including oily and sensitive skin types.
Pros of FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil:
• Easy to dispense.
• Removes all stubborn makeup easily.
• Suits a variety of skin types.
