Today review is on Neutrogena Deep Clean Make-Up Cleansing Oil (2-in-1 Refreshing Cleansing Oil). 

This cleansing oil can cleanly remove all my make ups in 1 step without making my skin oily after wash. My skin feel refreshing after use. Most importantly, it does not cause blemish to my troublesome combination skin.

  3. Then add a bit of lukewarm water until cleansing oil lathers. 
  4. Rinse off completely for a soft, clean feeling. 
This can also be use on wet face. 
My Review
Cleansing oil!!?? I specifically do not like to use cleansing oil on my face because of my troublesome acne skin last time. Although my skin now is no longer acne skin (combination skin), I am still scared. 

But seeing that it say it does not clog pores and I am often been told that only oil can remove oil and I should use cleansing oil followed by my face cleanser for better results. I decided to redeem 1 sample to try from Samplestore. 

It is a generous sample to me. A travel size 15ml cleansing oil.
Travel Size 15ml.
The cleansing oil has an oil texture that is transparent in color. It does have a light fragrance smell. Doesn't smell perfume to me but can't really tell what smell is it. A little fruity smell to me. 
Oil texture that is transparent in color.
I often only put on light makeup. So a little of this cleansing oil does removed my makeup cleanly without leaving any oily feeling on my face. The emulsification of the cleansing oil really did a great job. :)
Emulsify with water.
No outbreaks so far from using this cleansing oil. My skin feels not only clean but also supple without any greasy feeling. But of course I still use my face cleanser after this cleansing oil just to make sure. So far so good. :)

Then how about those waterproof makeup and other heavier makeups? Lets do some experiment.

Below show some of my makeup. From left to right: Lancôme Renergie CC Multi-Lift Instant Illuminating Color Corrector, The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff On Radiance, Loreal Color Riche Lipstick, The Body Shop eye brown pencil, Jill Lowe eye liner, Silkygirl Big Eye waterproof mascara, Lip Gross, Silkygirl blusher, Silkygirl eye shadow. 
Experiment with makeups.
After putting the cleansing oil over the makeup and do some massage and emulsify with water, can see that the makeup are all removed.

When wash off with water completely and dry, no makeup left. :D
All cleanly removed.
Overall this cleansing oil can cleanly remove all my make ups in 1 step without making my skin oily after wash. My skin feel refreshing after use. Most importantly, it does not cause blemish to my troublesome combination skin.

YUAN Wild Mugwort Soap (Sample Size)

My Review
Can't remember when I redeem this sample. But I do remember I redeem it coz the fact that it's handmade and the herbs used attracted my attention. 

The sample soap was pack in a plastic bag.

The soap bar itself consist of a very strong herbs smell. It smells a little like medical oil to me. Don't really like it. 

Wild Mugwort Soap is a solid soap bar with a mixture of light and dark brown color. 
How the sample soap bar looks like.
Lathering with foam is pretty easy with the help of water. 
Easy to lather with foam.
This Wild Mugwort Soap makes me feel that I am using those kind of olden days soap bar that our grandparents used. Especially so when the soap is this color and smell. 

After used, my skin feels really clean but I do feel that it is not moisturizing but a little too dry to my liking. I need to always use my own body lotion after shower so that my skin won't feel so dry. 

Although so, I do really notice small pimples appear less often now on my body.

Overall, this Wild Mugwort Soap looks like those olden days soap bar that our grandparents used. It smell like some kind of medical oil which I don't really like. My skin also feels a little dry rather than moisturized after used. Not particularly the kind of handmade soap I will buy.
