For combination to oily skin conditions. A lightweight cleansing oil that leaves the skin clean, fresh and refined. Ideal for normal to oily skin types and acne-prone skin.
I had a phase where I was very much into Cleansing Oil. I tried out at least 5, but every time I tried Shu Uemura's fresh I got a rash the next day of my face. Perhaps it's the mineral oil, or maybe it's another product, but this just did not work on my very sensitive skin. While I don't use cleansing oil any longer, I found that Boscia Make Up Break Up Cool Cleansing Oil was a great alternative to this!
I've used the a/o and the fresh and I like the fresh better! The a/o I felt wasn't as effective in dissolving make-up and left a residue on my skin, but the fresh made my make-up disappear off my face after I washed it off! It's non greasy, has a pleasant smell and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. It's a bit pricey, but worth it!
I have tried the Whitefficient, A/O, Fresh and the classic Advanced formula. This one was the best out of all of them. Why? Because it doesn't contain mineral oil like the rest of the other formulas. This one ACTUALLY washed off unlike the other ones. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed some more and the Fresh formula was the only one that didn't leave a greasy filmy residue. It was also the only one that washed off completely and didn't leave a single trace. I really liked this formula. It didn't break me out. And in case you were wondering, I have combination skin, leaning on the drier side but I've also been pretty blessed with good skin. So I don't normally break out, but I can definitely see how this product "might" break you out. As for the other formulas? They will DEFINITELY make you break out!
Stick with this formula, it's the best out of the bunch, no matter what skin condition you might have. For the high price of these products, this one is the only one that's worth purchasing.
