It’s been a hot minute since I did a beauty/skincare review on the blog, so I thought of doing a short review on one of my HG products – the Hada Labo Gokugyun Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover.

It was around the same time last year, while visiting Hong Kong, that I dabbled into the world of Oil Cleansers …and I am hooked! I’ve tried a bunch of oil and balm cleansers in the last one year, but the Hada Labo Oil Cleanser is by far my FAVOURITE

 

Now for those of you who have never used an oil cleanser before, you must be wondering what this is and how to use it. Don’t worry, I got you covered! 🙂 Cleansing oil is the 1st step to a double-cleanse routine and is a very important step in the Asian  (especially AB) skincare routine. All you do is take a few pumps of the cleansing oil into your dry palms and rub it gently all over your dry face and neck to break down skincare, makeup or any product buildup. Massage your skin for about a minute or two and then use a few drops of water in your palms and massage your skin again. You’ll notice that the oil turns white as it comes in contact with water – that’s the oil emulsifying 🙂 Then all you have to do is wash your face thoroughly with water and tadaaa! – Clean Face!  

 

Oil Cleansing is so wonderful because it really unclogs your pores – you see, oil attracts oil, so when you oil cleanse you pull out all the sebum and grime collected deep within your pores. Not just that, oil cleansers are also very gentle and effective at lifting off stubborn, water proof makeup and sunscreen. One of the reasons I love it so much 🙂

 

Now let’s jump into the review for the Hada Labo Gokugyun Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover. I ordered this online because the short ingredients list attracted me…also, it was quite reasonably priced for the amount of product you get…Win Win!

Hada Labo is a drugstore brand from Japan and it specialises in skincare basics. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from the brand so far, the Gokunjyun Cleansing Oil being my HG. Here’s a few details about this Cleansing Oil:

  • Skin pH balanced
  • Formulated with 4 Refined Beauty oils –  Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil to deeply clean your pores. It removes excessive oil and dirt effectively
  • Removes water proof and heavy make up easily
  • Gentle around the eyes. It doesn’t sting the eyes.
  • Free of alcohol, fragrances, colorant and mineral oil
  •  Intensely hydrates the skin, thanks to the Super Hyaluronic Acid. It helps to maintain the skin’s moisture balance
  • Does not leave behind a greasy feeling residue on the skin

The Hada Labo Gokugyun Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover comes in a sleek plastic bottle with a stopper for the pump so you can easily travel with it without having to worry about it leaking in your bag. I’ve carried this every time I’ve travelled in the last one year and it has never leaked.

 

The consistency of the oil is quite thin and runny (just how I like it), which makes it so easy to spread evenly across the face without having to tug at your skin. Even though the bottle is yellow in colour, the cleansing oil is transparent 🙂

I usually take 2-3 generous pumps of the Hada Labo Gokugyun Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover to cleanse my skin on days when I’m wearing makeup and i feel it does a FANTASTIC job at breaking down all of my makeup. It’s very gentle around the eyes and it’s the only oil/balm cleanser I’ve used so far that doesn’t sting my sensitive eyes…hooray!

 

I would recommend that if you’re wearing heavy, water -proof mascara, take an extra minute to work the oil gently into your lashes to break down the product. This oil cleanser emulsifies beautifully and leaves behind NO greasy/oily residue once I’ve rinsed my face with water.

 

I’ve noticed that my lashes feel very conditioned after I use this oil cleanser and also it’s helped with the acne and texture on my face. My skin feels smoother and hydrated every time I use this product. Also, there is NO scent or smell in this cleansing oil, so it’s a great one to try if you’re sensitive to fragrance in your skincare. Overall, I absolutely LOVE the Hada Labo Gokugyun Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover. It removes sunscreen and heavy-duty makeup so easily.  It feels like such a luxurious oil and is an absolute treat to use!

 

By the way, I ran out of this bottle this morning (sad times) and I will definitely be repurchasing this Cleansing
Oil. I can’t imagine my skincare routine without it 🙂
