How to get clear skin? I had been doing my bit of research when I came across this article that said to use more cleansing oils to achieve clear skin. Cleansing oils don’t strip your skin of moisture hence your skin produces less oil to compensate and this reduces breakouts. Therefore, I have been using oils instead of cleansing milk or makeup remover wipes recently. Luckily in Japan, using oils is the common method of removing makeup. Hence, there are heaps of oils in the market! Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil is a popular makeup removing oil here in Japan. It is easily available in drug stores and other Japanese and Asian websites. It costs $6 for a 230 ml bottle. It comes in a simple plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which dispenses just the right amount of product. The oil is pink in colour and is fragrance free.
It is a lightweight oil and doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oil. I don’t need a moisturiser after using this.
It leaves the skin clean without drying or tightening. It doesn’t leave any greasiness.
I apply it on my face and also on my eyes and then massage. It claims to work with both dry and wet face. But be sure to use with dry hands and face only if you want it to do its job well. It turns milky and emulsifies when it mixes with water. It even removes waterproof mascara. Although I use it to remove my eye makeup, it doesn’t irritate my eyes. A little product goes a long way. One squirt removes all makeup properly. I am sure it will last me a good 3-4 months.
I use it in the morning before washing my face too, as it is good to use a cleansing oil in the morning too, so that your face is moisturised all day long. It is cheaper than DHC but does the same quality of job.
I have sensitive and acne prone skin but this didn’t break me out, although it has mineral oil.
And honestly using oils has improved the quality of my skin. If you are facing breakouts or just problem skin, I really recommend you to try oils! But ensure that they are lightweight or else they might worsen problem skin!
