Finishing a cleansing oil is a big deal for me since it takes nearly 10 months to go through it all. While Shu Uemura cleansing oils are initially expensive, they provide excellent results for makeup removal and the overall condition of your skin; also, they last a super long time so I find them worth the money. Personally, I stock up at the end of the year when there’s deals for the holidays. Usually with a coupon code during that time, Shu’s products are 25% off so I buy one 450 mL bottle and one 150 mL bottle every year. The smaller bottle is convenient for traveling or when I go visit my parents for a few weeks.
I recently finished my trusty pore purifying cleansing oil and I moved onto the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil. This is my favorite by far (and I’ve gone through every single cleansing oil available throughout the years). The Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil is the most expensive in the range and contains “precious essence of 8 exquisite botanical origin oils.” Combining beauty and health philosophies from Chinese medicine, beauty oils from all over the world have been merged together “to have the highest skincare efficacy for a petal-soft silky smooth sensation.”
All of Shu Uemura’s cleansing oils are superb. But what makes this one my favorite is the long-term benefits I see with this product. After cleansing, my skin is smooth and soft; my skin looks and feels healthy and even. And, it gets better and better the longer I use it. Even my pores seem clear, my brows and lashes feel conditioned and full, and even if my skin was irritated before, this oil soothes it. At the same time, this cleansing oil is super gentle and very rich — only 2-3 pumps is all I need and it feels very good on the skin. I’ve noticed if I use a different brand of cleansing oil to remove my makeup, my skin notices — my pores get clogged, my nose gets especially oily, and I swear my makeup doesn’t apply as smooth.
For me, I feel that the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil truly removes make-up and impurities effortlessly. My skin feels softened, conditioned, hydrated, and nourished all at the same time. I think my skin benefits from including this into my nightly ritual and I refuse to be without it! Read more about my Makeup Removal Process here.
