I don’t know why, perhaps because I’m often feeling too tired by the end of the day these days, I prefer to use cleansing oil these days rather than have extra steps for cleansing eye makeup as usual. And I stupidly forgot to pack cleansing oil when I went to Tokyo last year, hence the reason why I purchase the Bioré Make Up Remover straightaway when I first landed in Tokyo, and I also got this sample size of Senka All Clear Oil when I purchased the Senka Perfect Whip Collagen-in that I reviewed several days ago.
Well, what do I think about them? Are they good enough? Well, let’s jump right in!
I personally think that my skin condition could accept more different range of products rather the days when I suffered from dehydrated skin. I was so freaking sensitive to cleansing oil back on 2014~2015, and I remember that the only cleansing oil that didn’t break me out is only Banila Co Clean It Zero Purity. Even the famous DHC Cleansing Oil that cost more than this Senka and Bioré Cleansing Oil used to break me out. Well, fast forward to 2018~2019, Thank God, I’ve reached a point where I know that my skin is stable enough to try a lot of new products and I know how to handle it once a product makes my skin break out.
And spoiler, spoiler, both of these products work really well for my skin!
- Bioré Make Up Remover
When I spotted this product on Famima, I noticed that this is a relatively new product, because I always use Bioré Cleansing Oil to remove my sponge and brush product. And within first try I was pretty impressed because this cleansing oil remove all of my makeup seamlessly and I really like the thick texture that melts right away into the skin. Therefore, it won’t tug the skin. Furthermore, the cleansing oil will be emulsified really well with water. I hate non-emulsified cleansing oil, God forbid, and while it’s certainly not one of them, surprise, surprise, it didn’t break my skin out, at all!
2. Senka All Clear Oil
It has a very similar texture and sensation with Bioré Cleansing Oil. Thick, clearless gel, with no scent whatsoever. It’s also removed makeup really well and really easy to be emulsified. I also really like the tiny bottle, though, I would probably save it for the days if I go travelling/have business trips, lol. However, I noticed that if I use it together with the Senka Perfect Whip, it would dried out my skin. Therefore, I personally think that people with massive dry and sensitive skin, especially dehydrated skin, should stay out from this combination.
Well, in general, I really like both of these cleansing oil, and there’s a high chance that I would repurchase it since they are relatively affordable. If you have normal skin, I would highly recommend both these Senka All Clear Oil and Bioré Make Up Remover. However, if you have sensitized skin, I think it would be better for you to use Banila Co Clean It Zero Purity.
So, have you tried both of these cleansing oil before? What do you think? Please do share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉
