[Review] SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil


Cleansing is an important part of my daily beauty routine. To achieve a healthy-looking skin, I always ensure my face is thoroughly cleanse every night. When it comes to makeup cleanser, I actually prefers cleansing oil than milk. I find that cleansing milk is milder and it doesn’t really clean off makeup as well as cleansing oil do.

SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil

I’ve recently obtained the SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil and after a few weeks of usage, I decided to review the product.

Product Profile

SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil contains a rich formula of Pitera and Apple Seed extract that deeply cleanses pores and effectively eliminates even the most stubborn makeup, mascara and sunscreen. This 2-in-1 cleanser and makeup remover leaves skin clear and radiant. Recommended for combination to oily skin types.


Based on the ingredient list, this Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil contains a high concentration of mineral oil. This clear odorless oil cannot become a solid and it doesn’t clog pores or cause acne. :D Though it’s somewhat greasy but it doesn’t suffocate my skin. Hence, this Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil is also suitable for combination to oily skin types too.

It also contains a rich formula of Pitera, the fifth ingredient on the list. I spotted Citric Acid in the list, the small amounts of this ingredient helps adjust the pH of the the product to prevent it from being too alkaline.

You can’t deny eyebrows are often the first thing we notice about a person. I believe good looking eyebrows are an important contribution to your overall beauty. Makeup artists consider well-groomed brows act to frame the eyes and highlight your best features.

Korea is often the epicenter of Asia beauty trends. Soft straight brows, a huge trend in Korea for a while, is dubbed the exclusive Korean makeup style ‘Ulzzang’ or 얼짱, the Korean word for ‘best face’ or ‘good-looking’.

CLIO, one of the popular mass market makeup brands in Korea, has recently introduced a collection of brow products – The Kill Brow Collection. I was pleased to receive a couple of the them recently. Award-winning actress and celebrity figure, Kong Hyo Jin (above image), is the spokesperson of the brand.

SkinCeuticals products that you find outside of these places are considered to be “diverted.”
