Re-review – New Formulation Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil


I was first introduced to Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil about 10 years ago and it was one of my favorite cleansing products at the time. And I’ve been faithfully using it for a couple of years before switching to different brand later. During the period, there have not been many cleansing oils in the market to choose from and it was quite new in the market too.

FANCL, a leading preservative-free beauty brand in Japan, is considered the first brand I’ve known that contains no potentially harmful preservatives and other additives.

And for that reason, most Fancl products are packed for a 30-day supply; so the product stays fresh to the last drop. To ensure further assurance, the products always carry the manufacturing date together with a freshness sticker and the FANCL Safety Standard (FSS) mark. It is attached to products that meet the standards for safety, trust and gentleness.

Recently, I have received an invitation to review Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil again though I have actually reviewed it before more than 2 years ago. Many thanks to The Sample Store for extending this invitation to me.

Do continue reading as there’s something interesting for you!

Makeup removal is now blissfully easy with FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil. This powerful formulation now comes enriched with Meadow Foam Oil which aids the removal of keratin plugs over time for a clearer, smoother complexion.



This new improved formulation Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil is enriched with Green Tea Catechin Oil, Rosehip Oil and Meadow Foam Oil.

* Pump twice or about 50-cent coin size amount onto clean palm.
* Smooth oil over face and gently massage into makeup and grime.

Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil, an effective yet gentle cleansing oil, became a hit when it was first launched in Singapore. It is free of preservatives, sterilizers, petroleum surfactants, fragrances and mineral oil.

I’m actually pleased to be able to review this new improved formulation Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil once again that is now enriched with a new ingredient Meadow Foam Oil. Meadow Foam seeds help to effectively dissolve keratin plugs and aid the removal of keratin plugs and impurities. It is claimed that prolonged and continuous usage will help reduce clogged pores to enhance the overall clarity of the complexion.

You will find a manufacturing date printed on the packaging box to help indicate its freshness lifespan. To retain its freshness, this preservative-free cleansing oil is recommended to finish within 120 days when it is opened. If it is unopened, the freshness period will be 1 year from manufacturing date.

There is also a freshness sticker to allow me to record the date the product was opened so that I can monitor its freshness level.

Unlike other cleansing oils, the texture of this Fancl cleansing oil is pretty watery and it’s not greasy actually. But amazingly this unique texture does begin to feel a little greasy when it is applied on the face. And that probably makes the makeup removing much easily and effortlessly. I actually need to make an effort to remove the stubborn makeup such as waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Fortunately it’s super gentle on my skin and lashes. This powerful innovative cleansing oil effectively removes all traces of makeup and dirt. Only 2 pumps or 50-cent coin size is required for the whole face.

Frankly, I’m a little obsessed with face cleanliness. If the face is not thoroughly clean, the skin nutrients absorption will be affected, clogged pores and skin dryness may surface and skin aging may accelerate. Hence I always ensure my face and lashes are thoroughly cleanse every night before proceeding my night regimen. And now with Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil, all these worries are unnecessary!

After cleansing, my face doesn’t feel any tightness and it feels super clean without leaving any trace of makeup and oily residue at all. This fragrance-, preservative- and mineral oil-FREE cleansing oil doesn’t cause any irritation to my sensitive skin and delicate eye areas.

    hello shirleen
    i have a big problem and i hope u can help me. i have acne and scars problem and i want to buy some whitening products. but becos of my limited funds, could u advise me to which to buy between clarin and lancome? u have post favourable views for both products (that is clarins whitening night cream and lancome spot eraser) thank u so much

  2. Shirleen says:

    Hi Susanwin,

    Although both are great products but the benefits are different. Clarins Whitening night cream is a night moisturizer that is used on the whole face and it provides an overall brightening effect whilst Lancome spot eraser which is highly concentrated, it is mainly used on targeted pigment spots.

    This may be a stupid question, but it it loosens keratin (which is in hair follicles) won’t it loosen hair too? I mean aren’t keratin plugs on the ends of hair & if this is emollient enough it can sink in deep. I don’t know, I could just be irrational.

Got something to say? Go for it!
