Comparison Review – DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil, Shu Uemura Balancing Cleansing Oil & Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil

.

This post was done quite some time ago but I didn’t get to publish it until today. My bad for taking so long! Last year, while I was doing my mini spring cleaning, I accidentally found out that I actually have 4 cleansing oils sitting or hiding out in different corner of my house and some of them were barely used. These 4 cleansing oils I’ve received in 2011 are DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil, Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil advanced formula and Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Oil. I decided to do a comparison review between these 4 cleansing oil and I will remove the same makeup products that comprise of highly-pigmented red lipstick, waterproof mascara, waterproof liquid eyeliner, foundation and pigmented eyeshadow colors.

I like all of them and it’s pretty hard to decide on which is better. All of them have their own plus points.

Oil consistency : Thin & light

Verdict :

After tested all four cleansing oils numerous times concurrently, I have to conclude that this DHC Cleansing Mild Touch Oil is my least favorite among the 4. It is because I do not like its oil consistency, it’s too watery for me. But all-in-all, it’s a pretty satisfactory product.

Oil consistency : Thin & silky

Verdict :

Ironically before doing this whole “makeup removing” trials, Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil was actually my most favorite cleansing oil among the 4. However after numerous makeup removing trials, I realized this Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil took me the longest time to dissolve and remove those stubborn makeup such as waterproof liquid eyeliner and pigmented red lipstick. Not only once, but many rounds of testing before I have to conclude that it is the least effective cleansing oil among the 4. I was actually shocked with the result. In addition, my skin feels less moisturizing and smooth as compared with the other 3. But I like its silky oil consistency though.
