Review – FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil


FANCL’s Mild Cleansing Oil, for all skin types, is a preservative-free product that is gentle on the skin. To be truth, I feel so safe whenever I use this cleansing oil.

FANCL believes that when preservatives in skincare accumulate on skin, it may cause stress to the skin and may bring about harmful effects such as :

  • Reducing the effectiveness of beauty ingredients
  • Accelerating skin aging
  • Damaging skin cell DNA
  • Promoting the production of immature skin cells, lowering the skin’s natural protection

    Are you referring to the new facial washing powder light? Does it dry up your skin? I have tried the original facial washing powder, it does make my skin feel drier.

  2. Yen says:

    Beside this cleansing i think the new cleansing powder also seems not bad because its quite famous in Japan and being awarded as the best product by some magazines. Guess its worth to try out. =D
