Shu Uemura's White Recovering EX+ Brightening Cleansing Oil is part of the Shu Uemura’s 2009 artist
collaboration series, the limited edition Tokyo Kamon Girls Cleansing Oils. This bottle was created by Moyoco Anno. I purchased it for the graphics and color. How could I resist the wide eyed imp on the bottle?
Plus, I have always wanted to cave on a Shu cleansing oil. I had been lollygagging for no good reason.
The ingredients range from Sakura Leaf and Prune extracts. These swiftly remove makeup and impurities to reveal smoother, brighter, more clarified skin. I will vouch that my face has undergone an improvement since my first use. It fixed my current dryness issue and helped kicked some blemishes to the curb. I do not look any brighter according to my critical eye. The fragrant scent is quite lovely. I can not pinpoint any note.
The oil's texture is fairly creamy to the touch. It is not heavy like cooking oil nor does it leave any slippery residue on the skin. It takes just 2 to 4 pumps of the oil and it is recommended to be smoothed over a dry face. Wet your face to emulsify the oil and then rinse with water. Then pat dry.
You can purchase this at http://www.shuuemura-usa.com/_us/_en/skincare/limited-edition-moyoco-anno-cleansing-oils.aspx for $75.
I have included the video for Sussudio by Phil Collins. This is the song I play in my head at the Shu counter. I replace the lyric "There is a girl that has been in my mind" with " There is a lash that has been on my mind."
There really has never been a question concerning my dorkiness.
Disclaimer(my first!): This product was a personal purchase.
Yes...I paid this much.
Yes...I am weak as water.
It is worth the price due to the incredible cuteness factor and the 15.2 oz size.
