Once upon a time, I loved Shu Uemura's cleaning oils until I realised that my outbreaks of big fat boil like spots where down to mineral oil and all of Shu's oils contained this irritating  ingredient. I found solace with DHC and FANCL mild oils that work great for me but sadly cannot be bought in UK and I have to have them sent in from Japan. Then, a few weeks ago, a lovely sales assistant in Liberty let me have a handful of the Ultime8 cleansing oil and I am in love with Shu Uemura all over again.

This melts every bit of stubborn makeup off with silky ease. Now despite the fact that I always follow cleansing oils with either a powder or traditional cleanser the Shu Uemura Ultime8 oils still manages to keep my skin hydrated and leaves it feeling comfortable and soft. 

The Ultime8 cleansing oil is fabulously fragrant blend of 8 botanical oils including, 
jojoba oil, safflower oil, shea butter oil, soy oil, olive oil, camelia seed oil, ginger, root oil and corn oil. No mineral oil!! 

Unfortunately for me, this is a very expensive oil at £36.00 for 150ml. A little goes a long way and it does such a good job so I will either spend my Liberty point on it or keep and eye out for it in the sales....With my fingers crossed.

  1. I have no theories but it's nice to hear them again after all these years. I think you should do a part two next month.

  2. Hmm, Shu Cleansing oil that is not petroleum-based. Not that I have an aversion to petroleum, I've used the A/O cleansing oil since it was issued. Thanks for the nice review!

  3. This sounds lovely...love the ingredients. Expensive indeed, haha. But, with sales and stuff like that, it can happen. And when a little goes a long way, you won't have to buy so much. Wonderful!! xx
