Shu Uemura cleansing oil

I attended a talk by Caroline Hirons ( about a year ago at a Stylist event, where it became apparent that (shock horror!) I haven’t been cleansing my face properly!! Apparently, one is supposed to apply a cleansing balm or oil and then wash it off using a hot flannel…. Now, I don’t know about you but I hadn’t seen a flannel since childhood! Anyway, I thought I’d give it a go and I am now hooked on this routine. Try it!

This pic makes it look crap but Shu Uemura’s oil coats your face as you apply it and does lift off make up and dirt, with the help of the flannel. The plush smell reminds me of having a spa treatment, and because you only need a little oil each day, it lasts for ages. It doesn’t remove much of my eye make up though, so I’d recommend this purely for face cleaning and use a separate eye make up remover. I tend to favour the oil-based ones – I’ll update you on those soon as I have probably tried them all!

  1. Thanks for the tip Suzy, I tried this myself and it made my skin feel so much better than the usual, splash water on face & dry! 🙂


  2. Thank you, Suzy I never knew that about cleansing either and based on your reccomendation will definitely try it.
