Cleansing oils, cleansing oils, cleansing oils. With an unlimited amount of products available it is not easy finding one product you like. When it comes to double cleansing and cleansing oils, there’s a whole world out there. Last time I was looking for a new oil-cleanser, I ended up with the Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil.
As a light and refreshing apricot oil-based cleanser, it’s supposed to be effective in removing dead skin cells, while providing a brightening effect on the skin. Produced to be suitable for all skin types, Laneige have produced a light oil without the heaviness of conventional oil-based products. Although being free from mineral oils that can block our pores and so much more, Laneige might have yet another thing right.
While produced from both grapefruit and apricot kernel oil this is a Vitamin C rich cleanser, providing excellent results when it comes to removing old skin cells while easing redness. Not only this, but grapefruits deliver strong antimicrobial and antiseptic properties to defeat bacterial breeding as well as regulating the sebum production levels. Declaring that, this is a cleanser that can provide smooth, bright skin after rinsing off. I had super high hopes when I bought it.
As mentioned, containing both grapefruit and apricot kernel oil makes this cleanser rich in vitamin C. Honestly, I do feel like this leaves my skin brighter, and more even when it comes to the skin tone. It does leave this amazing glow as well and let’s not forget the fact that it’s super easy to wash off. This might be because it contains natural cleansing agents from gypsophila paniculata root extract, a mild but effective plant that removes impurities. Another thing actually that this cleanser is ophthalmologically tested, so it’s super gentle to the eyes and doesn’t leave that greasy residue when removing eye makeup.
This is actually a great cleanser for those who dislike heavy textures when it comes to oil cleansers, compared to my last cleanser from Skin Food (read about it here) this isn’t as thick and heavy as that one. It also comes in another option, that Sigrun has tried so she might post a review about it maybe?
When it comes to how you are supposed to use it, its honestly like all other cleansers. Pump out three pumps, I do feel like two is enough for me(!) and massaged onto the dry face for thirty seconds. Then wet your hands with lukewarm water, and massage for another thirty seconds. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Pretty easy, right?
So, as you can see below, it has a pretty oily consistency, but it’s an oil, so that’s not strange. As you massage it onto the skin, it’s pretty thick. This might be one of the things I so love about this cleanser, it removes everything. Although it’s thick, it isn’t heavy! And when you add the water, it gets milky and a bit foamy. It honestly removes everything! Now, my stupid brain didn’t even think about applying some product to my hand before taking the pictures but trust me. It’s amazing.
