Empties - Boscia Makeup Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil Review

6:16 PM

Hi, halo!

I started this blog post with a little disappointment since I have wrote 4 paragraphs of it, put it on draft and it’s gone! I must put the draft on the Microsoft Word first to avoid this kind of loss in the future (sigh!).

Well then let’s start with this empties that changed my night cleansing routine! My night time routine used to be just bi phase eye and lip makeup remover + micellar water/face wash. Little did I know, I put more makeup along the way and a mere micellar or face wash is not enough, I got pimple as the result! I realized that it is not just about how you put a good makeup, but it also on how clean your face after removing it. And that, my fella, force me to seek another option, which is cleansing oil.

My journey on cleansing oil starts with Boscia Makeup Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil. I know, I know, the price point is a little high compared to Korean product. But here I just want to share my experience, as I have the opportunity to buy it in special price, lucky me!

Let’s see first the description on their website :

Melt away stubborn makeup and skin-clogging impurities with  MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil. Packed with anti-aging and hydrating skin nutrients like Green Tea and Rose Hip, this refreshing cleansing oil leaves skin feeling nourished and squeaky clean.
boscia’s signature double cleanse ensures a perfectly clean slate. It’s a two-step process that ensures all makeup and debris is removed for a complexion that's as clean as can be.

Step 1: Makeup Removal. 

Remove stubborn makeup and dirt buildup by deep-cleansing to dissolve all the grime on the skin’s surface with MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil. This oil-based cleanser really penetrates deep to dissolve any impurities. This nanotechnology blend of Rose Hip, Green Tea, Avocado and Olive Fruit Oil enables water to reduce the oil phase of this cleanser to micro-sized particles to rinse surface debris, and even waterproof makeup, away quickly and easily.

Step 2: Cleanse Skin. 

Using a water-based cleanser provides a deep-dive into pores and targets skin concerns, like
hydration or treating acne. By following with a water-based cleanser, you are fully removing any excess makeup, debris or impurities from the skin’s surface, allowing your serums and moisturizers to properly absorb into the skin.

On my dry skin, this product did the job properly to cleanse the makeup residues without over stripping skin. Careful though, for you who has fungal acne, based on SkinCarisma ingredients check there are some ingredients that might trigger it. As for me I have to rinse it thoroughly and continue with next step which is facial wash. There was one time I purposely did not use facial wash afterwards, to see if it will add moisture and I end up got a pimple (gosh!). So make sure you rinse it off, right. 

I was advised by my beautician, to massage your face when applying cleansing oil. You might want to see this video for step by step face massage! It works wonder and soothe your stress skin. Moreover if you do it religiously, it can lessen the appearance of puffy face and contours face as well.

As for blackheads that is caused by makeup/skin care that has potential to clog pores like sunscreen, try to massage more thoroughly on the area that you feel has more blackheads. For me, it is on the nose and chin. By doing this religiously each night, I felt that my blackheads decreased, but still, blackheads will reappear based on your lifestyle 🙈 

comes with safety pumps

The down side of this product is : it can't erase matte lipstick properly. It can erase my eyebrow product but I still prefer to use bi phase eye makeup first for eye area, then continue apply this product. It did not sting my eyes (P.S. : my eyes are really sensitive). 

Oil texture
It has a slight green color and smells earthy. The smell is still acceptable for me who sensitive to smell.

I tested on Heroine Make Eyeliner, Naked 2 eyeshadow, Focallure Foundation, and Dear Me Matte shade Dear Julie (which I haven't had time to review yet, review will up soon!). On second image, I rubbed lightly the oil and the eyeliner is the most difficult to clean. Meanwhile I personally think the Dear Me Matte shade Dear Julie that I own is a typical matte that is particularly easy to fade, hence the easy dissolve. The third image is final result after i add water and the oil is emulsify perfectly. Please note that I had to rub quite strong to remove the eyeliner which I will not advise to when you cleaning eye area. That is why I still prefer to use bi phase eye and lip makeup remover before applying this product. 

As for me it was a nice experience to use this product, a great starter and I will continue my journey to try another brand.
