It’s hard to believe Shu Uemura‘s cleansing oils were introduced close to fifty years ago. I’ve only been a fan for about five years, but it’s a product I religiously replace when the bottle gets low. I don’t use it every night, simply because I like to switch things up, but it is my favorite cleanser. It just feels good going on, encouraging me to cleanse and nurture my skin, especially on those days when skin feels a little weathered from exposure, wind, or products. The scent is hard to describe but it’s clean and lovely. After rinsing, my skin feels clean, moisturized, balanced and pampered. I use the green bottle, Anti/Oxi Skin Refining, designed to combat dullness. It’s Shu Uemura’s number one cleansing oil.
You can’t buy Shu Uemura in stores in the U.S. anymore, but there are lots of options online. I just purchased my replacement from the Shu Uemura site before I run out.
