Why RMS Beauty Cream is different from your supermarket VCO

Ok, bear with me as I do another cleanser review because I want to do a top 5 cleanser so I want to get as many as possible out of the way. Also, cleansers are the kind of products that are gone quickly from my collection because they get used a lot.

The next one to review is the RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream.

First of all, it’s not a cream, at all! It’s like the virgin coconut oil that you get in the supermarket. Especially if you live in tropic country the coconut just melts into oil. No creaminess at all. I guess if you live in colder weather it will probably solidify a bit.

When it came in the package, it was all clear liquid and I throw it in to the fridge immediately.

If you want to know the benefit of raw coconut oil you can read it here. Other than that, let’s move on to the review. After the jump!

Another cleansing oil review but this time from Tata Harper

For someone who proclaim to not really like cleansing oil, you must be wondering why am I posting two cleansing oils post consecutively? I though I might as well get it out of the way so you all know that these are about the only cleansing oils that I’ve tried so far.

Other than Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil and DHC Deep Cleansing Oil that I’ve previously reviewed here, I’ve also tried cleansing oils from:

  • The Body Shop, affordable and great scent! Great for cleansing makeup but still DHC and Fancl excel at removing makeup IMO. But then again, it’s easy to find here in Indonesia.
  • Astalift, great at removing makeup, light texture but considering the price, not really memorable.
  • Tatcha, one of the best cleansing oils that I’ve tried! I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this. Now that it’s gone I don’t know whether I’ll be able to write a review. It’s light, expensive (so I wont use it to remove makeup), yet it’s great for removing makeup.

Anyway, this post is actually not about cleansing oil but more about my current favourite cleansing oil: Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser . When it comes to cleansing products, Ms. Harper surely knows how to create a lush cleansers! Each and every one cleansers that I’ve tried from this brand is really something else.

First of all, let me tell you that it’s not easy to find a cleansing oil that can emulsify from natural brand. But this cleansing oil emulsify easily. Tata Harper’s Nourishing Oil Cleanser feels really gentle on the skin and it’s filled with ingredients that are good for your skin such as beta carotene, vitamins A, C and E as well as lycopene and omega 3.

The Battle of the Cleansing Oils: DHC Vs. Fancl

I’m not a big fan of cleansing oil, so there are very little cleansing oil in the market that I’ve tried. The reason is because I find cleansing balm and cream much more comforting to use on my dry skin. But I must admit cleansing oil is the easiest to use to remove makeup, especially if you’re using waterproof eye makeup such as eyeliner and mascara that are fibre-based and made in Japan. God, they’re really hard to remove!

Anyway, eventhough cleansing oil melt away all makeup in one swipe, never forget to emulsify it first. If you haven’t already know how to use cleansing oil properly, read this article on all about cleansers (unfortunately written in Bahasa Indonesia).

From my recent trip to Japan, I picked up two renowned cleansing oil from brands that I’ve trusted. They are the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil.

Here’s what you need to know first about both cleansing oil: their ingredient list is pretty short (although I can’t really tell what’s inside Fancl since it’s in Japanese) and they’re free from mineral oil. I have no problem with cleansers that use mineral oil, but I know most people out there mind.

We’ll start with the famous DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.

HG Cleanser: Merumaya Cleansing Balm

Merumaya cleansing balm goes to the HG status quite easily. It tick all the right boxes of a good cleanser for me.

IMG_6466

This melting cleansing balm is packaged in a tub and the texture is more like gel balm instead of buttery balm. This is quite different from the texture of Clinique cleansing balm that I’m so used to for years. But the gel like texture actually gives a really nice slip when you massage it around the face without it melting into a complete oil. There’s still a slip and grip factor there even if you’ve been massaging it for ten minutes, completely unlike the traditional cleansing balm.
