If you’ve read my blog on Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream and Mizon Returning Starfish Cream, you know that I am in love with Mizon’s products and always amazed by their quality. And Mizon Real Soybean Deep Cleansing Oil and Mizon Rice Real Cleansing Foam did not disappoint!
While I was fairly satisfied with Skinfood’s Egg White Pore Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Foam, I wanted to try out another cleanser set to see how it compared. I got this set really cheap through the seller TOKTOK on Amazon, and paid only $16 for the oil and $8 for the cleanser. This is my first experience with cleansers from Mizon.
Like other cleansing oils, this one is also pretty liquid, but a little bit thicker. It comes in a pretty green bottle, but the liquid itself is clear. It smells a little fruity, and I’m sure that’s from the added fragrance and not the fruit extracts added to it.
Ingredients: Mineral oil, camellia oleifera seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, peg-8 isostearate, glycine soja (soybean) oil, isopropyl, palmitate, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil, limanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, vaccinum myrtillus fruit/leaf extract, saccharum officinarum (sugar cane)extract, acer saccharum (sugar maple) extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, citrus medica limonum (lemon) fruit extract, canca papaya (papaya) fruit extract, gypsophila paniculata root extract, hedera helix (ivy) extract, rubus idaeus (raspberry) fruit extract, portulaca oleracea extract, glycine soja (soybean) sproud extract, phaseolus radiatus seed extract, colix lacryma-jobi ma-yuen seed extract, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed extract, oryza sativa (rice) germ extract, hordeum distichon (barley) extract, polygopnum fagopyrum seed extract, fragrance
There are a lot of different oils mixed into this cleanser, which makes it moisturizing, but some of them are acne-triggers. According to cosdna, the worst culprits are glycine soja oil and isopropyl palmitate. But this is a cleanser and nothing is meant to stay on the skin, so it doesn’t really cause any problems. I’ve used this cleansing oil for a month and it didn’t break me out!
I apply a large amount to dry skin, and rub it into my skin for around a minute. Unfortunately, I do need to use this oil twice around the eyes if I’m wearing a lot of heavy eye makeup. The oil is super gentle and definitely does not make my face feel tight or stripped. As you can see, it gets a little white as you add water. It washes away really easily, leaving no residue. And my skin feels so clean and moisturized after using this. My only problem with this cleansing oil is that it doesn’t last very long! I pretty much used the entire bottle in a month.
A great cleansing oil! A little thicker than other ones, but it washes away cleanly without any residue. Great first step in the double-cleansing method.
Pros: Cleanses well, no residue, and leaves my skin feeling moist.
Cons: Not great at cleaning eye makeup, and not such a great value for the price.
Total score: 8/10
Ingredients: 8/10 (I like that Mizon includes several different types of oils and beneficial plant extracts. But I had to reduce a couple for some acne-triggering ingredients.)
Quality: 9/10 (Performed well: cleanses really well and washes away without any residue!)
Wear: 9/10 (I rub this onto a dry skin, and you can definitely feel it cleaning all the makeup and grime off your face!)
Price: 7/10 (I paid $16 – which wouldn’t be a bad price if the cleanser lasted more than a month! Unfortunately, I feel like I have to use a lot in order to really feel like my skin is getting clean.)
