If like me you’re new to Japanese skincare, then I think this is something you’re going to love.
The Asian skincare market is for sure taking the lead in innovative and new products. I’m seeing more and more brands come through on Instagram and of course being a skincare lover, I couldn’t wait to trial it.
I was introduced to the Asian skincare trend by DHC, a leading cosmetics company in the Japanese skincare industry. DHC UK is a subsidiary brand of the original DHC Corportation and are known to be Japan’s number one skincare brand, which in my opinion is the best way to trial the market.
To be quite honest, I’ve never really thought about trialling skincare products from a whole other market. I’ve always stuck to what I know as that’s what I’ve felt comfortable doing. Picking out skincare products is a very personal thing as everyone’s skin is different and we all have our own preferences don’t we?
But after trialling out DHC I’m now questioning why I haven’t branched out into other industries sooner.
The DHC Deep Cleaning Oil* is one of their bestsellers and is now a must-have in my skincare routine. I fall in and out of love quickly with cleansing oils I must admit. After a few goes if I don’t like it, I push it to the back of my wardrobe. However, with this one, it has stayed at the front for sometime now.
What’s different about this one you might ask? Well, let me tell you.
DHC have enriched this formula with antioxidant rich Spanish olive oil, sounds a bit crazy right? But it really works.
The olive oil instantly dissolves all makeup, even waterproof, and leaves your skin cleansed, soft and hydrated within no time at all. I usually get in such a mess with cleansing face oils but with this one I don’t.
I dispense around 3 pumps in my fingertips before massaging it onto my skin and then rinse away with a warm flannel or cloth (they both work just as well). It also removes just the same with your hands to, but I feel a cloth gives a little exfoliation and really scrubs every single trace away. Once you add water to the formula, the oil transforms into a rich milky lather and feels incredible on the skin.
I don’t usually use oils for my eye makeup but this one works a treat and means I can remove my face makeup all at once. Works for me, as I hate faffing around taking my makeup off after a long day.
The difference with this oil and the others I’ve previously tried is that this one leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Some I’ve tried in the past have left me going to bed with a dry feeling on my skin and then the next morning, I wake up my dehydrated dull skin. Also, the magic about this cleansing oil is that it doesn’t leave behind any traces of oil or grease, so after using it you can go straight on with the rest of your skincare.
