【Feelings after using】

Cleansing oil that removes dirt very well.
The rouge painted quite flashy was fallen off easily.

Also removes not only makeup but also pollen, dust, and very fine dirt.

I felt that not only the dark stains on the pores were removed, but also that the pores were tightened after washing my face.

And the skin after cleansing is smooth! It can also be recommended for face washing in the morning.

Also, penetrate of the face lotion after using this item is completely different.
I thought, “Did I use the booster liquid?”. My skin absorbed face lotion so much!

The feel is also very soft and the cleansing oil reaches the depths of the pores, and feels good.

Washing with hot water and this light cleansing oil makes the emulsification quick and refreshing.

Although it does not have the stickiness that is common in oil cleansing, it is very good that the skin finishes with a moist and does not dry.

The fragrance is not so strong, and the gently spreading fragrance makes you very relaxing.

The base note is blended with cypress and oregano to create a refreshing scent that feels as if you are in nature.

Pink bottles are also very cute and you can be happy just by looking at them!
