Etude House Cleansing Dream Light Cleansing Oil

I am one of the users of oils to cleanse the face of make-up although those that I've used aren't the mainstream brands of cleansing oils like Shu Uemura or DHC.  The only other brand I've tried is the Fasio Cleansing Oil which they have since discontinued (why oh why?) and this:  

Etude House Cleansing Dream Light Cleansing Oil.

Ingredients: Contains Green Tea and is Mineral Oil free!

The plastic bottle contains 5.08 fl.oz. of a clear, lightly fragranced oil that cost Php 548 locally at Etude House branches.

See the cute bottle?  It has pictures of a girl and other dreamy stuff.  It's also flat at the back so it doesn't take up too much space on the counter.  It has a pump included which makes dispensing easy and mess-free.  I use around 2 pumps for my whole face.  

The one I got is in the Light variant which is for normal to oily skin.  The other variant is Moist which is for dry skinned gals.  The light fragrance I mentioned is typical for most of Etude House's products.  It is floral (I abhor floral scents) but not too strong so my allergies weren't triggered at all.

Like all other cleansing oils, they are applied on a dry face.  Massage until make-up is dissolved, apply a bit of water to emulsify then rinse.  The oil doesn't leave a film on the face and rinses clean but I still always follow-up with my regular facial cleanser.  I haven't broken out from use of this.  

It removed all traces of my make-up but I do not know if it works for waterproof ones because I do not use or have any waterproof items like mascara.

I will continue using this as it is readily available for a reasonable price and is comparable with high-end brands based on reviews from those who have used both.

Oh thanks so much for this! Came just in time, I was looking for a just-as-cheap alternative to my Softymo Cleansing Oil because I'm running out and can't wait for a preorder.

This post is very timely since I am currently looking for a good make up remover. Thanks for the idea, I will put this Etude cleansing oil in one of my choices. It's definitely cheaper than those high-end brands which might wreck a student's pocket =p

and oh, I have an award for you. Please check it out here:
