Review ★ Holika Holika Soda Pore Cleansing Oil *LIGHT*

Hello friends!

I finally got around to buying more cosmetics and skincare products online, instead of solely the ones from Sephora. Hopefully everything will arrive before the end of July for a July haul post ^^~ I'm going to try making a post every 1-2 weeks to keep my blog active!

Today I will be reviewing this cleansing oil from Holika Holika! Cleansing oils have become a huge trend, but I think a lot of people are reluctant to try them out because of the word 'oil'. Most people try to remove traces of oil from their skin to avoid looking greasy or breaking out, but some oil is necessary to keep your skin healthy. Anyways! It's works in a similar fashion to waterproof makeup removers, but with skin care benefits. Most cleansing oils do a really great job at removing all traces of makeup, without clogging pores.

This one is the light cleansing oil, so it is supposed to be suitable for oily skin too. It also comes as the Soda Pore BB Deep Cleansing Oil, which is supposed to remove even the toughest of waterproof makeup and impurities. It does not contain mineral oil, so you don't have to worry about it irritating your skin or causing breakouts.

I'm going to start using the read more cut, so that it saves on space. The comment link is also relatively small and kind of blends in with everything else, so I think it would just be easier to use a cut.

(taken from & the bellogirl listing)
A mild oil cut cleanser that doesn't irritate dry or sensitive skin.

It contains the following ingredients:
(The full ingredient list can be found on here)

Grape seed oil: cleanses deep into pores. Essential fatty acid and vitamin E protects the skin from external stimuli, and softly and cleanly removes skin wastes.
Lemon & alpine herb: supply rich nutrients into the skin and brightens the skin tone.
Harrogate(?) sparkling water: supplies abundant minerals to the skin.

Pump an appropriate amount onto your hands, and massage it on your face. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

It did not come with any additional packaging, but the directions of usage are self-explanatory. I usually use about 1-2 pumps to remove most of my makeup. It feels quite thick and gel-like compared to other cleansing oils, which have a more runny consistency. The consistency of the product does not really bare a weighting on the quality on its effectivity, however I feel like less product would be used if it had a thinner consistency. As for the scent, it smells like soda, more specifically the original Ramune (Japanese soft drink with the marble in it). I'm definitely a fan of the scent~ like it smells ridiculously good!

In the photo I have the following products on my forearm: Innisfree Juicy Gloss pencil, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick, Elisha Coy Time Capsule BB cream, Dollywink pencil eyeliner, Benefit They're Real Push-up Liner (from the previous review), and Blinc mascara.

For the most part, it removes makeup really well. There's still some remnants of the Benefit eyeliner, however I stated in my review on it that it is really difficult to remove. I think the Soda Pore BB Deep Cleansing Oil would have probably removed it completely, since it's supposed to work really well on waterproof makeup. There isn't any stick residue left over once it's washed off, but I still recommend using a light cleanser after removing your makeup to make sure your face is clean. It's not completely necessary to do so though. Although it's just a cleansing oil, my skin feels soft and slightly smoother after washing everything off too!

Overall, I think it's a great product, and it isn't expensive. I haven't tried many cleansing oils, so I can't say that this is a holy grail product for me. However, I do like it more than the Shu Uemura cleansing oil that I reviewed awhile back (this one is like 1/6th of the price too). Also! If you're using it on your eyes, make sure you don't rub too hard because you don't want it getting in your eyes; it stings a little :c.
