YuMei Nano Whitening Deep Cleansing Oil Says ---

  • Based on main ingredient of Camellia Oil with excellent skin affinity, this cleansing oil clearly wipes out effete matters and make up remains deep in your skin without irritation

  • Makes your skin soft with treatment effect as well as cleansing effect.
  • No irritation on skin.
  • Keeps your skin healthy and moist after cleansing and sufficient water-retention effect

Askmewhats Says ---

Pros
  • imagine water that does the "oil" cleansing
  • very light to the skin
  • easy to emulsify
  • removes eye make up without stinging the eye
  • easy to wash off
  • I didn't break out using this
  • packaging is simple yet it works, I actually like this pump better than Shu

Cons

  • not available in the Philippines
  • there's a very tiny hint of scent which I can't explain but bearable

Overall


I was sales talked by the sales lady at the Bonjour Shop HK when I was looking for my Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. She told me that this product is also made in Japan and has a milder formulation compared to Shu Uemura. After 10 minutes of sales talk, I gave in because of it's price, yes, almost half the price of Shu Uemura and I kinda told her I'll be going back to her and return the product if it doesn't work! (of course I won't go through buying RT airfare to return this but I just want to check out her faith on the product she's selling) lol

Anyways, I would say, this product didn't fail me. I find it works just like Shu, but the oil is not as potent as the Shu Uemura. It felt lighter on my skin but the effect is the same. It doesn't sting on the eye area.

Tips

  • be careful not to wet your hands or face before use
  • pump out proper amount of oil on your palm, apply it over your face and massage using your fingertips.
  • If you have waterproof mascara on or very dark make-up on where you like to clean it well, use a cotton to wipe the area thoroughly
  • Massage your face in outward motion with lukewarm water until the product emulsifies
  • Wash your face with warm water making sure to clean all areas.
  • If you experience spots, swellings, irritation , STOP using the product
  • Store this product in cool dry place.
Will I repurchase?

Yes, but not online, shipping is too expensive! I will probably wait for friends who'll be going to HK and ask them to help me purchase :D

Where did I purchase and how much?

  4. Bittenbefore, my colleague, who's got super oily skin is using this as well and she told me it works!!! Just the same as Shu but lighter formulation. So I guess if you can find it there, I believe they sell this in smaller size as well so you can give it a try :D

    Aileen, I have checked, and I find that they don't sell it at Sasa.com. I'm not sure though if your japan stores would sell it there :) If I find any info, I'll let you know :)

    Prettybeautiful, you know what? You know me too well, I am into packaging, and this is like the simplest packaging ever! I almost "not" buy this but it was the last day of my HK trip and I can't find my Shu's A/O cleansing oil. And I was thinking "What the heck? It's half the price, I may as well give it a try". So anyways, it does sound dubious especially because they don't have a website! It sounded Chinese right? lol But I was told by the sales lady it's MADE IN JAPAN as well, probably lower end Japanese brand. Who knows. And you know what I did? I still have my Shu, I stopped using Shu, uses this first, just in case this breaks out my skin, I always have SHU to help me out at the end! LOL
