Review : Kanebo Impress Cleansing Oil Brightening Make Off

August 27, 2012

Kanebo strikes once again! This product clearly captivates my heart for its high quality products purely made for everyone to use for achieving high quality beauty and impact. I always love asian skin care, because it just works better on me, and I do believe it too! It's probably because I am asian so I find that their skincare works better for me. Japanese and Korean, that's it.

Same like Kanebo, their products are mostly gentle and moist. And japanese is widely known for wanting to achieve brighter and fairer skin. It used to be a common thought ages ago that, The brighter the skin, the richer she is. As only rich people don't have to do any labor and dont go outside often, that's why their skin is very very fair

Everyone want to achieve that bright skin!

And although it's also genes, but we can work to achieve a little brighter skin by using their products, right? It's not a sin to dream and work on it! ;)

Description :

Instantly blends with the skin and lifts makeup and inpurities out from the pores. Clearing them away with a single rinse. Clears away both makeup and the signs of dullness. Skin texture determines a beautiful impression. This is intensive rejuvenating skincare series designed to deliver Exquisite Suppleness with "The Impact of Exquisite Resilience."

Packaging :

Although it's a high end brand, the packaging is somewhat too plain as it's only from ordinary plastic pump bottle. I wish they would grave something on it, or make it more classy. But, for those of you who like simple packaging, especially for older / mature woman, I think it suits you best

Application :

I tried to do the exact thing as what Kanebo writes about how to use it, and here's what it says : 

Apply cleanser to the forehead, cheeks, and chin in this order. Move the fingers over these areas as though massaging to push dirt out from the center of the forehead toward the temples. Repeat process from the temples to the tip of chin via cheeks.

Move the fingers around the nostrils, up and down in short strokes. When the cleanser becomes clear and the fingers glide over the skin very smoothly, wipe it off or wash it away.

I only use one pump if I only wear BB cream, and 2 pumps if I wear foundation and thicker make up.

Texture & Scent :

This cleansing oil's texture is quite thick for me, that's why you only need a little for whole face. For me, 1 pump is enough! It glides very easily, and works really fast! I am amazed that it can go like that without making my skin feels greasy.

The scent is sooooo light so you won't really notice it, but it has a mixed of Aromaneige and Bulgarian white roses to create gentle scent

Result : 

It really cleanses my face very thoroughly and fast,  my face is really clean and fresh after using this cleansing oil. I also notice that my skin tone is improved slightly as it banishes the dullness and dirts on my face very well. It leaves my skin fresh and not greasy at all, I notice that my blackheads are reduced slightly since I've been using this cleansing oil o.o !!

The bottle consists of 200ml products and one pump is basically about 1ml. It can last for about 6 months if you wear it everyday so there's worth investment

Final Opinion :

Pros : 
  • A little goes a long way
  • Moisturizing
  • Cleanses very thoroughly
  • Has relaxing light scent
  • Improving skin tone
  • Removes impurities and dirt very fast

Cons :
  • A little bit pricey

I am not really sure how much they sell it in Indonesia, but you can go to Kanebo Counter to find out and even test it out by yourself! I am sure the staff will be more than happy to help you ^.^
But as I see, the price is about 25USD for a bottle. Worth of an investment if you really care about your skin, but I know that some of you will think it's a little bit pricey. So yeah, it depends again

But I do suggest you to get try it as it works great for me ^.^ Other cleansing oils are much much more pricier than this, can go up to 100USD #ifyouknowwhatImean

Or do you have any other great cleansing oil that you recommend? :D

  3. Yea I agree with Ribka. If it can last for abt 6months and using it everyday and works as wonderfully as you said it is, it def worth the prize. I would love to try it but I don't think they sell it in department stores here. Bummer.
