There are so many cleansing oils in the market, but only a handful that are really good. Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil is one of them. It’s light weight, emulsifies well, cleanses well, does not strip, leaves the skin clean, soft and moist. I could understand why it was awarded the best cleansing oil for Allure Korea. If you’re ever looking for a cleansing oil, this should be top on your list to try.
The Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil comes in a 200ml pump bottle. The bottle is semi transparent so you could see exactly how much product is used. It’s nothing fancy, but sleek, sturdy and handy. I find I’m reaching this a lot more than my beloved Heimish All Clean Balm, simply because it’s so much easier to press the pump than using a spatula to dig out some balm oil from the tub.
It’s a light weight oil that flows very well. This is something I look for in a cleansing oil. As I have oily combination skin, I avoid anything that is too heavy.
I’m not too fond of the scent of this product. I think Skinfood is trying to make this smell like “black sugar”, but ended up being a strange smell. It is not heavily fragranced as some Korean products, but it took me a while to get used to the scent.
If you’re familiar with cleansing oils, the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil is the same drill. You apply the oil onto the face and massage to dissolve the make up. Then add some water to emulsify the oil into a white liquid, which could be rinsed off with water. The whole process takes less than 1 minute.
The Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil cleanses pretty well. It removes liquid eyeliner, mascara and lip tints without much effort. I do notice that it did not completely remove the lip tint I applied to my hand in this demo, but this is because the tint stains the skin much more than the lips.
After rinsing off, my skin feels cleansed and soft. It does not feel stripping or tight, which is something I cannot stand.
My pores are pretty clean while using this. There’s nothing to complain about.
The Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil is palm oil based, which is an inexpensive plant oil. Cosdna rated this to be 4 (pretty high) for causing acne, but my acne prone skin has been pretty happy with this.
The Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil retails for 16,000 Won, which equates to about $20 AUD. It’s on the pricier side for road brands, but still reasonable. A bottle would last me about 6 months with daily use.
Oil cleansing is the most effective and gentle way to remove make up. If you’re ever in the market looking for a cleansing oil to try, the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil would not disappoint.
