Shu Uemura Brightening Cleansing Oil

Behold! Shu Uemura Brightening Cleansing Oil!

The power of Shu compels you! Or at least it compels me.

I want a cleansing oil that brightens my tired, dull skin! This brand new cleansing oil was developed to prepare skin for a radiant, translucent finish every time you use it! Holy cow I wants it now! Dullness and dark spots appear to vanish too! We all needs it now!

I've used whitening, brightening products before that haven't totally worked however I think I trust Shu enough to do the job!

I'll be definately adding this to my cart and reviewing soon! Click for further info on Shu's new brightening cleansing oil!

Want it?

Muse, do you know if this has mineral oil in it? Their other cleansing oil did and I try to stay away from that as I'm breakout prone.

But this does sound very intriguing!

Hope you had a good weekend!

hiya plue.

It's a bit expensive I agree. I never tried ZA what's it like?

hi taryn,

I'm going to take a guess and say yes. I have the same exact problem as you that I get itchy from Shu and I was blaming it on the "deepsea" water for a while. Weird I know but I ended up firguring out it was prob the mo!

I am tempted to purchase anyway. I really love the RMK which is minty fresh, never found one that smelled as nice, however it's bloody expensive.

Hope you did too! We need to chat soon! Plenty to tell you!

Much love!

Oh Izzy!

You know that a cleansing oil will likely not brighten. 'Brighten' is just another buzz-word we Asians like to stick on products, like 'JoyLuckVitality!' or 'Caution, Lead!". Just meaningless, empty words used to trick consumers. Short-term exposure won't do much for you.

You're better off investing in Nightingale droppings. I hear those actually work (and they're only 30% lead).

I also want to have as pale skin as possible, a radiant porcelain skin. I love Snow White... This sounds very interesting product!

Morning my little cherry blossom ;)

Of course I know that but I can't help but go into hyper Asian buying spree when I see "whitening" "brightening" it's all like a toothpaste commercial!

Tis why I love asians so much. They promise big things! =-)

Damn you you're killing my dreams that this was the ONE! That finally I had found the holy grail of whitening agents!

I must be whiter, paler, milkier!


naa I tried the dropping as per your recommendation and I've decided I shall visit china, seek out the dragon and see of his droppings offer me brightening abilities ;-)

You may fly on his back with me should I find him!

and together we'll feed him prunes...

Hmm, this is interesting considering I do have pigmentation I want to get rid of (cos I usually just cover it over with foundation, which is ok in winter, but a pain in summer!), but have no desire to lighten my skin shade in the slightest. Will have to see if its worth the money when you review. Looking forward to it!!!

Morning darling Isabella!

Nope. Can't find it anywhere. But I am still searching! Shall not give up hope!

I don't remember there's any fragrance or smell for ZA, but I'll check again later when i go home. :D

Let you know when I am done with it!

Blogger the Muse said...

hiya Dancinggal!

No pigmentation here but just general dullness. :P Guess it's the humid weather?!
I doubt it'll do any good at whitening in all honesty they always slap that on products and it does nothing but make the skin look glowy but we shall see ;)

hiya plue!

Interesting! I'm using Kanebo's cleansing oil atm which is great, but not much better than the Lumene one I used earlier.

July 17, 2008 at 3:34 AM  
Blogger the Muse said...

I wanted to try the Lumene one...does it smell nice?

I'm looking for one that smells nice!

July 17, 2008 at 3:28 PM  
Blogger Rocketqueen said...

The Lumene one doesn't smell too nice I'm afraid! A lot of people don't like the oil because of that I know... the Kanebo smells nice though!
