Review: Skin Food Black Sugar Cleansing Oil

 Description (from 
The mineral-rich Brazilian black sugar in the cleansing oil leaves your skin moist after washing and perfectly removes the dense make-up.

How to Apply (from 
Take a moderate amount of it on a dry hand and gently remove the make up. Then complete the cleansing by washing the face with cleansing foam. 

My Thoughts: 
I received this cleansing oil sample pack from hying of Korean Things, a site that sells a great variety of Korean beauty products online and they provide shipping to worldwide as well.
Back to the cleansing oil, this sample pack is enough for 3-4 uses on me.  I use it like any other cleansing oil, I apply and spread it evenly on my dry face, massage in, add a certain amount of water to emulsify it then rinse it off.
The first thing that I noticed when I first opened this sample pack was the scent, it has a citrus-y scent, something that I didn't expect. Don't get me wrong, I love citrus-y scent, but I never thought that black sugar will have this kind of scent or maybe it's just a synthetic fragrance.
I really like the texture, it has a thin and runny consistency so it's pretty easy to spread and massage in.
As for the cleansing power, for me it's pretty decent. It cleanses my face makeup pretty well but for waterproof mascara and eyeliner, it takes a bit more effort. But since I always use separate eye makeup remover, it doesn't really bother me.
After rinsing it off, I still feel that it leaves a little bit of residue on my skin so I still need to use a facial cleanser after using this cleansing oil which I don't mind since I always do double cleansing to make sure everything's off.
Sadly, I can't find the ingredient list for this cleansing oil on the sample pack nor on the official Skin Food site so I'm not sure what the ingredients are, of course beside the black sugar. Luckily though, it doesn't break me out :).
Overall, It's a good cleansing oil that's worth trying especially if you like citrus-y scent.

Here's the texture of the cleansing oil:
Before emulsifying.

After emulsifying.
- Pleasant citrus-y scent
- Cleanses face makeup pretty well
- Thin consistency for easy application
- No breakout

- a bit hard to remove waterproof eye makeup
- leave a little bit of residue

Rating: 3.5/5
Repurchase: Probably yes
(Since I love trying new products, I'll try other products before deciding to settle on this product :D)

A Piece of Me... in February 2011

A game hosted by Shirley of *We Love Toothfairy*

This month....
I like: CNY and red packets (ang pao)! And of course having tons of food as an excuse to indulge a little on CNY, but I always feel guilty later, oh well..

I don't like: spending too little time with my whole family and friends, the holiday is too short!

I want you to know: Happy CNY! I know it's a bit late but better be late than never :) Hope everyone's having a great time!

I've planned: a short vacation trip with my cousin! Hope everything will go smoothly.

I want to say to someone special: I need more time with you~

Here's the CNY reunion dinner that I have with my family on CNY's eve. I instantly gained weight right after the dinner! :( I'm still trying to lose it now... Anyways, here they are!

We were having hot pot!

Some of the ingredients for the hot pot

Fried Prawns

Stir-Fry Scallions

Meat Rolls (Ngo Hiang)

Till next time!
