Review: THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil

Thursday, November 26, 2015

I've wanted to try THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil for quite a while because I get many orders for it. In Japan, for the past 5 or more years, everyone used to say that cleansing oils are exactly what make your skin dry out as they take off all sebum. I have dry to combi skin and I hadn't used cleansing oils for years, and I found milk and cream cleansers are certainly gentle but some are too gentle and don't even remove makeup especially when you're wearing sunscreen with high spf or heavy foundation. So I was looking for a good cleansing oil or better cream one, and I purchased two products. One is my current favorite cleanser, Cosme Decorte AQ Meliority Cleansing Cream (review coming soon), and I use this THREE one 2 or 3 days a week.

All of skin care products from THREE are made in Japan and almost made with carefully selected natural ingredients. Balancing Cleansing Oil contains 88% naturally derived ingredients such as Jojoba oil, Tea seed oil, Argan oil, and Rosehip oil. It's also blended with some essential oils and the scent is... amazing. Doen't smell like it has a synthetic perfume at all, just pure oils' smells. It feels like you're at spa having an oil massage; removing makeup can never be more relaxing without this oil.

THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. Some THREE products I have used were packaged in a heavy frosted glass bottle and they feel more luxurious, but plastic bottles are still fine.

The oil itself is almost clear and it is very, very light that it can quickly run off your hands. Although THREE says to take 2 to 3 pumps onto dry palms, I like to pump 3 to 4 times so I don't feel any irritation. Gently massage the entire face with circular motions, it dissolves makeup, and it doesn't require to emulsify, just rinse off with water or lukewarm water. Then follow with cleansing foam, yes the double cleanse method is obvious.

After washing, my face feels extremely clean. It removes all trace of my full makeup fast while leaving the skin soft and mildly hydrated. Love it.

THREE has a cleansing milk as well for sensitive skin, but it didn't work for me with my full base makeup (sunscreen, primer, foundation and powder). May work for those who wear light makeup like only a tinted moisturizer or sunscreen.
