FANCL's Mild Cleansing Oil has been ranked as the best oil-based, makeup-removing cleanser by @cosme for quite some time and after having the chance to try the remover myself, I have to say that it comes at no surprise. Simply apply one pump of the cleansing oil to your (dry) eye-lids, massage, rinse and watch your makeup melt away. As most of my eye-makeup is water proof, I have always had to rely on a wipe off remover in addition to an oil cleanser to wash my makeup away. But with FANCL's Cleasing Oil, my make-up removing routine no longer requires Lancôme's Bi Facil or YSL's Démaquillant Yeux's help. Just one step and I'm makeup-free.
Mild Cleansing Oil is thinner than most oil cleansers and does not leave a greasy residue or clog pores. It is gentle and does not sting nor leave the eyes dry. The remover is alcohol-free, fragrance-free and free of many other potentially-irritating ingredients. It is one of the best affordable makeup removers that I have ever used. However, it does cloud the eyes but since it does a much better job of removing makeup than DHC's Cleansing Oil and Bioré's Perfect Oil, I am willing to put up with a little temporary discomfort.
For a limited time, FANCL is selling Mild Cleansing Oil in blue bottles with a mermaid princess print designed by former Marie-Claire Germany art director and fashion illustrator, Irma (who also maintains a very fun blog, by the way). If you purchase a pack of two limited edition Cleansing Oils at local FANCL stores, you will receive a free mermaid badge/pin. One bottle of Mild Cleansing Oil costs 1785 yen (including tax).
