Review Kracie Cleansing Oil

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ Cleansing oil has been part of my routine for as long as I can remember. I think it was around 3 years ago, give or take. Nowadays, people are easing into using cleansing oils as part of their skincare routine, making me wonder as to why there are still a few number of cleansing oils in our drugstores and/or supermarkets. 

Kracie is one of the Japanese brands that arrived in our drugstore for quite some time. However, the cleansing oil wasn't there first time alongside their sheet face masks. So, now that they're here, I'm trying it out!

I bought mine at Guardian for around Rp 104,000-ish and went home with a blue bottle of Kracie cleansing oil. It has a pump as a mean of dispensing the product, so the measurement will always be the same each time I use it.

Here are the list of ingredients, just in case there are any ingredient that you're sensitive to. Mineral oil has always been a hit or miss for me, depending on the function of the product. So far, it hasn't caused any break outs on me, thankfully. There isn't any fragrance and colorants, so it's safe for people with sensitive skin.

Pay no attention to my chubby hands as they're purpose is to show you the consistency of this cleansing oil. Clear or transparent, this cleansing oil can easily be mistaken for cooking oil because it has the exact consistency as one. So, keep this away from the kitchen at all times.

As for the cleansing power, I can assure you that it takes off makeup in a jiffy, without any difficulties. All I did was spread two pumps of cleansing oil on my dry face and massage it lightly. It removes nearly all of my makeup such as foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc. 

After around 30 seconds, I wet my hands to continue massaging and cleansing my face. Notice the water turning white? No, it's not mould or milk, lol. That's the emulsification process when the product gets in contact with water. 

Oh, I forgot to show you the result of the makeup cleansing powder, didn't I? Well, here are my very thick makeup for the purpose of the test. Kracie cleansing oil took it off easily, no questions asked! My skin gets easily red if it's massaged, hence the 'red-looking-lobster' on the right, lol. :) 

So, to sum up, I really like that :
♥ it is available in most drugstores
♥ it is suitable for sensitive skin because there are no fragrance and colorants
♥ it removes makeup easily
♥ it doesn't leave a greasy film residue after I rinsed it with water
♥ it doesn't leave my face dry afterwards

However, it would be better if:
- the mineral oil is omitted for other similar ingredient
- it doesn't sting my eyes.

Have you tried this affordable makeup remover? I bought mine in Guardian, FYI. Let me know if you've tried it in the comments below. Until then, I'll see you later~

  1. Sama cleansing oil dari biore bagusan mana ci? :D

    1. Aku blm pernah nyobain Biore punya, tapi kalo sejauh ini sih pengalamanku pake Biore jerawatan, hahaha..

  2. Dibandingin sama kose speedy cleansing oil bagus mana ce? :D kayaknya mirip mirip ya?

    1. Kose blm pernah nyobain, tapi harusnya sih mirip ya. Paling beda di bahan aja, enaknya ini ga ada pewarna dan parfum, jadi pas buat kulit sensitif. ^_^

  3. Ci, tp oke ga ya buat pembersih sehari hari gitu? Aku ke kampus ga pakai heavy make up sih soalnya hehe. Takutnya malah harus cuci muka pake facial foam lg ;)

    1. Kalo pake sunscreen, ada bagusnya double cleansing sih biar bener2 bersih. Soalnya si bahan sunscreen suka bandel buat diremove.

  4. aku juga pake ini, udah hampir 3 bulanan! hehe aku beli di watsons kl ga salah 89rbuan :D jadi favourite ku setelah Bioderma, no breakouts at all even ada mineral oilnya, enaknya pas dibilas pake air jd keset dan pas di lap handuk, muka langsung tetep aku lanjut pake sabun muka biar ga ada sisa sisa oilnya, emang kl kena area bagian mata jd ngeblur... musti segera dibilas ^^

    1. Mungkin karena abis itu dicuci lagi kali yah, makanya mineral oilnya ga gitu nempel. Favorit juga nih! ^_^
