Cleansing Oil | Shu Uemura

As you may know, I love a bit of an oily cleanser.  Like attracts like, so oil picks up oils and dirt.  My beloved Boots Botanics Cleansing balm died about 2 months ago, and I am sooooooooooooo angry that my local Boots, as well as others I have been to, have not restocked.  The staff can't even come up with an answer as to why.  Big fat grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  I have been using the Coconut Oil that was featured in my March faves, BUT it is not specific to the face, and as my skin is playing up, I need a face-specific product.  Now, hopefully soon you'll get to read my Shu Uemura foundation review but atm the sample is MIA so I can't get any pics for uuuuu.  So just so you know,I went to Shu Uemura in House of Fraser and the lovely Angel gave me a sachet of their Brightening Cleansing Oil when I asked about it, and then decided to give me a lovely mini (20ml) bottle of it.  
And I think I may have found my Holy Grail Cleanser.  I have so far used my little bottle about twenty times, and you I've hardly used any of it up!  The oil itself is slippery but not greasy, and I looooooooooooove massaging it into my face.  
You're supposed to apply, massage, add water to emulsify, massage, and rinse off.  
I have done this routine a couple of times, and it is just so lovely, and relaxing.  Sometimes after the emulsification I used my trusty Clari (who I have been neglecting of late) to really work the product in and give myself a deeeeeeeeeeeep clean.  After rinsing off, my face is soft, smooth and bright.  Eurgh I cannot express how much I love it.  I am buying it.  Even with no money.  I will buy it! (maybe)!

Love A.x
