Shu Uemura Mamechiyo Whitefficent Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

How beautiful is this limited edition collection from Shu Uemura? The iconic, Japanese make up and skincare brand has teamed up with modern day kimono artist Mamechiyo, to embellish a collection of products. The collection uses traditional Japanese kimono motifs with a combination of candy stripes and butterflies for a truly stunning collection.

In this post, I’m going to return to an old favourite, Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. Back in my modelling days, one of my favourite make up artist, used to use Shu Uemura make up on me and introduced me to their cleansing oils for removing my make up post shoot. When I spotted the limited edition Mamechiyo range, I couldn’t help but think that this was the perfect time to try it again.

I’ve been using the Shu Uemura Whitefficent Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil. This cleansing oil focuses on improving skin tone and texture with a blend of Prune Extract and Sakura Leaf Extract. The limited edition bottle feature a sakura print, referencing the ingredient. How pretty is that?

This particular Cleansing Oil is designed to work at preventing pigmentation in the skin, making it ideal for skin that is prone to age spots and sun damage. It also contains ingredients that will hydrate and heal skin, such as amino hydrators and deepsea water. Vitamin C and B3 help to control melanin production as well as feeding the skin.

The Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils feel so wrong to use, you apply the oil to dry skin and it feels like your massaging cooking oil into your face, once you add water, the oil emulsifies and gently lathers off, leaving skin smooth, clean and toned. The oil based cleanser is great for removing all types of make up very easily. I wouldn’t choose to use this everyday, as I am still a huge fan of my Liz Earle cleanser, but I would always turn to this as a second choice or for removing very stubborn make up.

The Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils come in huge 450ml bottles, with a pump dispenser. So, if you compare this to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish at 200ml, this is mega value for money. Retailing at £56.50, it is steep, but it’s going to last you ages!

What have you tried from Shu Uemura? Do you use a cleansing oil?

  1. […] the evening, I’ll have lots of make up to remove and find that Shu Uemura Skin Purifier is the quickest way, it’s an oil which you apply to dry skin, when you add water it’s […]

  2. I absolutely adore the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils! They’re pricey, but well worth it! 🙂 I tend to use it once or twice a week to give my face a nice cleanse. The Mamechiyo range looks so lovely, I may well have to stock up just for the packaging! Another product unrelated to cleansing oils which I’ve been using by Shu Uemura is the Brightening UV Under Base Mousse. It keeps my makeup lasting hours! 🙂 Sophia xo

    1. I’ve been trying the Base Mousse too, but can’t decide if I like it or not. The cleanser is a good one too, lasts for ages!

      1. The purple/pinky hue is a bit daunting at first, but I think it was because I applied too much! Starting to get used to it now though and really like it 🙂

        1. Thanks for the tip! I’ll have to give it another whirl this week and see if less is more!
