One skin care product all men should consider using

[Off topic]

Happy weekend!

There are such rare occasions when I get invited – not directly, but as a date to beauty events. Such is life, and the last “beauty event” I attended was the new Shu Uemura store launch at The Powerplant Mall in Rockwell. I didn’t care much for the make up and was more busy gallyvanting with Daniel Tan in between his shoots. I’m not too comfortable with the crowd in lifestyle events – not because I dislike the general atmosphere, but because I don’t know too many people. Tech press conferences are very different in tone, pacing and atmosphere from the lifestyle ones.

I did have a take home though – a loot bag from Shu Uemura. I gave all of it to my mom except for this one sampler bottle of Skin Purifier, High Performance Cleansing Oil you see above. Wow. After the Swiper demonstrated to myself and the Beautynomist how it is a very effective make up removal, facial cleansing, and diluting oil, I was urged to try it out for a few days. OK what did I have to lose right? I’ve never really used a “beauty product” out of due diligence, and I wouldn’t usually care less. But yeah, sounding like a girl from off a beauty commercial, “my face feels so much softer and smoother.” 🙂

And it’s a powerhouse for make up removal. I was part of this viral campaign for Axe and having had a ton of make up on, I removed it the fastest with this one (note: I’ve been in theater and had to wear stage make up for performances and it was always so hard to remove!).

I did a lot more research on Shu Uemura’s cleansing olls and yeah, apparently they’re really top notch, if you can afford them . The bottles are expensive – at P1,7xx.00 for the small one and P4,xxx.00 for the huge economy sized one.

To the geeks – if you spend a lot of time in front of the computer, this is your saving grace.


Fast forward. Reading this post now after taking a break makes me wonder why I wrote it in the first place. I guess it’s one of those things you just have to share when you make small discoveries which are so off from your niche. Hehe. Please don’t judge me.

Let my flawless face be the judge. Bwahaha! Can’t resist. 😛

ok fine.. i’m not one to comment.. but since you’re so proud of it i have to admit that your face is smooth and soft. I can’t believe you use shu! good job phoebe on converting the boyfriend!

Highly recommended huh? I’ll let the hubby try it all the more since “he spends a lot of time in front of the computer” 🙂

I just joined this Shu Uemura make-up workshop today and this product was also in the goodie-bag they gave me. I’ve heard so much great stuff about Shu especially this magical oil cleanser before but would always prefer the western branded skincare (right now I use The Body Shop) when Asian-made skincare is actually better since you’re Asian right?

It really is a great product! I’m amazed.. even so that my mom bought the big economy sized one but she bought the green one (anti-oxidant since she’s a breast cancer survivor) and I’m gonna ask her how it goes in the next coming weeks. I have a feeling she won’t have any problems =)

I can’t help but give you a LOL on this. I so wanted to try this but the price is just too much.
I used to pride myself for being low-maintenance, but as you grow old, the skin isn’t as supple as it used to be. Now I need to put a couple of products just to make sure my face doesn’t age as fast. Blah.

i recently purchased the cleansing beauty oil premium.. i think its same as yours.. not sure. right on pocket denting price… but so right on how it removes on makeup effectively. the bf is so adamant at being pa-macho that no beauty product will touch his face… told him that he had no choice but to share mine after reading this entry! lol! let’s cross our fingers that he will like this too.. 🙂

Thanks for such an important articles about Anti Aging. This is a very needed because my friend sis is suffering from anti aging and i want to help her.
so please guide me.
