I have been using the Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil for
years but I was in the mood to try something new (as I often like to do with beauty products).
So I decided to try the Laura Mercier Purifying Oil Light instead.
It is definitely lighter than the Shu Uemura oil but they are really both the same product overall. I don’t use this in the summer months – only when it starts to get dry outside or when my skin feels really dry.
It does a great job removing makeup and your skin doesn’t feel oily at all after you rinse it off with water. And I don’t feel like my skin is dry after using it like it sometimes gets with regular face cleansers.
