Kose Cosmeport Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil

Kinda hard to tell from this picture of the
packaging, but the refill is on the left and the
pump bottle is on the right.
Hello Readers!
I'm sick at home with the flu I was kind of at a loss about what to write about today. I mean, I was in no mood to swatch nail polish or to apply any makeup to my face, so I figured it was time to write a long overdue skincare review. 
I stumbled upon this Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil (I have no idea what makes this cleansing oil 'Speedy') after browsing through Kathi from Lotus Palace's reviews (by the way, I really enjoy reading this blog. She mentions so many Asian products that I would have otherwise never heard of and never tried). It was $13 on Sasa.com for a 230ml (which is a little over 7.75 fluid oz.) and a refill satchel of 170ml. What a fantastic price! You get over 13.5 fluid oz in smart packaging- with the refill satchel, it means less packaging waste. Thumbs up for being efficient. 
Not only is it really cheap, but it works amazingly well for me too. It's a big lighter than the Missha Perfect BB Deep Cleansing Oil, but I like the consistency because I find it easier to stroke over my skin. This oil cleanser is both scentless and is clear in color. 
I usually spend about five minutes during which time I can literally see my makeup melt away and the gross hardened sebum plugs work themselves loose from my nose area. After that, I rinse my face with warm water (it amazes me to no end every single time I see cleansing oils emulsify into that white, milky color) and follow up with another cleanser- my Neutrogena Oil-Free Stress Control Power-Cream Wash, just to make sure that I've removed all traces of the oil cleanser. 

I use two pumps of this oil cleanser each day, and the bottle plus the refill lasted me roughly five months. 

Shipping on Sasa is $6. This product goes out of stock very quickly, so you might want to sign up for email updates that alert you when it comes back into stock.

I was so thrilled with this product that it made me want to try more Kose products! In fact, I'll be reviewing the Kose Softymo Q10 Powder Wash shortly. 

Product was purchased by me, for my own use.
