The Baking Powder series is made for people who break out and has pimples
Pores get clogged mainly because cleansing isn't done properly

smells like tangerine, the foam is fine 

Cleansing foam are NOT for people who has dry skin.
They are more for people with normal and combination skin.
I do not suggest using it in the morning, since cleansing foams are more heavy cleansers than cleansing water/ gel.
I suggest using it after you removed your make up at night.

I always liked make up remover foam, this one is just perfect!!
It feels so clean and fresh!!
No need to use cleansing oil + cleansing foam anymore.... one step is fine~
I use it as a cleansing foam when I don't have make up on, but it's such a waste.... so just gonna use it as a make up remover~

Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil

I bought this set when I was in Osaka, 1000 yen a set, very good deal!!!
In Asia, the Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil have sold over $2.5 million bottles!!
I've read a lot of good things about this cleansing oil, so excited to finally get to try it!!!

Ingredients include white pond seed oil which can dissolve impurities within pores. 
It also contain anti-oxidants that helps to brighten your skin and protect it against environmental damages.  

I do make up on a daily basis, so I do have high expectation for cleansing oil.
If it doesn't cleanses well, impurities get left behind and your skin will have pimples, pores get clogged... skin will become sensitive... 
so cleansing is super super important!!! 

I use a separate remover for lips and eyes, but the Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil is so strong I don't have to use another remover....
It removes mascara and eyeliner without any problems!!!
Rich and thick in texture, it stays on your face for awhile, giving you enough time to massage the cleansing oil and deep cleanses your pores.
However, for waterproof make up (mascara, lipstick), I still recommend using a lip and eye make up remover. 

Removes make up and hydrates your skin at the same time, no dryness or tightness at all!!

Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula

150 mL, $31 USD, 450 mL $67 USD

This is one of the best cleansing oils in the market! It can remove even the strongest waterproof and long lasting make up! Suitable for any skin type. The "advanced formula" was derived from the original "classic" formula. I love the original one already, so I got the new one too!! 

Camellia oil - famous ingredient in Japanese products for its restorative, anti-oxidizing and moisturizing properties

Deep Sea Water - found from 200 meters under the sea, provides hydration and moisture, improves skin quality and enhances skin transparency

Ginger root extract - uses an ancient herbal formula, oil is extracted from ginger roots

Advanced hpo system - new generation hop system which combines 4 different kinds of oil to dissolve long lasting and waterproof make up

Cleansing oils are usually for people with normal or oily skin. Those with dry skin are better off with cleansing milk or cleansing cream. Some cleansing oils are more runny, whereas others are thicker in texture. I like to use the thicker cleansing oils, cause it can stay on my face longer without running everywhere. Most cleansing oils can at least remove your face make up, such as foundation, blush, highlights. Some stronger ones like the Shu Uemura cleansing oils can also remove eye and lip make up. 

Pump 2-4 times on dry hands.
Begin massaging the oil into your face. This will remove make up, dirt and other impurities. 
Using slow and firm motions massage the oil deeply into your pores. Take time and focus on problem areas (such as your T-zone and chin). You want the oil to dissolve all your blackheads.
Add a few drops of warm water to face to emulsify (oil will turn milky white).
Rince with warm water.

As a make up remover: pump 1-2x on a cotton pad and wipe gently and thoroughly on eye areas with make up

What I like about this one is that it's super clean and takes off make up fast!! You don't need to follow up with another foamy cleanser, cause it does a really good job cleansing by itself. But if you want, you can still use a foamy cleanser to feel more clean.

H2O Face Oasis Cleansing Water

243 mL (~$24 USD, ~$32 CDN)

For the next 2 weeks, I will be reviewing different kinds of cleansers, such as cleansing water, oil, gel, foam, washing powder, and make up remover. Cleansing is such an important step and if your cleanser doesn't do a good job, your skin suffers!!

Sea Mineral Complex, Wakame, Sea Fennel, Sea Lettuce, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Provitamin B, Glycerin

Cleansing water can deliver lots of hydration to your skin! 
It's suitable for any skin type.
It can be used as a cleanser and as a make-up remover. 
I use it as a cleanser in the morning cause during this time, you skin is not so dirty and you are really only removing your night time skincare. 
You would definitely want to stay away from a strong cleanser, such as foam or washing powder. 
A strong cleanser in the morning will dry out your skin and cause tightness.

The H2O Face Oasis Cleansing Water has that face oasis smell...
it helps to balance water moisture on your skin, makes my skin fresh, soft and smooth. 
My skin feels hydrated!! feels like as if I don't need to follow with a toner after that too... 
as a make up remover, it cleanses OK... 
you still want to use something strong such as a foam cleanser after that. 
However, for mascaras and eye shadows, you are better off using an eye and lip make up remover.
