i don't need to review the scrub and facial cleanser i mentioned above - i simply love them.
as for my initial impression of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, i can't help but compare it with Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil (see my review here). but first, here are some pics:
first point: price. DHC's come in 200ml for S$42 while Fancl's come in 120 ml for S$33. without computing, you'd think "hey, DHC is cheaper". but it's not. you see, 1 ml of DHC is priced ~S$4.76 while Fancl is priced ~S$3.64.
second point: value for money. i've observed that with DHC i would need 2 squeeze of product compared to 1 of Fancl's. 'nuff said.
third point: effectivity. both proved to remove makeup (even waterproof mascara) easily - just apply product on dry face (no need for cotton balls/squares), wash off with water, pat your face dry and you're done! you can opt to use facial cleanser (if you're used to it) but i've tried once without doing so (for both cleansing oils) and my face really was clean just using the oils.
fourth point: availability. DHC can be bought at any Watsons branch (at least here in Singapore) while i have to visit a Fancl store if i want their cleansing oil.
verdict: i can definitely use DHC as a second option but my love still goes to Fancl. but to be fair, DHC delivers well plus it's highly accessible since Watsons have several branches across Singapore.
do you usually stick to skin care you love or switch when there is a similar new product?
