Cleansing with orp TOKYO ♡

Got these cleansing items from Harajucute some time back, been using and testing them out for a while, and now it's time for a review! The Natural Peeling gel and Moist Cleansing Oil from orp TOKYO ♡ And a Loved Loved Nude Bamboo Mask sheet.

orp TOKYO Moist Cleansing Oil.
This is the Moist Cleansing Oil, it comes in a pretty 120ml clear bottle with a rhinestone on it.

It's ranked #1 on in 2011 for the cleansing oil section!
You can't go wrong with rankings; they're done by regular consumers and not some award-type ranking doled out by magazines/companies, so Japanese cosmetic brands take pride in displaying the ranking if their products manage to get one.

Anyway, the cleansing oil claims to be free from six additives:
- alcohol-free
- compound surfactant-free
- antiseptic-free
- genetically modified organism-free
- mineral oil-free
- artificial colorant-free

The product has a slight lemony scent, very refreshing!

It also contains 12 "beauty" oils; Macadamia Nut Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Rice Germ Oil, Hazel Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Camellia Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil and Grapefruit Peel Oil.

Here's demonstrating its removing power:
[1] I've got 4 types of eyeliner on the back of my hand: Dolly Wink's Liquid Eyeliner, K-Palette's Real Lasting Eyeliner Waterproof, Urban Decay's 24/7 Pencil Liner in Perversion, and K-Palette's Real Lasting Pencil Liner.
[2] Pumped out half a pump of the cleansing oil.
[3] Rubbing the oil all over the back of my hand.
[4] After wiping the oil off with a tissue. Tadah~ Everything's gone, with no residue at all. (You're supposed to rinse off with water, but since I did this in the bedroom...I just used a tissue.)

orp TOKYO Natural Peeling.
Like the Moist Cleansing Oil it's also got a pretty rhinestone on the packaging! And it's pink.
As it's also part of the 6 additives-free series, it's alcohol-free, compound surfactant-free, antiseptic-free, genetically modified organism-free, mineral oil-free and artificial colorant-free.

There are many of these "peeling gel" type products in the market. I've tried Dr Jart's Pore Medic one a few years ago...and it broke me out so I stopped using it and other peeling gel type products. But since this one was Japanese, and I absolutely trust Japanese skincare products because of the strict regulations they have regarding the R&D, I decided to give it a try.

[1] Squeeze some product onto the area you want to exfoliate.
[2] Massage the gel around the area, and little balls of dead skin will start to form. It doesn't hurt at all! Rinse it off with warm water. The product can be used on all parts of the body, not just the face.

According to the product description, the gel is a three-chambered electrolyzed alkaline water-based product. It is specially designed to distinguish new from old skin, and provides protection as well as moisture to keep your skin fresh. Plus, the aromatic rose oil will leave your skin feeling soft and clean after usage.

Anyway, here's the rest the lineup of orp Tokyo's "6 additives-free" series.
Left to right: Moist Cleansing Oil, Deep Cleansing Gel, Spots Cleaner, Natural Peeling, Moist Soap, Aqua Charge Lotion, Moisture Honey Milky Beauty Serum.
The packaging is sooo pretty; pink, filigree and rhinestone! ♥
Here's a link to their website:

Also received a Loved Loved Nude Bamboo Mask, but I have yet to try it.
Saving it for a really bad skin day, because for me Japanese masks are great in terms of efficacy!
