Shu Uemura's Ultime8 Cleansing Oil has rescued my post-Christmas skin from break-outs.

I had already tried, and loved, their Classic High performance Balancing Cleansing Oil, but this version is even more luxurious feeling.

It contains eight botanical origin oils to combat a whole slew of skin concerns, making skin feel smoother, more refined, more radiant and revitalized.

It's been a lifesaver at quick and easy makeup removal too, even cutting through waterproof mascara and eyeliner with ease.

The oil melts makeup with ease, and then emulsifies with a few splashes of warm water, leaving my skin deeply cleansed and feeling balanced.

Shu Uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil is available at Brown Thomas Dublin, €51 for 150ml.
