Awhile ago, I posted about the Muji sensitive skin cleansing oil, still one of my favorites. Since then, I have gone through three different bottles of it (in various sizes) and have noticed that there are (at least) two versions.

My first attempts at oil cleansing involved using Banila & Co's Clean it Zero to … Continue reading My Struggles with Double Cleansing – Review of Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil and Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser
