Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil

Slightly yellow, a bit more fluid than for example a vegetable oil, smells rather strong

Hada Labo Cleansing oil

no colour, a bit more fluid than for example a vegetable oil, smells like olive oil


I tested the two cleansing oils on these 4 products. All those four products are quite hard to remove, especially the blue eyeliner (even though it's not waterproof...)

After massaging the oil for a few seconds. The gel eyeliner and the liptint vanished completely. The Kose Softymo oil (on the left) seemed to dissolve the waterproof eyeliner better than the Hada Labo one.

After massaging the oil in, you wet your palms and massage a few more seconds so the oil turns into a white milky texture.

After rinsing everything off. Both oils got rid of everything, just a little stain from the blue eyeliner is left. I have to say, nearly nothing gets completely rid off the blue eyeliner, so I'm not surprised to see a stain being left...

All in all:

I liked both oils so far. But I think I like the Hada Labo one a tiny little bit more. During cleaning it seemed like the Kose Softymo worked better, but in the end both oils got rid of almost everything. The Kose Softymo has a rather strong smell, that I personally don't like (it's the orange oil, I think) and also contains mineral oil. It's cheaper than most cleansing oils though (it's not that much cheaper online though...). So yeah, I prefer the Hada Labo Oil, just because I like the smell better (and I love Hada Labo products :p)

Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil: 4/5

Hada Labo Cleansing Oil: 4,5/5
