Mia's Review: Neo Rosehip Oil Cleanser [Sponsored]

Recently, after using up my current daily facial wash, I was introduced to LIN's Australia, a pretty new (at least, to me) Singapore based beauty & skincare e-store carrying a wide range of Australian products that seeks to bring nature into our urban settings.

Envisioning the needs of modern living, LIN's embraces a natural and an organic concept that holistically intertwines all your senses, proffering the ultimate sensory adventure and capturing the good from the earth, transforming its beauty into a conglomerate of touches, scents and visuals.

In LIN's, you can assimilate a range of quality skin, body, hair and scented natural products with an organic interpretation of beauty into an everyday routine. Extracted from plants with selective bottling of nature, we deliver gentle, wholesome and delicate products that are the best off our soil.

LIN's is really generous to send me a full sized Neo Rosehip Oil Cleanser (250 ml, RTP $62) to try out! 
Deep and delicate cleansing - our motto! Help remove dirt, impurities, makeup and unwanted white and black heads - with neo's Rosehip Oil facial Cleanser. Blended in orange extracts, walnut and coconut. A cleanser designed with a gentle built in scrub, perfect to use everyday.

I've been using it every night in the showers for almost 2 weeks now and is still left with lots of product, so be rest assured that the $62 will last you quite a while. 

Even though it contains walnut shell (which I've heard some saying that it's too harsh on our skin), the amount of it is actually very sparse, as you can see from the widely spread out specks in the gel, and hence gives a very mild, barely there scrubbing feeling on the skin. 

The cleanser is of gel consistency and doesn't soap up at all, which is a good thing for ladies with dehydrated skin as the soap suds will tend to strip our skin of too much moisture, making our skin feel squeaky after every wash. Scent wise, it has a nice, soothing rose smell to go with the gentle scrubbing actions from the fine walnut shell powder to leave our skin smooth and supple after every wash. 
Unlike other strong scrubbing wash which left my skin 'flushed' and red after a short while of continuous daily usage, Neo Rosehip Oil Cleanser still leaves my skin feeling refreshed, smooth and supple after my daily washes after using it for almost 2 weeks straight. 

Now, let's see the cleanser in action, shall we?

Greedily, I've actually smeared half a pump of my Pixi liquid foundation onto half the area on the back of my hand, hence the patchiness and chalkiness of my skin. 

As I rubbed the cleanser in, it quickly 'emulsified' the foundation off my skin.

You probably cannot see the effect off the picture, but most of the foundation has been washed off in just 1 wash! 
But of course, this cleanser is not a 2-in-1 make up remover/facial cleanser, so be sure to remove your make up thoroughly with a proper make up remover before using this rosehip oil cleanser to thoroughly remove the remaining residues!

  3. Never heard of Neo before but this cleanser looks promising. I was looking at the ingredient list on one of the pictures and it's great to see that most of it is natural or plant derived. I'll definitely be giving this a closer look and see if I can get it here.

  4. never thought that rosehip oil can be used as cleanser since we usually see it in its oil form to address scars etc. thanks for sharing!

  5. I tend to like ingredients with Rose hip in them so this seems like something I would try! I love how the bottle looks too.

  6. I haven't heard of this product before but it looks interesting.. I have major skin issues so I dislike having products that aren't natural based on my skin..I'll do more research on this.. Thanks a bunch for the post
