Holic Aroma H-4 Cleansing Review + GIVEAWAY

Annyeong, Everyone~
Since I finished with college and unemployed, I am trying my very best to write a new blog post everyday
but.....
Some days the sunlight is not out so I couldn't photograph products :(
The sunlight was back today so I took the opportunity to photograph a couple of photos hahaha
photograph all of the things as soon as the sun is out!!!!


I think this is my first review of the brand Holic Aroma in my blog. I mentioned this brand a couple of times in my Instagram and have been using and loving their products.

Holic Aroma is soooooooooooooo generous in providing me products for review purposes. When I received a parcel from them, it came in a big box. I was surprised as soon as I opened it at the post office because they gave alot!!!!!!! They gave so much that I had to pay some custom fees. But thats okay.

They are a natural and organic Korean brand and focusing on lessening the use of harmful substances in their products.

The brand has been renewed into Urang Natural (pronounced as you-rang natural) now where they revamp the looks of their original Holic Aroma product line and reformulated some of them and also introduced new products to the brand! HOOORRAAAYYYY for new products!!

Now onto the product.

The H-4 Cleansing is a cleansing oil that contains grapefruit seed oil, apricot and jojoba oil (full ingredients list below). It suits all skin types. I first was dubious that it might be too oily for my already oily skin but I end up LOVING IT SO MUCH.

This product is sadly has been discontinued and reformulated into a new cleansing oil version, which costs about USD 27/150ml. This old version is 120ml and I have no information about its price.


The cleansing oil's MFG date was dated in December 2015. At the bottom it says "EXP 12 MONTH" which I am not sure what it meant, either it expires 12 months after the MFG date or after product is opened, but at the same time the opened jar logo stated that product will expire after 6 months.

I still choose to use the cleansing oil anyway because I hate wasting. The cleansing oil doesn't even have a change in colour or odor, basically it doesn't have any faults, it is fortunate.

Packaging


The cleansing oil is dispensed using a pump with a small hole opening.

Since the hole is small, I usually pump out up to 10 pumps haha. I feel like 10 pumps is alot so it is reduced to 7 pumps now. There is a reason why I like to pump it out alot, you will find out below.

The body is a sturdy hard glass, so you know it is fragile. Definitely not travel friendly but you can always decant it into a smaller plastic bottle.

Ingredients



The ingredients list is short and simple with only 7 ingredients.
As you can see, there is alot of natural plant oils which is sooooo good.

Tocopherol is an antioxidant

The Apricot and Jojoba oil and Tocopherol has an acne irritant level of 2, which is quite low and they are not so high in the list. Despite having 3 possible acne causing ingredients, I am happy to report that this product doesn't break me out.

For the benefits of the natural plant oils, you can Google them cause I am lazy. But you know they give you good foods for the skin.

Consistency


Consistency is runny oily, light yellow in colour and IT SMELLS SO AMAZING. Do you know the smell of a freshly opened oranges?? THATS HOW IT SMELLS LIKE. I super love the oranges smell, it is not overwhelming for me. Since that I love the smell so much, most of the time I like to massage my face a bit longer just to indulge with the smell and the smell is also why I like to pump alot of the oil haha.

If you hate the smell of oranges or citruses, we can't be friends.


As a cleansing OIL, it is predictable that it gives an oily finish~ it doesn't feel so thick.

Effectiveness


Now I am demonstrating how effective the cleansing oil is in removing makeup. On my hand I have a concealer, cushion foundation, blue eyeliner, pink and red lipsticks and eyeshadows.


Just one pump to dissolve it all~

The oil dissloves the makeup well and turned into light purplish colour. Thumbs up.


The oil mixes well with the makeup. As you can see, none of the makeup are not removed on my hand. So it does a good job in removing makeup.

On actual application, I agree that it removes face makeup well because so far I do not detect any makeup residues on my cotton pad in toner stage.

As for removing mascara, I am not sure how will it perform since I use a separate mascara remover and I don't want for heavy things like oils to get into my eye.

I have been using this cleansing oil everyday day and night even when I do not use makeup. It makes my face clean.

When washed with water, it emulsifies into white and the oily residue is gone even with just rinsing with water. Even so, I always carry on with second cleanser after using it.

I pH-tested this cleansing oil and it has pH of 5~ low pH is gewdddddd.

My Final Thoughts

It is a great cleansing oil that cleanses the face and removes makeup well. It does its job, doesn't break me out and smells amazing. I don't have any complains about it.

I would really love to use this again but sadly it has been discontinued :( I hope the new version works the same as this version.

*Main product below is provided to me by BB Cosmetic. My review do not affect the fact that product is sponsored. April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…

[REVIEW] COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Haven't had the wifi for a week so I didn't get to write a blog post. I feel so lifeless and dead without wifi considering that I have nothing much to do while on a semester break. Wifi is my source of entertainment(and life). I am that kind of person who chooses to bring Wifi over water if I were to strand in an Island.
Now lets get going with one of the most used, raved and recommended COSRX product; COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review
This product contains Natural BHA to control oil while helping to clear recurring pimples. A non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin.
It is one of the recommended products at Jolse since it has alot of positive reviews. it is priced at USD15.30 currently at Jolse, for a 100ml product, the price is not bad. I bought this when I thought that I needed an acne-fighting toner/active product when my skin is breaking out and since I've seen alot of the Asian Beauty people on Instagram implementing this product in their skin…
