New + Reformulated Shu Uemura Anti Oxi Cleansing Oil

So back in August (or was it in July...?) Shu Uemura actually launchaed a reformulated Anti Oxi Cleansing Oil and I went to pick up some samples to try it out.

I have used the original and find that it removes make up in a jiffy and is just really lovely to use. The major complaint has always been that for the price point, Shu Uemura really should not be using mineral oil as the main ingredient for the cleansing oil.

Clearly, people at Shu Uemura have been listening and we now have this reformulated version!

I have to say that the scent is the same, and the product still blitzes through makeup like before. The only complaint now is that the price has gone up by quite a bit! However, this was almost to be expected because companies reformulate products to up the price, they repackage items to up the price, so if Shu Uemura was removing mineral oil, a by-product which is cheap, and replaced it with another oil, it is unsurprising really that the price for the cleansing oil has gone up!

If you like the original Shu Uemura Anti Oxi Cleansing Oil, you will not be disappointed by this reformulation. Sometimes companies mess up when they reformulate products and change a good product to one which we no longer like, but in this case, I think Shu Uemura did a good job reformulating this!
