I was at Sana Singapore yesterday, where I was given a bottle of Natural Resource Cleansing Oil (S$34.90) to try. I tested it while I was there and at home, when I removed my makeup.
I like how it is emollient without being too runny and how there is no resistance when I dissolve makeup with it, unlike some cleansing oils that have a certain density which impedes quick cleaning. In addition, not only did my makeup wash off cleanly when the oil emulsified with water, it also has a relaxing scent.
The texture and effectiveness of this additive-free cleanser is similar to that of the famous Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil but the latter doesn’t have its soothing scent. Composed of bergamot, geranium, grapefruit, lavender and rosewood, the gentle aromatic mix is something I really like.
Would I pay for this? Absolutely. Why? Its efficacy + scent = a potent combination! :)
A word of caution though – this cleanser can sting the eyes, so do be careful around the eye area.
I was on a hunt for this & went all the way to where the range was. When I got there, somehow decided not to get this. :p BTW it is about $9 cheaper in HKG.
Why not? The packaging? ;) Oh, it’s much cheaper in HK!
Where can I find SANA in Singapore?
You can find the different ranges of Sana products at Sasa. It used to be available at Watsons but the company is phasing out its products from there. Some Sana items will also be available at Guardian, while a few can be found at Nishino Pharmacy.
Lots of stuff are cheaper in HKG. The display has a lot to do with it, dusty & left in abandonment. Then I was not sure I like the scent. Also I was totally shopped out(Nars & JS) by then.
Yikes, Farah! A dusty counter?!
hey babe, do u think its more worth it to buy this instead of fancl? how many ml is this?
It’s 180 ml. I can’t recall the volume of the Fancl oil, so I can’t comment on the value for money aspect.
This was one of my all time fave cleansing oil!
I’m not surprised! :D
The cleanser & MU remover were boxed & all but the general testers were all so icky & everywhere, the dust seems to be not an issue.
That sounds really gross though, Farah!
Yes it is!!! They really should clean up…maybe I should let Sana Japan know.
I guess I will. Hope they clean it up!
Let me know when they respond!
Hi, I’m the Brand Manager of SANA Singapore. Thanks for the interests in our products. I do understand about the dusty images which stop you from buying the products. Can i know which sasa store you went to that has a dusty counter? I’ll need to feedback to Sasa head office so that they will take action about it.
My friend was referring to the counter she’s seen in Hong Kong. :)
