Beauty Finds: Sioris Fresh Moment Cleansing Oil Review

Welcome back to another Beauty Finds! This edition features perhaps one of my favourite Korean skincare brands, Sioris and their Fresh Moment Cleansing Oil.

I have a few requirements when it comes to beauty products: cruelty free, natural, clean, vegan better. I do my best to avoid nasty ingredients such as SLSs, parabens, PEGs, silicones, etc. Petrochemicals are the sneakiest with so many derivatives and aliases. I also avoid palm oil and it’s derivatives as I prefer orangutans. Coconut oil marketed as the good oil I’m also cutting down on as it can be just a damaging crop as palm oil. If I do get products containing palm or coconut oil I try to get organic or sustainably sourced. With make up it’s a little harder so I go for cruelty free brands. I prefer products with less plastic and thankfully more brands are aware consumers don’t want unnecessary plastic (or governments are telling them less plastic). My skin type’s oily sensitive, acne prone and now wrinkles. I know nothing stops those lines, but if I can delay them then….

Sioris Fresh Moment Cleansing Oil

A lightweight cleansing oil with Safflower seed oil that gently melts away makeup and diary dirt, while Sweet almond oil and Jeju Camellia oil leaving the skin supple, hydrated and nourished. 

Directions. Gently massage a small amount of cleansing oil over dry skin. Add elate to emulsify and continue to massage into the skin. Lastly, rinse with warm water.

I accidentally purchased this by mistake. I was previously using Urang Natural Cleansing Oil, and while I’m a true Taurus loyal, every now and then the rebel Taurean in me wants to try something new with huge inner turmoil that I’m switching products and brands. For a while I had switched to Sioris Day By Day Cleansing Gel and to be honest I didn’t notice that I’d switched products until working out what to buy one month, I was oh, there’s 2 and I’ve used both which explains why the lid are different! I honest thought they’d just changed packaging and put the price up. They’ve since switched the gel cleanser to a pump version.

After realising this and going back to repurchase I remember the Miin Sales Assistant saying there’s not much difference between Sioris and Urang’s oil cleansers with Sioris having 50ml more. To be honest I can’t remember what the gel version was like. I do remember that if you used hands instead of a make up remover pad it did get a little messy and if it got in the eyes stung a little.

Sioris is a brand I really like. A few products I haven’t liked however the majority I’ve tried I do. All the ingredients are clean, they favour natural ingredients and use in some products seasonal ingredients. I cleanse with firstly an oil based cleaner to remove make up and sunscreen then a foam based cleanser to removed the ‘water’ based dirt which is still Urang Creamy Foam Bubble Cleanser! That foam cleanser is the icing on the cake to the Sioris’s oil cleanser! 

Since I switched out Urang Natural Cleansing Oil for Sioris Fresh Moment Cleaning Oil, I think my skin has actually been better (even if I crash and sleep in makeup some night. I know, I know.) with less blackheads and acne in general unless my nutrition isn’t so good. While both are the same price, €29.95 you get 50ml more with Sioris. Fresh Moment Cleansing Oil feels like it’s wiping away make up and sunscreen. It’s oily without being too oily. It also removes oil well too. When I do facial exercises I use an almond and rosehip oil so my face can get urgh sometimes. I remove it massaging this cleansing oil and it cuts right through the almond and rosehip oil before the foam cleanser. Fight oil with oil right?!

Beauty Finds: Hair Care Bars Part 1

I’ve been reducing or trying to reduce my plastic waste for the past few years. Somethings are easier than others to replace with non plastic. Hair products aren’t going to to be anytime soon unless part 2 of The Hair Care Bars do a miracle on this girl’s fine wavy stubborn hair.

A friend recommended Lush hair bars. She’s also on a plastic freer journey. I should have taken my own advise from my last trip to Lush. Lush is a I like concept brand, the products just don’t do it for me. My hair however wasn’t fairing well from Freshly Cosmetics duo, it was that time of the month making me feeling a little down with I need a boost (with shopping. I always say shopping is modern day hunting. The thrill of the chase hunting down items adrenalin low key pumping) so I was okay lets try Lush hair bars to see if they’ll revitalise my hair. Something I’m working this year is to listen to my intuition more. So many times I’ve gone against that voice, not listened and I should have. That and not buying unwanted things, saving pennies. 

Anyways, my hair time is fine, oily easily damaged. You’d think not colouring it, no heat treatment, eating as healthy as I can, all the hair foods and taking brewers yeast tablets my hair would be in okay condition. Nope. I blame pollution! And the wrong products. Continue reading “Beauty Finds: Hair Care Bars Part 1”
