Whether you prefer full-face or “no make-up” make-up, or perhaps you’re braving the day bare faced, the truth is your skin can really feel the effects of a long day. Rough texture, dull skin tone, large pores, blemishes and blackheads are but a few of the reasons why you must always completely remove make-up and cleanse properly. Enter FANCL’s MCO Mild Cleansing Oil, a cult classic with beauty insiders thanks to its incredible make-up removal and cleansing properties. Fortified with nano-cleansing technology, it will remove even the most stubborn, waterproof and long-lasting make-up there is, washing the day off and revealing skin that’s both clean and refreshed. Acting as a protective cushion from friction, the silky-smooth texture of the oil will ensure effortless make-up and dirt removal, while an enhanced Keratotic Plug Removal Oil helps to melt away built-up keratin and excess oil in your pores. FANCL’s MCO Mild Cleansing Oil is also free of preservatives, mineral oil, fragrance and artificial colourings, making it gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin and around the eyes.
“As the first step in washing off the day’s grime, MCO removes all the dirt and oil on my face with ease, keeping my skin soft and pores clean” Fontaine Cheng, Digital Editor
