Shu Uemura – The Skin Purifier

Sleep is one of the most important beauty secrets. That is why I treasure every single extra sleep minute I can have in the mornings. Hence the beauty procedures that work for me have to be quite straight forward and as hassle free as possible.

Few months ago it seems I have found my match made in heaven. That is the wonderful Skin Purifier by Shu Uemura. Getting up at 04.50am this morning (happens very rarely in my case), it was pure please to have a few pumps of purifying oil on my hand and get the face cleaned to start the day. The oil creates a warm yet refreshing sensation and really feels like the skin has got a thorough clean up. It also works brilliantly for removing makeup at the end of the day. Nothing else needed, just massage the oil on the face and wash it off with some warm water.

This skin purifier is particularly suitable for city dwellers, as the moringa extract removes the pollutants and anti-oxidative green tea extract relieves ageing stress.


This cleanser feels amazing to use and it’ll last you a very long time – 4 pumps they say you should use, but to be honest it must depend on the strength of the pump!

If you wanted to try out Shu Uemura products in style, then Liberty of London sometimes have some treatment sessions, where for the price of the treatment you get the treatment AND products to take home with out. What is most special that the treatment (at least the one I went to), was in a dim lit room with silver foiled ceiling, where Queen Mary once used to come and visit the store to try out jewellery. Talk about Royal treatment.



Available treatments at Liberty can be found here.

As Shu Uemura’s philosophy goes ‘make-up starts and finishes with cleansing.’
