The Face Shop Rice Water Rich Cleansing Oil Review

For a long time now I have been obsessing over Korean Beauty and am I surprised with the results? Oh yes, I am!

I have been loving my skin and getting so many compliments. It is soft, supple, brighter and reduced pigmentation, what more I can ask for. Adding to my list of fabulous Korean beauty and skin products, I recently got The Face Shop Rice Water Bright in Light and Rich variants. Double cleansing is an essential part of Korean skincare and cleansing oil is the first step in it. Both of these variants are good but today I will review The Face Shop Rice Water Brightening Rich Cleansing Oil. Let's get started!

According to the Brand

Rice is rich in vitamins, amino acid, hydrochloric acid and other nutrients. These substances will remain in the water when the rice is washed. As a result, rice water enjoys a reputation as a natural skin care product, with its superior effects of moisturizing and brightening the skin.

-Mild cleansing: Mineral oil-free does not cause breakouts and skin irritation.
-Water-based light formula removes any leftover makeup
-Makes skin refreshed with rice oil and jojoba oil.
-Perfect cleansing: Rice oil and moringa oil purifies the skin and purifies any impurities.
-Can be used with wet hands and can be easily used during shower
-For Oily and Combination skin


$12 for 150 ml. I purchased it from Yesstyle at approximately Rs. 870-890 due to an ongoing discount.

How to Use

Apply to dry skin, massaging in a circular motion to dissolve makeup. Rinse with lukewarm water or wash off with foam cleanser.

Packaging & Texture

It comes in a transparent tinted pump bottle. Being transparent it is easy to know how much you are using and how much product is left. The pump allows it to be easy to travel with so you can take it with you. I love the gentle floral scent this one has. It does not stay on the skin for long. The texture of this oil is very light, although it says rich oil. It is very light on the skin and does not require much work to massage it all over the face.


  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Cleanses very well
  • Washable with water
  • Removes makeup without harming the skin
  • Requires very small quantity
  • Suitable for Oily skin as well
  • Did not break me out
  • Very light on the skin
  • The fragrance is soothing and floral
  • Great for double cleansing


  • Availability in India is an issue
  • The price might be a negative factor for some
  • Some people may not like fragrance

My Take

I really like this cleansing oil by The Face Shop. It is light weight and easy to use. I take about 2-3 squirts on my palm and massage it on my face. If you have makeup on your face, 3 pumps of oil are needed. If you are using it just for cleansing, 2 pumps are enough. After this, I wash my face with room temperature water. The bottle says to use lukewarm water, but I find that room temperature water is much relaxing. Water is enough to remove this oil from the face as it is washable with water, but for completely cleansing your skin, you will need foam face wash as well. This combination is a must for squeaky clean pores and skin.

This cleansing oil takes off all the makeup completely, cleansing my pores nicely. It does not dry out my face which is a nice thing. I have already ordered my second bottle from Yesstyle since it takes about 15-20 day for it to arrive. One bottle is enough to last for a month or with regular use twice daily.

I have combination skin which is prone to acne and yet, it hasn't broken me out. I can see visible brightening to my skin since I started using it. I recommend this product to everyone.
