Mizon King to the Kong King's Berry Cleansing Oil

Mizon King to the Kong No. 1 King’s Berry Cleansing Oil is a massive 13.8 oz bottle of cleansing oil available from Korean beauty brand, Mizon. After nearly eight months I’m proud to say that I’ve just finished off my bottle of Mizon King to the Kong No. 1 King’s Berry Cleansing Oil.

Like King, this bottle is massive! Even Shu’s larger size Cleansing Oil is smaller in comparison coming in at 13.4 oz in size! So if you’re one that doesn’t like to replace skincare often this here cleansing oil is for you!

I’m actually a massive fan of Mizon’s King to the Kong Collection. It’s such a cute range of products plus many of the items are excellent skincare pick ups. Although I personally ALWAYS find the name confusing! King’s Berry Cleansing Oil? I assume it would smell like berry…but it’s just a reference to black chokeberry in the ingredients which apparently is an excellent source of antioxidants for your skin. It actually has a very strong herbal lavender fragrance. Apparently lavender isn’t exactly the best thing in the world to apply to sensitive skin and it really isn’t a beneficial skincare ingredient and is mostly used to add fragrance. Personally, I’ve never had an issue with it so I’m not bothered by it but it is something to keep in mind if you’re sensitive as ALL of King’s products have it as an ingredient. This is mineral oil based as well. I’ve never had an issue with mineral oil but if it is a problem for your skin you might wish to avoid.

The actual oil is clear and a little thinner in consistency than some of my other cleansing oils but it does have a slick, emollient feel when applied on skin. Too many people assume cleansing oil is something to fear because they are scared it’ll make them oily. It does not! It breaks down and emulsifies (goes milky) when water is added and it does not leave a film behind nor does it leave skin greasy or shiny so any skin type can benefit from using it.

To use the cleansing oil simply apply it on your face (don’t remove any of your makeup) and massage in slow circles around your face and over your eyes if you have eye makeup or mascara on. Now add a little water and massage some more. The oil will break down, thin out, and emulsify as you add water! It become milky and at this point you can rinse away both the oil and all your makeup. Cleansing oil is very, very effective at breaking down makeup and cleansing skin. You can double cleanse should you like and follow up with a foaming facial cleanser but it isn’t necessary.

This does an excellent job removing every single bit of my makeup and doesn’t dry my skin out in the least. My skin feels soft and smooth after using it and I had no issues with break outs due to the lavender.

What really sets the Mizon King to the Kong No. 1 King’s Berry Cleansing Oil is the size and the price. Shu’s Cleansing Oil at the 13.4 oz size is $42 to $57 per bottle where as King’s version gives you a little more at 13.8 oz and will set you back around $25 to $30 bucks! A great deal to be sure.

I get my Mizon King to the Kong No. 1 King’s Berry Cleansing Oil from Ebay.com seller F2Plus1.

    Did you happen to have any issues with this bottle leaking? I use the Garnier cleansing oil and, though I love it, every single bottle I’ve purchased leaks like crazy!! I’m not talking about carrying it around sideways or upside down either (though it obviously leaks that way too), I’m talking about it sitting upright and stationary on my bathroom counter…and I still find oil all around it on the counter! It drives me insane. If this one doesn’t leak, I’m definitely up for trying it. 🙂

    What type of skin do you have? I started using it and broke out so bad. Not sure if I needed to completely break out first before my skin gets better or if oil cleansing isn’t right for me.
