REVIEW (Korean Beauty) | Tony Moly Clean Dew Apple Mint Cleansing Oil (Korean Beauty)

Jojoba seed oil, apple mint extract (75mg), meadow foam seed oil, olive oil, pure green complex (Green tea water, tea tree water, and Japanese cypress water)

Maybelline Lash Sensational waterproof (review here) | Maybelline SuperStay 14HR lipstick (review here)
Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof liquid liner (review here) | Milani Liquid Eye (review here)

I consider these my most long wearing products for their select purposes

As you can tell the pencil liner was the first to go, followed by the lipstick. The liquid liner took a bit more effort and I had to really massage my hand for the waterproof mascara. Unfortunately I couldn't take photos while I emulsified the oil but it turns into a milky consistency and color.
When I used this cleansing oil on my lashes I noticed that the waterproof mascara never fully came off. You can't really tell but there were still little specks of the mascara when I washed it off.

MUFE Mat Velvet+ foundation (review here)
One of the longer wearing foundations I've tried, claims to be waterproof/sweatproof
The cleansing oil seems to have gotten most of it

Smells like apples
Removes non long wearing foundation and some waterproof makeup

Doesn't remove waterproof mascara entirely
Packaging kind of leaks
Heavier/thicker consistency compared to the Shu Uemura

~$9+ for 5 oz / 150ml on Ebay here

The Tony Moly cleansing oil made me realize how light and effective the Shu Uemura POREfinist one is (review here). I have since repurchased the Shu and haven't decided what to do with the Tony Moly.
As a cleansing oil, I think it's disappointing that it doesn't remove waterproof mascara entirely after messaging it for a long time. It does ok for waterproof eyeliner, but if you wear a really good liquid one it probably leaves a bit of residue. 
If you double cleanse your facial skin you should be ok face makeup wise, but I'm a little skeptical because sometimes I'd see a bit of residue on my toner cotton pads from the crevices of my face (mainly the side of my nose). My face is typically oily at the end of the day, and this cleansing oil doesn't feel fresh enough for my skin type. If you have dry skin this might work a bit better for you.


Do I recommend it?
No. There are drugstore cleansing oils in the US that are probably better than this.
