So life has been hectic for me but i am not complaining. However, that also means that you will see less of my posts.
Gosh, i have so many backdated posts and i am so running out of time. 😦
But anyway, i have a review today which i reckon most of you ladies will be very keen and interested.
I received the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water and was really excited to try. Look, every lady is constantly looking for the best makeup remover.
However, everyone defines ‘best’ in different ways, some like it non alcoholic, some like it oil based, some like it to be more convenient – like a wipe or something.
Previously, Biore has this Oil based Cotton Facial Sheets and i thought that was quite good. It cleans off (make up) quite quickly and effectively in my opinion.
I wouldnt say Biore produces the best make up remover products but i believe they are constantly R&D-ing till they are among the top brands that have the most ranges of make up remover products for consumers.
Anyway, i am not a fan of oil based make up remover. I hate the greasy feeling, i hate that removing make up has to be oily and makes my face feel like a piece of roti prata. That is also why i did not bother to remove my make up and simply just cleanse my face using normal cleanser.
When i receive the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water, i am quite hopeful that it will work as well as the Cotton Facial Sheets.
Firstly, let me just go through the mandatory introduction to this product:
Biore, the No. 1 Makeup Remover brand in Singapore and Japan, has recently expanded its makeup remover selection through the launch of the New Biore Micellar Cleansing Water, a water-based Makeup Remover that has high cleansing abilities yet gentle enough for all skin types.
Using Watery Micellar Technology, this lightweight and refreshing makeup remover lifts off more traces of makeup in just 1 wipe, including mascara and eyeliner. Made with Natural Mineral Water from the Japanese Alps, it is gentle on skin and leaves a refreshing, non-sticky and non-oily after feel on skin.
– Oil free
– Fragrance free
– Alcohol free
– Colorant free
– Non-comedogenic (does not clog pores)
– Allergy and opthalmologst tested
Make up i had on my face : Eyebrow drawn, Dark Brown Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Highlight and shadowing on my nose, lipstick
There isnt any mascara as i am having eyelash extension
Directions are quite straightforward:
Pump an appropriate amount onto a cotton pad. Use soaked cotton pad to gently wipe off makeup. No rinsing required. For eye makeup, place soaked cotton pad onto closed eyes and hold for 5 seconds before gently wiping off. Repeat until all makeup is removed, and cotton pad is cleaned.
I cleaned my left side (your right) to show the comparison. Eyebrow was previously drawn was wiped away, highlights and shadows on the nose gone, brown eyeshadow is gone too. Lipstick remains thou.
Overall, i will rate this product a 8.5/10 firstly because it is very convenient. Thou it did not manage to remove my lip stains completely, it is still considered quite good when it comes to removing the rest of the make up. As i am having eyelash extension on, this product is a perfect match for me. As oil based make up remover is a big NONO for ladies with eye lash extension, this cleansing water is the ideal make up remover.
The cleansing water does not leave any greasy or sticky texture after cleansing (claps claps!), I felt refreshed after removing all the makeup.
But i would prefer double cleansing although the cleansing water serves a second function as normal cleansing.
I personally love this product just because it is not oil based and it is good news for my eye lashes (haha) and i will continue using it till i find a better and more affordable price.
