Thank you Biore and Samplestore.com for sponsoring another product — Biore Micellar Cleansing Water.
I was attracted to this product the minute I received it because the bottle is pink! The princess-y gem-like bottle is really cute. Ok, but that’s just me. Lol.
I’ve been using Fancl’s make up remover all this while simply because it’s the best, but ever since Fancl stopped operations here in Singapore, I’ve been wondering what I would use after my supply of make up remover finishes. Maybe the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water is the replacement I am looking for!
My make up regime is really not that complicated and is definitely not super heavy: concealer, foundation, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner (pencil and liquid), mascara, brow liner, lip balm and lip gloss.
One full pump is almost enough to wet the whole cotton pad.
Before I jump into the results, let me tell you more about the cleansing water. It contains natural mineral water from the Northern Japanese Alps which makes it gentle to the skin. Enriched with collagen and white tea extract, the cleansing water will leave skin brighter, softer and more supple. Its anti-bacterial formula helps to prevent pimples and breakouts, and minimises pores for clearer and a more refined complexion. Most importantly, the watery micellar technology used in this cleansing water effectively dissolves and lifts of more traces of make up in one wipe!
It’s alcohol free, fragrance free, oil free, colorant free, allergy and opthalmologist tested, and non-comedogenic. So it’s really suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin!
My make up came off quite easily with a few wipes. Used only two cotton pads for half my face. For my eye make up, as instructed, I held the cotton pad on my eye for five seconds before gently wiping off. I was quite surprised that most of my eye make up came off quite easily in one wipe except for the mascara which needed a few more wipes.
To show you how easily my make up came off, I decided to do a test on the back of my hand. The foundation and powder blend is on the top half of my hand…can’t really see it in the photo but it’s there. In order of the lines on my hand: eyeshadow, white pencil eyeliner, black pencil eyeliner, black liquid eyeliner and mascara. Lip gloss is on the left. I only forgot to draw a line using my brow liner.
This was what came off after one wipe…
Yup! Almost everything came off except the mascara. But no worries, that came off after a few more gentle wipes.
I was honestly surprised that the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water worked so well. The great part is there’s no sticky or oily after feel. No rinsing is even required! My skin did feel clean and refreshed!
This product is available in all pharmacies, hypermarkets and supermarkets, and major departmental stores. It retails for a mere $18.90. Definitely worth it!
