Gone are the days when I could away with a simple cleansing with Cetaphil or Physiogel–or even virgin coconut oil, when it would double as my cleanser and moisturizer at night. Thanks to my new mascara favorites, I’ve had to level up my makeup removing game. Thankfully, something was up to the task: Biore.
Of course I’ve heard about Biore before, but as I mentioned, I’ve never had much reason to seek it out. Now that I wear makeup more often than usual (at least when I go to events where I know I’ll be photographed), Biore Kao Make-up Remover Perfect Oil has become a regular thing. It’s my favorite among Biore’s many make-up removers because it’s quite lightweight for an oil formula. I normally don’t use an oil remover unless I’m wearing heavy make-up, but I feel this is light enough on my skin to use for everyday even if I’m not wearing full foundation. I usually have mascara on, which is my main reason for using it. It takes me two pumps to completely wash the mascara off (and with the help of a Q-tip to get into the inner corners and lower lashes). If you’ve read my The Kikay Kit Countdown, you’ll know that I use very very serious mascaras (all used in one go) that don’t budge even when I do watersports: Browhaus’ Waterproof HD and Younique’s 3D Microfiber Lashes. Not to mention, I’m now also using Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner II for tight lining, which is thick, inky and sweat-proof. It doesn’t easily come off unless I use an oil remover. Tip: pump once and use that amount to clear heavy eye makeup first. Use a Q-tip to get to the inner corners of your eyes. Use the second pump to clear off remaining makeup all over your face then rinse it off with water. I like to follow with a foaming cleanser and toner most of the time, though if you’re not really wearing heavy makeup, you may not have to do so.
When I’m traveling, I like Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths. It’s not your regular cleansing cloth because the material is not the flimsy kind–which is how it can hold an incredible amount of product. Just squeeze it and you’ll be surprised to see just how much. If you buy the bigger pack, it comes with a little container to make sure that it’s sealed.
Biore Micellar Cleansing Water so far seems to be the most popular among my peers. I haven’t tried it myself yet, though. As it’s water, of course it’s lighter than the Perfect Oil, but unlike the Perfect Oil, you’ll have to use this one with a cotton pad. Simply soak the cotton with the alcohol-free cleansing water then press onto your lids for five seconds before wiping off your eye makeup.
All in all, I’m quite impressed with Biore’s line of make-up removers. I’ve been hearing raves about their skincare line as well, particularly their sunscreen (any other recommendations?). Gotta try that soon, and I’ll let you guys know how it goes.
Biore make-up removers are available at Watson’s, Cash & Carry, PCX Alabang, PCX Rockwell, PCX Greenbelt, PCX Ermita, Landmark Makati, Landmark Trinoma and SM Makati Department Store.
