The latest Bioré makeup remover promises effective removal of heavy eye and lips makeup even glitters and fake lashes leaving no oily residue behind with micro cleaning formula. It is also the number one makeup remover brand in Japan. It contains hyaluronic acid that moisturizes the skin, dermatologically and opthalmologically tested.
Here is how the actual product looked like. Everything is just so pink including the solution in the bottle. It comes in 130ml, made in Japan. On the packaging, it has more information on this makeup remover:
“Worried about losing precious eye lashes from excessive wiping or stressing this delicate area that is prone to wrinkles and fine lines?
Bioré micro cleansing formula removes eye & lip makeup quickly!
- Thorough removal: Soften even heavily-layered waterproof mascara and thoroughly cleanses from root to top and in-between lashes. Also removes eye makeup like gel, liquid eyeliner and glitter eye shadow.
- Gentle on eyes & lashes: Reduces need for excessive, heard and repeating wiping around eyes.”
Let’s refer to the image above closely. On the left image, see how I have labeled 1 and 2? The remover contains great goodness for your delicate eye area. On 1 which is the white layer of solution, contains cleansing agent to soften and dissolve eye/lip makeup while on 2 which is the pink solution, contains hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated. In order to use it, you have to give it a good shake before using, both solution combines and becomes milky pink (refer right image).
Dispense it on a facial cotton and you are ready to go for the challenge! In my case, I like to squeeze the facial cotton after dispensing, for the solution to spread evenly on to the entire facial cotton. You don’t need much , just look at how much of the solution that I have dispense that does wonders.
Just leave it for 5 seconds to allow the remover to work its magic and gently wipe it off. In the packaging, it did mentioned to remove contact lens before removing makeup but I’m wearing them because I wanted to show how gentle this makeup remover can be.
It removes my makeup easily and almost instantly. For that one facial cotton, I was able to clean my entire face and lips. I know that sounds exaggerating but its a fact. I reckon it depends on how heavy your makeup is and the degree of cleanliness to see how many pieces of facial cotton you should use.
Here is a show of with makeup and without makeup. I know this makeup is not dramatic enough to show an obvious result but if you look closely, on the without makeup my brows look sparse, clean eye lid, lashes are not as thick and dark circles. That is the work of the makeup remover, pretty neat isn’t it?
I ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ this makeup remover! It’s doesn’t cleanse everything at one wipe but it definitely melt my makeup so gently and fast especially waterproof mascara. I tested with Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Waterproof mascara on my lashes and from my review you know its super tough to remove it. This makeup remover just make everything super easy! No tugging around the eye area, just wait and wipe gently.
For me who have oily skin, I would say this doesn’t leave any oil slick behind instead it makes my skin felt smooth and hydrated. For those who are scent-sensitive, it does have a very mild baby oil scent to it and sensitive skin types may not like it as it has alcohol as one of their ingredient. Since it doesn’t need a large amount to dispense, I think it’s pretty economical too. Since I have just ventured as a freelance makeup artist, this is very convenient for me to clean my brushes on the spot and remove any makeup mistake on my client.
