Biore Cleansing Water

My number 1 choice of makeup remover is still the Biore line. I like their makeup wipes, the oil and now the water. It’s basically just water that can so call remove waterproof mascara. How well? Pretty alright. I don’t really use heavy makeup. I don’t have super hard to remove mascara, so this works well on me. It cleanse the skin and remove most trace of makeup. 

 

Actually, what I like to do is use a cleansing wipe to remove the makeup then use this and cotton to remove whatever is left. If not, I have to use about 4 cotton pads to roughly remove all makeup. 

The Biore one as compare to the rest so far is that, this has a snout of a pump. So it’s actually easier to get the product out. If press too hard, it can get messy but I mean you just learn to use it along the way. 

So overall, it is not bad. The price point is also ok. Bought mine at $15.90 for a 300ml bottle. I mean for all I know they only have it in one size. So yea, not bad. 

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

Fluer loves this so I had to try it. I like it cause it has a pump. Plus the product will pool up at the base of the pump thingy. It does well removing all trace of makeup. It has a very strong scent. I can’t really put a finger of what it smells like, but it’s scented. Plus the more I use this the more I realized how sticky this actually feels. It has a residue. So that’s the downside of this. Other than that, the water is really good. The packaging is also nice. 

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water

This is quite messy to get the product out. If you tilt it, mess! If you cover it with a pad, a bit will come out. Then you squeeze the bottle, mess! So gentle hands is needed for this baby. It’s a good product. Remove makeup well. Seems quite gentle. But I still prefer the Garnier by a bit more. This also has a slight scent to it. Like a bit alcohol scent. 

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

 
I’m on a micellar water run. I want to try them all. So I been trying out the Garnier one. And I do like it. It removes makeup very well. It has no pump but it easily disperse out the water. Also good cause can use cotton bud to get a bit of water without it spilling all over. 400ml = 200 uses. Not sure about that as a full face of makeup, I have to use about 5 cotton pads. 

It’s slightly more soapy but it doesn’t feel like it has soap. It’s just on the pad you can see the soap, that foam when soap foam up. Does that make sense? But Ya that is the difference between this and Bioderma or others that I’d try. 

For 400ml, less than £5, it’s two thumbs up.  

Bioderma Sébium H2O – Combination or Oily

I’m not a fan of the Micelle Solution. Now I tried the green one which is for oily skin. And I still do not like it. This break me out. So weird right? It’s worse than the pink one. This one just for cleanse and purify. Doesn’t state that it removes makeup.
The idea of these magic water are great. Especially this green one as it’s for clear matte complexion. Who doesn’t want that? So I don’t know why it breaks me out. Lucky I just got the samples. Plus I really hate the scent. Gives a sour scent when react with my skin. You know, maybe there is something wrong with me skin after all.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O – Sensitive

Do you know there are 3 version of Bioderma? The blue, green and the red one. I am not sure, but that’s what I know. I am hopeless.

Anyway this is the red one which is for sensitive skin. At first you heard what Bioderma can be use for, but most people just use it to remove their makeup. I don’t think it is a miracle water to be honest, cause it is just act like water to me. It does remove my makeup, but I don’t see what the big wow factor is all about. I guess when you make a mistake using your eyeshadow, it’s good to use Bioderma as using makeup remover may remove the other part of your makeup. That’s the only good thing I can think of for Bioderma. Other than that, I don’t think its worth the money. Unless I’m in French, I probably wouldn’t buy it again.

My Night Time Routine

Happy new year everyone. I will start this year with a post on my night time skin care regime.
daiso makeup remover
I will start with makeup wipes. I bought this in Daiso. Daiso has so many different type of makeup wipes and I will eventually try them all. For $2 I start with this wipes. It kind of remind me of wet tissues. It is really wet, so if you use this in air con room, it’s really nice and cooling. The wetness is good for removing makeup including waterproof mascara. I really like that, unlike wet tissues. It comes in 30 sheet per box, really nice for a monthly wipes.

Then I will wash my face with Cle De Peau Creme Demaquillante, which is basically a cleansing cream. I really like it. It removes makeup really well. If I forgot to use the wipes, I will just use this and it removes my makeup just as well. This doesn’t hurt my eyes, so it’s really good to get rid of waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin soft without needing to use actual cleanser.
nuxe
After brushing my teeth and stuff, I will use Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals to tone my skin. This smells amazing. The rose is not that strong, but rather lovely. It feels nice on the face. Very gentle and refreshing.

I will use Nuxe 24h Soothing and Moisturizing Cream next if I am super tired. But most of the time I will use this after eye cream. This moisturizer is indeed very soothing. It has this scent that calm you. At first I don’t really like it, but eventually I fell in love. It is thick but blend really easily. I like that. It’s not overly oily on the face, and it’s great for night time as when I wake up, my face will be really refresh. The moisture is all absorb into the skin.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair was my night serum. The first time I use this, I woke up with a super awesome glowing skin. It lasted only a day as the next day my skin is back to normal. And eventually I started breaking out around the forehead and cheek. After much analysis I figured this was the culprit. True enough. Though it was only a sample, I felt I had to finish it. So I just use it once a week. Except on that first day, I don’t think I see a difference with my skin. So this is a no for me, but I know many people love it. Oh the scent is also quite off putting. Exactly of herbal scent, the unpleasant kind.

eye cream
Estée Lauder Re-nutria Eye Creme is used after serum. This is really rich and only a tiny amount is needed each time. I was frustrated with my black under eye, I used to lather this on. I then found out milia was growing. Upon research I found out that I used too much eye cream. And so I found that this is a really good rich eye cream. This is 15ml and will last forever, but the lifespan of eye cream is 6 months and its in a container so better follow that guideline.

So cleanse, tone, serum and moisturize, the next step is to use mask. Those sheet masks at least.

I had been using Sexy Look Intensive Firming Duo Lifting. As you can see, the hole for the eye is rather tiny. At least the right one is. It is extremely uncomfortable. I don’t have a problem with the blue one. And all the masks in the box is the same. So maybe I got a bad box or it’s like that. This mask is moisturizing even though I only leave it on for awhile, not the full 15 minutes. So that’s about it.

After the mask, I will use acne cream if I have spots and lastly I will apply a lip balm.
