The first thing that I do when I get home, after taking off my shoes and putting my bag away, is removing my makeup. I do realize my skin needs to breathe after being “tortured” for 12 hours, or maybe longer than that. The only chance for my skin to take a breather is at night, so even when I postpone my bath time to midnight, I don’t compromise when it comes to cleaning my face. I just have to do it right away.
I bet most of you already know, I’m in love with Biore. Since I’ve been using new products from Biore , I think it’s time that I show you a little bit of my new cleansing routine.
1. Biore Makeup Remover for Eye & Lip (IDR 86,500) – Eyes is always the first one to be cleansed *at least, for me* Since I have sensitive eyes, I can’t use regular makeup remover, because no matter how gentle they’ve claimed to be, it stings. I used to use baby oil to remove my eye makeup. The only thing with baby oil that it bothers me when the bottle starts to feel sticky-when I pour it on the cotton pad, some oil would leak. Not to mention, my eyes would be oily afterwards. When I found out that Biore launched their Makeup Remover for Eye & Lip, I couldn’t resist to try one. It feels very gentle on my eyes, and it doesn’t leave that much oil on my eyelids. I LOVE it. It claims to dissolve thick layer of waterproof mascara without leaving an oily residue. It also contains Hyaluronic acid that helps to maintain moisture of the eyes and lips area. All I have to do is shake the bottle, pour enough amount on a cotton pad, and swipe it gently around my eyes or lips. This is my new staple item.
2. Biore Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil Sheet (IDR 100,000, and the Refill retails for IDR 86,500) – I feel like I won’t get a truly cleansed face if I wash my full makeup face right away. I’ve used cleansing milk on cotton pad to help me wipe out my makeup, but since makeup tissue remover came to Indonesia, I’ve been using it in my routine. It’s easier and more practical. Last month, Deszell and I went to Guardian Plaza Indonesia. At that time Deszell bought Biore Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil Sheet and said this product works great, so I bought one as well. And I am so happy to know that now it comes in a box! It has 40 sheets that can last for a month and I can buy the refill later. This is a perfect product at home because the “sachet” version only contains 10 sheets and in my opinion only perfect for travel or to bring with everyday because of its small packaging.
3. Biore Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil (IDR 86,500) – Now, this product is a bit of a challenge for me. To be honest, I’m not fond of the idea using OIL to cleanse my skin. I have sensitive skin at the moment and it feels like I don’t need to put more oil onto my skin. But since I’ve decided to use other makeup remover products from Biore, I figured why not just try this cleansing oil? When my skin was flawless back in junior and high school, I used Biore products for years and my skin had no problem. Why not now? After I massage this cleansing oil on my face (3 to 4 pumps), I use a sponge that has been soaked in warm water to wipe it all, and then rinse it off with water. I think I’ll continue using this product. I have tried cleansing oil from other brands and Biore Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil is gentler on my skin, it’s not as oily as I’ve previously imagined, and it has no scent that bothers me which is another plus. I use it after I cleanse my face with the cleansing oil sheet, or using it on its own also does for the job.
I only have one question: Where’s your toner, Biore?
Okay, I know that toner is part of skincare products and not a makeup remover, but you know, I also use toner to check whether or not I’ve thoroughly cleansed my face. Overall, I’m happy with these three and will definitely repurchase them!
Have you tried one of these? What do you think, ladies?
