Meet my new make-up remover!! *excited....This is probably one of god-sent item to girls, really...i mean it. Bifesta is a Japanese brand that specializes in make-up removers...only make-up removers!! They actually have two different categories of make-up removers, non-rinse and rinse-off, apparently i got the non-rinse cleansing lotion (Sebum) which is meant for oily skin. They also have non-rinse cleansing lotion meant for dry skin, mature skin and even one for dull-looking skin.
The Cleansing Lotion (Sebum) is a water-based make-up remover,containing green extracts for pore tightening. It claims to be as effective as oil cleansers and gentle to skin, allowing make-up to be removed without scrubbing. It is also fragrance-free, colouring-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free and hypoallergenic, so this is really suitable for individuals with oily, sensitive skin.
The best-selling point is the non-rinse function, just pump onto a cotton pad, swipe and you're ready for bed. Why?....Because this make-up remover not only just removes your make-up, it also tones your skin as well, allowing you to skip all the washing and reapplication of your skincare regime!! If this is not god-sent, i don't know what it is.....
Other than the non-rinse function, this make-up remover also contains Absorbent Hyaluronic Acid (yea... the same thing that's in all Hada Labo's products...ok maybe slightly different), to keep your skin moisturized even after rinsing the make-up remover off.
They do not recommend using facial cleansers after the make-up remover, as it'll probably negate the properties of the Absorbent Hyaluronic Acid. For those who really want to double cleanse, they suggested rinsing with only water. If it is just one night, i would appreciate going to bed without rinsing, but no way am i going to bed everyday without my skincare regime. So i usually just rinse with water before applying my usual skincare regime.
Price-wise, this make-up remover is pretty affordable at SGD 16.90 for 300ml, and it is worth your penny when you think about how convenient your nights can get with this make-up remover. One downside is that, it gets used up pretty quickly, so be prepared that you'll have to get another soon. They are available at Watsons and Guadians.
Hope this post helps, thanks for reading!!
