I love Lancome Bi-Facil with such a passion but damyum why is it so expensive? Ouchie! I used to use Sephora’s Eye Makeup Remover since it was cheap and easy to get however I’ve since moved on to Biore Makeup Remover for Eyes and Lips thanks to it being so easy to come by here in the US.
It’s produced for the Japanese market but it’s pretty much available in many Asian countries and the US in smaller Asian beauty shops plus it’s fairly cheap around here for around $6-$7.
Let’s take a look!
Like skincare, I have a constant rotation of SPF in my arsenal and I get asked alot, “What’s your favorite SPF?” I have several but the one I love the most is Biore Aqua Rich Watery Mousse SPF 50+ PA+++.
You absolutely, positively need it!
Off topic but….
Happiness is Elvis sitting at the bus stop discussing the philosophy of life with an old Asian man in chucks. CLICK!
Thanks to Beth, BPAL Barista for posting that TwitPic, it totally made my morning!
Happiness also comes in the form of cheap as day old chips cleansing oil!
Have you tried Biore Cleansing Oil?
Excuse me why I’ll rant at Biore for never releasing the cool stuff here in the US.
Biore WTH why can’t we have cool cleansers that are called Marshmallow Whip Face Wash? Not cool! We want these things too!
I happen to be a die hard fan of Kose Airy Whip, it was kinda my first introduction into the world of whippy, foamy, fluffy cleansers! I used to buy it by the case load and pimp it out on Musings and to my friends as an essential, must have quickie facial cleanser. Seriously, ask my friends, they’ll agree that they are tired hearing about Airy Whip.
Sorry, it’s just cool stuff.
Anything that looks like whipped cream in a can that can be used as a cleanser is the awesome to me. I’m easily excited about skincare.
That’s why Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash is so exciting, shhh, it’s actually taken the place of Airy Whip but DON’T mention that to Airy Whip as we’ve been friends for years and years, don’t wanna hurt its feelings eh? But seriously foaming plus a name with marshmallow in it?
I guess I’m a little weird but I follow the Kao Group very closely in Japan since I prefer their Biore releases over the ones that can be found in the US.
A recently Japanese release of new Biore Moisture Lotion intrigued me and I asked a friend to pick me some up. Shipping was a bit yak so I ended up telling her to skip it and hauled them from Adam at AdamBeauty (thanks Adam, love your shipping rates).
“Lotion” isn’t actually the term we’d use to describe what actually is toner. However, most Asian countries refer to toner as lotion so not to be confused here the Biore Moisture Lotion is, indeed, a toner.
