I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.
Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.
I’m pretty much a creature of habit and I never, ever go to bed with makeup on. My evening routine is like a three ring circus for removing my makeup and getting my skin ready for bed. I imagine they could make a reality tv show out of this regime, it’s serious shiz.
Moral of the story is I rarely, like never, go off this routine because I picture hell freezing over, skies falling, and the Red Sea parting if I did go off it.
I do have to brace myself for late nights now though as even though I promised myself I would not get involved with the latest Call of Duty release my good friend Angel who owns a gaming shop in Flushing sent me over a copy yesterday and things went down the hill fast. I could already feel hours of my life being chipped away…Angel should be shot down.
(P.S. Avoid the box edition and get the PS3 or XBOX version, way smoother play)
Last night we played for hours straight with brief Twitter updates and no food, drink, or pee breaks inbetween…by chance, did you hear on the news if the skies fell last night?
Needless to say this amount of gaming means you just wanna fall into bed after it without indulging in your normal makeup removal and nightly skin regime.
Bad, bad, bad…but at least I had a packet of Maybelline Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes laying around!
Sigh it’s such sadness we don’t get nearly half the Biore Collection here in the US. The Eastern market features a range of not only skincare but even shower gels and soaps….
Damn shame we get around 7 or 8 products and that’s about it.
Biore Make-Up Remover Gel is one product you won’t find in drugstores here in the US but you might want to track it down if you have a larger Asian community in your city.
Sensitive girls rejoice!
Lumene has Sensitive Touch Gentle Cleansing Wipes for removing your makeup. No worries those who aren’t sensitive can still make use of these wipes.
Let’s take a peek!
I dunno if I’m lacking in my underarm care because up until now I’ve never actually had a specific wash just for my pits. How about you? Shower Gel or soap has always worked perfectly fine for me…
But Bison Wakilala Underarm Cleanser proclaims I’m doing it wrong!
Wakilala is a Japanese cleaner that was created exclusively for cleansing under your arms…
Beauty Most Unusual maybe?
