HadaLabo is an extremely popular skincare collection in Japan. The products are well known for containing hyaluronic acid which is an excellent ingredient for hydrating skin as well as allowing your skin to retain more moisture.
I’m not sure how effective it is having such an ingredient in your cleanser but the HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover is one of my favorite makeup removers.

Come on out lazy girls! You know you’re out there. Sleeping in your makeup, too lazy when you get home to remove it, for shame! Your mum’s should know what you’ve been up too. Insert waggling finger here.
Goodie for you that cleansing waters are on trend at the moment and everyone and their mother too is introducing one. MAC has one, Sephora, and on the higher end of the playing field, the new NARS Makeup Removing Water. That sounds so pro right? It’s not NARS Cleansing Water its NARS Makeup Removing Water. Posh!
This soap-free, oil-free, and alcohol-free water promises removes face makeup and tones the skin. Thank you NARS for not promising to remove our waterproof mascara. Bless your heart. Nothing is more annoying than a brand of cleansing water that promises to be your end all to removing makeup.
Cleansing Waters, for some odd reason or another, seem to be really trending at the moment. I’ve no idea why these are suddenly popping up but everyone seems to have one. NARS, Sephora, and MAC all recently introduced one.
I think they are slightly confusing though so here’s just a brief recap….
I like to call ‘em lazy girl’s guide to removing makeup. They are simply a liquid cleanser so to use them you soak some facial cotton, a cotton pad, or ball with the cleanser and swipe off your makeup. Done. No need to rinse with water, nothing else required! It removes your makeup in a flash. Most of these cleansing waters do a great job at removing waterproof mascara but they are a simple solution for removing makeup if you’re a minimalist or fantastic for the nights you just want to fall into bed. See? Lazy girl’s makeup remover!
Let’s take a look at MAC Charged Water Cleanser.
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.
