Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water 1

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.

Jump!

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer 0021

Garnier has some new wrinkle reducer out. Notice that snarky way I said that.

Sorry…I just don’t completely buy into all of Garnier’s claims and think they could do so much more with their products particularly when they are creating gems like their gel moisturizers. Guys, let’s see more of that good stuff!

This one is a 2 in 1 product that features a helix swirl of moisturizer plus the addition of serum. A single product to firm skin and hydrate while it’s doing the anti-aging bit.

Interestingly enough I’m seeing more and more products at my local drugstore that have testers out. That includes color cosmetics as well as skincare.

Mmm +1 for the drugstore!

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream

I’m quite excited about the new MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream!

This one is infused with MAC’s Charged Water Technology and promises to moisturize as it reduces dark circles, lines, and puffiness. I’m not relying on it completely do erase fine lines and aging woes but I am highly interested in how hydrating it is!

It’s on my list.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

We’re seeing a little action on the cleansing water front this season!

These are pretty popular in the Asia market so it doesn’t surprise me that the Western one is finally seeing more of them.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water is a no rinse cleanser with a soap-free formula that includes Hydrosenn+ which is an ingredient supposedly proven to relieved immediate hydration with a lasting effect. Hydrosenn+ plus is supposedly more effective than hyaluronic acid.

They had me at more effective than hyaluronic acid.

If you can’t stomach the price of MAC’s version this one is cheaper at $14 versus and bigger at 5 oz.

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser

Adding ALOT of the new MAC skincare goodies to my wishy list today!

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser a lightweight cleanser formulated with Super-Duo Charged Water technology. It removes all makeup (except waterproof and long-wearing types) with a wipe—no rinse-off required.

Those who are Asian Skincare junkies might see it as a Mandom Express type deal!

Basically, it translates as, the lazy girl’s guide to removing makeup quickly. Sadly, it isn’t as strong as Mandom’s version since it fails on the waterproof mascara you might be wearin’!

Damn!

But hey, I’m all for simple, fast, and easy on nights I just want to hit the sack.
