Beauty Abroad: Bihada Ichizoku Makeup Remover Cream Review

Hello loves.

How’s life treating you? I’ve been a bit swamped this week but trying to struggle on through. Kinda looking forward to the weekend so I can get a little relaxin’ in! I think I wanna see Chloe with Amanda Seyfried on Friday, kinda a mature film for her eh?

Anyway on to the makeup! Or in this case cleanser.

If you’re seeking a gentle cleanser you may like Bihada Ichizoku Makeup Remover Cream.


Bihada Ichizoku Makeup Remover Cream is a manga inspired cream cleanser available in Japan. It’s a cream remover so it’s pretty gentle and hydrating on skin. Nothing harsh about this one as it’s a cream base so it’s pretty moisturizing and nourishing on your skin. It scented like soothing lavender so the smell is very fresh and clean.

One thing about cream cleansers I like is they don’t make my skin tight or dry but hate how they feel like they aren’t truly deep cleaning my face. For a basic cleanser, on days I don’t have a face full of makeup, this works perfectly great. However, on the days my makeup is heavier I feel like I need something that can clean a little deeper and work at removing left over waterproof mascara that my eye makeup remover fails to get at.

Overall, it’s packaging appeals to me most and the formula is nice enough for lighter clean up jobs but I definitely feel like my oil cleansers do a way better job of deep cleansing my face. Great for days I’m not wearing a face full of makeup or just want to do a quick clean up sans a dry, tight face after use.

Very nice particularly if you’re sensitive to many cleansers.

You can purchase from YesStyle however it’s marked up to $20. Quite expensive. I suggest searching around as you should be able to find it for less.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Yesstyle is daylight robbery! I was so shocked by how much they were selling MBD masks for! Anyway i’m so glad you reviewed this. The bottle actually says ‘Cleansing Gel’ so I assumed it was a gel – turns out it’s a cream that I totally, totally hate! So i’m glad you reviewed it for me otherwise I would’ve had one product that I wouldn’t use. Also I hate the smell of lavender… close call!

    I use this with the foaming facial cleanser. LOVE IT. I have very sensitive break out prone skin. The chamomile sooths and the lavender and rose oil work double as being antibacterial. I only wear light make up, so it works great for me. Except if I wear my KISS ME Heroine Make mascara.

    Yep, I saw their BB cream last week. Didn’t buy it, though, because I had ordered Missha’s on the net and the most Japanese colours are too dark for me. The shop assistant put many creams on my face, and the only one light enough only had LSF 15, so I bought the Kosé LSF 50 lotion and use it under my normal make-up for now.

    Have you tried the foaming cleanser? It’s lovely, I actually prefered to this one but they’re both lovely 🙂 Also is that how much yesstyle charged you? Geez…
