Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover Review

Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover is a newly launched (few months now) jelly-style makeup remover that resembles a cleansing oil.

If you’re not a big fan of cleansing oils or you’re a bit of afraid of them (you shouldn’t be they are fab), Aqua Jelly might be for you!

This is a lightly fragranced makeup remover with a jelly-like texture that acts like a cleansing oil of sorts. Although it has some of the same application and removal techniques as an oil cleanser that’s where the similarities end.

You’ll apply this on a dry face full of makeup and gently massage it on. After you’ve massaged an equate amount on you can rinse with lukewarm water. It basically removes most makeup quickly, easily, and efficiently. That includes mascara and eye makeup if you like although I do prefer removing those with an oil based eye makeup remover prior to cleansing.

The texture is a thicker, gel-like formula which has a cool feel on skin. It doesn’t emulsify (turn milky) upon contact with skin and merely washes clean away.

I think it does a fabulous job tackling makeup remover and works just as good as an cleansing oil. Plus the formula seems to be very gentle on my skin never over stripping it or leaving it feeling dry and tight after use.

This one is a fabulous alternative to cleansing oil!

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.

    I would so try more asian beauty, but I’ve got to see a full ingredient list before buying something!

    I’ll have to go to the Asian shops in my area looking for this…I need something to remove waterproof mascara in preparation for when it rains…I’ve been able to get away with wearing washable mascara for the time being, but I am not sure if I’ll be so lucky when it’s wet out.

    Also I need something a little more heavy-duty than my face wash for the makeup itself anyway…waterproof or not…but I can’t stand cleansing oil and I kinda want something I can use in the shower.

      I couldn’t find this at any of the Asian markets :/, I’ll have to get it through eBay later. In the meantime I got Mu Tenka cleansing milk to try :). I use the Mu Tenka foaming cleanser already, and I know I like it. Nice and mild/moist.

    I have also brought this and used a few times, I prefer my shu cleansing oil

    It does pretty good job in removing my makeup, including the eye makeup…..just I dun like its texture

  • kitten

    i don’t like using oils since i have super oily skin but this one sounds fab, adding to my ebay cart:)

  • Angela

    This sounds similar to a product by Marcelle (in Canada). It’s a bit ‘interesting’ rubbing a gel into your eyes, but I find it to be pretty gentle and effective. The Marcelle version has a lash-building something or other in it so I don’t think it’s for the entire face 🙂
    Love your site!

  • Tiffany Martin

    I wanted something like this that was a cleanser (I mean the asian skincare style makeup-removing step) but not an oil cleanser. This looks like a must-have, thanks for reviewing!!
