Etude House I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water Review

Etude House I'm Blooming Clear Cleansing Water

I’m unsure how many of you are cleansing water fans but Etude House I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water is a new one you want wish to explore.

I’m kinda on the fence about cleansing waters myself. I absolutely adore Mandom Cleansing Water but I honestly, can’t say that I use it as much as I thought I would. I think of Cleansing Water as an easier way to QUICKLY remove my makeup but not necessarily an end all way to do so. I prefer cleansing oil and a good foaming cleanser over water to be honest.

Let’s take a look at the I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water and see how it stands up.

I must admit so far the Etude House I’m Blooming Collection has proved disappointing for me. I thought perhaps the product would have a delicate floral scent of some sort but they are actually fragrance-free. Sad sigh.

Etude House I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water is supposedly 100% organic and natural containing a plant origin of surfactant.

This is a no wash cleansing solution so simply wet a cotton pad with the product and swipe across face and eyes to remove makeup. It does fairly ok removing face makeup but a little tugging is involved to fully remove eye makeup. It does rather poorly on waterproof mascara and heavier eyeshadow and eye makeup but when you’re in a hurry and just want to get to bed this is fairly good at removing makeup quickly enough! The best method for removing eyeshadow is to press a saturated cotton pad to your eye for a few minutes and wipe away. I do find this method a little irritating as there was some stinging I experienced with this cleansing water.

It doesn’t leave my face sticky and provides a dewy to the touch finish after use so skin is left soft not tight or dry after use.

Overall, I consider cleansing waters more of the lazy girl’s guide to quicker makeup removal. They have a place in my stash for the days I just can’t be bothered to go through a long regime of removing my makeup and just want to get to bed. Etude House I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water does the job and does it quickly however, eye stinging is a slight deal breaker for me.

If you’re looking for quick makeup removal this or any number of other cleansing waters are your bestest friend.

Tried this?

Which Cleansing Waters do you like?

    I use the Bioderma Crealine Cleansing Water on a regular basis – it actually removes eye makeup readily, I love it.

    Oh I heard their h20 line is really good! I’m really interested to try it as it looks like clear water but have heard a lot of people who uses it as make up remover. It’s a lot of product for what you pay too. I might try it as soon as I’m done with my biore cleansing wipes. I’m lazy and it removes mascara without irritating my eyes

    I use The Face Shop Rice Water Bright cleansing water. I love it! I use it in the morning just to remove the previous night’s skincare or on days I only have a smidgen of concealer on, though it does remove makeup I feel that oil cleanser give a deeper cleanse. The Rice Water Bright, I feel, does make my skin look fresher and brighter 🙂

    previoulsy i use hada labo cleansing water and i love it so much, and now i am using this (i’m blooming clear cleansing water). it’s a bit of dissapointing me, because i dont use a heavy make up (just cc cream and bb cream; and blusher), but i still can feel there is residue from my make up. however, i only got it yesterday, and i only use it once, so maybe i cant complain too much ><.my first impression of this is bad -_-'. maybe there will be some good things come out after finishing the whole bottle. thanks for the great review.

    Hi! I have been familiarizing myself with Korean beauty rituals 😉 and I have found that cleansing water is generally intended to be used after other cleansers (like the foam in this line) and before other leave on creams (like the moisturizer and the BB cream from this line).

    I am actually waiting right now for my order of this entire line to arriv eint he mail and I am sooo excited!

    by the way, I think you are super cute and I am happy that I found your blog xoxoxoxoxooxoxoxox
