Sponsored Review: Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover

Hi everybody!

After a day of wearing makeup, I honestly look forward to removing them at the end of the day so that I can be bare-faced again. I know it's weird but let me explain. As much as I love the way makeup enhances my facial features, I also acknowledge that my skin needs to 'breathe'. That's also why I prefer to be bare-faced and a good makeup remover is very essential in making my face feel clean again.

I'm a fan of rinse-off makeup removers and due to my oily, acne-prone skin type, I try to use makeup removers that are water-based or gel-based so that they can clean off impurities without clogging my pores. I was recently introduced to a makeup remover that suits my skin to a tee and it was none other than the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover.

I've actually used Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover before and had a very good impression of it. This makeup remover that I received was the latest version with a improved formula and I couldn't wait to try it.

This is personal but I really adore the pump bottle design, girly pink packaging and the mild fragrance. <3

As the name suggests, the texture of this makeup remover is akin to jelly with a smooth and light consistency.

In terms of texture, it wasn't exactly a love at first sight for me because it reminded me of cleansing oil and it did felt oily when I applied it on my face.

That said, it has an amazing ability to remove all makeup traces and impurities because my skin felt spanking clean after rinsing. Besides, even though it felt oily when I was applying the makeup remover on my face, it did not leave behind any sticky or greasy sensation after wash. Thumbs up for that!

Oh yes, this makeup remover also contains 40% more moisturizing essence so it ensures that your skin remains hydrated while deeply cleansed. You need not worry about drying out your skin after cleansing. And it's suitable for all skin types so for people with problematic or sensitive skin, you can rejoice!

Using this makeup remover is really simple and it ensures that your makeup comes off in a jiffy.

All you have to do is pump some makeup remover (i.e. 2 to 3 pumps) onto clean, dry hands and massage it around your face and eye area. Proceed to rinse with water, wipe your face dry and voila! You've got a spanking clean face.

In the picture above, I did a test on some makeup that I've applied on the back of my hand. Specifically, I've got a BB Cream, 3 eyeshadows, 1 black eyeliner and a lipstick swatched on my hand. Upon applying the makeup remover, I noticed that it was quick to smudge and dissolve the makeup. The eyeliner needed a bit more rubbing before it smudged but all was good eventually.

When I rinsed the makeup off and wiped my hand dry, my hand was clean and looked brighter than before. How incredible! I'm sold - just take my money already.

Are you sold too?

The Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover retails at $24.90 for a 230ml bottle and can be found conveniently at leading supermarkets, pharmacies and departmental stores.
