Sephora – Express Cleansing Wipes

wpid-collage_20150807211030965_20150807211202322.jpgI am in this posting mode to catch up on past slacks (yes, been horribly busy at work and coping with flu bug that hit me for a week, followed by a nasty bout of sinusitis which I am still nursing as I type. Well, busy or ill, we need to still make sure we take care of our skin so here I am sharing another review on the Sephora Express Cleansing Wipes.

About this Product

This is another Sephora disposable product that I find it very handy and convenient to use. The wipe is thick and moist, and cleans my face in just 1 to 2 sheets. I bring this around with me when I have to refresh my make up, when I run out of makeup removers, or when I have to wear make up on business trips (better than to bring along a big bottle of makeup remover and risk having it leaked in my luggage!).  Its been my trusty makeup remover when I travel overseas – yeah!

I tried to include a picture of the ingredient’s list but I think its rather small to see for now.

Using this Product

Open the packet and just draw out any number of towels/wipes that you need! Its that simple! My skin did not break out or develop any rash (though if you do, please stop and consult your doctor). It cleans off both my liquid and mineral foundation just as well, and waterproof eye makeup. I have also used this to wipe off sunscreen on my entire body when I had to be outdoors most of the time. Good product!

I usually follow up with a double cleanse of my face though I do recall using it on its own once (coz I was so tired) and went straight to bed. My skin remains good! You can fold the wipes into triangles and try to remove your eyeliners and it will work as well. Just that the product might be a bit stingy if it gets into your eyes.

There are of course other makeup remover wipes out there. I have tried Botanicals and Neutrogena previously but I still find this product most effective for me.  I would recommend using this with the Sephora Targeted Eye Remover Swabs if you wear eye liners.

Where to Buy this Product

At Sephora! Its one of their house brands.

Check them out and let me know what you think! 🙂

Sephora – Targeted Eye Remover Swabs

wpid-collage_20150807214213790_20150807214336209.jpgI do not wear a lot of eye makeup most of the time, but if you read my earlier posts, you’ll notice I do love Clio Kill Brown and Kill Black liquid eye liner, its Shadow Pencil and Gelpresso. These are long lasting, waterproof, eye products that stays for at least 6 to 8 hours a day, and I have also previously mentioned in my post that Bioderma may not be able to remove them as easily. So here I am reviewing the disposable and highly convenient swaps that would, definitely, help you remove that thin eye liner that is so close to your lash line, and to enable you to have quick fixes to remove that accidental stroke of liner or shadow around your eyes!

About the Product

I love Sephora’s house brands, in particular its cleansing products such as Triple Cleansing Water and wipes. They are effective, hydrating and convenient. In fact, second washes are not required! This particular product is interesting because the cleansing solution is already packed in the plastic tubing of the cotton swap. All you have to do is to break at the point where you see the blue line, and the cleansing solution will soak through the cotton swap on the other end. The product is gentle and moisturizing and cleans effectively and quickly. You can check out the ingredient’s list which I’ve shown in the picture in this blog.

Using the Product

Take out a swap, break at the blue line and let the solution soak the cotton swap at the opposite end. Run the soaked cotton swap over the liners, shadows, little mistakes you make and voila! You can move on! There is no need to wipe the same spot with water etc. This product does not cause outbreaks (I didn’t experience any irritation or allergies etc), and doesn’t sting. The solution feels like one of those oil-water removers that you would have bought for eye and lip makeup remover.

Where to Buy the Product

Only at Sephora! Of course, a cheaper option is to dip your cotton swaps into the oil-water eye and lip makeup removers, but I find this a lot more convenient and fuss free. Especially if you need to have a quick refresh of your eye make up!

Clio – Pro Makeup Lip & Eye Remover (Perfect & Easy Cleansing)

Clio Pro Makeup Lip and Eye Remover.jpgI bought this product when it was on sale back in June 2014. Clio was having a buy two for the price of one. I had a quick swipe and it went straight into my shopping basket.

About the Product

Those of you who have used Clio’s Kill Bill or Gelpresso lines will be familiar with this brand. Its just that this makeup remover could not be found in Singapore. This is one of those oil and water type of make up remover, but what is amazing is that it has a pleasant scent, and it does wipe off the Clio waterproofs very well. I’ve even use it to remove my lipsticks and they come of clean, without drying my lips. One thing to note though, due to the packaging of this product, you may not realise that you have to shake the bottle to mix the contents before you just pumping out the product onto your cotton pads.

Using the Product

Shake the bottle, and pump it into your cotton pad. For removing eye shadows and eye liners, gently lay the wet cotton pad on your eyes for a few seconds and then swipe lightly. Tadah! The shadows and eye liners come off! If you want to be absolutely sure you’ve removed the liners (esp those with glitters), you can fold into a corner, and run it lightly along your eye lines, until your cotton pads do not pick up anymore residues. To remove your lipstick, wet your cotton pad with the product and then lay it over your lips gently. Give it a few seconds before you lightly wipe your lips with the cotton pad. Again, you can fold the cotton pad into corners to run it around the edges of your lips (esp if you like lip pencils or you are prone to outbreaks if you do not remove your lipsticks properly).

Where to Buy the Product

I like this product and I will buy more if I run out! I can’t find this in Singapore, but if you have Club Clio around your town or city, you’ll have a much better chance to find this product in the stores. Koreadepart carries something similar but its called Waterproof Makeup Lip & Eye Remover.

Sephora – Ultimate Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover

image

The Sephora Ultimate Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover was an unplanned purchase. I thought I should review it after use, especially of anyone of you share similar woes with removing lipstick.

About the Product
This Sephora Ultimate Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover claims to be super efficient in removing all kinds of lipstick, even the most long lasting one.  The texture of the product is gel like (as you can see in the picture) and is easy to use. Can hardly tell whether there is oil in the product by touching with your finger tips.

The ingredients of the product are listed in the picture embedded in this post. From Sephora website, this product is without Parabens (Yay!)

Using the Product
The instruction on the box said to apply the product on the lips and leave it for 30 seconds before removing it with the lipstick. I had tested this product with my Karen Murrell Sandstorm lipstick and it seems to be able to remove the lipstick efficiently without traces. The lips felt smooth and somewhat hydrated after wiping off the product and the lipstick, although I would have preferred if its even more hydrating. 🙂

As I do not own a long wearing lipstick, I will leave it to you, my readers, to try this product out and share your views with me. 🙂

Where to Buy the Product
I purchased this at the Sephora located at Tampines One, Singapore.
