My Top 5 Makeup Removers

18 Feb

I’ve been doing reviews since this year has started. Honestly, I’m already getting tired of it. So we’ll do the Top 5 series this week. I’ve tried a lot of makeup removers since I got into skin care. I have extremely oily and sensitive skin that’s prone to breakouts. I’m skeptical to use new products. Most of them are okay and some became my favorite. For the past six years, here are the products I’d gladly repurchase.


Skinlite Make-up Cleansing Tissues

I’m using this for 2 years now since I couldn’t find Purederm’s Acne Cleansing Wipes. It has green tea, chamomile, sage,ย  lavender, rosemary, aloe, ginseng and allantoin for cleansing. Its size, texture and performance are the same with Purederm’s. No breakouts too. I usually get mine in the beauty section of Landmark Makati. 30 sheets for Php 89


Etude House Every Month Cleansing Tissues

This has many cleansing ingredients too. It’s packed withย broccoli, tea tree, garlic, camellia leaf, apple, rice bran, aloe, avocado, blueberry, oatmeal, spinach, cucumber, walnut & wine extracts. What I like most about itย is its size. It’s bigger compared to other makeup wipes. One sheet is actually big for my full face makeup. I could get the most out of it and remove everything. Available at your local Etude House branches and kiosks. 15 sheets for Php 128 / 50 sheets for Php 248


Purederm Acne-Cleansing Wipes

I think this is phased out already but this was my first ever favorite. The cloths are moist enough to remove my full face makeup. It had no specific scent in my opinion. I was using this when I had many breakouts. It did not aggravate my acne. I remember this was under 100 pesos too.


Loreal Refreshing Micellar Water

My first micellar water. It has minimal ingredients. It really feels refreshing while you’re wiping off makeup. It feels like I’ve already washed my face. No sticky feeling. It says no need to rinse but I still proceed to my face wash and other steps because we can’t skip those. I didn’t break out while using this. This is good for 6 months use after opening. 250ml for Php 225


Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil – Moisture

Cleansing oils are for heavy duty makeup. I’ve only used one and it’s from Etude House. I followed the instructions after I posted my full review on this. The results were better. My makeup melted away plus it foams up when rinsed with water. It added moisture to my skin. A great prep step especially if you’re using a drying face wash. Little goes a long way. It has a light lemon scent. It did not cause breakouts. 185ml for Php 848

September 2014 Haul

24 Sep

Hello ladies. Today is a shopping and derma day for me. I went to my dermatologist and had injections on my 8 huge pimples. I had a major breakout again this month because of stress and overthinking. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Anyway, let’s start! ๐Ÿ™‚

haul

1. Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam Moist – PHP 428
I wanted a new facial wash because I think my facial wash is not doing its job, my skin feels heavy. I remove my all-day makeup with cleansing tissues before I use facial wash. I found out that baking powder is a good cleanser. The normal version causes dryness even if you have oily skin so I chose this version to maintain the moisture of my skin. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. Etude House Dear Darling Tint in Red – PHP 248
I dont know why I grabbed this. My impulsive buying skill is attacking me again. Haha. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. VMV Hypoallergenics Id Monolaurin Gel – PHP 795
I’ve been wanting to buy this for so long. I want to buy the 50ml bottle because I want to try it out and see if it will work. Unfortunately it’s always out of stock so I bought the full size instead. Let’s see if this will work well for me. ๐Ÿ˜€

4. Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues – PHP 119
These are in Lavender and Cucumber. It’s 119 for a total of 60 sheets. Been repurchasing this because it’s affordable. Im just waiting for the right time to review this. ๐Ÿ˜›

5. Etude House Pearl Aura Brightening Essence (sample) – Freebie
This sample is a GWP for every 500 worth of purchase. I will do a first impression post for this.

July 2014 Mini Haul

19 Jul

Im back! Im gonna post my reviews about these products after using them for 2 to 4 weeks.

Unfortunately, LUSH Fresh Farmacy doesnt really work on my skin anymore unlike before. I need to find something that has a great effect like what Fresh Farmacy did before. I also need a good toner for acne prone skin because this semester is stressful. I only use Celeteque Hydration Toner during vacations since I use little to no makeup at all.

I repurchased Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation and Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues. I feel uncomfortable when I do not double cleanse (makeup remover then facial wash)

1. VMV Hypoallergenics Red Better Spot Corrector – PHP 450 approx $10
2. Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues (30 sheets each) – PHP 119 for 2 packs approx $2.76
3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Foundation – PHP 99.75 approx $2.30
4. Belo AcnePro Gel Face Wash – PHP 99.75 approx $2.31
5. Belo AcnePro Treatment Toner – PHP 79.00 approx $1.83

Purederm Acne Wash Cleansing Tissues review

10 Aug

I was going to buy either Etude House or The Face Shop’s cleansing tissues but my budget was only 100 pesos. Their tissues worth 98 and 95 pesos are out of stock. I have to stick to my budget because I’m saving up for BIGBANG’s Alive Tour. I know Watsons have different skincare products that are affordable so I went there and bought this. This is my first time to use a Purederm product. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pros:

  • Affordable. It costs 99.75 pesos only for 30 sheets
  • Removes makeup
  • Contains anti-acne ingredients
  • Available at all Watsons branches. I ย don’t know if this is available at other stores.
  • Did not cause breakouts/pimples
  • The packaging, it comes with a box. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cons:

  • The scent is strong for me
