Making up to prettify yourself is one of girls’ greatest interest and hobby! Who doesn’t want to look gorgeous right? Assuming you don’t overdo it.
But what is even more important besides covering, concealing and enhancing is how your actual real skin feels and looks like.
It is horrendous to know that some girls do not remove their make-up properly or worse still, leave it on overnight because they are lazy or drunk.
No matter how bad I couldn’t hold my liquor for that night, I have always made sure that I get my make-up removed. Never have I slept with my make-up on due to laziness or because I’m drunk. Even with the dizzy spells and nauseating moments, I would still crawl to my beauty corner to remove my make-up thoroughly and cleanse my face with the facial foam, apply toner and then slap on moisturiser before I fly to bed.
The recent incident whereby I got drunk (New Year’s Day, what do you expect!), I managed to remove my make-up and cleansed my face as per normal but shockingly, I had actually forgot to remove my contact lens! Yes, I actually slept with them on for several hours before I got disturbed by my annoying full bladder.
Haha, speaks volume as to how I understand the importance of removing your make-up, no?
I have been using Loreal’s Cleansing Milk to remove my face make-up and Cyber Colours for eye make-up.
It gets quite messy because you are required to pour few drops onto your fingertips and slowly apply them in a circular motion, like how you would cleanse your face with a facial cleanser. After that, you then need to wipe them off thoroughly with a cotton pad. For my eye make-up, I would use a cotton bud filled with a drop of Cyber Colours make-up remover and then wipe off any eyeliner, mascara whatsoever with it.
I have always been skeptical about cleansing sheets due to two reasons.
Firstly, not removing your make-up thoroughly causes clogged pores which cause blemishes.
Secondly, using that to wipe your eyelid areas seem a little too rough on those delicate babies (but who am I kidding? I’ve always been so rough on my skin… =x)
Despite that, after knowing how this new improved version is highly raved by many girls, I decided to get 1 for myself.
The old version looks like this :
And the new version looks like this :
When I first saw the package, I was quite shocked and disappointed at the same time because I was actually expecting it to be much bigger. But then again, it doesn’t bother me now.
If you saw the video by Miyake, QiuQiu and XiaXue, I’m actually not as bothered about how many times do I have to wipe to get my make-up removed completely. It doesn’t matter to me.
I am more concerned if these sheets would do a clean job (pun intended).
After trying it several times now, here’s my review.
- Fresh scent
- Cleaning sheet doesnt dry out easily
- Helps to remove make-up thoroughly – psst, you can test it by cleaning your whole face twice to see if there are any residue left.
- Easy to use with less hassle compared to cleansing lotions/oil
- May have to wipe a few times, especially on the eye areas but I think that’s because of the residue of the eye lash glue.
- Need to be extra careful when wiping the eye areas due to delicate skin.
The aftermath after a few wipes :
From this (a typical make-up day – just foundation, eyeliner, falsies, blusher, concealer, white shimmery eyeliner and eyebrow pencil) :

They do sell them in packets too for refills 🙂

Overall rating :
Recently, I also bought another cleansing sheets but from Nivea because the Guardian I patronised, had their Biore ones sold out!
Will be reviewing about it soon and drawing a comparison to help you beauty junkies gauge which is more value for money! 🙂
