Review: Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover + Give-away!

sponsored advertorial
what's the most important step of skincare for you?

for me, makeup removing is the number one most important step of my skincare every night, and no matter how tired i am, i never never fail to remove my makeup! 

it's so surprising to hear that there are girls who don't use a proper makeup remover at night before cleansing, or worse still, don't even bother to cleanse their face at night! 

have you heard about the horrifying incident of this Korean girl who wanted to look "perfect" all the time, and did not remove her makeup for TWO years? O_O and when she was finally persuaded by her mother and dermatologists to remove her makeup, a skin check revealed that her skin had aged to that of a 40-year old, which is twice her real age!

horror stories aside, i'm sure all of you already know the importance of makeup removal! when you do not remove your makeup, the dirt, oil, and make up accumulated in the day all gets clogged into your pores! this can lead to break outs and enlarged pores and blackheads and blemishes and just about every kind of skin problem known to mankind... you MUST MUST MUST remove your makeup every night!

now that you've got the importance of makeup removing drilled into your head, here's what i have to share! i got to try Biore's new Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover which features a brand new JELLY texture!
the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover comes in an adorable baby pink shade of pump dispenser bottle... +points for being pink!

PS. did you know that Biore is the No.1 makeup remover brand in Japan and in Singapore?

How to use: 
Pump an appropriate amount (2-3 pumps) onto hands and spread evenly over face and eye area
Massage gently to dissolve makeup
Rinse thoroughly with water. (It is not necessary to remove cleansing liquid with cotton pad or tissue)
the pump styled dispenser is extremely convenient and easy to use! just 2-3 pumps for the entire face will do the trick. it's lightly fragranced with a pleasant fruity scent!
one of my pet peeves about makeup removers is that many of them never leave my face feeling clean after use and always leave behind traces of makeup, especially when it comes to the waterproof mascara and eyeliner i use! however, when i use more strength to remove my makeup, i feel like i'm permanently causing damage and creating fine lines around my delicate eye area! :(

the texture of Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover is like a thick viscose gel, and it glides on skin to remove even waterproof makeup with ease! Biore Aqua Jelly Remover contains 1/3 moisturising essence as well, which helps to keep your skin smooth and moisturized after use! sounds too good to be true?!

i decided to put the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover to the test: will it do its job as stated, and be able to remove even waterproof makeup with minimal stress and rubbing to our delicate skin?
THE ARM TEST:
here are some of the makeup products i use on a regular basis: lip gloss, lip stick, waterproof mascara, shimmer eye shadow and waterproof eyeliner!

i applied a couple pumps of the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover onto my arm, and after about half a minute of gentle massaging, you can see the makeup has melted off entirely! (eeks, check out those little hairy looking things, those are the fibres coming out of the mascara that i applied!) the waterproof make up like the mascara and eyeliner took a little longer than the rest, but still came off easily.
rinse off with thoroughly with water, and deng deng deng!!! all the makeup has completely disappeared, and my skin is left feeling absolutely clean and moisturized, with no sticky or oily residue!

and... THE FACE TEST:
used the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover on half my face so you can see the difference!
check it out: even the waterproof eyeliner and mascara has been completely removed! and my skin felt incredibly smooth and moisturized after use: thanks to the 1/3 mosturizing essence the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover contains!
(another shot so you can get another look. mascara and eye makeup all gone!)

what i like best about the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover is that it feels so gentle on the skin, because the jelly texture glides on skin so easily and i can remove my makeup with less friction and tugging especially around my eye area. when it comes to removing waterproof makeup, it effectively removes all traces of my makeup while leaving my face feeling moisturized! two thumbs up!
Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover retails at major supermarkets, hypermarkets and western pharmacies, for $$24.90 (230ml bottle)!
