Makeup removal, a habitual thing for all beauty addicts. With the surge of waterproof & long-lasting makeup in the market, makeup removal has certainly become a hassle if you are not using the right products. What more, everyone has different skin concerns so it is almost impossible to find a one-size-fits-all wonder.
Having tested out a whole bunch of makeup removers, I sure do have a good idea on what works and what doesn't. Imagine my joy when I attended the exciting launch event of Bifesta's NEW Cleansing Lotions earlier this year! Boasting a whopping range of 5 different variations to target different skin type, the new Bifesta Cleansing Lotion definitely did shake up the beauty industry with their exciting revamp! Now 12x stronger to remove our high performance makeup, it still promises to be gentle on the skin. Not convinced? Read on as I put this new cleansing lotion to the test!
Fun fact: Bifesta actually means Beauty Festival in Japanese!
Being the pioneer to introduce water-based makeup removers to Japanese women, Bifesta has come a long way and perfected the cleansing routine for us to achieve crystal clear glowing skin. Now we know why our Japanese counterparts are always flaunting their flawless skin!
The revamped Bifesta Cleansing Lotion is the first to incorporate the use of fatty acid, Polyglyceryl, as an effective skin softening cleansing agent that is gentle on the skin. What's even better is that it is alcohol, paraben, colourant & fragrance-free! Available in 5 different variations, it targets most skin types such as dry, combination oily, dull, ageing as well as acne-prone skin. I am certain that you will find a variant to suit your skin concerns.
Out of the 5 different types of Bifesta Cleansing Lotion, the Acne Care variant stood out to me most as it is the problem that I have been seeking to fix in ages. It consists of antibacterial & anti-inflammatory ingredients to help with acne-prone skin. With the cleansing lotion being oil-free, it is a major plus point for me as I know that there will not be any oily residue to clog my pores.
I like to drench each cotton rounds and leave it on my eyes for 10 seconds. While it is on my eyes, I give it a good patting massage so that the tiny micelles can effectively lift off my makeup without much tugging.
Oh and did you know, the revamped Bifesta Cleansing Lotion has even SMALLER micelles. With tinier micelles, the surface area in contact with the micelles on your skin is larger! Now we know why the revamped formula is much stronger than its predecessor!
With little force and just one swipe, the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion is able to gently yet effectively take off my waterproof eye makeup! There was no tugging involved and even my falsies came off so easily! I am sure my lashes approve of this as well. For once, none of my own natural lashes came off together with my makeup as I barely used any force.
To further test out the efficacy of the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion, I went ahead to remove half my face with the same cotton pad (I took off the lashes from the pad of course!) Notice how there are ZERO stains on my skin despite using the same cotton pad? Usually, you will end up with a messy streaky face if you remove your eye and face makeup together, but with Bifesta, my skin is crystal clear! The remover traps the makeup on your pad as it swiftly removes your makeup with lesser wipes. Trust the Japanese with their ingenious innovations!
In the past, if I ever use a cotton pad to remove my makeup, my skin would often end up looking red and sensitive. With Bifesta's Cleansing Lotion, the effective yet gentle formula is able to take off all my makeup without causing any irritation. Bifesta helps to keep my skin crystal clear, happy, and clean of makeup. Check out how radiant my skin looks even without makeup!
If you are looking for an oil-free makeup remover, why not give Bifesta a try? I am completely sold by their efficacy and how great my skin feels after cleansing. My skin does not feel sticky at all and every night, I can go to bed in peace knowing that there are zero traces of pore-clogging makeup to give me a scary pimple in the morning.
Psst, this is totally out of context from the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion but Bifesta has THE BEST travel makeup wipes that doesn't leave you with a half dried packet in the middle of your trip. It is the only makeup remover that I travel with as it works amazing and comes with a snap-lock closure to ensure that the wipes doesn't dry out. I LOVE IT so much, I stock up packs of it for my last minute travels.
Priced strategically from S$16.90-$18.90 for 300ml, you can find Bifesta's Cleansing Lotion at all leading supermarkets, personal care stores and selected pharmacies & department stores. With such a pocket friendly price tag, this powerhouse remover is bound to leave your skin feeling spanking clean & happy!
