Well, for the longest time, i've been wanting to write about this product but i guess i've been too lazy.. *I've been busy i mean* and also this product would have easily made to Show and Tell Monday, if i don't attend the event held by Mandom Corp.
Not a very familiar makeup remover brand? maybe Cleansing Express may ring a bell?
Yes! Bifesta is the more refine and new version of Cleansing Express.
The reason Bifesta is my go to make up remover is because it is a water based make up remover strong enough to remove SOME water proof mascaras.
I've been using cleansing express ever since it was available in Singapore a few years back. Now, Bifesta has bought in a whole range of cleansing lotions , Cleasing Gel, Cleansing liquid and Eye Make up Remover .
Not only have Bifesta changed their name and packaging, they have also improved their formulas with Plus-ion Hyaluronic Acid Structure that helps retain moisture on skin even after washing off.
The Bifesta Cleansing range are divided in to 2 different types. The rinse off types and the non rinse types.
Let's start with the non rinse types:
The Non Rinse cleanser are mainly the Cleansing lotion. Bifesta has got the Moist Cleansing lotion with ceramide infused for dry skin, Sebum Cleansing lotion with Green tea extract for oily skin, Brightup Cleansing lotion with saxifrage extract for dull skin and course my personal favorite, Agecare Cleansing lotion with Coenzyme Q10 for agecare.
As mentioned, i've been using the Agecare cleansing lotion since it's launch and till date i'm still loving it. However, if you are someone who has oily skin, i wouldn't recommend the Agecare cleansing lotion as it might cause break outs.
I wouldn't say that it's totally ok to not rinse off the cleansing lotion as i would recommend for anyone using the non rinse cleansing lotion to just gently rinse their face with water. But after a crazy night at the club and having to remove your make up is already a huge pain in the ass, then knowing that you can get away with not washing your face after removing your make up with the bifesta cleansing lotion is a huge relief.
Next, the rinse off cleansers:
The Rinse of cleansers consist of the Gel, liquid and Eye make up remover. All suitable for all skin types and most importantly, please make sure you wash off those cleansers before hitting the sack. Bifesta has came up with the rinse off cleanser as they understand that besides those that love the cleansing lotions, there is another group of beauty lovers the love their massage off cleansers.
I'm no big fan of cleansing gels and liquids but! Eye make up removers are a must for my current mascara as it's one of the known most stubborn mascaras.
I was surprise that the Bifesta Eye Make up remover manage to remove my mascara with just 3 wipes and dun be scared off by it's rinse off type label. Seriously the eye make up remover is not oily and has a watery texture just like the cleansing lotion.
Here i have my trusty Bifesta Agecare Cleansing Lotion and Eye Make up Remover.
How do i remove my make up using the Bifesta cleansers? Simple!
For my whole entire face, i need 5 cotton pads, yes! 5! 2 for the eyes and 3 for the face. I have got a big face so if you have got a smaller face, maybe 4 is enough.
1st: The Eyes
- We shake the eye make up remover well to make sure the Emollient layer (that help to remove water proof makeups) and the Water based layer (wraps off oil & Sebum) is well mixed together.
- Pour about a 50 cents coin size of remover on a cotton pad
- Press down gently and hold for 10sec ( hold longer for stubborn and hard to remover make up) the cotton pad on your eyes before wiping off make up
- Do the same for your other eye.
2nd: The face
-Take 2 cotton pads and pump a generous amount of cleansing lotion on the cotton. (The result i need 2 cotton pads is to make sure that the cotton pads are able to hold the cleansing lotion)
- Wipe cotton pads all over face including the eye area to remove eye make up remover
- Take other cotton pad and pump 2 pumps of cleansing lotion on cotton pad
- Wipe cotton pad all over face making sure that no there is no trace of make up left.
And, we are done.
Alittle test for all cleansing products:
Clearly the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion is strong enough to wipe off some water proof make ups BUT for less rubbing and tagging on your eye area, pair the cleansing lotion up with the eye make up remover for best results.
Till next time people, take care!
