8 Top Well-know Makeup Remover Review: Just Get it Beauty


Long time ago, Zong Min wrote about the innovation makeup remover. The article explained about the importance of remover, the types of makeup remover and the methods of use.  That was an article with almost no pictures of the advantages of the product.

Why it did not had pictures? Because just remove makeup is already enough trouble. Remove not even Fish Leong has enough courage! And when it comes to the harm of not removing makeup, we faced a cliché: pore blockage, cause acne, accelerate aging and so on … Britain has a warrior who had challenged a “30-day No Remover”.

A British internet friend and the comparison of 30 days before and after without make-up remove.

Of course, makeup is also very troublesome, but looking after makeup and how we become prettier, and the attendance at appointments and praise from other people. Those are things that people look forward. Makeup remover is not the same, you have been busy all day, go back home exhausted, but still have to face the color of the dark eye circles and mottled smallpox imprinted on your face. It is hard to find the energy to go to zoning, to massage, to emulsification, to wash, and then two times clean and moisturizing, and then again … How to do it? Remove makeup is so painful!

Among the variety of makeup remover products, want the most convenient and quick to complete the process of makeup remover process. Since the choice is laziness, there is not second cleaning and even we do not considered the two phase makeup remover.

8 Top Well-know Makeup Remover Review: Just Get it Beauty

According to the “three needs” (cheap, simple-easy and gentle-moisturizing), “Three Do not” (do not oil, don’t alcohol, do not irritate)  principles, I  prepare out for the test the following 8 hot-selling makeup remover water, from cost-effective, softness and cleansing power:

  1. Cost/performance (price divided by the number of ML, the higher the prices scored lower)

Note: As a result of promotional activities or overseas online shopping differences, the prices might differ. This time review is based on daily domestic web pages.

  1. Bioderma Sébium H2O

228 yuan

My teacher recommend the Blue Water (the real blue water is actually another one, but usually this one is called in that way) was when I still in the professional modeling study. Later I found that almost every stylist has one bottle.  Because oneself had used it for many years, I can assure that the price of 100 more or less is steady, and is not only a big bottle but also cheap.

  • Origin: France

  • Main ingredient: Micelle Gel Skin Cleansing formula, zinc gluconate, copper sulfate

  • Type of skins: mixed, oily skin

The brand-new Bioderma remover bottle cap is sealed, but once opened; it will not be able to maintain a solid state, the leakage of spilled fluid might occur. Add the fact of the fat bottle body, for travelling result inconvenient. Normally I would pour the remover into other bottle. Bioderma Blue Water is also the only remover with color water from the 8 testing products of this review.

  1. Bioderma Sensibio H2O 500ml

228 yuan

Bioderma (actually only the bottle cap) pink water is as well-known as her sister Blue water. Compared with the emphasis on clean oil control of blue water, pink water pay more attention to the applicability of variety of skin, enhanced moisturizing and soothing ingredients, making it more suitable for sensitive and red skin.

  • Origin: France

  • Main ingredient: D.A.F. Patented formula (low fructose, mannitol, L-rhamnose monohydrate, xylitol), cucumber extract

  • Type of skins: all skin, sensitive, reddening skin

If you pay attention you can see in the picture, on the right side of the bottle has tape traces. Yes, that is, I need to use the work of the adhesive tape repeatedly to prevent pasted and leaking.

  1. Avène Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover 400ml

270 yuan

Avene Spray has once become a synonym for sensitive skin, even if not sensitive skin, as long as the skin present a little instability, everyone would spray some of the product. So when choosing a makeup Remover, Avene natural liquid becomes first choice for sensitive skins.

  • Origin: France

  • Main Ingredient: Avène Spring water

  • Type of skins: all skin, sensitive skin

The difference from other brands is in the composition of its fancy label. Avène always believe that their “spring water” is their shop sign. Of course, they do not forget to declare that they do not contain alcohol and benzoic acid ester. They help to maintain the skin itself barrier and the skin is not compromised, thereby have the characteristics of establishing tolerant products.

  1. Beauclair Cleansing Lotion 500ml

69 yuan

Beauclair is the makeup remover that I bought from Japan, not  well-known in China but in almost every drug store of Tokyo sell it. The product contain mainly extracts of carambola leaves and alcohol-free, no mineral oil, no preservative formula, and no obvious odor.

  • Origin: Japan

  • Main ingredient: Carambola leaf extract, free (no alcohol, no mineral oil, no preservatives, no perfume, no pigment)

  • Type of skin: all skin

From last year every day, I has been using Beauclair Cleansing. Although compared to before the frequency that I makeup had decline, but a year (4 season), 3 summer in the Ocean Cirty with the daily sun is also necessary. Sometimes when I am lazy, I just remove the sunscreen, then apply lotion and eye cream, and is all right. The most important is that not stuff acne! (Do not imitate with Strong-effect waterproof sunscreen)

  1. Kog Gen Do Cleansing SPA Water

185 yuan

A Japanese brand that uses Korean names. Last year I also visited the flagship store of their company. With 300ml volume, is the smallest of the 8 products of this review, and  also the only one with the concept of spa water and spa.

  • Origin: Japan

  • Main ingredient: Hot spring water, white birch juice, glycerin

  • Type of skin: all kinds of skin

For a period was a hot product as remover makeup water. Koh Gen Do prices are in the first-line brand. There are not many differences with the selling points between the products of this review. Iin fact, makeup remover water ingredients relatively simple, there will be no big difference. But how to achieve functional balance and cost-effective, that is, we will focus on testing the part.

  1. SEPHORA Triple Action Cleansing Water Face & Eyes

129 yuan

Sephora self-owned brand has been walking a high cost-effective way. Its makeup remover cotton is one of the products that I always recommend, but this makeup remover has had one year in the market. It has two presentations, large bottle and small bottle. The large bottle of 400ml has a pressure pump design, enhance the quality of the sense.

  • Origin: France

  • Main Ingredient: Calendula extract, Senna seed polysaccharide

  • Type of skin: all kinds of skin

A bottle of Original French make-up remover water for 120 yuan, and with a variety of first-line brand display in Sephora, it is difficult to let people not tempted. The design of the pressure pump seems to make people feel convenient, but in fact, I used it for nearly half an hour before a figure it out how to put down that pump head. In addition, in the ingredients has added flavor, there is a clear fragrance.

  1. L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water 3 in 1 Refreshing 400ml

109 yuan

Since the listing, L ‘ oreal  remover water has a crazy support. Cleanse, remove makeup, soothe are three concepts of this product. It smell like the bubbles that we used to play when we was small. After using, has an obvious film-forming sense.

  • Origin: China

  • Main ingredient: Fu Shan mineral water, French rose Essence

  • Type of skin: mixed, oily skin

As Bioderma Cleansing Water, both use Micelle technology, that is, both hydrophilic and lipophilic formula for daily makeup remove. Although it is a French brand, but this time the two L ‘ oreal remover water is Suzhou domestic version. With the them, I also bought two bottles of American version of Garnier makeup remover water, but the card was in logistics for more than a month. So later, I would make again the comparison with it.

  1. L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water 3 in 1 Moisturizing 400ml

109 yuan

Besides, of the packaging color and audience positioning difference, there is not a big difference with the previous L’Oreal product. In a blind test, it would be hard to differentiate this two water. The curious things is that the refreshing type emphasizes “also suitable for sensitive skin” instead of this is more nourishing but not, of course, the reason is also related to the composition.

  • Origin: China

  • Main ingredient: Fu Shan mineral water, French rose Essence

  • Suitable for skin quality: dry skin

Compared with the previous several products, the two L ‘ oreal makeup water bottle cap are slightly rough. The main propaganda “French rose pristine” this ingredient, in fact, is only in the moisturizing type. Although only in composition is in the end of the list, but should considerate also the based on floral composition. Also there is not label of sensitive skin.

Price is not the only factor in the cost of the product, but it is the consumer’s consideration of a product. The evaluation of the 8 makeup remover water price span is not small, but the comparison still has big differences. Of course, the variation in the overseas online shopping and discount prices are very considerable, so in order to maintain the accuracy of the data, we would only use the domestic official retail prices for reference.

The official price of the two stars of Bioderma product was bad. The ideal price in fact should be half of it, around 100 yuan. Although in this round it is positioned in the middle.

The French import product Sephora Cleansing water price is conscience, even has the same level price as the domestic L ‘ oreal cleansing water. In addition, the packaging is more professional than L’Oreal.

Beauclair Cleansing Lotion is the only product in this review with less than 100 yuan with 400ml volume.  As Koh Gen Do, both are produced in Japan. Although the packaging is cute, but after calculate the price, does not appear cute anymore.

  1. Gentleness

At the beginning of this article we have already mentioned that the reason for not considering other make-up remover products and only choose the pure “make-up remover” is to rush about gentle and refreshing. Although there is still controversy in the medical world about the rigid measurement of the pH value of healthy skin, at present, it is widely recognized that the skin surface of the human body has urea, uric acid, salt, lactic acid, amino acids, free fatty acids and other acidic substances. Healthy oriental skin pH should be 4.5 to 6.5 (that is weak acidity).

Furthermore, skincare products in particular has the ideal pH of 5.5. The selection of this test are also trying to promote the “moderate” or “weak acid” and other pH value linked to the selling point. So what is the truth? We are going to use a pH tester to know.

Before the test started I used three chemical reagents of potassium hydrogen phthalate (pH 4 acid), mixed phosphates (pH 7 neutral), sodium tetraborate (pH 10 alkaline) to calibrate the tester.

Test method: To test the stability of the product, we are going to poor the make-up remover liquid into s transparent glass and then put into the pH tester evenly stirred.

We are going to follow the previous sequence of the products to show the results. This part is simple and obvious, just looking at the pictures you will know.

  1. Bioderma Sébium H2O 500ml pH value: 4.8 (weak acidity) no problem. But wait a minute, what do you say on the picture of your details page?

Bioderma Sébium H2O to promote its affinity with the skin, the white bottom black words clearly marked out an optimal pH value of 5.5, which is a bit embarrassing.

  1. Bioderma Sensibio H2O 500ml pH value: 4.5 (weak acidity)

  2. Avène Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover 400ml pH value: 5.4 (weak acidity)

  3. Beauclair Cleansing Lotion 500ml pH value: 5.4 (weak acidity)

  4. Kog Gen Do Cleansing SPA Water pH value: 4.4 (weak acidity)

  5. SEPHORA Triple Action Cleansing Water Face & Eyes 400 ml pH value: 4.5 (weak acidity)

  6. L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water 3 in 1 Refreshing 400ml pH value: 7.0 (middle)

  7. L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water 3 in 1 Moisturizing 400ml pH value: 6.9 (middle)

According to the above test results, we can noticed that the evaluation of the 8 best-selling makeup remover water is basically in conform with the “gentle” and “weak acidity” standards, but there are some worthy of scrutiny aspects:

  1. Bioderma Two star Makeup remover water pH value 4.8 (blue water) and 4.5 (pink water), are in the “weak acid” category, but with the nominal pH value of 5.5 inconsistency, there are false propaganda suspected, such a situation really let me this Bioderma fan slightly disappointed.

  1. The results of this round of Avène cleansing lotion and Beauclair Cleansing Lotion results are pH 5.4, very close to the ideal skin care (pH 5.5) value. As an old medicine makeup, Avène maintain a high standard, and Beauclair performance can be describe as stunning.

  1. Kog Gen Do SPA and Sephora makeup remover water pH values also maintained between the pH4.4-4.5, in this round of testing belong to the middle level standard.

  1. “You must have” the two L ‘ Oreal remover water unfortunately are at the bottom of the test, with a pH of 6.9-7.0. Although still in the “neutral” range, but also already in the neutral pH value of 7.0 is a critical point. The packaging label “sensitive Skin” may also need to be a corresponding question mark.

  1. Cleansing Power

As a makeup remover water, of course, the core of the evaluation criteria is whether it can quickly remove and thoroughly clean. In order to facilitate observation, this round test would be from eye makeup, lip makeup, base makeup with Waterproof ability, outstanding pen products.

They are: Mac waterproof Eyeliner pen, Shu Uemura tint in gelato: lip and cheek color, zeniths Multi-effect modified Concealer pen

  • The first group: Sephora Cleansing Lotion, Koh Gen Do Cleansing water and Beauclair Cleansing Water (follow-up product test steps are referred to this round, so would no longer repeat the description)

Step 1: In the arm, apply three thick uniform strokes of the concealer pen, lip cheek cream, and waterproof eyeliner.

Step 2: Use makeup cotton to soak up the remover lotion and then apply on the arm, after 30 seconds remove it for contrast the result.

Step 3: Observation of the initial makeup remover, and then a second observation after the use of uniform strength back and forth friction in the makeup for three times.

Cleansing result: Beauclair Cleansing Water > Kog Gen Do SPA water > Sephora Cleansing Lotion

  • Second group: Bioderma Blue Water, Bioderma Pink Water, Avène Cleansing Water

Cleansing Result: Avène Lotion Cleanser > Bioderma Sébium H2O> Bioderma Sensibio H2O

  • Third group: L’Oreal Refresing, L’Oreal Moisturizing

Cleansing result: L’Oreal Refresing > L’Oreal Moisturizing

Overall, in the makeup part of the 8-product test performance is in a satisfactory level. Whether it is the base of the base makeup or waterproof strong eye lip makeup can be all easily remove. Of course, to get the ideal cleansing effect may also need to use more makeup cotton to wipe several times.

In this test performed excellent are est is excellent: Beauclair Cleansing Lotion and Kog Gen Do Cleansing SPA Water. Avène Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover is also commendable, but the clean force of eye makeup is relatively weak. The rest of them Sephora has wan the small prize; the other four basically are reduced to soy-sauce products.
