GIVEAWAY : Coming Clean with Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip

The lovely folks from Biore is organising a sampling campaign for all my dear readers, so read on to find out more.

We have increased the number of giveaway to 50 samples, so do continue commenting or writing in!
Details of giveaway listed at the bottom!


I had actually purchased a bottle of the Biore Eye & Lip Makeup Remover even before the Biore team contacted me about the sampling campaign. They did get hold of me at an opportune time as I have been using the product for nearly two months and really quite like it. Since I use eye makeup and mascaras nearly everyday, makeup removal has become part of my evening routine and I have been on a lookout for an effective eye makeup remover. So, the new Biore remover fits the bill quite well!

This Biore Eye & Lip Makeup Remover is relatively new in our local market although their oil-cleansing wipes and oil cleansers have been available for some time. The wipes are not as effective on eye makeup as I'd hope but they do remove face makeup quite well.

With its micro cleansing formula, Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip softens even heavily layered waterproof mascara for easy removal. Gentle on the eye and lashes, it reduces the need for excessive, hard and repeated wiping around eye area. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid moisturizing ingredients to keep skin around eyes moist. Leaves no oily residue. Also suitable for removing lip makeup.

You need to shake the bottle up to mix the oil and water together. Pour a small amount onto a cotton pad, place it over an eyelid for about 5 to 10 seconds, then gently swipe the makeup off. Fold the cotton in half and very softly wipe the undereye area to remove any excess. Repeat with the other eye.

I usually find bi-phase removers to be more effective when it comes to removing eye makeup and am generally quite pleased with the Biore remover. I don't have to wipe as many times, which is a good thing as excessive wiping may cause fine lines and dryness. However, if you are wearing particularly stubborn waterproof mascaras, this remover may not be able to remove all at one go.

Other than its eye makeup removing capabilities, I like the fact that it does not sting my eyes. It does leave a slightly oily residue so the description is not entirely accurate. At least it doesn't cloud my vision, which can happen with many other oil cleansers. As I wash my face after, the residue does not bother me much.

If you are looking for an effective and affordable option, the Biore Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip is definitely one to consider. It costs RM29.90 for a 130ml bottle and can be purchased at most drugstores and Sasa. Depending on usage, a bottle should last between 3 to 6 months.
