Review: Loreal Sublime Fresh Deep Pure Foaming Water

Loreal Sublime Fresh Deep Pure Foaming Water (50ml)
Today review is on Loreal Sublime Fresh Deep Pure Foaming Water.

Came in a nice greenish blue bottle.
The pump is easy to use and will pump out very light white foam. Before its being pump out, the cleanser just look like water. 
Easy to use pump.
Looks like liquid before pump.
White light foam after pump.
The makeup remover contain a light ocean breeze smell. 

For my face, I only need to use 1/3 of the pump and I only use it for my everyday light makeup. 

Lets do a test on makeup that I used frequently. 

From left to right:
Loose powder, Loreal lipstick, The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff On Radiance, The Body Shop eye brown pencil, Silkygirl Big Eye waterproof mascara.
Testing the makeup remover.
A little pump and a little massage. I actually did massage using the foam for quite long before the makeup is clean. 
Pump foam onto makeup.
After massaging for sometime.
However after washing, I realize the lipstick isn't removed completely. So conclusion is that too heavy makeup needs to be cleanse more than once. 
After cleansing. Lipstick not very cleanly removed.
Overall, this makeup remover can cleanly remove light makeup only. It does not seem to cleanly remove lipsticks or heavy makeup easily. Not exactly the makeup remover I am looking for.

My Review
Was shopping at Althea when I saw this product having big sale. Gold!!! It caught my attention. Since it's having sale, decided to try it. :)

The product came in a black box printed with some Egyptian lady image on it.

The mask itself is also place in a similar pattern black container.On the cover itself, printed with Egyptian lady image plus Egyptian language symbol. Look very classy to me.

There is a lid covering the mask. Without opening it, I can already see thin little gold mask forming around the lid. So excited to see it
Covered with a lid.

But when I open the lid, I go wow!!! My first impression was that the gold mask looks like gold color wall paint. :P

It is gold in color and have a very thick liquid texture. There is a very light cosmetic smell to it. Not fragrance but not to the extant of smelly. One thing is that you won't really smell a thing during application. 
It is gold in color and have a very thick liquid texture that looks like gold color wall paint.
For a texture like this, the scoop provided is really not that useful as it will drip off the scoop easily. So really need to be careful when using the scoop. 
Not easy to scoop as it will drip.
For me, I use the scoop to scoop up the mask, take the mask from the scoop using my fingers and apply it onto my face.  

I won't say it is easy to apply this mask. I will only say you need practice to apply this mask perfectly. 
Experimenting on my hand.
There are a few advice for applying this mask:
  1. Take care not to mask onto your hair as it is really difficult to remove it after that as it will stick onto your hair when dried up.
  2. With Singapore hot weather, better to do it in air-con room. Otherwise your own sweat will melt the mask into clay and it won't dry up for you to remove. Become sticky to remove especially around forehead and nose area.
The mask feels cool during application and it does not produce a tight feeling when it dries up like other peeling mask.

Well............looking at myself in the mirror, I really look like those Shaolin 18 Bronze men (少林十八銅人). Look so funny to me. LOL.
Applying the mask onto my skin.
It is easy to know when it is dry. Just touch it using your hands. You will feel a layer of bouncy mask just covering your skin.

Peeling off is fun too and I don't have to wash my face after peeling off. :) The mask is actually rubbery and stretchy when it dries up. I can feel it when I peel it off.

After removing, my first reaction is "Nothing special leh!" I thought I should see more but the very obvious different is that my face looks more shiny. My skin is able to absorb my skin care products better after that.

There is no effect on pores tightening, skin tightening, black heads, scars and etc. It is not particularly useful for improving skin hydration too.

I thought that's it for the effect of the mask until the next day. When I wake up, my skin looks renewed. And it does not look and feel like a just woke up skin. My skin looks like I have already done my clean up and applied skin care products when I actually have not done anything to it.
Before and after used.

My Review
Spotted this Nivea Make Up Clear Cleansing Wipes on sale when I was having my holiday shopping in one of Malaysia's Watsons. Decided to buy 1 pack to try since its way cheaper then in Singapore especially when its on sale in Malaysia.

Opening the cleansing wipe to use is easy. Just tear the opening stickers and pull out 1 wipe from the opening then reseal it back. :)
Easy to open.

Pull the wipe out from the opening.
The wipe feels pretty cool to touch. Maybe because I put them in the refrigerator. There is no particular smell from the wipe. 

The wipe is not very wet. Just the right percent of moist to make my skin feels comfortable when use. 

And I also notice that the wipe is not easily tear and don't turn hairy after used.

One cleansing wipe is enough for my whole face since I don't put on heavy makeup. And my skin will feel clean, moisturized and refreshing after wiping
one wipe is enough for 1 time use for my light makeup.
Let us do a simple experiment on my common used makeup.

From left to right:  Cathy Doll CC Speed White Powder, The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff On Radiance, The Body Shop eye brown pencil, Loreal Color Riche Lipstick, Silkygirl eye shadow, Silkygirl blusher, Silkygirl Big Eye waterproof mascara. 
Experiment done.
First wipe across the makeup, I can see 80% of the makeup already being fully clean. Just a little eye brown pencil, lipstick, eyeshadow and mascara left. 
First wipe on the makeup.
Makeup left from first wipe.
And I went off to wipe it for another 2 times. Wow!!! All fully removed! clean and moisturizing. 
2nd and 3rd wipe.
All clean after 3rd wipe.
But it is a little expensive to me if we consider it's retail price. So when it's on sale, grab more. 

Overall, this cleansing wipe can cleanly removed my makeup, leaving my skin feel clean, moisturized and refreshing after wiping. 1 wipe is enough for my whole face each time. :)
