Biore Cleansing Oil - In cotton wipes; Deja Vu Lash Knockout mascara

I've been eying this for a while now, especially the cleansing oil but in the end, I always end up buying my usual ZA Cleansing Oil due to the fear of it being yucky, sticky and hard to wash off. About two years ago, Watson came out with it's very own in house brand cleansing oil. Cost quite a bit and I found out that I love it as much as I love eating our cafeteria food which I bloody hell avoid whenever I can. Everytime I think of our cafeteria food, I cringe and makes a face. Automatically.

The Watsons cleansing oil was oil all right, cooking oil would probably be easier to wash off than that. It left an oily residue that no amount of washing or scrubbing can get off. I'm serious. It adheres to your face like paper to glue. If anyone was actually bought that thing, please let me know, I would like to hear your thoughts on it. But anyway, I no longer see it selling in Watsons. It was in a yellow see thru bottle.

I ended up having the guts to buy the Biore one only because of two people, Bunny and ShuAddict.



Bunny (click here for her hilarious review) reminded me how much I loved cleansing wipes and how I absolutely hate lugging my make up remove about whenever I stay over at JH's house. Not to mention, it spilled on my bag the last trip!! *&^%$. The only reason I stopped buying wipes was because I couldn't find a good one, they promise you the stars and the moon only to find out that they remove nothing.

ShuAddict (click here) did a review on this and piped my curiosity and I decide, 'Ah what the heck, lets try it!' I went to so many Guardian to get the RM9.88 for two but I couldn't find them. I ended up getting them in Watsons for RM6 *sniff*



A small sealed packet inside the plastic packet. Seals nicely *mumbles*unlike a certain lousy brand that can't re-seal after you open them.. Will definitely be buying more of these when I go traveling (if I ever go anywhere) In fact I love them so much that I headed over to Guardian to get the bigger box. Sir Terrible Memory, being my gallant prince paid for them. Thankies love! It's so nice to have people help out during difficult times. I really do appreciate it!



How do I love/hate it? AHH, I LOVEEE IT! It does as it says and removes everything without the greasy and sticky feeling. Even the P.I.T.A Maybelline Magnum is washed off with minimum scrubbing. *hops around* No funky smell and absolutely no regrets. It's a little expensive though. RM6 for 10 wipes (RM0.60 each). The 48 wipes is a little cheaper at RM22 (RM0.46 each)



Pinky Doodle doo aka my sister, sponsored me next item. A DejaVu mascara - Lash Knockout which I never knew existed till she gave them to me. She couldn't decide if she needed a volumizing or lengthening mascara more and ended up buying this. The only thing I ever buy from Sasa is false eyelashes, even then its seldom. Pinky loves things from Sasa so I'm guessing she got this during her, "I am bored, I must go buy something" time. Lucky me! *grins*


Bad smudgy picture :D

I'm liking the old/normal DejaVu mascara better. The more you apply doesn't seem to work much. The above picture is after apply 2 coats of it. I definitely see the volumising effect but nothing else. Lengthening is almost zero. Then again, it didn't promise any lengthening effect. It's definitely easy to remove but then again, I used my usual oil cleanser so everything comes off one way or another. No messy residue left though.



One reason why I smudge so bad in the above picture is because I used the Victoria Secret Very Sexy Gel eyeliner duo. I had bad experience with it the first time about a year ago and tried to use it again and it's still as bad. Smudges terribly, not much lasting power, goes MIA in a few hours, turns grey etc.

.... *i hate you secretly* Biore cleansing wipes is my all time fav wipes and they freaking don't sell it here! *throws water at bf for anger reduction* If you ever spot the cleansing oil for biore, I think it does magic to your face. Waaaay better than the wipes!! But so jealous... orz...
Hmmm... I guess I'll stick to my original DJV mascara... You're lucky you get "sponsors" !! lol!

Hehe...I love the cute nicknames you give your man and sis. ;) I don't think I've heard of Lash Knockout either but even though it didn't work out for you, it was sweet of her to give it to you. And oh to be in Asia! I'd love to try those wipes. :D

P.S The comment you left me is too funny XP Seriously, all I use is a point and shoot so I'm surprised that anyone actually appreciates them! But thank you :D I don't know what you're talking about. Your pics look great to me, babe!

Am glad to have 'helped' with the Biore wipes :) I plan to get the big box too, much more worth it.

Mascara looks interesting but is a bit pricey no?
