I believe there are times when you had that moment when you applied your mascara and you immediately blinked. Yup! That mascara has not dried up yet and some of the product went to your under eye area.

Oh no! What to do?!?!? Nope! No rubbing, please!

No need to worry… The Canmake Cleansing Stick is here to the rescue! 😀

Review: Bifesta Cleansing Lotion

Makeup removers are super important for makeup lovers. I believe that they should be considered as holy grail products since these are the ones that we rely on when it comes to thoroughly removing our makeup and keeping our skin clean from all the dirt that we have accumulated throughout the day. Of course, not only should makeup removers be effective in cleansing. They should also be gentle and safe for our skin.

Based on experience, cleansing oils are my best bet for removing my makeup. However, I have tried another kind of makeup remover (a water-based type) which levels at par with cleansing oils. This is the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion. 😀

There are different variants of the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion which can suit your specific skin type:

  • Moist for normal to dry and sensitive skin
  • Sebum for combination to oily skin
  • Bright Up for combination to oily skin
  • Agecare for normal to dry skin


(picture taken from the Bifesta Philippines Facebook page)

I initially planned to buy the Sebum variant. However, when I visited Watsons in SM Makati, only the Moist variant is available. With that, I just bought a bottle of the Moist variant to give this makeup remover a try. It is actually a good decision because it did not disappoint me at all. 😉

Review: Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Remover

Removing eye makeup is tough. This is where you deal with removing layers of eyeshadows, dark eyeliners and waterproof mascaras. It is important to remove all traces of your eye makeup but your makeup remover should be gentle enough for your eye area. For me, it is important that the makeup remover could effortlessly dissolve eye makeup so that you don’t have to tug the skin around your eyes too much. Let me share with you my experience on using the Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Remover.

I love using cleansing oils because these are the best in easily removing all residues of makeup. Yet, I am not closing my options to just using cleansing oils as my makeup remover. You will never know if other types of makeup removers are good as well if you don’t try, right? Well, that was my thought when I decided to get the Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Remover. It is like a toner so don’t expect to get an oily feel afterwards. I was told that this could effectively remove eye makeup and keep the skin soft and supple. Aside from that, this could also be used for the entire face. So, I gave it a try.

Product Description (printed on the box of the product):

bobbi brown eye makeup remover product description

Since this is not like the usual cleansing oils, I put some of this product in a cotton pad just like a toner. Then, I go with my usual routine of removing my makeup. In addition to that routine, I let the cotton pad stay in my eye area for 20 seconds before I wipe off the makeup.

I already ran out of my Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Serum and I am about to finish my sample of the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream. I am hesitating to buy these products because they are too pricey so I tried searching for other brands that carry serums and eye creams. I was about to give up looking when I spotted Pure Beauty in Watsons in SM Makati. They have affordable skincare products. With that, I got their Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum and the White & Bright Eye Cream.

Review: Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream

I prefer using a cleansing oil to remove my makeup. I even tried looking for one when I happen to pass by an Etude House store in Greenbelt. However, the saleslady told me that they don’t have a cleansing oil. Instead, they have a cleansing cream. It is an opportunity for me to try another variant of a makeup remover. Thus, I bought the Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream in Aloe Tea.

Product Description (printed on the packaging cover of the product):

Cleansing Cream’s creamy texture contains Aloe extract to remove dirt and makeup while keeping skin moisturized with the pleasant fragrance of tea.

Product Description (taken from the Etude House website):

Washable makeup removal cream has light texture with low oil content for women in their 20’s-30’s. Smooth spreadable texture ideal for facial massage for women 40+
