Eye Makeup Remover -Koh Gen Do -Cleansing Spa Water

on 9/22/2018 12:20:00 PM


I got this as a sample that lasted four uses, so for long term analysis this won't be very useful.

Overall, this was okay. I used it as a makeup remover. I don't have any complaints, but I don't have anything great to say either. I didn't notice any strong scent. It's pretty gentle and gets most of my makeup off with a cotton pad, but my Bior Perfect Oil makeup remover does a much better job. I always washed my face afterwards and followed with my regular toner. It's a very average product, so I don't think it's worth the price.

I'd say it's worth trying if you need something gentle and don't mind the price, but I won't be buying it.

Liquid -Koh Gen Do -Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

Incredible foundation. It's really not that moisturizing. At least, not nearly as much as one would think given its name. Coverage is incredible. I seem to get a lot of compliments on my skin when I wear it. People think it's my skin. No heavy scent (love), no skin reactions (really love) and easy to remove. The shade range is excellent. I wear the lightest shade 001. Although I am not that fair I prefer to add blush and bronzer and let my skin seem bright underneath. It's not cheap but what is these days? As I "age" my likes of foundation are more skin like, soft, needs to blur my pores and give decent coverage without being cakey. Wear time is all day ++. And that includes my skin care underneath which is a collection of serums and a somewhat thick'ish Sunscreen (Obaji Matte Sun.) This checks all the boxes for my current needs and wants and if Kate Bosworth approves...sign me up. I can see why it's an MUA fav.

Liquid -Koh Gen Do -Aqua Foundation

There is too much aluminum in this foundation for me to feel comfortable using this. I'm surprised that such high end foundation would use so much of toxic chemicals in its formula. While the foundation applies beautifully and coverage seems to be good (doesn't even need silicon primer), the ingredients that makeup this foundation is just a no-no for me and I advise women-- especially PREGNANT WOMEN to stay away from this product.


Liquid -Koh Gen Do -Aqua Foundation (reformulated 2018)

This review is for the newly formulated version of this foundation, which I`ve been playing with for a few weeks now. It is definitely better coverage than the old formula: the finish is the same as the old one, a satin finish, not quite dewy, as it claims, not quite matte. It works really well on top of a denser, higher coverage primer (the best one that worked for me was the Kose High Cover Base SPF 50 PA+++). When the weather is colder and with my Kose primer underneath, it lasts really well. However today was like 25C and I`ve worn just a sunblock underneath, and with that it lasted okay (about 8 hours), but after the 8th hour it started visibly fading in my T-zone. It`s a lovely foundation, but for me the key to make it work is that Kose primer. At 45 bucks (Japan price), it`s a pretty decent foundation and I like the new formula in terms of coverage. In terms of lasting power, the old formula stayed on me better. But hey, at least I know a good primer to keep it locked, and at that price I`m happy.

Cleansers -Koh Gen Do -Cleansing Spa Water Cloth

on 3/12/2018 12:26:00 AM


These are seriously the best makeup wipes I have ever used, but I just can't justify the price! They cost $15 for a pack of 10 or 30 clothes for $43. I would only consider buying these again if they were somehow on sale or if I had a code. I don't wear makeup everyday, so I don't really go through these quickly. These are the wipes I travel with because they are ultra saturated and take everything off. The only thing I don't see it taking off is maybe waterproof mascara. Whatever they soak this in is a very impressive liquid because not only does it smell heavenly...it doesn't irritate the skin one bit. The packaging seems pretty standard for wipes, but they remain very moist and completely soaked in the spa water. I don't really know how they don't dry out like other wipes might, but it's pretty impressive. I would totally consider buying more if I got a deal on them. In the meantime, I am a big fan of the Pond's wipes.
