This product is amazing. I originally bought this product on a whim because I love Japanese cosmetic brands (although I hadn't heard of it before, but I have located it in Japan and its just as expensive). Anyways this is fantastic, I use it to remove my eye makeup and it does not sting my eyes at all. As the product is so expensive I remove the bulk of my makeup with a wipe then lightly go over my face with the other side of the cotton rounds I used on my eyes.
This is my HG foundation remover (for eyes, I use Lancome's Bi-Facil). This does take eye make up off very well without stinging, however, since I use waterproof eye make up, it takes some rubbing and I just don't want this precious product to go away so quickly because of the price, nor do I want any premature eye wrinkles from all the tugging without the help of an oil. I find it a nice substitute for all the facial-oil cleansing fad that is happening (which usually leaves me with deep cystic acne the day after). For someone as acne-prone and sensitive as me, this cleanses thoroughly without breaking me out, and I love the thought of it feeding my skin with nutrients while I'm cleaning it! Also, it's convenient for traveling if you need to take off your make up but don't have access to a lot of water (camping, etc). Though normally, I do wash my face after wiping my face with cotton pads soaked in KGD. *A tip to save some money: since water is the first ingredient on the wonderful list, you can just fill a smaller bottle with half KGD cleansing water and the other half with clean drinking water! It works just as well and doubles your supply ;)
Koh Gen Do's Cleansing Spa Water is absolutely perfect! Prior to discovering it, I was using Lancome Bi-Facils, which seemed to be the only thing that would remove my eyeliner and mascara... but, it left my eye area oily.
Enter this product by KGD. There is no fragrance, no oily residue, no stinging, and it leaves the skin soft. It easily removes all of my eye makeup without tugging, and I also use it on my face to remove foundation/blush before I do deep oil cleansing to get the rest. (I also wear SPF50 sunblock that has to be removed thoroughly or else I get clogged pores.)
Cleansing Spa Water is phenomenal, and I would recommend it to everyone. continued >>
How many times have you tried a product for the first time, to find out it is the most amazing product ever? If you're like me, that's a rarity. I've been looking for a great eye make remover and I feel like I've bought all of the drugstore ones and they all left my eyes either greasy,cloudy, or left me waking up looking like a raccoon in the morning, even after I washed my face at night. I found a nice size sample of this little gem tucked away in my samples box and I really didn't have a clue as to what it was. When I realized it was makeup remover I put a small dab on my cotton ball, and holy cow, it took everything off in one try. I am shocked and I can't believe how amazing this works. My eyes felt fresh, there was no greasiness, no foul smell, in fact I didn't smell anything, and to top it off I didn't go to bed with blurred vision, it did not bother my contacts and I woke up with no remnants of raccoon eyes in the morning. $40 seems a tad steep, but you know what? I probably spent well over that on a bunch of useless stuff. Once I'm running low on this sample, I'm going to buy another. AMAZING!!!!!!
I was running low on my makeup remover and found this beauty! It effortlessly removes all traces of eye makeup and leaves the skin soft and supple. One moderately soaked cotton pad cleaned both eyes, mascara and all! There is no color nor smell that I noticed either. I purchased this in the travel size bottle and it's a better buy than the Mac eye makeup remover. Mac's travel size is 1 oz. while KGD's travel size is 3.38 oz. Although KGD was a bit pricier, it contained more than 50% extra product! It also works better at removing makeup than Mac did for me. I'll have to repurchase this! Possibly even the big bottle!
This is the most amazing makeup remover I've ever tried. It looks and feels like water but gets off all my makeup effortlessly. It also doesn't bother my contacts at all. It's pricey but definitely worth it.
This product looks like water in the bottle and is just about unscented (occasionally I've caught a faint whiff of something herbal) - no heaviness anywhere, in texture or in scent. It also takes absolutely *everything* off. I poured some onto an oversized cotton square and went over my face after my usual Lancome Bi-Facial eye makeup remover and Korres Milk Protein cleansing wipe routine and some makeup still came off on the pad. On the second swipe everything came up clear. This cleanser does its job even on heavy makeup. It's also non-irritating - sometimes I have sore areas on my dry skin if I use a harsh cleanser but my skin felt soft, not dry, tight or irritated, after use.
The only drawback is the price - it costs BIG bucks (US$39 at Sephora). It's so spendy (for a makeup remover) that I only caved and bought it because I read all the positive reviews on here and Sephora. Much as I hate spending loads of money for something that isn't going to show and just exists to remove my makeup, However, the fact that it is so thorough and yet non-greasy and non-irritating just might keep me coming back to this product; it is really amazing and the combo of non-irritating/non-greasy/removes all makeup/unscented is quite hard to find. continued >>
This is an amazing product. It looks and feels like water but it really does remove all my makeup, even waterproof mascara! It's odorless, non-greasy, doesn't leave behind any residue and doesn't sting my eyes. I love that you don't need to follow-up with a cleanser afterwards and that it isn't made with any bad stuff like sulfates or phthalates. The price is a bit steep but I ordered mine during the recent Sephora VIB sale and it's not much more expensive than my HG cleanser, DHC deep cleansing oil. You will need cotton rounds to use this though, so I plan on alternating between this spa water, the DHC and Simple makeup remover wipes depending on how quickly I need to remove my makeup. I'd definitely repurchase!
Excellent, gentle but thorough make-up remover. This is one of the rare products that does not sting my very sensitive eyes and really takes every last trace of makeup off my face without it feeling overly dry. I am very fussy about product endorsements as I try out LOTS of them , and this is, by far, the best makeup remover I have used yet.
Recently received samples of this cleansing water and was curious to see how it measures to Bioderma Sensibio my HG-
First, I am extremely finicky when it comes to smells and this is very refreshing light. Second, this does take off makeup and leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh.... I would but this, but I recently ordered 2 huge bottles of Bioderma I will be finishing those before buying this.
How does it compare to Bioderma, its about the same, they both dont break me out, they both are refreshing and clean off all my makeup. Maybe there is something more with the 'spa water' benefits that I would feel over time. But with only days of samples its impossible to say.
Either way 5 stars- great product and highly recommended
