Ridiculous.that's what I thought. But I bought some because I was low on bioderma. For the first time people say, what are you using because your skin looks amazing. Me, have amazing skin? I'm 40 with a history of cystic acne and rosacea. The only things I use are clarisonic machine with a dab of neutrogena every few days and this cleansing water. Random moisturizers and serum round out my skincare, when I remember to use them. So yeah, ridiculous expensive water that works. I bought because beauty look book said its good. She is reliable, that one. Anyways, now I have amazing skin. It makes me feel giddy. And thats worth more than any other makeup I can use. All I can say is, try it. It sounds unbelievable. I became a believer!

Niiiice! Consistency of water but removes all makeup, even eye makeup, with no stinging, no oily residue, no nothing. It's like magic.

Great stuff. I saturate a cotton pad with two pumps of the product, and wipe it across my face, removing foundation and blush first and then my eye makeup (I find that if I've worn a large amount of eye makeup I might have to remove it first with a traditional product like Lancome's). In the evening, I use this as a pre-cleanse before using my LMdB creme cleanser, although there have been many times where I have used the Koh Gen Do cleansing water on its own. It works wonderfully. There is a faint, clean herbal scent which I don't finding irritating. For a truly sublime experience, try the cleansing water with a Koh Gen Do's organic cotton pad.
On to the price. Yes, it is expensive, but so is Bioderma if you are purchasing outside of France (one should be wary of counterfeit Bioderma being sold for super low prices online--500 ml of real Bioderma sold in the United States costs at least $40). And the Koh Gen Do water gives skincare benefits that Bioderma does not. I purchase the Koh Gen Do in the 480 mL size at Barney's (it comes with a pump) for $52 which is the best price per mL out there. I get more than five months out of a half-liter bottle, meaning that a large bottle of Koh Gen Do costs about $10 per month. That's three cappuccinos at Starbuck's that I have to go without in order to afford this product. Easy enough. And Koh Gen Do products are categorically NOT tested on animals. This isn't urban lore, it's clearly stated on their home page.

This is a HG product for me. It's absolute perfection. It removes all of my makeup (from foundation to mascara) effortlessly. After using this, my skin always feels so soft... never greasy. I have really sensitive eyes, and while removing mascara or eyeliner, I've accidentally gotten some of this in my eyes... I've never experienced any discomfort or irritation as a result. It's amazing! Definitely worth checking out... especially if your eyes are sensitive like mine. I started out with the smallest size, just to test it out, and have since moved on to the largest size they have with the pump. It's great!

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.

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.
