It cleans off my water proof mascara. I love this product. Why so expensive?
I have sensitive active oil glands, so I should not be using anything oil based on my face, as it is very tough to wash off. When I read that it takes off water proof mascara I was so excited to try, but this does not take off my water proof mascara completely which defeats the purpose of having oil based cream on my face and worrying that it will give me milia seeds or something. I used Lancome Bi-Facil (HG) after i washed off with another make up cleanser, and saw that there was residual mascara on my eyes. This product does not work for me. DARN. It is so much cheaper than the Lancome Bi-Facil.
I love it!! I bought my second bottle :)) I do rinse again with Laniege of course, just to be extra safe. 2 months after my first review. This stuff has been clogging my pores as it is very difficult to wash off. I am using milk make up remover now... Will not buy again.

I have very oily skin, so i need 3 to 4 pieces to blot my face. I like it that it doesnt smudge my make up, but i have to keep pulling out more sheets, so... not sure if i will repurchase. I would if i really need blotting papers at the moment. Starbucks napkins do the trick just as well. And it is larger and freer and does not dry up my oily skin like the clean and clear blotting sheets which cause my skin to become oilier after that.
I LOVE it. It cleans my makeup off (light makeup) and makes my skin feel clean but not stripped bare, i have very oily skin, so i can't afford to have my skin stripped because then my oil glands will start overworking, so LOVE this!!
i really like this water mask. I have very oily skin that is also acne prone but ever since i listened to my beautician who advised me to hydrate my skin, i used this every other night, and my skin has really really improved so much. I used to start getting bumps on my face just 2 weeks after facial but ever since i started hydrating my skin, i can go facial after 4 weeks and my beautician also said my skin has fewer bumps! (i still hate facials though). YAY I use it with the strawberry yoghurt pack (but i use it every other day too) (: i LOVE Laniege!! This is one year later, I have realised that sleep-on masks are not as hydrating as gel mask. Try the Muji- high moisture gel mask, they are much more moisturising. Will not repurchase this again.

Good product. It really cleans off my Maybelline waterproof mascara without lash loss (unlike the Etude house one which claims to be very good yuck). I will definitely buy this or the Lancome bi-facil one. One complaint - when it got into my eye it got red for a while.

I read several reviews about the ABS and was very excited to try it! I am currently on Roaccutane and was doubtful that the ABS would be effective during this treatment. But when I used it, i was very pleasantly surprised that it didn't sting my face, but it made my face feel squeaky clean, and it didn't make my face red. I follow up with shea butter or egyptian magic and my skin feels GOOD! I don't recommend it as a makeup remover alone because for my problem skin, it'll be better to clean off makeup properly but i will always wash my face with ABS after my normal make up cleansing to ensure all the gunk is washed off. I will definitely re-order once my supply finishes! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't know for sure how effective it will be against blemishes when i'm no longer on Roaccutane. Keeping my fingers crossed... 17th July 2010: off roaccutane, breaking out once a month (hormonal), but i'm using ABS to remove makeup, cleanse twice a day. Am loving the squeaky clean feel =) Don't forget to tone and moisturize and go for facial b4 period comes! 20 Oct 2010: cut down on ABS, but use it once in a while. I am using Cetaphil for sensitive skin instead, and seriously applying hydrating gel mask on my face instead and it WORKS!!! My skin has stopped breaking out as frequently (used to be 2 weeks after facial, now i can go for facial after 4 weeks, and the bumps have also decreased) I have been struggling with acne problem for 15 years, i wish someone told me to go for regular facials and use HYDRATING GEL MASK so my skin will be less oily. I think it's really about listening and following through with advice. (: Happy!
