Product Description:

Instantly removes all traces of makeup, even waterproof mascara!
Enjoy the convenience of quick and easy makeup removal anytime, anywhere with Biore Cleansing Oil - In Cotton Wipes. Every sheet contains a light and smooth cleansing oil that effectively removes all traces of makeup that accumulate in pores without excessive rubbing. Skin feels fresh, soft and smooth!
  • Thoroughly cleanses without leaving any trace of makeup
  • Cleansing oil does not remain on skin so there is no greasy, sticky feeling after use.
  • Made from 100% natural fiber for a pleasantly soft touch on skin.
  • Contains moisturising agent that makes skin feel soft, smooth and supple, not tight.



Texture and Scent:

This makeup remover sheet is rather thick (but still quite soft), so it feels quite nice against the skin! :) Despite being "cleansing oil-based", it doesn't leave an oily film on the skin after using it, which is really nice! I also like how it doesn't ball up into a gadzillion cotton bits after wiping around:

This has a rather strong floral scent to it, and it tastes pretty funky - I would definitely recommend washing your face and lips thoroughly after using this product! Haha! :D


This makeup remove wipe comes in two forms - in a refillable plastic box of 48 sheets and a travel pack of 10 sheets.

Let's start with the plastic box! This is how it looks brand new and unopened:

And after you peel off the packaging, this is how it looks like:

The plastic box feels really sturdy and well made, which I really like. And it's PINK! Haha! :D The plastic lid lifts easily although it shuts close snugly. I've elected to keep my wipes sealed in the foil pack to maximize its shelf-life so I don't know how effective it is at keeping the wipes from drying out!

Refill packs come in a plastic / foil pack:

Which you peel off the cover:

And pop it back into the box like so:

Tada - wipes at your convenience! Lol! :D For true convenience, I would highly recommend purchasing the travel pack:

It comes in a plastic / foil pack (much like a wet tissue packet) that fits in your handbag nicely:

Lift the seal and tada, mascara-run saviour! :D

Time Test:

As mentioned above, I keep my box of wipes sealed in its foil pack, so I don't know how long it will remain effective otherwise. As for the travel pack, I've had a pack opened for almost 6 months, and it's still pretty moist! :D

Price & Availability:

The full sized, refillable box cost RM32.90 (approx. US$10) each. Refills cost RM25.90 (approx. US$8.48) for 48 sheets and the travel pack (of 10 sheets) cost RM6.90 (approx. US$2.12). This is available at Watsons, Guardian, Caring and some supermarkets! :D

My $0.02:

This entry took me yonks to write... I never had the right photographs to showcase how much I love these wonderful wipes until now!! Haha! :D Ok, after the super long intro above and bombing your bandwidth with so many pictures, I'll do less talking and go straight to the point:


Pictures to prove - let's start with my makeup plastered face:

Foundation: L'Occitane Sublime Beauty Cream in Light
Powder: Pond's Magic Powder
Cheeks: NARS Torrid
Brows: Daiso Auto Brow Pencil
Eyeshadow(s): MAC Smoke and Diamonds, MAC Charred, MAC Unbasic White
Eyeliner: Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black Brown
Mascara: Maybelline the Rocket Volum' Express Mascara
Lips: MAC Kiss Manish! :)

And here's a side by side comparison after using the wipes on one side of my face:

A closer look - Eyes:


All traces of makeup gone!! There's no oily residue too! Major love! :D

In a nutshell, I'm really loving these wipes - they're affordable and they WORK beautifully! You'll need to go at it a few times before it removes all traces of waterproof mascara, but then again, you shouldn't be tugging at your eyes like that - use a separate remover! Lol! :D I'll definitely repurchase these! :)

Have you tried these wipes before? Do you like them? :)
