I'm back with a review after soooooooooooo long!
I've been really busy with my life, being my last year in school as well as juggling two jobs at the moment.
Therefore, despite having so much to share, I couldn't make time =/
However, when I was approached to do a review for Purevivi's new Cleansing Lotion, I thought I had to take it up and make time to share my thoughts because this is a makeup remover, which is something that I use very often.
I'm sure I have said before that I use Bioderma in my instagram/twitter before but one of the thing that I feel kinda "ughh" about whenever I have to repurchase is the price. Thus when I heard about Purevivi, which is also a micellar water except that it is only SGD$19.90
and made in Japan, I HAD
to give it a go.
My "Is it really that good yet that affordable?" face
Before I jump into the review, here's some things you should know.
Purevivi Cleansing Lotion is a 4-in-1 micellar water makeup remover which:
- Dissolves makeup
- Cleanses your face
- Soothes your skin
- Moisturizes your skin
As aforementioned, it is priced at just SGD$19.90 for a generous 500ml bottle.
Sounds too good to be true? I'm not close to being done!
The product has 5 key attributes, namely:
- Effectiveness - Dissolves makeup quickly
- Clarity - Leaves skin feeling matt
- Freshness - Gives a feeling of freshness
- Texture - As gentle and light as water
- Made in Japan - Adheres to quality standard
It contains nine moisturizing natural fruit and plant extracts - Grapfruit, Lemon, Jujube, Apple, Orange, Lime, Cox Seed, Crataegus Cuneata and Aloe
It also has 6 Nos
My, can you believe it?
So much awesome stuff in one bottle!
Best of all, it is so easy to use!
For the sake of experimenting the efficency of the product, I intentionally put on heavy makeup.
I am only going to remove the makeup on the right side of my face to show you the difference!
All you have to do is purchase a bottle (the color looks murky here 'cos I have yet to unwrap)
Unwrap and prepare your cotton pad
Open it up
Smell it - no wait, that's just my weird habit.
Get some of the product on your cotton pad
I usually place it over for about 5 seconds for my eyes before swiping as I tend to have more stuff on my eyes than other parts of my face. Otherwise, I just swipe it off like that.
Tada! Just one swipe after 5 seconds and you can see that all my eyeshadow and most of my eyeliner is gone! The eyeliner left is where I tightlined, where I have to lift my lids a little to get it cleaned.
After my eyes, I proceed to the rest of my face.
I only used two cotton pads for half my face - 1 for my eyes and 1 for the other half of my face and lips.
If you got scared by the above picture, please remember I look like this when I go out and I am not scary
Jokes aside, I definitely see myself repurchasing another bottle after I am done because it is SO much more affordable and does the exact same thing! Sometimes after a long day out, I crash immediately instead of going to cleanse my face again with a cleanser because I am just too tired so I am really thankful that this product helps to moisturize my face after the makeup has been dissolved and removed. It works great and does a good job at the aftercare too - I cannot imagine how many pimples will surface the next day if not for this (since I get K.O-ed pretty often these days)!
So I guess what I'm trying to say is...
Go get a bottle today from selected watsons outlets and don't forget to follow on instagram them at purevivisg!
