I am challenging myself to put up more blog posts and not being too lazy... Today I am going to review on BIODERMA Sensibio H2O which is used for daily cleansing and removes make-up. Again I am reviewing on makeup removers again.
Previous review on other makeup removers:
BIODERMA Sensibio H2O is specially formulated for Sensitive, normal to dry skin. The Micellar Solution gently cleanses face and eyes. It claims to also remove water proof makeup.
More information on BIODERMA ➽ Click Here
My friend introduced this product to me last year when I visited her in Hong Kong, back then it has not been launched in Singapore. I took some from her to try out as it is considered pretty pricey for a water based makeup remover and I am also unsure of its efficiency in removing makeup.
My 1st impression of this product is AMAZED. I am amazed that this clear watery solution can actually remove my makeup. It looks like drinking water to me. It claims to be able to remove waterproof makeup, to my opinion, yes it is able to but you need to spend longer time removing the water proof mascara. One downside of this product, it actually sting you eyes BADLY!! I was like tearing like nobody's business so I still do not advise to use this as a eye makeup remover unless you feel like crying. I am not sure if its just my eyes being too sensitive but one of my friend shared the same thought as me...
I have repurchased this product at Guardian. BIODERMA sebium is for oily & combination skin which I believe it is in Green colour packaging. I chose the pink one because my skin is very dry and pretty sensitive at times.
❥How to Use
- Soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O and cleanse the face and eyes and/or remove any make-up.
- No rinsing is requires however, it is essential to dry your skin. Dry gently. Dab your face with a clean cotton towel.
- It can be used daily, morning and evening
I used this as an extra step to final cleanse my face after removing my makeup with Bifesta Makeup Cleansing Wipes. This is to make sure that my face is totally free from makeup residue as this is a very important step if you want to have clean and healthy skin. I will soak the cotton pad with Bioderma Solution and wipe my face gently and repeat until I don't see any residue on the cottom pad. 100% CLEAN!

I am back for more reviews... as you know I like to try new makeup removers to find which best suit me and of cos to determine which can actually fall in my holy grail makeup removers category.
I have reviewed on a few product previously, click on the links below if you are interested to find out what I think about them.
Today I am going to review on 2 makeup wipes that I have recently purchased and tried.
1. Bifesta Water Based Cotton Cleansing Sheets.
This product is similar to the Bifesta Cleaning Lotion that I have reviewed earlier but now the form of wipes which makes it more convenient especially for travel.
Each packet consists of 46 sheets which can last you for a month or maybe slightly longer depending on individual's usage.
Its gentle and fast removal of makeup makes it pleasure to use. (This I totally AGREE!!)
❤❤ The plastic closure also helps to retain the moisture of the wipes more efficiently compared to those resealable type.
2. Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
Each packet consist of 25 wipes which can last for about 20 - 25 days depending on individual's usage.
❥Information on Packaging
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
❤❤ This product claims to contain Vital Vitamins - Pro Vitamin B5 which actively restores, softens and smoothes skin. Contains no alcohol, Oil, Perfume and Colour. Dermatologically Tested and Approved. It also claimed that it is able to remove water proof mascara (I do not think that these wipes can remove waterproof makeup / mascara)
❤❤ For best results, gently wipe over eyelids, face and neck to cleanse the skin morning and night. Ensure pack is resealed to prevent the wipes from drying out.
❤❤ I am not impressed with this product. I personally feel that the wipes does not contain enough cleansing product to remove makeup efficiently and the wipes are pretty rough. I do not think that it is able to remove waterproof makeup or mascara. If you do not wear alot of makeup or waterproof makeup, this product can definitely do its job.
❤❤ The pack must be sealed back properly to prevent drying out of product.
❤❤ Will not repurchase this product and I would only use these wipes during light makeup days.
Thats all for my reviews today.. Hope you guys find it useful and definitely feel free to comment or request for reviews.

Lets start with some background of NARUKO...
NARUKO skincare was developed by Nui Er, one of the Taiwanese Beauty Expertise (you will know who he is if u have watched the popular Taiwanese women beauty program "Nu Ren Wo Zui Da").
The NARUKO skin care products are designed to be not only affordable but they are also formulated with the most natural ingredients. NARUKO's skincare products are environmental friendly as they are not tested on animals. All NARUKO skincare products comes in an environmentally-friendly packaging. The boxes are designed to be simple and elegant on the outside but with beautiful floral prints inside. All boxes can be re-fold into little reusable box or containers.
NARUKO skincare products are also free from artificial colouring and fragrance and also parabens.
Enough of the background of NARUKO. Lets move on to the 2 products that I own.
NARUKO Narcissus Total Defence - Make-up Removing Mousse
This product is a oil-based make-up remover that transform for liquid into foaming mousse instantly upon one pump. The rich foam rapidly dissolves dirt and makeup, and at the same time deep cleanses the pores. It contains narcissus bulb extract and the patented Phytoferulin complex that revitalizes the skin. The residue-free formula leaves the skin soft, smooth and clarified.
The mousse is very fine and lathers up pretty well. Its does not leave a oily feel after washing even though its claimed to be oil based... not dry either. It is capable to remove water proof face and eye makeup however, I recommend to use a separate eye makeup remover as this product stings when it accidentally gets into the eye. AND IT REALLY STING BIG TIME!! It has a very subtle smell to it, very flowery nice scent.
How to Use
1. Press about 3 pumps and massage onto the entire face.
2. Add water to emulsify and then rinse off.
This product is pretty decent to use and also affordable. Will definitely repurchase it when needed (trying out too many makeup removers). 4/5
NARUKO Narcissus Total Defence - Night Brightening Serum
This serum contains a unique skin brightener that provides advanced anti-aging ingredients which repair, restore and firm the complexion while you sleep. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin awakens with more radiance, glowing and youthfulness.
Skin feels supple, soft and brightened up the next day and the results is pretty obvious. Not much effects seen on reducing of fine lines or maybe there is but just not very noticeable. However, it really helps in brighten up the skin and there is significant difference when u use and not use the product. Have the same flora scents as the Make-up Removing Mousse. The texture of it is not oily and can be easily absorbed into the skin. Not tacky or stickiness at all.
How to Use
1. Press 1 - 2 pumps and spread over the entire face (I usually massage in circular motions).
2. Go To Bed!!
Definitely will repurchase it. I feel it acts as a very good foundation serum in helping to restore the skin. Also seen the brightening effect of this product. I would not say that it will make you significant fairer but it will definitely helps in brighten up the complexion and make u look more radiant in the morning. 5/5

Continuing from my previous blog post about the New Crocs New You Fashion Showcase 2012. Bloggers who attended this event were entitled a pair of Free Crocs and I have managed to choose mine the next day at Vivo City Outlet (cos I happened to go back there for lunch the next day with my hubby and his family so I took this chance to pick up my free pair of Crocs).
Its definitely hard to choose from the varieties available. I initially wanted to get MELBOURNE II LACE in Pink which 1st caught my eyes, love love love the casual design and the cute ribbon on it but I ended up choosing CARLISA MINI WEDGE and I chosen black colour among the 3 colours available (Black, Brown & Pink) as I thought it will be able to match most of my clothes even formal enough to go with formal work attire. (will upload some photos when I have a chance to take my OOTD with my new Crocs!!)
PS: I think I will go back and get the MELBOURNE II LACE someday!! I cant get over my obsession on the ribbon!!
WinWin's Choice of Crocs...
