Sponsored Review: Biore Aqua Jelly Make up Remover

Today's topic revolves around Biore new and improved Aqua Jelly make up remover - smoother, lighter consistency but with the same cleansing ability.

Removing make up is as important, if not even more important than putting them on. I bet you've heard this a thousand times. Shall spare you from my naggy genes.

Many people hyped about this jelly makeup remover from Biore already so this product probably nothing new to you right! I am so late hahaaa. Nevertheless, here's my two cents' worth. 

Erm and this post is quite narcissistic I can't even... I blame the usagi band.

Let's start!


The pump makes dispensing so effortless. I leave this in my bathroom as I don't have to worry about breaking it or whatnot.

It also comes with a cap.

One good thing about the cap is that it will not be too messy even if you travel with this jelly remover. The residue can be collected in the cap instead of transferring all over the place.

The new formula is so much more viscous than the older version. The old formula is pretty good but I never got around writing about it.... because.... I don't know. Anyhow, the new jelly make up remover is very light and easy to spread. No tugging of skin at all! It does not leave an oily film after you cleanse with water.

Stars: ★★


Cannot really describe the scent but it is something sweet yet light for the nose. People who are more sensitive to fragrances should pay more attention when testing this out.

Stars: ★★

Convenient to use

No cotton pad required! It is a tad tedious to get all the mascara out especially when you are using something very waterproof. Nonetheless 5 stars for being so lazy people friendly!

Stars: ★★

Cleansing properties

Which is the highlight. Very good for medium - full coverage make up removal.

PS, using a new mascara from The Face Shop! Super cheap but very good quality ^^

It can take off mascara, eyeliner and very longlasting lip colour. In short, everything.

Wiped over with Bifesta cleansing water after 2 pumps of Biore Aqua Jelly Remover.

I'm happy with what I see! (Almost) zero make up/dirt left on my face. Oh ya I will wipe off the remover with a tissue/cotton pad before washing - I find doing it this way makes my skin cleaner.

Stars: ★★


No tight feeling or whatsoever. My skin actually feels really soft and good. Because it is made with 40% more moisturising essence.

I will double cleanse just because I am so used to doing it but you can skip this step if you are feeling lazy. I will still advice you to double cleanse though!

Stars: ★★

Ok like all 5 stars LOL.

The Verdict

All in all, Biore products never disappoint. I like to keep this in the bathroom as it is so fuss-free to use. (No cotton pads!). I always have at least one wash off remover sitting in my bathroom shelf. However, majority of such removers do not perform up to expectation. Do note that it takes a little getting use to if you intend to use this as an eye make remover. I am not sure whether this will sting your eyes or not because I am extremely careful these days *beams*. No break outs or any stuff like that; cleansing effect is powerful; smells good and leaves my skin feeling nice and soft. It suits all skin types as well.

To me, this is a pretty normal make up remover. It is not something I will rave about all day and night  but it is something I am glad to have. Very glad. You don't know how happy I am to find something bathroom-friendly and effective (lightweight, not too bulky, sturdy, good cleansing power).

- Good cleansing power
- Remove make up thoroughly
- Very affordable
- Nice scent 
- Very smooth
- Skin is moisturised after use
