Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover Review

Hey dolls, 

 

I was spring cleaning last week, and i found some makeup products from my summer spent in Singapore. One of the products i was most excited to try was the Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover.

I find that the best way to use this product is to use your fingers, instead of the usual cotton pad, and rub gently on your eyes.  This makeup remover has great moisturising properties. It is transparent with almost liquid-like substance and theres no scent. 

I usually use a few drops and massage it on my eye area and you can immediately see the results. The makeup remover does a really good job at removing all traces of makeup, however i feel that it can leave your skin feeling a little oily. I also found that if this makeup remover got into my eye, it irritates it. 

 

It comes in a big pump bottle of 230 ml and is made in Japan.

I really like using this product, however im not too sure if i will re-purchase.

EcoTools Brushes Review – Buffing Brush & Angled Eyeliner Brush

Hey dolls,

so ive been debating with myself about the best way to apply makeup. After careful consideration and research, a few weeks ago, i finally caved and bought a brand new set of make-up brushes.

What brand did I end up buying? Well, i was walking around the store wondering which brand would be the best, while taking into consideration of the quality and prices.

The one brand which caught my eye was EcoTools. (I purchased mine at Boots)

One of the first things that drew me to this brand was the fact that EcoTools are all about being green and helping the environment. EcoTools is a member of 1% For The Planet, which is a group of businesses who support environmental initiatives. Not only does EcoTools  donate 1% of their annual revenue to environmental causes, their products are also 100% cruelty free, using natural elements to stay as green as possible. Their cosmetic brushes are made from sleek bamboo, recycled aluminium and synthetic taklon bristle.

If you know me, you would know that Im all about protecting the environment and I absolutely love companies that give back to the environment/society.

The packages that the brushes come in are simple and super convenient as they come in little resealable pouches, the back of the pouch has instructions on how to use the brush and they even have a “Green Tip” on the back of each.

I thought I would start my brush collection with my two most used brushes:

Buffing Brush

I bought this brush because I wanted a buffing brush to blend my concealer and foundation. One of the good things about this brush is that it blends out any harsh lines perfectly without blending it out too much and loosing the desired coverage, leaving the skin looking natural.  I find the bristles very soft and dense, which is perfect for distributing my foundation or bb cream evenly without any streaking. Size wise, i find that its just the right size thus allowing easy control and application.

Angled Eyeliner Brush

Before using this Eyeliner brush, i was using a Maybelline eyeliner brush. I find that with the Maybelline, it was difficult to draw thin lines as the brush was too thick. After switching to this bamboo angled eyeliner brush by EcoTools, i found that it is just perfect for applying eyeliner. As the bristles are extremely soft, it makes the process of applying eyeliner smoother. The bristles are also very define, allowing the user to have absolute control over the brush, thus better control over the thickness of the lines, and build up if necessary.

Ive washed both brushes several times and the bristles in both brushes have stayed in place, there was no dividing that you may get with other brushes and theres is no shedding at all! It always dries smoothly and quickly.

Overall, I LOVED my two brushes and will definitely be getting more of their brushes. Not only do they help with the environment, they also have nice packaging with very useful and beautiful brushes.

Hope you have found this review useful!

What make-up brushes do you guys use?
