Alovivi Purevivi Cleansing Lotion

As far as materialism goes, July is looking to be pretty plentiful. I best get started on the mildly scented Purevivi Cleansing Lotion before my basket (of products to play with) teeters on the brink of overpopulation.

Name: Alovivi アロヴィヴィ Purevivi ピュアヴィヴィ Cleansing Lotion クレンジングローション
Price: RM 48.90 for 500 ml
@cosme rating: 4.9
Release date: 2.4.2012
Made in: Japan

My mouth gaped wider with each ingredient typed out. This list belongs to a lotion and not a makeup remover. Take a look if you don't believe me! That said, it works awfully well for something that looks like water, feels like water and well... smells better than water? Haha!

It takes 30 seconds at the very least of keeping the saturated pads over the eyes in order to lift all traces of tenacious waterproof makeup. It is so gentle that I find myself with no complaints of fogginess nor stinging. That said, some might be put off by the time needed to take all the makeup off and are not willing to wait it out.

It is far more effective as a base makeup remover. No waiting time here, just swiping motions and I am done. My only gripe is the amount of cotton pads needed - at least four pieces are needed per session. With this cleansing lotion around, I finish packs of cotton pads faster than the norm.

I proceed with a cleanser afterwards even though it is said to be a no-rinse product. Yeah, I practice the double cleanse method because I am paranoid (haha!) and I have been repeatedly drilled that a thorough cleansing regimen is a must to remove every last smidgen of impurity.

Here is it pitted against Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50+ PA+++, Etude House Play 101 Pencil and Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick (from left).

Splatterings of makeup.

Saturated cotton pad slapped on top of makeup.

Voilà, free from makeup!
