Review: Neogence Clarifying & Hydrating Make-Up Removing Liquid

Neogence Clarifying & Hydrating Make-Up Removing Liquid 200ml  MYR 26-24 (Discounted )

Of late, I have been putting on make-up and honestly, I enjoy it! I am not those who wears heavy make-up with absolute heavy coverage, but with my essentials like concealer, pressed powder, eyeshadow, blusher and my absolute must: liquid eyeliner. 

Because of my oily lids, I need a heavy duty liner, to last at least for 5 hours. I have found one ( review coming up ) and you know how it is, heavy duty ones requires a good make-up remover to remove it. I used to like Lancome's Bi-Facil makeup remover, which I thought is the only best eye makeup remover in the world! However, I was not keen on the price, hence begin a look out for other alternatives...and I stumbled unto this at Sasa.

*I would like to note that this is not an organic product. Most of the ingredients are at the levels of 'low-moderate hazard' when crossed checked with EWG Skin Deep. So in other words, it is not hazardous to use.

My Experience

I initially tried this product when I bought a small 30ml bottle of this. After a few uses, I upgrade it to the full size. The product itself is liquid-y, and because it contains a lot of glycerin, you more or less would know the texture of it: slippery. Ironically, I detect no fragrance at all, even though it is stated in the ingredients listing. 

I usually remove my eye make-up, following Lisa Eldridge's way. All you need is just a size of 10 cent unto your cotton pad, gently press the cotton pad unto your closed eyes and leave it there for a couple of seconds. ( You may repeat the 2nd time again, with lesser amount of the liquid, if you find that there are still some remnants ). I find this way most effective, as it minimises tugging or rubbing at your eye area.

If I were to compare the Neogence with Lancome Bi-Facil, I would say that the effectiveness of removing stubborn make-up is of the same level. If you ask me for my preference between the two, I would say I like the Neogence one better. Why? I like that the formula is of oil & alcohol free. When I was using Bi-Facil, one thing I dislike most was the oily residue it leaves behind. Both your eyes will have that uncomfortable oily feeling, which makes it difficult to open. I am not sure if it's the oil or the other ingredients found in Bi-Facil but, this is how I felt. Unlike Bi-Facil's, I do not feel any irritations or any uncomfortable feeling when using Neogence.

Secondly, I love the price of Neogence. It is far more economical than Lancome's. Those on a tight budget or frequent eye remover users will appreciate this one.


This is definitely a 'yay' for me. It's effectiveness and price point won it for me. I have sensitive eyes and skin and this is friendly to those who have these. Economical wise, I am almost reaching half the bottle since I started using middle of last year. So, that says a great deal.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.
