Bioré is a cosmetics brand that predominantly focuses on skincare. It is owned by the Japan based company Kao Corporation. Kao Malaysia has been established since 1973. The Bioré Perfect Cleansing Water is supposedly created with micelle technology that would dissolve and remove makeup (including waterproof mascara) gently without the need to tug on your skin. It is also alcohol-free, oil-free, colourant-free and fragrance-free. All great for sensitive skin.

I have included pictures on how well the cleansing water works to remove makeup.
It does the job quite effectively. However, removing matte liquid lipsticks requires a little more effort.
It leaves the skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
Does not have a sticky after feel as with some cleansing waters.
Doesn’t have an annoying scent or anything like that.
It tastes BITTER!!! (If you have used it on the lips to remove long wearing lipsticks or matte liquid lipsticks, I’d suggest rinsing your mouth first before you do anything else. If you accidentally lick your lips after having used this you are going to regret it. This cleansing water tastes bitter! Very bitter!)
After using it for some time, it has started to irritate my eyes.
This previously had a rating >8 but I have deducted points because it now hurts my eyes…
