Review: Bifesta Cleansing Sheet #Moist

Hi everyone! Today, I am gonna throw in a really simple review on a popular cleansing wipes I got from Watsons - the Bifesta Cleansing Sheets in Moist. I've tried their points makeup remover before and was really impressed with their gentle yet effective cleansing power, hence was not hesitated to reach out for their cleansing wipes when I needed one.


The one I chose was the pink moist version of it. It is said to be a water-based makeup removing tissues or "cotton wipes". Local importer very kindly include English description at the back. 




All the wipes were neatly folded. Most Japanese products I bought, including their foods are always so neat that I wonder how they manage to do that.



Even after you finished it, the whole thing will still retain it shape neatly! Lols!

INGREDIENTS 
(CosDNA)

Water, Alcohol, Glycerin, PPG-75-PEG-300 Hexylene Glycol, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Diisostearate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Sodium Citrate, Disosdium Edta, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Dihydroxypropyl Arginine HCL

This cleansing sheets contain mostly safe ingredients, except for the surfactants and preservatives.

Surfactants are things used to degrease, emulsify oils and fats, and suspend oil so that they can be washed off. These are ingredients used in your cleanser, body wash, shampoo and so on. Although they are not irritating or acne-triggering, I find them a bit harsh on my skin. So, sensitive skin folks might want to reconsider before buying. I find Simple Cleansing Tissues a gentler approach to facial wipes but those are not the perfect candidate for a lot of makeup. So, some pros and cons here.

Nothing particularly bad or worrisome in this cleansing sheets. I am fine with both phenoxyethanol and methyparaben as these are wet tissues, without proper preservatives, you'll be more worried about unknown bacteria growing on stuffs you are going put on your face than just the preservatives themselves. I don't want to go on details elaborating about why I am fine with methyparaben and phenoxyethanol but for those who are bothered, you can do some research and I'm sure you'll find a lot of useful information about it.


A few things it claims:
  • removes makeup thoroughly
  • skip makeup remover during tired nights and morning cleanser
  • no sticky feeling after using
  • leaves a moisturizing finish
  • can be used to remove errors during makeup
  • removes sunscreen during no-makeup days
  • soft cotton sheet that is gentle to skin
  • contains 46 sheets

What I think after using it for 10 months:
  • 10 months?!! yes, 10 months because I rarely makeup, and I have cleansing water, cleansing oil and cleansing balm at home. I use this primarily in the office
  • after 10 months, the cleansing sheets remains moist and nice; no quality drop observed
  • this is an effective makeup removing wipes, even for waterproof gel liner
  • this is not oily, and will not leave an oily residues on skin
  • the smell is unpleasantly strong, very chemical
  • the cotton sheet is soft when wet, but getting rough-textured when the chemicals inside it evaporates
  • it will leave a weird "moisturising" residue that I want to wash off - it is somewhat sticky
  • this tastes bitter after removing lipmakeup with this
  • one sheet is insufficient for heavy whole face makeup with foundation on
  • this is great for individuals who are suck at removing eyes makeup without rubbing eyes too much or getting the cleansing oil into eyes

CONCLUSION

There are pros and cons in this cleansing sheets, or makeup wipes whatever you call it. It's cheap given the effective cleansing power and quantity, but may not be my holy grail makeup wipes yet. If you are looking for a convenient, effective, neat (won't result in a mess), and affordable makeup wipes you can always give this a try; but if you are bothered with strong chemical smells, have sensitive skin, and really prefers makeup wipes without any residues, this may not be the one for you. It is not bad, but not good enough for me to make a repurchase.
