Nichido Moisturizing Makeup Remover



I have been loyal with the Island Basics Makeup Remover; but when I asked my office mate if she's got a stock of the makeup remover (since I buy my Island Basics products from her), sadly, she ran out of it. So, I need to find an alternative which won't be expensive but will still do the job. Where else would I go but to Watsons. Thus, I found this makeup remover from the Nichido shelf.


"Unscented, effective, moisturizing and non-greasy makeup remover that easily and thoroughly removes makeup from face." For only P198, you can have 100mL of this product from any Nichido shelf. Like what I have said, I bought mine from Watsons and ain't it really affordable? 


The Good Bits:


MAC Satin in Mocha | G-Lish Cream Eye Shadow | Love & Beauty Eye Pencil | Kawaii Liquid Eyeliner

With just one swipe! ;)
First of all it's inexpensive. It's the first thing I loved about this product. True enough, it's unscented so for those who are very particular with regard to the scent. With just one swipe, it really did remove the products as you can see in my swatch. Plus, this makeup remover would really do well on people with dry facial skin. As the label says, it's moisturizing and one of it's ingredients is mineral oil. 


The Bad Bits:


Look at how unreadable the packaging is :s
Since it's inexpensive, expect the packaging to be not so classy-looking. I don't like how the label is quite hard to read; although this being blue is really interesting. Another thing is that because it seems like it has a thin formulation when I shook it, I disregarded the fact that it's oil-based. Wait, I didn't disregard it, I really didn't read the ingredients because IT'S HARD TO READ. LOL. 


Over-All:


Swatch on my hand

Swatch on a cotton pad
This product works; but it's just not the right kind of makeup remover for me. Disregarding the fact that it's for people who have dry skin and I have an oily skin, I'd be giving this product a 7/10. Please make the label more readable so that impulsive people like me won't be tricked into buying a product which is not made for my skin type. LOL. Aside from that, it really does work well when it comes to removing the product off of your skin.

  1. I have oily skin too so maybe it's not the best one for me but I'm looking for a cheap makeup remover since I always put makeup on whenever I go out. I wonder how it performs with super water-proof mascaras and eyeliners. The ones I use are super hard to remove. Maybe I'll check this out... It's inexpensive anyway. Haha! nice review! cheers! :D

    1. If only I knew that it is oil-based I wouldn't have bought it but it does the job so, maybe, I can stick with it for awhile :)

  5. I agree with the labelling-they should have mentioned if it's Moisturizing for all skin types- remover for the eyes, lips or face?--but i dont think that is suitable for the Face. I have oily skin and i'm using oil-based make-up remover for my waterproof mascara.. mostly of my eye/lip removers were labeled like with"moisturizing and non drying" as well, but i'm not bothered to use them, even i have an oily sensitive skin.. since i will only be using it on my eye area--it will not do any harm since our eye area needs more hydration than the other part of the face. Though to remove my foundation/facial make-up, i'm only using non abrasive cleanser like cetaphil or cleansing oil or the cheaper one "Cleansing milk" from dermaline then i followed with my treatment facial wash for my oily sensitive skin. (double entry, i deleted the other)

  7. I've actually seen this alot when I drop by the Nichido counters yet it doesn't appeal to me that much...mukha kasing cologne rather than a make up remover LOL. I'll try to give this a shot though even though I have oily skin..

  8. I have oily skin too so I don't think I'd like this for removing foundation.. >.< I think I'd give this a go as an eye make-up remover though.. :)
