On the day I drove to Penang, I received an email from Dr. Jart+ informing me that there is a new product in the market and if I would like to try it out. But, I thought Dermaclear Micro Water was launched not long after my first encounter with the product back in August 2014? A few days after I came back to KL, I realized I had forgotten to reply the email and I’ve exceeded the product collection date lol. I’m glad I’m still able to get a bottle to try out because this might just be the product that changed my whole perception and acceptance on the whole cleansing water craze.
Getting back to as why Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water was only brought in now and not last year. Well, Dr. Jart+ told me that the time I had my first hand on the product (August 2014) was just a preview on new product line-up. It is only April 2015 that Dr. Jart+ brought the product into Malaysia and sell it officially 🙂
Dr. Jart+ is a Korean skincare brand and Korean beauty has always been playing a major role in the beauty scene. It is now going to a different level by levelling new cleansing concept. Cleansing Water has always been a worldwide thing and the Koreans are catching up with the trend. Dermaclear Micro Water even won the Blind Test by No.1 the most popular beauty TV show in Korea, Get it Beauty 🙂
If you think “oh, this is just another cleansing water”, well think again. Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water is a ‘Micro’ Cleansing Water. What this means is, micro water is finer molecule that water and provides Nano molecule cleansing. With this, the product is able to clean away even the smallest residue from the face, tone the skin like no other cleanser does, brightens and moisturizes the skin like no other cleansing water do.
When I first got it, I thought like every person would think – this is going to be like a normal cleansing water. Boy was I so wrong. When I pour the product onto the cotton pad, I thought I was pouring water. I don’t know if it’s my imagination but I feel that the water is more finer aka watery than other cleansing water. The smell is amazing. One of the downside of cleansing water that I hate is the scentless scent that smells like chemical. This one? Doesn’t have any of that. It does has a slight hint of floral scent to it that I like very much.
This time round I decided to test it out against my eye makeup. As you are aware, I’m an avid believer in removing eye makeup separately using a proper eye makeup remover product. I was really curious with the performance of this product and I had makeup on that day. Talking about perfect timing 😀 . I saturate the cotton pad like how I would with eye makeup remover – pour bit by bit forming a straight line, place it on my eye, wiggle a bit and gently pull away. All the powder product came off and half of the eyeliner and mascara was gone too. I repeated the process with the other end of the cotton pad and everything came off in no time. It doesn’t sting even a bit and it doesn’t cause any redness to the eye. However, I do notice that if I saturate the cotton pad with too much product, the water gets into my eye and it irritates quite a bit. So the key is to go moderate and not oversoaking the cotton pad 🙂
People say woman can look scary once they had their makeup removed. I think I did pretty good with the Before and After. I don’t really put on thick makeup so even when I’m bare face, there is not much different. Or maybe it’s this Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water that helped to brighten and moisturized my skin.
I didn’t have any issue with removing all the base makeup from my face and lipstick from my lips. It feels absolutely comfortable on the skin without any tackiness thereafter. Some cleansing water still do leave a film on the skin or cause the skin oily thereafter and I’m very glad to say I didn’t encounter any of that annoying bit with Dermaclear Micro Water. Instead I get on with my chore and had totally forgotten to double cleanse. This is an all-round product that Cleanses, Tones and Moisturizes at the same time so no rinsing or double cleansing required. It is Non-Comedogenic so it suits all skin type, even for sensitive skin.
I usually prefer to use big cotton pad with cleansing water for the face but I ran out so I used a total of four cotton pads for the face and two for the eyes 🙂 . You might use lesser cotton pad but I like to be sure so I like to go over the whole face with a new cotton pad.
For someone that are not into cleansing water, I amazed myself lately by eagerly reaching for the bottle of Dermaclear Micro Water to remove my makeup. The soothing scent helped to calm me down and get the job done slowly and properly. I like that it doesn’t sting my eyes and removed ALL my waterproof eye makeup in a jiffy. However, I took the risk and tried to remove one of the toughest waterproof mascara, which is also my all-time favourite – the Estée Lauder Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara. As expected, it doesn’t quite remove the mascara and I lost tons of eyelashes in the process. That’s totally understandable because that mascara is the toughest to be removed. I’ve tried on Benefit Roller Lash and there’s no problem in removing. I also adore the product for being totally non-sticky and refreshing on the face. My acceptance towards cleansing water took a 360-degree change after trying this Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water 😀
