As much as I know how important it is to double cleanse my face every day especially if I have makeup on, I don’t do it when I’m on the go – like when I want to solat while I’m out and about or when I’m traveling. It’s a bit of a hassle and my husband will be restless if he has to wait for me for more than 20 minutes. So I only used wipes or sometimes baby wipes to wipe off my makeup. It removes most of my makeup pretty well as I don’t wear waterproof makeup, but it doesn’t have that double duty cleansing. I could still feel the dirt and makeup residue clogging my pores, even after washing with water. But I still couldn’t be bothered to do the double cleansing steps! Not outside my home, that is.
PIXY, a brand by Mandom, just came up with a fuss-free, one step makeup cleansing solution for ladies on the go. There are 2 types of makeup cleansers in the cleansing series and you get to choose which one that best suits your needs.
There’s the PIXY Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion and PIXY Single Step Liquid Foam For Makeup. These two removes makeup, cleanses and moisturizes the face quickly and effectively without the need for double cleansing. Perrrfect for on the go!
I was given a few bottles to try and brought them with me for my recent trip to Jakarta. The small bottles fit nicely in my makeup bag and it’s handy, so you can bring it anywhere with you.
The Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion (transparent bottle) is like a regular makeup remover but it takes off everyday makeup in a jiffy and doesn’t require double cleansing. You just need to saturate a cotton pad with the cleansing lotion and gently wipe it off your face. I like to start with my eyes by the way, because that’s where I have the most makeup on.
The Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion would be particularly convenient for active ladies who need to remove makeup – say, before a gym session, or even after a long tiring day. It doesn’t always happen to me, but on those rare occasions when I’m too exhausted/sleepy, I couldn’t be bothered to do anything but pass out on the bed with my makeup on (and then I’d wake up feeling guilty). At least with this cleansing lotion, I can remove my makeup before going to sleep (only took 30 seconds or so!) instead of sleeping with my makeup on. It’s moisturizing and I don’t feel the tightness like some other makeup removers that I’ve tried previously.
The Single Step Liquid Foam For Makeup (pink bottle) is a combination of makeup remover and facial foam. It’s like doing double cleansing, except in a single step. Which means, you can use it on the eye area as well. How convenient!
All you need to do is squirt a small amount on the palm of your hand, mix it with a little water and lather it up until it becomes foamy. Then massage it all over your face, rinse it off and you can continue with your wudhu (well, I imagine using this before performing solat – why else would I want to remove my makeup when I’m out and about right?).
PIXY cleansing series claims to keep the skin feeling fresh, soft and radiant as the key ingredient is honey. Honey is known for its natural moisturizing properties and this cleansing series is gentle on the skin and can even be used repeatedly in a day without drying the skin. They are also based on Japanese formulation and are clinically tested to remove makeup effectively while leaving the skin soft and supple.
I think it’s a great on-the-go, hassle-free makeup remover solution for women and it’s ideal to have in the handbag. This cleansing series by PIXY is available at major retail outlets, chain pharmacies and hypermarkets at only RM7.90 for 50ml and RM13.90 for 100ml. You can browse their website or their Facebook page to get more info about their products.
