I just purchased this makeup remover from Sasa, one of their inhouse brands: Cyber C'kin EX All-in-1 Moisturising Cleansing Water.

My previous brand was Haruhada Collagen Moisture Cleansing Water and I was planning to purchase a replacement bottle but Haruhada's one was so large and took up too much real estate in my travel luggage. I never got to finish it despite using it to the best of my wastage abilities lol. That's not a bad thing though, but since Cyber C'kin had a promotional offer at 40% off (making it a dollar more expensive than Haruhada... I paid about $18.90 compared to $29.90) and the sales promoter was pushing it, and it was a better size, and the ingredients looked ok, I decided to try it out.

First off this is a non-oily cleansing water, so it will not remove waterproof make-up. I use this primarily to remove foundation mineral powder and maybe sunblock. No rinsing is required but I do it if the humidity irritates my mood. It does not have parabens but contains other chemicals which you may be sensitive to. It is perfume-free, so it has a typical scent you get from perfume-free products... I would call it a waxy smell with a hint of chemicals?

Made in Japan, it removes powdered makeup easily, I seldom use thick layers so one to two cotton balls are enough to rid my face of gunk. It doesn't tighten the skin nor make it oily or sticky, depending on your climate. It has a humectant feel if you have ever used hyaluronic acid products, you will know what I mean... so one of the positive thing about this remover is its hydrating properties.

Ingredients: Aqua butylene gycol, PEG-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, 1,2-hexanediol, caprylyl glycol, allantoin, sodium citrate, PCA ethyl cocoyl arginate, citric acid, sodium hyaluronate, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, sodium PCA, saxifraga sarmentosa extract, rosamarinus officinalis leaf extract, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, glycyrrhiza glabra leaf extract.


To remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner, I use the Cyber Colors Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:

As you can see, this is not a new bottle as it is more than half gone, I have had it for some time. This is effective at removing waterproof makeup (probably better ones out there but this satisfies). The most important thing is, it does not sting even if it gets into my eyes! So soak a good amount into a cotton and leave it on your eyelashes for a while to dissolve the mascara, and wipe/dab off. It rids eyeshadow and non-waterproof eyeliner easily. For waterproof mascara (note I do not use a lot of mascara) I usually do a second round to completely get it off. My first eye makeup remover in the late 1990s was by Fasio, and boy did that burn!

Cyber Colors remover is blue & clear, you'd have to shake it before using as the oil & base solution separate if left unshaken. It is moderately oily but nothing that bothers me since I wash my face right after.

Ingredients: Water, cyclomethicone, isohexadecan, dimethicone, poloxamer 184, ginko biloba leaf extract, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, cucumber extract, angellica archangelica root extract, camellia oleifera extract, hexylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, sodium chloride, sodium citrate, butylene glycol, benzyl alcohol, citric acid, benzalkonium chloride, disodium EDTA, green 6
