Hello my beauties
I hope you all are doing well and had a great Valentine’s day. Happy Valentine’s day my beauties. I know I am late but nevertheless wishing each one of you loads of love and laughter. My today’s review is about makeup remover, basically micellar water. It’s by the brand called Kaya Youth. And I have with me Kaya youth oxy-infusion micellar water.
As we all know Kaya is a famous skincare brand. The products of kaya are little pricey than their new range of Kaya Youth. This oxy-infusion range was launched some time ago and now recently they have launched hydro replenish range. I will soon get my hands on the new range. So let’s get into the review.
Price of Kaya Youth Oxy-Infusion Micellar Water:
Rs. 199 for 100 ml.
Claims of Kaya Youth Oxy-Infusion Micellar Water:
This product claims to be a gentle cleanser and a makeup remover. Every time you remove makeup, chemicals take a toll on your skin stripping off moisture and glow from the skin. It is said to contain tiny micelles that draw out dirt and makeup, without drying your skin. Thus leaving our skin clean, well hydrated and refreshed glow.
It comes in a white carton box with the kaya logo mentioned on it. Quite a cute packaging with pink and greenish-blue color. Once you open the box, there is a transparent bottle consisting of light blue color micellar water. The interesting part is that it comes with a pump-spray.
Ingredients of Kaya Micellar water:
The following are the list of ingredients. I am happy that there are no parabens and no sulfates in it.
Directions for use:
It can be used in 2 ways
- Cleanser: spray directly into the wet face with eyes closed. Massage onto the skin. Dab with cotton or wipe it off. Then rinse with water.
- To remove makeup and cleanse: Apply it to the skin with the help of a cotton pad and then rinse off with water.
What is my opinion about Kaya Youth Oxy-Infusion Micellar Water?
I came across this range after watching a YouTuber video and thought of giving the micellar water a try as I was running out of my micellar water. I was quite happy looking at a reasonable price tag. It was on sale and I still got it at a lesser price.
First of all, I really liked the packaging, it comes in a pump dispenser. Very simple and cute. When I tried as a cleanser I applied around 4 to 5 spritz and massaged it on to my skin and wiped with a cotton pad. So after wiping as per the directions have to again wash it with water. Kind of double work. Cleansing can be done in several ways like makeup removal balms, or face wash. If you use a face wash just apply it on to skin massage and rinse it off. Its that simple. In this case, I feel most of the makeup goes only when you wipe it off with the cotton pad. But again the difficulty in removing eye makeup. Otherwise, it does not melt the makeup like a makeup remover balm. But is definitely more hydrating.
Fragrance according to me should have been gentle and mild. It smells like a clinical spirit. The fragrance choice is subjective, what I may not like others may like. So please don’t pounce on me.
When I use it as a makeup remover it did its job quite okay. I sprayed 3 to 4 times on my makeup removing pad. It removed the face makeup effectively. But while removing eye makeup faced some difficulty as it did not remove the waterproof make up easily. More cotton makeup removing pads and more micellar water were needed.
- Travel-friendly packaging.
- Affordably priced.
- Free from parabens and sulfates.
- It does not dry out the skin, as it is hydrating.
- It can be used in two different ways as a cleanser and as a makeup remover.
- Oxygen infused is quite an interesting concept to supply oxygen to the skin.
- Gentle on skin.
- I did not like the fragrance at all. A clinical spirit like fragrance.
- Difficulty in removing waterproof makeup.
- More quantity of the micellar water is needed than other micellar waters.
I am quite okay with the product except for the fragrance and as a cleanser, it did not work effectively. The concept is quite good: oxy-infusion. I would say do give it a try if you want a gentle makeup remover.
