Review – KohGenDo Cleansing Spa Water

Spa water. Doesn’t that just sound appealing and luxurious? However, that’s kind of misleading. When I first saw this I thought of something like MAC Charged Waters– a glorified water spritz. However, this is actually a makeup remover! Cool!
The KohGenDo website has some very simple step by step instructions…I’m including them because they are adorable.
It’s not rocket science…you wet a cotton pad and have at it. They suggest holding it against your skin for a few seconds before wiping (similar concept to holding nail polish remover on your nail to let it kind of soak in and dissolve the polish, I suppose). I was intrigued by this makeup remover because of 2 things:
1. Ingredients. It has no oil, no alcohol, and lots of good things like mineral water, extract of lavender, sage, rosemary, ginger root…it just sounds so…healthy. Like these are ingredients I could see also being in some frou-frou tea in the organic grocery across the street from my office. There’s also xylitol in it, and I’m not sure why that would be good to have in a makeup remover, but it’s good for your teeth so I guess it must do something good for your skin too?
2. Convenience. It removes all your makeup and cleanses your face and requires no rinsing. So basically, it’s good for lazy people. ;)
The result? Look Ma, no residue! It really does remove all of my makeup (I followed up with another remover to test– nope, nothing left!) and left no sticky residue. Just soft, smooth, bare skin. I’m hooked.
KohGenDo Cleansing Spa Water retails for $35 for 300ml, but right now you can get a special edition larger size from their website.
Not sure you’re ready to take the plunge? That’s ok. KohGenDo will send a free sample of the Cleansing Spa Water to you if you live in the US, Canada, or Mexico! Simply visit this link and sign up. 1 per person!
