Personal Review of Ipsa Cleansing Gel EX

I (Cherry) used a sample of Ipsa Cleansing Gel EX. I am going to share its personal review of this product.

This cleansing gel is not a face wash. This is a male-up remover. IPSA says please use your face wash after this product.


I prefer oils to remover my make-up. I have used some gel make-up removers, and I dislike them, because it has too strong perfume/ smell of ethanol. I had thought it has also such kind of smell, but to be honest, there are less smell, and I found one smell, what reminded me oxydol (Hydrogen peroxide), it was not strong, and ok for me.

I applied it on my face, to massage softly to remove my make-up. When I add water, it gets pretty east to be emulsion. This is also good point.

When I rinse my face with water, I felt refresh, but my skin was well moisten. Good!

But my towel was colored my foundation. Oh no. It was Suqqu’s flame fix lasting pact foundation, and it is pretty easy to remove. Please remind one thing. I told you “IPSA says please use your face wash after this product.” yes, I have to use my face wash after this product.

My choice was Ipsa’s face wash (I will review about it soon). When I use this product after Fancl’s mild cleansing oil, there are no problem. But after this Ipsa’s gel, I found my cotton of Ipsa’s Metaborizer (I will review about it soon too) was colored my foundation!

At least this product is no good for the combination of sunscreen and Suqqu’s lasting pact foundation. When I would try my Lancome’s powder foundation, it would be different result. I prefer this product for powder foundation users.

Let me show you this item on my arm.

What I applied.

Sun Screen: Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen A+
Foundation Primer: RMK Make Up Base
Foundation: Primavista (formula of 2009 or so)
Eyeshadow: Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow (Momoawayuki, limited for 2012)

Left; before I wipe by this oil.
Middle; just after I wiped softly twice.
Right; done.

The Kate’s eyeliner is not waterproof, but still you can see them on the right picture. Actually, when I used my face wash, I could remove it well.
