Clean Sweep: Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

It’s going to be 105 degrees today. No… really. It’s too hot to wear makeup… and if you do… it’s definitely too hot to use a cleansing balm or oil to get it off your skin. Especially when you have oily skin like me.

So I traipsed over to the Beauty Supply store and gave the Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa water a test run. I was immediately impressed. Although it smells a little old school (like old fashioned lotion or something), it’s HIGHLY effective. One swipe and you’re done.

I tested it using a tip that I picked up from Lisa Eldridge (to soak cotton rounds and lay them on the eyes before sweeping the makeup away) and it worked like a CHARM. It leaves no residue on your face, and isn’t incredibly drying. I’m officially in love.

You remember the Kevyn Aucoin Mango Blush? Strong stuff, right? This spa water took it away with one swipe…

Really good stuff. Highly recommend it. Not cheap though. This bottle set me back $52. BUT It’s more than 16 ounces, and you need one pump to clean half your face. I’ve hardly made a dent in this bottle. There are two smaller versions of this cleansing water for $13 and $39 respectively. You can find out more about Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water HERE.
