Japan’s Leading Micellar Water Brand Launches A New Product | Clozette

Bifesta, Japan's most popular micellar water brand, is back with an innovative addition to its product range. Instead of just the usual cleansing ingredients found in your typical micellar water, the new Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water is said to be infused with enriching botanical oils that remove heavy-duty makeup while nourishing the skin.

If you're someone who easily gets a drying reaction from no-rinse cleansers or are currently suffering from dehydrated skin, then you should give Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water a try. It features three powerful botanical oils: sunflower oil (for a dose of vitamin E), lavender oil (anti-inflammatory), and rosemary oil (anti-ageing and antibacterial). What's more is that it's free of harsh chemicals, protects the lashes from falling out, and is non-greasy despite the inclusion of oils in its formula.

Last week, Bifesta had a botanical-themed pop-up activity booth in Singapore at the [email protected] We attended the event and saw the newly launched product in action. There was a demonstration where a woman dressed as Alice from Alice In Wonderland removed all traces of her heavy-duty makeup using the Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water. We can definitely see that the eye makeup was totally gone in just a few swipes!

Aside from that, there were also activity corners where guests were able to swatch waterproof makeup and test the power of Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water themselves. More fun games were also prepared for those who want to win a goodie bag.

The new Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water is now available at all leading pharmacies, supermarkets and departmental stores in Singapore. Stay tuned for news on its availability in Malaysia and the Philippines.

We were all taken by surprise by Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's impromptu Vegas wedding but it turns out the couple is planning a more elaborate and traditional wedding in France. Until recently, nobody had a clue on when it will happen. But it looks like it's now revealed thanks to Dr. Phil, who commented on Turner's latest Instagram post, saying, "Easy now! 1 week to go! Ha! See you at the wedding!" Could this be a slip-up or just a joke to keep us all hanging? We'll just have to wait and see.

When speaking of sophistication and class, the French will surely come to mind. It’s no secret that French women have a distinct style that exudes elegance in a very natural way — think style icon Caroline Maigret and actress Audrey Tautou. Which is why the French Chic hair trend is one of the most talked-about ones lately.

The French Chic hair trend is basically hair that’s styled into a bob or sometimes just before the ends touch the collar bones with wispy or side-swept bangs. The distinctly French aspect of it? It’s artfully tousled and messy. Simply put, it’s a “woke up like this” ‘do in a very gorgeous way.

It’s great for those who have diamond-, square-, and heart-shaped faces. For those with diamond-shaped faces, turn to Vanessa Hudgens for inspiration. If you have a square shape, Mandy Moore is the one to use as a peg. Heart-shaped? Taylor LaShae’s pics should be on your mood board.

To ace this style, one must remember that it must be au naturel (natural). Here’s how to do it.

Skip washing

Here’s the secret: wash your hair just a few times in a week to lock in moisture and give it volume. Keep in mind that this trend’s key characteristic is effortless beauty that’s artfully alluring. This also means you have to say goodbye to your blow dryer and invest in a good hair towel. If you can’t stand not washing your hair, dry shampoo will come in handy.

Use frizz-fighting, texturising products

Go for products that will banish frizz and keep your hair shiny and healthy such as these shampoos. The recently launched Shiseido Stage Works is recommendable for light styling, too, so you can use it for those “effortless” waves. 

Say no to heavy styling

The French Chic hair trend can roughly be translated to “low key” or “no styling needed.” If you wish to enhance the look, lightly use a curler to create more waves but make sure to brush the curls so they don’t look stiff. As much as possible, avoid hair sprays.
