REVIEW: Sephora’s Sample Bin Pays Off!

Jenni Reviews Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

One of my favorite things about Sephora are the sample bins lining both sides of you as you wait in line to check out. They are filled with products that Sephora is ‘testing out’ to see how they sell in that particular store. I always buy a few things because I’m always in search for great new products and I love the smaller sample sizes available in these fantastic bins at Sephora. It’s such a great treat when one of these “samplers” turns out to be a wonderful product. Well, this happened to me recently when I picked up Koh Gen Do’s Cleansing Spa Water – Makeup Remover.

After just my first time using, I instantly knew that I would be re-purchasing the full size.  This cleansing spa water is incredibly good at removing makeup, all makeup, without any aggressive rubbing and without stripping skin or irritating eyes. It feels unbelievably clean & refreshing as it touches my skin, and it contains no oil or alcohol in it. The directions say you don’t even need to wash your face after using the cleansing spa water, and in my experience you really don’t – but I always wash my face after wearing makeup regardless of if I’m using a “no rinse required” makeup remover.


What it is:  A mineral makeup remover made with botanical extracts.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

  • Sulfates
  • Synthetic Fragrances
  • Synthetic Dyes
  • Phthalates
  • GMOs
  • Triclosan

Koh Gen Do Says:  Remove Makeup While Nourishing Your Skin!  Gently remove even waterproof makeup and skin impurities in a single sweep with mineral-rich Cleansing Water.  From the Yumura Hot Springs in Izumo, Japan, comes pure water, rich with skin-absorbing nutrients, to replenish and rejuvenate as it cleanses.  White Birch Sap, harvested only three weeks in early spring, contributes an abundance of minerals and xylitol as it lifts off makeup, oils and residue. No washing or rinsing required!
Perfectly convenient for on-location makeup artists and busy on-the-go women.  Oil-free. Alcohol-free. Safe for contact lens wearers.  Infused with six essential herbs to protect and nurture skin:

  1. Rosemary Leaf Extract
  2. Sage Leaf Extract
  3. Lavender Extract
  4. Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract
  5. Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract
  6. Ginger Root Extract

Directions:  Use as part of your daily routine.

  • Saturate cotton pad with Cleansing Water
  • Close eye and place cotton on lid. After a few seconds, sweep cotton across lid from the top downward
  • Wipe cotton under eyes starting from the inside moving outward. Sweep gently across face to remove makeup.
  • For specific small areas, saturate a cotton swab

Helpful Hint:  Place saturated cotton on area of makeup removal and hold for 3 – 5 seconds before wiping.
