Review : Pixy UV Whitening Gentle Cleansing Express

Recently, I have been wanting to look for my Etude House Cleansing Dream Cleansing Water because it is quite expensive for a makeup remover. It does remove my makeup well, but I just wanted to look for another cheaper option of a makeup removing water. I do try to substitute all of my beauty arsenals to drugstore items, good ones of course! 

When I went to MGK Hypermart for the usual weekly grocery shopping with my bf, I stumbled on the new line from Pixy called UV Whitening and Acnebrite. Apparently, the UV whitening is for dull skin and Acnebrite is for acne prone skin. They have new products starting from cleansers to pressed powder. I picked up the Gentle Cleansing Express fro the UV Whitening line since I rarely have acne anymore, thanks to Retin-A. After trying it out for a whole week, this is what I think of it.

Pixy UV Whitening Gentle Cleansing Express
Want a practical face cleanser that gives a brighter and more moisturized face? Claims to contain natural whitening powder for a brighter looking face and soya bean lecithin and vitamin C derivatives. Cleanses face, removes dirt, makeup, and excess oil  without making the face dry, leaving a clean and moisturized face.
The two variants of Cleansing Express from PIXY.
Water, PEG-7 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Butylene Glycol, Pachyrrhizus Erosus Root Extract,  Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Fragrance, Styrene/PVP Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Glycerin, Hydroxylated Lecithin, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract

How I Use It
I wet a cotton pad with the product and swipe it all over my face for total cleanliness. 
A small size of the product.
What I Like About It
  • It's available in most supermarkets, i.e. Hypermart.
  • It has 2 variants. One for dull skin and the other for acne prone skin. 
  • It's supeeeeeer affordableeee, at only IDR 12,000 for the smaller size.
  • The packaging is efficient as it has a flip-top and doesn't take too much space in my vanity.
Loving the packaging! ^.^
  • It's alcohol-free and irritant-free ingredients.
  • It removes all of my face products.
  • Only takes one cotton pad to remove all of my makeup.
  • It gives a fresh feeling on my face, it's not sticky at all.
  • It didn't irritate my face or broke me out with tons of zits

What I Hate About It
  • It has a perfume-y scent
  • It doesn't take off my eye makeup, i.e. waterproof mascara
  • It stings my eye a little bit
I used to love my Etude House Cleansing Dream Water for taking off my makeup because it's simple and clean. However, ever since I got this, I have been using this NONSTOP. It's insane how it can compete with my Etude House Cleansing Dream Water, but for a cheaper price. I highly recommend this for people looking for a makeup remover, but only for face product though. I think that eye makeup remover should be a separate product since the eye is a different area than the rest of our face. 

Final Rating 
Availability : 1/1
Packaging   : 2/2
Ingredients : 2.5/3 --> point deduction for the scent and the stinging sensation if used around the eye
Price             : 1/1
Effectivity    : 2/3 --> point deduction for not being able to remove eye makeup

Eight and a half out of ten
