maNara Hot Cleansing Gel Review

I’ve received the maNara Hot Cleansing Gel from the kind folks at Best Buy World to try out about a month ago.

The maNara Hot Cleansing Gel is the No 1 product in pore cleansing and as we all know, all No 1 products from Japan is of quality.

So why is it called a Hot Cleansing Gel?

Used with dry hands on dry skin, the maNara Hot Cleansing Gel gives a warm thermal effects as you rub the gel on to the skin gently. This warming effect is gentle and helps to open up our pores and cleanse it. It’s very similar to having our face steamed during a facial before extraction. Just that this is way gentler on the skin.

Made with 100% natural essential oils, this cleansing gel calms the skin and it’s refreshing grapefruit scent acts as a perk up during the cleansing process.

This is the amount of product recommended for each use, about 6 cm. One tube at 200g is able to last for 2 months.

Efficiency As A Makeup Remover

It removes the base makeup well and leaves no residue. But it’s rather weak at removing eye makeup, especially waterproof products. So it is recommended to use a separate eye makeup remover to remove the eye make.

Efficiency As A SkinCare

After 1 month of usage, I do notice that the blackheads on my nose is slightly lesser and they do come up a lot easier as compared to before using maNara. I only use this at night to remove my makeup and as it’s double up as a cleanser, I don’t have to double cleanse. It leaves my skin supple and moisturized too. I also like how gentle it is on the skin as a double cleanser.

I would rate this product a 4/5 stars.
