English Instruction

The texture is green gel, the consistency is just like a jelly lotion. I used it by applying and massaging my face to dissolve the make up and then I wiped my skin using facial cotton. 
The cleansing power is not that impressing. I have to follow by facial wash coz this gel leaved residue on my skin.

Side of the box

After 4 days using it, I noticed tiny little pimples popped out on my cheek. Well, I was not changing any other products that I used except the cleanser, so it must be this biokos which was causing it.
Be careful if u have sensitive skin or allergic to witch hazel, u may not suitable using this.

Pros :
- did not dry my skin
- moisturizing

Cons :
- greasy after usage
- can't quickly remove heavy make up
- leaving residue
- triggers little pimples to come out on my skin
- strong smell

Repurchase? No. I can't say much but I'm sure this product is not for me.

Have u ever tried Biokos before? Is there any of them which is becoming ur favourite? Tell me ur opinion about this brand, I'd love to hear from u, my lovely readers^^

* End of review *

Little bit spin-off about the bitterness of my life.
I'm sorry, U can skip this part. I just want to spill the grudge in my mind.
Actually today, I'm unhappy. I skip my work because I don't feel well. I've been suffering from flu and  headache for 4 days until now. Yes, in this month many people got flu because of the seasonal transition (from shiny season to rainy). Yesterday I still could go to work but today I really feel exhausted and feel my fever intolerable for me to go to work so I definitely need a bed rest. But bed rest can be so boring so I decide to do a little bit blogging while I'm sitting on my bed.
Beside being attacked by flu and a bit fever, actually I'm kinda stressed out. Sadness, fear, worry, and many thoughts about this gloomy side of world I live fulfilling my head.
One of those bothering my mind is that I found my working environment is pretty much toxic lately. Not only because many of the staffs got flu and the high pollution from workshop area but also the social and working environment are not healthy.
When people entered a place and the longer time they spent on the place, the more their attitude and personality worsened than before. Then we can assume that the environment is toxic. I can't deny the opinion that the place where we spend alot of time in it can affect us. Either it's better or worse...
And that's how I feel...
Sometimes I ask my self, just when I started to become like this, to think like this and to behave like this... Should I walk my future in a place like this?
Guess I need to figure out my true self and fix many things in me. 
I hope God will lead me to better options and give me strenght to always remember Him and not to cross His lines in everything I do...
Hope I can find a way or better place that can make me to be better peson than I am now...

Think that's enough for me babbling out. See u on my next review :)
