A total dud… Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover


I tried this product, based on this review below:

Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy. If you’re looking for a safe, all-natural, and effective anti-aging regimen you’ve found it in rice bran – a centuries old beauty regimen and the secret of the ageless Japanese complexion.

Benefit from the miracle that’s been around for centuries!

The Japanese have known for generations that the potent vitamins and antioxidants in rice cleanse, tone, tighten, and regenerate softer and suppler skin. Now it’s available in a highly concentrated unscented formula, along with other pure and all natural ingredients. No other product are available, at any price, with such a high amount of potent ingredients and no chemicals or artificial fillers. You’ll use less and see visible results sooner than other more expensive products.

TrueRenu does the searching – and researching – for you. We look for hard to find, hard working products that do what they promise, and we bring them to you with detailed descriptions. We like Komenuka Bijin for its high amounts of antioxidant rich rice bran, and other natural ingredients. Because the active ingredient is so dominant, you’ll see the benefits sooner – and use less.

Product Size: Net Weight: 100g, or about 3.5 ounces.

But let me tell you, I thought this product STUNK. It’s a makeup remover, shouldn’t it remove makeup? I wear black eyeliner at times, and this remover wouldn’t remove the liner. It left me with makeup still on my face, and I was extremely frustrated. The two times I tried this product, I had to finish with another face wash – just to get the eye makeup off! Not to mention this product left a slimy film on my face. It wasn’t a good product at all, and I’m not going to tell you where you can buy it – cause it costs $36! If you’re looking for a makeup remover like I was – stick with the always amazing Lancome’s Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.

A product that lives up to it’s name, PERFECT!


This product really took me by surprise!  I get a lot of samples sent to me, and rarely do I find a product that really amazes me.  Like – how could I not have known about this before – products.  I have seen this product before, but I never actually made the jump to buy it.  But when it was sent to me, I thought – now I can try it out, and see if I like it! Let me just say – that had I known how great this product was earlier, it would have saved me so many foundation mistakes.  This is a miracle product, I’m not even joking.

It’s colored like a foundation – but it doesn’t go on like a foundation. It goes on like a moisturizer that turns into a smooth powder once it sets! My skin felt amazing! Soft, and glowing! All of my redness was gone! My sun spots were covered! My favorite part? It makes your pores disappear! I mean honestly! It’s like someone painted my face with fairy dust! :) Okay, getting out of control here…but really, it is amazing!! I wish I had some to give away, I really think every woman should try it!

I’m falling in love with Caudalie!

I have tried a couple Caudalie products in the past, and I’ve really liked them! One of my favorites, was always staring at me at the Sephora counter – and I finally broke down and bought it. That was Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir. I loved that product so much, I blew through it in a flash! (Read my review on that product here)

I recently had the absolute PLEASURE of trying two more Caudalie products, and I have to say – they’re slowing becoming a must-have brand for me! They just don’t make a bad product!
