MaNara Hot Cleansing Gel – Review by Starlet Xen

“Cleansers are a must in my daily skincare, I might skip on lotions or eye cream when I’m lazy but never my cleansing step! I have to cleanse twice a day, once in the morning with a light gel or foam, and once more at night to remove the day’s makeup and buildup.

I’ve always favoured cleansing oils to remove my makeup as I find the slip of the oils as I massage away the grime to be enjoyable and gentle on my skin. A perk for me is dislodging little oil seeds or bits of dust as I massage away (regardless of brand used).

maNara Hot Cleansing Gel isn’t new to the market but I was wary of picking it up despite the raves as I was concerned the heat produced would irritate my sensitive skin. But guess what, again I am proven wrong! I don’t usually type in caps but I LOVE THIS!!! I REALLY DO!!

Wonect sent over a trial pack of 6 sachets, but because I am on a cosmetics & beauty ban (I have enough cleansers to last me another year) I can’t even buy it!! I really love this product so I’m saving the last 2 packs for when my skin needs a little TLC.

This gem here is formulated with 91.4% of serum-like hydrating ingredients- Collagen, Ceramide, Royal jelly extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane, Honey and Grapefruit extract amongst other things. There is zero Paraben, Mineral Oil, Petroleum derived agents, Ethanol, Synthetic colour or scent.

Many high-end brands boast nutrient rich ingredients but I’ve never really felt any of them to live up to the claims not even La Mer’s Cleansing Oil. So I don’t buy into expensive cleansing oils anymore and instead started trying out more drugstore brands as they all did the job. But this, this is LOVE! I definitely felt the ingredients nourish my skin and it felt so soft after!

The orange gel which gets it’s colour from carrot extract squeezes out thick and has a orange scent to me but apparently it’s 100% grapefruit. As I massaged it on my face it turned into a oil-like texture which spread easily. It also got hotter but never to an uncomfortable stage. I was initially worried I would end up with a red face because of the heat but I didn’t experience any redness nor irritation. It removed my makeup perfectly and it felt like I had a mini-facial. I couldn’t stop stroking my soft face after! Read more about how this gel works here.

I never thought a makeup remover or cleanser could be SO GOOD! Love the scent, the texture, the deep cleansing from the heat and the softness I experienced after is like no other. I highly recommend this product!

I’ve really discovered many new Japanese products through Wonect, thank you to the lovely team for the carefully curated and prettily wrapped packages!”
