Review: Bifesta Uruochi Cleansing Lotion – a Bioderma dupe?

Can we take a moment to step back from the craze of Bioderma?  I feel like almost everyone in the beauty community online sings the praises of Bioderma.  To be honest, I prefer oil-based cleansers, especially since I have a few favorite brands which don’t leave a greasy residue on your skin.  I have reviewed Bioderma before, so I decided to give this local product a try.  This is a review of the Bifesta Uruochi Cleansing Lotion. Bifesta is a brand under the company Mandom, which makes the body wipes that I like so much.


What it does: (from the Bifesta website)

Removes makeup quickly while protecting the skins moisture. By wiping gently with a cotton, this product will remove eye makeup and foundation in your pores. No need to rinse off.

Price: Will vary depending on where you purchase. Amazon Japan lists this product for around 900 JPY (around $7.50) for the 300 ml bottle.

Scent: While there is a scent, it is only apparent when I sniff the product directly.

Availability: This product is widely available at Japanese drugstores.


  • This product did a good job at getting off my makeup.
  • Even my eyeliner and mascara came off with just a few swipes
  • Although I rinsed my face after using it, not having to do so is a plus.



  • I still feel like wiping my face with cotton is more effort than using an oil-based cleanser


Would I repurchase?  Yes, if I wanted to buy a water-based cleanser


This product was such a clear winner for me vs Bioderma! It did a great job of taking off my makeup including my eye makeup, which Bioderma did not do for me.  If you have access to this product, I really recommend it!


When using this product, I used the reusable cotton rounds I previously reviewed. I found that dampening the rounds with water helped the product to soak in better.



Hope you enjoyed this review!
