Innisfree Derma Formula Micellar Cleansing Water Moist was purchased by Cosmeperks.
Innisfree has recently stepped up the game of cleansing waters by releasing two new ones – under this collection – each of those two for a different skin type. So, there is one for oily skin called “fresh” but when I tried it I didn’t feel it too different from their normal Green Tea cleansing water. Whereas when I tried this one I didn’t feel any sort of dryness, as if I removed my skin’s dirt and oil but somehow it was still moist. So of course I brought the “moist” one for dry skin.
The store actually advises the “fresh” version for dry and combination skin but we all have different priorities and the winter weather in Korea is extra dry – that’s how I justified my choice. Although the worry that all this moisture could cause a break out actually worried me, so I tested it for a long long time as I was concerned.

Innisfree Derma Formula Micellar Cleansing Water Moist Review:
A thing I really want to point out about this product is that, even though it lacks a lot when it comes to design (at least to me) the bottle cap compensates all. The cap, as you can see in the lid’s top, is exquisite and once it closes it doesn’t leak at all, as when it was before opening.
You can throw it in your bag, you can put it in your airplane luggage, it doesn’t leak I swear. And on that note, this small piece of design is the best bottle I’ve seen around in a while.
The cleansing water itself is like water in color and texture, so there’s not much I can say about it. The smell is that of citrus, so it smells really fresh! But it doesn’t smell “like alcohol” like some other cleansing waters I tried.
This is a simple cleansing on a makeup free skin. This is how I use this water normally – because I’m lazy and this cleans really well without drying. You can see on the photo the skin is generally cleaner and the pores have less dirt inside them.
So, I’ll stress it out once again, this cleansing water cleans without drying which is why I have been using it every day in the morning to save me some morning routine time! Am I lazy? Yes, very. Did this change the quality of my cleansing? Not in the slightest bit (since I use non-drying foam cleansers).
I would show you a photo of how well this cleanser cleans my face after sleeping (sleeping mask and all) but it’s really gross to show you my sebum of a whole night hehe.
How well does it clean makeup?
The eyeshadows are easily removed with one swipe. It is quite magnetic when it comes to grabbing powders.
I described it in the photo, but after cleansing basically the mascara remained. It’s not unusual, but the mascara is also a particularly difficult mascara to remove (it doesn’t come out even with the brand’s mascara remover which comes with the mascara itself). So, other than the mascara, my eyes are awesomely clean!
Whereas I can live with the lack of mascara removing this part bothers me a little: it doesn’t grab glitter well, or at all. It grabs all small powders, but the glitter just transfers around everywhere.
I have used a lot of cleansing waters, none of them was a genius in removing mascara – usually for that a oil based cleanser is needed. So, by comparison to cleansing waters I must say for daily cleansing, not for makeup removal, it actually is better for my skin.
Most cleansing waters don’t dry the skin that much which makes it okay for a lazy day, especially since these babies remove makeup too, but this cleansing water cleanses the skin leaving most of its moisture and none of the sebum. So as a single step cleanser it wins, you cannot imagine the time I saved in the morning not having to tie my hair, wait for warm water, etc.
Not so good as a makeup remover, but it does clean the pores really well from residual powders and dirt in general.
If you are looking for a one-step-cleanser to save your time then I would give this 5 stars! If you want a makeup remover just don’t consider this at all. Personally I have been loving it in the morning before work.
