[Review] Laneige Multi Cleanser

Hey guys - I'll be reviewing Laneige's "Multi Cleanser" for this post!

I first tried this cleanser when I bought my first "Laneige Basic Care Set" box. It came in a deluxe sample size. I ended up using it every night to take off my makeup! 


"Mild and thorough cleansing for clear and bright skin"

Papain enzymes-based multi cleanser with 4 functions of:
- Removing makeup 
- Removing sunscreen
- Exfoliating 
- Cleansing 

The tube comes in a 180ml size, and is described as suitable for all skin types. Its dermatologist tested, and is apparently non-comedogenic tested as well. The product lasts for 30 months unopened, and is good for 12 months after first use. 

When squeezed out, the product is pretty thick, creamy and white. As you start massaging it into your skin, it foams up into this really foamy (heh) and bubbly texture. It feels creamy, but at the same time it feels lightweight. Hard to explain - but I like the feeling of this cleanser~


@ Amore Pacific stores (and Laneige stores): Approximately $30
@ eBay (Amore Pacific official dealer): $27 (but is currently on sale for $22!!)
@ Amazon: $28
@ Sasa: $32 (but is currently on sale for $23!!)


- Apply water on face with makeup and massage about a coin-sized amount of the product onto face to melt and remove makeup
- Use everyday to remove impurities inside pores and brighten skin

Here's some photos I took! 

Lots of different makeup swatches, ranging from eyeliners, eyeshadows, cream blushes, and BB cream!

1. Lancome Colour Design Quad
2. Tonymoly Backstage gel liner
3. Bobbi Brown "creamy colour for lips and cheek" 
4. The Face Shop faceit auto styling eyeliner (brown)
5. The Face Shop facet auto styling eyeliner (black)
6. Holika Holika jewel light eyeliner (black)
7. Holika Holika jewel light eyeliner (amber brown)
8. Holika Holika jewel light eyeliner (pink topaz)
9. Dollywink liquid eyeliner (black)
10. Missha Perfect Cover BB cream
11. Lancome Colour Design Quad 

I put some water on my arm, and a dollop of Laneige Multi Cleanser, smack down in the middle. Then,  I massage it into the makeup swatches!

(I didn't take a picture of this part)
The white foam obviously changes colour because it's being mixed with all that makeup. The white changed to a gross grey colour on my arm. Ick!

After some massaging and rubbing, this was the outcome (after approx. 30 seconds)

It didn't take off the makeup 100%, because i can still see a faint swatch of the Holika Holika eyeliner (no surprise there, that eyeliner sticks like IRON) and surprisingly, the Tonymoly backstage eyeliner stuck around a bit as well! 

My opinion

I use this product after my Sephora supreme oil cleanser, to double cleanse. Double cleansing is a common (and important!) step in both Korean and Japanese skincare routines. I'm pretty used to doing it, and using 2 different products to remove makeup and cleanse my skin isn't a big deal for me. 

Anyways, the Sephora cleanser is admittedly a bit difficult to work with, I feel that it leaves an oily film on my face. It takes a whole lot of time to get that film off (and water). I like using this cleanser after because it really takes off any gross feeling, and I can feel it really clean my skin, down to the (not so itty) pores!

It's an alright cleanser - though it doesn't completely get rid of all traces of makeup on its own, it's not the reason why I purchased it anyways. I still like it enough to keep purchasing it. 

Rating: 4.5/5! 


  1. Not bad! :) I might just try that in the future! Thanks for the review!

  3. Seems good :) I like how you demonstrated what does it wash off :) I know some eyeliners are a giant hassle to wash off (I'm always in trouble with my mascara -.-) but that really seems to do it's job :)

  4. Looks like a great product! I've heard so many great things about Laneige... wish it was easier to find here.

  5. Looks like a decent cleanser! Too bad it doesn't remove everything but good enough :P Is it drying?

    1. Thanks for the comments, guys^ n__n

      Hi Chee, and it's not too drying for me. I don't really notice a drying effect as much as I feel a tightening effect! Not as tight as Laneige's "foam cleanser moisture", though.

  6. This cleanser looks really nice.
    Lately I used a cleanser of KOSÉ
    and is really perfect to me.

  7. It looks pretty nice and cleansed most of the thick makeup products :D I also double cleanse to make sure nothing left in my humongous pores lol thanks for this review ^^

  8. You looks Korean =)

  16. Seems good, I definitely know laneige has some legit skincare, haven't tried their face wash but it sounds promising!

  17. Nice review i'm thinking of buying it! Also can you please do a skin routine post?

    -XOXO, ريفان (Refan)

  18. im using this as my current cleanser but i much prefer their last one (pink snowflakes) before the repackaged it! the last multi cleanser used to be amazing and could remove waterproof makeup etc but this one lacks a bit!

    love Connie!

  19. I usually always remove my makeup before cleansing it. Even if there is a cleanser that says it removes makeup, I still believe that it's difficult for it to be removed completely with only a cleanser.
    The Multicleanser definitely belongs to one of my favorite cleansers. I really like it.
