Product Description:

GENTLE lip and eye make-up remover is a unique formula which instantly removes the most tenacious eye and lip make-up, even waterproof. So gentle it is suitable for sensitive eyes.



Texture & Scent:
This makeup remover has two layers - an oily layer on the top (presumably for removing waterproof makeup) and the actual remover beneath. Both layers are quite watery, so it is easy to dispense it unto a cotton pad. There is a very faint perfumy scent that is hardly noticable.

Packaging:

This makeup remover comes in a plastic bottle with a twist off cap.


The dispensing hole is rather large so you can dispense both layers at the same time easily! :)

Time Test:
It takes just a couple of minutes to fully remove all the makeup from my face, including waterproof mascara!!

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM22.90 (approx. US$6.36), which is rather affordable! It goes on sale quite often too! :) It's available at most Watsons / Guardian / Loreal counters.

Usage:
I use this daily to remove my makeup and sunblock!

Here's a simple guide on how to use this product! Let's start with my makeup plastered face:









Tip: You can use the reverse side of the cotton pad to remove your makeup too!! :)





My $0.02:
This used to be my HG drugstore makeup remover - i went through countless bottles of this before i discovered the MAC Cleanse-off Oil (which i will review on another day)!! It's cheap and it removes absolutely everything (including the very very stubborn MAC Liquidlast liners and the Fasio waterproof mascaras!)!! I love how this isn't very oily too!! Two thumbs up for this great drugstore find! :D


In a Nutshell:

An awesome drugstore makeup remover that gives you the bang for your buck!!

Likes: Removes EVERYTHING, cheap, easily available
Gripes: The need to double cleanse after! :)
Repurchase: Yes!

Rating:
4.5 Stars ! Near HG Stuff!! :D

  1. This is my all time favourite eye and makeup remover! I've tried those higher end ones such as lancome bi facil and bobbi brown's but nothing beats this. It's really gentle and removes makeups easily whereas the lancome and bb's kinda stings when i used it on the eyes areas. Love it!

    Btw u said u also use this to remove sunblock? Does it mean u used it on your face as well? I thought it's only meant for eye and lips and would be too strong on other areas.

  2. Hi5!! :D This is indeed very gentle!! No stinging even when i used it to remove the eyeliner whenever i tightline!!

    Yes... i use it on the face also ler! it's safe!! Our eye and lip areas are the most sensitive ler... so if those areas can tahan this remover, the face should be ok lah! :D

  7. I've yet to try this as I still have two oil makeup removers to get through. But I've heard a lot of good reviews about this :)

    I'd recommend using a cotton bud to remove any liquid eyeliner and/or mascara first before using a cotton pad to remove the rest of the eye makeup. Especially waterproof mascara and that long-wearing eyeliner. This way, there'll be no tugging of skin when it comes to removing eye makeup with the cotton pad :)
