So what's been news recently.. Me? I have been busy with work, gym and my baby...Nothing new has been happening and I thought I should pen down a review soon since I have been MIA lately..So I took the day off from gym and sat down to write about one of my new ventures to find a really nice makeup remover that would remove one of my darned waterproof mascara...
It all began when I saw a really cheap water proof mascara and thought to try it cause I have never tried any other before... And soon enough I was on the hunt for the perfect makeup remover.. I stumbled across this Nivea remover and bagged it to put it to the test..
Packaging : A very basic flip top squeeze bottle packaging containing 125 ml of a very gorgeous remover.
Product: This is one of those oil-in-water , bi-phase removers... There is a clear portion topped with a beautiful blue portion.. Thoroughly shake it up and squeeze a few drops onto a cotton pad and gently apply onto your eyes. Initially I let it sit on my eye lids for a minute and then gently swiped to remove the heavy eye makeup.. I was impressed as a chunk of the makeup was on the cotton... It really did a good job of cleansing my skin with the least bit of effort from my side... My eye area did not have to be tugged around a lot. But I did feel a slight stinging sensation occasionally. But the two main irritation factors were :
a) It left behind a heaviness or invisible greasiness on my face that I had to either wash it off or if I am too lazy, I give it a swipe with my trusty ole Bioderma Sensibio H2O...
b) Once I shook the solution and squeezed a few drops, the remover would again settle back to its bi-phase.. And again countless times I would have to flip it close , shake and again pour it out quickly before it settled. This might seem a trivial task to most but my patience was running... And as you can see in the pics below towards the end I just did not bother to shake it up and now only the blue portion is remaining.. So there ...
Availability: All local supermarkets & drugstores
P.S. I did end up buying more makeup removers only to realize that the particular mascara was just not removable..
