Essence Eye Makeup Remover Waterproof must be the prettiest makeup remover I’ve ever seen. Usually makeup removers are packaged in boring and sleek bottles, but this one has been enhanced simply by printing a cute drawing of a girl on the back side of the back label. That way, it looks like a mermaid is trapped inside the bottle! Unfortunately the liquid inside distorted the drawing when I took the photo, making the girl look a bit weird, but in real life it is very pretty.
The makeup remover itself does a pretty good job. It is biphasic so it needs to be shaken well before every use. The blue, oil-based phase removes even the most stubborn of makeup with ease. Longwearing eyeliners, waterproof mascaras and even longlasting lipsticks quickly dissolve without you having to pull and tug at your delicate eye area. The clear phase, instead, provides a nice refreshing feeling to the area.
It is also quite gentle and doesn’t sting nor irritate the eyes. So far it sounds great, right? But unfortunately there is a catch. This eye makeup remover leaves an oily residue behind, which means you will have to use another cleanser to remove it. I find this really annoying which is why, once the bottle is all used up, I won’t be repurchasing it.
