I always think that make up removers get a bit over looked in the fabulous world of beauty. So I wanted to talk and rave about Nivea’s Double effect Make-up remover.
Boots has this description on their website about it :
The oil phase effectively removes even waterproof mascara and eye-make-up.
Specially formulated and tested for the sensitive eye area.
The aqueous phase protects and cares for the eye lashes with it’s caring formula, without leaving an oily residue.
To be honest I first picked this up because it was half price in Boots and it looked cool, having the two liquids separate was awesome. It was an impulse buy that just looked fun so I had to try it.
I have not found anything that works as well as this does on anything. And I mean anything. For those of you that wear the long wear lipsticks like Jeffree Starr or LA splash this wipes it off with one swipe. Got waterproof liner on? No worries this will make easy work of it. Do I sound like an infomercial yet? I’m not surprised, this stuff is amazing! I’ve got about three bottles, what can I say? It was on sale. I’ve already finished a bottle too.
I am an avid wearer of Waterproof eyeliner, lots of eyeliner, everyday. So I am very familiar with panda eyes. Even after cleaning it off the next morning, there they are my beautiful panda eyes. Bold as brass. Now admittedly I used to use various make up wipes and they always left my skin feeling a tad irritated and didn’t really remove all the make up.
If I’m totally honest the Nivea make-up remover doesn’t really completely remove all the eyeliner/mascara either, there is still little traces left over in the morning but its hardly noticeable. Probably just the traces from between the lashes.
The bottle mixed up just to break the chunk of text.
This is an oil abused cleaner, so if you have oily skin this might not be for you. Beginning of the bottle was fine, probably about half way through the formula became a fair bit more oily. This is probably because in my mixing of the formula as I used it may have been inconsistent. Lets be honest, in the real world it happens. For me it wasn’t so bad, I generally use an face cleanser after to ensure no residue is left. But I did find it left me feeling a overly oily, but only when I’d used a significant amount of product. When I first started using it, and when I started the second bottle it’s great. My skin doesn’t feel dry or irritated.
The other thing I should feel I should mention is that if you have enough make-up on it will take a few swipes to removed, a cotton pad can only hold so much make-up. Once that is full, for lack of better of description, it will just start moving the product around on your face. Though that easy enough to remove with a clean cotton pad too.< For £3.89, this is a bargain and a half. I don't think I can praise this product more if I'm honest. Have you tried it? What were your thoughts?
