so last weekend, while getting some stuffs for my friend's mom at the mall, i browsed thru the Beauty Section (where else!?) to look for any great finds. And i saw this eye makeup remover from Beauty Formulas. I've been using some of their product already, like their cooling eye pads, self-heating face masks, and others and this is something new i think for this is the first time i saw this with their other products. So i got myself one and even before curiosity would kill the cat in me (LOL), i decided to try it right away.
It's in a clear gel-like consistency and almost liquidy actually.
I poured some on a cotton ball and swiped it on my lids. I was only wearing my MAC fluidline in Blacktrack and a waterproof mascara. I had to pour more and swipe more to really take the liner as well as the mascara off. But, i just ended up with smeared eyeliner and my mascara didn't even budge.
I don't easily give up though...so the next day, i tried using the remover again but this time, i am wearing an eyeshadow, a liner and still a waterproof mascara (i always wear waterproof ones). I poured again some on the cotton ball and tried to take off my eyemakeup. This time, my eyeshadow went off...but not totally. I had to use more before it finally took off my eyemakeup, including my fluidline. But unlike my other makeup remover, with this, i had to do some tugging and exert more effort to really take off my makeup. And yeah, my waterproof mascara still stayed put.
I know some of you might ask why buy a separate eye makeup remover? Well, you know there are times when i'd mess up with my eye makeup and i have to do it all over again? So instead of reaching out for my MAC remover, i try to keep a separate eye makeup remover for such instances. I try to reserve my MAC cleanse off oil when i really want to remove makeup from my entire face.
This is cheap, got it for only Php150 ($3-$4) but i wouldn't suggest this for those who wear waterproof makeup, or even eyeshadows with a primer underneath. It will really need some tugging and pulling of your eyelid (or area) and i don't think anybody wants to have wrinkles just because they want to save money from buying cheaper makeup removers, right? I already have a bad case of undereye wrinkles and i'd do anything to have it removed...so i wouldn't want to aggravate that.
Maybe, if you dont wear any eyeshadow primers or waterproof eyeliners or mascara, this could work for you. but for me...nah, i won't even think of buying another bottle. Maybe i'll use this when i'm practicing some eye makeup color combos and i'm not wearing any primers.
IAMSUTIL gives this product 2 thumbs down!
Hope it helps!
