Product Review: Etude House Lip and Eye Remover

Don't worry, won't end up losing either your lips or your eyes when you use this!  They just forgot the "makeup" part...maybe.

Anyways, so I went home to the province for the holidays and I left my Bioderma there.  I know I still have tons of makeup removers here in Manila (Shu, Revlon, Dove..) but I usually prefer using an eye makeup remover, then my trusted Ponds cold cream and then tissue off everything.  You know I still believe in "pasma" (how do you say that in Tagalog?) so I'd like to rest my face for a while before finally washing with water. But when I'm in a hurry or if I sort of know that I'd be dozing off to sleep right away, I'd use my oil cleansers. 

Knowing that I left my trusted Bioderma, I knew I had to buy a temporary alternative.  I went around SM Department Store, saw an Etude counter and accidentally saw this while checking out their brow mascara.  They have a lot of makeup removers, some are only intended for mascaras.  Of course, I'll get the one that could give me greater value for my moolah, so I got this:

Etude Lip & Eye (Makeup) Remover
Gently, yet effective, this double formulated lip & eye (makeup, sorry I can't help it! LoL) remover easily and instantly dissolves all traces of makeup for a soothing and moisturizing effect on the sensitive eye and lip area without any irritation.

It has two layers of solution: clear and bluish-green.  I've read that this one has changed its packaging, or maybe the formulation? Because previously, it's a lot bluer and the blue part is on top. While now, it became bluish-green and the colored part is now at the bottom.  

Anyways, like any other bi-layer solutions, you are supposed to shake it like crazy and make sure that the two layers mix.  I'm glad that this one comes in a plastic bottle, or else, I might have broken it the first time I got my hands on it.  Yes, I am lousy like that!

Now let's see if this stuff really works:

there's my eye with full-makeup on.  And you know me, I like everything waterproof!

I pour a small amount on a cotton pad... it on the eye area, let it stay there for a minute

...and then gently slide the cotton downwards.  Go back and gently wipe off the remaining makeup if needed.

and voila!

oh yes, this baby can remove everything!

No blurry vision, no oily residue after. just cleansed peepers! I've also used it on my lips when I wore the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipstick and I wasn't able to taste anything.  And no, I don't have colds! (laughs)  It didn't even taste like oil.  Parang, wala lang.

The best part?  It's cheap.  Only Php198 for a 100ml bottle.

So yeah, instead of being just temporary, this one's going to be a staple.

I tried the Etude Makeup Remover last year and I didn't like it. This might be a reformulated version. Will test it out again. ^_^
