My makeup yesterday is kinda heavy...This product is not intended to remove waterproof stuff though. Let's see how it works:

Super busy the whole day...I looked haggard..

I squeezed a small amount on a cotton ball. Then rubbed it gently on my entire eye area and lashes.


See? There's still some mascara left...

I used a cutip to remove the remaining...

And done...

+ It's very gentle. It doesn't hurt my eyes.
+ It's just like water that it doesn't give a sticky feeling after.
+ It does not leave my skin dry.
+ I like it's mild scent.
+ removes non waterproof makeup in one/2 swipes.
+ I like the packaging.

- I can't think of anything..=D

Will I buy this again?

Probably...not in the next months. But I really like this product... it's just that there's also a Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Makeup Remover available and I'd like to try that next since I'm always using waterproof mascara.

P450/$9 at any Body Shop store.

Pau asked me this yesterday so I figured there's something lacking in this post:

Eh why in the first place did you buy this instead of the waterproof remover one? ..

I told him..when I bought it I was not into waterproof thingys yet. Logically, the formula of the waterproof remover is harsher (is that the right term?) or stronger rather than the mild one. That's it hahaha...Am I making sense?

I've been looking around for makeup removers lately, and this looks like it might be good. But why do they have to separate the mu remover for waterproof and for nonwaterproof mu? I feel they're trying to rip us off. If I were going to get one I'd get the one for waterproof mu though, I think it'd work fairly well for non-waterproof mu as well.

Can you recommend a more affordable mu remover?

Hi Chrissy,

The only makeupremovers I've tried so far are the Eskinol milk makeup remover, The Body Shop Camomile mild and the Elianto green tea makeup remover. The Elianto removes waterproof makeup but I can't say it's great. I've been wanting to try other brands...I'm just finishing what I have hehe...But for your reference, this post might be helpful:
