Sephora Waterproof Eye Make Up Remover Review

Sephora Eye Make Up Remover

 

I wear waterproof mascara everyday, yes I know I am crazy but it is the only way my lashes hold a curl. So the hunt for the best eye make up remover started. I went to Boots and there offering just didn’t take off my mascara fully.  Sephora make up remover is a two part solution which you have to shake up so that the oil mixes in. I use this remover on a cotton pad and it gently dissolves my mascara and eye make up and just wipes it away.

The Good

  • removes all traces of mascara
  • doesn’t irritate the eyes
  • Don’t need to rub the eyes to remove it

The BAD

  • It does leave an oily residue which I personally don’t mind as I wash my face fully afterwards.
  • There no Sephora in Ireland 🙁 but you can buy it online.

What The Body Shop says: 

This silky-soft cleanser will effortlessly remove make-up from the whole face quickly and effectively, leaving skin feeling clean, refreshed and clear of impurities. It’s the ultimate time-saver.

  • removes makeup
  • suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers
  • removes waterproof make up
  • leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed.

My thoughts: 

It does remove my make up very well after two cleanses. I find the first one just removes the top layer and I then need a second one to fully remove my make up. As for waterproof mascara, I found it took most of it off but some mascara was still there.

Oil:  The oil does not affect sensitive, acne prone skin at all. It is extremely gentle. Don’t be afraid of oil cleansers.

Scent:

The scent is extremely powerful.

How I use it:

I use it by pumping one pump into my hands and then massaging it into my face dry, once my face is covered in the oil. I then wash my hands  and use the water to turn the oil into a milky texture, to remove the cleanser I use a face towel as I find if I don’t use one and oily residue is left behind.

Residue: 

Slight oily residue
