Nivea Eye Makeup Remover // beauty review

I always seem to be on the hunt for a good makeup remover. I'm yet to try the highly appreciated micellar waters, but that's next up on my list!

So this is the Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover from Nivea. I've never really had a real opinion on Nivea products, because it's not a large part of my skincare routine. This is the first time I've really paid attention to my use of one of their products.

This is one of those eye makeup removers where you have two liquids that you need to shake up to get them to mix. I always love when a makeup remover does that, don't ask my why, I just love to watch them separate, I find it so calming. This one separates really quickly, and when I say really quickly, I mean in like 2 seconds quick. In general, this isn't too much of a problem, but I guess it's a bit annoying.

As for the actual makeup remover, I think it does it's job pretty well. It practically dissolved the makeup on my face. And when I got it in my eye (you know it happens) it didn't even hurt, so it's perfect for those who are a bit messy, like me. It works really well on mascara, you know how that can be such a pain to get off. But yes.

There are a few problems that I found while using this, however. You do need to use quite a lot of the product in order to get done what you need to get done, if you catch my drift. The problem was that it takes a long time to remove. Yes, it dissolves the makeup off of my eyes, but in layers. For some, that's probably not a problem, but for those on a very tight budget, this may not be for you. I also found that it left a really oily residue underneath my eyes. This was to be expected, to be honest. I've found that it's the same with all dual power liquid makeup removers. Because it's only under they eyes, I didn't find it to bad, and it came off after a quick wash of the face.

Overall, I did quite enjoy using the Nivea Makeup Remover, and I'll definitely continue using it until it runs out, but once that happens, I don't think it'll be a repurchase. It was the amount I had to use that sealed the deal. But oh well.

What makeup removers do you recommend?

  8. Never tried but I admit I was tempted...
    Do you have to shake it a lot so maybe the two sides start matching...?

    1. it's ok because you don't have to shake it too much, but you do a little.

  9. Great post, most things I've tried to get eye makeup off don't get it all off so it was great reading this. Sometimes I wonder to myself if I've put on eye makeup or a temporary tattoo! Also, vaseline works great :)
