My Take On Neutrogena Oil – Free Eye Makeup Remover

This makeup remover is better than Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover. Its quantity is good. It is not in a spray form as Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover, so the amount of use can easily be managed. Cleans  my eye makeup in one go. I also use it as a face makeup remover and it is good at that too. Still its biggest drawback is that it has some oil residues even when the product claims that it is oil-free.

Pros

  • Does not irritate my eyes or skin
  • Lightweight
  • Affordable
  • Easy to use
  • Can be used as face or lip makeup remover

Cons

  • Does not do what it claims as it is not oil free.

Would i buy it again?

Nope. I would like to try more makeup removers available in the market.

It comes in a colour coordinated cap with hologram all over it.You can identify the shade without any confusion as most of us like hoarding maybelline lipsticks.

Shade 

It is a light pink shade with blue undertone and golden shimmer on it. It covers pigmentation in one go. The colour is mainly on the sheer side. One can not actually see the gold shimmer when applied. This shade will suit light skin tones beauties.

My review

I like this shade so much that I even wear it when I am going to sleep (khi-khi 😀 ).This shade really suits my skin but sometimes when I wear this lipstick, I feel like I am wearing a purple lipstick I don’t know why. It glides on the skin very easily and gives a smooth finish.

Pros 

  • It is very affordable
  • Good quality product
  • Pigmentation is good
  • Doesn’t have over the top shimmer
  • Very young and flirty colour
  • Apt for summer
  • Beautiful jeweled tone
  • 8 fantastic shades in this range

Cons

  • Blue undertone

Pros
– lightweight on lips.
– moisturizes
– packaging is lightweight and attractive.
– highly pigmented.
– texture is buttery smooth.

Cons

LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE BI-PHASED MAKEUP REMOVER

Hi, I hope you all are doing well and my blog is being read 🙂 .  Today I am doing a review on Lakme Absolute Bi-phased Makeup Remover.

10726783_569312233174796_1239415163_n

Price

Rs. 225 (May vary as per location)

Description on its website

One product, two functions – Lakmé Absolute Bi-Phased Make-up Remover is a unique formulation where the oil phase lifts off makeup while the water phase refreshes and conditions skin without leaving any stickiness. It effortlessly removes all traces of makeup from the face, leaving the skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

How to use

As it is an oil + water based makeup remover, it has to be shaked well before each use. It can be sprayed on cotton or tissue, 3 to 4 sprays are enough. While applying move it in gentle circular motions on your face. Do it until all the makeup is cleaned. It is suitable for all the makeup types, even for the longwearing and waterproof lip, eye, and face makeup.

My reviews

Out of all makeup removers that I have used so  far, this one is good of all. It removes all kinds of makeup as said by them. The only drawback of this product is that it leaves oil residue on the skin and makes the  face very oily. I have to wash my face after every use. Anyways I will give 3.5/5 stars for this.

Pros

  • Removes all the makeup as well as dirt.
  • Does not irritate sensitive skin.

Cons

  • Skin feels oily after use.

Would I buy it again

I would like to try more brands of makeup removers for  better comparison.

Stay tuned for next product reviews.
