Name: Gentle Eye Make-up remover
From Nivea’s website:
NIVEA VISAGE GENTLE EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER has been specifically designed for the sensitive eye area to perfectly remove water-soluble eye make-up without leaving any greasy residue. Its mild formulation with ProVitamin B 5 gently hydrates the delicate eye area.
What I liked:
– if you only wear minimal makeup, this will work well for you
– doesn’t irritate my eyes
What I didn’t like:
– doesn’t remove longwearing, stubborn, or waterproof makeup
I am always looking for a bargain. Who isn’t? It’s great when you find a product that works well and doesn’t break the bank. Often though, you do get what you’re paying for. Sadly, that’s the case with Nivea Visage Gentle Eye Make-up Remover.
First, the good. This eye makeup remover is very gentle. It doesn’t irritate nor stings my eyes, and it doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind. It also has a pleasant, subtle smell.
However, it doesn’t really remove all traces of make-up. It especially struggles with dark eyeshadow colours and waterproof mascara. When I use them, I always seem to be rubbing and rubbing at my eyelids and lashes, trying to take them off. It takes ages and is no good for skin.
If, unlike me, you prefer to wear minimal makeup – just a touch of natural eyeshadow shades, a pencil eyeliner, and a non-waterproof mascara – then this will be enough for your needs. Anything more than that though is too much for this makeup remover to deal with.
Overall, this gentle eye makeup remover is effective at removing only minimal makeup. Anything more than that, it can’t deal with. However, it is gentle and doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind.
