NYX makeup remover review

NYX Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Product description: So long smudges and hello clean and smooth skin! Extra gentle yet strong enough to rid of all the hard-to-remove makeup on your eyes and lips. The formula is an emulsion of gentle cleansers fused with oils and extracts from rice and soy bean and contains orange and papaya fruit extracts. Cleanse, nourish, and purify your face with NYX Makeup Remover. You deserve it.

Ingredients: Water, Cyclomethicone, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, CI61565, Sodium Chloride, Poloxamer 184, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Citric Acid, Dipropylene Glycol, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Hull Extract, Vigna Radiata Seed Extract, Crtrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange), Fruit Extract, Carica Papaya Fruit Extract

Pros: it looks super cool! :P, effectively removes all kinds of makeup, smells nice (citrusy)

Cons: leaves an oily film behind (it does dry though), leaves a bitter taste if used on lips

What I thought about it: For only $6, this is worth it. It looks so cool in the bottle! It's like when you mix oil and water together... except the "oil" is blue (: Then you just shake the bottle until the contents mix. It smells super good, due to the fruit extracts in it. It removes most traces of makeup relatively well. It does leave an oily film behind (it does not feel too oily when applying), however, this dries and disappears after a bit, leaving skin soft and smooth. I still would cleanse after using this though. My mom used it to take off her lipstick and it worked well, but it left a bitter taste in her mouth. So that's the only downside to this m/u remover. I wouldn't say that this is a GREAT m/u remover, but it does the job well.

  2. oh no on the bitter taste and oily film! thanks for the review
