PP Review Meter: Avon Face and Eye Makeup Remover



 
Honestly though I own a lot of makeup I don’t use them often. I get some reason every time to skip using them and regret later! But I always wanted to invest in a good makeup remover and I was looking for something that would help removing both face, eye and lip makeup altogether as using different removers for each is a pain for me (Lazy you know :P)

I was planning to buy the Maybelline or Lakme makeup removers but still as I have oily-combination skin I felt that they might leave my skin greasy due to the bi-phase nature. Later when I checked this remover in Avon brochure I was attracted by its classy and simple packaging and wanted to try it. I didn’t have a rep. to get me this and was sobbing for few months coz of it :(


As this was also a bi-phase one, the eager drained slowly. But the packaging was haunting my mind. 2 months later I got a rep and at the same time the makeup remover was on a 30% off offer ;)
Two-in-one deal :D I picked it up and to know whether it’s a love or ditch read on :)

Price: 399 INR for 75 ml (I got it for 299 back then but the price is hiked now)

Packaging:

It comes in a simple, cute and classy white bottle with a black flip cap. The cap is fit with the bottle firmly helping in making it travel friendly. This was the main feature that attracted me ;)

What it claims?


What it contains?


My take on Avon Face & Eye makeup remover

Firstly though it is a bi-phase remover I personally don’t feel that it contains more oil. The bottle needs to be shaken well before use for expected results. The remover is a white runny liquid which doesn’t feel greasy at all! It feels just a little opaque than H2O. So it’s a big yayy for me as I hate using oil for removing makeup since it give me troubles – blurs vision, makes skin feel oily forcing to deep clean my skin again!



The remover really does what it claims! With just a few drops on your cotton pad all your face makeup and regular\matte lipsticks come off with just a light single swipe :D But for removing kajal, waterproof eyeliners you would need a little stronger second swipe and your mascara needs even more effort to get removed completely. But I wouldn’t blame the product for that as it is the same case even with olive oil for me. It doesn’t sting at all which I feel is the best part of the remover. Though I don’t have super sensitive eyes but my eyes are a little sensitive indeed and I didn’t feel like I have applied a makeup remover on my eyes when I use this. So it scores a 100\100 here!!

The worst part is I personally feel that this remover leaves your eyes dry after removing your eye makeup with force as I always tend to splash my eyes with water immediately after removing my makeup with it. Also it makes your eye look dead and lifeless but I don’t mind coz I would never be using it in the middle of day :P Also it leaves a little oil residue back in the skin which doesn’t irritate me as it disappears after splashing water on my face most of the time.


Swatch:
Removes lipsticks, eyeshadows and other makeup at one swipe!
But you kajal, waterproof liner and mascaras would need a second swipe or little more effort :(




Rose petals:

Super classy travel friendly packaging
Best buy as it is for face & eyes when most of the makeup removers come for just eyes & lips
Paraben free
Didn't blur my vision or make my eyes uncomfy
Didn’t break me out
Comfortable and light weight texture
Removes makeup effectively and leaves skin clean
Ophthalmologist-tested and safe for contact lens wearers
One bottle would easily last for 3 months if used everyday
Total value for money
As it is oil based it is good for those with dry skin

Thorns:

Not easily available, can be got only through Avon representatives (but it is an easy job now as there are many avon reps. Available)
I personally feel it is bit costly – but a real good deal as it is paraben free
Can sting sensitive eyes a bit
Dries out my skin around the eyes a little
Makes eyes look dull (but again I feel this would probably happen with most of the makeup removers)

Recommend? Yes definitely!

Repurchase? Not now as I’m eyeing on the new release from Maybelline ;) But I hope would definitely get back to this if I’m not happy with MBL!!
