Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover Review, Demo

Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

A makeup remover is always a must have in my kitty as I don't like using oil to remove my makeup - I hate oil on my face and lazy to clean up the oil residue after removing makeup too.
So I look out for makeup removers that are oil free to get that squeaky clean skin after removing my makeup.
When the Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover was launched in market, although it was pricey I wanted to try it as I wanted to know if it would be my best bud.
I'm already on my third bottle since then and let's see how it happened :)

My Views On Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

As I said a good makeup remover is always a necessity if you are a person who prefers waterproof makeup. A good makeup remover helps all traces of your makeup giving you clean skin.

In addition to removing all traces of makeup I also look for oil-free nature in my makeup remover as I don't like the way some removers leave a layer of oil film on my face. Although I give a good wash after removing makeup but still I hate that feel even for a minute!
To know how I exactly remove my makeup hop here :))

When this baby was a new launch I instantly grabbed a bottle of it before even reading reviews about it. But after buying I was so skeptical to use it due to the reason I said above.
I read a few reviews and after seeing some satisfaction I went ahead to try it :P


The Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover comes in a transparent oval shaped slim bottle with a white screw cap - elegance in a bottle!
It doesn't spill and is quite handy too - travel friendly :)
As like any other liquid products definitely shake well before use as the oil in it has to blend well.

Texture, Usage & Efficacy

Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover is a bi-phase makeup remover. It has almost water like texture with a little greasiness which starts to feel on skin only after a minute of application. It isn't so oily which makes me feel better :)

Just 4-5 drops are enough to cover one eye (if you have waterproof makeup on) and altogether you would need around 15-20 drops to cover your entire face.

I mostly use this only for removing my eye and lip makeup and mostly when its waterproof makeup. If I use just light makeup on my face then I go for my face cleansing system to get rid of the grease on skin after using my favourite cleansing milk!

This makeup remover removes makeup quite easily and efficiently with 1-2 swipes. You will need a few swipes to get rid of all the makeup if you are using waterproof liner or kajal. I usually add 2-3 drops of it to my cotton pad and press it gently on my lid area closing my eyes and leave it as it is for atleast 30-60 seconds. this helps activating the remover and making it interact (?!) with your waterproof makeup (especially liner\mascara). After that I just pick the pad and use it to wipe off my eye area and the makeup comes off quick after that!

However if you are a kajal lover then its a tough call as it stings a little when used on waterline. I don't have sensitive eyes and even then for the first few times it was a PITA while used on my waterline. However the stinging feel got reduced after a few times of usage - I don't know how! :/
And it does dull your eyes after removing kajal :(
This is perfect choice even if you have super sensitive eyes as it doesn't sting like other makeup removers.

Removing your face makeup and lip makeup is a bliss with this as you need just one gentle swipe to get rid of them :D

Final Verdict

It is an amazing makeup remover especially for removing waterproof makeup and a good choice for people who hate using oil for removing makeup. It is definitely a must have however the price is very high for the quantity for a drugstore brand. Maybelline are you hearing us?
