I'm typically most worried that a makeup remover will break me out or cause problems with my skin. The second thing I'm worried about is that it'll actually remove my makeup and without leaving that greasy/oily feeling behind. Which is why I like lotions.
I'm not sure why I had problems with this and others seem to love it. I had to use 3 pea sizes on my entire face. I'd use one pea size and a baby wipe to remove my makeup, see not everything was removed, and have to go back in with another pea sized. The last was mostly for getting rid of my mascara (which a baby wipe alone can take care of & this didn't until the 3rd time- wtf?). So I'll use it and probably won't re-buy.
I just had high hopes, maybe I'll try the more liquid version of this....?
If I weren't obsessed with my regular cleansing cream, this would permanently be in my kit. Great on waterproof mascara and stubborn tattoo makeup! Recommend for those on a budget with dry, sensitive or normal skin.
This did not remove waterproof mascara. I use Better Than Sex from Too Faced and it didn't budge but smeared. Coconut oil is my go to for everything to remove makeup.
ok,let me start by saying that I HATE makeup removers. All of the ones Ive tried (cheap ones,expensive ones u name it) some have left my face oily,some irritated and stung my eyes leaving me blind,none cleanes all of the product out of my face etc. I just never quite found one I liked or satisfied me...that was untyl I found this! There was a coupon and sale combination going on at a local walgreens and u could buy 5 Maybelline items for 3$ each,I bought some stuff and got this because it was the cheapest and I rlly needed something to take my makeup off,so I thought why not? Ill try it. Boy am I glad I got this! Its suuuper smooth over the skin,I use waterproof mascara and waterproof eye liner and it comes off soo so easily its stupid,it doesnt sting my eyes at all and the best thing is its not oily at all! Honestly,out of all the "drug store gems" makeup stuff,this is one of them!
I have only used this once and absolutely love it. Just a quarter sized amount rubbed all over (including my eyes) removed my foundation, eyeshadow, waterproof eyeliner, and waterproof mascara with NO burning or stinging. It is easiest to remove the product with toilet paper. My face felt smooth and moisturized after, but I did follow it with a wash using my clarisonic. This stuff has earned HG status as far as removing makeup goes. I will definitely repurchase.
I am constantly searching for an effective makeup remover that isn't an oil based product. I see the conundrum as oil removes wax BUT my skin reacts negatively and tends to break out. I picked the Makeup removing lotion at a sale for $4. I have used it for the entire face but I prefer it strictly for removing eye makeup. For the face, I find it leaves a greasy residue. For eye makeup, I take a pea size for each eye and massage it in until I feel the waterproof mascara dissolve. This is probably as close to removing the toughest waterproof makeup without having to tug and pull, sometimes it still doesn't completely take all of it off but I do follow up with another makeup removing cleanser. It does its job. The one thing I don't like is the packaging, I often disperse too much product out, prefer if it was a pump. Don't get it in your eyes, it stings!
I love this stuff. It works beautifully and is incredibly simple to use - a little goes a long way. I use it right before bed and I find I don't even need any moisturizer; I've also noticed that my skin has improved in the month or so that I've been using it. It burns a bit if you get it directly in your eyes, but that usually only happens if you really use too much. Highly, highly recommend! I will keep buying this stuff as long as they keep making it!
I bought this for 6 bucks at Walgreen when i left my eye makeup remover at home going out for a trip on the weekend. I tried the liquid version of this where you shake it up and thought I'd like this one too since i recently got into using cream makeup removers! Sadly, I was disappointed. This stuff burned my eyelids and under my eye area! It did remove my covergirl lash blast waterproof mascara but it stung way too much! Because of that I will not repurchase. I'll stick my my andalou natural eye makeup removing lotion.
I bought this on a whim at Walmart a little over a month ago. I think I have probably tried every kind of makeup remover out there. From Mary Kay, L'Oreal, and maybelline liquid removers... which ALL may have removed even waterproof mascara with ease, but made my skin look and feel like I slathered oil all over it. However, this makeup remover is revolutionary to me. All you need is a pearl sized drop of this lotion to do the whole job. I wear waterproof eyeliner and mascara, foundation and bronzer. I rub this all over my face, which spreads with ease. I literally massage my eyelashes and under eye area and it causes No stinging No burning... unlike some of the liquid oil removers which have burned very badly and made me go blind for a minute even. Anyways, after gently rubbing this all over with my fingers, I take a cotton ball or tissue and wipe it off. The tissue alone is enough to prove this products strength. Takes away ALL traces of makeup even the eyeliner and mascara. Leaves skin feeling soft, clean and moisturized exactly as advertised. sometimes I don't even feel the need for my usual moisturizer afterwards because this stuff really just is that great. so great in fact that it is the product that made me decide to make an account because women need to know about this awesome stuff!!!!!! Also after using this I use a pore refining toner applied with a cotton ball and absolutely no traces of makeup are left on the cotton ball... so I know for sure that the Flash Clean is the product that's removing all the makeup. I love this stuff. I honestly have never been so impressed with a single other product than the way I feel about Flash Clean. This stuff is inexpensive not to mention the fact that it's going to save me lots of money because this really is 3 in 1. My skin even looks better and feels smoother since using this for over a month now.!!! And to touch on the packaging problem others have mentioned. I agree you do need to be careful in order to dispense the small amount you need. But if you just remember to be careful you'll be fine. I have at least 3/4 of the bottle left, used daily for over a month. I will not even look at another makeup remover now that I have found this!!!!!!
I was in the market for a face makeup remover because I noticed that wipes and cleanser weren't removing all the makeup like heavy foundation. I ended up picking this one up because it was a new product in the market and I had a coupon. Overall I like the product and probably would repurchase unless I find something better.
- Removes makeup easily
- Removes waterproof mascara (but don't let it touch your eyeball). I gently massage this on my eyelashes to remove product while keeping my eyes closed.
- Price around $6
- No Pump
- The feeling on the skin after the product is removed. I don't know how to describe the feeling on the skin but it's not oily or sticky.
