Review of TheBalm Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup by Andera
This is the best eye makeup remover I have ever used! I was stoked when I found out it was sold at my local beauty supply store (which doesnt usually carry such unconventional brands).
The skin around my eye area is quite thin and sensitive and I wasnt able to find the right makeup remover. The last ones that worked for me were Clarins' Sensitive Eyes & Lips and Bobbi Brown's Long Lasting Eye Makeup Remover. But they were both quite pricey and lasted me a mere 3 months (I wear eyeliner and mascara almost daily).
I've been using my first Balms Away tin for exactly a year and will be repurchasing in a month or 2 when it runs out. So definitely value for money!
Although the product looks and feels oily (think petroleum jelly), it doesnt leave a greasy film on my eyes after use, which tends to happen with some oil-based makeup removers. I also use it to remove lipstick and it works great as it doesnt dry out the skin as it's supposed to have plant-based moisturisers and is vitamin enriched.
People in a rush might not favour this though because you have to apply the product all over the eyelid and let it work on the makeup for about 15 seconds before using a tissue or cotton pad to wipe it off. But as I use it at the end of my day, I have no issues with that and am quite happy that it is now part of my night routine.
