Reviewed: We Love Eyes Tea Tree Makeup Removers
I go really heavy with my eye makeup and it’s so annoying to wake up and see black eyeliner smudges on my white pillowcase, especially when I was convinced that I had properly scrubbed off my makeup the night before.
And there are so many nights when I come home late and just want to fall into bed. I don't though because Brianna has convinced me not to, but I'd be lying if I said that doing this wasn't a dreadfully dull chore. Plus, it is far from easy to find a quality, get-the-job-done eye makeup remover (though Nila did find one in the dollar store beauty aisle once).
I’ve tried a few removers in my day and wasn’t happy with them. Some didn’t work well enough, others stung my eyes and irritated my skin. I honestly stopped using removers for a while and was just washing my face before using toner.
Luckily, I was fortunate enough to receive this beautiful package from We Love Eyes.
Let's get down to business.
Here is a snap of my pre-removal eye makeup. Lots of eyeshadow and eyeliner. The directions suggested that I start with the remover oil, so I put a few drops onto a cotton ball and rubbed away at my makeup. I have really sensitive eyes and am a contact lenses wearer, so I was super pleased by how gentle it was!
Usually, the toughest part of my makeup to remove is the Indian kohl I wear on my water and lower lash line, but this oil got it off sooooo well!
Basically, what this oil did was smudge around and loosen up the makeup, which made the second step really easy.
I then used the foaming cleanser, by pumping it out onto my (clean) fingers and rubbing it on my eyelid, eyelashes and on the outer edge of my lower lash line. The tea tree gave my eyes a very soothing, cooling sensation, which is honestly really nice right before you go to bed. This cleanser removed all the makeup and oil residue, leaving my eyes completely clean!
See? Anyway, the whole process only took a couple minutes and didn’t leave my face feeling overly-scrubbed and raw. I am incredibly impressed by this company and have been using the products everyday since receiving them with amazing results!
