In the Limelight: Face of Australia Gentle Makeup Remover Product Review

I must have already stated on my older posts that if there is one eye makeup I would choose amongst all the products available, it would be mascara. I love how it instantly opens up the eyes and makes them look more awake. The usual bummer about mascaras, though, is that most of the time, they smudge. So I always opt for waterproof mascaras from Japanese brands but they are notoriously known for being hardcore waterproof. That's why it is also important to have a makeup remover that not only removes hard-to-remove-waterproof mascaras but also gentle enough on the eyes. Last year, I was sent a bottle of the Face of Australia Gentle Makeup Remover by The Updated Trends to try. This review has been long overdue but needless to say, here it is.

 What I like:
  • It is very gentle on the eyes, does not sting at all, as it has tear compatible PH.
  • It can remove face makeup and not just eye makeup which is a huge plus. I don't have to use a separate face makeup remover as this can certainly remove both. Money and time saver.
  • It is non-greasy and not oily on the skin.
  • Gentle enough for the skin and has not cause any allergic reaction so far.
  • Unscented.
  • Does not need to squirt a lot of product just to remove makeup.
  • Locally available at The Updated Trends for Php 425.00/125mL bottle. I'd say it's affordable.

What I don't like:
  • It says it is oil-free but since it is a two-phase product, half of it looks like oil to me. It may just be me but that's what it seems like. 

Overall rating: 4.75/5 I'd gladly change the rating to a 5 if the other half of the product isn't really oil.

Will I buy again? Yes. I think this is the makeup remover I'd purchase as soon as I am out of this and the other makeup remover I am using.

  1. interesting, haven't tried this before but I have read a lot of good reviews about it. Bioderma is still my fave since it really does feel like water and no hint of any kind of oil watsoever. ^_^

    1. I've read about Bioderma and seems like it's a nice makeup remover. :)

  2. Looks interesting. I like that it's not oily. I'm currently using two makeup removers - one for the eyes and the other for the rest of the face. It would be great to have a 2-in-1 remover like this!

  3. Currently I'm using bifesta and lush ultrabland. Bifesta can't take off waterproof mascara. Ultrabland does, but I have to let it sit for a while before it can totally remove everything (using majolica majorca lash expander and fairy drops). I thought this was going to be oily since it's a 2-phase product. For now I'm sticking with what I have but I really hope I remember this when I'm out.

  4. I have tried this and I think it is really good, however I feel better having a little oil in my makeup remover as I feel like it nourishes my eyelashes. I have recently started using pure rosehip oil and I am sure it is helping my wrinkles as well as my eyelashes lol.

  5. It sounds really good.
