If you wear eye makeup, there is just no way around having a great eye makeup remover. And if you wear waterproof mascara? It’s not even an option! I hardly wear waterproof mascara, but I find that waterproof eye makeup removers work best for me, above all else. I need that oily-slip, it just feels more comfortable, with less tugging, and more complete. I recently learned that bareMinerals has released their own version, the Instant Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, and I was happy to put it to the test!
Instant Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is a dual-action formula that contains naturally-derived emollients, and a unique mineral complex to help bind moisture to the skin. What I found really interesting, is that this also contains a fruit-infused water blend of cucumber, kiwi, and apple. It’s formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, and artificial oils.
So did it work? I even broke my personal no-waterproof mascara pledge to find out. And I’m happy to say that Instant Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover from bareMinerals worked very well; both with waterproof, and regular eye makeup. Some eye makeup removers sting the skin on my eyelids so badly that I can’t stand it (I have eczema on one of my eyelids, bummer—so I’m especially sensitive on that eye). This didn’t sting at all and felt soothing. It was pretty effortless to use too, I didn’t have to tug or rub, and my lids and lashes were perfectly clean.
I love this, and it does a great job of removing both waterproof, and regular eye makeup for me. It does leave behind a little bit of an oily residue, which I actually find soothing (but I know some people don’t care for that feeling). It feels really gentle on my eyes.
