Product Review: Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover*

This year, I made a vow to myself to try more beauty products. There were some brands I have heard only good things about, Urban Decay being one of them, so I was eager to try out some of their products. I got this Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover some months ago, from the local Debenhams for £18, while holidaying in Essex, and I am proud to say this is my very first Urban Decay product. I have never tried any product from the brand, so I was happy to try this, to see what the hype is about.

Here is the product description:

You love our longest-lasting products, but how do you take them off?! This nourishing formula will ensure that makeup removal doesn’t throw you into fits.You love Urban Decay’s longest-lasting products, but how do you take them off?! This formula will ensure that makeup removal doesn’t throw you into fits.

Sometimes you need a makeup remover that’s as mighty as the most powerful products in your beauty arsenal, which is why Urban Decay created Meltdown! This stuff can take down Urban Decay’s longest-lasting products.
This creamy gel is non-greasy, so you don’t have to wash off any residue after you use it, and the light fragrance is uplifting but never obtrusive.

Fill Weight: 73.9ml

Here are my thoughts on this product:
1. It is very convenient to use. No need to use water. All you need is some cotton wool or tissue.
2. It feels so good on the skin. Non-greasy and non-sticky.
3. I like the light fragrance.
4. It is quite affordable at £18 for a 73.9ml tube.
5. I love the packaging, so pretty.
6. It is easily accessible. You can grab 1 in most department stores.
7. It has not been tested on animals.
Urban Decay Review
1. I had to use quite a bit to get all traces of makeup off my face, but then again, I had on heavy makeup on the few times I used this.
2. The product stings when you have on too much.
This product is OK. I think I prefer face washes/cleansers, when it comes to removing makeup, so I may be biased in thinking this Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover did not live up to its hype. I won’t be buying this again, but I recommend it to anyone who puts on light makeup. This product will get it all off in seconds.

  1. Honest review! I’ve not tried this as I’m more of a let my cleanser do everything type girl. My favourite is by LUSH – Ultrabland but I have also been using l’occitane shea cleansing oil but being realistic any oil will break down make-up so I keep EVOO handy in the bathroom! x

  2. No I haven’t tried this. I cleanse, tone and moisturiser in the morning. On a night to take my make up off I use sensitive cleansing wipes (they remove everything with 1 wipe) then splash with cold water, tone and night moisturiser

    Thank you for the review. I think I will stick with what I do. I am glad you reviewed though as it helps me make up my mind on any new product I haven’t tried

  3. I have not tried this make before, I am not 100% if I would only because I prefer softer lotions on my face and the stinging side is putting me off. Thank you for an honest review, it is lovely to hear the cons as well as the pros x

  4. Great review, I have not tried this product before and I hardly wear makeup but when I do and I have to remove it I use my cleansers
