I have been using this No 7 Purifying Foaming Cleanser for many months now. This skincare product has completely changed my beauty routine for the better. I am glad I came across this cleanser. For those who have never heard of this product, No 7 Purifying Foaming Cleanser is a refreshing purifying and foaming cleanser that deep cleans the facial skin to remove make-up, impurities, pollutants and excess oil. It purifies skin and tightens the pores, leaving skin looking clearer and shine free.

Product Review: MAC Gently Off Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Product Review MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Image

I got my hands on this MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover some weeks ago, and I have used it quite a few times now. If you have been reading my product reviews posts, you will know all about my obsession with makeup remover products, and how I struggle to find the ones that do the job quickly and effectively. Well, purchasing this product was for me to see if the almighty MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, would do the job.

But I made a huge mistake. I did not read the product description correctly before purchasing. I thought it would be great for the entire face as well but it is not. It is mainly for the eyes and the lips. So learn from my mistake, and go through the entire product description twice before purchasing.

Here is what MAC has to say about this makeup remover:

Oil and water do mix, for twice the impact – just shake. A dual-phase, easy-does-it formula that sweeps off even tenacious waterproof mascara and lip colour. Absolutely gentle; suitable for all skin types. It comes with soothing cucumber extract and Damascus Rose flower water to refresh. No need to rinse.

 

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

 

Here are my thoughts on this product:

PROS

  1. I love the coral colour. It looks amazing on my white dressing table.
  2. It is a very gentle product. So no stings at all, even if a tiny bit gets into your eyes.
  3. It smells amazing.
  4. It takes off eye makeup after a few applications depending on how heavy your eye makeup was. It also wipes off any lip makeup with little effort.
  5. It is great for all skin types.
  6. Many departmental stores stock MAC products, so they are easy to find both online and in stores.

CONS

  1. You have to remember to shake it before using it, so the oil and water can mix.
  2. It is expensive at £16 for a 100ml bottle, for just wiping makeup off the eyes and lips. It is more budget friendly to go for a face wash or cleanser that will wipe off the entire face.
  3. The packaging like the MAC Fix+ is quite flimsy. It is very difficult to get it open. I think I should just stop purchasing MAC products that come in this push-twist bottle. I find them hard work.

Overall, I would not recommend this product. If I read the product description properly, I won’t have bought it. I won’t be buying this particular product again but I am still crazily in love with MAC.

What are your thoughts? Do tell..

 

 

Product Review: Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover*

Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Image

 

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:
PROS
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
CONS
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.
