Make-up Remover review: Etude House Lip & Eye Remover

-etude-house11-lip-and-eye-remover-100mlThe name of this product can sounds funny for sure, but is it effective and fulfill its promises? Let’s see it together ^^

Etude House’s Lip & Eye remover is one of the cheapest among the other Korean lip and eye makeup removers. The package is quite simple and not as “cute” as I thought it would be. The blue color of the liquid that you can see on this picture, is way lighter than this. There is English directions, very good point, as well as ingredients in English.

On the bottle it is written “Gentle, yet highly effective, this double formulated lip & eye remover easily and instantly dissolves all  traces of make-up for a soothing and moisturizing effect on the sensitive eye & lip area without any irritation.”

The product is totally liquid and oil free and is good to all skin types. So I took a photo with some eye make-up and also lip make-up to show you what it does.

2014-05-10 10.06.44Please do not care about the mascara…I used an old one and threw it away ^^; Anyways, I used a cotton pad with some of the remover on, rubbing very gently once. You can see that it removes already a lot of the different products (I applied several coats). One or two gentle rubbing more, and all of it were gone. Same for lipsticks and gloss. The remover is very gentle as promised, though you have to be very careful not splashing it in your eyes because I don’t think it’s that gentle… If it’s the case, just wash with water as usual.

2014-05-10 10.53.21My doubt is about waterproofs mascara even if it seems to work well on them. Maybe it is just matter of how much remover I would put on the cotton pad and how much rubbings it needs.

The product is also said to have a power of cleansing during 6 months after opening. I can say it’s right, but don’t keep it too much because now I almost finished it and the two liquid are mixed without me doing it… seems weird ahah ^^;

Will I buy it again? Probably, because it doesn’t cost a lot, and has a good power of removing, leaving the skin not irrated. I’m recommending it as it can last long and it’s very gentle for every type of skins.

Directions for Use: Shake well before each use. Apply to eye & lip area using soft cotton or tissue.


♥ Cheap (paid less than 3€ for 100ml)
♥ Very gentle for all skin types
