Since I’ve been so busy scoring left and right with awesome eye makeup removers at my drugstore I thought, “heyz let’s go ahead and try something else new…” Pushing my luck I purchased Wet n’ Wild Beauty Benefits Beyond Eye Makeover Remover and proceeded to have my head examined.
I’m such a dope. I should know lightening never strikes twice. I was lucky with Clean & Clear and again lucky with L’Oreal but this…this is utter rubbish.
Jump for it!
Wet n’ Wild is going all green and organic or whatever you want to call the current craze of hippie loving cosmetics out there (no offense green friendly peeps but the market is getting a little too saturated with this stuff that it’s getting on my nerves by now!).
Along with cosmetics in the new Wet n’ Wild Beauty Benefits Collection they released a $4.99, 3.8oz size of eye make remover. It claims to remove waterproof mascara but I don’t think so.
First off it burns like acid. OW! It hurts something fierce. It also has the consistency of water mixed with dish soap, not good, not good at all. Oh and it also smells like dish soap mixed with gasoline, pretties (insert sarcasm there).
Seriously though between the burning sensation, the gross smell, and the fact that it doesn’t do all that great a job removing my shadow never mind my waterproof mascara, this one is a very safe skip.
As per a reader’s request I snagged a bottle of L’Oreal Eye Makeup Remover for review. Um dear reader you owe me $8.99 dude (e-mail me I’ll tell you where to send the check! hehe). This stuff is expensive. 4oz for $9 bucks? Shut up!
I’m such a cheese that I totally can adjust to splurging $10 bucks on Sephora Waterproof Mascara in the same size but walk me into a drugstore and tell me to buy eye makeup remover for almost the same price and I’ll bulk, kick my feet up, and possibly throw myself on the floor in a tantrum. What? It’s been known to happen, I bet my best friend Jai has pictures of said events.
Important question here is the fact of whether it’s worth that price?

Poor Lancome so many brands adapting it’s dual phase remover and trying to dupe it, Clean & Clear comes close, watch your back Lancome. L’Oreal Eye Makeup Remover has been tried by the Muse…they have those two blue versions one for regular eye makeup and one for waterproof…no freaking likey. Hates both. Now we have this new version which is an oil free, dual phase remover a la the Clean & Clear I recently reviewed for you.
First off, hello expensive I’m so snubbing you for the price alone. $8.99 for 4oz is just too much. As always I have no problem shelling it out for a posh brand but drugstore..come on…9 bucks? Dude, for serious? You wound me. Ok, let’s give it the benefit of the doubt and say that the super store that shall not be named (Pssttt Walmart) probably has it cheaper. Soo…what are we looking at maybe $2 bucks off? $3 if I’m lucky. Brings it down to around $5.99 or $6 bucks…that price I can deal with and that’s about what it’s worth.
The formula…it works well. It works really well. I begrudgingly admit that it removes eye makeup including waterproof mascara very well. However, it does suffer the same problem as the Clean & Clear remover being that you really have to saturated the cotton pad to get everything off your eye. This isn’t like Lancome Bi-Facil, it’s not going to be one swipe and everything is gone. It’s more along the lines of a two to three cotton pad job.
Overall, the remover is quite good but I won’t recommend because of it’s price, it’s small size, and the fact that I’m using a ton of product to get all my makeup off (if I have to use a ton of product that’s not exactly saving myself money now is it?). Would I buy it again? Yes, for sure if it’s cheap or buy 1, get 1 50% off or some such deal arises. As with Clean & Clear it’s not going to take over my Sephora remover but it’s a hell of a good runner up. Good stuff but needs a few tweaks to make it perfect!
Takes alot to impress this girl when it comes to drugstore skincare but Clean & Clear has surprised me again and again the past week and half with a great release of products that bring plenty of quality to the table and an inexpensive price tag to boot.
New Clean & Clear Facial Cleansing Wipes, likey!
Click it for the review!
When I find makeup removing wipes that works it’s much like winning the lottery. Seriously how many wipes really work well out there? I can’t name a ton. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to MAC Cleansing Wipes you’ll be happy to know Clean & Clean Make Up Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes are just as good and only run about $5-$6 bucks! Hello cheapness!
There isn’t much special about the swipes in regards to cloth or anything like that. It’s a pretty standard wipe as with any wipe. The difference between it and any other wipes is it’s ability to get the job done right. The wipes are saturated nicely with an oil-free remover and a fresh clean scent. They do a great job of quick clean up of eye makeup, waterproof mascara, and other gook that’s built up on your face.
First off, I’d honestly never use a wipe to clean my face every night. I reserve cleaning wipes for days I’m being a lazy bum and can’t be bothered to do my entire skincare cleaning regime, believe you me it’s a regime. These are rather fab for whisking away all my makeup in a quick swipe. Believe it or not they even do a damn good job on waterproof mascara. Mind you, I didn’t get it ALL off but I did get a majority of it off my lashes, nice job. They are on par with MAC wipes aside from the fact that they aren’t as thick but besides this minor detail I’d say they make a rather great budget dupe.
Overall, Clean & Clear has impressed me yet again and restored my faith that good skincare can be found at my local drugstore.
I swear it’s been years since I’ve used Clean & Clear and I almost forgot how much I loved it when I was using it. The new Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser reminded me why it was my skincare regime way back when with it’s fresh scent and ability to get my skin sparkling clean, swing! Likey!
You know what to do for the review…!
Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser is a brand new oil-free foaming cleanser. It comes in a 6 oz pump for $5.99 (I seen it at Target for $5.49) and is a foaming cleanser. I seriously have an obsession with foaming cleansers, is it me or do you feel the same way?
A pump or two will do your entire face and it’s gentle enough not to dry out skin. It has a super fresh pleasant scent plus did I mention it’s a foam? Loves it! Supposedly it even removes waterproof mascara but I can’t say as I normally remove my mascara prior to washing my face, I never trust a cleanser do it not even my beloved Shu oil.
With it’s inexpensive price tag and rich lathering formula it’s a winner for me. Muse Approved for Purchase! Likes it alot.
If you’re looking for a cheap, inexpensive cleanser that won’t break the bank, cleans your face, smells fresh and clean, and doesn’t dry your skin out or clog pores I’d say grab yourself some Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser.
Good stuff, ’nuff said (and you know what a nit picker I am about skincare so this is def one to pick up!).
I’m partitioning Frankie Valli to change the lyrics to Grease is NOT the world in honor of Lush Grease Lighting Spot Treatment.
But don’t tell my sister…she thinks the Earth, the Moon, the Stars revolves around the Jersey Boys…changing the lyrics could be like breaking the law to her.
Lush Grease Lighting is the latest skincare treat from Lush for treating spots, pimples, and all the uglies that pop up on our skin.
Check it after the jump!
Lush Grease Lighting is a blend of witch hazel, thyme, calming rosemary, and antibacterial tea tree water to create an antiseptic for keeping pimples well under control. Mind you this isn’t a skin treatment but a spot treatment. What’s that mean? It means if you have a fat pimple on your forehead before a blind date tomorrow you can dab some of this on to zap that spot right out of your hair. It works a treat on minor pimples, small formations of pimples on places like your chin or forehead, etc….it works to dry pimples out, treat them, and reduce the size of the pimple all while delivering a healthy dose of treatment to clear your skin up.
I have a nice size pimple on the side of my face at the moment which I’m not up for discussing with you but I will for the sake of my review. I applied some Grease Lighting on it last night and the pimple is considerably smaller. I imagine with another dab of this it’ll probably be gone by morning w00t!
The formula is a watery, runny gel which you can tap onto blemishes easily. It’s very gentle so it doesn’t dry out your entire face but it does dry out the area you’re treating however not so much that you’re left with cracked, flaky skin.
If you’re looking for a spot treatment to save your skin Lush Grease Lighting is the way to go. It’s $9.95 and available now from Lush Mail Order or your local Lush store. I trust Lush skincare with my life so it’s a joy to have a quick spot treatment for the times that a rare pimple pops up on my face!
