I recently ran across Olay Regenerist Eye Make-Up Remover. I loved the price and the idea behind the remover so much that I decided I had to try it for myself.
At $8 USD and some cents for a huge bottle that not only promised to remove my eye makeup but also sported anti-wrinkle treatment that would smooth, hydrate, and regenerate skin around my eyes I was prepared to have the perfect eye makeup remover on the planet.
Seriously, how many eye makeup removers have peptides in the formula? This was some serious eye makeup remover here.
I wanted to love this. I really wanted to love this. But I remembered things that sounds too good to be true normally are.
Turns out this is really not as great as I had hoped for. To begin with it stings terribly. To add insult to the injury of my burning eyes it also doesn’t do that great a job of removing anything.
The formula is a creamy remover that you rub around your eyes or if you want you can pump a few squirts in a cotton pad. It did an ok job tackling my eye shadow but I definately had to do some major tugging to get all the shadow off however it did nothing for my waterproof mascara. After rubbing and rubbing and rubbing some more and finally rinsing my mascara was still right where I had put it earlier that morning. Granted, the product doesn’t actually say anything about removing waterproof mascara nor does it promise that so I really shouldn’t rant but regardless, it didn’t do that great a job with my shadow either.
I liked the fact that it was creamy and I liked the mild, fresh scent of it. I didn’t see too much of a difference in my fine lines after two weeks of use so the promise of regenerating my skin didn’t hold too true. It is moisturizing, wish I could say the same of my other eye makeup removers.
All in all between the stinging sensation and the poor performance in removing shadow and mascara I can’t help but be disappointed.
The Muse wasn’t loving this one!
Didn’t work for you either?
Tell the Muse!
