Sasatinnie Supreme Express Eye Makeup Remover Review

Sasa is a Asian drugstore of sorts which luckily enough also has a website,, that ships worldwide. If you haven’t ordered from Sasa before I highly suggest it as they carry a huge range of skincare, color cosmetics, etc…from various Asian brands.

During one of my recent sprees with Sasa I ended up exploring their house brand, Sasatinnie, and ended up popping one of their Supreme Express Eye Makeup Removers in my cart.

I’m always on the hunt for a new, exciting bi-phase eye makeup remover to try as I simply hate paying for the costly Lancome version, ouch! Dunno why I’m so frugal about makeup remover but I am.

Let’s take a peek at Sasatinnie Supreme Express Eye Makeup Remover.

This is a tiny bottle but actually it contains 2 oz of makeup remover so don’t let the small bottle fool you! It was six bucks and change and I was quite excited about getting it in the mail and trying it. I was kinda hopeful this would turn into some sort of Lancome dupe. Granted, Sasa does come via airmail so not sure how much money you’d be saving my ordering this regularly but I felt comfortable ordering it and hopefully loving it enough to replace Lancome since I order so often from the site.

Like Lancome it’s a bi-phase eye makeup remover that you shake up, apply to a cotton pad, and use to remove eyeshadow and waterproof makeup.

Doesn’t work.

It does a good enough job with eyeshadow but waterproof mascara or just mascara in general it pretty much leaves behind. I expect and want my eye makeup remover to remove really tough eye makeup prior to going into a full face cleanse and this sadly left behind alot of product. Like I said it did find whisking away my eyeshadow but my mascara it didn’t do much for.

Le sigh!

I won’t be purchasing this again sadly so I guess its back to good old Lancome for me!

If you’re daring enough to try it you can purchase at, perhaps if you’re a light eye makeup wearer it might be ideal for you!

    Hi muse! How was your Xmas? Hopefully good. Have you tried the makeup remover from Merle Norman before? Its quite similar to LancΓ΄me so you might like it. I found that it was great for taking off stubborn mascara. Can’t remember how much it costs. You get 10% off during your bday month though.

    • the Muse

      hi Melissa how are you? It was great thanks honey! πŸ™‚ and yours? Haven’t tried it but I’ll see about checking it out, thanks!

  • Tracy

    Is Lancome really the best out there in terms of eye make up remover ? Should we try cleansing oil on the eye area ? I also use Bi-Facil, but I find it just a bit harsh for my sensitive eyes but can’t find anything else that can remove eye make up !

    • the Muse

      I’ve never dip a cotton pad in a cleansing oil and removed makeup with it tracy πŸ™‚ I really like Lancome, some people may think it’s the best but that’s all a matter of taste πŸ˜€ There are so many different removers out there I imagine you’ll find one that doesn’t irritate your eyes πŸ™‚

  • Melissa

    Thanks for saving this from my next sasa order. Do you have any other bi-phase recs I should try from Asia?

  • kimkats

    Bummer about that Muse… So disappointing when sometihng doesn ‘t work out. Have you tried clinique’s take the day off? I like it better than the Lancome, and it’s buckets cheaper! Or the neutrogena version of take the day off? I think it’s called something like oil free eye makeup remover? It works really well too, and you can find it on sale now and then… πŸ™‚ Oh, both are bi-phase products. they work so well!

    • the Muse

      yeah kim sigh! πŸ™ No, will have to give it a whirl thanks girl! neutrogena version I didn’t love sadly πŸ™ I have to try clinique’s next time I’m at counter!

  • catazure

    I like an oil-free and worked my way from expensive Lancome and Clinique down to the Target store brand which has the added advantage of smelling like roses:)

    I know that this comment has nothing to do with this review, (which was lovely, by the way) but I just wanted to say that I was having a really terrible day, so I dropped by here and it really brightened up my day. I’m really grateful for all the amazing reviews you have here. Thank you so much Muse, you really brighten my day!

    • the Muse

      awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww katie! this comment made my day ;-D I’m glad I helped ease the storm clouds. Believe me I had some seriously craptastic day yesterday phew! So I can totally relate chica HUGS!

  • Michelle

    Have you tried the Misa brand bi-phase eye makeup remove? I think it works really well and they often have it on sale.

  • Tiffany C.

    Hi Muse,
    I use and love one from Target. It’s a bi-phase as well and it’s the Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. It’s $5.99 for 5 oz and a little goes a long way. It doesn’t burn your eyes and it removes everything!!!

  • Comrade Garlic

    Etude House makes a pretty decent one, Mascara Remover. I love the name, straight to the point. It’s pretty oily, so may bother sensitive eyes. But it removes my Lancome Doll Eyes (horrible mascara BTW) and YSL Singular with very little effort.

  • Boone

    Did you ever try Clean & Clear’s bi-phase Soothing Eye Makeup Remover? Talk about *le sigh*… works just as well as Lancome IMO, feels really soothing, and the bottle contains 5.5 oz for about $6. In other words, it is DA BOMB, so of course they discontinued it last year. :'(

    I very rarely hoard discontinued products, but I bought five bottles of this stuff for my stash. I just opened the fourth of those five bottles, so I guess I’ll be on the hunt for an effective, reasonably priced bi-phase makeup remover soon, too. πŸ™ πŸ™

    • the Muse

      oh don’t talk about it boone! πŸ™ It’s gone πŸ™ I loved that stuff!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alicia

    Cleansing express bi-phase makeup remover is not bad in my opinion. You should give it a try if you can get to one!

    • the Muse

      hi alicia I have it πŸ™‚ reviewed it a few times, def nice but not my hg yet!

  • Licheenut

    I’m loving Sonia Kashuk’s eye makeup remover–gets *almost* all of my Fairydrops mascara.

  • PG

    Clinique’s Take the Day Off is super effective. It comes in a clear purple bottle.

    • Debbie

      Definitely the best. Ive tried them all – cheap drugstore brands and super expensive spa lines. Cliniques works best by far – and at 19.50 I consider it a bargain!!!
