AMW Reviews: Benefit Remove It Makeup Remover

Happy Humpy Day AMW Friends!
Ahhh, the joys of makeup removing (not!).  I tend to get lazy at times..ahm...most of the time and Mr. AMW would always point out the extra "liner" or mascara that was left even after I washed my face!  Thank you Lord for sending me an "OC" husband who takes care of my eyes as I ended up visiting an ophthalmologist in the past because my eyes got irritated from mascara "leftovers".  *laughs*  Oh, at that time, it wasn't as funny!

Through the years, I don't mind investing on various makeup removers (from drugstore to high end) as long as they earn raves from online reviewers.  Yes, I've found some good and not-so-good ones but that doesn't stop me from trying MORE! :)

Benefit says ---

Removing your makeup is as important as applying it. Remove it makeup remover effectively removes eye makeup, including long-wearing & waterproof formulas, with an oil-free, no-rinse formula.

Size: 177.4 mL 6.0 US fl. oz.

AMW says ---
  • Super cute bottle.  Great on top of your vanity table.
  • Lightly scented.
  • Can easily remove makeup on face and eyes.
  • Oil-free. No greasy-feel.
  • No sting.
  • No eye irritations.
  • If you're using super waterproof eyeliner and mascara, may take some time to completely remove it.
  • The "pour" jar which can accidentally spill if not handled properly.
Great makeup remover that doesn't sting or blur out my vision.

  • Best applied on cotton pad for easier makeup removal.
  • For eye makeup removal, close your eyes and press the cotton pad with Benefit Remove It Makeup Remover for a couple of seconds and gently rub off makeup.  Repeat on the other side of the cotton.
  • If you are clumsy (like me), transfer some of the makeup remover on a smaller container with small stout like that from Keeping It Together (KIT), or purchase small containers from Landmark or Beabi.

Yes!  I'm on my 2nd bottle. 

To whom do I recommend this to?
People who wears contacts and have sensitive eyes and skin.

  1. There should definitely be a better way to pour out the product but man, the packaging is sooooo beautiful!!! This would look just so pretty on my vanity!

    1. I agree! But the bottle just makes me smile each time I use it!!! I'll definitely reuse the bottle!

  2. Pond's Cold Cream pa rin ako because it's so affordable and effective -- but I feel like I'll end up buying a bottle of this one day, just because it's so pretty! It's the kind I'll keep around even when I've used up all the contents :P

  3. I don't think I'll stop using my Pond's Cold Cream because it's so inexpensive and effective, BUT I feel like I'm going to end up buying this one day, just so I can always have an elixir-like bottle on my table :P

    1. Same here, in between I always have Pond's Cold cream! I love using it too and its inexpensive! :)

  4. The packaging is really beautiful. What a shame it's not very practical too.

    1. You know what? I kinda got used to the lovely packaging just because it's beautiful! :D

  5. Right now I'm using Etude House's make-up remover tissue and they are not bad but they kindda slippery without any texture. But this remover sounds so great :)

    1. Yes it is, non slippery at all and texture feels like water!!!

  6. didn't expect it to perform so well!! I am certainly one who needs to depot to a smaller bottle,can totally forsee myself killing this bottle in the first week :D

    1. Same here! When I first got it, what's in my mind was "wow! Housed in such a beautiful bottle I'm sure it's not as effective"! Look who's got the surprise of her life! :D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
