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.
Ingredients


AMW says ---
Pros
  • 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.
Cons
  • 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.
Overall
Great makeup remover that doesn't sting or blur out my vision.

Tips
  • 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.
  • To learn more about Benefit's newest products, Like them on Facebook.

Yes!  I'm on my 2nd bottle. 

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

Where to purchase and how much?

  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
