I don't know why but in the last couple of weeks my face has decided to break out. My already oily skin has started to get worse, my red tones are even brighter and I've started to get spots everywhere. I decided to change my daily cleansing routine to try and sort this out. I started with getting a different makeup remover.
I didn't look up reviews on any products this time, as I wanted to get something on a whim and see how it worked out. I went into Superdrug and looked at all the different brands they had. For some reason, this stood out to me. The bottle is a different shape to most, but the most eye-catching feature is the two toned liquid. The back of the bottle states "The blue phase, enriched with gentle oils, instantly removes waterproof and long-lasting makeup. The clear phase is a soft lotion to leave your skin with a pleasant fresh sensation". I was a bit worried about adding extra oils to my face, but decided to take a chance.
The makeup remover is more or less scentless, something I was pleased about. With other removes sometimes the scent is overpowering and hurts my eyes. Unfortunately when applying the remover, I noticed how greasy it felt on my skin, despite the 'non-greasy' label. It added extra shine to my face and I didn't like the feeling it left me with. However, it did remove all traces of my makeup with ease. After about ten minutes the oils sunk into my skin and the greasy feeling was gone. In the morning, my face did feel soft and refreshed.
The product does what it says and did minimalise the red tones in my face, but I'm not sure I can get over the grease it left on my face. It did only last for about ten minutes, but all I wanted to do during that time was scrub it off. If other people are not bothered by this sensation then I would certainly recommend this product, I just don't think it's for me.
