Here’s an item from my Cult Beauty goody bag I had the opportunity to test and fall in love with. I have tried many other makeup removers, some I have liked very much, others I didn’t like at all, but the majority certainly tends to stay in the “average” department. Not this one though. This was was great stuff! So far, the only one with the best characteristics in a makeup remover for moi.

This products is described as follows:

From Japan’s leading skincare brand, Complete Make-Up Remover Oil marries natural ingredients with scientific methods to grant you a squeakily clean, yet hydrated complexion. Harnessing the antioxidant powers of Astaxanthin (after which the brand is named), this delicate oil melts away the day and provides an invisible barrier against the ageing effects of free radicals. Collagen then helps repair and delay the visible signs of skin ageing by improving elasticity and overall firmness.

Pretty ambitious for a product with the main objective of removing your makeup. I didn’t have to use that long to notice how good the product is.

What’s good about it

  • One pump of this bad boy and your makeup is completely off! I only have the sample size which come with a dropper system instead of a pump, and with a couple of drops I can do my face and eyebrows (and a couple more drops with hard to remove mascara!)
  • The formula is strong enough to remove makeup, but it is really gentle with the skin. My favorite part about this product is that is does not leave your skin dry like a piece of cardboard, but soft like a baby’s butt!
  • I was quite surprised by the price. At £19 (roughly 23€ or $), it is one of the cheapest high end makeup removing products I’ve used (such as M•A•C’s Cleanse Off Oil / Tranquil, which retails at 27.50€)

Here’s the sample size I’ve been using for the past month. I still have enough for another I think!

This is the dropper system of the sample size. Considering the full size has a pump I presume you’s need only about half a pump to dispense what you need

UPDATE JUN10: I got my full size product in the mail and I wanted to show you!

What’s not so good about it

  • I’ve been using for nearly a month and I’ve yet to find something lacking about it. It is truly good!

This amount is all you need to remove makeup of your entire face. If you have a waterproof mascara and/or very strong eye makeup, you may need one or two more of this amount. It is really not a lot!

This is one I am definitely repurchasing as soon as I’m out of my sample (which seems to last forever!)
