**EDITED** Review: Etude House Lip and Eye Makeup Remover

Gentle yet highly effective, this double formulated lip & eye remover easily and instantly dissolves all traces of makeup for a soothing and moisturizing effect on the sensitive lip & eye area without any irritation.
100ml (3.38 fl.oz.)

I edited this review because it sounded so negative that it seems as if this product was bereft of any good point. Actually this is a very nice product. It is just that I expected that it can easily remove stubborn waterproof mascara and eyeliner. 

The last time I used a liquid makeup remover was years ago during college when I received a Lancome Bi-Facil Makeup Remover. I thought that this product will deliver perfectly like Lancome's.  The formulation is a blend of oil and water. So, you really have to shake the product well before using it. This only costs 198 pesos and is probably one of the cheapest makeup remover in the local market.The name of this product is quite weird - lip and eye remover. They better add "makeup" before the remover to prevent any confusion. hehe
 I love the fact that most Korean Products have an expiration date imprinted on their packaging. I have high expectations on this product because of the good reviews it has online. 

The formula of this makeup remover is perfect for those with dry skin. After using this, it makes my skin soft and silky.  This has a very gentle feel on the skin. It does not sting nor irritate my eyes. It does not have a weird scent and taste. It does a great job of removing eyeshadows, undereye concealer and lipstick. However, I have a hard time using it to remove my mascara and eyeliner. Both mascara and eyeliner I often use are not even water proof. I need to pour a lot of product on the cotton pad to remove my mascara and eyeliner. Moreover, I need to rub the cotton pad on my eyes to remove all the excess product. Here is my attempt on removing my eyeliner and mascara using this product.
 It is very obvious that it did not remove my eyeliner and mascara totally. This is what I dislike about this makeup remover. It does not remove all the eyeliner and mascara easily. Thus, I need to to exert extra effort. Also I just bought this product two weeks ago and my bottle is almost half empty because I have to pour loads of product on the cotton pad to make this effectively remove my non waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Contradistinguished to my all time favorite makeup remover (Ponds Cold Cream) that can last for months. 

Will I buy again? Never. YES. 
However I prefer using my Ponds Cold Cream in removing eye makeup. 

Btw, I want to share with you this funny conversation with BF. He commented the other day while he was reading my blog - "Talaga bang sinasabi mo pag ayaw mo ang product?" I answered -- "Naman! Kelangan ba magsinungaling ako?!?! haha

Godbless everyone!

  1. I've never used cream to remove makeup. I take it you just apply and wipe away, right?

    1. You have to blend it and after a while wipe it away.. :) It works very well on me. :)

    2. Natry ko na din Ponds Cold cream!!:) I'm using Jergens cold cream to remove my makeup:)

  2. Have you tried Maybelline's, sis? How does it compare? :)

  3. Maybelline's Lip and Eye makeup remover is 10x better than etude's in my opinion hihi

  4. I tried Maybelline before, but I don't like it :( It's kinda oily. I would love to try this though, I hate removing makeup on my eyes pa naman. Sobrang hirap tanggalin :(
