Hi guys, I'm not a make up blogger or any other type of blogger at all. But I'm writing this review on the off-chance that someone googles a review and doesn't get an accurate recount of this product.
For clarity sake I'm referring to this
I've tried numerous brands of make up removers and this is by far THE WORST I have ever come across. I hear people saying that they simply put a pad on each lid to soak for awhile and then the make up wipes off easily. Lies. I have just spent the last 15 minutes practically scraping my face. The product did not absorb much make up and left a giant black ring around my eyes which I spent ages cleaning. My eyes still have makeup smeared everywhere and I have given up. I don't want to over-scrub the delicate skin around my eyes so I've resigned myself to the fact that it will never come off and will deal with the residue in the morning.
I'm only using this product cos my sister has gone to sleep and I can't find my own brand. It's the fifth time I've used it and everytime I do, I end up regretting it. I have to use such an excess of product that my eyes are now very irritated and watery. This is the worst thing ever so if you are planning on buying it I sincerely think you shouldn't waste your money. You're better off using plain water cos yo'll get the exact same results and I'm not exaggerating. For reference purposes I had on Lancome Oscillation mascara which is usually rather easy to remove and Revlon colour stay liquid eyeliner which usually takes me an extra swipe or two to completely remove but still easy nonetheless.
I've tried affordable brands like Maybelline and Loreal and also higher end stuff like Lancome, so I have an accurate gauge of the effectiveness of Simple. I do however recommend Rimmel. I bought it as a temporary solution to tide me over until I had time to go to the mall to pick up a replacement bottle of Lancome. I ended up liking it so much that I didn't bother buying the Lancome at all. To be fair I haven't tried the wipes yet and they might be better. But definitely do not buy the bottle form in the picture above. It is awful!
I hope this review helps you in deciding which brand to go for : )
