How to use it
Shake bottle before using it. Soak a cotton pad in the liquid and hold on your eyes for about 20 seconds, then remove the makeup with gentle strokes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
My thoughts on The face shop rice water bright lip and eye remover
I had my hopes set high for this due to the really nice oil cleanser in the same line. The rice water bright cleansing oil.
This is a cleanser made for lip and eye makeup. If you follow the double cleansing method this would be the first step (if you use eye makeup that is). After this you would use an oil cleanser and then a foam cleanser.
The face shop rice water bright lip and eye remover is a two layered milky fluid. It is quite effective in removing my eye makeup. Since it is two layered you need to shake the bottle before using it or it will not be very effective. It is scented, and quite strongly (if you have a sensitive nose like me). The smells floral but still it is not a very bad smell though. It is a watery type of liquid so it doesn’t feel oily on the skin at all.
I do have a problem when trying to remove waterproof mascara or especially waterproof mascara from South Korea or Japan. And one really has to soak the eyelashes before trying to remove it or it will be totally pointless. Regular mascara from Europe or USA is easier to remove and don’t need that much soaking before they are easily wiped off.
The remover does leave some residues on my eyes but it is easily removed when I do the rest of my cleansing. If you get some of the liquid in your eyes it won’t sting, which every brand should really struggle to achieve. Why do some brands make eye makeup remover that stings your eyes? Hmm I really don’t get it.
The packaging is nice and simple, it’s a clear plastic bottle with a screw on lid and the opening is large or small enough so you don’t get too much product out when turning the bottle.
I am not super impressed: But it is a nice remover that does work great if you are sure to soak your eyelashes before trying to remove the mascara.
I give this product 5/7
