Can Nivea live up to the challenge of removing mascara, liner and shadow?
I've applied different eye products to my hand and after letting them dry for 20 minutes I am going to see whether or not Nivea Visage Extra Gentle Eye Make-up Remover can remove every last trace. I'm going to soak a cotton pad with the remover and gently swipe over my hand with the remover. Will it work?
Here's a diagram of what I applied..
It took 9 swipes to remove, and only then had it just smudged. I seemed to stain my hand and didn't remove easily. 3/10
This removed really easily in 2 swipes and left no staining. I didn't even have to rub to remove this! 10/10
No7 Eye Pencil:
It took a lot of scrubbing to remove this eyeliner, and that involved tugging hard at my skin! It had still stained my skin after and I felt my skin was sore and red. 1/10
Benefit's Bad Gal Eyeliner:
This was weird.. It felt like the top layer was removed easily but I had to do a bit of rubbing to get the rest off. It did take a lot of scrubbing and there was a clear stain. It wasn't half as bad as the No7 pencil though. 4/10
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara:
I removed this simply and easily, in fact it removed straight away with no pressure at all. 10/10
I had to rub at this mascara a bit, a little too much for the eye area. It hadn't completely vanished either. 3/10
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara:
This didn't fare too well. I had to literally crumble it away with the remover, and the area was very sore afterwards. However this mascara was waterproof! 0/10
On The Eye:
I also tried it on my actual eye makeup which was looking very worn-in after wearing it all day. I wasn't very pleased with the results, as my mascara had just been caused to flake and the eyeliner was hardly removed. They eyeshadow did remove quite easily though (MAC).
