Product Review : The Original Makeup Eraser (Sephora)


Hey y'all!
I finally got my hands on the Makeup Eraser from Sephora a few days ago!
What is it? It's a cloth that claims to remove all makeup especially waterproof makeup.
I was kind of skeptical when I saw the reviews from a few of my favourite Youtubers.
So far I have seen good reviews on Youtube and Sephora.

So here I am with my own review..
 The Original Makeup Eraser (Rm95.00)

When I first saw it in Sephora, I was quite surprised to see how small it was actually.
From the Youtube reviews, it looks a lot bigger but it didn't really matter.


 This part made me even more skeptical every time I read it.

 This is how the packaging looks like when you take it out of the box.
Instructions on the plastic and also a small "Thank You" card with instructions behind it.

 I have friends asking how many times can it be used and from what it says, let's hope it does reaches 1,000 washes.
So, as stated in the instructions, you need to wash it first before using and so I did that.

 Here is my face with Bbia waterproof eyeliner that I got from Hermo which I talked about in my previous post here.
I'm also using waterproof mascara from Maybelline and its my go to mascara every single time I put my makeup on.
Sorry for having no lipstick here because my lips were too dry and chapped and I hated the feeling of the flaky skin on my lips.

The cloth has 2 sides :
One side with a smoother surface which will be used for removing the makeup with warm water.
Its 100% Polyester according to the label but to me, it just feels like an ordinary microfiber towel.

The other side is a slightly fluffier and rougher side which will be used to exfoliate the skin after all the makeup is being removed.

 Here I've prepared some warm water and time to put it to the test!

 According to the instructions, you need to use a circular motion to rub the makeup off which I find it REALLY hard to do especially on the eye area.
Its not the best thing to do to be honest and my eyes felt a bit of a sting around the eyelid because of how much pressure I had to use to get the makeup off. A few of my lashes came off and I'm not happy about that. I already have very little lashes! I cant afford to lose anymore!

 Here is how clean it got on one side of my face while I left the other side of my face with makeup on.
I know you guys must be thinking I used a makeup remover to clean my face to get it this clean but I didn't.
I only used the Makeup Eraser with warm water so yeah, this is my clean face on one side.

 I only used a small section of the cloth to wipe off the makeup and this is what is left on the cloth.
Wasn't as dirty as I thought it would be but definitely did its job on removing my makeup.

 So I continued with cleaning the other side of my face that still had makeup on and this is how the cloth looks now.
It was pretty painful with the circular motion around the eye area again thinking it might work but for larger surfaces like the cheeks and forehead,
it was fine.

 I even used the other side to exfoliate my face after removing everything and here is the final result ...

 All clean and sorry for the ugly photo of myself.
This is why I don't post pictures of myself because I hate showing the world how ugly my face is with all the scars, large pores and pimples everywhere. I'm just shy when it comes to being in front of the camera but thank you guys for still wanting to read my blog after seeing this ugly picture of me!

Anyways,
my face was all clean and I still wasn't sure how clean it was so I grabbed my makeup remover wipes
and decided to wipe my face to see if there were any makeup left.

 I'm using the Biore Makeup Remover wipes which I cannot live without!
This is by far the best makeup remover I have ever used.

This is what's left on my face after using my makeup remover wipes.
VERY VERY little bit of foundation which I wiped off from the hairline areas and also little bits of the cloth that shedded from
the Makeup Eraser but other than that, there were nothing left on my face!

So here's my final thoughts about the Makeup Eraser :

My rating for this product would be 3/5 stars.

- It is reusable which is a big plus there which means you can save money from buying makeup removers all the time 
and also its easy to carry around anywhere.

- It is dryer and dryer sheet friendly which is also a good thing. 
I can just easily chug this cloth into the washing machine and clean it.

- The circular motion thing around my eye area made it really REALLY hard to remove the makeup until I rubbed it off normally 
like how I would do with a makeup remover wipes. (A few of my lashes fell out *sobs* )

- It makes the skin REALLY dry and it stings a lot after using this because of how much pressure that was used to remove everything 
which I was really upset about. (Use a cooling and hydrating face mask after using this cloth and your skin will thank you)

- Still needs cleaning with a makeup remover to clean the face to be sure its clean which is very time consuming.

- Price wise, its not worth it for how this cloth works. 
Its quite pricey for such a small microfiber towel and also not really an easy product to use.
