Product Review : The Original Makeup Eraser (Sephora)
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..
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.
Instructions on the plastic and also a small "Thank You" card with instructions behind it.
So, as stated in the instructions, you need to wash it first before using and so I did that.
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 :
Its 100% Polyester according to the label but to me, it just feels like an ordinary microfiber towel.
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!
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.
Wasn't as dirty as I thought it would be but definitely did its job on removing my makeup.
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.
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!
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.
This is by far the best makeup remover I have ever used.
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.
