Review: Victoria's Secret total makeup remover

Hey everyone!!

Awhile back Chrissy commented and wanted to know how this makeup remover worked so I did a formal review on it now that I've been using it for a few months.

What it Claims: Take it off. This gentle, dual-action formula gently removes makeup from lids, lashes, lips and all over the face while leaving skin refreshed and silky soft.

VS tip: Shake well, then saturate cotton pad and glide over skin until all traces of makeup are removed.

Price: $8 for 4 fl.oz

Where you can buy it: Only at Victoria's Secret stores, I can't seem to find it on their site.

My Rating: 5++ Peace signs

The good: This is definitely my favorite makeup remover! It takes off eye makeup extremely fast and well. It breaks down eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara very well. You do have to shake it to activate but it doesn't leave an oily residue on your skin at all. It leaves a sort of fresh clean feeling on your skin. I don't use it to remove foundation but I did try it and it removed all my face makeup throughly. I also like that you don't have to use a ton at one time so this bottle does last a good while even if you wear a full face everyday.

The bad:  If you're like me and have extrememly oily lids and you have to wear two eye shadow bases than this remover doesn't break them both down very well. Personally after everything else is removed my lids feel sticky since there's still primer left over and even after going over it another time it's still there so I end up just using my face wash to get it all off. (BUT if you don't have to wear two bases it does just fine removing the one)

Overall: I LOVE it!! I would definitely recommend giving it a try, it may sound pricey for a makeup remover but it really does last.

If you have any questions on something I might have left out or further details on this products please let me know!

$8 does sound pricey. I use neutrogena oil free. The blue bottle, have you tried that one? is it better than it? I heard real good things about the sonia kashuk eye makeup remover but it's like $10 a bottle so I've been hesitant to buy it. Great review!

Thanks for the review! I do have one question though... hehe~ You said you use two eyeshadow bases. Which ones are they? How are they?
