And another Nivea Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

I recently discussed my rather disappointing experience with the dual effect eye makeup remover by Nivea, which just didn’t seem to work for me. I decided to try this lotion with Chamomille extract to see if this version is a bit better for me.

Nivea Waterproof Eye Makeup remover lotionUnlike my usual oil based dual cleansers, this comes in the form of a white lotion. Simple apply to a cotton pad, carefully press to the eye, and remove the make-up gently. I have to say that despite being marketed for waterproof mascara, it just isn’t that great on its own and won’t remove all traces of make-up.

I still love this though in combination with an oil based remover or on it’s own in the mornings. It is great to use after an oily product to get rid of the last traces of make-up and that oily film on your eyes. I also occasionally grab it in the morning if any traces of make-up are still visible (read: I have been lazy the night before) or to simply refresh my eyes.

Not a winner on it’s own then, but still a decent product. I have had no sensitivity issues with the product, so good news there as well.

Laatst besprak ik mijn teleurstellende ervaring met de twee fasen oog make-up reiniger van Nivea, dat werkte echt niet voor mij. Ik besloot om ook de lotion met kamille extract te proberen om te zien of deze versie beter is voor mij.

Dit product komt in de vorm van een witte creme, in tegenstelling tot mijn gebruikelijke olie producten. Breng een beetje aan op een wattenschijfje, druk voorzichtig op het oog en verwijder zachtjes de make-up. Hoewel dit product word aangeraden voor waterproof mascara is het alleen niet genoeg om alle restjes hardnekkige make-up te verwijderen.

Ik vind het echter wel een goed product in combinatie met een olie product of alleen in de ochtend. Het werkt echt super na een olie oog reiniger om de laatste restjes make-up te verwijderen en dat vervelende olie achtige laagje van je ogen te halen. Ik gebruik het ook wel eens ‘s ochtends als er nog wat mascara restjes zitten (lees: ik was de avond ervoor lui) of om mijn ogen op te frissen.

Op zichzelf geen echte winnaar maar wel een prima product. Ik had ook geen problemen met mijn gevoelige ogen gehad dus dat is altijd goed nieuws.

    I love how you have written your post in English but also in Dutch. Great review, I have been seeing these around lately and I wasn’t sure wether to buy it or not. It really reminds me of the ‘reinigingsmelk’, which Nivea also makes. šŸ™‚

      Thanks šŸ™‚ Are you Dutch as well?
      It is a little like the reinigingsmelk but this is supposed to work better on waterproof makeup.

        Yes I am! I like the reinigingsmelk but I use it more to get the last bits of makeup off as it usually doesn’t remove all of my makeup at once. šŸ˜¦

          Leuk šŸ™‚ Helemaal mee eens, prima als laatste reiniging maar niet goed genoeg voor de hele makeup.

            Precies! Ik gebruik er nog micellair water voor en toner na.

    I used to use a cream based eye makeup remover – the main issue I had was that it had the tendency to get in my eyes! I would have blurry vision every night when removing my makeup. šŸ˜›

      Oh the blurry vision always remains a problem. I find the most effective ones give me a little trouble with that. For me, oil based remover first and when that leaves a little blur sweep over it with your normal cleanser.
