Faces Hydro Makeup Remover Review

After running out of my HG L’Oreal gentle lip and eye makeup remover, I picked up this bottle of Faces hydro makeup remover from an online beauty products store  on a whim. Sniffing the aqua green colored liquid from the glass bottle, it turns out Faces hydro makeup remover is one of the best smelling makeup removers I’ve ever used.

Faces Hydro Makeup Remover ReviewFaces hydro makeup remover comes in a semi transparent glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle is beautifully packed in an aqua green carton and contains the same colored liquid inside. The pump packaging makes the product travel-friendly and convenient to use.

Also, since it’s a see-through glass bottle, you can easily keep a tab on your use and know when it’s time to buy a new one.

Texture and scent:

Faces hydro makeup remover has a clear, aqua green colored watery texture that smells of peaches and green apples. I love the way it smells and feels like water on the skin. Also, it doesn’t irritate my sensitive waterlines and removes makeup easily without leaving any film or greasy residue behind.

Performance and effectiveness:

To use, I put two pumps of hydro makeup remover on a cotton pad and swipe it all over my face, neck, eyes and lips. The direction on the bottle says to wait for a few minutes before wiping it off but since I often remove my makeup in a hurry, I generally wipe it off almost immediately.

And I’m happy to state that the stuff works even in that instant. It takes off all makeup without any tugging, pulling or causing any sliminess and cloudy vision. Price is affordable too, neither too expensive, nor too easy on the pocket. But given the fact you only use two pumps of the product, it should last a while, at least for a couple of months if you use makeup almost daily.

Also, the water based formula works fine for my sensitive eyes and oily skin. It neither makes my skin feel tight and nor too oily on using. However, while this makeup remover feels nice and soothing on my skin and eyes, I have noticed that it doesn’t handle real deal waterproof stuff quite well.  You have to practically soak the cotton ball with the remover to completely remove waterproof mascaras and eyeliners.

But for its lovely, light apple scent and gentle action on my skin, this has currently successfully replaced my HG L’Oreal gentle eye and face makeup remover.

Overall Take:

Faces Hydro Makeup Remover ReviewOn the whole, Faces hydro makeup remover is wonderful performing water based face and eye makeup remover. Rich in antioxidants, it’s gentle on the skin and mighty moisturizing. Plus, it works fast without causing any oiliness or breakouts. The only con, however is that it requires a little more effort on removing waterproof makeup effectively.

Do give this makeup remover a try, if you have oily to sensitive skin or looking for an effective makeup remover that does not sting your eyes.
