Review: Clinelle Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Clinelle Eye & Lip Makeup Remover 80ml MYR 33.90

I have been wearing makeup lately, especially in the weekends..and LOVING IT as well. Though it's all fun and lovely, I never forget the importance of removing them thoroughly at the end of the day. I always rely on my trusty L'occitane Fresh Face Water to do the job well.

For the eyes, I always fall back on my Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover. Though it is not of organic ingredients, it does the job effectively. It was running low and I decided to venture out to try other natural based and cheaper alternatives. And I found Clinelle. I have used some of the products from this brand in the past and it's not bad...and some not too great either. Well, let's see if this does the job...

Product Description

Formulated to gently and effectively remove makeup and impurities without stripping skin of its natural moisture balance. Skin is rejuvenated while restoring and maintaining skin's natural moisture.
No artificial coloring, no artificial fragrance, no comedogenic ingredients, no lanolin, no mineral oil and no SD-alcohol.

( I threw away the box and couldn't find the list on web either....)

My Experience

Product is of a liquid-y dark yellow gel and unscented. I use this mainly for removing eye shadows, liner, mascara and lipstick because it is mainly targeted for these specific areas.

I find that it does not remove my eye makeup thoroughly as much as I would like it too. I have to repeat at least 3-4 times for it to be clear of eye liner and mascara. The more times I need to gently swipe my eyes, the more of it being prone to harshness and stretching of the delicate area. Now, that is not good. If you want me to compare with Lancome, I need only to repeat the 2nd time to see it cleaned.

For the lips, it does help to remove some remnants of the lipstick does leave some tingling sensation after you swipe it. I am not sure if this is a sign of sensitivity or not.


I started using this in November and honestly, this product does not wow me. I think I stopped using this for my eye area in within a month and have since then, use another product as a replacement.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.
