It’s important to make sure you remove all traces of your makeup at the end of the day. Depending on my chosen makeup look, sometimes I really struggle to remove all of my eye makeup at the end of the day. I’ve tried lots of makeup removers over the years, but I recently wanted to try a more natural option, so I decided to get the Burt’s Bees Micellar Cleansing Water. This product can be purchased at Target and similar retailers for about $10.
The bottle is pretty big for the price (it’s 12 fl oz) so it will last quite a while. I typically use a cotton pad and apply some micellar water before applying to my eye and removing my eye makeup. I will say that this seems to be great for sensitive eyes. It’s very gentle and never burns my eyes. It also doesn’t leave any residue at all like some oil-based makeup removers do. However, it also requires more effort to remove the makeup. I feel like I have to scrub, which is not good. You don’t want to be too abrasive with the delicate skin around your eyes, and tugging too much could also damage your eyelashes.
Overall, I think this product is okay. It gets the job done eventually, but I definitely won’t be repurchasing. I think I need to go back to my Clinique Take the Day Off Balm, which removes everything really efficiently and without any scrubbing.
