Can You Really Remove Makeup With Just Water? || The Original Makeup Eraser

The Makeup Eraser
Im big into skincare, getting to try new products just makes me happy and even though its a chore I do love taking my makeup off in the evening and doing my full skincare routine. Last month I got given The Original Makeup Eraser as a gift from work and I was quite excited to give it a try. I hadn't heard much about this to be honest. I did know it was one of those things that claimed it would remove even waterproof makeup with just water but review wise I hadn't seen any. I must say though I really like the packaging, it's a giant eraser and honestly the packaging alone would probably make me buy this myself because of how novelty it is. 

The Makeup Eraser
The product itself is a large pink cloth and it is honestly the softest thing I've ever placed on my face. It feels like a baby blanket and it's just so soft. Not to mention it's bright pink and who doesn't love that?! I will admit I didn't use this straight away because even though I was excited I was also iffy, I have quite sensitive skin so if I use the wrong thing against it, it just hurts and goes as red as a tomato. However I got up the courage and decided to take my makeup off after work using this. 

To use it you simply add water and then rub in circular motions around your face to remove makeup.
So does it work...?

Well yes and no, it's not life saving and to remove your whole face of makeup I'd imagine its going to take some time. It kind of only half removes your makeup, I don't know maybe the foundation I use is too thick but it breaks through half of it and leaves like another layer behind. I've tried this several times and honestly I'd much rather just do my actual skincare routine to remove my makeup than use this. It could be handy if you wear very minimal makeup but for me it just doesn't work. 

This retails for €23.00 and to be honest I'd rather spend the money on face wipes and I'm not a fan of wipes but I just feel like if you're looking for something to remove your makeup fast they're the way to go. 

After I would use this only using water felt weird so I would still go in with micellar water after it to just make my face feel clean, and then I would continue with my skincare routine. So I wasn't a fan of this which is sad because it would have been life changing if it had of worked out.

Have you tried The Makeup Eraser, what did you think?

  2. I'm so glad you reviewed this in an honest way. Water doesn't do anything to get make up off personally!xo

  3. I think this is literally the most pointless thing ever! I watched some Youtube reviews of it and the girls using it were really scrubbing at their skin to remove foundation and mascara, it was making me cringe! I just don't think there's any place for it in the market. I mean, who wants to scrub away at their skin like that! I'm with you, I'd rather use Micellar water or even wipes compared to the ME x

  5. Definitely not one I would be buying! Micellar water works so well and doesn't leave you scrubbing away at your skin! Worth a try but why anyone would invest in this is beyond me! Good things yours was a gift, eh.

  6. I'd seen this on a few websites and honestly had no idea what it was or how it worked - sounds really interesting though, shame it doesn't work amazingly though because if it did I'd be on that!

    1. I honestly would recommend wipes before this to be honest which is sad because it would have been amazing if it worked. x

  8. Ahh it's a shame that this isn't as good as it's made out to be! I'm always on the look out for new ways to remove my makeup, as I find makeup wipes can just be too harsh on my skin sometimes. x

    1. I swear by Micellar Waters, so gentle on the skin! I can't use anything to harsh because it just hurts and leaves my skin feeling horrible x

  9. Oh no, shame it didn't work out that well! I've been seeing this here and there and thought it's quite an interesting concept, but if it doesn't work then I'm going to spend my money on something else ;) xx
