I am more of a kajal and lip gloss (read colored lip balm =D ) kind of girl and so at the end of the day I don’t have much layers of makeup to remove but only some eyeliner and kajal. I wanted to experiment with mascara and so I wanted a good makeup remover to remove traces of makeup from my eye.
I was on a lookout and I stumbled on Natio eye makeup remover and thought why not give it a try. Plus it says aromatherapy and I like things with good aroma 😀
Price: Rs 655 for 75 ml
What it claims:
A gentle, non-oily lotion with floral extracts of rose and cornflower to thoroughly remove eye make-up, while refreshing and softening the eye contour area. pH balanced to prevent irritation.
Natio Eye Make-up Remover Review
It comes in a white opaque packaging which faintly shows the amount of product left in the bottle. It has a nozzle at the top which is protected by a tight cap. I like the sturdy packaging. The cap fits tightly over the nozzle so one can travel with this without worrying about spillage, as long as you screw the cap tight. The makeup is liquid in consistency (no traces of oil, I checked). Being non oily, it does not leave the skin oily after makeup removal but it does feel tad sticky. The remover is quite good at its job. It removes waterproof eyeliner and kajal like a breeze. However, it doesnot remove mascara that efficiently and I always end up breaking my eyelashes. Ouch! Also, this remover stings!! Eye makeup remover should be gentle to the eyes in case some of it gets inside the eye during removal. But this one stings if it gets in eye especially if you are going to remove waterline makeup and in-between the lashes traces. It is pricey for the quantity (75 ml).
I tested it on other makeup as well, lip makeup and face makeup. But it does not remove it that effectively. And I don’t complain either, since it is Eye make-up remover.
‘Aromatherapy’ word in its name is misleading – It has a very faint smell and not “aroma”. It smells very faintly of botanical extracts. I was not happy at its fragrance as I was expecting a good aroma experience.
Overall, this is a good remover as long as it doesnot get inside your eyes. Since I had bought it, I use it for removing eyeliner and occasional eye shadow removal. It is quite good as long you use it on your eyelid area. Also, it does not leave any oily traces. It is bit costly for the quantity it offers and I wont repurchase it mainly because it stings!
