Makeup Review: Etude House Lip & Eye [Makeup] Remover

I finally have a decent makeup remover. (o*´∇`)o

The number one problem for me is that I always hunt for long-lasting products, resulting to difficulty in taking them off. Especially after wearing makeup for hours in conventions, my skin had difficulty breathing resulting to a pimple breakout the next day.
Before, I used wet wipes and water, but it didn't cut out for me anymore. So, I decided to give Etude House's Lip & Eye [Makeup] Remover a go.


It's worth Php198 ($4.59), and it contains 100mL of the product. I like the colors, it's a gradient blue that fades and becomes transparent. Then I learned that the two colors separate because the oil-based(?) part separates from the rest of it.

Written in the front and back of the bottle are product descriptions.
I had a hard time trying to get a clear photo of what it said, and I failed multiple times so I'm just gonna type them here for you.

(Front)
 Gentle, yet highly effective, this double formulated lip & eye remover easily and instantly dissolves all traces of make-up for a soothing and moisturizing effect on the sensitive eye and lip area without any irritation
(Back)
Directions for use: Shake well before each use. Apply to eye and lip area using soft cotton or tissue. 
I didn't include the ingredients, because they'll bore you to death. But I can see that it's oil-based, with lots of flowery ingredients to it.


The name IS kinda scary. I mean, what if this thing removes your eyes and lips totally? Eep. (″ロ゛)

Kidding aside, I tried it out on a few swatches first. I used Tony Moly cotton pads for this one.

This is the bad-ass life. Using Etude House products on Tony Moly tools.
Yes, I like to live dangerously.
I tried it out on eye products first, those of which I can call the 'strongest' ones in my set.



After one swipe, it pretty much erased MOST of it, even the gel eyeliner. It doesn't leave any residue, and after about a couple more swipes, my skin was spotless.

Now, for the lip makeup.



Lip makeup really is easier to wipe off, but I loved how it almost left no trace after one swipe.

My skin felt nice and warm after using the product, like it really has some kind of moisturizing effect. It didn't feel oily, and I could really feel my skin breathe in relief after removing all traces of makeup.

What I don't like is that it kinda gets my vision a little blurry after using it. My lips also react a bit differently, it gets kinda swollen but my lips are very sensitive because of past allergies.

So! Overall:
Effectivity: 5/5
Packaging: 4/5 - Fits well into my bag, but not my makeup kit.
Smell: 5/5 - It smells of mild flowers.
After-effects: 5/5
Price: 5/5 - Php198 ($4.59) for 100mL and awesome quality? Hell yes.

Repurchase? 
Yes, I probably will. I really like it and I hope that you guys would like this one too :D

That's all :) 
Sankyuu, bye bye~
