How are you doing? Well, I am back with another product review. I really adore Nivea products especially their Daily Essentials range. From moisturisers, body lotions to BB Creams and toners, I find all the products completely apt for our regular routine. They are very user friendly, reasonably priced and have a good range for all skin tones and textures. Alright, let me first present the review of the recently purchased product now. Today, I will be reviewing Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover. Well, to begin with, I am a big fan of eye makeup. By and large, I fancy eye makeup a lot and I am a big fanatic for kohl, mascaras, and eye shadows and not to forget those amazing and colourful eye liners.
NIVEA Aqua Effect Double Effect Eye make-up Remover quickly dissolves even extreme waterproof mascara without any rubbing needed.
How to Use:
Shake well before usage. Apply to a cotton pad and gently cleanse the eye area from the inner to the outer side of the eyes. No rubbing needed. Also suitable for contact lenses wearers.
£3.49 (INR 330 approximately)
Writing about eye makeup makes me think about our regular 360 degrees makeup process. Everyone desires to have a fresh and healthy skin and generally, we focus a lot on applying makeup. But, seldom do we follow a proper after makeup routine which is as important as applying it. We tend to take a back seat when it comes to hydrating our skin after our day ends when it requires utmost attention. And, that’s where the issue arises where in our skin starts looking dull, worn out and tired. Apart from following a good diet and stress free attitude, taking care of our skin is equally important. As we wear makeup all through the day (most of the times), it is very essential to remove our makeup, cleanse and moisturise at the end of the day for our skin to calm, breathe and relax.
Honestly I was not much into after makeup routine, but after reading about its benefits, I have started venturing it. Anyway, the next thing I wanted to purchase was a good eye makeup remover. I went online to browsed few good make up removers and after checking a couple of products, I immediately decided on Nivea. And the very next day, I purchased Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover.
My Experience with Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover:
Well, Nivea offers two products in this range – extra gentle and double effect. Candidly, the mention of the double effect – two phase (oil and water) extra strength formula instantly enticed me to purchase this product. The oil phase effectively removes waterproof mascara and eye makeup and the aqueous phase is devised to protect and care eye lashes without leaving any oily residue. It’s fragrance free and at once, dissolves every trace of makeup while gently conditioning your lashes.
As I have an oily skin, I was a little apprehensive about the outcome as it comes in dual phase (oil and water). But, I have been using this product for the past two months and the results have been perfect. The best part is that it doesn’t require any extra rubbing around and over the eyes to efficiently remove the eye makeup. It easily removes my Rimmel ‘stubborn’ Smudge Proof Kohl in a jiffy. Just a tender stroke and the job is done without leaving eyes sore and stinging!
Though it comes in oil phase as well, surprisingly, it doesn’t leave any deposit! The product is formulated and tested for the sensitive eye area and is also suitable for contact lenses wearers. I am actually happy with the product, but a minor downside is when you shake the product to mix oil and solution together, it separates too quickly within a few seconds. For ‘touch ups’, it’s not preferred as it’s little oily and will smudge the rest of the makeup too. However, this product is definitely needed before you wash the face at the end of the day. Go for it!

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover?
