I’ve got another makeup remover for this review and this time, it’s in cleanser form. My mom actually picked this up for me when she was at the store and gave it to me. Apparently it’s just been released and it was on promotion so she just decided to get it. I was a little hesitant about this product, read on and you’ll know how it went down with this product. 😉
My Take On Nivea Extra White Make Up Clear 3 in 1 Mud:
This product actually comes out in a black-ish/green-ish seaweed like color and it smells like a L’oreal Paris Emulsion, which is actually pretty pleasant. Texture wise, it’s got a nice, smooth texture and it isn’t too runny nor too firm which makes application easy. It’s actually really to spread on the skin and you won’t find it hard to do so even if you don’t add water.This is actually meant as a makeup remover with a whitening effect. It actually has 3 methods that you can apply for the removal process. First, use it as a mud mask for 1 minute. Second, add a tad bit of water and apply to remove makeup. Third, you can use it as a facial cleanser for a whitening effect.
Straight out, I’ll tell you that I can’t say much about the third method as I’ve not use this as a facial cleanser. I’m too scared to stray from my current skincare routine and facial cleansers. However, I’ve tried and tested the first and second method.
For the first method, it’s using it as a mud mask. I actually just spread it all over my face with no water at all and left it on for 1 minute. After a minute, it didn’t dry fully but I just washed the mask off anyways and later on I continued on with the toner. To my surprise, there was barely any makeup left on my skin. Most of my makeup was removed. There wasn’t any whitening effect and it didn’t leave my skin feeling super soft or hydrated but my skin did feel clean and refreshed. But by using it as a mask, you can’t use it to remove your eye makeup. That actually will mean that you’ll need to get a different remover for your eye makeup.
As for the second method, I added a few drops of water and some product on my hand, then I massaged it on my face. I also massaged it around my eyes which was a horrible idea. Why? It stung and I was in pain. After I washed it off, I was left with red, vein-y eyes. But when I went back with a toner, most of my makeup was removed and my eye makeup was removed well too. Still no whitening effect or crazy hydration but just the refreshed, clean feeling.
With the two methods, there was also a slight cooling feeling when applied to the skin and it felt really lightweight on the skin, even when applied as a mask. It’s actually pretty easy to wash off when using the second method, but with the first method, it takes a little bit more effort to wash off.
While using this, I had no breakouts and it didn’t worsen any breakouts I already had. Also, there was no irritation nor did it harm my skin in any way possible. It was actually pretty gentle on the skin, apart from it stinging my eyes.
Packaging wise, it’s travel friendly. It isn’t too big or too small, it’ll fit well in your travel bag. Also, no need to worry about messes because the lid is actually really tight and secure so nothing will spill out. Plus I’d say that it’s pretty inexpensive for 100g of product.
