My Experience with Philosophy Just Release Me Makeup Remover:
Packaging: The makeup remover comes in a tiny long plastic bottle with a screw on cap. I like the fact that the opening is not too big that when I use it to saturate my cotton pad, I just hold it against the opening and turn the bottle upside down for a second to soak it. It does not soak the whole pad in one go, so I have to do it a couple of times in different areas to saturate the pad enough. This controlled amount of dispensing helps avoid wastage of the product as you are taking only as much as you need. You do need to shake the bottle well before every use as the liquid tends to separate into 2 layers just like oil and water would.
Performance: I do use a lot of long wear and waterproof makeup ranging from gel lines and waterproof mascaras which as you know can be a pain to remove. Till now whichever remover I have used to remove my waterproof mascara made me end up with a couple lesser lashes with every use, but I am happy to say that hasn’t happened from when I started using this remover.
This remover removes every bit of makeup from eye – whether long wearing or not, very effectively. The trick I use, is to keep the saturated pad on my eye for a few seconds before I wipe it off. This technique gives time for makeup to break down and helps remove all makeup with a single swipe. I also use this remover to sometime remove my long wear lipstick which tends to leave a stain behind on the lips.
I also use this remover soaked q tip to remove my waterline makeup and it does not irritate my eye at all. It also does not feel harsh or irritating on the skin around my eyes.
It does leave a slightly greasy slippery residue on the skin initially, but after giving it some time to air dry, it doesn’t feel greasy anymore, instead feels like hydrated and softer skin. I usually wash my face after removing all my makeup therefore the slightly greasy aftermath is not an issue for me.
Fragrance: It does have a very mild chemical-ish scent which dissipates quickly.
Overall, a highly effective yet gentle makeup remover which removes all traces of long-wear makeup in a single swipe. It does not irritate the eyes or the skin around the eyes; does leave behind a little bit of residue which can be washed off. I will recommend this product.
