Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Review

Hello Gals,

How we all are doing today? So, Rimmel London has finally got launched in India and I was so happy to see a counter yesterday when I went for shopping. One product that caught my attention was Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Why you ask? Because it has oil-free formula!


Product Details:

Gently removes all eye make up, including long lasting and waterproof makeup. No oily residue. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Dermatologically and Ophthalmologically tested.


Rs. 375 for 125 ml.


It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip open cap and it has a small hole which dispenses the liquid.

For me, it was neutral smell nothing fussy.

My Experience with Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:

Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover comes in easy to use packaging and it is spill-proof as well, so a great option to carry while you are travelling. The liquid inside the bottle looks like water and it is not bi-phased. The consistency is runny, again just like water. If care is not taken, the liquid comes running out in excess. Also, since it is a water consistency liquid, a lot of product is required and it will get over faster.

The liquid does not sting the eyes. I have sensitive eyes which get watery very quickly; it didn’t happen with this makeup remover. The makeup remover isn’t 100% effective in the first swipe. It needs multiple swipes to remove all the traces of makeup and it requires more efforts with waterproof masacara. I suggest holding the cotton on the eyes steady for a few seconds before swiping it across the eyes. This will help in melting the makeup faster and thereby avoiding the need to swipe it multiple times.

In India, I have mostly seen bi-phased makeup removers at this price range. The oil-free ones are mostly very costly and high end. So, for the price it is definitely a winner for me.

Pros of Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:

  • Does not sting the eyes.
  • Oil –free.
  • Removes makeup effectively.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Price.

Cons of Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:

  • Not very effective for removing waterproof mascara.
  • Will get used up quickly.
  • Limited availability.

Would I Repurchase Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover?

Yes! Definitely!

I’ve been using Oriflame Beauty All-over Make-up Remover and I like it very much. I don’t think I need any other product.
