Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER – Review and Demo.
Maybelline recently revamped the packaging of their Makeup Remover which used to come in blue bottle. Now that the packaging changed to pink from blue which somewhat looks little fancy than earlier but it is nothing except but the marketing strategy. People always get attracted to something new that comes in market. After seeing so many reviews online I decided to give it a shot. When asked, the SA mentioned it is the same product in different and better packaging. God knows what is better about the packaging except it is little leaner and pinker. Anyways I was running out of my makeup remover and badly needed one. Best time I picked it up and as you can see I used it so much It’s almost over.

Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER is a regular makeup remover comes with very low price tag, pocket friendly and quite effective in removing waterproof makeups. I am very fussy about choosing makeup products, not all suits me and with makeup remover I had some good and some bad experiences. I hate that makeup remover that hurts and stings my eyes, I am sure everyone will agree with me. I judge any makeup removers with the power and effectiveness of removing waterproof mascaras. I am a huge fan of mascaras and use them a lot but the main concern about waterproof mascaras is they don’t want to wear off easily. Maybelline got a huge upgrade from their older version to the new CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER, however I am not quite sure if the product has been upgraded or not but I like the older one better in terms of effectiveness. Although this one is as gentle as the older version, but I don’t see any drastic noticeable change.
Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER is gentle and effective in removing all my face makeup in one go. But for eye makeup i.e. waterproof mascaras and long staying kohls I had to reapply twice on both eyes to remove all traces of products. It is a bi-phase product – a mixture of oil and water, you have to shake the bottle each time before dispensing the product out. I have a tendency of pouring extra product on cotton pad but the tiny little whole on the bottle gives control over pouring the product. You can actually feel the oil working on your face, it leaves slight greasy feeling on face but that’s not a problem for me because I always follow up with another cleanser. I love that it is fragrance free- gentle on eyes, don’t irritate my eyes or make my eyes fuzzy or cloudy.
What I like about Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER:
- Bi-Phase product- mixture of oil and water actually works on skin to break down makeups. Good for dry skin ladies.
- Gentle on eyes and skin. Doesn’t irritate or sting.
- Gentle on my eyelashes.
- Fragrance free.
- Doesn’t give me a blind spot.
- Doesn’t irritate my skin.
- Comes in new packaging (however it is nothing to do with actual product)
- Removes base makeup effectively in one go.
- Can remove water based makeup easily.
- Pocket friendly.
- It said to be -Safe for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes ( I don’t wear contact lens so can’t comment)
What I don’t like about Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER:
- Leaves a greasy feeling on face.
- Have to work a lot to remove waterproof and long lasting makeup.
- Takes a lot of time and patience for heavy duty waterproof mascara.
- Too much products need to use.
- Not suitable for those who apply a lot of makeup.
Maybelline is the most famous and lovable brand for their pocket friendly products. This makeup remover is best for those who don’t apply too much makeup. It is effective enough to remove last bit of light makeup but for long lasting products its takes lots of time. Re-application of such products on eyes can be little harmful for eyelids and eyelashes, therefore I just use it for my base makeup i.e. BB creams or studio fix powder. But for waterproof mascaras and other long wearing makeup I have something else which is another wonderful yet easy on pocket 🙂
