I’ve had the Mineral Fusion‘s eye makeup remover for over 6 months now. I wanted to try something different from my usual DIY coconut oil makeup remover routine. What really drew me into purchasing Mineral Fusion‘s eye makeup remover was that it was a gel solution, in addition to being cruelty-free and vegan of course.
Gently and effectively removes eye makeup. Easy-to-use, gel solution utilizes mineral-rich clay to dissolve even water-resistant makeup and clean the eye area
A unique mineral blend strengthens and revitalizes skin while Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Calendula and Vitamin E nourish and leave the delicate eye area soft and soothed.
I bought the remover from my local London Drugs for $12 for a 3.4 oz/100 mL bottle.
The gel solution is indeed very soothing but some may find the gel too cold when applying on the eyes- it takes a bit of getting use to. After a few uses, I really enjoyed the cooling effect and it gets major thumbs up for not leaving an oily or greasy residue after.
What I like most about this eye makeup remover is how gentle the formula is and how it surprisingly did the job of removing my water-resistant mascara– sadly, it didn’t do the job of removing my eyelash glue. It did take a little bit of tugging at the eye to get all the stubborn mascara off, but it still worked!
The only thing that was disappointing where I had to knock off some points was the packaging! Since it is a gel solution, the squeeze bottle cap ended up getting pretty sticky and full of glob just after a couple uses. It is nearly impossible to clean it out because the opening is so extremely small and when using a towel or tissue to clean it, little bits of lint or tissue would get stuck to the gunk around the cap.
Because of the unique gel solution, I didn’t have high expectations but this came through as a gentle makeup remover option. This is in the mid-range price for a makeup remover; drugstore brands costs anywhere between $5-$10 and conventional brands and formulas usually go for $20.
All in all, I think Mineral Fusion’s eye makeup remover lives up to its claims to ‘gently and effectively removes eye makeup’. Worth the $12 if you’re looking for a more gentle and non-irritating option.
