Review: Nivea Visage Extra Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover

I always start my face cleansing routine by removing my eye make up as they are usually the most coloured areas and I don't want to end up tugging at my face to remove the mascara smears! Knowing how delicate the eye area is, and how sensitive mine can be, I chose this Extra Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover by Nivea from their Visage range. I am very faithful to Nivea as it is the only brand whose cleansing products have never broke me out, are reasonably priced and do their job.

The bottle is quite simple... a light blue see-through plastic bottle with a white cap and the usual stuff like a product description and the Nivea Visage logo. The see-through bottle adds extra bonus points as I can see how much product is left; and so does the dispenser, being a small hole, I can easily control how much product to squeeze out.

This eye make-up remover is water based but it feels nice on the skin. Actually, it does feel a bit oily but just a little, nothing you can't put up with. As you may have noticed from the photo it is not a bi-phasic eye make-up remover. To be honest I am not really a fan of those kind of eye make-up removers as they are very much oily. This eye make-up remover smells much like any other cleansing product... soapy smell!

To use this eye make-up remover, I like to dilate my cotton discs in some warm water and then squeeze out some of the product, leave on my eyes for a couple of seconds and sweep out. The first time I tried this, I was really amazed at how much mascara it removed in one swoop! I think I just had to go over the same eye like once more so that's great as I don't have to tug at my eyes to remove mascara... just a couple of gentle swoops does the trick! Yet more brownie points are gained by this product as it also removes my waterproof mascara! I've also noticed that my eye lashes aren't falling out any more since I have been using this remover. I think that is due to the ProVitamin B12 in this product.

I wish this bottle came in a larger format though so I don't run out of it too quickly, then again, since it is reasonably priced, it doesn't matter that much! This eye make-up remover is also available in a waterproof remover version (I don't see the need for this since this does the job as well) and both come in 125ml format.
