Nivea Daily Essentials Eye Makeup Remover

I have always found removing my makeup a complete chore. You know when it gets to the end of the day, you climb in to bed and then you remember you still have your makeup on – worst thing ever. So I’m always on the lookout for something that speeds up the process and makes life easier.
I’ve been using Clarins Cleansing Duo to remove my makeup for years and until a few months ago used Estée Lauder’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. The Estèe Lauder remover does a great job, but it’s a high end product and for the price I felt like I wasn’t getting my moneys worth as I seemed to go through a bottle very quickly.I set out to find an inexpensive dupe and after trying a few drugstore products I have found my favourite – the Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover.


The Nivea remover has a two-phase formula – oil and aqueous – the oil removes the product and the aqueous helps to protect and care for the eyelashes.

I use a splash on a cotton pad, hold it on my eyelid for a few seconds and then the product slides away effortlessly without leaving an oily residue. It’s conquered everything from sparkle pigments to waterproof mascara, without any need for rubbing or tugging. It is the only drugstore remover I have tried that doesn’t sting or cause irritation around my eyes. The extra strength formula also means a little goes a long way – which is great.

If you’re on the lookout for a new eye makeup remover, I’d definitely pick this up.

Affordable and effective, what more could you want?

  • I use this one with my special effect makeup product, the only regular makeup remover I’ve found that removes it properly and easy, so I’m in love with this.

    • Ah that’s cool, what kind of special effects makeup do you do? I’m super interested in getting into it!

      • I’m sorry I forgot to reply *-* I do mostly damage/trauma/wounds, I do love character makeup, but they require a lot of time and money and since I am in full time school I don’t have the time to do that as much as I’ve wished 🙂
        My blog is about special effects, feel free to drop by for inspiration and I’m always open for questions in the comment section or by mail 🙂
