Today I’m reviewing Revlon Eye & Lip Makeup Remover which is a cream based makeup remover.
Price : Rs 165
Quantity : 60 ml
What Revlon says about the Eye & Lip Makeup remover :
Easily removes longwearing and transfer-resistant makeup.
- This creamy makeup remover lifts away all kinds of makeup, including longwearing and transfer resistant makeup.
- Leaves skin comfortably soft and free of residue
- Ophthalmologist tested
- Won’t cause breakouts
To use : Squeeze a small amount into palm of hand and spread over entire face (including eyes and lips) using small circular motions. Use tissue or rinse off with water.
I could not find the product on the Revlon International website. The packaging mentions Manufactured in Uttarakhand so it could be an India exclusive product.
My take on the product
I bought this remover almost a year back since I desperately needed a makeup remover to remove the waterproof Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara which I was using back then. I used it for a while but everytime I used it my eyes used to sting badly even if a tiny amount of product went into my eyes. I stopped using it for a while. I switched to using Cetaphil for removing eye makeup too and this product remained lying at the back of my cupboard. Recently when my trusted Cetaphil got over, I switched back to this one in the emergency situation. For the first time, I read the product description and discovered that it can be used all over the face. I tried it all over my face and was quite surprized to see how soft and supple it made my skin! It did not sting my eyes too this so I guess the culprit was the Maybelline mascara and not the remover which had stung my eyes earlier.
The product comes in a simple black and white tube packaging with a flip cap. The packaging is quite easy to use though sometimes one may end up squeezing out too much product. Over time, the product can accumulate near the opening of the tube and can get a little messy. Apart this from this, I like the fact that the packaging is sturdy and does not open while traveling. The mouth of the tube can get quite messy over time (see image).
The remover itself is a white creamy formula that is neither too runny not too thick in texture. It removes waterproof makeup fairly easily and I generally use this when Cetaphil is unable to remove very stubborn makeup. More often then not, it tends to get into my eyes but the good part is that it accumulates in the corners of the eyes the moment I splash on some water and then I can just remove with my finger gently. It does not sting though it does make the eyes a little milky and blurred but just for a few seconds. For quite some time, I have used coconut/olive oil for removing eye makeup but I hate it when it gets into the eyes and blurs the vision.
Using Revlon eye makeup remover on long stay lipstick, waterproof eye liner and waterproof mascara :
I have used it a few times on the face too and it removes all traces of foundation and leaves the skin quite soft and smooth. But it does leave a film of a softening creamy substance behind, it might work for dry skin types but being oily and acne prone, I generally follow up with a face wash so that my pores are not clogged. It hasn’t broken me out of irritated my skin. The product has a mild ‘cosmetic’ fragrance which is not unpleasant.
The tube contains 60 ml of product so it’ll last quite a while. At the price, I think this is a fabulous product and can be pretty great remover for skin makeup too for dry/normal skin types.
The GOOD about Revlon Eye & Lip Makeup Remover :
- Easy to use, hygienic tube packaging
- Creamy texture, spreads easily
- Removes makeup efficiently
- Does not sting the eyes
- Easy to remove if it enters the eyes
- Makes the skin soft and smooth
- Did not irritate or break out my oily/acne prone skin
- Well priced
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Revlon Eye & Lip Makeup Remover :
- Product accumulation near the mouth the tube makes it a messy
- Product wastage – extra product squeezed out
- Blurs the vision for a few seconds when it enters the eyes
- Contains Mineral oil and parabens – may not be suitable for sensitive skin types
Revlon Eye & Lip Makeup Remover is a cream based makeup remover that removes waterproof and transfer resistant makeup quite efficiently. It comes in a convenient tube packaging the product can be used on the eyes, lips as well as the face. It does not sting the eyes and can be removed easily if it enters the eyes by rinsing with water. It makes the skin soft and smooth when used to remove foundation even though it does leave a film behind. It did not break out my acne prone skin and the softening effect is something everyone would like in the winters! It’s a great product and one gets a lot of quantity for the price. Definitely worth a try!

Have you tried Revlon eye and lip makeup remover ?
p.s – Only after uploading this post I realized that I’d forgotten to take a picture of the swatch. Since I’m on vacation and don’t have the product with me right now, I’ll add a swatch picture once I’m back. Till then you can image it to be a white creamy product 🙂
