Today I have another review from the Reviva Labs brand. You all know how hesitant I am when it comes to new makeup removers. I have very sensitive skin around my eye area that is easily irritated and becomes itchy (and sometimes inflamed! Gross!) whenever I switch removers. Luckily, the Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel surprised me.
This product has more of a serum feel than a gel, which is a good thing because I associate “gel” with being sticky. It glides over your skin and really melts your makeup away effortlessly. I apply it to a cotton round, then wipe away my eye makeup in a few swipes. Even my multiple coats of mascara are no match for this makeup remover.
The Eye Makeup Remover Gel has sort of a milky scent to it, but nothing too strong. It’s all natural and vegan! The allantoin in the gel really soothes and moisturizes the eye area and leaves it feeling silky soft.
I was really glad that I had no reaction or irritation from this product, which is rare for me. Unfortunately on a few occasions I got the gel in my eye while trying to take off my makeup and it stung pretty badly, so I suppose their claim of a “tearless formula” doesn’t apply to everyone. It definitely took less time to get every bit of my eye makeup off with this gel as opposed to rubbing with my makeup wipes. For $5, you get 2 fl oz which is actually a little more expensive per ounce than, say, Neutrogena’s Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover which comes with 5.5 fl oz. However, if you have very sensitive skin like I do, or are looking for a cruelty free/all natural alternative to many drugstore removers, this is a winner.
Do you experience reactions to certain makeup removers like I do? Before this product, I couldn’t buy anything but my Neutrogena wipes without risking serious irritation. Let me know in the comments!
