L'Oréal Gentle Lip and Eye Waterproof Makeup Remover Review
Review by Swarnali
Hi there, fellow makeup lovers!
Radha has been a friend to me ever since I started writing about makeup and I cannot tell you guys how much of a sweetheart she is! So it is absolutely a pleasure for me to get to review a product on her blog! I will be reviewing something that we all need when we say our goodbyes to the “look of the day”.

About the Product:
Best makeup remover
L'Oréal Gentle Lip and Eye Waterproof Makeup Remover Review

Price Rs 425/-
Quantity125 ml
Availability: Available at offline Beauty Stores and buy online also.

Product Description:
Gentle lip and eye makeup remover is a unique formula which instantly removes the most tenacious eye and lip makeup, even waterproof. So gentle, it is suitable for sensitive eyes.

Shake well and use on eyes and lips with a cotton pad. Follow with gentle cleansing milk.

My  experience  with  L'Oréal Gentle  Lip  and  Eye  Makeup Remover for Waterproof Makeup:
Makeup removers are an essential part of my vanity because I mostly use waterproof mascara and I do not solely rely on face washes to take my makeup off. My usual routine is to wipe the makeup off with the help of a makeup remover and then use a face wash. So let us see how it fared.

The product comes in a clear plastic bottle with a white screw cap. I would have liked it better if it opened and closed with a nice loud click or may be a pump dispenser. I have to shut the bottle every time I take some product out because I have this constant fear what if I drop the bottle, my entire product will go to waste. So yes it gets very tedious. I also feel if you are traveling and you did not close the bottle properly it will spill. Such problems are easily avoided when the packaging comes with a pump dispenser or a click open cap.
The product when shaken looks blue otherwise it is a layer of blue coloured liquid over a layer of clear liquid. The consistency of the product is runny and almost  water like. However it leaves  behind  an  oily  feeling because I think it is oil  based. I have to wash my face twice to get rid of the feeling. I am not complaining but some people might have a problem. When it comes to taking off the makeup it does a fabulous job. Be it layers of foundation, heavy eye makeup or a lipstick that leaves behind a stain, it gets  rid of  anything.

I have had bad experiences with makeup remover where you really have to get rough to take the makeup off and that causes irritation to the skin. Thankfully this one does its job in an almost perfect manner. It does not hurt  the eyes at all and takes off  the most  stubborn eye makeup in a jiffy. It is especially wonderful with waterproof mascaras and I use several coats of mascara. It never broke me out or irritated my skin.

Let me just show you how nicely it works.

Poof! It’s gone with just 2 swipes!

So you see it works pretty well. It is very similar to  the  Maybelline makeup remover. I think both have the same formula. The L'Oréal one just comes at a greater price with greater quantity. I hope my review helped you all!


  • Reasonably priced for the quantity
  • Gentle to the skin
  • Causes no irritation to the skin
  • Does not hurt your eyes
  • Takes off tenacious makeup easily
  • Has no obnoxious smell


  • Packaging could be improved
  • Leaves behind an oily feeling (which could be a problem to some)

Rating 4/5

Hope you liked my Review
