Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover

Another product review?? Yes, time to keep them coming!

Sometimes after a long night out and you get home and your make-up is still all in place… you go.. “oh no”.. why?  because it’s gonna be a *beep* to get off!!  And all you want to do is just crash in bed!  Well, here’s where this product comes in handy.

Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover definitely takes off your eye make up (waterproof and smudgeproof and whatever-proof) in 2 sweeps (that’s 2 sweeps per eye).  And you don’t have to be very harsh during removal.  The product also does not sting my eye or affect my contact lenses.  Definitely one of the countless things I love about this product especially since the eye is such a delicate area and you need to be as gentle as possible.

The product splits in two separate solutions in the bottle and before use, you have to shake it until it mixes.  The top cover also comes secure where you do need to press down and twist to be able to open it.  In that way, you do know that there won’t be any “oopsie-daisy” moments if you shake the bottle too vigorously.  The product itself does not have a scent and it is not very oily.   I’m not too sure if it does or does not aggravate my acne as I only use it on my eyes and lips.  However, I can say that it did not irritate the eczema on my eye lid (everyone’s skin is different, so it may irritate another person’s skin).


Picture time?  Yes please!

Opening is not too big which is excellent for tipping just the right amount onto the cotton pad

Absolutely love this product especially when I’m wearing heavy eye makeup or a pigmented lipstick that stains my lips.  It removes the product easily without tugging the skin.
