Today, is a quick review on the eye makeup remover that I have been using for the past year. Yes, past year! I've tried a few others in between, but always came back to this one so I could use it up. This eye makeup remover is from Provici and it contains Aloe. The bottle is quite large at 175mL.
Provici Cosmetics is a locally owned and operated beauty boutique and shop in the Exchange District in Winnipeg. If you look at my profile picture on the top right, my hair and makeup was done by Provici. It's $50 for hair and $50 for makeup. The best part? It's free. What? Well...you pay for your hair and makeup and then get to select $100 of product from their shop. So, either way you look at it...you're either getting free hair/makeup or free makeup. :) $100 for hair and makeup is also a steal! Tia and her team are super talented and very gracious!
The Eye Makeup Remover with Soothing Aloe lasted me a LONG time. You need very little for it to be effective. It works really great on both face makeup and stubborn mascara. I cake my mascara on. 2 types, 3 coats. This does a beautiful job of removing it. It doesn't contain any oil like say Lancome where you have to shake it up. It's just a nice refreshing water like liquid. It almost feels like a toner. It doesn't feel drying or tightening in the slightest.
The downside of this is what I suppose is meant to be the benefit. The Aloe. I found that if I didn't keep my eye closed tight enough and the remover got in my eye it would sting. I already have sensitive eyes, so I'm not sure if that contributes to a hightened sensitivity to aloe. It didn't happen every time I used it. Only, if I didn't keep my eyes shut tight.
The retail price of the eye makeup remover is $18. Great value for the price and really a great product. I may repurchase it once I go through my other products as it works great. I'll have to look and see if they have a product that doesn't contain Aloe. I give the product 3 1/2 stars out of 5.
If you are interested, here are the ingredients of the product. Provici is Cruelty Free and does not test it's products on animals. <3
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
