I find waterproof mascara to be bittersweet. The sweet: the drama! Big, thick lashes that stay big and thick no matter how much other drama happens – sweat, tears, rain, all no problem. The bitter: trying to get it off my lashes without ripping them right off my eyelids. I end up avoiding my waterproof mascaras because the bitter is so much trouble. A great eye makeup remover that specifically tackles super tough makeup is the answer to turning the bittersweet into all sweet.sample, affiliate links
Avene Intense Eye Makeup Remover ($20) is an eye makeup remover specially made to tackle the most highly resistant eye makeup. Not only does it remove eye makeup, it also treats eyelashes. One issue I have always had with waterproof mascara and its removal is lash loss. You know, trying to get that stuff off typically means losing about a third of my lashes, I swear. Avene says that using the Intense Eye Makeup Remover actually reduces lash loss by 75%.
I find that Avene Intense Eye Makeup Remover is very hydrating and it does condition lashes. The bottle needs to be shaken well first to combine the spring water and the makeup remover. I soak a cotton pad with the makeup remover then press it over my eye, letting it soak in for about 30 seconds. Then, my eye makeup wipes right off with no tugging, no pulling, no drama! It’s really great. Even my most difficult and tenacious waterproof mascara comes right off with ease – without any accompanying lash loss. Pretty sweet. – Lisa
