Another holiday preparation for me! Make Up Eraser sounds magic. How is it possible to erase my entire make up including my waterproof make up with just water? I was a bit sceptical about it.
They claims that it contains no chemicals and survive 1000 washes. All you need is warm water. Oohh laa laa.. Thanks to my friend, she got me one on Sephora Sale few months ago.
The size is bigger than make up wipes, maybe 2x or 3x larger and of course thicker. It is 7inches wide x 16inches long. But it definitely saves you a lot of space in your luggage if you are travelling for long time. Let's say in my case I'm going for 40+ days. I love to wipe my make up in the middle of the day too. And mostly I need two sheets of make up wipes each time I use foundation. In total need 6-8 packs of wipes! And here I need only one piece. Don't we have a winner already?
Maybe you think that I could bring only 2-3 packs of wipes and repurchase in the middle of our trip. Maybe you are right. But in my case, I'm doing half-backpacking trip and I have tight schedule. I choose to spend extra time to sit and relax in the middle of townhall with sandwich on my hand than to walk through a drugstore looking for my favorite make up wipes. Going back to personal, that's not my option. Lol..
Another reason why I choose this cloth over make up wipes is about saving cost for buying wipes. This single cloth cost me just $20 (please convert if you are using other currency) in normal price (I'm saving 20% on sale) and it survives 1000 washes. I wash it after 3 times of uses, so it will last me 3000 uses. How much your make up wipes cost you? I'm sure with the cheapest wipes available on market, this cloth still cheaper than that.
I have other reason that might be not a concern for some people. This is an ecofriendly option compared to makeupremover+cottonpad or dispossable make up wipes. Might be more ecofriendly than some cleansing oil too, depends on the ingredients, because it claims containing no chemical.
The packaging is simple, just a transparent hard plastic for the box. There is instruction card inside every box. The cloth itself is wrapped in a sealed plastic packaging to keep it hygienic.
The cloth is okay for me and I don't have problem using it during these two weeks. It is not super soft so for you who have sensitive skin, I suggest to run a test first whether it hurts your skin or not.
Does it works?? Yes, it works fine for me. We are supposed to use warm water for maximum result, but I was running a test using room temperature water because I don't know if I could always find warm water during my trip. For your information, in this test I'm using long wearing products that needs thorough (double) cleansing. I will share the products later in my beauty packing list post. I also made a video that I will post in my instagram (@deavalence)
Most of my make up is being cleansed. My eyebrow gel, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and most of powder, foundation and cheek products have gone. But to show you how much make up left, I was using Bioderma Sensibio.
The result is not too bad considering the make up products I'm using and instead of warm water I'm using room temperature water. Last time (with almost same make up products with this one), I was using make up wipes, and I need triple cleanse before the make up gone completely.
Now we are at the end of the post and I should make judgement about the product.
Do I love it? Yes, I quite like it.
Is it useful for travelling? Yes, very useful.
Worth the price? Yes for me.
Do I mind not buying make up wipes and move to this product? I already moved 😉
Any complaint? That I have to wash after using it. I am a lazy girl 😂
Will I use it at home? Maybe. So far I'm loving cleansing oil more than this cloth. But who knows!
That's my honest opinion about this Original Make Up Eraser and I hope that this is helpful. Thank you for reading.
