NIVEA Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover

I don’t know why I always feel compelled to blog about it when I buy a new make-up remover.

I think it’s because I didn’t use one for so long, and then when I tried Rimmel’s make-up remover and was surprised with how quickly it removed my waterproof mascara and eyeliner!

Then I tried Bourjois and was disappointed. So the quest was set to do my own investigating into finding the perfect make-up remover!

NIVEA Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover

I went for Nivea’s double effect eye make-up remover because it was both cheap and Nivea tends to have quite good skin care.

What it claims to do:

It claims to remove even waterproof mascara and leave the eye cleansed and free from oil. You don’t need to rub hard to remove make-up, therefore it won’t cause damage to your eyelashes.

NIVEA Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover

This stuff works, but it’s not quite as good as Rimmel’s.

It’s a shake to activate formula, where you have to shake it every time before you use it to mix the product together. I’m not really a fan off this because I find it a bit of a waste of time. I know you’re probably thinking COME ON CORINNE. It only takes 5 seconds to shake shake shake shake-a shake it, but, it’s hassle I can’t be having right before bedtime. #brat.

It’s cheap, it works, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

What’s your favourite make-up remover?



  1. I’ve used this before back when the had the old bottle and really loved it! Seriously need to get it again


  2. Love the packaging I usually use cloth to remove since I have the most sensitive eyes but if I didn’t I will had consider it . Have a great weekend.

  3. I’m using micellar water and eye makeup remover from Marcelle and they are brilliant!

  4. I personally like Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – it’s quite cheap, works well and removes my waterproof mascara 🙂
    Shame you wouldn’t buy the Nivea one again as their products are usually good quality!

  5. Great post as per usual Corinne! I haven’t used this makeup remover yet, I use Garnier’s make up remover as it seems to work the best for me! 🙂 x

  6. I’m quite tempted to get – I rarely wear eye make-up so something cheaper would work better for me.

  7. Right now I’m using the Clinique makeup remover.. it’s the best one I’ve used so far.. I’m looking for one that would completely remove the eye makeup though..

  8. Shame that it wasn’t that great. I find mascara almost impossible to remove in one go without panda eyes. I now use a facial oil which works a treat. Lucy x
