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!

About Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover

Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover is a popular product that claims to effectively remove even waterproof makeup without causing any irritation to the eyes. The product comes in a 125 ml bottle and is formulated with a two-phase solution that works by gently dissolving makeup and impurities, leaving your skin clean and refreshed.

One of the unique features of Nivea Double Effects Eye Makeup Remover is that it contains a blend of natural ingredients such as cornflower extract and aloe vera that help to soothe and nourish the delicate skin around your eyes. This makes it a great choice for those with sensitive skin.

In terms of performance, the majority of users find that Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover works well to remove even stubborn makeup without requiring too much effort and it doesn’t leave traces of oil behind.

  1. Dual-Phase Formula: The “double effect” aspect usually refers to the dual-phase formula of the makeup remover. This means the product consists of two separate phases – an oil-based phase and a water-based phase. These phases work together to effectively break down and remove various types of eye makeup, including waterproof mascara and long-lasting eyeliners.
  2. Gentle Yet Effective: The formula is often designed to be gentle on the sensitive skin around the eyes while still being powerful enough to remove even stubborn makeup without excessive rubbing or tugging.
  3. Bi-Phase Usage: To use the product, you typically need to shake the bottle well to mix the oil and water phases. Then, you can apply a small amount of the product onto a cotton pad and gently press it onto your closed eyelids. This allows the product to dissolve and lift away the makeup without causing irritation.
  4. Hydration: Some dual-phase makeup removers, like the Nivea Double Effect, may also contain ingredients that help to hydrate and nourish the delicate eye area while removing makeup. The oil phase can provide a touch of hydration, leaving the skin around the eyes feeling softer and smoother.
  5. Suitable for Sensitive Skin: Nivea products are often known for being suitable for sensitive skin types, and the Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover is likely formulated with this consideration in mind.

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.

My Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover Review

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 of 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 a 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. ME and Nivea products are not the best combination. However I might let my sister know about your review as she does not have so sensitive skin as I do. Find me

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

  5. 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!

  6. I have to say I can never find a mkeup remover that makes me feel totally pleased, that’s why I always buy different ones, at the moment I’m using a Garnier one!

  7. 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


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

  9. 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..

  10. 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
