REVIEW: Benefit THEY ARE REAL Remover.

Hey Guys and Dolls,

Welcome back to my blog, This is a post about the Benefit They Are Real REMOVER. I featured this product on one of my youtube haul videos a while back and I promised you lovely people a review of the product.

As some of you already know, I have a Love/Hate relationship with the Benefits THE ARE REAL Mascara. The Mascara is a gorgeous product, It does everything it says it will do and it is smudge, tear and water proof (sounds great right?) BUT, It is a pain to get off. That problem brings me to the reason why I bought the remover, I decided to give the mascara another chance provided that the remover lives up to what it is supposed to do.

According to Benefits Cosmetics website, the Remover is “Specially formulated to remove our bestselling they’re real! mascara and they’re real! push-up liner, this creamy gel is gentle-yet-powerful. It completely lifts away waterproof eye makeup without tugging the delicate eye area. *Suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers” Sounds good right?

The product comes in a black tube like form and you are meant to apply the product using a cotton pad and gently wiping away eye makeup. You can also use it to correct make up mistakes like smudged eyeliner or eyeshadow. However, when it comes to actually removing the BENEFITS THEY ARE REAL MASCARA, I feel like the product seriously let me down in that area.

I found that I had to use several saturated cotton pads to remove the mascara, It did an amazing job of removing the rest of my eye makeup but when it came to the mascara, I ended up using quite a lot of product and was still left with some mascara residue on my poor battered lashes.

The product has a creamy, white gel like consistency and colour to it, it doesn’t have a nasty odour to it and it doesn’t sting if used sparingly but being that I had to use quite a lot of the product, my eyes ended up feeling bruised and burned.

I admit that my eyes can be a bit sensitive and teary but the product boasts of being suitable for sensitive eyes.

The product retails for 14.50pounds which I feel is not bang for your buck because it fails to deliver on removing the THEY ARE REAL MASCARA and it is not completely great for sensitive eyes plus you don’t get that much product for the value, (1.75 fl.oz, 50.0ml).

1: It is great for removing general eye makeup.
2: Sleek, travel friendly packaging.

1: Not enough product for the value.
2: Not too great for sensitive eyes.
3: Does not take off the THEY ARE REAL MASCARA.

I would really love to know what you guys think about this product, please leave me a comment if you have used, will use or love this product. Personally, I prefer using the MARY KAY eye makeup remover as that product effectively removes stubborn mascara (even the THEY ARE REAL MASCARA) and it is great for sensitive eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
