HG Product!

Nuance Salma Hayek Cucumber & Rosewater Dual Phase Makeup Remover
4.3 oz/$7.99 @ CVS

I've tried a few drugstore and high end makeup removers. My favorite by far was Clinique's Take the Day Off Makeup Remover (4.2 oz/$18) but it was so expensive for a product I burn through so quickly.

When Nuance debuted in CVS, I picked up this makeup remover and the exfoliating gel (only used it once so far). I was BLEW away. Several drops on one cotton round was able to melt away my waterproof mascara and eyeliner. I used a second round just to be sure and the swipe came off relatively clean. It performed exactly like Clinique's and Lancome's (which I also tried). Amazing.

And the best thing is that it's about 1/2 the price of Clinique's and 1/3 the price of Lancome's for the same amount of product.

It has a subtle rose and baby powder scent. Since it's dual phase, it does leave a greasy feeling but it wipes away easily. I will definitely repurchase and see no reason to go for the high end makeup remover anymore.


  1. Great review! Would love to try it.

  2. Awesome! I'm always looking for a great, inexpensive remover. I use Sonia Kashuk's dual-phase remover, seems similar to this one, but SK is $9.99 typically. For me, it is my HG but I'll have to pick this one up and compare now!
