Review: Maybelline Flash Clean Makeup Removing Lotion

I rarely use drug store makeup but one day I dropped by Target/ one of the supermarkets in the States and I grabbed this because it was new and cheap. Why not give it a try? I didn't expect too much from it because it's a lotion formula so it occurred to me that it wouldn't remove my waterproof eye makeup for sure. To my surprise, it removed my super waterproof mascara in one go! I've been using Shu Uemura's cleansing oil to remove my eye makeup and usually it would take at least two times to completely remove the residue. However, this makeup removing LOTION, removed it in no time!! I was quite surprised that something this cheap actually worked better than my Shu cleansing oil... (Actually, the Shu cleansing oil isn't that great of a product itself, I'm still using it only because I have to finish the bottle). I think this thing cost me $4 something USD. I don't think I've seen this in Canada yet, I could be wrong... But if you see this at the drugstore, you must grab one and try!!

Now this product claims to remove makeup, cleanse and moisturize your face. I would definitely not complete my skincare routine with this as the last step. Even though it says that it completes the moisturizing step in this lotion, I just have a feeling that my face is still not clean yet. How I use this product is that I rub it on my eyes and face in circular motion, and then I take a piece of tissue and wipe off the makeup. Then, I use a cleanser to clean my face.

By the way, I am still using the Heorine Kiss Me Long & Curl mascara. It's been... at least six years. I don't think I will ever change!! I wore it to the water park and none of it came off :) Did I make a post about it yet? If not... it will come soon :)
