“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Make-up Remover „
I need a gentle eye make up remover, partly due to sensitive eyes, but also because I wear only a little make up on a daily basis. I have my eye lashes tinted once a month, so usually apply a moisturiser, foundation (more so in the winter), a powdered colour an eye colour.
The Vie brand is excellent and always well worth it's money. Their products last well as you don't need to soak the cotton wool, just a small amount for each eye. It isn't harsh, but works well to remove the make up without having to scrub hard. On the occasions I wear a mascara, for going out etc., I need a good make up remover to take away all the mascara. I usually wear a waterproof one, so the Vie make up remover has to work hard!
I will buy this again and would recommend it to you.
I used to buy Virgin Vie for many years until I decovered Dior and another product that is not here to review or cannot find it to review, I am new member so will look it up sometime.
Virgin Vie is a good product range and I have tried this make up remover and it was fine, it comes in a very nice stylish bottle and it is nice on the face and it does not sting the eyes like some do, it is nice on sensitive skin like I have, it does not soak up the cotton bud used to take off the make up, although I have since started to use a muslin cloth, which takes the make up off better but the cotton buds or wool is just fine too, I still use them also because are good value price.
Virgin Vie do parties in peoples homes and have a representative who demonstates the products and chooses a member of your guests to have a make over, they are very good girlie parties and I myself have had quite a few over the years, the host then gets commission on what people have bought but it is a good way of trying a product first to see if you like it and also good for a girlie get together, although I am sure alot of men have done them too.
This bottle comes with a top that just pulls off and is easy to use and it is clear liquid. I am not sure but I think this remover is done in a skin type of dry, flaky, oil skin combinations but it is along time since I have bought this brand so am not too sure.
A good brand and very nice choice of cosmetics.
I regularly wear thick black eyeliner and lashings of black mascara, which can be difficult to remove easily. I have tried many other eye make-up removers, but "Everything Goes" is definitely one of my top-two make up removers.
The packaging is a slim clear plastic bottle with a matt silver lid, in keeping with the design of other Vie at Home packaging. The product itself is layered - one liquid is clear, and the liquid beneath blue. I think this looks quite stylish, and reminds me of a very similar make-up remover sold by Lancome (Bi-Facil).
Vie at Home claim that this "two phase lip and eye make up remover makes light work of even the most stay put make up like waterproof mascara or long lasting lipstick. Gentle and ultra effective, this best selling formula effortlessly removes the last traces of make up without any need to rub the delicate eye area". This is actually a pretty spot on claim. My experience is that it removes my heavy eye-make up, including waterproof make-up, very easily with just a small amount and minimal effort. I'd disagree that there is no need to rub the eye area if you wear a lot of eye make up - but only a gentle sweep would be needed.
After I've used this, in the morning I don't seem to have any residue make-up on my eyes - maybe a tiny bit in the inner corner of me eye, but there are no smudges on my pillow.
My eyes are quite sensitive but I've never had any irritation with this remover. The product claims to be suitable for sensitive skin and contact-lens wearers.
To use, the bottle needs to be shaken in order to mix up the two different layers of liquid. This will make the product look a little cloudy and oily. A small amount then needs to be put on a cotton wool pad, and applied to the eye area. Hold the cotton wool pad onto the eye for a few seconds which will help the make-up to break down and will be easier to sweep off. One tip is rather than sweep the pad from the inner corner of the eye outwards, to sweep from the outer corner of the eye inwards. I find this is more effective and seems to stretch the skin less. Use a different cotton pad for each eye - this will help to stop any infections you might have spreading from one eye to the other.
The feel of this product is light but slightly oily. This isn't a problem, but to lessen the oily feeling dampen the cotton wool pad first. I have dry skin, so I'm not sure if this would be more of an issue for those with oily skin. There is no noticable fragrance.
This remover is available from Vie at Home (formerly Virgin Cosmetics Company) and is priced at £8.00 for 125 ml as at 1 Jan 2010. It can be purchased via their website, via their catalogue, from a Vie at Home consultant and at home parties (like Ann Summers, Tupperware etc). It used to be available in a few of Vie's high street store, but I believe these stores have been phased out. The product can be found on Vie at Home's website under skin care, then treatments.
If purchased from the website, you will have to pay postage on top of the product price (as at 1 Jan 10 this is £3.95).
I've mentioned before that this is very similar to a Lancome product - Bi-Facil. Everything Goes is equally as effective as this Lancome product but much cheaper (Bi-Facil costs roughly £18). £8.00 is a little more expensive than some other make-up removers that are easily available on the high street, e.g Nivea, Simple etc. However I find this much more effective than any lower priced remover I've used.
I should point out that I have previously been a Virgin Vie Consultant for a couple of months a couple of years ago, but I now have no relationship with the company.
Overall this is an excellent make-up remover. It is slightly more pricier than some brands but it is certainly worth the money, especially considering it's quality is comparable with Lancome. The only let down is that it is only available from Vie at Home, so not a case of popping down to the high street to pick this up when it runs out.
I've never been one for eye make up remover, and always managed with cleanser, even if I had to scrub a little to remove the waterproof mascara
So, on hitting 30, and hearing about how crows feet occur, I decided i better get some make up remover in a bid to try and fight the battle of the dreaded wrinkles.
I have to say, I was a little dubious how this would work, but I wasnt to be dispointed in the slightest
A small amount on a cotton wool pad, pressed lightly against my closed eye for a few second before a slight sweep and bingo, the make up is removed. far quick, easier and more delicate on such a delicate area.
For my first ever eye make up remover, i certainly wont be purchasing any other, this is fantastic and removed every trace of my waterproof mascra in seconds.
so, no more scrubbing for me, in converted
I have been using this product (both old and new style bottles) for several years now and I have to say that it is one of the best I have ever used. In fact, the only time I will use anything else is when I have unexpectedly run out of this and I am waiting for my next delivery to arrive!
I normally wear both waterproof mascara and long lasting lipstick but I don't have either the time and energy to spend ages in the evening trying to remove the last traces of make-up.
Sometimes, when using other brands, I have thought that I have got rid of all of the mascara...only to wake up in the morning with the dreaded "panda eyes." However, this is not a problem I have with "Everything Goes" as it does exactly what it says on the tin!
It currently costs £8.00 for 125 ml from Virgin Vie and, although more expensive than some other brands, I think it is good value because:
a) you only use a few drops at a time
b) it is very effective so you don't need to reapply more than once.
c) it quickly and effectively removes both waterproof mascara and long-lasting lipstick.
When you first see this product, it looks a little odd because it is half clear and half blue but I think it makes an attractive addition to a bathroom shelf or dressing table.
Before using it, you need to give the bottle a good shake to mix the two components and, once you've done this, it can look very oily. Because of this, you only need to put a few drops onto a cotton wool ball or pad.
Simply apply the cotton wool pad to your eyes or lips and leave for a few seconds before gently wiping away. Unlike some make-up removers, there is no need to rub - which is a bonus since the skin around your eyes is particularly delicate.
There is no noticeable fragrance and it is suitable for contact lens wearers as well as those with sensitive skin.
