==Nivea Visage Daily Essential Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover==
A little while ago when I decided to invest in a much better black eye liner which was supposedly smudge proof, water proof and generally sold as being unmoveable, I decided that my normal cleanser and eye make-up remover probably wouldn't touch the stuff so decided I needed a waterproof eye make up remover to go along with this purchase and this Nivea one was the one I decided on.
==Price and Availability==
I purchased my bottle of this product from Amazon which is where I was buying my eye-liner from as I thought I would save a trip out (and my credit card is linked far too easily to Amazon for my liking!!). The bottle, which contains 125 ml, cost £3.79 pence. This isn't a particularly expensive price for the amount of product you are getting and especially when it is from a company I have great faith in as I have more or less grown up using Nivea products and rate them highly. I have not really seen this product for sale in anywhere else but to be frank I can't say I was looking before I ordered it from Amazon. It does appear to be on a few different online sites but this price is more or less a standard.
==Look and Design==
Because the product is aimed at being a "gentle" eye make-up remover the packaging seems to show this somewhat as the colour of the plastic bottle is all white with just a splash of the Nivea classic blue colours on the front and back labels. The bottle is a good shape and the flip lid covers the hole where the product is dispensed from and this all works well and to be honest is nothing overly special or luxurious. It does the job of giving all the necessary information on the packaging and making it easy to get the product out of.
The creamy make up remover inside the bottle is a pure white in colour and it is not overly thick as the consistency can be quite runny. There is only a slight hint of a fragrance to this product and that is really just a clean type aroma which you would expect but there is no added fragrance and nothing that would of course irritate the eyes.
I use this product on a soft cotton wool pad and you really only need a small pea sized amount of the Nivea to give great results. The make up remover always feels cooling and soothing on the pad when I fist begin to use it. The pea sized amount of product is the perfect amount to do one of my eyes and removes all of the waterproof mascara I have on that eye and this no smudge no move eye liner as well. I can get away with using the backside of the cotton wool pad and a further pea sized amount to remove the make up from the second eye.
The whole process is very easy and no excessive rubbing is needed for the mascara and eye liner to be removed from the eye which is always a good thing around this delicate area of skin. The fact that this product is enriched with chamomile extract and pro vitamin B5 means that as well as being soothing and gentle to the eye area it is also giving the eyelashes some protection that you wouldn't get with the cheaper brands.
Although I don't use lip stain or really any type of lipstick, this product is also suitable for use at removing the tough stains that you can get for your lips but I can't coment on how well this works for this area.
==My Overall Opinion==
Being a contact lens wearer as well as using heavy waterproof eye make up I can say that this Nivea Gentle product worked far better than I expected it to. It was light on my skin as the runny product cleaned the make up off whilst not leaving any residue on my eye lashes or skin like other eye make up removers I have used. Using a small amount was all the was needed to get rid of all trace of the days products from my eyes and it was quick and simple to use.
The price is more than affordable and the whole bottle of product is lasting such a good time because of the fact that a little bit does go a long way. Because of all these reason I really cannot find any fault with this product and for that reason nothing but a top score of 5 out of 5 will do. Highly recommended!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
