Cleanser vs. Waterproof Eyeliner (part 1)

Posted on December 13, 2011


I decided to test 3 new cleansers I purchased this past month. Take a look at which one was able to remove Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil without the help of a separate eye makeup remover.

The 3 brands I tested are:
1. Bliss : clog dissolving cleansing milk
2. Ole Henriksen: apricot cleansing lotion
3. fresh: soy face cleanser

I drew a line with my Make Up For Ever Eyeliner and rubbed the 3 cleansers lightly onto my skin as I normally would on my face.

After: Looks like fresh’s soy face cleanser removed the eyeliner the best!

Here’s a more detailed review of the 3 cleansers.

1. bliss: clog dissolving cleansing milk ($28 for 6.7 oz:= 4.17 per oz) : Sephora | Ulta | Nordstrom | Bloomingdale’s

  • milky consistency
  • pleasant smell
  • leaves skin feeling clean but supple
  • apply to dry or wet face and rinse off with water
  • can be used as a gentle exfoliating mask
  • recommend for dry/sensitive skin :)

2. Ole Henriksen: apricot cleansing lotion ($30 for 14 oz= $2.14 per oz): |

  • lotion consistency
  • super subtle smell
  • apply to dry face and rinse off with water or wet sponge/wash cloth
  • didn’t feel squeaky clean after using this cleanser
  • recommend for very dry skin

3. fresh: soy face cleanser ($38 for 5.1 oz= $7.45 per oz): Sephora | Neiman Marcus |

  • watery gel consistency
  • not a fan of the smell
  • apply to wet/damp face and rinse off with water
  • cleans skin well but super gentle
  • recommend for dry/sensitive skin, but wish it was fragrance free or had a better smell :)

Hope this has been helpful in selecting a cleanser! Here’s Part II of this Waterproof Eyeliner vs. Cleanser Challenge!
