Review : Earth Science Chamomile Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover
An extra-gentle herbal formula made with Decyl Polyglucose, a corn derived cleanser, and Vitamin E for wrinkle prevention. Chamomile and green tea provide gentle anti-oxidant, anti-irritant protection. 100% fragrance free, non-irritating formulation which does not contain any artificial colors. pH 5.5
Supposingly free from harmful chemicals and gentle on the eyes, I didn't think too much of it, when I ordered it via iHerb, some time back. First time customers of iHerb will get US$5 off if you quote OKI787. Earth Science products are touted to be paraben free, no animal ingredients or testing and hypo-allergenic.
The colour of the bottle looks slightly different from the one I purchased though. Nonetheless, the packaging is a simple bottle with a flick top, where the clear gel-like contents oozes out easily, despite being sticky. I need to use my fingers to spread it on the cotton pad though, due to its glooey nature.
It has a slight whiff of green tea but barely detectable. I didn't find the performance impressive though. It has difficulty removing eyeliner marks as well as mascara. A Q-tip is handy to remove those eyeliner remnants while I needed several cotton pads to remove the mascara.
And it stings the eyes badly when the cotton pads are too wet and the contents gets into my eyes. Ouch! So please remember to close your eyes when using this. Even then, a little bit of it still gets into my eyes. Simply awful!
You can get it for $4.93 at Vitacost or $5.25 at iHerb. It scored 3.8 from 15 reviewers on Makeupalley.
