Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover: Review

It is well understood that we all love buying makeup..and more makeup. And I am sure you know that it is equally important to invest in good makeup remover.
Of course, lots of us are partial to baby oil/coconut oil/olive oil...but there are those days...lazy ones or tiring ones or days when you need stuff gone quickly and this is when a makeup remover comes in super handy.

It has been quite a long long time that I have been a fan of the old Maybelline makeup remover (so much so that I haven't felt the need to try any other brand yet!). A while back I saw this new Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover and I had to pick it up.

The remover comes in a transparent sleek plastic bottle with a white twist cap. It closes tightly and I haven't faced any leaks yet. Cute, fuss free and travel friendly packaging.

It is a biphasic remover i.e. there is an oil based component as well as a water based one. You have to shake the bottle to mix the contents (it turns milky and I see glittery particles in it...am I the only one seeing them?!)
The remover itself is very runny, water like and a little will go a long way.

I generally take a bit of the remover on a cotton pad and let my eye makeup soak for about 5-10 seconds (it helps in loosening the waterproof mascara especially). It removes most of the makeup (shadow, kajal, liner, mascara, lipstick, lipstains) in about 3 swipes (sometimes a 4th especially of you are wearing waterproof makeup). 
I did expect it to leave oily residue behind, but it doesn't really...only a teeny tiny bit if I have to be too picky.
I did not face any irritation/burning/blurry vision with this one (I do not have very sensitive eyes.)

All in all, it is a good eye and lip makeup remover. It does what it says without any issues. It is easily available and the bottle sure does look cute. Compared to the older version this one is a lot less oily.
Even so, I would prefer buying the older one (if it is still available) because it did a good job too and was cheaper than this. That being said, it works fine and you could go try it out if you want to :)

Price : 275 INR for 70 ml
