Pixi Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover

Written by: Swati on:

There was a time during my university days when my preferred method of removing makeup - I mainly wore eye & lip products only - was a bi-phase makeup remover. They were quick, convenient & suited my needs. Over the years I have used a good number of them but with time I started to wear some base makeup & so I gravitated more towards cleansing oils - I didn't have the patience to use separate removers for the eye and face.

The Pixi Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover wasn't in the market back then, because if it had been, I would have loved getting my hands on it. A bi-phase remover that can be used on the Eyes, Lips and wait for it... the Face too! Yes, you read it right. Anyway, I am glad I tried it now because I quite like this one. Read on.

The chunky but quite cute looking bottle has a push dispense cap. I had never used this mechanism before and hence had never realised how convenient it is - you simply put a cotton pad on top, press down a few times and it gets saturated with the product. Soooo easy!

The formula is fragrance-free, alcohol-free & essential oil-free which is a big plus. I find the remover gentle yet effective and it does not sting or irritate my eyes. It leaves an oily residue behind and you need to go in with a regular cleanser afterwards - which is alright as a double cleanse is essential if you are wearing makeup anyway. Let me also add that the formula isn't harsh or drying on the skin.

You simply shake the bottle to mix the 2 phases (oil & water) - it turns into a milky white liquid, put a cotton pad soaked in the remover on the area, let it sit for a bit, wiggle the cotton a bit so that it gets between the lashes properly and wipe away gently. I usually wear light makeup and this managed to take off everything easily - light to medium coverage concealer & foundation, eyeshadow (including glitter), mascara, lipstick (regular & those long staying liquid formulas).

The Pixi Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover is a good one if :
  • you like using bi-phase removers 
  • and if you want one that can be used on the face too
  • if you wear light-medium makeup
  • if you are travelling and you do not want to carry multiple/separate cleansers (one for your base, one for your eyes).
What I liked the best? The fact that this can be used on the face too. I haven't come across many (actually when I think about it, I haven't come across of any) bi-phase makeup removers that can be used to remove base makeup. 

I had actually stopped using makeup removers because I had moved onto oils & I also do not want to use cotton rounds/pads anymore (not the most sustainable & I am finishing up my last batch which I bought over a year ago) but I really like this makeup remover & want to keep using it - I just need to get hold of some reusable cotton rounds now. If you have any recommendations for those, let me know :)
