I've been unhappy with my makeup removing wipes lately. I felt they weren't "wet" enough and they took too much elbow grease to remove my makeup. I'd always been curious about cleansing waters but hadn't had a chance to try one. So when I heard that NARS had released a cleansing water, I jumped.
According to NARS, it's a soap-free, alcohol-free water that removes face makeup and tones the skin.
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Peg/Ppg-35/40 Dimethyl Ether, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Trisodium Edta, Cucumis Sativus [Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract], Chamomilla Recutita [Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract], Sodium Hyaluronate.I soak two cotton balls with it and place them over my eyes for about 20 seconds, then I gently wiggle them before wiping. And my eye makeup is gone, no joke. No mascara, no eyeliner, no eyeshadow, GONE! I then turn over both cotton balls and wipe the remainder of my face makeup off. Now I don't wear water-proof mascara, so I don't know how it fairs against it, but with regular mascara, it cuts right through it.
Afterward, my face is left feeling clean, yet hydrated. It's wonderful I tell you. The only caveat is the price, $28 for 6.7 oz. OUCH! Much more than my $6 makeup removing wipes. But it's NARS, you expect a price point like that from NARS.
If you can splurge, I recommend it! It's available at nars. com, NARS counters, and, Sephora.
