Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean was the makeup remover on my to-buy list always, thanks to my heavy liner and mascara. I was about to pick up the L’oreal remover when I spotted this.
To start off with the packaging very smart plastic bottle packaging, with a transparent body with a purple tint. I first thought the liquid was tinted but no. The cap is solid white and is travel-friendly.
The product inside is bi-phased and you need to shake well to mix them up. The thing I noticed in this is the two portions separate very soon, so if you want the best of both you have to pour out the liquid on the cotton pad as soon as you shake. The piercing on the cap is just right dispensing a small amount of liquid at a time. You can control the quantity of the product.
Performance wise it is beyond expectation. Honestly, I did not expect this to be so effective, not only in removing the makeup but doing it in a jiffy. The addition of the word “express” is totally justified.
I have removed stubborn waterproof makeup with this and it did not irritate the eyes a bit. Also, there is no cloudiness in the eyes which is common with oil cleansing. The area around the eyes or the whole face might seem to be a bit oily just when applied but the feeling goes away in few minutes. You can skip washing your face after cleaning with this. Could not ask for more at this price point.
•Effective • No stinging

• Easily available

• Unable to remove shimmers.

I bought this product with high hopes as it has been a favourite amongst a lot of my friends and they all absolutely love it. However, this product did not suit my skin, to say the least. I used it once at night and even though it removed the make up really well and performed nicely and seemed promising, I woke up in the morning with a lot of bumps on my cheeks and forehead as well as chin. The breakout has been affecting my skin ever since and I am regretting the decision.
NOT IMPLYING that it isn't a good product!
However, if you have oily or combination type, I would suggest you to go for other oil-free formulas in the market

With the use of long lasting kajals and lip shades and dozens of products on us, I guess we are in need of this product which actually helps you out in taking all these stuff out from your face with ease.
It comes in an oily base and is really easy on your skin , it doesn't irritates eyes while removing kajal or the lashes off.
A nice steal by spending 300 RS for this.

This one has become my favourite right now. Before I used to use Johnson Baby Oil to remove make up by taking it on a cotton wool and then wash my face with my favourite face wash.
The packaging of the makeup remover is very easy to use. It has a plastic stopper that is leake proof. However it fails to controls the amount of remover dispensed out of it. Hence the percentage of wasteage is more than normal.
Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover is a bi phased remover, a layer of oil can be seen floating over the non oily liquid.
You need to shake well before use. Take an appropriate size of cotton wool and pour out the remover over it. Be careful while doing this. As everytime I use it pours over in excess. Which is a drawback I found.
While removing eye makeup, make sure to keep your closed eyelids for few seconds before swiping. This way, it removes all stubborn eye makeup including waterproof makeup. Only thing the Kajal on the inner side of my eye lids I could not remove.
It removes waterproof or glittery lip and face makeup easily without leaving a stain behind. I use it to remove makeup.
Since it contains oil, it does leave a greasy residue behind, always follow up with a good face wash of your choice.
Enjoy makeup divas.

This remover is oil based and hence will remove the any layers of makeup with one wipe (true to it's name - express clean).
doesn't burn your eyes while removing makeup around the eye on the lids.
Good product and moisturizes the skin although people with oily skin will have a lot of oil residue after using the product.
It costs rs. 300 for a 70ml bottle.

I can't emphasize on the awesomeness of this makeup remover. It is a bi-phase makeup remover which needs to be shaken so that the oil and the solution mixes well. This way it won't feel greasy bt will effectively remove water proof makeup as well. It has not irritated my skin. It is super gentle on eyes and doesn't sting them. I use this almost every single day to remove makeup and it has not broken me out. I do double cleansing hence I always wash my face with a cleanser post makeup removal so that there is no trace left. It is totally worth every single penny. The only con is it comes in such a tiny bottle which gets finished soon. A bigger bottle would have been much better but nonetheless, this is an ideal makeup remover!
I have been using this for about a year now. It definitely removes the eye and lip makeup efficiently. It does what it claims. Be it your waterproof mascara or an eyeliner or even eyeshadows, just hold it on your eyes for 10 seconds to let it break down your products and then just wipe it off. It has an oily consistency but not something that will itch you until or unless you wipe it off or wash your face. It doesn't bother me for my skin type. Oily skin girls might have a little problem with the oiliness otherwise, worth the money.

Maybelline has come out as a brand which delivers promising products at affordable price range !
This remover is one of the examples of such Maybelline products.
It's affordable, removes make up eadily, leaves no residue or stickiness and is also travel friendly!
Of course it's not as amazing as the latest micellear waters but at 250rs it's the best thing you can ask for !

This makeup remover contains 2 products, one is an oil based product which stays on top and another one is a liquid. The remover needs to be shaken before application. Just a little amount on cotton is enough to remove makeup. It easily removes liquid lipstick which is a real task without creating too much mess and also removes any other waterproof makeup. It doesn't irritate or dry out the skin. The packaging is quite sturdy and is safe to carry as well. This is perfect when you don't have time for a CTM routine and just want a quick fix to remove your makeup.
Base: Oil, Water, Cleansing Milk, etc
Is it harsh or gentle on the eyes?
Does it remove waterproof makeup as well?
