Review Overview

This is a standard, but very good, dual-phase makeup remover. The blend of solvent and silicones quickly removes all types of makeup, including waterproof mascara and lip stains. What makes this product a cut above many similar options is its lack of fragrance and any other ingredients problematic for use around the eyes. It is indeed extra gentle, and recommended for all skin types.

Claims

This extra gentle formula effecitvely removes long-wearing and waterproof eye and lip makeup. Contains lash conditioning ingredients.

Brand Overview

Bobbi Brown At-A-Glance

Strengths: A good cleanser and eye makeup removers; some impressive foundations, with options for all skin types and preferences; very good blushes and eyeshadows (powder and cream); several top-notch mascaras; mostly excellent brushes.

Weaknesses: Multiple moisturizers in jar packaging, otherwise great products hindered with irritating fragrant oils or fragrance components.

It all began with lipsticks. In 1991, New York based makeup artist Bobbi Brown debuted a collection of ten lipsticks at Bergdorf Goodman, expecting to sell about one hundred units in a month. She sold more than that the first day. From there, it's been mostly success after success, as Brown launched her classic foundation stick, wrote her first book, Bobbi Brown Beauty The Ultimate Beauty Resource, and enjoyed continued attention as an in-demand makeup artist and beauty educator.

Today, Bobbi Brown's makeup that continues to excel with superior foundations, true matte blushes and eyeshadows, and with all of the other basics that are essential to anyone’s makeup wardrobe. It isn't the least bit surprising that this makeup collection continues to do so well, because for many it's one-stop shopping that combines classic makeup application techniques with enough fun-yet-functional products to keep customer's interest piqued season to season.

Turning to the skincare collection, there are a few excellent formulas, but unfortunately, many are packaged in a jar, which means their beneficial ingredients are rendered useless due to air exposure (and bacterial contamination from spatulas or fingers). In addition, some suffer from the inclusion of potent fragrant essential oils. Those that should be avoided are noted in their respective reviews. That aside, color is without a doubt Bobbi Brown's strong point—but you will find a few sleeper hits among the selection of skincare products.

For me, the BEST!

I've tried Paula, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Neutrogena and Clinique removers, and keep returning to Bobbi Brown's. NO irritation, and it ensures my mineral sunscreen is completely OFF. I use the cotton pad/Q-tip technique, and wish someone would make a non-scratchy, non- linty line of these! I do wish Lauder would offer this formula in one of their "economy" lines, but in spite of that, I'm devoted to this remover!
