Review : Nature Republic Magic Remover Makeup Gel

Hey dears!

I like wearing makeup every time I go out of the house. I pretty much do a full makeup starting with a makeup base down to a makeup fixer! And I like wearing heavy coverage foundations and waterproof eye makeup because I have oily skin and acne problems, the weather is so hot in the Philippines, and I am lazy to do touch ups every now and then. Haha!

That's why it's important for me to have a good makeup remover so I can clean my face at the end of the day. I've tried many, some are good, some are not so good. But even though I've found some that I can work with, I still wanna try more! So for this post, I'll share this impulse purchase because it's something I've never tried before—a gel type makeup remover!

Nature Republic Magic Remover Makeup Gel
Bought this for Php 295.00 at their SM North The Block Branch.

I like that this product has English labels unlike most of the Korean brands here.

"This make up remover for sensitive skin gently cleanses makeup.

HOW TO USE: Dispense an appropriate amount of del onto a cotton ball, place it over the desired area for about 5 seconds and gently blot out the makeup.

CAUTION: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use if signs of irritation or rash appear. Keep out of reach of children. Replace cap after use."

This is how the product looks. It's gel!

It smells really pleasant. A mild floral scent. I like the gel consistency because it makes dispensing easier, you get to control better the amount of product you'll use and it does not easily get into your eyes. Some of the oil based removers I've used stings my eyes even if I'm just applying it on the skin area near it... I wasn't even trying to remove eyeliners or mascaras with them... maybe it's my oily skin? I dunno. I thought it was expired but it was far away from its expiration date. Oh well. So anyway, I haven't encountered any discomfort when I use the Nature Republic Magic Remover Makeup Gel so that's a big plus!

Anyway, let's see how it works!
I used eyeliners (most are waterproof) because these are the hardest to remove besides mascaras.

One swipe of the remover or cotton pad (take note that the center was the part with most of the product and I swiped with a heavy hand from top to bottom)

After a few more swipes

It's really good. It's easy to use, cleans really well, smells nice, and it does not easily get into the eyes even when I remove my eye makeup. I really think that this is a good product. I do recommend you to try it out. :D And remember, always wash your face after this so that your face is completely clean.

I'm now liking gel-based makeup removers so if you guys know some brands that has them, please do tell me so I can try them out. :D

    1. It is a nice find. Hopefully Nature Republic will open more branches. :D

  3. Such an interesting product! I have only one gel remover, its from biore and its excellent at removing gel eyeliner too! Do check it out! I'm just like you, I like med-heavy coverage and very waterproof eyeliner/mascara so nothing comes off in the hot humid weather!
