A Review of the Agave Spa Agave Facial Makeup Remover6:34 PM
I have mentioned this product quite a few times on Instagam, and I have mentioned in monthly favorites posts, But I have never done a full review talking about why I like this product so much.
By the way, I took the pictures as I was taking of my eye makeup. I thought that would make the post seem more real, I guess. Plus I generally don't like taking products out of my bathroom because they get water and sometimes oil on them. And I don't want that getting anywhere else. Which is why I used my phone and not my DSLR. I will NEVER take that anywhere where something could damage it.
"Okay, we're clear? All right. We're gonna move ahead. Sorry to keep you waiting." If you know what this is from (one of my all time favorite movies), you are awesome.
This product was sent to me by Agave Spa for free and I am an affiliate with them. If you want to save some money, you can use my code GABEAUTY at checkout. If you don't feel comfortable with that, that is absolutely okay. The fact that I am affiliate does not change my review at all.
This product is a bi-phase, gentle makeup remover. It kind of reminds me Lancome's Bi Facil Eye Maleup remover, but better. And less expensive. Unlike a lot of products out there, this one doesn't have an ingredient list that is a mile long, and there is nothing funky. This makeup remover consists of water, chamomile extract, hamemelis virginaina flower extract (witch hazel), agave tequilana leaf extract, grape seed oil, and sodium cocoamphoacetate, which is derived from coconut oil.
I don't have the most sensitive eyes out there, but it isn't uncommon for a product to make my eyes sting a little bit. This product doesn't cause any discomfort whatsoever. It doesn't sting at all, nor does it make my eyes water. I don't know if anyone else experiences this, but when I use an oil based makeup remover, I almost always get cloudy vision. And it sticks around for about 15 minutes. I still get some of the cloudiness with Agave Spa's makeup remover, but it isn't as bad and it only lasts for a couple of minutes. That I can deal with, and it only happens if I use too much.
I've thrown some tough makeup at this product, and it always takes it off without a problem. 99% of the time, I don't have to go back and remove any left over product. I can usually get everything off (eyeshadow, mascara and liner) with one pump per eye. If I am doing a heavier, more dramatic look, I'll use two pumps per eye. I've included a before and after so you can see what it can do. I also used it to take off my liquid lipstick. This was my first time doing that, and it actually did a really good job. You can also see where it took of some of my foundation and concealer. You can use this to remove your foundation and concealer. It works just as well, but I prefer to use something else. Reason being is that I would go through a bottle every month.
|One pump for each eye and one for the lips.|
|Eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick, and some foundation/concealer are now gone.|
I love the packaging. More brands need to include a pump with this kind of product. It makes it much easier to use and the product doesn't get all over the place. The packaging itself is clear plastic with blue writing. Nothing too fancy, but I do think it is pretty.
The Agave Spa Agave Facial Makeup Remover is a bit pricey at $18 for 2.8 oz, but it will last awhile since you don't need to use much. Plus it works better than almost every other makeup remover I have tried.
