Key Ingredients: Cucumber, rosewater, chamomile & lavender extracts nurture and soothe the delicate eye area. Mimosa, blue agave, camapu & prickly pear extracts soothe, hydrate and firm skin. Glycerin, a lightweight moisturizer, softens and hydrates skin and lips.
This makeup remover is formulated to softens and condition the skin while lifting away impurities, and it even tackles waterproof makeup. My eyes have become pretty sensitive so if an eye makeup remover causes even the slightest burning or stinging I won't use it, period. I decided to wear a few of my hardest to remove waterproof formulas- MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creams & Aqua Eyes to really put this product to the test. These formulas have tremendous staying power, and not all makeup removers are capable of removing these products without lots of tugging and pulling. I was really surprised by how easily and effortlessly Nuance Dual Phase Makeup Remover removed all of my makeup, and did so without any pulling or tugging. I waited and waited for my eyes to start burning or stinging, but they didn't! SCORE!! I just wish that it had fewer chemicals in it, and I see no reason why it needs to contain Red 40 (CI 16035), Blue 1 (CI 42090). It makes no sense to me why this type of product needs any color added-- I would have by far preferred a clear formula!

Overall assessment: I really like this makeup remover. It doesn't burn my sensitive eyes, it leaves my skin soft and supple, and it even removes waterproof formulas with ease. However, I would prefer fewer chemicals in it, and definitely see no reason to add color to this product. It is a really good and economical alternative to expensive department store makeup removers.
