Influenster Reviews: Rimmel Products

So recently I received some Rimmel London products from Influenster to try and review. Today, this blog post is just for that. My thoughts and reviews on the two Rimmel London products:

Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

The first of two Rimmel London beauty products, the Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. I was very exceed when I first saw this as it came at a perfect time when I was between products, I figured this might be my best friend when it came to my nightly routine of makeup removal.

Nope. It's more like the friend who promises they'll never betray you but then leaves you wondering "Why??" Now jokes aside, let me be clear. It did a good job of removing my makeup.

In fact, like the bottle says it really is oil free and didn't leave my skin feeling like it had weird residue that required some scrubbing afterwards. My normal makeup came off just fine but it did kinda falter when it came to taking off waterproof makeup, which I'm surprised about because the bottle clearly read 'REMOVES WATERPROOF MAKEUP'.

Another issue I had with this was that despite saying GENTLE on the bottle, it was not gentle to my eyes at all. I had the misfortune of accidentally getting some in my left eye and let me tell you. It sucks. It wasn't gentle AT ALL. It actually hurt quite badly. Maybe I'm a sucker at dealing with pain, or maybe this product isn't as gentle as it wants you to think.

Another problem I had, and this one I consider a major one. You now how I said it didn't feel like it left my skin weird or sticky or anything? Well it might not leave your skin feeling weird but it did cause me to get a slight rash around my eyes. The area I used it on developed a slight pink tint and had a couple a of small pimples like the type you get during an allergic reaction or rash.

Don't let my experience deter you from trying it out to see if you'll like it though. Personally I found it was good for normal stuff, but waterproof I'd rather stick to something else. Also I'll stick to my usual because my usual doesn't give me a rash when I use it. Bummer, I wanted to love it.

Now, unto product #2!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

Hands down, one of my favorite eyeliners to date! Easy to apply, long lasting and I love that it applies smoothly. No smudging when I use it. At first glance I thought this was a Twist-Up kind of pencil but turns out you sharpen it when you need to sharpen it . The quality is AWESOME on this, I just can't stop recommending it to my friends. I kind of almost swear by this pencil. If You're on the market for a new pencil, I really would ask you give this one a shot!
