Kaya Hydra-Cleanse Makeup Remover: The magic potion of makeup removers? Product review and product update.

Kaya Hydra-Cleanse Makeup remover 3-in-1 review.

Call me obsessive, but, like putting on makeup, taking it off is an elaborate ritual for me. Little can I stress enough about the importance of cleaning makeup, especially around the eye. I have my cleansing routine. But, recently, since I am paying more attention to my eye makeup, it implies that I have to be more careful with the removal. I was looking for something really gentle and hassle-free, some time before the Durga Puja when Kaya Hydra-Cleanse Makeup Remover arrived.

I can't thank the brand enough for not only sharing Kaya Hydra-Cleanse Makeup Remover, but also sharing it at the right moment. But, as you have seen, blogging has been slow. So, let me take the plunge right away.

My experience of Kaya Hydra-Cleanse Makeup Remover:

 Eye makeup removers are really not that common in India. Moreover, the ones which are available are
not really very inexpensive. I was looking for something which would be mild and gentle. My The Body Shop Chamomile Gentle Cleanser is proving to be not that efficient with heavy eye makeup. Besides, I don't always feel like doing all the rubbing and scrubbing to get rid of the last trace of kohl.

As per the direction, I take a little bit of Kaya Hydra Cleanse on a cotton pad and gently wipe around. I wouldn't say that I need a pea-size, but a coin-size amount is sufficient for my entire face as well as heavy eye-makeup.

Like it claims, it leaves the skin clean and HYDRATED and gently takes off everything including water-proof mascara. If I have heavy water-proof stubborn kohl, I might have to go over rubbing a little bit more on the lash-lines. But, over all, it does an amazing job!

100 ml comes for 290 Rupees which is pretty value for money I would say because even with frequent use, I am still left with about half of the tube. I love using it especially on days when I have heavy eye makeup on and I want an easier task.
NOTE: Even thought the tube says that it is gentle on the eyes and lips, in other words, fit for eyes and lips, I did not find any mention if it is opthamologically tested. I don't know if that is a big issue or if there are technicalities here.

Verdict: I have not used many Kaya products. Usually, I am put off by their 'whitening' adverts, but, I am definitely repurchasing this makeup remover and recommending it to you because time is too precious to be wasted unnecessarily in makeup removal.

An Update: I had reviewed The Body Shop's Chamomile Makeup remover for Eyes and Lips. It's not the one meant for water-proof makeup. Back then, since I did not do heavy eye makeup, I was impressed. But now that my eye-makeup game is completely changed, I have changed my view. I might want to try their Chamomile Makeup Removing Balm.

Product by the brand. Honest review.
