Fresh Soy Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover (review)

A breakthrough formula that gently and effectively removes all traces of makeup, including waterproof, while treating the lashes and moisturizing the skin around the eye area.

Soy proteins are rich in amino acids that help maintain elasticity and healthy-looking skin, while mallow extract is notable for its soothing properties. The formula is further enriched with cornflower extract, which helps to tone and enhance suppleness; cucumber extract, which helps to soothe and hydrate; ginseng root extract, which aids in nourishing, invigorating, and revitalizing the skin; and vitamins C and E, which offer antioxidant protection.

Formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

I hardly review a product just after using it twice or thrice. I give skincare products good amount of testing time before drafting a review on them. Even simple cleansers are tested for more than 2 weeks. This Fresh Soy Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover is a product that does its job very well, but with a minor flaw, which unfortunately is a major one for me.

This was a deluxe sample from Sephora and I was very excited to try this.

Color: White

Texture and Consistency: Soft, creamy, light weight, non sticky, not too thick or runny

Scent: It has a pleasant scent with hint of cucumber, very much like the Soy cleanser. I didn't liked the scent of the Soy Cleanser earlier, because the one I got was dud or from bad batch. The newer ones that I tried later were pleasant and not bothering my nose at all.

Application: I used it like any other eye makeup remover. I mean how creative can you get while using an eye makeup remover. Just a little more than pea size product is needed for removing the eye makeup. Massage lightly over and around the eyes (lids close). Let it sit for few 30-45 seconds and then wipe it off with damp cotton pad.

Feel and Effect on the eye: This feels soft and nice and everything when the eyes are closed. But tiniest amount of it INSIDE the eye and the eyes are on fire!! I kid you not, this thing burns the hell out of my eye. As far as removing makeup is concerned, it gets rid of every single trace of makeup and does not leave any greasy residue. It did not dry the delicate eye area too. Also, water proof mascara was gone in one use. The key is to let it stay there on the eye after application for few seconds, so as to loosen up the makeup.

Packaging: Mine was a deluxe sample size. So it came in a decent pump. The pump dispenses needed amount of product. The full size too comes in a neat pump. 

Verdict: The product removes the eye makeup really easily and effectively, without leaving a residue. My only issue is the terrible burning of my eyes. It is very difficult to wipe off eye makeup without letting the product go in. No matter how tight I close the eyes, the product manages to seep in. Now, this might be an issue with my eyes only, but it does not means that the product is bad. It did its job of removing eye makeup wonderfully. 

Do give this product a try (get a sample). It is such a bummer that this didn't work for me.
