Foolproof Removal with Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup


Shortly before the Christmas season, my local Superdrug received a major upgrade on their beauty aisle. What used to just stock the standard groups such as Rimmel and Maybelline, now stocked the likes of TheBalm and Makeup Revolution. I was so excited to see TheBalm display. It had been sold on the Debenhams website for a while, and I couldn't find it in Florida, so to hold a product in my hands was amazing. There was so many things that I wanted to try, but I had to reign myself in.


I picked up TheBalms Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup. I heard about the "'Tube" that balms worked the best at removing stubborn and waterproof eye makeup, such as mascara and eye-liner. I always find that I have leftover mascara all around my eyes, even after rubbing with a cotton round and my micellar water. I've noticed that all the tugging is starting to wear at my eyelashes; that I have more randomly falling out days later. This seemed to be the answer to my prayers!


The product in the tin is a very clear, thick balm that reminds me of vaseline, despite the fact I have not been near a tub of it in years. At the same time it feels nice, in a gooey way. I gently rub a small amount onto my eyes, making sure to massage it into my eyelashes. It advises you to just wipe away with a clean, dry cloth, but I prefer to follow up with a light swipe of my micellar water.


The result is the removal of all my eye makeup; there was no a single bit left! The balm left my eye area feeling super soft and nourished. My eyelashes were still slightly glossy, though all the product had definitely been removed. I thought that there would be a chance that the Balms Away may have irritated my sensitive eyes, but thankfully it did not! TheBalm Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup can be purchased at Superdrug for £15.49. Pricey, I know! But I have no regrets. I truly think that this is a great product, for me, as it has made my life so much easier.

Let me know: Have you tried TheBalm Balms Away Eye Makeup Breakup, or have you found another balm cleanser that works better?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
