Mini Review: Rimmel London Eyeliner & Makeup Remover

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
I usually use coconut oil for my makeup removal.  I tend to find ways to save money and be as eco friendly, organic and natural as I can when it comes to beauty products. Coconut Oil is a decently priced for a jar and that one time buy lasts for quite a long time.
I've never used a liquid eye makeup remover before so I was very curious about this and wondered how it would stand up to my normal routine.  I'll be completely honest, when I first tried to use it, I put waaay too much product on my cotton swab and let me just say that even if the packaging says "gentle" it still burns when you put a cotton ball soaked with eye makeup remover to your eye.  Let's just call that "user error".
But I did try again with less product.  It says that it's great for removing waterproof mascara.  Well... my mascara wasn't waterproof but my eyeliner was.  And it was HELL to get off.  This time, I really don't think it had anything to do with the fact that I had never used it before.  It's hard to wipe off makeup in a wrong way.  Seriously.  You put on the remover crap and wipe your eye with it.  Not only did I have to wipe an insane amount of times but it smeared everywhere. 
I'm definitely going to give this one more try but as for the first attempt, I have to say I'm not a fan.  Like I said, I'm going to try it one more time and see if it gets a little better.  I definitely wouldn't have purchased this for myself but it will get used.  In the future though, I think I'm going to stick to my coconut oil.

This is the waterproof eyeliner mentioned above. 
The Frosty VoxBox couldn't have come at a better time!  I had run out of eyeliner and was in definite need of some more.  I was also super happy because I mostly use black eyeliner and this one was in a nice black shade.
I absolutely love this eyeliner.  Removing it with the above mentioned eye makeup remover was difficult but the actual application was a breeze.  It glides on so easily and is so opaque that you only need like one swipe.
I will definitely be using the rest of this eyeliner and I will probably purchase this kind again in the future. 
No mascara, just eyeliner.
