Basically it's a replacement to all other forms of make up removal- be it wipes, make up remover on cotton balls, DIY remover... this one uses only...WATER! And it works!
The eraser comes in a cute little box that's shaped like an eraser- with an instructional card and the make up eraser. The box is so light I had to double check there's something inside.
The eraser i my favorite color- PINK! It's super soft and it has 2 different sides. The short side is to remove your make up- and the long nap side is to exfoliate your skin after make up removal. When it's wet it's hard to tell the difference- that's why the tag is on the long nap side.
You have to wash it before use- so instead of wasting litres of water in this heat with water restrictions in sight- I gave it a very very good hand wash. The liquid detergent doesn't foam much (as it's not made for hand washing) but it did the trick. I rinsed it till the water didn't have any residue, gave it a good wring and hung it to dry. After the wash I did notice some pink fibres on my hands so you really have to do this step.
Ok so there it hung for a few days because I was on a no make up week due to breakouts and I just melt in this heat anyway- and yesterday I used it for the first time. I was only wearing eyeliner pencil as well as liquid eyeliner with primer underneath and it was still as perfect as it was at 7am by 8pm.
I ran some warm water in the basin and thoroughly wet an area of the make up remover. It says to remove in circular motions- but I've also read to make the process a bit easier to "soak" the area a bit and then do your motions. So with my slightly warm eraser I rested the lappie on my eye, and after about 5 seconds started rubbing in a circular motion. Not seeing much on the fabric I didn't expect a difference- but 90% of tbe eyeliner had been removed! A few swipes and all was removed and I was left with non-panda eyes not even 2 minutes later! The make up eraser really shows stains though- but there will be a black one available in SA soon.
Here's a list of positive points and reasons to get a Make Up Eraser:
*It's economical- you can use it for years. Compared to the price of make up removers you save hundreds of Rands. It lasts 1000 washes!
*You only use WATER! NO chemicals!
*No stingy eyes (I have sensitive eyes)
*You just pop it in with your washing when it's dirty
*It removes waterproof make up with no fuss
