My Husband came into the bathroom and saw me with foam all over my face and he immediately thought it was shaving foam.  Hello??!!  Yes, I admit that sometimes I let my facial hair grow much longer than it should, but it doesn’t mean that I shave it off!!!  “No, my dear, it’s not shaving foam.  I’m using Dove Foaming Make Up Remover.”

Dove Foaming Make Up Remover transforms from liquid into an ultra-fine foam to remove make-up.  The instructions state that this can be used on wet or dry face, but is best to be used with dry hands and dry face – I totally agree because with wet hands, the foam fizzles away easily.  Applying the fluffy foam onto my face provides a wonderful, soft and fluffy sensation – quite difficult to describe…but you must try it.  It’s more fun than using cleansing oils to remove make-up.  There have been many times that I have forgotten that Dove Foaming Make-Up Remover is a make-up remover!!  It does such a great job at making my face squeaky clean yet soft and supple, that I am fooled into believing it is an actual cleanser.

However, I strongly advise you to remove eye make-up separately before using Dove Foaming Make Up Remover even though it says that it can be used for eyes.  It stung like a mother the first time I used it to remove mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow on my eyes.  My poor eyeballs were red and irritated for 2-3 days.  I think it’s because you have to rub the eye make-up to remove it effectively with the lather and in doing so, some make-up residue can circulate into the eyeballs.

What I Like Foamy fun, pleasant smell, doubles up as a cleanser, affordable at RRP $10.99AUD
What I Dislike Does not remove my eye make-up without irritating my eyes
The Best Beauty Blog Rating 8 out of 10 – I would have given Dove Foaming Make Up Remover top marks if it hadn’t irritated my eyes

    Haha. I like the expression “it stung like mother”. It would have been perfect if the cleaner removes mascara/eyeliner too. Then it would be something I might go for.

      @Squeeze The Pug, LOL, I have no idea where I picked up that phrase. But yeah, it would have been perfect…but alas…

    Stung like a mother made me laugh too. I worry that foam cleansers might be too drying, did you find that?

      @Tracy D, LOL. Surprisingly, this foam didn’t dry out my skin. It feels really good. Would have been amazing if it hadn’t hurt my eyes :S

    Ohh I was dubious about the eye makup removing abilities of this! I think I will still try, but remove eye makeup separately. Great post Ling!

      @emmabovary, Thanks Emma 😀 You’re too kind.

      My left eye is still a bit red and very traumatised from the stinging… but apart from that, I seriously like it a lot.
