No more picking lashes off my face, thanks to MARCELLE Renforcils Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover

February 26, 2012
One of the newest releases of theMARCELLE skincare line up.  They havereplaced their old Essentials Eye Makeup Remover with this innovation, for good.  I first came across with this product at theMARCELLE group Beauty Premiere back in November 2011.  It is the second most intriguing product oftheir Spring launches, with the first being, of course, their sold out BBCream.  It is intriguing because itpromises to nourish your lashes while removing your eye makeup, even thewaterproof ones.

MARCELLE Renforcils Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover

First of all, the packaging that it comesin is the same one as their old micellar eye makeup remover (and their variouscleansers) – a squeeze tube, quite a big one too if you ask me.  You don’t really need a whole lot of theproduct, a dime size should be enough for both eyes, which means this tube willlast you quite a while.

To remove your eye makeup usingRenforcils, you would squeeze a dim size on two cotton pads (or one if youdon’t mine waiting finish removing eye makeup from one eye, then theother).  Then you would place the cottonpads, with the product, on the eyes.  Leaveit for about 10 to 15s to ensure that it’s melting your makeup.  The last step you will just have to gentlywipe the makeup off with the cotton pads. I like to use it with a sponge type cotton pad because the cotton onthese pads are less likely to come off and linger on your lashes.  Frankly, it’s a pain to remove those cotton,so if you ask me, I would highly recommend using the sponge type cotton pad ifyou choose to use cotton pads, but you can use your fingers as well.  Here's a demo on my hand with very waterproof eyeliners.

I feel that it removes makeup quitewell.  The key is to let is melt themakeup down before you wipe it.  However,you might not get all of them at one time, especially when the product is superbudge proof.  I would suggest that youcould repeat the process, or just apply a bit on to the leftover and use acotton swab to remove the rest.  Usuallyit comes off with my cleanser too, so I don’t bother doing it the secondtime.  It is better to wash your faceafter makeup removal anyway.

A major complaint that I have though isthat it stings my eyes when I use too much. One trick that Jessica from BEAUTEZINE taught me is that only use a peasize amount for both eyes, because when you use too much, it can get into youreyes.  And when it doesn’t sting, it ispretty great.  So you might want to becareful on the amount that you’re using.  You can see that my eyes got a bit red because I open my eyes right after removal and took a picture.  Usually, I do it in the bathroom, so I can remove the residue with water and not have to worry about it stinging my eyes lol.

Makeup Removal Before and After
As for the lash fortifying claim, I haven’tseen really extreme result, but every time I use this to remove my eye makeup,there are no lash fallout, which is not I usually see with other eye makeupremover.  I usually get one or two lashesfallout when I use those traditional eye makeup removers (the ones that youhave to shake and mix).  So, this is ahuge plus!

I got mine from Walmart for CA $14.96because I refuse to pay CA $17 at Shoppers Drug Mart.  The price point is not very great but you doget a lot of product with your money, so it’s not too bad.  You can get this from Canadian Walmart,Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmaplus, and online on  For those of you who live in the U.S., youcan get MARCELLE products online from their website.  They offer free shipping for orders over$50.  =)

Have you tried this new product?  How do you use this product?  Let me know =D.

  1. Ahhh I've heard so much about this amazing makeup remover! I'm really hoping Marcelle will be available to those who don't live in North America soon! 

  2. Wow this looks really promising! I tried the Neutrogena cream eye makeup remover recently and HATED it! But I think i may give this one a try!

  3. As long as you keep your eyes close before you completely remove the makeup remover, this is a great product =P.  It will be better if it doesn't sting at all =/.  Get it at Walmart though, it's about $2-3 cheaper =D.

  4. I wish a lot of brands are more accessible to everyone, like those UK only brands and US only brands >////<.
