I don't typically wear a ton of eye makeup, but for whatever reason, it takes tons of work to get it off. I'm talking a hefty swipe of eye makeup remover, and then at least one cleanse, sometimes two, to make sure everything's off. It's not a fun process, but it's what I have to do if I don't want to stain my white pillowcases with mascara. I was really excited to try the new Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser ($38) because I love the brand, and I also have real issues with face wash. This one seemed like it wouldn't break me out; the gel formula and the clean ingredients were in line with what I needed in a product, but I wasn't prepared for how well it would remove my makeup.
Whether I have on light, natural mascara or more heavy duty, nighttime mascara, this cleanser removes it completely. I have a clean towel test, and I can say that when I wash my face at night, I come away with a clean towel, which is really exciting. This cleanser is gentle yet potent, which is exactly what I want in a beauty product, and it'll be a favorite of yours before you know it.
