Review: Marcelle Essentials Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover Gel


Price: $12.25 for 3.5 OZ/100 mL

The claims:
A refreshing sensation for your eyes.
Prettier than ever

This cool, refreshing gel dissolves all traces of makeup without leaving a sticky or greasy sensation. Its non-irritating gel formula provides instant soothing relief while skin reclaims its natural suppleness and tone. Enriched with rose water and cucumber extracts, it gently restores skin to its natural health while pampering the delicate eye area. It even helps reduce signs of fatigue, the appearance of under eye circles and puffiness. Its oil-free formula makes it a natural choice for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Hypo-allergenic and perfume free.
Ideal for all skin types.  

How to use:
Place a small amount of Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover Gel on a cotton pad. Massage on the eyelid in vertical, downward movements, then in light, circular motions around eye contour.



  • soothes and refreshes the eye contour area
  • non-greasy or sticky
  • doesn't leave residues
  • squeezable tube

  • stings very badly if you get some in your eyes

This is the average quantity you need for one eye.

You can see that I was wearing pretty heavy makeup (see this post)

Both sides of the cotton pad after removing the makeup.

Final result!

What I think:

I have never used a gel makeup remover before so I can't compare it to any other, but I like that it's non-oily or greasy and that it doesn't leave residues behind. Altough it's true that it refreshes the eye contour area, I didn't notice that it really helps reduce signs of fatigue, the appearance of under eye circles and puffiness, like it's claimed. I also like the packaging which makes it easy to get the last bits of product.

The big downside of this product it that it stings very badly if you happen to get some in your eyes, which is very strange for a soothing eye make-up remover, don't you think? Just be careful when you are removing mascara to not get any product in your eyes.

Recommend? yes
