Apothecary: Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel

Hello ladies,

I wanted to share my experience using Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel. I love wearing eye makeup almost as much as I enjoy nail polish. I experiment with pigments, hand pressed shadows, mineral makeup, cosmetic glitter, liquid liner, colored mascara and more. My choice in eye makeup is often as bold and colorful as my manicures. I am pleased to have found Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel to help take the color off when I am ready.

Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel is simple to use. I dampened my eye area with water, added a small amount of the gel to a cotton pad and easily wiped my makeup away. In most cases, I was able to use one pad for both eyes. The only variant was removing dark, navy eye shadow. I needed to go over both eyelids with an extra cotton pad and a fresh application of gel.

I have also been using the Eye Makeup Remover Gel to clean my skin between swatching shadows on the side of my hand. I was really impressed that I could go from dark to light shades without any trace or residue of color.

The gentle formula is useful for people with sensitive skin. There are soothing botanicals present to care for the skin during makeup removal. Cornflower, chamomile and eyebright are known for their healing properties, especially for the delicate area around the eyes.

Cornflower and eyebright have natural antioxidant properties. Chamomile has often been used to help with puffiness in the eye area. I am continually impressed with Reviva Lab's well researched use of plant extracts. The choices are always specific to nature of the product.

I am happy to have found a quality, natural product for eye makeup removal that is both effective and non-irritating. It's perfect for the woman who loves color and has sensitive eyes. I can recommend Reviva Lab's Eye Makeup Remover Gel wholeheartedly.

This product was sent to me for review. Reviva Labs Eye Makeup Remover Gel is available for purchase at A 2oz. bottle sells for $5.00. For a chance to win a full size bottle in a Spring Beauty gift pack, please visit the contest post. There is one day left to enter!

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. Oh wow, I love the sound of a gel eyemakeup remover. It sounds similar to one of my current methods where I just apply sorbolene (yes I'm lazy), wait for it to dissolve the makeup a bit, and then wipe it away with a cotton pad :)

  2. ahhh bearded iris thank you for showing the northern US flowers

  3. I can't believe I had forgotten about Irises. I love all the different colors they come in. I guess they don't fair will in Florida. Hence, I never see any and forgot how awesome they are. Your photos of them are beautiful.

  4. Beautiful Iris! A manicure with those colors would be lovely in Autumn. The makeup remover sounds nice. I use Lancome's remover which I like.
