Review: TAAJ Make-Up Remover

I have a huge love, hate relationship with this product and I’m so sad that I have going to have to give in and stop using it because my skin just isn’t happy.

This claims to be suitable for all skin types which is a bit of a fib I think because I do not class my skin as dry or sensitive, it’s more oily/combo than anything and this stuff dries my face out like no end! My eyelids are so dry they are rough!!

Other than that massive slight issue I really love this as a make up remover! It’s brilliant! Removes everything (minus waterproof mascara) completely and leaves my face feeling super clean. It breaks down the make up rather than smearing it over your face which is a huge plus for people who suffer with clogged pores BUT after literally seconds my face is as dry as a bone! My skin will flake and the skin around my eyes will be sore and rough. I can avoid this happening by applying a heavy moisturiser immediately after but I’m not comfortable with using something that requires me to slather my face in tonnes of moisturiser literally immediately after to avoid my face looking like a flaky mess.

So overall this product lives up to its claims to remove make up but not its suitability claims which is a shame because had this not been so drying, I would have re purchased. It’s around £17 for a full sized bottle which is slightly over priced for what is essentially posh water. Think I’m going to stick with my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and Bioderma!
