Over a week ago, i attended my friend’s daughter high school graduation.
Its a long story on how i ended up attending but to thank me, she gave me a little gift package of things.
Amongst them was this Daiso Mascara Remover
Daiso is a 100yen store in Japan. Everything in it costs 100yen or rather 105yen after adding tax [USD$1.30?] with some exceptions. For example this item is 210yen.
The Back of the package
How to use:
you break the top of the cotton swab at the blue line and the mascara remover lotion flows down to the lower cotton swab. You use this infused cotton swab to clean the mascara off your lashes with a sweeping motion [as if u are putting mascara on] Run it lightly on your waterline to remove eyeliner too etc
How it looks inside
- EXCELLENT for travel
- Removes most mascaras
- Kind on the skin surrounding your eye area than rubbing it with a cotton wool etc.
- Container can easily be converted to a fake eyelash holder etc after u finished the swabs.
- will not remove really hard wearing mascaras well like Majolica Majorca
- More expensive per use than buying plain cotton swabs and a bottle of eye makeup remover.
At the moment, i am using mascara by COSMAGIC KOSE and its quite hard to remove generally [not as hard as majomajo] but this removes it quite well!! I like its portability so its perfect for travel.
Daiso has branches all over the world but i think the stock varies [price varies too]
