Missha The Style White Tea Lip&Eye Makeup Remover Review

Today's review will be about MISSHA The Style White Tea Lip&Eye Makeup Remover I bought several months ago.

First thing first... What is makeup remover?

Makeup remover is a product used to remove the makeup products applied on the skin. It cleans the skin before other procedures, like applying bedtime lotion.

It is important to use makeup remover every day to completely remove foundation, eye makeup, and lipstick to allow the skin to "breathe" and prevent clogged pores, pimples, breakouts and dull skin.

Be sure to choose an eye makeup remover designed for the eyes, and a different regular makeup remover for the face. Eye makeup removers are designed to be gentler, as it is easy to irritate eyes. Our eye area is so delicate so we must handle it with much more effort. Be sure not to pull at the skin when removing makeup, particularly the delicate skin around the eyes.

When choosing a new makeup remover, it might be a good idea to test it in a small area to be sure an allergic reaction does not occur. If you are allergic, or if the product seems to cause irritation, switching to a different one is generally necessary.

I'm still looking for eye makeup remover that works best on me, so I decided to give this product a try.

Light and fresh water-type eye and lip makeup remover. Mild formula for gentle cleansing. Contains white tea extract to remove impurities and makeup residue on the sensitive lip and eye areas without irritation. Nett 90 ml.

HOW TO USE. Shake well before use to mix the two layers. Get appropriate amount onto a cotton ball and gently swipe eyes and lips to remove makeup.

MISSHA The Style White Tea Lip&Eye Makeup Remover comes in heart-shaped plastic bottle. Pretty cute, eh? When I finish this product I actually want to keep the bottle. lol

MISSHA The Style White Tea Lip&Eye Makeup Remover has a slightly acidic smell.
As you can see from the picture, this product does the job (removing makeup) well. After several swipes my makeup swatches are gone. But because this makeup remover is water-based, I find it difficult to remove waterproof mascara.

I bought this from Althea Indonesia for approximately IDR 60k (USD 5.60 at Missha US). Quite affordable I think.

I've tried MISSHA The Style White Tea Lip&Eye Makeup Remover for 3 months now (it almost empty). Although this product feels really gentle on my eye area, I think I will not repurchase (..still looking for suitable eye-lip makeup remover). But I do recommend this if you have sensitive skin or simply want to try gentle makeup remover.

+ Affordable
+ Not tested on animals!
+ Gentle, does not irritate my eyes
+ Does the job well..
- Not suitable for waterproof makeup

you may....
if you're looking for gentle and cruelty free lip-eye makeup remover with affordable price
if you're wearing waterproof makeup on daily basis


  1. According to this article, the most important thing when choosing the perfect makeup remover is to avoid those that contain alcohol, fragrances and preservatives whenever possible, especially if you have sensitive skin.
  2. After using a makeup remover, always wash your face with a gentle face cleanser. Remember: Double cleansing is a must!


What's your favorite makeup remover?
