It’s not always easy to settle on a cleanser, so when we do we cherish it forever.
You want something that’s going to effectively remove all traces of waterproof mascara and caked on foundation, but that won’t leave your face wet with product or aggravate any underlying skin conditions like acne or excess sebum.
So we were taken when we came across this ‘magic’ cleanser that claims to tick all the boxes.
The Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-up Remover uses two different substances to remove make up while caring for your eyes.
First using oil to ensure effective removal of any traces of stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara, the product then introduces its aqueous phase that protects and cares for eyelashes.
And with the product selling 1.4 bottles every 30 seconds, which equates to a massive 3,965 bottles a year and a staggering 1,475,430 a year, it seems that we’re not the only ones who are taken with it.
Customers have even showered the product with a stream of five-star reviews, with one writing, ‘Best make-up remover I have ever tried!
‘Does magic tricks with my fav waterproof mascara in 2 seconds it is gone!!!
‘I haven’t just used it for my eye make-up but for my face as well. That cornflower extract its there I can really feel it. It leaves my face hydrated and moisturised’.

‘The way forward,’ added another.
‘I have used many products specifically designed to remove eye makeup from high end to high street brands..However none have removed tough stubborn eye makeup as easily as Nivea double effect eye makeup remover!
‘Such a gentle process for your eyes and a great time saver too’.
‘Does it's job excellent,’ wrote another user. ‘It doesn't leave an oily film, is non irritating, it gets off every last scrap of eye make-up, well maintaining even waterproof mascara.
‘It leaves the eye area clean and refresh with no stinging or soreness’.
‘This is SUCH an amazing product!!’ raved another. ‘I have really sensitive eyes that get so sore from trying to remove waterproof mascara using face wipes.
‘Thought I’d try this as it was on offer in Boots and omg I’m so glad I did!! I simple apply it to a cotton pad, press it onto my eye for about 20 seconds so it dissolves the mascara and then wipe away a couple of times.
‘So simple! No rubbing, no irritated eyes, no redness! If you’re thinking about buying this then go for it, I can’t rate it highly enough!’.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home—so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
