Makeup Melt Never-Greasy Eye Makeup Remover Gel
Makeup removers are available in many different forms, and Bliss' Makeup Melt Never-Greasy Eye Makeup Remover Gel is an interesting take on an old-school idea. The best part is that this works like a charm.
This fragrance-free makeup remover comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. The product itself has a thick, jelly-like texture that cushions skin. You're instructed to apply it to a cotton pad, then smooth it across your face and rinse it off, kind of like you would with a classic cold cream.
We'll admit we were impressed: True to its name, this melts away all kinds of makeup, including long-wear formulas, with little to no effort. It rinses cleanly without making skin feel dried out; instead, skin is left a bit softer.
If you've been looking for an alternative to liquid makeup removers, this is a great option, especially if you have drier skin.
- Jelly-like texture cushions skin.
- Gently and effectively removes makeup, even long-wear formulas.
- Fragrance free.
The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.
Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Blisss iconic white with splashes of color packaging.
Blisss biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Blisss offerings you just have to know where to look.
