Island Basics Lavender & Tea Tree Makeup Remover

Lately, I have been using an oil based makeup remover which also has other purposes. This was the Human Nature Sunflower Oil. I loved the product and it's inexpensive. However, when I found the Island Basics Lavender & Tea Tree Makeup Remover, I had a sudden change of heart.

The Island Basics Lavender & Tea Tree Makeup Remover is made with virgin coconut oil, essential oils of lavender, tea tree and witch hazel extract. What I put a few drops on my facial cotton pads and gently wipe the makeup off of my face.

The Good Bits:

Removing the makeup off of my face
First of all it's inexpensive. For only P100 you can get 50ml of the product. It comes in a very simple but elegant packaging. The fact that this product is organic just makes you want to buy this. As for its effectivity on being a makeup remover, I'm totally hands down. You just need a few drops of this product and you can remove your normal makeup. The scent is very calming and I love it. It has claims of moisturizing your skin afterwards, so definitely, it's a perfect makeup remover.

The Bad Bits:

I'm not a fan of squeezing the bottle slightly before having the product. I prefer it if I could just pump it since it would be easier that way; and though the scent doesn't bother me, as it even gives me a relaxing sensation, it may bother a few people because I know some who doesn't want their products scented or really very picky with the scent of the products they use.

Asked if I would repurchase this product, I sure would! It's inexpensive, organic and works well on me. Why would I ever have second thoughts? I'm giving this product a rating of 9/10. Definitely worth every cent. If you want to see their products, you can check out:
