I’ve read so many amazing things about the Melvita brand but hadn’t had a chance to try anything myself. This all changed last week when I was sent a few products to try, and what an introduction it’s been! My absolute favourite from those I was sent is this Melvita Floral Bouquet Eye Make-Up Remover, which is bi-phase (similar to the newest Elemis one, as well as Clinique Take the Day Off) but the big difference between the other bi-phase ones I’ve used and this one, is that it isn’t greasy at all. Therefore, if you find the typical oiliness of bi-phase products too rich for your eyes, this is one for you to try.
The remover itself is a beautifully scented and extremely gentle product containing moisturising rose floral water, orange blossom and cornflower floral water, the latter of which is a decongestant. As you’d expect from a bi-phase, this melts through make-up quickly and easily with minimal tugging, but amazingly doesn’t leave any sort of residue, so I would imagine this is ideal for contact lens wearers. The timing of this arrival was perfect as I was just finishing up my Elemis bi-phase, and, dare I say it, I think I prefer the Melvita offering, mainly because it smells wonderful, is very gentle, leaves no residue and it’s reasonably priced at £14.50. Available now from Melvita here.
Sounds like a great product 🙂

This sounds lovely. Do you happen to know how it fairs against waterproof mascara?

So sorry Liz, it’s been ages since I’ve used Waterproof mascara so I wouldn’t be able to comment. I’d guess at it not be great for it though as I don’t think it would be ‘robust’ (for want of a better way of phrasing it!) enough to cut through waterproof…I could be wrong though! Have you tried Bioderma? xx
Yes I’ve tried Bioderma and do like it, the one I’m using right now is the new-ish Ren cleansing water, which I also like, but again, struggles with waterproof. I probably need to get a really classic oily bi-phase one in order to remove waterproof, but my eyes don’t seem to like those as much. Thanks for your reply!
