Face of Australia Gentle Make-Up Remover

Cutest poster! Taken from FOA site, not my own
I have a confession- I am in the middle of a love affair with the Face of Australia brand. Solid products, great communication between brand and customers, and the products are super-affordable! I had planned on holiding back this review since I reviewed the lip plumpers the other day, but I need to share my love with the world!

This is a two phase remover, which means that one layer of product sits on top of another, and to activate you have to shake the bottle. I then pour a little out onto a cotton circle, and remove away! FOA advises users to be careful not to get eye make-up into the eye when using this, but I'm never careful and it still works like a dream. I usually use one cotton circle for face (depending on how much make-up I have on for that day) and one for my eyes. 
This is my eye before using:

sorry that it's so out of focus and crap, I stuffed up my liquid liner and had to start again
And after ONE 'hold and swipe':

one go! amazing!
It is true that this product is gentle on the eye, and I find it to leave no oil on my lids after use, nor does it sting. The only thing I'd change about this is the opening- I find I have to sort of 'fling' the product out, and would prefer a squeeze top or something similar. Doesn't really bother me, and I was hard-pressed to pull out a negative about it at all.

All in all: am in love, and pushing bottles of this into the hands of everyone I know *pushes into your hands*
Will repurchase over and over, no doubt.

$8.95 AUD for 125 mL, and is available at Priceline, Big W, Kmart among other retailers.
Check out for more information on their amazing range!
Note: This product was sent for consideration, which in no way affects my opinion of it. Always honest!


  1. I agree on the dispenser. It's kind of awkward. Really the only fault though, so pretty good. (:

  2. I wish these products were available in Canada, this look absolutely amazing!

  3. I do also love this make up remover and have always used this type of dispenser so it doesn't really bother me.
    I used to buy one that was the exact same quality as the FOA one and the same size, but it cost me $40.
    A saving of over $30 is amazing and for an Australian Product and I will keep purchasing for as long as they continue to make it! :)

  4. Michelle- I'm getting used to the dispenser, I'm impressed that it's the only thing I would change.x

    Cee-The brand has such a stellar range, sucks that Canada can't get it! I'm sure there are a lot of items in Canada I'd love to get my hands on,though.x

    Candi- yay, converted! Your make-up remover was nice, but your Mum will be happier to keep buying you this I'm sure=)

  5. I just bought this about a month back. It's still sitting on my shelf though. Gotta start trialling it! Sounds like an amazing and functional one. :)

  6. I have to say I am really quite impressed by this product too!
