A couple of months ago I purchased Urban Decay Clean and Sober make up remover during a huge website sale the company was having in August. I was excited because it was on sale for like $3. It’s original price is $18.
I thought it was a cleanser in which you use water to make it lather and then rinse it off. This was not the case. It’s a product where you would use cotton balls or a tissue to wipe off your make up. After discovering this, I thought it would be a great eye make up remover. Nope, not at all. Clean and Sober make up remover burned my eyes. I was hoping this was going to be a cheaper alternative to my beloved Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanse, but it is very different.
Don’t get me wrong, Clean and Sober does remove make up. It just takes quite a bit and afterwards, my skin still doesn’t feel really clean. It’s mandatory that I go wash my face afterwards. If I have to go through all of this, I’d rather just use my favorite Ponds wipes.
In conclusion, I would not recommend this product nor will I ever buy it again. I’m very happy that I didn’t pay the full price for it. The positive side is that it only cost $3, the downside is that I bought 4 of them thinking they were going to work differently. This was another example of how a brand that makes some of my favorite products can also make my least favorite. Overall I’m a fan of Urban Decay, I was just thoroughly disappointed with this make up remover.
