Nuxe Rêve de Miel Face Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel review

As my bottle of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil runs low, I've been thinking about which makeup remover to use next. Since the Nuxe Rêve de Miel Face Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel* ($19CDN, 200ml) landed on my door a few weeks ago, it seemed like as good an option as anything else. DHC is a hard act to follow. As one of my favorite cleansing oils, DHC always rinses clean and I never worry about residual makeup or breakouts.

The Nuxe Rêve de Miel Face Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel promises to remove make-up and impurities with its honey texture. The soap-free gel is supposed to having a melting texture and is applied onto damp skin.

 At first glance, I thought the Gel was a cleansing oil (I had missed the 'gel' in the title). When I think of makeup removers, I tend to think of oils and the thick consistency inside the bottle seemed quite oil-like. It pumps out thickly, but as promised it melts onto your skin , but but it has a really strong scent of heavy honey.

Overall, this works well as a cleanser. Barely half a pump will get you far since it lathers up so much. It does remove most of my makeup but the eye area needed a little more work so I wouldn't rely on this solely. The texture is very comfortable. The thickness of the gel followed by the light lather was very plush but the scent was strong enough that I won't be using this much. Thankfully I have another bottle of DHC in my storage.

Have you ever been turned off a product b/c of the scent even though it worked well enough?
