The Product You Need to Instantly Melt Away Stubborn Makeup


Dermablend is no stranger to high-coverage and long-wear makeup formulas, so it comes as no surprise that the brand recently unveiled a powerful makeup remover called Makeup Dissolver. The team got a chance to try the new product prior to its official launch thanks to a complimentary sample sent our way by our friends at Dermablend. Curious to know our thoughts? Keep reading for our review of Dermablend Makeup Dissolver.


Don’t you even think about crawling into bed with that cat-eye on. No really—don’t. Removing your makeup isn’t the most glamorous of activities, especially when you’re dead tired, but it should be a non-negotiable step in every evening skin care routine. The reason being that makeup and cosmetics can suffocate your skin during one of the most important times of the day—deep sleep. If your skin is weighed down by makeup during these hours of the night, it can disrupt the reparation process and lead to dull-looking skin morning after morning, not to mention heighten your risk for unwanted breakouts. 

What’s more, if you continuously sleep with your makeup on without washing your pillowcase regularly, that residue can wreak havoc on your skin over time and reintroduce impurities onto your skin while you sleep. For all these reasons, it’s recommended that you remove your makeup prior to shut-eye with a tried-and-true makeup remover.

Dermablend Makeup Dissolve three


Recommended for: All skin conditions and skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. 

This makeup remover can deliver the benefits of an oil-based makeup remover in a non-greasy dissolving cream. The emulsion can instantly melt away stubborn makeup on the eyes, lips, face and body. Yes, you read that correctly. You can use this makeup dissolver to remove body makeup as well! In addition to being non-comedogenic (hear that, acne-prone skin types?), Makeup Dissolver feels lightweight and cooling on the skin. The formula is also free of parabens, sulfates and fragrance, and is vegan-friendly meaning it features no animal-derived ingredients or byproducts. As an added bonus, Makeup Dissolver can be used with or without water. If you opt to tissue off, you can carry Makeup Dissolver in your purse or with you on the go for easy use anytime, anywhere. 


As someone who regularly wears full-coverage makeup, I’m always on the lookout for a powerful, non-comedogenic formula that can effectively remove my stubborn mascara and foundation without irritating my skin. Upon applying Makeup Dissolver, I was impressed by the formula’s lightweight and non-greasy texture that felt cool and refreshing on my skin. Not all makeup removers deliver a cooling benefit, so I was pleasantly surprised by it. Not only did Makeup Dissolver immediately melt my makeup off,  but it also left my skin feeling clean and fresh as a result. Plus, I love that I have the option to use it with or without water. It’s a perfect choice for lazy nights since I can store it on my nightstand and remove my makeup from the comfort of my own bed.


Interested in giving Makeup Dissolver a try? You’re just two easy steps away. 

Step #1: Massage the makeup remover into the skin to dissolve makeup.

Step #2: Rinse or tissue off.
