Make-up Remover Review

Your choice in make up remover can be a very personal thing I find, what works for some won’t work as well for others. For me, I like a cleanser that removes heavy eye make up without leaving oily rings around my eyes and that doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes. A lot of the time I use MAC gel eyeliner which is a pain to get off ( I foolishly used to scrub at my eyes for ages with a make up removal wipe which just left me with sore, red eyes and my eyeliner intact). I have reviewed 4 that I have used regularly in the last 6 months. My all time favourite has to be the Clarins Instant Eye Make Up Remover. It is a little on the oily side, but I wash my face as part of my skin care routine anyway. It does a really good job of removing my waterproof mascara too. Also if I have forgotten to clean my eyeliner brush and I’m in a hurry this was the best for giving it a quick clean with a cotton pad so it was ready to use. I also love Bioderma Micelle Solution for Sensitive skin. With a bit of effort it removes all my eye make up without irritating my eyes whatsoever plus it leaves no greasy residue on my skin. This isn’t just an eye make up remover and works equally well for removing foundation but perhaps not as well as a thorough wash will. Luckily I can get my hands on this really easily- one of the perks of living in continental Europe. Lancôme Bi Facil is popular but I didn’t really like it. It feels really oily but does do a pretty good job of getting everything off quickly. I can only really justify using it if I don’t have something else to hand as it did irritate my eyes. Lastly an eye make up remover I wouldn’t recommend would be the Chanel Intense Eye Make Up Remover. I usually adore Chanel cosmetic products but this was no better than a Nivea make up remover and for the price I did expect something more impressive. It does remove make up well, but you have to use a lot of it to do so, plus it was super greasy which irritated my eyes. Hope this was helpful- let me know what else you’d like to see a review on!
