I’ve been on the search for the holy grail of makeup removers. I’d like one that doesn’t leave me tugging at my eyes when I wipe it off or with scary panda eyes the next day. I can’t seem to find any official reviews I find satisfying online. Most of the ones I do find say that most of the products are about even, which from my own experience, just isn’t the case.
I’ve tried a couple but have never fallen in love with any. My first was Clinique’s Take The Day Off, which I found to be too greasy and I had to rub quite a lot.
Benefit B.Right Remove It make up remover was awful, too scented, didn’t remove much and stung like hell.
Garnier fresh eye makeup remover was good-ish, removed eye makeup, still tugged a little and very greasy though.
As much as people like Simple Kind to Eyes makeup remover, I didn’t get on with it, it didn’t remove my mascara at all and I really had to pull and wipe my eyes a lot.
I used the Mac Pro Eye Makeup Remover, but can’t remember much about it, which means it was either just meh, or it did the job so well that I didn’t really notice it.
No7 Beautiful Skin eye makeup remover was my go-to default remover until I found…
La Roche-Posay Micellar Water which is amazing and removed everything, but leaves my skin really dry.
Currently I’m using Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean, which is lovely, but I feel that it’s better for your face and it’s honestly useless on eye makeup, even if I scrub my eyes the night before, the morning after I still wake up looking like a panda.
I’ve been reading reviews and next on my list to try are Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover, and Dior’s Instant Eye Makeup Remover. I might also try the Lancôme BI-FACIL – Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover, but we’ll see what the others are like first.
