FAVOURITE GENTLE EYE MAKEUP REMOVERS

Gentle eye makeup removers

It's always fun putting on makeup but why is taking it off feel like a chore?! Whether I'm rocking light or heavy eye makeup, I make sure I have a selection of gentle yet effective eye makeup removers to take away the last traces of all that shadow and kohl. Here are 3 of my favourites that my peepers love.

The Body Shop eye makeup remover

First up is an old favourite from The Body Shop. Their travel size Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is perfect to throw in your bag if you're going away and it's liquid formula is gentle enough for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. They also do a waterproof version which I also love but this version is great for non waterproof makeup. I soak a cotton pad and press gently over my eye to remove and dissolve my makeup. I try not to rub as that's not great for the eyes or lashes!

A great all round cleanser and makeup remover is The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, I have to admit I didn't love this product at first because of the smell but now it's a firm favourite and I always repurchase it! For £10 it lasts for ages and works wonders when removing heavy eye makeup. I pump the oil on the palm of my hand and rub gently around my eyes, I then add water onto my skin to remove my makeup. My skin feels pump and fresh after I wash it off and not oily or greasy. This is great if you really want to get down and dirty and remove your makeup!

Benefit They're real eye makeup remover 
A new addition to my collection is the Benefit They're Real Remover. The creamy gel feel so gentle and soothing on the eyes and really removes all traces of waterproof mascara, liner you name it! I squeeze out a small amount on a cotton pad and pat gently over my eyes, it doesn't irritate, sting or have a strong scent. If you prefer a cream formula over liquid then this is a great one to try. I also love the packaging and it's travel friendly too.

  1. Love The Body Shop's cleansing oil but really dislike their eye makeup remover. I found it stung so badly! Never tried the Benefit one but I'm sure it's good considering how tough it is to get off their mascaras!

  5. I always hold back on buying the Body Shop's chamomile cleansing oil, now I'm fully convince to buy it next time after finishing the cleanser I am using right now which is a miscellar water. Hopefully, it will work better on removing make-up!

    A whole lot of serendipity

  6. I had never seen the cleansing oil from The Body Shop, I'll have to give it a look next I time I come across the shop. I like to use the Double Effect Makeup Remover from Nivea, it's very gentle with my eyes (and entire face) and removes every single bit. It's half oily so I like to massage my face as well with it :) xx

  8. I'd love to try the Benefit version in the future as I love the mascara from the same range but sometimes hate removing it with my normal Micellar Water as it takes a lot more time & effort than usual x

  29. Love the look of the Body Shop one, might give it a try. I usually use either Garnier or L'Oreal. There's one that's specifically for eyes and lips which is great if you've really plastered on a statement lip for a night out! I think that's a L'Oreal one. x

  30. Sephora do a biphase eye make up remover that is really effective, but unless I have very heavy make up I tend to use a normal cleanser like Soap & Glory's Ultimelt or Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser.

  31. Oops sorry Hanh, I could've sworn I was following you before! Well I am now :P
    Anyways, I love your photography :) I like the sound of the chamomile makeup removers, but my skin is quite sensitive to anything 'natural' like chamomile or lavender so I'm a bit scared haha. I've recently tried the La-roche posay micellar water and it's not too bad so far.

  33. Biphase ones are great for waterproof makeup. I love the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser too! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just made sure I'm following you too Sheri! I can imagine having sensitive skin, you're wary of certain ingredients. That's great you've found one that works for you :)

  35. That's exactly why I don't wear waterproof mascara haha x

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmm.. I've been on the lookout for a good eye makeup remover. I've used tons and none can remove waterproof mascara without vigorous rubbing. I'm currently using Clinique's eye makeup remover, the Benefit one looks like a good one to try next! Xx
