Any regular readers of my blog will know that I’ve been trying out different eye make-up removers lately as I am yet to find one I like. I’ve mentioned before about trying to the popular Bioderma but I haven’t got around to ordering it yet so have been trying out different ones from the high street.
I have sensitive skin and often wear make-up that is hard to remove, in particular some of my mascara’s are a little tricky so I need a remover that is strong enough to properly clean but not make my eyes sore and irritated. The Boots Botanics Eye Make-up remover seemed perfect. It is suitable for all skin types, is brightening and even claims to remove waterproof mascara.
Naturally, I had high hopes for this product and looked forward to trying it the same evening I had purchased it. Unfortunately, I was left disappointed. The Botanics eye make-up remover is oil based and as a result left my eyes feeling very greasy and slimy. I’ve used oil based removers in the past and if I’m honest I’m not a fan of them but usually they are just about bareable. This one, however, is not. I had trouble removing the residue and found that not all of my make-up had been taken off either. As a result, sadly this eye make-up remover isn’t one I will be repurchasing, in fact, I haven’t used it since. It’s a real shame because it is a good price and readily available.
The Boots Botanics eye make-up remover can be purchased from Boots for £2.66.
