I am particularly bad at using a designated eye make-up remover to take off any eye make-up at the end of the day (this served as inspiration for my other Twitter handle @eyeslikepandas). I don’t not take it off but I do tend to rely on the goodwill of my other cleansing products to do the job for me… There are however occasions when an eye make-up remover is the answer and there is no getting away from it.
Many eye make-up removers feel quite oily on application and can leave a film on your skin however the Neal’s Yard Organic Eye Make-up Remover is very light and being oil free, leaves no residue. The cool and refreshing formula actually feels like you are bathing your eyes in a delicately scented cup of iced tea (I’ve never actually done that so I am surmising).
A calming infusion of aloe Vera, damask rose and the antioxidant white tea (see, I wasn’t joking about the tea) soothes, hydrates and nourishes the delicate eye area whilst conditioning the lashes.
Scent and sensation aside, the remover does what it is designed to to; easily removing eyeshadow, brow products, liner and mascara. It is at this point that I should mention that I am not a wearer of waterproof mascara, so I have only tried removing mascaras of a water resistant nature a limited number of times; it has worked but does need a little more perseverance – I can’t comment on its effectiveness on big name non-natural brands,
Have you tried it yet? If so, what did you think?
