Who doesn’t love a smokey eye? We do not love morning panda eyes though do we now?! Here are my favourite high-performing eye make up removers.
First up a supermarket eye makeup remover. Yes you heard me right! Supermarket! Well this is a Waitrose product, so it’s a high end supermarket! This is only £1.99 for a big bottle! Admittedly I do use this to help clean my makeup brushes and it performs well on my foundation brushes! It’s also really good for its intended use! It contains vitamin E and camomile, which help make it very gentle on your peepers, but it also performs well. Its fragrance free and contains 99.4% naturally derived ingredients. I have seen some reviewers say the formulation changed a year ago or so, and it’s a bit stingy now on very sensitive eyes. I don’t find it so and I do have sensitive skin, so for the price if it doesn’t work for you, use on your brushes!
Next the high end remover is from Bobbi Brown. This is £9 for a little travel sized bottle (this is a limited size, it’s always available in a larger size) and this is the Instant Long Wear Makeup Remover. This is a really nice oil based product that seriously shifts eye and lip makeup. What else would you expect from such an esteemed brand?! I find this is a really refreshing eye makeup remover, it’s very gentle and performs really well on waterproof products. It’s expensive though, and you do need to use quite a bit to get rid of all of your makeup.
I’ve saved the best until last! Liz Earle Eyebright is £13.25 for a huge bottle that lasts forever. I have already reviewed Eyebright in full here. The best thing about this product is yes it’s a hugely gentle eye makeup remover, but it also doubles as a little tired eyes treatment. If you saturate some cotton wool pads in Eyebright, place over your closed eyes and have a little rest, it refreshes and de-puffs tired eyes. None of the other products do this, so while expensive it’s well worth it!
