To remove my eye make-up my regular eye make-up remover of choice is Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Make-Up Remover Gel which is as cheap as chips but pretty damn amazing.
However I ran out and as I don't have a Boots store near I had to make do with what my local supermarket offered and that is how I came about testing Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2-in-1 Make-Up Remover.
I don't really deem myself to have sensitive skin but when it comes to my eyes I do tend to go for the most gentle option as I feel you can never really play it too safe and this one does promise to
contain no perfume, no alcohol and you do not have to rub to see results.
All of those of those aspects have turned out to be true but I don't really rate it as a facial make-up
removing product due to it being rather oily - the blue layer on top is a make-up removing oil
that is enriched with B5 and to activate it you simply shake the bottle combining the two liquids
then dispense the product on to cotton pads and swipe away any make-up.
I dislike oil on my face but as an eye make-up remover it is rather effective,
gentle on the eyes yet powerful enough to remove stubborn waterproof mascara
without having to be vigorous and upsetting the delicate eye area.
Surprisingly although oil based it does not leave behind much of a residue
but if you are anti-oil like myself it is nothing that a dry cotton pad can't mop up.
