on trial : two eye makeup removers

review swatch photo


As someone who likes to go heavy on the eye makeup I'm constantly trialling new eye makeup removers. My personal favourites is the Bi-phase L'Oreal Absolute Eye & Lip Makeup Remover - I absolutely cannot get enough of it. Bad Pun I know. As a beauty junkie I always feel like their is room for improvement and hunt out the next big thing. I've recently been testing two totally different eye makeup removers and here's my thoughts on the two.

Benefit They're Real Remover* - Released as part of the They're Real family from Benefit - this creamy eye makeup remover claims to remove even the most stubborn mascara. I've never had any problems with remove They're Real but apparently there was a gap in the market for it. I actually really like this. It removers eye makeup with ease and feels so soothing and cooling on the eyes. I feel like it's a mix between a cream and a balm. The packaging is pretty snazzy too.

the body shop chamomile eye makeup remover*-  This is the eye makeup specific remover from the popular Chamomile cleansing' range from The Body Shop. A bi-phase eye makeup remover this is designed to use on a cotton pad and swept off. I like that it doesn't give me cloud vision or irritate my eyes or leave a greasy film behind. Although I do like this I don't feel like it removes quite enough makeup, it often leaves waterproof mascara behind which isn't ideal for a lazy cleanse. But as a first step before using a creamy or balm cleanser to get all the dirt of your face it's very good.

  16. The Benefit remover sounds good, I use the Clarins Eye Make-Up Remover but need the sensitive version to keep my eyes from drying out so much
