L'Oreal Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

The beauty market seems to be inundated with eye makeup remover. This product comes in all different shapes and sizes. Whether you're looking for a liquid/water, gel, milk, cream solution or even a packet of eye makeup remover wipes, there are tonnes of offerings from every brand you can think of. I often find that there are so many varieties and brands available to us it's hard to know where to start.

A while ago, I was in Boots looking for some L'Oreal Micellar water and this is when I noticed their eye makeup remover. Not only did the £1.99 (it was on offer) price tag appeal to me, the fact that is was a gentle remover was a huge bonus. I have very sensitive skin and I often find that eye makeup removers aggravate the outer corners of my eye as this is where my skin is extremely sensitive.

As well as being enriched with a Pro-Vitamin formula, this eye makeup remover is suitable for those who wear contact lens's and those with sensitive eyes. Although this is a gentle formula, it is fantastic at removing eye makeup. When I'm only wearing a light coat of mascara and nothing else, I find that this product removes all traces with a few wipes. On those days where I have opted for heavier eye makeup, I find it has removed all traces with the use of 1 or 2 cotton pads. It really is effective. 


Although this product has super simple packaging, I don't feel as though it looks cheap or tacky at all. The plastic bottle with the flip top lid is a great concept; the lid is secure so the product won't leak, the fact that it's made of plastic makes it perfect for travelling with (it won't smash everywhere and won't weigh too much in your case) and the lid provides easily application of the product onto a cotton pad with no waste. 

This product is colourless, odourless and is extremely affordable retailing at around £3.49 for 125ml. For the price, this is an amazing product and I would recommend it it for anyone - whether you're really into skincare or whether you're just testing the waters; this is wonderful. I find that this 125ml bottle lasts anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks and when you consider how little it cost it definitely will not break the bank. This is one L'Oreal product that should not be over looked. 

I love this stuff and I feel as though
L'Oreal have upped their game when it comes to their
makeup removal products. Have you tried this eye makeup remover?
