I have tried so many different eye make up removers which claimed to be gentle or kind but they turned out to sting the bajeesus out of my peepers!
I read about the Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Make-up remover £14 for 75ml, which claims it is as 'gentle to the eyes as tears' so I thought how on earth could it sting?
Well the first time I applied it to my eyes it did sting and I was disappointed. However, I have continued to use it and after the first application it no longer irritated my eyes.
So I wouldn't say it is as kind as tears, as my tears don't sting!
It is a really strange consistency, a slightly wattery gel, and it has no smell what so ever. It does remove make up effectively and it doesn't leave any sticky residue which I like.
I have always had to apply more than once to remove all of my eye make up unless I am only wearing mascara but anything else like eyeshadow and definitely eye liner I have needed 2 or 3 applications.
I probably wont buy it again at the moment as I feel £14 is too much when other cheaper products do the same.
- The bottle is a nice small size to take on your travels or put in your handbag.
- Don't need to apply much product for it to work effectively
- Takes of make up well
- Not oily
- Doesn't leave residue
