So eye makeup remover is a MUST for me!! I wear loads of eye makeup on a daily basis and all of my liners are black. Let's just say that it can be very difficult to remove my makeup even with me cleansing and really scrubbing my face. I'm also really gentle around my eye area but it's the first area to wrinkle and it's extremely sensitive. Side story: About two months ago, I was washing my face and I was being very rough and actually popped a blood vessel in my eye! It was painful and bleeding inside of my eye! It wasn't a cute look to go with my full makeup look.
I'm usually always good about removing my eye makeup and 70% of the time I'm gentle... but I still have those moments. Eye makeup removers are 100% a must as part of my skincare routine. Also, it helps remove eye shadow fall out before I apply my foundation.
I'm currently using two different eye makeup removers: my beloved Bobbi Brown and now Estee Lauder's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. I've already shared my thoughts about Bobbi's here and now it's all about sharing the love for Estee!
This gentle eye makeup remover is oil and fragrance- free. It's also ophthalmologist-tested which is super important because I wear contact lenses and I also don't want to be blinded just because I love to wear black liner! It's also gentle and lightweight so it won't fight with your skincare routine or feel like it's clogging your pores. Everyone can use it and it's for all skin types! I love when things are super easy and works for everyone. Just grab it and go! Also, have you ever used an eye makeup remover that's heavy and oily and when you use it and then try to apply makeup immediately afterwards it changes the texture or look of the product? I have and I hate it! This product won't conflict with anything you're currently using.
So far I've used it to remove black mascara, black liquid eye liner on lid, black eye liner for waterline, and multiple eye shadows. It gets through and removes everything. I use it twice per day: morning and night. It's especially important for me to use at night because I've ruined too many pillow cases with black residue that just won't wash out!
How do I use it? I usually use one of my large oval cotton pads from Primark and apply the remover directly to the pad. Then I swipe it across each eye separately. After I've wiped both eyes, I apply a little more on a q-tip and really get underneath the eye. Please just make sure to close your eyes. Even though the lovely eye doctors have approved this product, let's not get too crazy.
I personally feel like after a few swipes across my eyes, this remover gets a little soapy. You're not going to see suds but maybe a bubble or two! Nothing too crazy.
Bottom line? Great for sensitive peeps like myself, amazing for delicate areas, and not one bit oily so not clogging of pores or competing with your makeup. Will I purchase again? 100%
