“ Brand: Ahava / Type: Eye Makeup Remover / Suitable for: Eye / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
My bank balance does not allow me normally to buy the Ahava products. I love the Dead Sea salts and how they have been mixed into the Ahava beauty products.
I was fortunate enough in my early twenties to spend a few months travelling and friends and I spent a good deal of time in Israel. I stupidly shaved my legs the night before visiting the Dead Sea (ouch!) but all the same it was an amazing experience. When we were there I got some lotions and potions which I used so sparingly it was verging on ridiculous!
Now years later when I wonder through Debenhams or TKMaxx and see some of the Ahava products it reminds me of those days. I bit of nostalgia and love for the product. Honestly I normally look and then keep going as I just can't justify the price tag. Now and again in TKMAXX you can find some good deals but they aren't always in stock. I have previously bought certain bits on the internet.
For my last birthday my wonderful other half found me some of the hair shampoo and conditioners which are lovely and he also managed to find me a little packet of face wash, toner and eye make up remover.
The eye make up remover details:
Ophtalmologically tested; hypoallergenic. Just incase you are like me and don't know what Ophtalmologic means ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophthalmology
The bottle I got in my pack was 50ml but I have found a larger one on the internet. 250ml and selling for £16 (ish).
Normally I don't wear much make up but I have found that when I do I end up having to scrub quite hard to get it off. Especially eye make up. When I wear eye make up I always wear waterproof and this makes it harder to get off.
I went to a wedding a few weeks ago I wore mascara and eye liner. I got home, put the kids to bed and started on my routine of removing the mask. I noticed the Ahava pack in the corner of the bathroom and though why not give it a go. I got the eye make up remover out and squirted some of the clear liquid onto a cotton ball. I get eczema on my eye lids so I tend to try and be gentle with that skin so I only dabbed and lightly rubbed along the area around my eyes. The remover almost felt like a toner. It was cool and refreshing with a Dead Sea fresh scent. I raised my head and looked into the mirror to see a racoon looking back at me! I had such high hopes and yet it would seem this stuff was the same as anything else I have tried (don't tell my other half!). I chucked the cotton ball and used the face wash. I gave my face a little scrub and the racoon finally left the building.
Quite unfortunate as it wasn't as brilliant as the lotions.
