Up until a couple of years ago I never really thought about using eye make-up remover, I just used to use water or a face wipe. Then as a teenage I was getting panda eyes and mascara all over my pillow I decided it needed to change.
No7 make a wide variety of make-up removal products, and this just happens to be one of them I’ve had numerous bottles of this blue liquid, from the tiny bottles up to the big bottles and it’s safe to say now I’d never change.
Before this point I was using the Lancôme version and I found that to be quite oily on my eyes and it took a long time to get all the make-up off my eyes. However the No7 version, although it is slightly oily as I think all eye make-up removers are – it’s nowhere near as bad as the Lancôme version for making my face feel oily.
I use a flat cotton wool pad to put it on and then give my eyes a good rub, without getting it actually in my eye obviously – it doesn’t make too long to come off my eyes either, I only tend to use both sides of the folded over pad to get rid of it all. Then change to a new pad for the other eye – it leaves my eyes feeling quite refreshed as a result as well instead of greasy and my eye lashes really soft.
I tend to find that I finish one of the larger bottles within a few months, I never leave it over the recommended length of time that’s on the bottle – because I don’t want to risk my eyes. So in my opinion its good value for money as it does its job, and doesn’t give you oily eyes as a result.
I’ve never had any nasty reactions when I’ve accidentally got it in my eyes either, just cleaned off the make-up and I am done, it’s really quite quick so there’s no excuse for panda eyes!
In Boots the price for a 100ml bottle is £8.50 at the minute grab it when it’s on offer on 3 for 2 and you could be stocked up for a year!
I must admit that when it comes to removing my eye makeup, especially my mascara, I am a bit forgetful and it’s not something I do on a regular basis however when I do, this is one product that I use.
The product is part of the No 7 range so is exclusive to Boots; it is available online and in store but you can also pick up from places such as EBay and Amazon. A 100ml bottle costs around £8 but quite often Boots run their 3 for 2 promotions so it’s best to pick up then if you need some other things. I actually received this as part of a gift set a couple of years ago.
This comes in a small in height yet chunky see through plastic bottle which is topped with a pump action lid. To the front of the bottle is the product description in black and gold lettering.
The liquid is quite runny, but not as much as a facial toner. It is bright blue and has a really light fragrance to it. I couldn’t pick out any notes within the fragrance, but it is quite pleasant.
I find that the pump action lid is really easy to use, even one handed and a generous amount is also dispensed when the pump is depressed. To use, I give the bottle a good shake and then I simply apply a few squirts onto a cotton wool pad and gently sweep over my eyes. I was immediately impressed with how quickly this got to work, even on my waterproof mascara, from the first sweep of my eyes, the cotton wool pad quickly started to turn black. I must say, this did do exactly what it should and removed every last bit of makeup without too much effort or applying any pressure to my eyes.
I did find that the product was a little on a the greasy side and it did leave my eyes look a little ‘wet’ however I just give my face a little rinse after using and this seems to solve that problem. I really only use this product when I am away and I don’t want to end up leaving black marks on my pillow.
As with all No 7 products, this is hypo-allergenic so suitable for the most sensitive of skins, my skin can be a little temperamental however I haven’t experienced any problems using this.
This does a great job at doing what it should therefore I would recommend however the cleanser that I currently use does an excellent job at also removing eye makeup so I am not sure that I will repurchase. For that reason, this gets 4 out of 5 stars from me.
Upon receiving one of those wonderful £5 No7 products, I decided to spend it on this eye make-up remover. I've always found that the main problem is removing black or dark eyeliner or mascara, as some black bits always seem to remain and the following morning I wake up with puffy eyes.
The eye make up remover comes in a plastic bottle with lid underneath which it has a pump to get the liquid out. There are two parts to the liquid, blue liquid at the bottom and clear liquid (which looks like it has a hint of blue in it) at the top, and you have to shake the bottle for the two parts to mix before you use it. When it has mixed all the liquid is blue, when you put the bottle down, the two liquids separate within seconds, so you have to shake it each time you use it.
The remover smells like a lot of the No7 moisturisers, and in fact other moisturisers that are not fragranced, but still have that cream smell to it. Once applied to tissue or a piece of cotton wool, there is a very very mild chemical smell to it.
When using it apply the liquid to a piece of cotton wool, you will see blue/clear liquid on the wool, and then wipe away the make-upped area gently...at least this is what the instructions say. Unfortunately I found gently didn't really do the trick, particularly with removing the eyeliner. I found myself pressing down on my eye lids in an attempt to remove eyeliner. However it does work better on removing eye shadow.
As I had to use more and more remover to remove the make up I found it left the area around my eyes very shiny for about ten minutes before the skin completely absorbed it. Once the remover was full absorbed, my skin felt soft enough that it didn't require extra moisturiser and it did not irritate my usually sensitive skin, so that was a plus, but then this is cancelled out by the fact that it left the edges of the lids of my eyes feeling oily, and this was not a good feeling as my eyes were under the fear of it seeping in.
Overall this was a disappointing product from the No7 range, definitely not worth the money. You would have better luck using water to remove the make up.
Let me begin by saying that I don't wear a lot of eye make up. I do however,like to use eye liner and mascara ,especially if I am going out. I always remove make up before going to bed and therefore needed a product that would remove my eye make up without causing irritation to my ultra sensitive eye area. I am a big fan of the Boots no 7 range,as I think it is as good as many of the more expensive brands I have experienced.
Boots no 7 cleanse and care eye make up remover comes in a clear plastic bottle with screw top lid. The liquid inside is 2-tone blue and looks quite pretty! The instructions on the bottle tell you to shake the bottle well before using .Here is the main problem; once the bottle has had a good shake and the lid is unscrewed it is difficult to pour the small about that is needed onto a cotton wool pad. It would have been so much better if Boots had used a pump action bottle that would have enabled me to control how much liquid I removed!
Although it is awkward to use, I do really like this eye make up remover. It is quite oily and you really only need a very small amount to effectively remove all traces of eye make up,including waterproof mascara. I find that a few gentle wipes are that that is needed to leave my eyes make up free. I have really sensitive eyes and this product has caused me no irritation. It is suitable for all skin types and is fragrance free. Boots claims that this product will not only remove eye make up,but will also condition the eye area. I would agree that it leaves my eye area feeling soft and with no dry patches; something I am prone to.
Overall I would recommend this eye make up remover as it does exactly what it claims. However I am not a fan of the awkward bottle design! This eye make up remover is available from Boots both on-line and in stores. It is currently part of a 3 for 2 promotion. A 100 ml bottle will set you back £8.50.
Finding a eye make up remover that really works was proving difficult for me. I find some are to harsh, some you have to scrub and scrub to remove anything! However Boots No7 Eye Make Up Remover is not like this at all.
Only a small amount of liquid is needed, just apply to a cotton pad, tissue or cotton wool. Just one wipe across the lid will remove a good amount of make up. If you dont tend to wear too much make up on the eyes i.e just mascara or eyeliner then just one or two wipes one each eye should remove all traces of make up. Personally I do like to wear a lot of eye make up such as primers, eyeshadows, mascara, eyeliners etc. However this did not prove to be a problem for this product, three to four wipes on each eye removes every scrap of make up I have on my eyes. This compared to most other eye make up removers I have used is amazing!
Now, I do sometimes have a problem with sensitive eyes and lots of products can cause my eyes to flare up. However I had no problems at all, I found the product easy and comfortable to use.
I'm usually unsure about using certain products on my eye area as I've previously had bad experiences when it comes to make up removers, either I've had red and inflamed eyes that won't stop watering or they simply just don't work at all and I'm left scrubbing and rubbing my eyes to get it all off!
I quite often pass up the opportunity to purchase make up removers and opt for the baby wipe method; it's cheap, it's easy and it's gentle on your skin. However there's always that little trace of mascara and eye liner that seem to linger on your eyes despite the fact your going over and over your eyes trying to have a fresh and clean face.
I came across this little number when I received some free samples a couple of years ago; I had a little bottle that measured approximately 30ml so I could try it out once or twice and I was impressed. Later I got my hands on a no 7 voucher at boots, which they seem to always have available when you've spent over a certain amount of money, so I thought it was an appropriate time to purchase the make up remover in it's full size of 100ml.
It is suitable for all skin types and is great on sensitive skin; I know this because I don't have great tolerance with a lot of skin care products and have experienced a number of bad reactions over the years but have no complaints in regards to this particular one. It's a nice blue colour liquid that needs to be shaken before use, and then applied onto a cotton wool pad - only one or two squirts per pad should suffice - which is easy to do as it is a pump applicator so there's no annoying unscrewing and dabbing much like you would with something like nail varnish remover.
It is also fragrance free so there's no pungent smells that leaves your face smelling funky, it's a nice odourless smell that isn't at all noticeable after application. The only down side to this make up remover is that it has an oily consistency that, if you're anything like me and hate the oily feeling on your skin, you may want to get an extra cotton wool pad and wipe off any excess as it doesn't exactly feel fabulous if left lingering on your eye lids.
When using this I have never had to put excess pressure on the eye area or rub to a degree where it could irritate my eyes as it only needs a few gentle wipes to do it's job effectively and not damage or aggravate your eyes, so it's gentle and works brilliantly - even removes waterproof mascara and heavy amounts of eye shadow.
It has been a while since I purchased this as it lasts an extremely long time so it is great value for money, you can find it on line at boots.com or you can purchase it in any boots store that has their specialised no 7 make up range (most larger stores do, but often smaller stores lack a couple of items). It costs £7.75
or 775 points on your advantage card, you can also collect 28 points when you purchase this.
I usually save my Boots advantage card points for a treat for myself in the post Christmas sales but when the No 7 hat box came up as an offer of the week and half price I decided to treat myself to it as I wanted to get myself in to a good skin care routine. One of the items in the box was No 7 cleanse and care eye make up remover.
The product comes in a clear bottle with a tall lid. Through the bottle you can see the blue liquid of the eye make up remover which is something that I like as you can always see how much you have left and so hopefully not run out. The bottle features a simple black and gold lettering which really compliment each other and serve the purpose of making the product look quite expensive I think. The bottle tells us that this hypo allergenic eye make up remover will "wipe away every trace of make up even waterproof mascara" and that it is fragrance free and even suitable for sensitive eyes.
Now I will hold my hands up and say that I can be quite lazy when it comes to taking my make up off properly because I find that as a busy single mum reaching for a wipe is much easier than the whole cleanse, tone and moisturise malarkey! This said I am becoming increasingly aware of my skin and in particular damage around my eye area and so I do try and not always use wipes these days. The No 7 cleanse and care eye make up remover offered me a different option.
When you take off the lid from the bottle you will reveal a pump through which the liquid is dispensed. I do think this is quite a good idea to avoid spillages and wastage of the product but you do need to press the pump a few times you get a decent amount of the product on to your cotton wool ball. I have found that you do need more than one pump on the cotton wool for it to work effectively.
Once you have some cleanse and care eye make up remover on your cotton wool ball you simply need to wipe it over your eye, gently wiping as you go. Now I have to say I do wear a lot of eye make up with eye liner featuring at least half of the week and eye shadow and mascara every day and so I was dubious how the product would work. I was so surprised when I discovered that it made pretty light work of my eye make up without me having to drag at my eyes as it just seemed to lift it quite easily. The product does feel ever so slightly greasy on the eyes but in comparison to some others I have tried I can confirm that this is one of the lesser ones and yet it is high performing and so one I would be happy to keep on using.
A 100ml of No 7 cleanse and care eye make up remover costs £7.75 from Boots and this is my only real issue with the product because you only have six months in which to use the bottle and as I do still use wipes sometimes I can see that I will end up with a lot of wastage. Should you think you would use this product every night though I can recommend it as a gentle yet very effective eye make up remover.
Thank you for reading my review!
to be fair it is the only eye make up remover product i have ever tried so i cant really compare to other products. I have found though that this product works 100% as expected. It do find it a little greasy so i like to use my toner to sweep over afterwards but maybe thats just me.
I put a few drops onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over each eye, it works quickly and easily and also removed waterproof mascara. a little goes a long way and the bottles are quite big so well worth the money.
Boots No7 often have 3 for 2 offers on or you can use one of those £5 off vouchers to save money when buying this product.
I would recommend this item so those needing a make up remover. and i like the little pump lid so you dont end up using too much or spilling it.
This is one of No7's best products. The Cleanse and Care Eye Make-up Remover is fantastic. I have been using it for years and wouldn't be without it now.
It come in a clear 100ml bottle with a pull off lid and the liquid inside is blue. A pump action nozzle gets the liquid from the bottle onto a cotton wool bud. Before you use it it has to be shaken as when not in use the liquid seperates into a dark blue section at the bottom and lighter blue one on top. Shaking mixes it all up and prepares it for use. One squeeze of the nozzle is enough liquid to do one eye, it could probably do two but I don't like to push it.
There is a slight anti-septic sort of smell to this liquid, even though it says fragrance free on the bottle, but don't let this put you off, it is very slight. I also find the eye make-up remover to be slight greasy, but I use it just before I go to bed and all residual grease has long soaked in by the time I wake up, moisturising the skin around my eyes in the process. Bargain!
So, how well does it work? Very very well is the answer. I use cleaner and toner and think I've got all my eye make up off. No! Applying this Eye make-up remover is quite literally an eye opener. The amount of black mascara that comes off with just one sweep over your eyes is unbelievable. You can even go a day with no make-up on, use this again, and more will be removed. It is particularly good at removing mascara and eyeliner from under your eyes as well. If you happen to get a bit in your eye (not recommended) it doesn't sting. It doesn't just remove mascara and eyeliner, but also any trace of eye shadow your cleanser hasn't already got off.
The info on the back of the bottle says it is ophthalmologist tested (believe me, it says that, cos I couldn't have spelt it without looking!) and is suitable for sensitive eyes.
A 100ml bottle goes a long way and although I use this regularly, can easily make it last six months. So at only £7.75 a bottle it would be cheap at twice the price.
I was so glad I did not have to pay £6.50 for a 200ml bottle of this No7 product as I had a 30ml one included in a gift box at Christmas so therefore had the opportunity to try it for free.
The packaging looks good with the gold logo and pearlescent/ iridescent top but I'm afraid I am not so keen on the liquid inside which,in my opinion is far too oily.It claims to remove all trace of eye make-up plus condition the eyelashes and is hypoallergenic.
There are no ingredients listed on my bottle ( a little worrying, but hey - I trust Boots' products)however, I do like to have an idea of what I will be using on my face especially the eye area so I think no 7 should make this clear to users.
The liquid comprises 2 parts in the bottle and you are advised to shake the contents well before pouring a little onto a make-up pad or cotton wool ball and gently massaging over the eye area. I must admit it does do a great job - I wear Mally eye-liner and mascara which is guaranteed to last all day without budging and it removes this black with only a small amount of product and in double-quick time plus there is no smell (unlike some removers which stink!)
The only thing I don't like is the amount of oil that gets left behind however hard I shake the bottle. Also the first few times I used it I found I had puffy eyes in the morning. I now dampen a make-up pad with warm water and, after having removed the eye make up, remove the excess oil from my lids and lashes and this works fine for me now.
On balance I think it is a good price, certainly cheaper than some I have used. I like the way it has no smell and that a little goes a long way. It definitely makes light work of removing heavy eye make up and the product looks attractive.
Now I have found that taking off the excess oil has made all the difference I will probably buy some when this runs out but will have to knock a star off for the oiliness and the lack of ingredients provided on the product.
I received the bottle of Cleanse and Care eye make up remover in a pack which also included the cleanser and toner. I used it before cleansing and toning, focusing mainly on removing stubborn mascara.
The product details --> The liquid is blue, in a soft plastic packaging of 100ml. It contains the no7 details of the product on the front, and is a pump dispenser. It should be shaken up, especially is it has been left to settle. It lasts about 6 months, but I have used it over this for about 2 months and it has been absolutely fine. The consistency is very thin and runny, also a little bit greasy at times, but other than that a great product. It is suitable for all skin types too.
The cost --> It is £6.75 for 100ml, and if you have an advantage card you get your points. You can receive this with a 3 for 2 voucher and also get £5 off if you have a voucher - something that is released a few times a year.
I don't have to use much of the solution just a few pumps down and it dispensers enough to wipe away your make up. Because it is No 7 it is kind to your skin, being hypo-allergenic.
Sometimes mascara takes a bit of extra scrubbing to get off, but it does leave your skin feeling soft. However, I stopped using this product as much because the boots facial wipes were handier to use and carry about. I still have a bottle of it though, and time to time when I want to cleanse tone and moisturise (give myself a facial) I will use this luxurious product. I would recommend the product to a friend if they wanted to spend a little more money on a decent eye make up remover, simply because of the softness it gives and the fact it does remove your eye make up so you don't have panda eyes!
I have never really been that huge a fan of No7 products. I find them quite over priced, and for the price you pay not that effective. I would never have tried this product off my own back, but I received it in a box set for Christmas. It was very well presented and a cute looking set.
The make up remover comes in a shorter bottle that the other cleanser and toners. It is 100ml of blue liquid. It has a push down lid which spouts a small, controlled amount of material out. It is not difficult to use and does not spurt everywhere, meaning you end up wasting some and making your bathroom dirty!
You only need a tiny bit on the cotton wool to do the job, I probably use two cotton wool balls to do both my eyes and my face, and I don't have to have the balls drenched in the remover to work.
The remover feels nice and soft on my skin, it doesn't make it greasy, or make my eyes sting at all. It easily removed my make up without me having to scrub and therefore make my eyes sore. I felt very clean afterwards and for very little effort.
At £7.75 for 100ml it really is quite pricey. You can often pick it up on a 3 for 2 offer, or in sets which makes it cheaper. Often boots do a £5 off No7 voucher, which would again make this cheaper, but you have to spend money in the first place to get the voucher.
Overall this is a fantastic make up remover, which would get 5 stars if it wasn't for the price. Look out for special offers to pick this gem of a product up.
Along with a few other bits I received this in a recent promotion as a trial size sample.
The packaging for this eye make up remover is very similar to that of other products in the same range, the cleanser and toner for example. It comes in a stand up bottle which is semi-opaque. The No7 logo is featured in gold on the front of the bottle along with the name and basic information in modern black lettering. Further information can be found on the back of the bottle in a similar font. The product itself is visible through the container and is a vibrant blue colour. This means it stands out on the shelf, catching your eye, and also looks quite funky on your dressing table (it's also easy to spot and reach for after a heavy night out!!). The top of the bottle unscrews and the remover is dispensed through a tiny hole allowing you to use as much or as little as you need with no mess.
Through the bottle you can see that the eye make-up remover is in two layers, assuming the bottle hasn't been disturbed recently. I assume the bottom layer is water based and the top oil based on account of the manner in which they seperate out. It's therefore essential to give the bottle a really good shake before you use it in order to get equal proportions of both layers and a sample of the product that works as well as it should. The bottle requires a gentle squeeze to dispense the remover and you can see on a cotton wool pad that it's quite oily.
I tend to hold a cotton wool pad over my (closed) eyelid for a few seconds before gently wiping it across the lid to remove my make-up. The result is usually pleasing and day eye make-up only usually requires two swipes across for all traces of eyeshadow to have disappeared. I tend the hold the pad under my eyelashes to remove this - again it takes little effort for it to be removed. Waterproof make-up is removed easily and heavier night-time make-up only requires a little extra effort. Not amazing performance but nothing to complain about either.
After using this remover I find it leaves my eye area a little greasy. Now it's not nearly as bad as some eye make-up removers I've used (clinique, for example, is particularly bad) but it's worth mentioning. I assume that it's this oilyness that means waterproof make-up comes off easily. It's not something that would stop me buying the product and it seems to moisturise my eye area quite well so I personally have no objections! Just something to be aware of if you're using the remover for touch ups etc as it might require tissuing off before you reapply make-up.
Overall a good eye make-up remover that doesn't cost a fortune. Nothing to really shout about but then it is only make-up remover!
I'm one of those girls who is guilty of hoarding boxes and boxes of half used toiletries, only to buy new ones and never get around to using the ones I already have. I recently made a promise to myself to use up the products I already own, in the hope that I might by chance come across a product that I actually love. Not only was I excited about trying out a number of new products in the hope of discovering something wonderful, but I was also excited at the prospect of saving money and clearing some storage space!
No. 7 is a brand that I have used for a long time. My mum and Nan have always been big fans, and so I got into the brand by using their No. 7 goodies over the years, much to their delight! I found this particular eye make up remover around 2 months ago, and decided to try it out. I have the travel size bottle of the product (30ml), but the normal sized 100ml bottle is available from Boots for £7.75.
The eye make up remover comes in a small but tall bottle, which is almost cylindrical in shape. The No. 7 name is printed on the front of the bottle, along with the name of the product. Further information about the product and instructions for use are printed on the reverse side of the bottle. The bottle is translucent, but appears to be a pale blue due to the colouring of the liquid.
The product itself has a thin consistency, not dissimilar to that of water. It is a pale to mid blue in colour. The eye make up remover should be dispensed by holding the bottle upside down, and applying it to either a cotton wool ball or a cotton wool pad. The directions for use on the bottle recommend that you sweep the cotton wool over the closed eyes to 'remove even waterproof mascara.'
I wear minimal eye make up, usually just mascara and a little pencil eyeliner, and so I would expect any good remover product to remove all traces of the eye make up without much effort. This eye make up remover feels very cool on the eyes, and appears to instantly refresh them. The product claims to condition the skin and indeed it does leave the skin around the eyes soft and smooth. However, with regards to actually removing eye make up, it really doesn't stand out to me. I find that I have to use quite a lot of this eye make up remover to get rid of my mascara, and in turn I also have to use a lot of cotton wool. A little of this product doesn't really seem to make much difference with regards to removing make up from the eye, and one squirt of the bottle definitely isn't enough. However, to be completely pedantic, two squirts of the bottle leave too much on the cotton wool pad, and in turn, I tend to end up with the product in my eye. With this product, I find that I have to really rub at my eyes to remove traces of mascara, which not only results in my eyes becoming irritated, but on occasion leads to my eyelashes falling out.
To conclude, I'm not at all a fan of this product. It has quite a high price tag in comparison to other eye make up removers on the market, and it isn't very good value for money. A lot of eye make up remover is needed to remove even the slightest bit of mascara, and so the product runs out very quickly. The one plus of this eye make up remover is that it is gentle and so perfect for sensitive skin, and so if you wanted to use this product simply to remove eye shadow, it'd be fine. It just doesn't work particularly well at removing mascara from the eyelashes!
No 7 Cleanse and Care Eye make-up Remover, 100 ml
£7.50 (which will earn you 28 advantage card points worth 28p)
I love the No 7 range and have tried most of their products. I don't tend to buy make-up remover as I find that a lot of them can be quite harsh so tend to use skin wipes instead. I came across this in one of the No 7 'goody bags' that they give you when you spend over a certain amount on their products. I received a 30 ml bottle, which is a fair amount as I've found that it lasts for AGES!
No 7 Cleanse and Care Eye Make-up Remover is suitable for all skin types. It is bright blue in colour which, although it looks lovely, is slightly disturbing as it gives me the impression that it is a harsh, chemical laden product. Thankfully this is not the case. It is a very gentle product; it is hypo-allergenic and is even suitable for those with sensitive eyes.
To use, you simply wipe it over your eyes with a cotton wool pad. I find that only the smallest amount of product is needed, and the product will quickly and easily remove all traces of make-up. Just a few seconds will remove standard mascara, it will only take a few seconds longer to remove thougher mascara types, such as water-proof. It easily sweeps away eye shadow, and even removes eyeliner with ease.
I am very impressed with the speed of this product; I have an eyeliner that is a real struggle to remove, it is beautiful but I can't wear it often as you can rub your eyes until they're sore yet still not remove all of it. It is a two day job to get it off (!), so I think that this is the ultimate test for this make-up remover.
I am pleased to report that it removes almost all traces within three or so minutes. It does take a lot longer for this one, but it still works a lot quicker than other methods.
The make-up remover works quickly, easily, and is gentle on the skin. It leaves my eyes feeling clean and clear; my skin also feels quite soft and is not dry or taut as it can get with other products.
All in all - I am really happy with this product and will continue to buy it when my sample runs out. Yes, £7.50 may be a lot of money for a make-up remover, but it really is a great product, and a little goes a long way so it will actually work out to be quite good value.
My 30 ml sample has lasted two months so far (with around twice weekly use), and I still have a quarter left, so imagine how long 100 ml will last!
If you like the sound of it, get in quick as Boots are currently giving away one of their famous 'goody bags' when you spend over £22; and don't forget your advantage card as the points you make are the equivalent of a 4% discount.
And unlike most other beauty/cosmetics companies, if you are at all unhappy with any No7 product you can return it for a full refund, as long as you have your receipt.
