“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Eye Makeup Remover / Subcategory: Pads / Suitable for: Eye „
I bought these for the 1st time about 3 weeks ago. I had been using Asda's version of these but I had noticed the price of Asda's ones creeping up over time and they are now about £1.80 I think at the last time. I am still a bit lazy though and always buy wipes instead of a bottle and pads. So even though the price was more expensive I was still buying them. However I forgot to buy them 1 time and ended up nipping up to Sainsbury's which is closer to where I stay. Didn't see the point in battling through traffic to get such a thing. I thought if Sainsbury's didn't have any then it was handy to have Boots right next door.
These come in a smple little pack and the 30 wipes cost me £1.49. The packaging looks just the same as any pack that I have bought. A small pack and you rip the pack open on the front to get the pads out. The wipes stack 1 on top of each other and they are large enough to use 1 between both eyes. The wipes are textured on 1 side and smooth on the other. The seem to be damp enough to the touch and even when you are nearly all the way through the pack the last wipes are as damp as when you 1st opened the pack.
There isn't much scent to these. On the pack it doesn't say that they are fragrance free but they just smell like a kind of water-y Cucumber kind of scent. Fine for me anyway. These wipe away my Make up no problem and don't irritate my eyes.
To be fair there isn't really anything that there is to say about such a product is their? These work well and I will probably keep buying these as they are better priced than my other ones.
Wipe the day away.
I bought this a while ago but decided to wait until I'd finished the packet to review them as sometimes my skin seems fine with a product then after say a week of use, I have a bad reaction.
There are 30 pads in a packet and so I have used them for 30 days in a row and my skin is still fine :)
How it looks
The eye make up remover pads are in a tiny packet the same shape and style as facial cleansing wipes. Its cute!
This plastic packaging is white with a pale turquoise and grey stripe across the top, above this is the writing 'Skin Therapy' and underneath this in smaller writing 'Sensitive skin, refresh'. All of this is in the same turquoise and grey colour scheme. It looks classy and nowhere on the front of the packet does it mention Sainsburys.
Underneath the coloured stripes it tells you everything you need to know about them; that the packet contains 30 eye make up remover pads, that they ease away make-up including waterproof mascara and then at the bottom of the front of the packet in tiny black letters I am told all the above info again in one paragraph.
Using the pads
The packet has a peel back sticky label in the middle covering a hole through which you remove the pads, this seals nicely again afterwards so the make-up remover pads stay damp and useable.
I bought them last December meaning to take them to Paris with me but forgot and only found them again last month, they were still well within their expiry date- 12/10.
So I pulled out a pad, easy enough to do without removing too many. the pads are little squares about 3 inch by 3 inch with rounded corners. They have a texture on them which I guess helps to remove your make-up.
The directions for use just tell you to use them as required as its quite self explanatory what to do with them!
You simply wipe them across your closed eyes a few times, you can see your make-up being wiped off onto the white pad so you know they're working well.
I use one side for each eye so find that one works well for both eyes, if i'd been out on a night and was wearing more than just my usual eye liner and mascara I ended up using one per eye. I like glittery liquid liner when I go out but it usually seems hard to remove, these make light work of it! The pads don't smudge your make-up all over either, they just remove it.
I have sensitive skin and my eyelids especially seem to suffer with other make-up removers except my trusty No7! These have caused no reaction at all with my skin on my eyelids, they don't sting or anything.
I think they cost me 99p but that was on a half price offer, the RRP is £1.99 but i've just looked on Mysupermarket.co.uk and they are on offer on '2 for 1' at the minute so I'm going to stock up.
99p a month for your make-up remover is great value!
The small packet makes them ideal to take on holiday with you, i'll take some on my summer holidays.
Highly recommended, you wouldn't know they were a Sainsburys product.
Eye make up removing products are incredibly important to me. Ever since I once (in a drunken state) removed the majority of my make up with regular cleanser and toner but didn't quite remover my eyeliner from in between my eye lashes and left bits of clumpy mascara hanging precariously off my eye lashes and ended up with a terrible eye infection where my eye went puffy and the rims went almost inside out! Since then I'm really funny about my make up removing routine and know that due to the amount of eye make I use I do need something inparticular to remove it.
I'll pretty much use any eye make up removers but do prefer liquids to creams and lotions and wipes (for if I'm drunk and ease of use lol).
These, I spotted in Sainsburys at 99p instead of £1.59 and I needed some so obviously I bought them!
Small white plastic oblong shaped packet with a clear label that you pull to get a pad out of and it reseals brilliantly when you've done. On the front in mint green and black writing I'm told they are SkinTherapy (Sensitive Skin, Refresh), 30 Eye Make-Up Remover Pads that 'ease away make-up & waterproof mascara'. On the back (all in black writing) Im given a warning, contact details for Sainsbury's (shops own product), ingredients are listed, and I'm told they are suitable for sensitive skin, dermatologically tested and fragrance free. Finally there is expiry date stamped on, I'm told to bin it not flush it after use and there is a bar-code on there. Simple, small packaging and no directions for use are given, but hey we can let that off every woman should know how to use an eye make up remover after-all lol.
Well you pull one out of the packet and you are met by a white, thin, slightly moist but none fragranced roundish wipe. It has little textured squares all over it on one side and is smooth on the other and all you do is wipe over your made up eyes. I always use the textured side. They feel great to use, are smooth and moist enough without being drippy or messy and really are very strong (they don't tear) and lift off all make up off the eyes easily. If you have a lot of make up, yes you do need more than on wipe and as I wear eyeliner and glittery liquid eyeliner and lots of waterproof mascara I do tend to find I need a couple of pads per eye.
Quick and easy to use I really trust these. I don't have to drag the pad or scrub my delicate eye area it really just takes gentle wiping and a little patience. Then I move on to using cleanser and toner or a make up removing wipe to remove all other make-up off my face.
These are just great. I like the quality of them and the fact they are so simple to use and leave my eyes feeling refreshed and clean! They really are a big bargain!
