Kind To Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-up Remover Cream
I always remove eye make up with eye make up remover and don't tend to like to leave it to chance with normal cleanser.
This one appealed because I usually like the Simple range and I liked the fact that it is advertised as being gentle on the delicate eye area skin. The bottle tells me that it is a perfect blend of ingredients to effectively remove even waterproof mascara and can even be used on sensitive skin. I also liked the fact that it is a cream which seems as though it will be very gentle and nourishing.
As with most products, this claims to have a special blend of ingredients; in this case it's a blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, Glycerin and Allantoin, which will all help to gently cleanse and moisturise the eye area. Since this is a Simple product, as expected, it contains no perfume no colouring and no unnecessary ingredients or chemicals so it wont damage skin. It is also dermatologically tested and approved.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The eye make up remover comes in a 100ml plastic bottle with a screw on and screw back on lid. It stands on its head as it were so there should always be plenty of the product ready to come out of the bottle. All of the ingredients information and instructions are on the back of the bottle.
When I open the lid there is a small dispenser which when the bottle is given a squeeze allows a small amount of the product to be dispensed. The eye make up remover itself is white and creamy and as expected odourless and colourless.
USING THE PRODUCT...
For best results it is recommended that the product is applied to cotton wool and then wiped gently across the eyes. I find that because it is quite creamy, not a lot of the product is needed but it does require several wipes to remove eye liner and water proof mascara.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The product costs £3.99 for 100ml and is widely available from chemists and supermarkets.
It is a nice gentle product which has not caused any adverse effects to my skin, and which does remove eye make up effectively after several wipes to the eyes.
I did think that because the bottle sits upside down there would be no problem getting the product out. This has not proved to be so. About half way down the bottle, it seemed that the small hole to dispense the product was too thin for the thick cream, and it seemed to get blocked. I had to take out this part of the bottle so that what I was left with was a large hole to get the cream out. This still meant that it took a lot of shaking to get the stuff out, so I imagine I have not used anywhere near all of the product.
The advantages are that it is gentle and reasonably effective but unfortunately there is a lot of waste.
Not the best but if the bottle was changed then much better. As a cream recommended but not the packaging
Thanks for reading
