On the rare occasions that I do wear makeup I always remove it before going to bed - a right goody, goody aren't I?
For me the makeup remover has to either be a cloth or a liquid with the consistency of water. I have tried various creams - thick and runny - and gels over the years but I have yet to find one that will do the job properly and leave my skin feeling really clean and toned. I always end up having to wash it off after I have finished so that my skin actually feels clean.
For the removal of eye makeup I obviously use something a bit different from the normal make up remover and the best that I have found is the one produced by Yves Rocher.
I either use Yves Rocher Gentle Eye Make Up Remover (review already posted) or Yves Rocher Express Cleanser For Sensitive Eyes With Cornflower.
Many years ago I used to order a lot of things from Yves Rocher mainly because they always had lots of special offers and I ended up trying a lot of their products some of which I still use today. The eye makeup remover is one such product as I have never found anything to beat it.
The price is currently just £4.90 for a bottle which contains 125ml of cleanser. The best way to purchase this is via the website at www.yves-rocher.co.uk. There are a few shops around the country - I have been in one in York - but they are very few and far between so mail order is probably your best bet.
Like the gentle eye makeup remover this one comes in a plastic bottle with a white plastic screw top - so, once the contents are all gone, the empty bottle goes in the recycling bag.
The bottle is simple and looks very classy with a picture of single cornflower on the front. The contents inside the bottle settle so that the bottom half of the liquid is white and the top half is a very pretty blue.
To use the cleanser I just have to give the bottle a quick shake to combine the two halves of the liquid. I then pour a small amount onto a cotton pad or cotton wool ball and gently wipe it across my eye lids. The liquid has the light, delicate fragrance of the cornflower which makes it a real pleasure to use.
All the eye makeup is removed easily and my eyes feel refreshed, soothed and clean. It will remove even waterproof makeup although I have sometimes used a second pad with a little more cleanser just to be certain that I have removed it all. That way I don't wake up the next morning looking like a panda and I don't have a pillowcase covered with makeup either!
I find that this cleanser is very gentle and never stings my eyes - it just does the job and does it well.
One of the main advantages for me - apart from the fact that it works so well of course - is the fact that this product is the consistency of water. This means that the skin on my eye lids is not left feeling greasy or uncomfortable in any way.
As I said earlier I don't often wear makeup so I don't need to use this very often, but a bottle of this cleanser will last for ages with no deterioration of the liquid.
In conclusion I would have to recommend this product without hesitation. It is a good price, especially when you consider how long it lasts me, it does the job exceptionally well, the fragrance is lovely, it is gentle on my skin and leaves it feeling refreshed and clean.
Come on - what more do you want?
