Olay Eye Make Up Remover
Advantages: Removes eye make up in a gentle and effective way
I wear quite a lot of make up and usually the facial washes and wipes that I buy manage to remove my make up effectively but because I wear so much eye make up, sometimes a bit of it is left behind. I have tried a few different eye make up removers and been impressed with some of them but when I saw the Eye Make Up Remover by Olay I thought it was worth trying.
What does the product do?
The product is described as being a caring eye make up remove that lifts away all eye make up, including waterproof eye make up, in a delicate and gentle way. It promises to leave the eye area feeling clean, refreshed and beautiful. The product is fragrance and colour free and it has been dermatologically tested.
How do you use the product?
The product needs to be dispensed onto the fingertips and then you need to massage a small amount onto the eyelids and eyelashes while your eyes are closed, using a very gentle circular motion so that you don't cause any wrinkles. You then rub the product away with a cotton pad and with it should go your eye make up and you continue the steps until the cotton pads come away clean. You can then carry on with your usual skin regime.
Packaging and Price
The product is contained within a thick white plastic bottle which has some extra information on it in blue writing. It has a blue flip top lid which is easy to open and close even when you have some of the product on your fingertips. It can stand on the lid so it looks neat and tidy in your bathroom. The products costs around £3 for 100ml and it can be bought from department stores such as Boots, large supermarkets and also from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product doesn't really have a smell at all. It has a hint of creaminess and smells but it's not really noticable at all. The cream is pure white and the cleanser is really quite thick, especially compared with some of the others that I have used. The product feels so comfortable and gentle on the skin and it doesn't sting the eye at all. As the consistency is so thick, it is really easy to apply the product to the delicate skin without dragging or pulling the skin around the delicate eye area. It hasn't caused any irritations on my sensitive skin or caused me to develop any blemishes.
As you rub the product onto the eye area, you can already see the make up being loosened and wiped away. A lot comes away on the cotton pads and although it takes a few applications of the product, all of my make up is removed easily and quickly. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated, without making it feel greasy or unclean. It removes every last bit of the eye make up even the waterproof products that I wear... And I wear a lot!
This is a very good gentle eye make up remover which completely cleans the eye area in a quick and easy way. It leaves the skin soft and clean, and with the price in consideration, you will find it hard to find a more effective and gentle product that performs as well.
