Olay Eye Make Up Remover
Advantages: Lightweight and gets rid of make up easily
When it comes to removing my make up I tend to take it very seriously. I will spend time removing my make up each night to ensure that my skin can breath and my pores don't become blocked. I vary the products I use for my skin care regime and I am not brand loyal so I tend to buy whatever is on offer although I do prefer a few brands I am quite happy to mix the products with various brands.
One eye make up remover I bought earlier in the year was the Olay Essentials Eye Make Up Remover and I bought it not only because I find Olay products tend to be quite decent but it was also reduced by 50% making it less than £1.50 which I thought was incredibly good value. Olay is a very well known brand and have a variety of product ranges but this eye make up remover is from their Essentials range.
== The Eye Make Up Remover ==
The Essentials range is probably classed as Olay's budget range compared to their other skincare ranges they have to offer. The Essentials Eye Make Up Remover is a cream which is specifically designed to be incredibly delicate and gentle around the eye area but strong enough to remove even waterproof make up. Ideal for those with sensitive skin as it is perfume and colour free.
== Packaging ==
The eye make up remover comes in a colourful blue/black/pink coloured tube which matches a few of the other products in the Essentials range. On the front there is the Olay logo together with the product name and on the back there is information about the remover, how to use it, ingredients list as well as the contact information - all pretty standard stuff!
== In Use ==
The eye make up remover cream is pure white in colour and as stated above it doesn't have a fragrance to it at all which for me at the moment is ideal as I am suffering with sensitive skin on my face and generally anything perfumed can aggravate it. The cream has a decent consistency which is easily squeezed out of the tube.
To use I simply apply a small amount (about the size of a 5p coin) gently spread it out slightly on a cotton wool pad with my finger and then apply to the eyelid rub the make up off gently. I find that the amount of the cream is just enough to remove my mascara (which isn't waterproof) as well as my eyeshadow and eyeliner with no problems although depending on the colour of the eyeshadow I do sometimes use another cotton wool pad with a bit more cream just to ensure that I have got rid of all the make up.
I find that the cream itself isn't oily or greasy and is incredibly lightweight so as soon as it is wiped away from removing the make up it is incredibly absorbed into the skin and doesn't leave a horrible sticky film on the skin. I really do like this eye make up remover and I do prefer the cream version over a liquid remover as I find it is much more gentle on the skin and my skin has been left moisturised instead of being irritated and red.
== Overall ==
I really like this eye make up remover as it is in my opinion a lot gentler on the skin than a liquid remover and I find it much more nourishing. Despite not being made specifically for dry/sensitive skin I find that it looks after the area around my eyes without any problems or irritation and it removes my eye make up with no problems whatsoever. If wanting an eye make up remover than this is definitely one to be tried. 5 stars from me.
