Nivea? L’Oreal? Garnier? Olay?
Micellar Water? Liquid? Wipes?
Oh! It’s such a puzzle! These days the makeup and cosmetic industry toss so many options at you, you often get confused and take much time to decide! Every now and then you hop in and hop out various choices and then come to the final selections. Does this happen to you? It occurs to me always! (Face palm!)
This time I was at Superdrug for a simple product – Eye makeup remover. As I fancy loads of eye makeup, I am always in a constant hunt for good eyeliner, kohls and mascaras and not to forget eye makeup remover which I require the most every day. And the removal process is usually longer, annoying and boring.
Since I used Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover earlier, I wanted to buy the same product but so many options available for a simple product left me perplexed big time. Anyway after checking a few products, I chose Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup remover (the properties are little too close to Nivea). While we wear makeup through the day, it is vital to take care of our eyes during the end of the day for our skin to cool, breathe and relax. And thankfully, this product doesn’t dishearten. So, here is the review, read on…
Price: £3.49 for 125 ml.
A two-phased double action formula to quickly and effectively remove make-up
• Efficiently removed eye make-up, even waterproof mascara, whilst leaving no greasy feel or residue.
• Protects eyelashes, leaving them feeling cleansed and cared for.
• Enriched with Arginine and ophthalmologically tested.
Shake well before applying and you will notice a foamy solution; apply it to a cotton pad and gently cleanse the eye area. Though it comes in oil phase, it doesn’t leave your skin greasy! The product is formulated and tested for the sensitive eye area and is also suitable for the very sensitive skin.
My Experience with Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover:
Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup remover is a two phased double action formula to efficiently remove all the makeup protecting eyelashes without any rubbing. It’s quite gentle which is suitable for sensitive skin as well. The product is enriched with naturally derived ‘Arginine’ which leaves a protective layer on your eyelashes. The oil phase comes in a light purple liquid and the water phase clearly is in a neutral shade.
Garnier offers many products in their eye makeup remover range; from 2-in-1 Eye & Face Makeup remover, Clean & Fresh Extra Gentle to makeup remover purifying gel; but the 2 in 1 package caught my attention. The oil phase effectively removes waterproof mascara and the water solution is formulated to protect and care for eye lashes without leaving any oil residue. The best part is that it is fragrance free and dissolves every trace of makeup while gently conditioning your lashes.
Since, I have an oily skin, I was little worried about the oily phase but the results have been perfect. No rubbing! No scrubbing! No brushing! Just a few gentle strokes around your eye area and the job is done! It easily removes my ultra-volume Body Shop mascara and gel eye liners. The main thing we expect from any makeup remover is for it to clean the area without leaving eyes sore and stinging! And I am so happy, this does the job right!
One noticeable point is that the oil phase quantity is a little less than water phase which actually means that the oil phase is good enough to condition and protect the eye lashes and subsequently give a push to the water phase to remove makeup efficiently – logical and feasible. Good work Garnier!
I am actually happy with the product and thankfully I haven’t seen any downside! Quite reasonable, efficient and competent! Go for it!
