I have tried so many eye make-up removers that it’s difficult to count them all. Maybe I expect too much from the make-up remover, but basically:
a) I want something that is not greasy or irritate my eyes
b) I want all my eye lashes to stay at their place and not fall out
I don’t think that my expectations are unrealistic, yet I wasn’t lucky to encounter a product that would pass both conditions even though I have tried so many brands from drug stores to high-end.
However, eye make-up remover from Сто рецептов красоты seems to do ok. It certainly passed the first condition, it doesn’t contain oil, is very gentle and if, by accident, few drops end up in my eyes, it doesn’t have itchy effect. Feels like water. It’s active ingredients include green tea, aloe and cucumber extracts. I certainly have less fallen eye lashes compared to a lot of other products I used, but still result is not perfect. This is going to do for now, but I’m going to continue my quest for the perfect eye make-up remover.
I have to say Russian cosmetic brands surprised me with the quality of their products, some of them are so much better than their pricey western alternatives.
*Tip: It’s always useful to read the instructions on the bottle. You might think why would I need instructions to remove make-up, it’s so simple, you just wipe it off with the cotton pad. However, instructions suggest to hold the wet pad on the eye lid for 20 seconds and then to wipe it off. I noticed that it’s easier to remove the thick layers of mascara that way.
If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below.
Have a great day!
