When I’m going out for the night or to somewhere special, I love spending time creating a glamorous make up look that lasts the whole night long.I love looking polished… at least at the beginning of the night before I enjoy a cocktail or two and start dancing. My eyes are always the focus of my face and this is reflected in the makeup I use and the looks I create. I feel as though I need to make a feature of them, otherwise they seem to blend in with my face and none of my other features stand out in any positive way.
I use a lot of products which are designed for longevity so removing my eye makeup can be a bit of a pain, especially when using MAC pigments. My skincare routine used to just involve removing the bulk of my eye makeup with a makeup or baby wipe and then using Decleor Cleansing Milk on a cotton pad. Whilst this worked to some extent to remove my eye makeup, it is time consuming, not always pain free with excessive rubbing which isn’t good for the skin and often doesn’t completely remove my makeup- you know what I mean girls… the black eyeliner stained skin! I’ve finally decided that it’s time to bring out the big guys- eye makeup remover, and I’ve found a fantastic one.
Presenting… Klorane Soothing Eye Makeup Remover with Cornflower Extract
“Enriched with soothing and decongesting cornflower extract, this lotion removes makeup effortlessly.Very gentle and with a pH identical to that of tears, it ensures perfect tolerance and does not sting the eyes”
This product effortlessly removes all of the makeup I wear on my eyes like concealer, primer, eye shadow, liquid and pencil eyeliner, glitter, mascara, brow pencil, MAC pigments and lash glue; you name it, Klorane removes it quickly, easily and without any painful rubbing.My favourite thing about this product is that it isn’t oily. I’m really not a fan of eye makeup removers that are half oil where you have to shake the bottle to mix the solution- eurgh they feel awful.This one isn’t like that at all.The liquid is light, non sticky and not greasy at all.It has a slightly blue tinge to it and It has quite a clinical scent and I can’t quite put my finger on what it smells like but it’s definitely something I’m familiar with-I think its TCP, it smells quite antiseptic-y anyway and very clean, gentle and pure.When using eye makeup remover like this, it’s best to soak a cotton wool pad and wipe from the inner corner of the eyelid out over and from the root of the eyelashes to the tip.
Klorane make lots of eye and hair care products, I’m currently using their fantastic dry shampoo (review coming soon!). All Klorane products are very affordable for the quality and are available to buy from John Lewis and selected stockists online.
