Since trying the No7 eye makeup remover, I've been on the search for a cheaper alternative. I'm still looking for something that matches up to my expectations.
I picked this up just after the Garnier micellar water was launched in the UK and thought I'd test the duo out together.
First off, this didn't last very long. My bottle of micellar water is still 1/3 full, but I finished this off about 1 month ago. Bummer.
The 2 in 1 formula consists of a purple oil layer over a water based solution, which you shake to mix together then squeeze onto a cotton pad.
I found that compared to other eye makeup removers, I had to use alot more of this on each eye to get the job done, which is probably why it ran out so fast. It did dissolve my eye makeup, but me being as impatient as I am, it just didn't do the job quick enough. I found that I had to get rubbing too, which on the bottle it says there was no need for.
I found it really quite greasy and sometimes would lead to a film over my eyes, rendering me blind for 5 minutes after taking my makeup off.
To be completely honest, I found that even just micellar water worked better for me that this. Another disappointment for me on they eye makeup remover from.
Looks like I'll have to get the Boots one after all!
Do you have any eye makeup removers you'd recommend?
