Help Panda Eye distress !
I have a new mascara that I love tis fab BUT I can't remove it all at night
its not waterproof but my make up remover just doesn't seem to remove all of it so I still wake up with black splodges. So what do you use that works ?
Thank you

OP can I hijack thread and ask for some recommendations for cheaper but effective eye make up removers - I currently use Clinique take the day off, but at a tenner a bottle, it doesnt last long, and I use waterproof mascara too....

Vanillagorilla lovin the name and yes cheap is good

I use Boots Botanics. It always on three for two and its under a fiver a bottle. Its a bit oily, but its kind on my eyes and have been using it for years.

Yep, the Botanics oily one is good. The No7 one is similar and I slightly prefer it. It's £7.75 but you can get it when they have those £5 vouchers. It comes in a pump bottle which is less faff than the Botanics screw top.

Body Shop. Its perfect (and non-oily).

Agree with the No7 one - I usually stock up when they have those £5 vouchers as well.

The Body Shop camomile remover for sensitive eyes is also excellent.

body shop - huge bottle lasts for ages and it is good for sensitive eyes

Best one by far IMO is Olay. It's a cream instead of an oil and gets every bit of mine off.

And I do like a fair bit of eyeliner wink

Vichy Purete Thermale - blue bottle - £9 from Boots - excellent stuff. (They often have 3 for 2 offers when I stock up.)

with waterproof mascara I think the oily 'two phase' removers (where you shake to combine) are best.

bourjois do a blue one in massive bottle for under fiver (or could get it in current 3 for 2 cosmetics at Boots)

Garnier do one in a big bottle too, not specific for eyes but works great on mascara. under £4 I think.

Failing that, baby oil works too in an emergency!

Botanical eye make up remover gel is good, it's about £5 and you only need a small amount so it lasts forever. Not too greasy either!

MrsRobertDuvall Wed 28-Sep-11 18:42:58

I like loreal ...about 2.75 in boots

gregssausageroll Wed 28-Sep-11 18:50:26

The best one I have found is the one you need to shake from Clarins.

PersonalJesus Wed 28-Sep-11 18:54:10

Another one for Botanics here, I used to use the Chanel one until an assistant in Boots mithered me to try it. It was only a few pounds and I was sceptical. However, total convert - love it!

thenightsky Wed 28-Sep-11 18:58:01

Botanics one that you have to shake up. I always wear waterproof and it shifts it with 2 wipes. Never found anything to better it yet.

piratecat Wed 28-Sep-11 19:22:46

i second the loreal one!

MissBeehiving Wed 28-Sep-11 19:28:33

Macademia nut oil is the best makeup remover I've ever used. Good for your skin too smile

1gglePiggle Wed 28-Sep-11 19:30:38

Third vote for l'oreal 2-phase one!

rachyconks Wed 28-Sep-11 19:32:13

I use sephora eye make up remover, but if I can't get that, then virgin vie make up remover. They are great and even take off liquid eyeliner in one wipe!


RoxyRobin Wed 28-Sep-11 19:40:34

I think Simple eye make-up remover is very effective. It's non-oily, too. The oily ones leave a residue which doesn't bother me if I'm going straight to sleep but has me blinking nineteen to the dozen if I want to read in bed.

Brilliant- thank you thank you thank you [flowers] - though I now dont know which one to use !
Will start at the top and work down !

GetOrfMo1Land Wed 28-Sep-11 19:57:54

Lancome Bifacils - it is brilliant and gets rid of everything (including indelible gel eyeliner)

jepa Wed 28-Sep-11 19:58:17

Whoops my flower smiley didnt work smile

glub Wed 28-Sep-11 20:04:15

another vote for simple. i sometimes try loreal or garnier or something in that price bracket but always come back to this
