Does anyone know of such a thing? Something that does it quickly too? ATM I use bodyshop waterproof, but it makes my eyes run. Not too fussed on oil based ones as I think they leave a film on my eyes but last used one years ago so prepared to try again. and also not too £££
The one I think is the best is oddly the other Body Shop one - the liquidy stuff in the bottle. I've tried expensive ones, but I always return to this. Gets everything off (although I don't wear waterproof mascara, I wear one that comes off with warm water) and is super-gentle on my eyes and skin. And does not leave an oily film.
Does it have to be waterproof? I use L'Oreal Gentle Eye Make Up Remover for sensitive eyes. It's brilliant for ordinary make up but not sure if it would remove the waterproof ones. It does what it says on the bottle, so to speak - it is really gentle but effective.
I have really sensitive eyes, and most things irritate them, including the body shop one you referred to. However, I have been using this recently La Roche Posay and it is really good, make-up melts off and no irritation. I just rub it all over my face/ eyes and then use a damp cloth or muslin to remove.
I have ridiculously sensitive eyes - the Simple remover kills them. The only one I found I could use was Lancôme which at over £20 a bottle was a bit unfortunate. Decided to buy a bottle of L'Oreal's for sensitive eyes the other day in Boots for £1.99. Have only used it once do far but by eyes were perfect after - not a bit of runniness or redness after or the next morning which is nothing short of a miracle
I just use E45 cream...the kind in a big pump dispenser. That and cotton wool. It's good at getting mascara off. if I run out, I use olive oil. If you have sensitive skin you need the most basic stuff for your face.
