I just finished a teeny bottle of Gatineau Floracil which I really liked.
It shifted my Mally mascara and no stinging.
So,I am just nosy- looking for reccomendations.

Any ideas before I treat myself?

What do y'all use?

(Spit on a hanky will not be considered BTW)

Lancome Bi Facil or Clinique take the day off. I'm going to buy some Bioderma Sensibio when we're in France this summer. Have heard such good things about it.

Not Simple. It stings the fuck clean out of my eyes.

I love Simple eye makeup remover! I don't like any that have to be washed off. I can't be bothered.

Olive oil.

I love the Lancôme one too.

Clinique, the purple one, can't live without it

plain vaseline, apply, rub gently, then wipe off

Bioderma Sensiblo H2O is fab! V gentle, gets the most stubborn make up off and leaves no residue. I've bought mine in France and from Amazon but think Boots might be stocking it now or v soon.

Liz Earle cleanse & polish then the toner. No stinging and very effective!

Baby oil.

I've tried them all and use a variety. I wear fairly heavy eye make up so need something heavy duty yet gentle. The best is cleanse and polish. I like Lancôme bi facil and I'm also really impressed with Nivea double one ... It's three quid and it is identical to bi facil in performance.

Boots No 7 really good for getting mascara off

Liz Earle cleanse and polish

Lush Ultrabland is the only one I've found that doesn't irritate the skin, if I run out I use Vaseline

Just sitting here thinking I need to buy some, will be watching...

RoC biphase stuff, £3 from direct cosmetics.

I used to use the Simple cleansing wipes but have just switched to Tesco own brand which are much better and a third of the price
