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)

Body shop camomile lotion

I really rate oil of Olay eye make up remover cream - seems the same as Liz Earle's C and P.

Baby oil. No dragging, gets it all off.

Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse takes everything off.. also Clarins One Step (but too much pours out of the bottle for heavy handed me so works out pricey). Must get some more Pre-Cleanse

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

RoC biphase stuff, £3 from direct cosmetics.

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

Liz Earle cleanse and polish

Boots No 7 really good for getting mascara off

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.

Baby oil.

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

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.

plain vaseline, apply, rub gently, then wipe off

HerRoyalNotness Sun 28-Apr-13 02:39:07

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

therumoursaretrue Sun 28-Apr-13 02:17:22

I love the Lancôme one too.

GTbaby Sun 28-Apr-13 01:29:36

Olive oil.

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

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