What's a good eye make up remover for EXTREMELY sensitive eyes??

Avene Gentle Eye Make Up Remover (from bigger Boots) is specifically for sensitive eyes and melts everything off very effectively, even waterproof mascara.

Lush Ultrabland removed with a wet flannel. Or Tropic Cleanser, which is deceptive as it is citrus scented, but absolutely fine on my very sensitive eyelids.

I just use micellar water, on cotton wool very gentle. its the Garnier one I think.

I've triedtwo brands of micellar water (one was Garnier) and they both stung my eyelids and left them itchy.

I find both the Nivea and garner bi phase eye makeup removers to be great for my sensitive eyes, don't sting at all.

Avoid the clinique one. It stings like hell.

Lancome Bi-Facil. It ain't cheap but it works. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper is the one from Wilkinsons, it's not quite as good, but it's only £1 or so and is pretty effective with no sting or redness.

I was always use Simple. I have sensitive eyes & there is no stinging.

Nivea all the way. I find others harsh, so have used Nivea for years now.

Coconut oil. Removes everything! And then run over with a hot flannel, then a cold one. Bliss.

Rimmel eye make up remover (clean bottle, blue writing) is good.

I have tried all of the above but they all irritated in some way, some stung, some left eyes blurry or sore sad

Gatineau Floracil.

Unscented baby oil and a warm flannel, Liz Earle cleanse and polish gets all makeup off too. Most other things make my eyes sting, I hate micellar waters.

Liz Earle Eyebright. Lovely smell, very gentle and soothing. It's advertised as an eye tonic rather than a remover but it gets my heavy black eyeliner off no problems, and without any need to scrub or drag at my eyes. Most others give me stingy eyes, even Simple, but no issues at all with this.

I found Liz Earle eye bright didn't remove my black eyeliner at all though the cleanse and polish is great, still doesn't remove my eyeliner though. Boots No 7 eye make up remover is good. Has anyone tried eye make up remover pads?

Vaseline removed with a wet flannel is my standby if we're away overnight, doesn't sting when a lot of others do. Simple stings my eyelids.

Baby oil and Vaseline are no nos for me I can't use anything oily they make my eyes blurry and irritated for too long after.
I have tried Liz Earle Eyebright but no good for me, I cannot use the c&p sad

Tesco unperfumed baby wet wipes. Dirt cheap too. If it's good enough for a baby's bottom it's good enough for my (sensitive) eyes. Been using them for years.

mousmous Sun 14-Jun-15 09:16:14

can you use your normal moisturiser on a pad?

baby wipes don't work for me, they make my skin sting badly and don't seem to get much make up off.

ThatsNotEvenAWord Sun 14-Jun-15 09:25:58

Aveeno moisturiser on a cotton wool pad?

I use no7 blue shaky one, I find if I use it first and then wash my face with my usual cleanser then the oily residue is washed off and doesn't irritate my eyes

La Roche Posay.
Everything else stings/ burns my eyes.
I find Vaseline is too greasy and blurs my sight.
