If I like LRP & REN & Eucerin which eye make-up remover?

Just that really. I have very sensitive skin and well managed rosacea. I need it to be effective too though and take off the excellent M&S eye shadow pencil that stays put ALL DAY! I would also consider Body Shop, perhaps Liz Earle. Thank you.

My fave is the Lancôme one: cheaper ones just don't cut the mustard in comparison (currently using a Sephora one, having to rub vigorously to get the samba eye liner off... Not going to repeat buy that!)

Garnier one is ok for the price, but not as gentle as the Lancôme one IMHO.

Anyone please?

I've got sensitive skin (it reacts to nearly everything) and I've ditched eye make up remover in favour of micellar water. So far I've tried the Vichy one and the bargainous Garnier original micellar, and neither have made my eyes react. As a bonus, I can also use the Vichy one to remove all other makeup on my face without any redness. The Garnier one is probably slightly harsher, though still better than most things.
If you ask in Boots, they often have little samples of the Vichy one.

I like REN and Eucerin too. I don't use an eye make-up remover. I simply use the Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm and wipe eye make-up off gently with a warm flannel. Having said that, I don't tend to wear a lot of heavy eye make-up, just the Laura Mercier eyebase, maybe a bit of shadow on top, one coat of Clinique Naturally Glossy mascara and a bit of Eyeko eyeliner.

Thank you for the replies (sorry yet, crossed posts). I will look at those options. I don't wear heavy make up either and hadn't thought that perhaps I don't need an eye make up remover. I get quite dry eyes since having laser surgery too which I'm sure adds to the sensitivity as well.

I'vw got similarly problematic skin and I use neat Cetaphil to remove all my make up, including eye.
Please tell us more about the excellent eye pencil.

It's this one. It really does stay on for hours and hours. I have the bronze, slate and chocolate :-)

I have sensitive eyes and the Clinique naturally gentle eye up remover is great or bioderma.

I have v sensitive rosacea prone skin and love the 2-stage Garnier eye makeup remover - purple and clear liquid that you shake to combine. I find it better than micellar water.

this one

Leaves my eye area really soft too.
