Eyes made sore by moisturiser and make up

Since having kids I seem to have developed allergies. Moisturiser (no 7) makes my eyes water and blink. Eye liner, shadow and mascara make them even worse. I started using waterproof mascara which is a bit of an improvement. Any suggestions anyone??

I use simple skin care.

La Roche Posay Toleriane range - for allergenic and hyper sensitive skin. And Bioderma Sensibio eye make up remover / micelles water.

Also try Butterflies Eyecare for specialist make up for allergic eyes.

Dermalogica ultra calming rage is brilliant.

I can only use a cream eye make up remover. I use the boots own one (blue bottle) it's £1.20ish. It's only one that doesn't make my eyes feel like they're on fire.

I was exactly the same OP, but it was my whole face as well as my eyes.

I've started using this range. Avene.

You can get it in Boots too. They do everything from tinted moisturiser to cleanser & make up remover.

It's really calmed my skin & my eyes down.
