Sick of panda eyes - your foolproof eye make up remover and process

I don't even wear much eye make up (mascara mainly but sometimes eyeliner) but each morning after I cleanse I get panda eyes.

I double cleanse at night - make up remover (use cotton pads, maybe 15 secs of soaking my eyes with the pads) followed by cleanse and still get morning panda eyes.

Any suggestions welcome.

Garnier Essentials Express 2 in 1, purple one. Is fabulous and gentle, excellent with waterproof mascara! Cotton pad, gentle wipe a couple of times and then I just gently rinse over with a little warm water on a clean pad.

Clinique take the day off for eyes ( also the purple one ) on a cotton pad , takes off all makeup including waterproof

I use the Nivea bi-phase remover, then cleanse my whole face afterwards.

Lancôme eye makeup remover

Garnier sensitive micellar water. I take all my make up off with it, and then do it again. Katy’s from Strictly said that she did it and I thought I would do the same, as they wear so much make up, it just work. And it does. One thing that I make sure I do is to remove the mascara from the other side of my lashes if you know what I mean. So if you usually take your eye make up off with a downward motion and your eyes almost closed, then repeat with an upward motion and your eyes open. I was surprised how much came off, and I only ever wear one coat of mascara.

No panda eyes here anymore.

Erase your face cloth or primark equivalent. You only need water with it. I could never get my waterproof mascara off but this was amazing.

Nivea eye make up remover (the one for waterproof make up) then no7 oil/gel cleanser with a flannel then a wash off cleanser. Think the real secret is using a good eye make up remover. The nivea one is cheap but does the job!

What mascara are you using?

I use benefit they're real which is a nightmare to get off. I use eve lom balm cleanser and work it in through lashes leave it a few seconds for the oils to break down the mascara, give them another (gentle) rub and remove with a flannel, paying extra attention to roots of lashes, which gets rid of every trace.

damp flannel.
a bit of moisturiser on one corner.
wipe off eye make up (separate corners for each eye)
rinse flannel.

after that apply face wash/soap to face and wipe off with the warm wet flannel.

NARS concealer works for me

cheater I use benefit they’re real mascara too, and Garnier sensitive micellar water takes it off no problem.

I have a make up cloth that only needs water. I’ve no idea how it works but it really does!!

Oil at night, I use vitamin e oil or almond oil, removes everything.

MsChatterbox Mon 17-Feb-20 08:09:00

I use baby oil and a cotton pad. Use it on my face too it's great.

Buy makeup that doesn’t smudge too badly. Bobby Brown eyeliner. Clarinet Supralash mascara.
