No7 Eye Make-Up Remover

Boots keep giving me No7 vouchers, so I have of course been utilising these vouchers! My first I spent very wisely and bought myself their Eye Make Up Remover which comes highly recommended by a number of bloggers so thought I'd give it a whirl!

I was very intrigued to try this as I've used eye make up removers before, usually the wipes, and they have been pretty average - nothing special. So I really wanted this to be fantastic.
It has a dual action formula which helps to condition the skin as well as cleanse and removing all eye make up including waterproof mascara. You have to give it a good shake before you use it.
Pop it on a cotton pad and remove eye make up as you would anything else. 

I'm just going to go ahead and say I was a little bit disappointed by this product after all of its stellar reviews. 
It's quite hard to mix, you have to really shake it up and there have been a few instances when I've put it on the pad and some of the liquid is clean and some is blue.
It is very easy to use however. It does get rid of everything which is exactly what you want and you can use it on a cotton bud as well to get rid of those tricky areas. If it hasn't mixed properly it doesn't work as well as it should, which I have to say is probably about 50% of the time, when it is mixed properly though it's great.
It is also incredibly oily - this probably helps get rid of make up - however I have to use my cleanser after this to make sure all oil is gone. This does put me off a little bit I have to say, I have quite oily skin anyway so this doesn't really help.
It is better then any of the wipes I used to use so it is the best eye make up removed I have tried, and for only £2.75 with the voucher I can't complain too much. I am also still using it so I don't hate it! Like I said, it does work and it came in very handy when I poken myself in the eye with my mascara and had black everywhere... it took that off very easily and quickly! But it's just not as amazing as I hoped... Sorry!

I am still looking for my perfect eye make up remover, this hasn't filled that void for me I'm afraid! Like I said, it does work and it does get rid of everything, but the oil just really puts me off and its inability to mix half the time is just not worth its usual price for me.

What eye make-up removers would you recommend for me?
