Panda Eyes

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find me the perfect eye make up remover: Do you accept?

It appears I have a problem. I have four, highly recommended, removers and none of them float my boat. It's become an obsession to find the perfect one!

Nivea Visage Extra Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover
This is a nice product, don't get me wrong. It doesn't feel oily (which is good) and it doesn't bring me out in spots. However, it's not kidding when it says "extra gentle". It's so gentle, it doesn't actually really do much.

No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make-Up Remover
This came very highly recommended so I had really high expectations! Now, it does remove make up, however it is so oily that it smudges more then removes, also it is ridiculously oily. Like breakout skin oily, not impressed.

Botanics Soothing Eye Make Up Remover 
This is the one I'm still using. It is oily, but not as much so as the No7 remover and it removes more than smudges. However, it is still quite oily and still causes breakouts. It says it's suitable for all skin types, it is unfortunately not.

Simple Kind to Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-Up Remover Cream
I thought I'd try a cream as I haven't yet. Unfortunately no luck. It's lovely and moisturizing, but in terms of removing eye make up no luck unfortunately.

It seems to me that an oily remover works best on removing make up, which is fine but I need one that doesn't make me break out or look like a panda. I have recently ordered a Body Shop version, so I'm hoping this will be a bit better, but still - recommendations please!

Please please help - recommendations are needed bbloggers!



  1. I use a cheap one from Superdrug's Simply Pure range, it's abour £2.50 I think and works pretty well for me :)
    It's a shame about the No7 one, I've heard good things about that one too!


  2. I agree with the No7 one, I did a review on that and I also found it to be so so oily, I just hated it.

    I think I may have used the Nivea one a long time ago so I can't really comment on it now.

    My favourite eye make up remover is the Body Shop Gentle Camomile one. It is lovely and not oily in the slightest :)

  3. I use Johnson & Johnson Daily Essential Fragrance Free Wipes, they work really well for me and I have skin that's prone to breakouts too. Although they are not specifically for eye make-up, I used them all over my face and am happy with the end result :)

  4. I love the Boots Cucumber range eye make up remover - its very cheap and effective! We have a similar skin type I think.

  5. I use the Caudalie Cleansing Water to remove my eye make up at the moment & it works a treat! But is on the pricier side x

  6. Now, this is a little expensive, but it's utterly amazing. I adore it, and it's non-oily ;)


    I'll be doing a review on it soon as well :) xx
