eye make up remover

MHB3

Hey Girls!  I'm looking for an eye make up remover that actually works.  I've tried a few different brands: Marcelle and Lancome's eye make up removers and Shopper's Life Brand make up remover wipes. 

 

Nothing works without me having to scrub (obviously the eye are is delicate, and im getting more worried about the fine lines all the rubbing may cause) or triple wash - seriously.  Very irritating to have black racoon eyes even after using eye make up remover and a cleanser to wash my face.  I don't wear more eyeliner and mascara than other girls I know...I don't even use waterproof, so don't understand why these products aren't working for me.......

 

suggestions???!!!

Eye Makeup remover.

Im not sure if youve ever tried Yves Rocher products.But my favourite is there Chamomile Eye makeup remover.What I love about it is it is not greasy at all!A really cheap idea that works great is Johnsons baby oil(I like the lavender one)Tearless baby shampoo works great as well.

Eye makeup remover

I've had the same problem in the past, until I started using Nivea Eye Makeup Remover (but not the gentle one). I wear A LOT of dark eye shadow and black waterproof eyeliner/mascara and it just wipes it all away completely! My favorite part is that it's a soothing cream rather than a liquid and it does not leave any sort of film on your skin.

Mary Kay eye makeup remover

I'm not sure if you have a Mary Kay rep but I find that it's the best makeup eye remover I've tried. I like it better than Clinique and Lancome's. What I like most about it is that you don't have to scrub and eye makeup comes off easily. It's oil-free too.

Eye makeup remover

Lancome's Bi-Facil is a very heavy duty eye makeup remover and removes all traces of makeup. Were you using Lancome's Effacil? That one is really gentle and only removes light makeup. Also try saturating your cotton pad with the remover, if you aren't using enough eye makeup remover, you tend to rub your eyes more.

Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover

I completely agree with judy37. the Mary Kay remover is the best I've ever used and it's half the price of the stuff I used before (won't mention the dept. store brand name). The expensive stuff did work but made my eyes feel very "greasy" after using and the MK stuff does not. Plus it has vitamins in it that nourish the sensitive eye skin and promote lash repair and growth. I won't be without the MK remover now.

You need to find a MK rep and get yourself some! If you don't like it, it's totally returnable with no fuss too. easy - peasy! *laugh*

L'oreal = AMAZING

I find that the L'oreal Waterproof Makeup Remover works wonders! It's at a great price (though I think the prices have gone up), and it really does work well on waterproof makeup. It doesn't take a lot to do the job, either.

My mom loves using the Ponds Cold Cream which seems to work pretty well, but I find it too messy.

You can also try loading a cotton pad with the makeup removers you currently own, placing on your eye for a couple of seconds before you start wiping. I find that it helps. :)

Good luck!

Olive Oil

I really like Olive Oil. It's cheap convenient and easy to use. I never ever have to rub.
Other than that I found Lancome's Bi-facil to work well.

MK

Mary Kay is definitely one of the best - but you do need a MK rep.


Out of the drug store brands, I like and use All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Lotion by Neutrogena - it is very gentle and does not irritate my eyes much.
