L'oreal Gentle Make-up Remover Eye review

03 August 2013

I picked this up the other day when I was in Tesco, I wanted to try a makeup remover for eyes as I always wear quite heavy eyeliner and a fair amount of mascara. However I have possibly the most sensitive eyes in the world, which is not nice. My eyes constantly water and if I get anything in them they sting for hours and go red and puffy for hours- not nice.


So when I saw this was suitable for sensitive eyes I thought I would give it a try as it was on special offer for about £3 which is much cheaper to my Bioderma which I usually use to take my make up off. The back of the product states "L'oreal Paris gentle eye make up remover "


However when it came to me using this product I had my normal gel liner and mascara on, neither of which were waterproof. Firstly I found it very difficult to get my makeup off with a lot of scrubbing it did come off and also it really stung my eyes, even though its meant for sensitive eyes. As this product was quite inexpensive I didn't expect it to take my makeup off in seconds however I did feel like it was hard work to get it off.

As I said above my eyes are extremely sensitive so this product may work for you, I have read a few good reviews on it, however it just wasn't for me.

Have you tried any old eye make up removers for sensitive eyes?


  1. I have the same problem with my eyes, they water constantly, its so annoying!
    I always use those blue/white (them ones with the oil) eye make up removers which are for waterproof make up, because I find they take my eyeliner and mascara off way better than the normal ones :) x

    1. It is so annoying isn't it! It always makes my eyeliner smudge too which I can't stand. Oh, what brand makeup remover?

      Thank you!
