This makeup remover by Carins is one of the best and most gentle that I’ve ever tried. Despite being for eyes, I do use it for removing stubborn lip products too.
This is a bi-phase formula so needs to be shaken up before use and once it is activated, I like to take a few drops on a cotton pad/round and gentle press over my eyes (or lips) and hold it in place for a few seconds then gently rub away my makeup.
This makes light work of removing waterproof mascara and eye liner, with no tugging at the eye area. I do this too for lip products. This breaks down and removes makeup so quickly. You don’t need much to remove even heavy eye makeup, so a bottle will last you a long time.
I have a 30ml travel size and despite getting plenty of use lately, there is still a lot left in the bottle and I know it is something that’s going to last for a while more.
It is scented, but it is extremely gentle and doesn’t give me ‘cloudy eyes’ (if you know, you know), it doesn’t sting or leave any residue or film on my eyes or lips and it doesn’t cause any irritation. Because it is oil-based, my skin feels soft and not stripped after use.
I find with some eye makeup removers (especially ones that don’t contain oil) that my skin can feel tight/stripped after use, but I have never experienced that feeling with this. This feels absolutely beautiful and it has a touch of luxury to it too.
It is expensive for a makeup remover, but it is a nice one to use and if you don’t mind spending a bit, it is one worth checking out. A 125ml bottle costs £21 / €23 / $30 although there is a 50ml available in some retailers. Available on Clarins.ie, Clarins.co.uk, & ClarinsUSA.com. Currently there are offers on various retailers so you will get this for a little less.
