Review : Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover
A bi-phase formula which ensure it's as gentle as it is speedy and effective. Suitable for contact lens wearers and for sensitive eyes, it also conditions lashes.
A double phase formula to instantly remove all eye makeup, even heavy or waterproof. Does not sting even the most sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers. Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.
- Rose and Cornflower extracts: moisturize, soften and soothe.
-Ultrafine oils: soften, enhance effective makeup removal.
This 30ml trial size was part of a mascara set which I bought sometime back, while trying to utilize s $5 Tangs voucher. I used to use eye make-up remover only during the days I applied eye make-up which is usually during the weekends only. However, I have learnt that its best to remove my concealer with a dedicated eye make-up remover which also meant that I used up my products pretty fast too.
This dual phase remover is pretty good, as it removes all my eye make-up effortlessly, without any tugging.
Just be reminded to shake well before use. My way of usage is to pour it on cotton pads and press and hold on my eye area for a few seconds before taking it off. That is for eyeliner removal. For normal eyeshadows, I just need to swipe it off with my cotton pads and everything came off. Nice!
Even though its dual-phase, it does not leave any oily film on the undereye area.
It scored 4.2/5 from 61 reviewers on Makeupalley and 6/10 from Total Beauty
