Liquid eye makeup removers are probably the most common in my stash. Although I have a ton of cleansers, I always prefer to use specific eye makeup removers to remove my eye makeup, than a cream, balm or oil cleanser. Although I don't pile on the makeup, I often use quite a few shadows (usually dark in shade), waterproof mascaras and liners as well as long-wearing bases and of course, brow powders. I need a remover that can effortlessly remove everything, without irritating my eyes. I know how hard it can be navigating the skincare aisles, so I thought I'd share my top three, eye makeup removers that tick all the right boxes.
The number one spot every time has to go to the Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover. A bi-phase makeup remover, a good shake is needed before applying to a cotton wool pad. Holding a cotton pad on each eye for 30 seconds or so, I can gently swipe away my makeup like magic. Suitable for even the most sensitive of eyes as well as contact lens wearers, it uses ultra-fine natural oils which effortlessly lift away all traces of makeup, whilst keeping your lashes soft and nourishes. Must-have, couldn't live without product right here.
A very good dupe for the Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover is the gorgeous Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover*. The Claudia Louch eye makeup remover is an oil-free, non-irritating formula which uses natural active ingredients of soothing Cucumber Fruit extract alongside Chamomile Flower extract, which work to effectively and quickly remove makeup. It works just as well as my Clarins favourite, as well as being 94% natural.
My final pick for my top three liquid eye makeup removers is the beautifully packaged Benefit Remove It Makeup Remover* With an oil-free formula, I find this perfect for removing both eye and face makeup, and it does so with eye. On my eyes it's super gentle, and works well to remove every last trace of makeup, including waterproof makeup. It doesn't have a pourer of sorts - just an open top with a screw-top lid, so that's the only downside for me. But other than that, it's a perfect alternative to my top Clarins favourite.
