We all have tried all kinds of eye make-up removers. And like everyone else I have searched everywhere for a good one. The best one. The one that can remove waterproof mascara in one swipe. The one that won’t make us look like panda bear in the morning.
That one. The one we all need in our lives.
Is there such a product?
Here are my top three:
2. Bioderma Make-up Removing Micelle Solution
3. The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
Among all that I have tried I pared it down to these 3 products. These are the best in the market as of date.
I found it!
It removes water resistant make-up seamlessly, it takes out waterproof mascara so fast. And no panda eyes in the morning. Guaranteed.
“Fruit Stem Cell Complex fortifies lashes, as gentle botanical emollients gently loosen and remove all types of facial make-up, including water resistant formulas, without irritation or oily residue.”
This is what it says in the packaging. When you read this you silently tell yourself: “yeah, right. Sell it to me more.” You kinda doubt what it says like we do for first time use of products. Wait until we actually try it and then we can say, Yes! It actually works like they say it would.
It is very gentle to use ’cause it is made of organic ingredients. It has Jojoba oil, Aloe barbadensis juice, fruit stem cells, bio active 8 berry complex, hyaluronic acid, Rosehip oil, white tea extracts, etc.
It has all the ingredients that nourishes your skin while cleaning it. It’s like hitting 2 birds with one stone.
How cool is that?
Bioderma Make-up Removing Micelle Solution
I had no intentions of trying another product. I love my Andalou Naturals already.
But when I saw this in one of the pharmacies when I went to Paris I thought, okay masubukan nga ito at nagka gulo ang buong Youtube dahil nito. I picked up one bottle.
When I used it that night, I thought hmmm… lumalaban ito. It was also very good. It removed my make-up in one swipe and no panda eyes the following morning.
So, before leaving Paris I went back to the pharmacy and bought a few more bottles. At that time it was only available in Paris. Even British beauty gurus buy it there.
I like Andalou Naturals packaging better. Bioderma comes in a big bottle while Andalou Naturals come in a sleek pump bottle. Another thing that I like about Andalou Naturals is, it is in cream form while Bioderma is in water form and it is not good for traveling.
So, between this and Andalou Naturals, for me Andalou Naturals wins.
But both are good. And I will continue to use both.
The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up RemoverBody Shop has this Camomille line. They have Camomille Silky Cleansing oil and Camomille Cleansing Butter for the face. They have Camomille body butter and Camomille body scrub for the body.
And they also have Camomille Eye make-up remover.
In one of my Body Shop visits early last year they gave me some give aways and one of them is the Camomille Eye Make-up Remover.
I put it aside and was planning to bring it when I travel since it is a small bottle.
When I went to the beach last November I brought this with me. I was surprised.
This is good. This is really good.
Like Andalou Naturals and Bioderma it is gentle, organic and no panda eyes in the morning. Not only no panda eyes even in your lower lash line you don’t have that irritating black line that is hard to remove. You know what I mean.
This clean your eyes very well. I only use 1 cotton pad. I don’t need to use another one to totally clean my eyes. It only takes 1 cotton pad. Your make-up gone and your eyes clean.
I haven’t bought the regular size bottle yet since I use either the Bioderma or Andalou Naturals daily.
Hands down The Body Shop Camomille Gentle Eye Make-up Remover wins.
But it doesn’t mean I will stop using Andalou Naturals and Bioderma. I will still use them regularly. It is better that I have other alternatives.
All 3 products are all good.
You can buy Andalou Naturals Fruit Stem Cells Science Lash + Lid Make-up Remover at all Healthy Options branches. Bioderma is already available here in Manila. You can get it in Watson’s. And of course the Camomille Gentle Eye Make-up Remover is available in The Body Shop.
