It's well known around these parts that I am against liquid eye makeup removers. This is from bitter past experience where liquid ones have stung me silly or given me fuzzy vision.
Such was my dislike of them that I wouldn't even buy the infamous Botanics remover.
Then along came Purity Organic Skincare with the Conditioning Cleansing Lotion. Their whole premis is clear in their name, they do pure, organic skincare. This is something I never really paid much attention to in the past, if something worked, it worked..regardless of the chemicals it had it now but now, I'm rethinking this as it may have advserse effects that only materialise in the future.
I was planning on giving it to a cousin when I discovered that my beloved eye makeup remover pads contained the evil that is mineral oil. You can see the bind I was in..I'd be damned if I'd use a liquidy remover and I'd be damned if I used mineral oils. I bit the bullet and chucked the pads away.
The instructions advise being liberal with it but me having been scarred before started small and got bigger and bolder. I was very apprehensive about using this so initially I put it around the outer edges of the eyes (the lids and the brow) and then I moved in nearer to the actual eye.
Did it sting? No. Did I feel uncomfortable? No. I added enough to take my makeup off and then some, just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. I kept it on for ages. I removed my makeup in the shower (I wanted to give it a thorough testing as I do with all things I call HG). No adverse reaction at all. AT ALL.
I can't stress how brilliant this is for sensitive eyes, I've used it time and time again in the same way and each time it's been as gentle as a gentle thing. I am so glad that this is another HG item I can tick off the list. I used to think that if the area near my eyes was oily, it would help moisturise them, this however, manages to moisturise my eyes more, has no nasties in it and doesn't leave them feeling greasy.
It's budget friendly too, retailing at £4.99, you can buy it from Superdrug.
