“Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water”
This remover is one of my all time favourites, and not just because of the price! This product retails for £4.99 for a 400ml bottle, which is an excellent price point for the amount you get! As I have quite sensitive skin myself I struggle to find a remover that doesn’t irritate my eyes and skin, mainly the skin around my eyelids. This formula has been designed specifically to cater to sensitive skin and I’ve never found it to irritate, even around the most susceptible areas. The formula feels so gentle but still allows you to take off your makeup without the need to really rub the skin or eye area. It is made with micelles which act like tiny magnets which lift the makeup right off your face. Another thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t contain any perfume which helps be even kinder and more gentle to the skin. An absolute must have!
“Simple ‘Kind to Skin’ purifying cleansing lotion”
I’ve always found Simple to be exactly that – Simple. This product retails for £3.80 for a 200ml bottle. This formula does not contain any harsh chemicals, perfumes, colours or oils making it very kind to the skin. Not having any of these thing, and keeping the formula ‘simple’, really helps to efficiently remove makeup without being harsh or irritating. I find that the formula gently removes makeup without leaving any residue on the skin, leaving my skin feeling fresh and cleansed. The formula also contains vitamin B which helps to smooth and soften the skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and eradicates any feeling of dryness after it is used. A great remover for people that struggle with dry or sensitive skin.
“Nivea daily essentials ‘Double Effect’ makeup remover”
This remover is an absolute dream as it doesn’t just remove makeup, it also cleanses the skin like a toner. The price point for this product is £3.89 for a 125ml bottle. It has a ‘two phase’ technology that tackles makeup without feeling harsh to the skin. The first is an oil phase which effectively removes makeup from the skin and eyes, even removing waterproof mascara with ease. The second stage is an aqueous stage which protects and cares for your skin, and equally importantly your eyelashes, while removing any oily residue from the first phase. The best part? It’s all combines into one easy to use formula, so you get double the action with half the hassle! Another thing I personally love is the product requires shaking to combine before use, allowing me to take out any stresses I might have from the day before taking off my makeup!
“L’oreal ‘fine flowers’ cleansing milk”
This formula claims to remove makeup, nourish and cleanse the skin – and it does exactly that! The price point is £5.99 for 500ml, a very reasonable price. It is designed for sensitive and dry skin. The smell of rose and jasmine immediately drew me to this product straight away. The formula is advertised as a ‘milk’ and is very gentle and hydrating, while efficiently removing makeup. It took me two cotton pads of product to remove my full face, which is around the same amount as other products. My only criticism would be that it leaves a slight residue on the skin, however this is probably down to it being very hydrating. I do find myself leaving a toner afterwards to really cleanse my skin, but this isn’t too bad as they provide one in the range for you!
