Today I bring to you this gem the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover. It retails for £3.49 in Boots which is where I picked it up. Don’t get it confused with the Garnier Fresh Eye Make-Up Remover or even the Garnier 2 in 1 Makeup Remover which some people seem to do.
I love this thing, it’s one of those two-phased products, so you shake it all about to get it working and then apply onto a cotton pad. I was kinda hoping it would come out purple but I was sold dreams. Moving on…I expected this to be greasy simply because it has oil in it but nope you do not feel a thing on your eyelids.
Upon touch you can feel the slightest bit of greasiness, and I mean it is not even grease actually, more moisture, if anything it is comforting that it’s left something behind to nourish your eyelids.
It is much gentler on the eyes compared the product I was using before, which was from Simple, and certainly gets everything off in the one cotton pad. Now let me put things in context - I am not a big waterproof anything wearer – I occasionally wear waterproof mascara. For me I’ve found the product takes off the waterproof mascara as well as it does non waterproof. I do wear “waterproof” kohl eyeliner on my waterline and man it is fantastic at making sure I have none left. Honestly no more panda eyes in the morning and that was just a huge problem with the Simple eye remover I had previously. I use this before I wash my face (or before I use a cleansing oil if I have foundation on) and just make sure I focus on having the area clean. As the product states ‘no rubbing’ is involved. I apply to cotton pads (one for each eye), hold it over my eye for a few seconds and then wipe away. The wonderful thing with the Garnier product is I can get really close to my waterline and I don’t feel any stinging or pain.
I frikkin love this stuff and I am going through it much quicker than my previous product, simply because I love using it. It also mentions on the bottle that it ‘protects eyelashes’ I don’t know about this claim as my eyelashes look the same as they did 4 weeks ago, but hey as long as they haven’t fallen out I’m okay with that.
I’m pretty sure this baby will be suitable for all you heavy eye make-up users out there. I’m a simple girl, mascara and eyeliner in my waterline and on top (when I’m bothered) and I have found this thing takes of every last scrap. The bottle is a dinky size and is 125ml so it is actually travel size friendly as well.
I’m happy and also happy with the price tag. I cannot see me and this gem parting for a while. Buy buy buy!
