Review: Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover

One thing that I buy frequently is eye makeup remover. I used them up quite fast as I do my eye makeup everyday. Although not a heavy makeup but reasonable amount is needed to remove all the waterproof mascara and eyeliner.

Today’s eye makeup remover review is from none other than Clarins! I bought a bottle of Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover back in October 2011. This remover is 125ml and cost RM98. It’s a bi-phase remover which is meant for heavy and waterproof makeup. So far this is the most expensive eye make-up remover I ever used! Hope it’s as good as their skincare aight!

What I love about Clarins’ way of packaging their product is that they always shrink wrap the bottle cap part which is mostly covering half of the bottle or jar. This gave me a self relief that no one have open or used it before.

At the back of the bottle you’d find the usual info. Don’t you just love the sky blue color?

Shake well before use. Soak a cotton pad with product and wipe gently over eyelids then lashes without rubbing. Use a separate cotton pad for each eye.

This is how I remove my eye makeup.
Firstly, shake the remover vigorously to mix the liquid as this is bi-phase remover. Soak a cotton pad with remover in a line form. Refer picture below.

Then place the soaked part of the cotton pad under the eyelash and press onto your eyes. Stay in the position for 1-2 minutes and move your hand gently. Not rubbing but just move gently from left to right without the cotton pad moving. You’d notice all the eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner is transfered to the cotton pad :). Refer picture below as well.

Gross. I know.

Turn the cotton pad to the other end which is unused and swipe eyelid gently to remove the remaining traces of eye makeup as well as brow.

Obviously it does! I absolutely like this eye makeup remover very much that I bought another bottle at last year’s beauty fair.

1) Pricey (RM98) but huge bottle of 125ml.
2) Removes waterproof makeup completely. Even Coffret D’Or stubborn liquid eyeliner. Phew!
3) Doesn’t irritate eyes. Suitable for contact lens wearer.
4) No eyelashes fall out.

Definitely yes. This will be my main eye makeup remover but I will also stray to other brand just to try out.
