Boots Botanics All Bright Soothing Eye Makeup Remover

I’m always game for an affordable, easy to obtain eye makeup remover. This one from Boots first appeared in my haul.

From the website:

“This two-phase eye make up remover uses dual layer technology. The oil phase effectively sweeps away impurities and make-up , dissolving waterproof formulations with ease, while the aqueous phase helps to soothe and calm the eye area.

Hibiscus is nature’s brightness booster. Natural AHA’s from the flower act as mild exfoliators to help leave skin smoother and brighter.

Our beauty scientists have worked with the world experts in plant science at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (England) to bring you beautiful, plant-powered skincare that’s proven to work.

We’ve taken steps to reduce our impact on the planet at every stage in this product’s journey.”

I have to shake up the bottle before pouring out a little on a cotton pad. It removes my eyeshadow and concealer, but is quite weak against my eyeliner and mascara. I have to swipe a few times across my lashline to remove the product, and even there there is some residual eyeliner.

It is not stinging and is gentle on my eyes. It leaves behind a slightly oily feel that can be easily removed with a mild cleanser.

I would skip this if I were you. There are better eye makeup removers on the market.

    It’s too bad this leaves an oily residue. I haven’t seen this in Canada. Thanks for your review.

  2. I would have thought it would sting, given that it claims it contains acids.
