Pinch punch first of the month and all that! I’m especially perky this morning knowing I am one step closer to my birthday as it’s now my birthday month hooray! I have no plans as of yet so not sure why I’m so excited but it does mean the possibility of presents is close and I’ve been such a good girl this year….haaaaaaaa.
Anyway onto more important matters: panda eyes.
Nobody likes a human with black rings around their entire eyes, they need to stay with the pandas.
I’m a big fan of the No7 Eye make up remover especially when they have the £5 off vouchers and you can pick it up for a STEAL at £3.
But sometimes………I’m that lazy that shaking up the oil and water solutions is just too much.
This was when I realised that hastily using up all of my mini Bioderma bottles was not quite such a savvy idea and I knew that, not being able to afford Bioderma at the mo, I needed to find a cheaper alternative and fast.
I’d heard multiple things about this L’oreal Micellar Solution and also of a Garnier one but as this was the first one I saw in Boots it was hastily added to my basket.
It’s got quite simple packaging and although its simple it is what I prefer. Perfume bottles can be snazzy and displayed on a desk….make up remover is not quite in the same category!
This claims to be a 3 in 1 product whereby it removes make up, tones and soothes skin all in one swipe of product. It contains no alcohol or perfume and is hypo allergneic so props to L’Oreal for getting all of that sorted.
You can use it as a general make up remover or a toner and apply it using cotton wool pads onto the skin and wiping away the excess. I personally like to remove my make up with a face wipe, cleanse my face, and then remove the final traces of eye make up with this product.
I find that’s the least harsh way to get all of the mascara and liner away from my sensitive eyes without scrubbing away at them and making it worse, and also it does remove make up from my lashes which seem to hold onto product for DAYS. Not a good look girls!
As I said the snap top is nice and handy, easy to dispense and actually does stop product from flying everywhere when you knock it off your dressing table (as I do most days).
I’ve been pretty impressed with the product since I bought it and use it most days to remove eye make up. After a night out I’ve also used it on a heavily stained red lip and it worked pretty well on that too.
I do still like the No7 oil/water eye make up remover but this has also won a place in my cupboards. I’ve used this to quickly clean eye make up brushes in between applications too which is always handy, especially with eye liners which you shouldn’t leave to dry….
This retails at £4.99 from Boots and is currently on their 3 for 2 hair/skin/body/cosmetics etc etc deal which sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me! Get shopping ladies!
