Review : Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Makeup Remover for Waterproof Makeup

This has become my new favorite eye makeup remover! I love it even more than my L'Oreal Gentle Lip and Eye Makeup Remover for Waterproof Makeup, which was my holy grail eye makeup remover until now!! There are several reasons why the Garnier one has become my new holy grail, but I'll explain them later! First, let's see how it looks like:

It comes in a clear plastic bottle with a cap that holds 200ml of product! Not bad, I like the facr that it's a clear bottle, so you can see exactly how much product you have left, but I'd prefer a pump or something like that, because now you just open the cap and you pour some of the eye makeup remover on a cotton pad, so you lose product and it gets messy if you're not careful ! A pump would be great, dear Garnier do you hear me???

The actual product is a duo phase one, the top blue phase is an oil based eye makeup remover and the bottom clear phase is a toning and refreshing lotion! Although it says it's an oil based eye makeup remover, it doesn't leave any oily residue on my skin, yet it removes everything, from regular eyeshadow with an eyeshadow base underneath to waterproof mascara and long-staying eyeliner! I have oily skin and oily eyelids, so I use lots of waterproof/long-staying products along with an eyeshadow primer to make sure that everything will stay in place for hours! This stuff removes everything!!!

So, how do you use it? It's simple! You shake it up, so that the two phases mix up and then you pour some on a cotton pad, hold it gently on your eyelid for a few seconds, so that the eye makeup will start breaking down, and then start wiggling it (gently, gently, gently!) until everything is removed! It usually takes me 3 cotton pads for both eyes, 1 cotton pad for each eye and then a third cotton pad to remove any possible residue! If you don't use lots of products or lots of waterproof/long-staying products you'll be totally fine using 2 cotton pads soaked in this eye makeup remover!

This eye makeup remover is suitable for sensitive skin, as it's fragrance free, alchohol free and oil free! All these claims are true, it doesn't have any scent, it doesn't burn/irritate my eyes or make them blurry (I hate that) in case it gets into my eyes, and it doesn't break me out or feel oily on my skin!  It contains plants extracts and soothing vitamin B5! It definitely feels soothing and refreshing, I love using it! You can also use it on your face (I've tried it) , so it would be really handy to take it with you on holiday, instead of carrying 500 different bottles! lol ! ;)

Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Makeup Remover for Waterproof Makeup retails for about 6.50Euros here in Greece, but sometimes you can find it on sale (I recently got it at -1.50Euros off!!) ! I believe it's a great eye makeup remover, the price is nice, I just wish they had a pump with it! :) You can find this at most drugstores and super markets! :)

  1. I took this with me on my holiday and you are right, this removes easily my make up without leaving my eyes or face oily. It works great with my sensitive eyes, I used this every night for a week and I'm very satisfied! I tried it with waterproof mascara and with a little patience works great too. Thanks so much for suggesting it!

  2. @Natalie You're welcome! :) I'm so glad you like it!! ;) If you let the cotton pad on your eye for a few seconds and then gently massage it on your eye it will break down the waterproof mascara quite easily! ;)
