Waterproof Mascara removal - try this Nivea Eye Make Up Remover


The other day I went to remove my eye make up with my usual micellar water and found that it wouldn't budge.  Well, the eye shadow did, the mascara didn't.  It took about five minutes for me to realise that I'd inadvertently put a waterproof Max Factor mascara on that morning, instead of my usual 2000 Calorie.   Durr.  This was annoying on two counts, one, because I thought I'd picked up a non waterproof one in the shop and clearly I hadn't and two, I was really tired and now I was going to have to faff about getting this off, for god's sake.

I tried unsuccessfully with two eye make up removers, a MAC and a Clarins, usually the Clarins is good unfortunately the Max Factor waterproof was too stubborn for it, either that or I'd layered it on too thick so it was going to take a chisel to get it off.  I was getting cross now.  Then I remembered my trusty Nivea.

Well, the thing is that I've been meaning to review this eye makeup remover for a while now, because I am seriously impressed with it.  Originally, I bought it because I started wearing a waterproof eyeliner that did not come off with any of my usual nightly skincare products, then I spied this which I thought would work because it is for waterproof mascara.

Bingo!  Nivea Daily Essentials Eye Make up Remover to the rescue!

Two quick wipes and the mascara started to move (I was relieved as my eyes were starting to feel sore).

This make up remover is hypoallergenic and has been tested by the eye doctors, thus is fine for people who wear contact lenses or who have sensitive eyes.  As you can see from the photo it is oil based so you need to give the bottle a good old shake before you use it to mix up the liquid.  Then just get one of those little make up remover pads, pour a little bit on there (a little bit goes a long way) and gently wipe over the eye lid and round the eye.  I am always amazed at how much make up comes off with one of these, even when I've cleansed already, this really does get rid of whatever's left.  It's really nice to go to bed knowing that my eyes are "clean". 

I'm trying to remember how much I paid for this, I think it was £3.50 maybe £4.  Either way, it wasn't a lot and it's a very good product and definitely worth purchasing if you're a waterproof mascara or make up person, there's no faffing about and it doesn't make your eyes sore.
