Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover



Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover (125ml): £17

Recently featured in my March Favourites video, the Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover has quickly reached must-have status for me. It's a bi-phase lotion, which means it's part liquid, part oil and needs shaking up. Once activated, this makes removing even the most stubborn waterproof mascara an absolute breeze.

I use around a £2 coin sized amount on a cotton pad for each eye, and hold it firmly over the area for about 10-20 seconds before gently wiping away any makeup. It does take a few minutes to get everything off properly but it's so much easier and definitely a lot less harsh on my skin than other cleansers as it's oil based. It's not exactly cheap by almost hitting the £20 mark, and I've used a bottle up in around 6 weeks, but I can't see myself buying anything else as I've enjoyed using this so much. I've currently run out of the stuff so I'm desperate to take a trip to my nearest Clarins counter to pick up a replacement! I do only use this on the eye area because of the price, and since I have other cleansers for elsewhere on my face which work fine. This is just so effortless and makes removing my makeup just as therapeutic as I find applying it.

All in all I can't recommend this enough- it doesn't irritate the eye but is so impressive in its makeup removal. Another factor I really like (which could just be down to the oil in the product) is that my lashes feel so nice and silky when I use this, so it actually seems like it's helping them look better even without any mascara. Absolutely huge thumbs up for this, and it's something I can honestly see myself buying again, and again, and again..

Have you ever tried the Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover? Are you a fan of the brand?

  2. Have you tried the Maybelline Eye & Lips Remover? That one works pretty well, too! And for a fraction of price! x :)

  7. This sounds so fab but I find it so hard spending so much on skincare if it's not going to last! You're being so persuasive!

  8. You HAVE to try the maybelline clean express for waterproof makeup! I was skeptical as I had bought the clarins one too but it's actually better AND it's oil free! I don't know how but it's amazing and it's a lot less harsh on the bank.

  9. I really like Clarins but I'd never buy an eye makeup remover because I don't like spending a lot of money on something so simple (although to me haha). You can make an eye makeup remover with olive oil and water, super simple and works just as well :D

    Great post!

  10. I've never tried this or anything else from the Clarins brand but it seems pretty expensive when it's only removing eye makeup. I personally prefer to use something like Philosophy's Purity Made Simple which removes face and eye makeup.

  11. I've read alot about this, I love eye makeup removers with oil since its so easy to take off all eye makeup...but that price is just crazy!

  12. Any makeup remover that can take off waterproof mascara is a good choice for me! The formula makeup sounds really nice, too.

  13. I could do with a new eye makeup remover. I got a Decleor one, and I kind of dont like it. I may try this. Plus it's cute and blue!

  16. wanted this for a while now, this review has totally convinced me to get this stuff! it's expensive so i recommend waiting for debenhams and their 10% off beauty events (one's coming up in mid May). not a massive saving but it's summat!

  21. i need need need this! it sounds wonderful! i've never thought about using a different product to remove make up from my eyes and most of the time just wash my face with the same product all over. but this has convinced me to give something else a go! it sounds absolutely lovely and effortless! little wary of the price tag but with a review as positive as this i think it would be worth it! :) X

  22. I'm a really big fan of clarins. I use loads of their skin care products and I love this eye make up remover. I find a lot if removers can make my eyes water - not in a stingy way but as though product has gotten into my eye but I don't have that problem with this. I think it's Wyeth the price tag!

  24. Hmmm...interesting. I always wanted a good eye makeup remover and I think this is what I am looking for. I am gonna give it a try.

  25. This is on my wish list. Bioderma really doesn't get off waterproof mascara and I got bored of the Clinique bi-phase eye makeup remover that I used to use.
