Garnier Clean Sensitive Eye Make-Up Remover



Now, I don't have 'sensitive eyes', but like any eyes they do need to be taken care of. That is why it's important to have a great eye make-up remover.

The questions you need to answer in order to find a good eye make-up remover are as follows:
  • Does it uncomfortably sting your eyes if it gets in your eye?
  • Does it leave your eyes red or puffy?
  • Does it remover make-up easily or do you need to rub your eyes in order to remove make-up?
  • Will it remove water-proof mascaras and eyeliners?
  • Is it designed just for eyes?
  • Is it Ophthalmologically tested?
Garnier Clean Sensitive Delicate Eye Make-Up Remover ticks off only two of the requirements for eye make-up removers.

It stings. It's not a horrible sting but it does sting your eyes if it gets in your eye. If it stings for me, someone who doesn't have sensitive eyes, I can't imagine how it would feel for someone who does have sensitive eyes. The stinging lasts about 3-4 minutes.

It left my eyes slightly red and the veins in my eyes were more prominent for about an hour after use.

It definitely would not remove water proof mascara, even if I soaked my eye it would not come off. It did remove all traces of eyeshadow and eyebrow pencil though.

The points that it does pass in is that it is Ophthalmologically tested and is designed just for eyes.

I won't continue to use this product.


Here's the rundown:

Price - $6.95 for 150ml
Score - 10/10 - Compared to other leading brands.
Removal - Eyeshadow and pencils only, won't remove mascara or water-proof mascara.
Score - 4/10
Feel - It mildly stings your eyes and is uncomfortable. Leaves eyes slightly red.
Score - 4/10
Residue - Soft eyes, not oily, feels clean.
Score - 9/10

General Comments: While it's a good price, it doesn't work to a good enough extend to be worth the money. It's uncomfortable and won't remove mascara, two big no-no's in my book.


SCORE: 5.5/10
