Boots Botanics All Bright Soothing Eye Make-up Remover

I popped into Boots a couple of weeks back and was having a little wander around as you do, when their own Botanics range jumped out at me!  I think it has had a recent revamp and it was on offer so I stopped in my tracks and had a little look.  I had been after a new eye make-up remover to try so I thought this one looked really lovely and so for £2.66 (usually £3.99) it went in my basket!  I have really sensitive eyes when it comes to skin products so I usually have to be careful.  Given that Botanics boast nothing but natural plant extracts I was hoping to be safe with this one!

Boots Botanics All Bright Soothing Eye Make-up Remover - £3.99
Suitable for all skin types, this eye make-up remover is actually in two layers/phases; a clear oil phase and an aqueous phase, with which you have to shake vigorously to activate before use (there's something about products you have to shake to activate that suck me right in! - don't really understand why, I'm just weird).  The oil aims to remove the tough make-up (even waterproof mascara), whilst the aqueous phase (which has a slight tint to it's colour due to the hibiscus) soothes and conditions the eye area and lashes.

My opinion?
I absolutely LOVE this product and honestly can't see why I wouldn't buy it again.  Even at full price, £3.99 is an absolute bargain for a decent eye make-up remover if you compare it to the likes of Clarins.  I have to say I haven't tried it with waterproof mascara yet as I very rarely use it, but it doesn't even struggle in the slightest to take off normal mascara - it literally glides off.  I have read quite a few reviews on this since buying it about how people are annoyed at Botanics because they have completely changed the formula!  It does have a slightly oily residue but I actually love the way it feels.  It makes my eyes feel so soothed and doesn't sting in the slightest!

All in all, I really really can't rave about this any more! Bargain, readily available in most Boots stores and currently still on offer.  What are you waiting for?

Also... just noticed that this has been listed as one of the Top 12 Eye Make-up Removers on Cosmopolitan. BOOOM! http://www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/beauty-hair/news/trends/beauty-products/cosmos-best-eye-make-up-removers-beauty-lab?page=5
