Kiehl’s is a brand that instantly comes to mind whenever I think of ‘luxury skincare’. Both my mum and I are huge fans of the brand – my mum particularly loves the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream which I reviewed on my blog at the beginning of the year. I recently got my hands on a few goodies from Kiehl’s and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Kiehl’s Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.
I normally use the Garnier Micellar Water to remove my eye makeup as it’s both gentle and really effective. However, I don’t feel like it has any particular skincare benefits and doesn’t feel particularly moisturising on the skin. It basically does the job, but I do prefer when my skincare products have a few added benefits and help to pamper my skin.
At £17.50, the Kiehl’s Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is quite pricey compared to my usual makeup remover. It is described as a “lightweight and non-greasy lotion, specifically designed to gently remove eye makeup without stripping or stinging the delicate eye area” and contains cooling cucumber gel, antioxidants and nourishing apricot kernel oil. The area around your eyes is very delicate, and there’s nothing worse than an eye makeup remover which stings or the skin around your eyes feeling tight.
I have been using the product over the last month, and I can honestly say I have been so impressed by it! Firstly, it does feel really gentle on the eyes and I experienced no stinging with this, yet it still manages to effectively remove all of my eye makeup, including the notoriously hard-to-remove Benefit They’re Real Mascara. Once every trace of makeup has been removed, the product leaves the skin feeling very soft – kind of like you’ve just applied a moisturiser, which I really love. Having said that, I believe this would work better on normal-to-dry skin types rather than oily skin.
The Kiehl’s Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is a brilliant product if you’re looking to treat yourself to an eye makeup remover which leaves your skin feeling pampered.
