Taking makeup off at the end of a long and stressful day feels wonderful. When all you want to do is tumble into a warm and cosy bed the last thing you feel like doing is spending ages taking off eye makeup.
I have tried a few eye makeup removers, from creams to liquids to wipes and cleansing waters. I would have to say my least favourite method were the wipes, infact I only tried them a few times before switching back to my trusty Oil of Olay cream.
I saw a lot of reviews on L'oreal's 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil, so when I saw it on offer in Boots I had to give it a whirl. I believe it retails for around £7.99 full price.
The product is dispensed by a pump and two - three pumps is sufficient to take off all my eye makeup including waterproof mascara. I wouldn't quite say it takes 15 seconds to remove my eye makeup, but it still takes less time than using a cream or a wipe.
After using the oil on my eyes I splash water all over my face and continue with my normal skin care routine, which includes a foaming cream cleanser - at the moment I am using a brilliant one from Benefit.
I do find the oil does make up eyes feel a tad, well, oily! Even after washing with a cleanser, so I find using some optrex eyedrops afterwards, just a couple of drops before bed sorts me out. I find using brightening eye drops a great way to refresh dry and tired eyes after a long day at work anyway.
What do you think? Have you tried this product before? If so, what did you think?
