Boots No. 7 Advent Calendar (2014) Review: Day 11.

Today it’s Beautiful Skin (hypoallergenic) eye makeup remover for all skin types.

day 11 main

It claims to have a gentle dual action which conditions while it cleanses. It also claims to remove all traces of eye makeup including waterproof mascara.

As you can see from the photo, it’s very oily. You have to shake it really well before use in order to mix the oil/water elements properly.

It is effective and does what it claims to do but you have to rub quite hard to remove all traces of eyeliner and (particularly waterproof) mascara. Doing that left my eyes a little red!

Also, as it is so oily it leaves a lot of oil on your skin. If you don’t tend to use toner after you cleanse (you should!) then at the very least you should run a clean cotton wool pad over your face after using this, otherwise you’ll be leaving a lot of oil sitting there which won’t do your skin much good.

I have a bottle of No. 7 Cleanse & Care eye makeup remover I bought quite some time ago. It was discontinued but this seems to be the same product! It looks and smells the same and makes similarly worded claims on the packaging. It has to be same rebranded/repackaged so if you liked that, you’ll like this!

The bottle has lasted ages as you only need a little. It represents good value for money at £8.50 per 100ml.

Amazability factor: 8/10 (effective)
