Review: La Roche-Posay Toleriane¦ Eye Makeup Remover

As some of you may know from my disappointing products blogpost, I have had some difficulty finding an eye makeup remover, for my ever-so sensitive eyes. After having a reaction to the Simple Eye Makeup Remover, I was on Twitter and asked for some recommendations for a good eye makeup remover for sensitive eyes. I got a reply from Elaine at Bespoke Beauty who recommended 'La Roche Posay's Toleriane' range and specifically their Eye Makeup Remover.

So off I went to Boots and picked up the La Roche Posay Toleriane Eye Makeup Remover. This is the first product I have tried from La Roche Posay and was excited to try it!

This box costs €15.67 from Boots and contains 30 individual doses/containers. Each dose is enough to do both eyes if you have light everyday makeup on, but if you have a full on, night-time eye makeup look, I tend to use 2 containers.

What I do is, empty the contents of 1 container onto a cotton pad, then place the damp cotton pad over my eye area. I leave it placed on my eye for 15-30 seconds, and my eye makeup dissolves off. I find that leaving the damp pad placed on the eye area for some time, allows the bulk of my eye makeup to come off.    With the remaining area of the damp pad, I begin to gently massage the eye area, where the remainder of my eye makeup comes off. Do remember that the skin around your eyes is very thin, and if you are to vigorously rub the area or tug at it, you can cause premature aging to the eye area (which is never a good thing!!).

Ta-da!! Eye makeup has been removed and no irritation to my ever-so sensitive eyes. I recommend this product for anyone who is looking for a new eye makeup remover, if you have sensitive eyes or if you have had a reaction to any eye makeup remover as this product is specifically for people with sensitive eyes. These individual doses/containers are so handy for travelling also! I have 3 containers left, and this full box of 30, has lasted my for a few months! I'll definitely be re-purchasing!

TOP TIP- I use these also to remove eye makeup from my false lashes. Removing old eye makeup keeps your false lashes in tip-top condition and when you go to use them again, they are nice and clean!

Let me know what eye makeup remover you use, especially if any of them are suited for sensitive eyes!!
