Affordable Eye Makeup Remover for Sensitive Eyes (with demo too!)

Recently I have been trying to use organic products on my skin because my skin is very sensitive. Not everything of my skin care products are organic, but they are at least safe for my skin. I was almost running out of my MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover; It is such a great product and I have been loving it so much, but it gets kinda pricy for an eye makeup remover ($19), especially it is an oil based remover, so it can clog your pores if it gets onto your face.

Then I saw this new facial brand from UK called Simple at CVS, and it attracted me because it is said on the bottle "Sensitive Skin Experts." I picked up its eye makeup remover which is said it is kind to eyes because there is no harsh ingredients, no oil, no dye, no perfume, and no animal derived ingredients. This eye makeup remover also contains Pro Vitamin B5 that helps to restore, soften and smooth, and it is perfect for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, and for even removing waterproof mascara. Moreover, it is hypoallergenic and comedogenic means it won't make you breaking out. You can trust this product because it has been tested by dermatologist and opthalmologist.

I like to moisten my cotton pad with it, and let it sit on my closed eyes for five seconds, then I wipe off gently (I am showing you the demo down below on the way I do it). I really like the feeling of it, it really gives you that "fresh and calm" feeling on your eyes. I cannot even feel what goes into my eyes, it just exactly feels like water. It works efficiently, gets rid of every single eye makeup, and doesn't irritate my eyes. To be honest, my eye makeup won't be completely off after the first swipe, but I still can use whatever left on the cotton pad, and wipe off the rest of it. I simply do not mind of this flaw because it just takes a few seconds to get rid of everything, and  I don't think there is an eye makeup remover that wipes off completely in just one swipe.

Overall, I like the Simple Eye Makeup Remover because it is great for sensitive eyes (you do not need to have sensitive eyes to use this, if you have non-sensitive eyes, this one works for you too!) and there is no harsh chemicals that can upset my skin.

I got mine at CVS for $7.99.

Let it sit for a few seconds, then wipe it off gently, don't rub.

After one swipe, as you can see there still has a little bit of mascara left and eyeliner.  Keep wiping it off gently, not necessary to add more product on your cotton pad.

DONE! It is so clean and refreshing
