While fluffing around the personal care section at Myer Melbourne i was in desperate need of a replacement eye makeup remover. I had run out of mine and rather than go straight to priceline in my lunch break like i had planned , i for some reason turned right instead of left and somehow ended up face first in a ham & cheese croissant at laurent. Oops.

Now i had finished work, priceline had closed and i knew (so couldn’t remember if i did or not) i didn’t have any eye makeup remover to use that night. Then i spotted the Innoxa super sensitive eye makeup remover and though “oh how perfect, you my dear can home with me” and off to the register i went.

Innoxa say:

The fresh cooling lotion uses gentle skin-caring Aloe Vera & Coconut Oil-Derivative to help leave the skin clean, soothed and revived. For All Skin Types including Sensitive. Dermatologically Approved. Fragrance Free.

Madam M says:

Suitable for sensitive eyes…. piglets. Unfortunately this really stung my eyes. It wasn’t every single time i used it but lets say it stung my eyes more times than it didn’t. I don’t wear waterproof mascara so i though this would have been effective enough to remove my mascara no problems considering it says it does. Nope not at all.

You need a lot of this product to have any effect at all. I always soak a cotton pad in the solution, hold it for 30 seconds and then start to remove. This unfortunately as much as i left the solution to “soak” it didn’t make a difference.

i usually prefer to use bi-phase solutions but i thought id have a go at this as it say it was suitable for sensitive eyes and mine have become a bit sensitive of late.

I have now finally finished this product. Sadly i will not be repurchasing this.

Have you tried this eye makeup remover? Have you tried an eye make remover that didn’t quite meet your expectations?
