Melvita Soothing Eye Make-up Remover

I don’t generally bother with an eye make up remover; I find that my usual micellar cleansers take off all my eye make-up including waterproof mascara. But I’ve recently starting using a waterproof gel eyeliner, and even my beloved Bioderma cleanser can’t budge it. Which is where Melvita Soothing Eye Make-up Remover comes in.

As a contact lens wearer, who is often wearing said lenses when removing make up, I need something that doesn’t sting or leave a greasy film around the eye socket. Since I started using this a few months ago, it’s replaced all my other eye make-up removers. It contains aloe vera to help to protect the  eye contour, uses olive squalene  to  cleanse away make-up and impurities, and claims cornflower water, chamomile and lotus help to reduce swelling around the eye area.

Melvita is a French brand that trades on its organic reputation, but I’d check the labels: 99.24% of the total ingredients are from natural origin, but in realith this means absolutely bugger all – plenty of chemicals can be said to come from natural origins. It’s the 39.76% of the total ingredients that are from organic farming that is important. Still, 39.76% is better than 0%.

Thank you for recommending this product. I shall trot off to the shops to buy it. I’ve been using the Sephora brand so far to remove my waterproof mascara (also being too lazy to look for something else as it works just fine for me), but prefer to give a try to a product of more natural origins.

Thank you so much for recommending this! I ordered it from John Lewis immediately and it is the only make up remover I have ever used that’s successfully got rid of my Dior mascara!
