Save or Splurge: Eye Makeup Remover

Am still using my £3.30 Essence mascara. Like it. Lots ‘o lash. But boy is it a pain to remove. Clings on like a waterproof mascara. Requires rubbing. Effort.

My balm cleansers are not man enough for the job. It needs the double, a dedicated eye makeup remover, then the balm. So I called in the trusty Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips. And it does a great job. But I’ve whipped through the entire bottle in a few short weeks.

A bottle used to last me months, I used it so infrequently. Using a £3.30 mascara that needs a £17 eye makeup remover is just bad beauty maths. Something needs to change.

Enter the Nivea Double Effects Eye Makeup Remover. It was on offer at Superdrug, £1.75, so thought I’d try it out. And blow me. It’s easily as good as the Clinique. Easy, gentle, fast. For £1.75. A tenth of the price. What have I been doing all this time.

Am making the permanent switch. Vote save.

Nivea Double Effects Eye Makeup Remover, currently £1.75 at Superdrug (usual price £3.59), here.

Til next time,
