Have repurchased this twice now. It's not a good eye makeup remover tbh, I have to do a fair amount of rubbing, which I know is bad. But, it is so refreshing on itchy, tired eyes and seems to calm them and help my scary dark circles. Even when I'm seriously sleep-deprived I look better than I should. It stops my dark circles getting really horrific. Plus it's hydrating & leaves skin less wrinkled looking compared to my other HG, Simple eye makeup remover. I also have zero lash fallout with this. My lashes feel conditioned.
I really like this treatment. Personally I don't use it for make up removal because I use it after my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and toner, so my skin is already clean when I apply it. It instantly cools down and revives tired, puffy eyes and makes me feel a lot more awake. It's fantastic left in the fridge in the summer for extra cooling benefits!
I used this product twice a day everyday until my bottle was gone but I felt it made no difference to my eyes, morning or night. I applied it with cotton wool pads and dabbed it around my eye area, or held it to my eyes to no avail.
Wow - this is like 8 hours sleep in a bottle! Ideal for when you've had a late night or one too many rose wines. Just soak a couple of cotton pads and leave for five minutes...your poor partied out peepers will be transformed to create a bright, wide eyed look.
Great for removing the remaining traces of last night's hard to shift mascara too. A fab little product.
I don't understand the good reviews for this product. This is merely witch hazel toner, marketed as a soothing, eye brightening treatment! Firstly, how can a liquid that is not applied to the eyes make them feel soothed and appear brighter. This will not help soothe tired or red, itchy eyes. And please beware of soaking cotton pads with this product (as recommended by Liz Earle) and placing on or under the eyes. I did this and left the cotton pads under my eyes for about 5-10 minutes and when I removed the pads, I had extreme redness and irritation on the skin around and underneath my eyes. Again, I do not know what on earth a company is thinking when they use an irritating astringent like witch hazel in an eye treatment product. This was disappointing as I generally like Liz Earle products.
*EDIT* - While I still stand by my original review in terms of this product being irritating if left for too long around the eye area (due to witch hazel), I have to change my rating from 2 to 3 lippies. I've found that this is a really good "toner" for the eyes, and I now use it first thing in the morning when I wake up to tone the area around my eyes. It's a very handy and refreshing product in that regard!
Great product, recommended if you got tired, itchy and red eyes, especially when you don't get much sleep or spend 12 hours daily in front of the computer. I usually pour it on cotton pads and place on my eyes for 1 or 2 minutes evening or morning, just to soothe and/or de-puff my eyes.
It also removes the residue of yesterday's eye makeup.
As much as I loved its soothing and de-puffing properties, I wouldn't repurchase because of the 'bad' ingredients.
Aqua (water), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, PEG-60 almond glycerides, Glycerin, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Decyl glucoside, Panthenol, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower) extract,
Euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) extract, Potassium sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Polyaminopropyl biguanide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium methylparaben, Sodium propylparaben.
I like this product. I use it every morning to remove the residue of lastnight's make-up.
This is a really really good product. It is a lovely gentle yet effective eye make up remover and quite the best treatment for tired, dry, dull eyes if soaked into cotton wool pads and applied for a few minutes. It unfailingly improves the brightness of the whites and any dryness / puffiness or morning lines.
A real life saver to have in the bathroom cabinet and one I wouldn't want to be without. Wish I'd discovered it long ago.
I suppose as an eye makeup remover it is pricey but as it doubles up as a treatment that actually works I consider it a real bargain.
This wipes every parts of my eye make up gently without that stingy feeling. My HG eye makeup remover.
This is expensive for what it is but I find it is so worth it. I had eye surgery a number of months ago and find the area around my eyes can be very puffy and stingy in the mornings especially. This just soothes my eyes and takes that horrible puffy feeling away. It also removes any residue of eye makeup I have missed the night before. I must try leaving a cotton pad soaked in it in the fridge overnight. I'm sure that must really waken tired, swollen, sore eyes up!
