Review of Simple Conditioning Eye Make-Up Remover by theminx
I'm attracted Simple products because they're free of perfumes and colourants and claim to be gentle. Which is great, because I need something gentle yet effective for an eye make-up remover. This is a clear water-like cleanser that claims to remove waterproof mascara. I haven't tried it with waterproof mascara, but it did remove long-lasting formulas like Mac Fluidlines very easily. In fact I did a really dramatic smokey eye recently using Urban Decay Primer Potion, Mac Pigments, Mac Fluidlines, Urban Decay glitter eyeliner and lashings of Diorshow mascara - and it removed everything pretty easily, including the glitter.
It didn't budge Mac Liquidlast though, which is a waterproof liquid eyeliner. Other than this, just a couple of swipes cleaned makeup away easily. Skin was a little dry/taught after, but I always apply an eye cream so this isn't a big concern for me. Great product for the price.
EDIT: I've downgraded this from 4 to 1 star because it started stinging my eyes. My eyes hurt and got bloodshot after every use. Also, I switched from Diorshow to Hypnose (non-waterproof) mascara and this would not budge it. Overall this product appears to be selective about what can remove, which doesn't make it a good choice for an everyday cleanser.
