Garnier Simply Essentials 2 in 1 Face and Eye Makeup Remover Review

I'm back, I know its been a while. Here's a product review for you all of a very affordable makeup remover.

I usually just use my Olay Total Effects Cleanser to remove my makeup, but recently with the unusually hot weather in the U.K. I've been using more waterproof makeup and this just doesn't cut it to take off waterproof makeup. I was walking past the skincare aisle in Morrisons and I came across this Garnier makeup remover and thought why not give it a go. 

As you may know from previous posts, I do have dry, sometimes sensitive skin and my eyes can become irritated very quickly. I have to say this stuff is amazing. It does not irritate my eyes at all and removes all eye makeup including waterproof mascara and eyeliner easier with minimal eyelash shedding (which is a big problem for me when removing waterproof mascara). 

A small splash of this solution goes a long way. Just shake up the bottle to mix the blue and white solutions, apply to a cotton pad and swipe over the face. Easy. 

If you don't like oil based makeup removers, this may not be for you. Although it does not leave behind as much oil as other oil based makeup removers you can definitely feel some residue on your face left behind. I'm not too fussed about this, you can always just wipe this away with a clean cotton pad, or like me just wash your face afterwards. 

I bought this on offer at Morrisons of £1.99, which I think is a bargin but I've found it cheaper online at Superdrug for £1.49. If you're looking for something to take off that long wearing makeup, I'd say give this a go. 

Price- 5/5 (at £1.49 how can you go wrong)
Smell- 4/5 (this product has a general clean non offensive smell)
Effectiveness 5/5 (gets all of my makeup off quickly
Texture 3/5 (marks lost as it states on the back it does no leave any residue, I think it does)

What's your favourite way of removing your makeup?
