Make up remover for sensitive skin.

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Title says it all really. I have horribly, horribly sensitive eyes and even the normal stuff for sensitive skin (I'm using Clean & Clear right now and it's killing my eyes, I've tried the Johnson's pads and the Witch wipes, all of them make my eyes sting) makes them feel like they're being ripped out.

Is there anything out there, or am I just resigned to pain?

    Try Lush's Ultra Bland cleanser. I love it, it's like cleaning your face with honey.
    I went to Lush the other day, totally should have posted this before then :p.

    That sooooooooo didn't agree with my face at all. I felt like I was still wearing it even after I'd washed it off!

    Try a bit of olive oil on a pad and then wash your face as normal.

    I will have to :p.

    Rach - they have the wipe things, I haven't tried them but I'd prefer a bottle really 'cause it's more cost-effective :/.

    They do a bottle too, not that I've tried it but I do use a lot of their products.

    I use Cocoa Butter to remove eye make up. Apparently you can use vaseline too. I find that better than any of the more specialist products I've tried.

    Simples eye make-up remover (you can get it in a bottle) is very gentle, and can remove waterproof mascara, kohl and black eye-shadow (when worn together)

    Yeh, I saw that today (they didn't have it when I looked in the Braintree Boots, but they did here) but the Boots own one was cheaper so I'm trying that first.
