Removing eye makeup is the first important step in your nighttime beauty routine. At the end of even the busiest days, getting rid of makeup, pollution, sweat, excess sebum, and dead skin cells is vital for healthy-looking skin that appears smooth and clear, and visibly glows with radiance.
Using an eye makeup remover is one way to avoid causing extensive damage to your skin over time. When eye makeup is left on overnight, it can lead to serious eye issues such as infections, irritation, styes, and damaged eyelashes.
Start by soaking a cotton pad with product then press gently over eyelids for 10 seconds to dissolve eye makeup. Gently sweep down along lashes from root to tip, without rubbing. Now sweep up along the underside of lashes, lifting them as you go. Next, fold the cotton pad and—following the natural direction of lymphatic circulation—gently move the pad toward the outer corner of the eye. Repeat using a fresh cotton pad for the other eye.
Clarins’ best eye makeup removers do more for your skin than simply erasing the day’s makeup. Refreshing Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover effortlessly dissolves light-to-medium eye makeup and helps to eliminate impurities while the plant power of Organic Cornflower and Organic Rose floral waters help to visibly soothe, soften, and moisturize skin’s appearance. This ultra-gentle, oil-free makeup remover contains D-Panthenol to help visibly condition the lashes and it won't tug, sting, or irritate even the most sensitive eyes.
To remove heavy or water-resistant makeup, look no farther than Instant Eye Make-Up Remover. The dual-phase formula erases heavy or water-resistant makeup while caring for the skin with a combination of ultra-fine oils and Organic Cornflower and Organic Rose floral waters.
