On The 11th Day Of Blogmas - Garnier Make Up Remover Review // Blogmas 2014



I don't know why make up remover is becoming an up hill battle for most people, including myself. It's a simple product that should (technically) do what it says on the bottle. However, after years of buying different brands, methods and products i'm still no further in my quest to find the perfect one.

I bought this purifying gel from Garnier around two months ago in the hope that it would be my saving grace. I've never used a make up remover where you apply it to your fingers and then directly to the face without a cotton pad so it was a whole new experience for me.

I wear heavy eyeliner and mascara, more specifically Benefit They're Real mascara which is notorious for being hard to remove so in all fairness, i didn't know what to expect. My first impression when i started to rub it into the eye area was that it felt horrible, it was foaming up and felt slightly greasy. It also stung my eyes and when a product claims to be gentle on eyes, you don't expect to be flapping about looking for a flannel to clear the offending product.

Did it remove my make up? Kind of. I ended up with big panda eyes where it had removed the majority of eyeshadow and eyeliner but only some of the mascara. When i woke up the next morning, i would find the dreaded morning eye crease where the remaining make up had seeped down.

This product was a complete let down for me and i won't be repurchasing. I guess my quest for the ultimate make up remover continues.
