Not only has my skin become very sensitive in the past year, but my eyes have also joined in on that sensitivity fun train as well. And that sensitivity makes it hard for me to wear eye makeup. It’s not the makeup that bothers my eyes(at least most of the time), it’s the makeup removers that irritate my eyes to no end. Almost every eye makeup remover I’ve tried bothers my eyes so much. My eyes itch and water for days after removing eye makeup. It’s not fun. So, most days I keep my eye makeup to a minimum, or just wear none at all so that I don’t have to deal with the after-effects.
But I’ve finally found an eye makeup remover that doesn’t bother me! It’s Klorane Floral Eye Makeup Remover Lotion With Soothing Cornflower($17.25).
History Timey that involves Saints! I went to a Catholic School run by Ukrainian nuns until grade 8, and honestly I loved learning about the Saints and their trials and tribulations. And Cornflower plays a special part at Klorane Laboratories, as it’s medicinal properties have been used for centuries. Cornflower was first mentioned by Saint Hilgarde in the 12th century to relieve tired and irritated eyes. The blue colour of cornflower resembled healthy looking eyes, so the plant was used to treat eye conditions. It was a symbol of crystal-clear vision, so the cornflower was nicknamed “casse-lunette” in France, meaning break the glasses. Klorane Laboratories are tradition loving botanists and researchers looking for increasingly innovative plant-based active ingredients. So, it was only natural that the cornflower be used in their sensitive eye care range.
Klorane Floral Eye Makeup Remover Lotion With Soothing Cornflower is very gentle with a high content in cornflower extract to soothe sensitive eyes, and is even safe for contact lens wearers. It easily removes make-up and leaves a really nice feeling of freshness. The skin around my eyes is soothed and decongested, and my vision never gets blurry. My eyes never feel irritated at all when I use it. It’s become a staple for me and sits on my bathroom counter 24/7. LOVE it.
Oh, and another great thing about Klorane Floral Eye Makeup Remover Lotion With Soothing Cornflower is that you can use it as an eye compress if your eyes are feeling heavy and tired and irritated! Just poor some onto a couple of cotton pads and put them on your eyes for about 10 minutes or so. Cornflower HEAVEN. Thanks, Saint Hilgarde! 😉

What’s YOUR favourite eye makeup remover? It’s a fine line for me-if a makeup remover is too oily, then my eyes can’t get rid of that oily film that’s left very well. And some micellar waters just aren’t strong enough to take of every last inch of mascara. This Klorane eye makeup remover WORKS for me!
