Recently I’ve been finding that constant scrubbing and rubbing of my eye area with my usual cleanser and flannel combination has left my eyes looking red and feeling sore and sensitive. I’m extremely lazy when it comes to makeup removal, I always do it, and I love the skincare steps which follow but taking off makeup always seems such a tedious job and I often wish someone would just create a magic way for it to come off, leaving my skin clean and nourished.
I’ve been trying out the Amphora Aromatics Refreshing Eye Gel* of late, using it to take off all of my eye makeup. The idea is that this product is applied onto the eyes and removed using a cotton pad, which takes off all of the eye makeup with it. The product contains Seaweed and Aloe and promises to remove makeup, soothe and cool tired eyes. The product is completely natural and is made with essential oils and herbal extracts and is free of all parabens.
The refreshing eye gel works wonders at removing eye makeup and giving tired eyes a new lease of life with the fresh awakening properties of the aloe. It is a strange sensation especially when taking off makeup before bed to make eyes feel more awake, however the following skincare steps usually do the job at putting me back into my place. Makeup comes off in one easy swipe and I find that one pump of the gel is enough for both eyes – even when wearing liquid liner. I also find that the next morning my eyes are significantly less puffy and I generally look more awake and feel rejuvenated. This really is a wonderful product and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who suffers with sore, sensitive, tired or puffy eyes.
