Removing my eye make-up is quite a lengthy process at times. How do other mums take their eye make-up off?

  • I still use Vitamin E cream for removing make up and moisturising skin. I am always amazed at the amount of money some people will spend on super expensive products when a cheaper one does the job. But it is personal choice.



  • Lancome has a number of excellent make-up removers,you could ask for a sample at DJ’s or Myers and it takes two seconds to remove!



  • It could be because you apply your makeup very heavily so you need one that includes the removal of waterproof eye makeup that is gentle on eyes as well as face. I never had that problem no matter if it is light or heavy and even baby oil does the trick . I must be lucky .



  • My eyes are sensitive so I can’t just use any makeup or remover . I am currently using the Woolies Select Non Scent facial wipes and even with heavy make-up that is the best . I would try one and see how you go . Other items I tried are the Garnier Sensitive makeup remover , Nivea wipes and even baby oil works for me. It is best to read the instructions as it will say something like “will remove waterproof makeup etc ” . Hope you find a suitable one soon .



  • I bought some aloe face wipes from our local Amcal chemist and they work like a charm and they only cost $ 1.29.



  • i wash it off with cleanser in the shower.



  • I found a cheap pack of makeup wipes in my local Reject Shop for $2 & they are my new best friend!
    They work great & leave my skin feeling silky smooth.
    No irritation either.



  • I tried it as an eye make up remover today and it does really work.



  • I must give that a try! many thanks. I use it as a moisturiser.



  • Good old cheap and cheerful Vitamin E cream – my wonder cream!
