I’ve heard so many raves about this eye-make up remover, but after using it, I was pretty disappointed.
It comes in a 250ml bottle with a flip opening. IT is really cheap, I think around $4 in Croatia.
I generally wear a lot of eye-make up (primer, several eyeshadows, liner and mascara), so I’m always looking for the perfect remover which will take off all the make-up without unnecessary scrubbing. Since it claims that it removes waterproof make-up, I have thought that Garnier Essentials will be perfect.
However, it didn’t impress me. I need a lot of remover and even then, the make-up isn’t completely gone. Even though it claims that it is for sensitive eyes, it managed to irritate my eyes (which aren’t sensitive at all).
What this is good for is to use it to remove eye-shadow fallout or to do clean-up after applying eye make-up.
It is a “won’t buy anymore” for me because it seems that it works on removing eyeshadow, but it fails when faced with non-waterproof mascara and liner.
