I am very particular about eye makeup removers as of late. I am not a huge fan of the oil/cleanser based formulas as I feel they bother my contact lens wearing eyes more than they used to. Whether it is the newer formulations or just my intolerance as I age, I am not sure. Anyway, I just found a gentle eye makeup remover that is not oil based and I am loving it. It comes from Parisian brand LIERAC and it is officially called Diopti Demaq or Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.
This eye makeup remover is a clear gel that instantly and effectively removes every trace of eye makeup in a cinch. I apply a pea sized amount to my makeup remover square and gently rub it over my eyes, turn the pad over to make sure I got it all, and the job is complete.
Diopti Dermaq is formulated with floral water of rose, cornflower and mallow extract, Vitamin B5 and keratin derivatives that help prevent the loss of lashes and restore their strength, suppleness and thickness. Yes, all while removing even the most stubborn eye makeup.
LIERAC has a sure-fire winner with this one. The tube retails for $24.00 and is available at all Duane Reade locations in the US, as well as online at Lierac-USA.com, and other specialized retailers.
