Skin Product Review: Simple - Eye Make-up Remover.

So I said I would review Simple's Eye Make-up Remover after reviewing Simple's skincare range (which you can see here if you want to). I have to say I'm not as impressed as I thought I would be even though I've used their skincare products for a couple of years now.

Simple state that this product 'effectively removes even waterproof mascara' and is 'perfect for even sensitive eyes'. In their favour, the consistency of the product is pretty good. It's not greasy or oily, just really watery without any perfume or colour to it. They also have pro-vitamin B5 which 'actively restores, softens and smooths'. Also it does remove my eyeshadow and liquid eyeliner pretty well enough to satisfy me as I do wear those make-up products the most. 

Unfortunately it does not remove mascara very well at all. I have had enjoyed their skin cleansers, toners and moisturisers but this really let me down. I've been looking for something to remove my mascara effectively and this doesn't do well at all.

  When removing my eye make-up, I simply pour a little onto any cotton pads I may have (any brand will do) and rub very gently until I am content that all of my make-up has supposedly been taken off. At first my eyes do look like they're completely free of make-up and it gives me that fresh, clean feel which is always a bonus but when I wake up in the morning I have panda eyes! Somehow I still have remnants of mascara all around my eyes even though I don't use waterproof mascara or even that much stuff on my eyes.

So I suppose you could use it to remove eyeshadow or eyeliner but regarding mascara, I don't think you'll be pleased. Not only that, others have complained of stinging in their eyes due to having sensitive eyes. I did not experience this myself but please be beware of this if you do want to try this product out.

If you do, you can buy it at Boots for £3.49 or better yet, at Superdrug for £1.49.

Have you tried this product out already? What did you think of it?
Please let me know what you think in the comments below!

Thankyou for reading.


  1. I have been curious about the simple range since you cannot buy it in Belgium and i heard several beautybloggers advertising it. I know the problem you describe, i had it already with several eye make up removers. Do you have a really good one to recommend? I will now head to the skincare review to see if there is something worth it to pick up when i am in London this November ;)

    1. Unfortunately I don't have a good eye make up remover for you at the moment, I don't even have one for myself! Simple's cleanser actually removes it better than its actual own eye makeup remover haha. I suppose you could give that a try, you get less of the panda eye look but not much. Thanks for also reading this post! x

  2. Great blog♥

  3. Very nice review. I've never thy this product,yet. I used to try its make-up wipe tissue. It's nice as well :)

  4. Oh dear, doesn't sound like much of an investment then! For me, Garnier Micellar water works wonders! Thanks for the honest review :)

    1. Yeah I reviewed Garnier's Micellar Water too, didn't find that worked too great for me either. I don't know if it's just my skin or what haha. Thanks for reading!

  5. thank you for the review! really helpful, as i was debating on this product.
