Current favourite Make-up Remover

I love Living Nature as a brand and have used quite a few Skin Care and Make-up products from their range and I have to say, both have never failed to impress me.

If you are unaware about it as a brand, then its a Luxury Organic brand originating from New Zealand and has been making cosmetics and toiletries since 20 years!

I absolutely love their philosophy - "All plants produce a variety of bioactive molecules to protect themselves from stresses such as insect and bacterial attack, and dehydration caused by drought, heat and frost. Living Nature products capture these concentrated bioactive molecules, and they provide the active ingredients in the range - protecting and nurturing the skin exactly the way nature intended"

What I have from them today is their Gentle Make-up Remover, one that I have been obsessively using since the past few days and its on the verge of finishing now.

First of all, this is perfectly suitable to use around the eyes which is what I love. I really do not want to go about having a separate remover for every area of the face. It removes eye make-up really well as well, just not waterproof mascara.

It's consistency is just like water which is such a relief, knowing that there will not be any oily residue to wipe away.

Having said that, I did not expect much from the very gentle consistency but surprisingly enough, it provides a thorough cleanse for a full face of make-up without any stinging or irritation. 

My only gripe with the product is that the bottle is shaped in a funny way due to which you get too little product for £11.50. A 100ml is just not enough, especially as I use it to cleanse my make-up which can use up a lot of the product.

Also, I read 'Manuka' on the bottle and thought it would smell delicious as Liz Earle products containing Manuka usually do. However this in fact has an absurd smell to it, not a pleasant one but not one that puts me off from using it either. 

Overall, its a pretty decent product for the price if your main criterion are 'organic' and 'sensitive eyes' but there are better alternatives out there I would say.

What do you use to remove Make-up? A good old make-up wipe or an intense cleansing regime... I'd love to know!
