Some Make Up removers and Why the Garnier one is my fav!

Hey Guys, 
So if you subscribe to my YouTube channel you would have seen a video for the Garnier 2 in 1 Eye make up remover.
This is why! I tested 4 make up removers and Olive oil as it is natural way of removing Make up if you don't have any remover or you have skin that is sensitive to chemicals.

From left to right

Simple Kind and Gentle Eye Make Up Remover
Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Clarins Gentle Eye Make Up Remover Lotion

Patons Eye Make Up Remover Pads

Here you can see I have destroyed My arm in various Make Up for fun here is a list
Avon Super Shock liner in Silver
MAC Black trak gel liner
ELF cream eyeliner in Gunmetal
Bourgois Volumiser Mascara in Black
Urban Decay 24/7 glide on liner in Zero
MAC Eyeshadow in Twinks
NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Rust
All over Urban Decay Primer Potion

This is after one swipe of the product.

Working backwards
Olive oil: worked ok is gentle enough to rub over to get all the make up off, leave an oily residue but this soaked in and leaves your skin feeling soft.

Patons: Didn't really work well, Leaves the skin very oily doesn't soak in.

Simple: This gentle enough to go over which you have to do as you can see from the picture it didn't much move the make up, However it will remove it if you are prepared to go over and over your eye. It dries completely leaving no residue but it may dry out your skin.

Clarins: This was my favourite Remover for ages, as you can see from the picture it doesn't remover much from one swipe but it will. It struggles with the Gel liner as did the rest. leaves minimal residue.

Garnier: My new fav, you can see from the picture that with one swipe it did much better than the rest combined. Had no problems with the gel liner, leaves a residue but this dries in quick enough and your skin feels hydrated afterwards. This is especially good because you don't have to go over and over you eyes, rubbing them sore.

I like the Garnier one so much I just bought 2 more bottles as back up as it was on special.

I fully recommend this product.
