I'm testing Derma 3 in 1 facial wipes, Johnson's baby oil and Tesco's own eye make up remover. They're all dermatalogically tested and so are supposed to be suitable for sensitive skin. These were all bought from Tesco and their prices are:
Baby oil: £1.75
Eye makeup remover: 80p
Obviously, for this to work, we're going to need to try each product out, right? So I lathered my lids in a cheap liquid eye-liner that I know to be particularly hardy during removal. For the purpose of the experiment (and of course, everyday wear) I didn't want anything that would just come straight off.
This is after one swipe with each product. I've run out of cotton wool, which I didn't realise until my eyeliner was similar to Boy George's, so toilet paper had to do the job.
As you can see, the eye make-up remover performed best and then probably the wipes and then the baby oil. Interestingly, the cheapest product did best and the most expensive, worst. In all, the wipes took 8 'wiping actions' (I don't know what to call it OKAY?), the baby oil 13 and the eye make-up remover 5. I should also mention that the baby oil sort of hurt a little, even though I applied a very generous amount (I had a little spillage I tried to use so much, actually!) and clogged up my eyelashes and left my skin horribly oily. The wipes also rubbed a bit but the eye make-up remover was soothing, gentle and effective, which I suppose means that we have a clear winner - Tesco's own eye make-up remover for 80p!
What's your go-to make-up remover?
