Settle in for another review of a dual phase waterproof eye make-up remover. This time, I went with Garnier’s offering called Express 2 in 1 that has a lovely purple tone as opposed to the more common blue shades.
This purple concoction is actually very good at dealing with waterproof make-up without too much rubbing. Like all dual phase removers, it feels a little oily on the lid but I personally don’t mind. It doesn’t blur my vision and my sensitive eyes have no issues with this formule.
The 2 in 1 mentioned in the name refers to the fact that this product isn’t just made to remove difficult eye make-up efficiently, but is also meant to take care of your eyelashes. Garnier suggests this effect will appear after four weeks, but I honestly haven’t noticed any difference. This product is actually soft on the lashes, but not necessarily softer than my favorites from Loreal or No7.
The packaging can make all the difference and it is excellent. It closes properly, important as you have to shake this before use, but is easy to open. It also dispenses the product without creating a spill.
Overall, a very decent product without parabens. I have been looking around for a more natural alternative though, so please let me know if you have any suggestions!
