If you read my review of MUA Every Lash mascara (waterproof!) , you will know what an impossible task I found to remove it. I had heard good things about the Boots Cucumber Eye Makeup Remover (I think Sunday Girl did a review on it) so I decided to pick it up and give it a try. At £1.50, I figured I didn’t have much to lose.
The consistency of the Boots Cucumber Eye Makeup Remover is a somewhat runny gel that spreads easily onto a cotton pad. I put a small amount in the center of a cotton pad and then kind of squish it around before holding it onto my eye and then wiping the makeup away. It does have a cooling and soothing sensation.
I would say this is an ok makeup remover, it did remove the MUA Every Lash mascara, but only after a lot of scrubbing and about 3 cotton pads worth. With other waterproof mascaras, I also find that it leaves some residue. It does completely remove eye shadow so this might work for you if you use normal, non-water proof mascara. It’s definitely nothing special though.
Have you tried the Boots Cucumber Eye Makeup Remover or any of the other Boots Essentials Cucumber line?
