I’m a firm believer in the saying ‘you never know you miss it ’til it’s gone.’ This couldn’t be more true of Johnson’s gentle eye make-up remover pads, which I bought on a whim when they were on a 3-for-2 in Boots a while ago. They were my ‘freebie’ after stocking up on some facial wash that I don’t mind taking on my travels. When I first started using them I did think they were a bit of a hassle, having to use an extra product within my already bulging beauty routine, but I soon decided I loved them.
The pads are basically circular cotton pads soaked in makeup remover, but they work really well and feel so comfortable on your eyes. You need one pad for each eye and they’re qualitative enough to use both sides. Once you hold the pad for a few seconds your eye makeup comes off quite easily, leaving practically nothing behind. I noticed how good these were when I’d run out and went back to using traditional eye makeup remover, which was quite frankly pants. After four different cotton pads full of formula I was still waking up with panda eyes – not so with Johnson’s. These are literally a few quid so well worth a shot if you struggle to get your makeup off. I also have really sensitive eyes and these don’t aggravate them in the slightest. Score.
