Finding products that I can throw in my bag and use when I’m on the go, is something I always keep a eye out for, especially when it comes to makeup remover. Whether it’s for before the gym or after a shoot I always like to keep some form of makeup remover in my bag so that I’m prepared. In the past I have used makeup wipes to remove stubborn eye makeup when away from home, however I’m not so keen on them if I’m honest.
I came across these Johnson’s Daily Essentials Gentle Eye Make-up Removal Pads and thought I’d give them a go. Johnson’s is a brand I’ve often used, as their products are usually gentle on the skin and I wasn’t disappointed with these makeup removal pads either.
The pads come in a plastic circular tub with a screw top lid, which is perfect as it prevents the pads inside for drying out. There are 30 circular pads inside the tub and it recommends using one for each eye, however on days when I’ve just been wearing mascara, I’ve found I’ve been able to use either side of one pad for each eye.
The pads are really soft and feel gentle on the skin, which is of course important as the eye area is very delicate. The pads feel slightly damp to the touch and I have found that they do work well at removing even waterproof mascara. They are also very lightly fragranced with a fresh scent and after use they leave my eyes feeling moisturised as apposed to leaving the skin feeling slightly dry like some makeup wipes can.
A great thing about these pads are that my eyes are left looking fresh after removing my eye makeup and don’t leave my eyes looking red. I would definitely recommend these eye makeup removal pads as they are gentle on the eyes and are great for travel use. I give them a big thumbs up.
