A few months ago, I want to say around August I needed a switch from my eye makeup remover. I had always opted for oil free removers and was loyal to a particular brand. Suddenly out of nowhere I developed an "eye rash" and the irritation my poor lids were going through were insane. Talk about puffy, red and scaly looking skin... It was not pretty. It took about a month or so to figure out the culprit. I knew I was having an allergic reaction to something I had put on my skin. I even avoided putting on any makeup at all in hopes to clearing the skin irritation. Long story short, my eye makeup remover was wreaking havoc on the delicate skin around my eyes. I had had enough. After over a month of suffering with skin issues and not feeling or looking like my normal self I was determined to set out to find something that would be effective at removing makeup and also soothing for sensitive skin.
I chose Caudalie Cleansing Water because its hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested! Very appealing to me after everything I had gone through! Its also free from parabens, phthalates, and sulfates! Not good for the body and will only aid irritation. From the moment I used Caudalie Cleansing Water, I knew I had made the right choice. First of all the name Cleansing Water, couldn't fit the product better. The texture and consistency is just like water, except it is completely soothing and smells incredible. Secondly, I love that this magic (yes its magic) cleansing water effectively removes makeup and doesn't irritate my skin or leave a greasy or nasty film behind. And instead of grease, my eyelid area is gently moisturized by organic grape water and chamomile, so it doesn't dry out skin! Score! I also want to add that Caudalie's Cleansing Water is an ideal eye makeup remover for those who wear false lashes or have eyelash extentions. Because it is oil free and incredibly delicate it will not strip your falsies! Only one negative is that I would not recommend the cleansing water for those who use water proof or long wearing mascara. All in all, this makeup remover is amazing. It will remove your makeup, soothe and moisturize your skin and naturally treat and heal the delicate eye area. It is refreshing beyond belief and I am a fan!
