About Remove Eye Makeup Remover
We take back what we said about the Tea Tree Facial Exfoliant, THIS is Aesop’s cleanest product, and one that we love at the Clean Beauty Compendium.
Aesop’s Remove is a gentle oil-based eye makeup remover, and is their simplest formula with only three ingredients! Instead of opting for the more drying but lash-friendly castor oil, the base of this eye makeup remover is grapeseed oil. Grapeseed oil is very light and has a very low comedogenic score. And for an added bonus… it mimics your skin’s natural sebum so it will trick your skin into thinking it is secreting the right amount of oil, reducing your skin’s oil output! That sounds like a win-win to us.
It also contains Blue (or German) Chamomile which contains azulene (the compound that makes it blue). Azulene is a powerful anti-inflammatory which makes it ideal for calming sensitive skin. The downside with this ingredient as part of an eye makeup remover is the strong smell. Remove may be a product you want to avoid if you have sensitive eyes.
The third ingredient is vitamin E. Vitamin E can be great for skin and lash health, but without knowing if the vitamin E Aesop uses is non-GMO, we have no idea if this has a high risk of clogging your pores. So far, none of us have had this experience, but everyone’s skin is a rebel and it does what it wants.
If Remove sounds like exactly what you want from an eye makeup remover, then you will get 2 fluid ounces (60 mL) for your hard-earned $23.00, which equals about $11.50 per ounce or $0.38 per milliliter. This is a decent price compared to similar products on the market.
Something important to note: If you have lash extensions, this may be something you put off purchasing. Remove is an oil-based eye makeup remover, and it will not only remove your eyeshadow, but also your extensions.
