Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover

It's always a 'gulp' moment when a beauty brand proudly announces a makeover for a 'hero' product.  Because 'new' it may be, but 'improved'...?  Not always, in our (extensive) experience. So:  Clarins's existing 'dual-phase' eye make-up remover has disappeared, in favour of this new version.  And it really does do a brilliant and fairly instant job, even on stubborn old waterproof mascara.

With a pH balance identical to natural tears, it promises to be suitable for even the touchiest eyes.  (We're certainly not experiencing any problems, and we're a litmus test for eye sensitisers.)  There's a touch of organic rose floral water in there (hence the lightly-rosy scent), plus soothing chamomile extract.

Keep your eyes open for it at Clarins counters (or on-line below), where it just landed.
