Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-up Remover

Strong eye make-up is autumn's signature.  (Viz:  yesterday's fab palette from Urban Decay on Beauty Bible Loves.) The challenge:  getting rid of every last atom, before bedtime.

Well, this does the job gorgeously - and at a seriously gorgeous price:  most 'dual-phase' eye make-up removers are several times the price.

Featuring soothing cornflower, it's dermatologically- and ophthalmologically approved.  (And we can testify to its gentleness:  Jo's super-sensitive to many eye make-up cleansers, but has no problems with this.)  Where it really comes into its own is with waterproof mascara, which it sweeps away with what we can only describe as nonchalance - yet leaves no greasy residue.

The only downside:  for whatever reason, this Nivea 'find' isn't anywhere on-line, so you'll actually have to get yourself to a bricks-and-mortar store and keep your (smokily made-up) eyes open for it, there.

UK readers find Nivea Double Effect Eye Make-up Remover at Boots stores/£3.36 for 125 ml
