clarins instant eye makeup remover : £17
L'oreal absolute eye and lip makeup remover : £4.99

The Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover is a product that I always rave about. It literally removes heavy duty eye makeup with just one swipe of a cotton pad. Last year I must have gone through at least 3 of these bad boys, but at £17 a pop they don't come cheap. I'll have to credit Emma for this one as she was the person who let me know of the similarities between the two products. The L'Oreal Absolute Eye and Lip Makeup Remover is pretty much the same product as the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. Like the Clarins version it's a dual phase makeup removing solution which you shake up, apply to a cotton pad and wipe. Waterproof mascara is dissolved on touch, lashes are left conditioned and it doesnt feel greasy. I wholeheartedly think this does exactly the same job as the Clarins one. I'll definitely be getting the cheaper option in the future as I really do think they are essentially the same product but in different packaging. Why spend the £17 when you can get the same thing for £4.99 (and often for around the £3 mark as it's always on offer!) Snap it up right now!

Will you be trying the L'oreal version?
