Kryolan Eye Make-Up Remover

It’s a while since I used a bi-phase eye make up remover – I think the last one might have been Lancome but I can’t be sure. This is new from professional make-up brand, Kryolan, which is one of the few pro-brands that is still largely used by make-up artists rather than going fully mainstream. So, they need products that really work backstage on models whose skin is already fed up of multiple applications and removals in a gentle and effective way which this does.

I used it on Friday evening to take off a full Marc Jacobs smokey grey eye with black liner and kohl and a pile of Benefit They’re Real mascara and off it came, smoothly and with no rubbing. I needed a couple of cotton wool pads to complete the job but away it all went without leaving my eyes feeling filmy. That’s a win. The non-win is that they’ve used carmine in the ingredients making it non-vegan: I feel sure there was a decent substitute for that available and with make up trends absolutely heading towards vegan friendly products, it’s a curious choice.

It’s £14.50 HERE. 


Eye Make-up Remover is a dual-phase make-up remover for particularly mild cleansing of the areas around the eyes. Due to the dual-phase a very accurate cleansing will be achieved. No fragrances or perfumes have been added, in order to protect sensitive skin. Eye Make-up Remover should be shaken well before using so that the dual-phase is mixed well. The mixture can now be applied gently on a cotton pad so that the surface is moistened well but should not drip. Now the eyelid can be cleaned gently. May not be recommended for contact lens wearers.
