You might recall a post I did a few months ago on a Mac lipstick I had to pay twice the original price for – if not you can click here for a walk down memory lane. Well today, you get to hear all about a lower end brand I had to pay a high end price for – Boot’s No 7 Beautiful Skin Eye Makeup Remover. Listed online for around 8 pounds, I paid approximately 20 pounds. Annoying!I got this from the fake Boot’s store in Islamabad (They changed their name after receiving a warning from the original Boot’s Franchise – but are back to calling themselves Boots again 🙂 maybe now the franchise is official! but the prices remain out of control so I can’t be too sure 😛
Regardless of the fact that I paid a lot more than I should have for this, I won’t lie, it was worth it.
It’s even better than Clinique’s eye removal products (might review them too :). It works beautifully even with the most stubborn of cosmetics (waterproof mascara; eye-liner) and prevents impatient makeup removers like me tugging and pulling the eye-skin apart to death while trying to get makeup off. Also, if you are a clumsy at make-up removal, this is perfect. Even if it gets into your eyes, it doesn’t hurt terribly 😛 I got this at the peak of an eye allergy when my doc told me to cut down on my cosmetics so its great if you are suffering or recovering from an eye problem.
I dip unused cotton buds (straight from the box) directly into the bottle and apply on my eyes. You’re not supposed to use it beyond the six month time period, but I do (since I paid so much) and it hasn’t caused me any problems.
I have ordered two additional bottles from an awesome friend of mine who will be visiting from the UK – she will be getting it at the original price so I’m super happy that I won’t need to dish extra on this ever again (hopefully!).
So if you need a good eye-makeup remover and have sensitive eyes, this is it for you! Boots (UK) is having a special offer these days (available online) – 3 products for the price of two 🙂 if you are based there or have family/friends that can receive your online shopping, its time to get busy ordering! In Islamabad it remains available at a huge premium at the “Boots” store – so if you are desperate (like I was), at least there are no access issues with this!
I hope this helps you maintain your youth lovelies 🙂 Take care and make-up well until next time!
