Here is a run down of our favourite ones at the moment....
That's right. Plain old, cheap as anything Almond oil. This one featured is £1.59 for 50ml.
I was first introduced to using Almond oil this way from a friend of mine. After a night out she was massaging this over her eye lids, emulsifying all the eye shadow and mascara off in one smudgy mess with ease. I snatched it off her and found it was just plain, neat Almond oil. She said it got everything, even waterproof mascara off without dragging the skin and then simply just washed the residue off when she washed her face after as normal.
She had learnt this from her mother (who is 69 and looks 45).
This oil is safe around the eye (unless you have a nut allergy). It is packed with fats, vitamin E and proteins. It helps moisturise and hydrates the skin. It won't block the pores and leaves the delicate skin soft and calmed.

Eyeko Mascara Off Remover Wipes
Wipes especially for the eyes have launched from Eyeko. In each pack you get 10 cotton wipes. Each wipe is infused with olive oil, aloe oil and grapefruit extract. These remove all eye makeup easily without any residue left behind. These are ideal for travelling when you don't want to carry around a bottle of remover. Perfect for flights also if you only have carry on luggage and can't take your liquid remover.
A pack of 10 wipes will cost you £6.00 which is a little pricey we feel. That's 60p per wipe and if you are using them every day they will only last you 10 days but good for a holiday.
Bioderma Crealine H20
You have probably seen us using this tons in our tutorials and if you read our digital magazine TWO Magazine then you will often see it featured in our 'What the Pro's carry' section.
It's a bit of a cult remover simply because it is very gentle and suitable for even the most sensitive of eyes.
This emulsifies heavy makeup off with ease and if you remove and re apply your makeup throughout the day then this won't irritate your already annoyed eyes!
Comes in a gigantic 500ml bottle or a more manageable 100ml or 250ml bottle.
A little more tricky to get hold of but you can get it from http://www.escentual.com/bioderma/bioderma013/ from £4.50 upwards depending on the size you prefer.
Sephora Targeted Eye Makeup Remover Swabs
These are genius. Basically like a regular cotton bud but the inner stick part is hollow and filled with eye makeup remover.
Simply snap off the end with the blue line and the liquid will saturate the bud at the other end.
You can then use to gently remove your mascara.
The liquid also contains an ingredient called Procapil which helps with lash growth.
These are also particularly good for touching up a messy eyeliner or a wonky lip liner!
You can get these from Sephora for $9.00 http://www.sephora.com/targeted-eye-remover-swabs-P378041
