AMW Reviews: Yves Rocher Eye Make-up Remover with Camomile

I use makeup remover on a daily basis like I would do for my regular skincare regimen!  Even with various Cleansing Oils on hand, I prefer to wipe my eye makeup first with a separate eye makeup remover before moving forward to cleansing oils then facial cleanser!  

No wonder I finish these products so fast I couldn't keep track on the different brands I've tried!  (I probably need to browse through my own reviews!  lol).

After I "hit the pan" with my Benefit Remove It Makeup Remover, I'm left with one "opened" makeup remover from Face of Australia so I told myself it's time to try another one! I do have this sickness of opening 2 similar products for comparison.

I got the Yves Rocher Eye Make-up Remover during my visit at their Trinoma branch.  I was told by SA that this is very gentle and works for sensitive eyes!

Yves Rocher says ---
Yves Rocher Eye Make Up Remover with Chamomile is specially formulated for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.  Gently eliminates all traces of eye makeup.  Soothes and leaves behind a feeling of freshness. No rinsing necessary. Formula tested under ophtalmological supervision.  Paraben free formula. 

Size: 118 ml

AMW says ---
  • Simple packaging, easy to control the amount or product needed.
  • Removes all traces of eye makeup, brow products and non-waterproof mascara and liners.
  • Faint floral smell.
  • Doesn't sting or irritate my eyes.
  • Doesn't feel heavy or oily.
  • Has Camomile which may help relax your eye area.
  • Does not completely remove waterproof liner and mascara.
A good eye makeup remover for very sensitive eyes plus the added camomile which is a huge plus to help soothe and relax tired eyes.  The product can remove most eye shadows but leaves a tiny amount of waterproof liner and mascaras.

  • For this product to be effective, apply a good amount of Yves Rocher Eye Make-up remover with camomile in a clean cotton pad, leave the pad directly on your closed lids and gently massage the product outwards.  This method makes it easier for me to "melt off" makeup.
  • For liners and mascara, take extra time to remove with a cotton bud.
  • Extra tip: Apply a good amount of product and leave it with your eyes closed.  The camomile will help relax and soothe tired eyes.
  • Leave the product inside the fridge for an extra cooling effect as you remove your eye makeup.
  • Though this is a no-rinse formula, I prefer to wash off everything with your choice of facial cleanser before going to bed.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
People with very gentle and sensitive eyes.

Where to purchase and how much?
Locally for Php380.00 (approx $9.50) at Yves Rocher  TriNoma Mall, SM North Edsa The Block, SM South Mall, SM Fairview and Ayala Center Cebu.


A closer look on the packaging.  
You can easily control the amount of "drops" you need.

For complete eye makeup remover, I prefer using a cotton pad, apply a good amount of Yves Rocher Eye Make-up Remover with Camomile and leave it for a couple of seconds as shown on photo below.  This does not only melt makeup but soothes my tired eyes at the end of the day.

Without much rubbing, this is the amount of product that was removed after leaving the make-up remover for around 20-30 seconds.  Extra step may be needed (like cleaning mascara and liner with cotton bud) if you use waterproof eye products.

Have you tried Yves Rocher Eye Make-up Remover with Camomile?
If not, have you tried any eye make-up remover that works for your eyes?

I have tried quite a number of eye makeup removers and I'm glad to say goodbye to eye makeup removers that put me to tears!  Companies are coming up with more lightweight make-up removers that works even for the most sensitive eyes!

  1. Great review! I also prefer using gentle makeup removers...My fave is still the one made by Nature Republic but I wanted to try cleansing oils so I'm a look out for a gentle one too :)

    1. Ah I haven't tried the one from Nature Republic in terms of eye makeup remover, Cleansing oil lang ang na try ko from them :D

  2. Up to now, I still use the one from Maybelline! I love using waterproof mascara so this one really works for me...

    1. In fairness, nice naman the one from Maybelline and L'Oreal :D

  3. You should try Bifesta, too! :)


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
