FOR THE LOVE OF EYES
by Kirsten Brusse
I have been wearing contact lenses on a daily basis since I was 12 years old. I am practically blind without them. Dryness, redness, itchiness and irritation are a constant battle for me. If I could, I would avoid wearing eye makeup all together and when I didn’t have a choice, I was always on the hunt for a good eye makeup remover that would get everything off, but wouldn’t burn or sting in the process.
Well, little did I know, that my eye makeup remover wasn’t not only contributing to my issue, it was actually causing it. When I did a little research, I discovered that most products on the market contain chemicals that are toxic & harsh to the delicate tissue of the eyes and contribute to redness and irritation. It makes sense, when you think about it. Lately, I have been trying to use less and less chemicals on my body, but never really gave my eyes another thought.
While searching for a greener alternative for eye makeup remover, I discovered these little beauties and I have never looked back. We love eyes uses natural plant ingredients such as coconut, radish, tea tree and honeysuckle to make their makeup remover and is totally free of harmful chemicals and toxins. Their products include a cleansing foam as well as a cleansing oil and I love them both. If you are wearing a lot of eye makeup, you can even use the oil and then follow up with the foam, to make sure you remove every trace of makeup on your eyes.
I am a huge proponent of taking off your makeup everyday. Not only does leaving your makeup on age you and clog your pores, it can cause serious eye irritation and even infections. Who wants that? Here’s how to use these products:
Tea Tree Makeup Remover
Wash hands. Remove contact lenses prior to use. Dispense 5 drops onto a cotton pad or Q-tip. Gently rub onto eyelids & eyelashes until makeup is removed. For best results, follow with We Love Eyes Tea Tree Eyelid & Eyelash Foaming Cleanser.
Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser
Shake well before use. Wash hands. Remove contact lenses prior to use. Dispense 2 pumps onto clean fingertips. With closed eyes, gently rub onto eyelids & eyelashes about 5 times back & forth. Rinse with water. Towel dry.
My eyes have never felt better. I can wear eye makeup all day now and it comes of lickekty split with this stuff. During the cold winter months, I have really loved using the oil, as it not only gets off every little bit of makeup,but it also helps in keeping the skin around my eyes hydrated and notably less dry and itchy. Some days, I can even skip the eye cream. This stuff is amazing and has been a life changer for me.
