Review – Klorane Waterproof eye make-up remover

4 Oct

 Klorane Waterproof eye make-up remover with *bonus* soothing cornflower.


I received this sample in my Birchbox.  You can also get it from Sephora and it retails for $16.00 for a little over 3 fl oz.

What they claim:

What it is:
A bi-phase waterproof eye makeup remover with soothing cornflower.

What it does:
This gentle formula quickly removes all types of long-lasting makeup, even waterproof, and strengthens eyelashes without any oily residue. It is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, and is enriched with cornflower extract to soothe and decongest.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates

What else you need to know:
This product is also hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested, silicone-free, phenoxyethanol-free, and vegan. It is formulated to reduce the risk of allergy.

Since the 12th century, cornflower has been used for its medicinal properties to relieve tired and irritated eyes. Its blue color was considered a token for healthy eyes.

Research results:
In a clinical study on eyelash loss after daily application of Klorane Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover for 2 weeks:
– 75% reduction in eyelash loss was measured

My thoughts:

I will just come out and say it; this is probably the best eye make-up remover I’ve ever used.  There is absolutely no eye sting. Zero.   Nada.  Zilch.  My eyes don’t water, burn, itch.  NOTHING.

Does it remove eye make-up?

Yes, as good as any other eye make up remover.  Go over the eyelid a few times, let it soak into the lashes a bit and you are make-up free.

Do you have a reduction in eyelash loss?

Actually, maybe.  I had noticed the other day that I am losing less eyelashes.

Does it stay oily after using?


Will I purchase?

Yes, very much a yes.


Review- Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

30 Jul

I have used a few different dry shampoos.  My go-to has always been the Bumble and Bumble one as it is RED.  Amazing, right?  But it has been discontinued.

I received a sample of the Klorane dry shampoo in my July Birchbox and I didn’t realize how much I would end up loving it.


I normally wash my hair every other day – but this has allowed me to be able to go 3 days.  Even during the summer and during a freaking heat wave.  AND all while driving a convertible.

The smell isn’t overwhelming, it sort of just smells clean and a bit like hairspray.  It absorbs oils really well but doesn’t leave white residue like some dry shampoos do.

I am almost out of my sample size so I think i’m going to commit and buy a full size bottle of this.  Unless anyone has any suggestions for me…
