A Duo For Sensitive Eyes - La Roche-Posay Respectissime

La Roche-Posay Respectissime Volume Mascara and Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Review

La Roche-Posay is a brand that pops up on my blog quite a bit. I love their Toleraine moisturisers - the Nuit version is currently in my skincare line up, and I'd never be without Efficlar Duo waiting in the wings to zap any blemishes. I also like their base products which are formulated for sensitive skin, so I was pretty excited to try two new eye products from the Respectissime line.

As a contact lens wearer who is sat behind a computer all day, my eyes do get sensitive and dry. By the end of the day I can't wait to remove my makeup but I have to be careful to not aggravate them. I'm also allergic to nickel which seems to only affect my eye area so the gentler the better.

The La Roche-Posay Respectissime Volume Mascara* is one of three new mascaras from the brand - there's a waterproof version and one that strengthens the lashes. The Volume mascara is very black and wonderfully separates my lashes, giving them the thickness and kind of volume I love for most days. We're not talking false lash territory, but the volume is certainly there. The formula is nickel controlled which is great news for me, and also free from parabens and fragrance, whilst being hypoallergenic to boot, so perfect for those long tiring days. Where this mascara excels for me is it's staying power. It's not too wet so it doesn't transfer, and once on, its on. No flaking, smudging or any of that nonsense. But when it's time to say goodbye, it's gone.

And to remove it is it's little partner in crime, La Roche-Posay Respectissime Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover*. This is a bi-phase formula that once shaken and activated, takes care of all my makeup - mascara, eye liner, eye shadow, liquid lipsticks, in seconds. It's incredibly gentle on the skin and eyes due to the sensitive formula, but it goes hard on makeup - including waterproof mascara. I tend to apply it to couple of cotton rounds and hold them over my eyes - which by the way is super soothing as its nice and cold! After a few seconds everything wipes away. No rubbing, no redness, no tears. Fuss-free makeup removal. Most eye products make my eyes sore but the Respectissime Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover isn't one of them. Even though it is a bi-phase formula, it doesn't feel greasy on the skin at all, unlike many I've used before. It leaves my skin feeling comfortable and hydrated. I always follow with a full cleanse anyway but there's no panic to throw on some moisturiser which is sometimes an all too common feeling.

If you have sensitive skin you're going to want to pick these up for sure!
