I have very sensitive eyes so I tend to avoid oil based eye make up removers. However, this organic formula with castor oil is first rate. Unscented (despite the name "Floral Bouquet") and provided you use it correctly, works quickly and thoroughly. A real pleasure to use and recommend. No surprise, as its Melvita.
I love how thorough, fast and gentle this cleanses my eye area from makeup. Two phases are mixed easily with a small shake, then I pour it on a cotton pad, hold it against the eyes and wipe off. It's easy and fast, and i know that it safe too. I love that it's fragrance free and doesn't irritate the eye area. Well done, Melvita!

Removes makeup fast

The price is on higher side
The bottle is a bit small
Unlike many eye make-up removers, Melvita Floral Bouquet is predominately water-based rather than oil-based. It does contain some oil (castor seed oil), but the formulation is still very light and non-greasy. This makes it ideal for individuals with skin problems such as acne or rosacea who have to avoid oil-based skincare products.
1. Ethics: suitable for vegans, and not tested on animals. Mostly contains natural ingredients.
2. Packaging: comes in an attractive blue plastic bottle that's recyclable. Has an easy to open screw-lid.
3. Fragrance: very light and floral. Doesn't have the strong chemical scent that many eye make-up removers have.
4. Consistency/texture: a light, non-greasy solution. It's water-based, so lacks the unpleasant oiliness of many other eye make-up removers.
5. Ease-of-use and effectiveness: simply shake the solution, and apply to a cotton wool ball or pad. Easily removes eye make-up. Leaves the eyelashes feeling soft and nourished.
6. Gentleness: I have a very sensitive eye area, but the remover didn't sting or cause redness.
1. Price: expensive.
2. Fragrance: has a very slight, underlying chemical scent.
3. Gentleness: not quite as gentle as I'd hoped. Caused some puffiness around the eye, but it settled quickly. Still far gentler than many eye make-up removers.
Overall, a highly effective, and non-greasy eye make-up remover. Leaves the eyelashes feeling surprisingly soft and nourished. May cause some puffiness around the eyes, but still quite gentle.
Firstly i loved the packaging,it was expensive and fresh looking and i feel looked appealing and fits the brand and natural ingredients well.
The eye makeup remover was very easy to use and after giving it a little shake i dispensed just the right amount onto a cotton pad.
After placing over my eye and leaving there for a few seconds i gently wiped away to notice that it effectively and effortlessly removed most of my makeup.
It is perfect for the delicate eye area and took very little effort but most of all was not greasy or leave a film on the eye.
I would highly recommend this product and already have recommended to my clients :)
I am a big fan of the original eye makeup remover by Melvita and was very intrigued to try the new version. Being a bi-phase formula I had high expectations of this product. As always I love the 100% recyclable bottle however, I did feel that the packaging of this new eye makeup remover was fairly unremarkable in comparison to its predecessor. The ingredients are a very clever mixture; each in its own right addresses several common issues of the delicate eye area. Rose floral water is wonderfully hydrating and the skin-softening orange blossom helps dry areas. The cornflower floral water was a huge plus for me. I have used products in the past with this ingredient and I have found it to be one of the most effective ingredients for cooling, soothing and decongesting as I suffer regularly with swollen puffy eyes. It is a two phase product that needs to be agitated by shaking the bottle before use.
The bottle is an easy hold slim shape and has a small hole stopper in the neck to prevent over dispensing of your product with a small screw top lid. The bottle is opaque blue in colour, conducive to the product inside. There is a mild scent which is very subtle and fresh.
As with the previous product you only need a small amount of fluid applied to cotton pads and the fluid itself is completely colourless. As with all eye makeup products I place the cotton pads over my eyes for a few seconds. If it is a good quality remover this should melt your makeup minimising the amount of rubbing on the delicate eye area. There are certainly no complaints with the efficiency of this product. I very quickly and easily removes my eye make-up without rubbing however I did find that I have to conduct a few more wipes than Melvita’s previous product to ensure that all makeup was totally removed. The products gives an instant cooling and soothing sensation to the eye area and does not strip or dry out the skin. Many have reported an apparent greasy residue. This is present however it disappears very quickly and acts as a wonderful moisturiser without being heavy. My eye contour skin is very sensitive and is susceptible to puffiness from oily or greasy products but I am very impressed with this product that actually has the opposite effect by reducing puffiness.
As I like to experiment with my products I have decanted some of this into a smaller bottle which I keep in the fridge. I have used it as an eye compress and the effects it has on puffiness and irritation are fantastic! I recommend you try this method.
You only need a small amount of product per cleanse so this makes the bottle excellent value for such a quality eye makeup remover. All in all I have really enjoyed this product. My honest opinion is that I prefer the original eye makeup remover as I found it completely effortless for removal of makeup; however, I am very keen to keep a bottle of this product to hand as it cannot be beaten on its effectiveness on puffiness, irritation and sensitivity. This will become one of my prescription products for when my eyes suffer flare-ups of sensitivity.
If you have not had the pleasure of experiencing Melvita products before I would strongly recommend that you at least try this one. It by far exceeds the performance of some other leading brand eye-makeup removers and with the added benefit of its organic ingredients it is worth every penny of its price tag!
