The Avene Dermatological Hydrotherapy Centre in France has treated sensitive skin for over two centuries. Using the soothing properties of Avene thermal spring water, Avene has created a complete line of skincare products dedicated to sensitive and problem skin. As a result, their products do not contain parabens and they are all hypoallergenic. Avene's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is a gorgeous product. Its formula contains no harsh chemicals and removes eye makeup softly and efficiently. Its light, non-oily gel glides on the eyelid and does not leave an oily residue or sting and irritate the eye. It really works and it works in a more natural and soothing way. I actually look forward to that time of day when I remove my mascara and eye makeup. It is a pampering treat, not just a must-do routine.
