On my recent travels to the UK I picked up a packet of these super affordable simple Eye Make-up Remover pads from Boots and its not a range that I'm too familiar with or have ever used. 
simple is a leading brand for sensitive skin in the UK and is part of the consumer goods company Unilever UK Ltd.The simple range includes cleansers, moisturizers, eye care, and wipes.

simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover Pads 30 pads 

This product forms part of a range called Kind to Eyes, which simple claim will help to keep the skin around your eyes healthy, hydrated, plump and youthful-looking and for anyone that has sensitive eyes you will already know the challenges that using eye products can pose.

The simple cleansing goodness pads contain Pro-Vitamin B5, which helps to gently cleanse and remove even waterproof mascara, without drying the skin. You will also be glad to know that the pads won't sting or irritate your eyes and are free from any of the following known irritants:

Artificial Perfume or colour
Harsh Chemicals

They are also Dermatologically Tested and Approved, Hypoallergenic, Ophthalmologist Tested and Paraben free.

The large soft round Eye Make-up Remover pad is well moistened with the removing lotion and is free from any fragrance, which I actually prefer even though I don't have sensitive skin around the eye area. One pad was plenty to easily remove make-up from both my eyes with a flip over of the pad when moving from one eye to the other.
I was very impressed with the removal ability of these pads, especially for the budget price. Wipes for both the face and eyes are becoming increasingly popular as they are so handy for quickness,ease and perfect for travel. However it does irritate me somewhat that often the wipes have dried out before you finish the pack, due to the resealable lift flap losing its sealing ability.
Again I was pleasantly surprised that due to the pads containing no oil and having a large sticky flap area, that for once they stayed moist till the last one, a first for me with my previous experiences of wipes, that always seem to annoyingly dry out even though I take care to reseal correctly.

A selection of simple products are available in South Africa at Dischem

  1. This sounds like a great product. It's a pity it is not available in South Africa. A few years ago Almay had a similar product but it looks like it is not available anymore either. On a next overseas visit to the UK or Aus I will be on the lookout for these eye remover pads.
