La Roche Posay Respectissime Ultra Doux Mascara & Physiological Eye Make Up Remover - perfect for sensitive eyes!

There is not one single morning of my life that goes by where I don't poke myself in the eyeball with my mascara wand.  Not one.  I need to keep make up remover and cotton buds right beside me every morning.  On mornings when I'm in a rush (which is most days), I have a 100% hit rate with the wand and my eyeball and spend the first couple of hours  of each day with red eyeballs.  I'm not saying that this new mascara from La Roche Posay will allow me to go wild and poke myself in the eyes willy nilly and come out unscathed, but I live in hope!

La Roche Posay have launched a new mascara, Respectissime Ultra Doux for those that have ultra-sensitive eyes.  First of all let me say that I channel Aretha Franklin every time I see anything from the Respectissime range.  And now you will too.  You're welcome.  You now have a theme tune for when you're applying your mascara.  Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me.

94% of the ingredients are natural and contain purified mineral pigments, glycerine, shea butter, argan oil, natural emulsifier system along with natural waxes and gums.  I've been playing with this mascara for the past few weeks and I have to say, I'm really impressed with it.  When I first saw the weeny wand, I didn't have much hope for it but I ashamedly judged the wand based on size....  Lesson learned... Sometimes the smaller, thinner wands are great *ahem*

The formulation itself is on the thinner side but that means you can build up the coats easily.  I found the mascara added more length than it did volume and you can really see the extra length of my lashes in the photo below.  When it dried, my lashes still felt soft and almost like I had nothing on them.  I'd definitely recommend this mascara if you're looking for a more natural look.  It retails at €17.25 which is on the more expensive side, but if you have sensitive eyes, you know how hard it is to find something that doesn't irritate your peepers.  It's better to spend the few bob extra on something that works.

Now, what goes on must come off so what does a sensitive eyeballed lady do?  As you may know from reading the blog, I like to try products.  When it comes to eye make up remover, I haven't been very lucky in the ones I've tried.  I've had to go to work many a time with big red eyes from removing my make up the night before.  The only one that didn't hurt me was the Toleriane Eye Make Up Remover from La Roche Posay.  So about a month ago, I ran out of the little vials and went to my local chemist to pick up another pack.  I wanted to see if they had one big bottle of remover, to save a bit on packaging.  They didn't but they did have a big bottle of the Physiological make up remover.  I love the Physiological cleansing gel so I didn't bat an eyelid at picking this up and at €13.50, it didn't break the bank.

This stuff is the business lads.  I can remove liner from my waterline without any irritation to my eyes.  I've been using it every day since buying it and can safely say I am hooked.  I'll still be bringing the Toleriane vials with me when I'm going away, but for every day home use, Physiological is the one for me.

So ladies, we are sorted thanks to La Roche Posay.  No more red eyeballs!
