My mum has always been product mad, she would have shelves full of creams, lotions and potions, make up, hair products… in fact she still does. She instilled in me at a very early age to look after my skin and thus began my own passion for all things beauty. She is now is her 70s and a couple of years ago she began to have very sensitive eyes and struggled to find a mascara which didn’t leave her eyes red, swollen or runny. Obviously sensitive eyes can affect you at any age so here’s a few lines from my mum to try and help:
“I suffer with sensitive eyes and have trouble finding mascara to suit, I tried lots of different ones. Luckily I came across Eye of Horus with Egyptian moringa oil and found it didn’t affect my eyes at all, I can wear it all day and really recommend trying it.
There seems to be more mascara for sensitive eyes out there now and I also intend to try Clinique high impact mascara and NATorigin lengthening mascara which is approved by Allergy UK. I can also recommend products by Green People, I’ve tried a few of theirs and their mascara is also on my list.
Also be careful which eye make up remover you use. I use Simple kind to eyes and Nivea sensitive caring micellar water. I’ve spent much more on cleansers in the past but these are the ones which suit me now.”
I hope you’ve found that helpful and she will be back making contributions to the blog relating to older skin and the products she loves.
