While I thought I had reviewed everything I bought back in France, I realised I actually haven’t yet. There’s one big and very exciting thing that I haven’t discussed so far and the thing I’m talking about are the Klorane cleansers. The Klorane Floral Face Makeup Remover and the Klorane Eye Makeup Remover. So, today that’s what I’m going to talk about. If you’re interested in finding out more about these two wildly popular skincare products from France, make sure you continue reading!
So, let’s start off with the eye makeup remover and then move on to the face makeup remover. I bought a smaller bottle of the eye makeup remover because my eyes are incredibly sensitive and I didn’t know whether they could handle it or not. The makeup remover comes in a slim dark blue but clear plastic bottle with a white lid. It’s very basic but I do like the look of it. It reminds me of my vacation in France and that’s always a good thing.
The bottle contains 100 ml of product which isn’t too much, but it’s still quite a decent amount. The bottle itself a very compact shape and size so it’s actually the perfect product for on the go. It doesn’t take in much space in your bag at all and since there’s only 100 ml in there, it’s not too heavy either which is an important factor if you’re taking it with you on the plane.

Moving on to the actual product. According to Klorane this is a gentle eye makeup remover. The remover contains cornflower which has soothing and decongesting properties. It de-puffs as well as calms the eye area during and after the process of removing mascara and other eye-makeup. It’s supposed to be suitable to sensitive eyes. The remover has an identical pH to that of tears and is therefore suitable for contact wearers.
Sadly I have to say that I don’t agree with what they’re saying. I have to admit that I have very, very sensitive eyes. The rest of my skin isn’t that bad but my eyes just can’t handle anything slightly too harsh. If I use this my eye area will sting a little and it will start to irritate and become extremely dry. This does happen with a lot of products on my skin so it’s definitely not something that has to happen to you, but it does happen if you do have a very sensitive eye area which is the opposite of what it’s supposed to do according to the claims.
Aside from the bad reaction I get from it, it does remove my makeup pretty decently. It does it in a very mild way which is why I think it could work for people with less sensitive eyes. It also removes the eye makeup very thoroughly. It leaves no trace behind. That’s definitely a very important factor!
Moving on to the big bottle. This is the Klorane Floral Water Makeup Remover with Cornflower. The bottle is really big and contains 400 ml of product. The plastic has a bit of a light tint which actually looks really cool. Something I really like about the packaging is that it has this little thingy on the bottom which you can press in order to release product. It’s a very minor thing, but things like that just make me very happy.
With that being said let’s start talking about the product itself. According to Klorane this is a three-in-one product. It’s a cleanser, toner and makeup remover (which is basically the same thing). It’s supposed to delicately remove all traces of makeup from the face, eyes and lips. It’s cleanses your skin without water and it’s formulated for sensitive skin. The formula is enriched with cornflower extract to soothe and decongest the skin. The formula is free of parabens and sulfates, it’s cruelty-free, hypoallergenic and formulated without fragrance, alcohol and colourant. The cornflower in this product is supposed to relieve tired and irritated eyes.

Just like the eye makeup remover this product does sting around my eye area, which is why I don’t use it for removing eye makeup. On the rest of my skin this doesn’t cause a reaction at all. It doesn’t make my skin feel super sensitive but it also doesn’t break me out or anything like that. It’s actually very gentle and delicate, like they said, and I really like that about this product.
When it comes to removing makeup I have to say it does a good job. But is it outstanding? Not really. It’s a great product but it’s just not mind-blowing. It’s not a product that stands out in my collection. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but it does result in me forgetting about it.
But that’s not why you’re reading this post. You obviously want to know whether those amazing claims are true. Like I said I do get irritation around the eye area so the part where they claim that it reliefs tired and irritated eyes isn’t totally true in my opinion. The other claims aren’t a lie, but obviously do sound a little better than they actually are. I mean, it doesn’t do the opposite of it or anything to prove that it’s not true, but I also don’t really notice an amazing difference in my skin whatsoever. It’s just a basic, mild makeup remover in a really cool bottle and nothing more or less than that.
Overall these Klorane removers haven’t wowed me, but they are definitely okay. The eye makeup remover does hurt my eyes though, but that’s probably because they’re over sensitive. Aside from that I feel like these makeup removers are very nice and gentle and perfect for slightly sensitive skin and I like that they’re free of alcohol, fragrance and things like that. So all together they do what they have to do, but they’re not mind blowing.
And that’s everything I have to say about these two cleansers. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and be sure to let me know if you’ve ever tried anything from Klorane and if so, let me know how you liked it!
