Beauty Review: We love eyes organic cleanser (original post published March 31, 2016)


As an Optometrist by day, I’m very passionate about eye health, and a big part of ocular health is hygiene. Ladies – washing off our eye makeup at night is so, so important to ensure that we don’t develop dry eye syndrome, blepharitis, and infections (yuck!). SO – how do you wash off your eye makeup at the end of a long day of hustling?

I recently came across We Love Eyes – a line of eye cleansing products designed by a fellow Optometrist (and girlboss) from Oakland, CA, Dr. Tanya Gill. After doing some research, Dr. Gill realized that many of the cleansers being recommended by doctors contained ingredients that were exacerbating many of the symptoms that patients complain of – dryness, itching, redness, etc. Her solution was to formulate a collection of products made of plant-based, organic essential oils such as tea tree, jojoba oil and grape seed oil.  The main active ingredient – tea tree oil – is a known antimicrobial and works against bacteria and demodex mites on the eyelashes.  It gets better, all of the We Love Eyes products are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and gluten-free (no I am not kidding)!

“Sleeping around with your eye makeup is a dirty habit”. – Dr Tanya Gill

I obviously had to try this out for myself! The verdict? I. am. obsessed!! These products have become a part of my nightly beauty routine, and it is so easy! All you need is 4-5 drops of the tea tree makeup remover oil on a cotton pad, an effortless sweep, and voila! Makeup? Gone! Follow this up with the tea tree eyelid foaming cleanser to wash away any residual dirt. I absolutely love the clean, fresh feeling of my eyes after this regiment.
