I recently filmed a YouTube video of my September Favourites (Video Here) and shared my favourite Eye Make Up Remover at present from Ahava’s Time to Clear range. Here is the review on this fabulous product I was sent and my thoughts on whether I think it will be suitable for you…
A little information about Ahava’s Time to Clear Eye Make Up Remover…
AHAVA UK, the highly respected Dead Sea mineral skin care specialist, has added a new gentle yet highly effective face care product to its Time To Clear range; Eye Make Up Remover.
Enriched with Dead Sea ingredients and herbal extracts of Aloe Vera, Calendula and Cucumber, Eye Make Up Remover has a special two-phase formula that effortlessly removes all traces of make-up and then soothes, calms and hydrates the delicate skin around the eyes, to leave it feeling fresh and clean. This gentle cleansing solution also benefits from being free of fragrances, parabens and SLS/SLES, is allergy tested and suitable for all to use, including those with sensitive skin or eyes.

Being a massive fan of Ahava products I went into this review with extremely high expectations. I have found their products to be of an extremely good quality and use 2 of their products on clients when working. Their Time to Clear Eye Make Up Remover is no exception to this rule.
I have always loved the generic packaging of Ahava products, the serene packaging is calming and peaceful – it always makes me think of natural ingredients.
The Time To Clear Eye Make Up Remover is a (In my opinion) a concentrated product. You don’t need a large amount to achieve your goal. In fact I found I use half the amount of this eye make up remover compared to my other old one. Its also extremely gentle on the eyes. I don’t find I need to rub much at all and even the most stubborn waterproof liners and mascaras come away.
TIP – One tip I’ve found with this eye makeup remover is to pop some on some cotton pads (Pads work better than balls for this) and pat and hold them on your eyes for about 15 seconds, then wipe gently. By doing this I find it pulls away more of the makeup from the eyes and its more gentle than constantly rubbing such a delicate area.
I started using this product when my eczema and psoriasis were extremely aggravated on my eyes due to stress and getting over illness. If there was ever going to be a reaction to this product it would be now, but I can say that my eyes have had no irritation what so ever! In fact, my psoriasis on my inner corner of my eye at present which is extremely uncomfortable has felt soothed and less itchy after using this product. Also, if you do get this remover in your eyes, it doesn’t sting!
I have used nothing else since using this product and can say it will be hard to replace it with anything else. I am in love with this Eye Make Up Remover and feel that Time to Clear is one of the best ones out there for people who have sensitive eyes and skin. I will be definitely repurchasing this product when its ran out!
One note I made in my September Favourites video which I will add here from a therapists point of view (For those who haven’t seen the video), I’m not sure this Eye Make Up Remover would be suitable for those who wear Lash Extensions. Due to it having a slightly oily composition I feel it may weaken the bonds of the lash glue. I can’t say this for sure, but wanted those who do wear extensions on their lashes to be aware.
Ahava Time To Clear Eye Make Up Remover costs around £14.50 for 125ml of product, you can purchase it directly from Ahava. This may seem a pricey item to taking off your eye make up, however I do feel it will last a fair while. Also, for those who do suffer with sensitive skin, eczema and/or psoriasis I feel its a worthwhile investment and you may end up loving it as much as I do!
