This can be found on the Estee Lauder website 100ml for £18. This is also on a wide variety of websites with lots of different prices such as tottoteenstore.com is selling this for £23.46 for 100ml AZperfun £20.58 However there are a number of listings one ebay for this product, sample size 50ml or 60ml is going from anything between £7 - £10 and the 100ml the cheapest I have found is £14.24 including postage. Although you can buy this separate, when I bought my foundation from this bran at Binns [House of Frasher] I got a free sample of this.
This is in a small bottle the 50ml is approximately 5 inches tall including the lid however I would imagine the 100ml is double this so you're actually getting a lot for your money when you buy this. It is a bluey purple colour which is see-through and gold writing on it. On the back of mine there is no English instructions anywhere which is a massive downside if you have never used this product as you wouldn't know how to apply or use correctly, perhaps the normal 100ml has the English instructions on but the travel size has not.
To use just unscrew the lid and place a cotton pad on the top and tip upside down quickly then back again as you really don't need it soaking as you're using it on your eyes, they're very sensitive so it'd be useful not to drip this is them. Just have a quick wipe around this is brilliant for getting off mascara even if it's really thick. Compared to make up wipes they are nothing compare to this, with wipes you can never really get all mascara off right to the lash line but this can and it's a miracle because I was getting annoyed of wiping my make up off but then still waking up with panda eyes.
I've found that when I've wiped all my make up off including my eyes, that you still have excess on your face, so i'll also use another cotton pad with this and gone round my full face, despite it being only designed for eyes this removes all left behind makeup as well and you might be surprised when look back on the cotton pad how dirty your face still is, so go do the full face with this afterwards, although this will make your face very dry so straight after get to the bathroom and wash your face and moisturize with your normal products an it makes no difference except your face is now fully clean not partially clean.
It's been 3 months since I've had this, keeping in mind this is my first ever bottle of this, got 3 months ago free with my foundation, it's only a travel sample size which is 50ml, I use this everyday and I still have a quarter left in the bottle.
If I walked into a shop and looked at the price before reading upon it i'd stick my nose up and refuse to pay the expensive price that it is, But if 100ml will last 6 months and it works on the full face, you wouldn't have to buy face wipes which are approximately £2 and I buy one every week that works out at £48 in 6 months for face wipes when you can buy one of these for £20 I've now done the working out for you, so go and buy this! it doesn't make sense not to buy this, I will recommend this to anyone who asks.
