19-year-old student feared that she would become blind after Garnier cleaning product & # 39; her eyelids were glued shut and her apple of the eye burned & # 39;
- Jade Inglis used the cleaning water soaked with micellar oil before going to bed
- When she woke up, she said her eyelids were glued shut & # 39; and the eyeball was burned
- In the hospital her eye was washed with a solution that was used by victims with acid attacks
A student claims that a Garnier cleansing product burned her eyeball when she removed eye makeup.
Jade Inglis, 19, used the micellar oil-soaked cleansing water earlier this month before going to bed.
Despite the fact that she didn't notice anything before she went to sleep, she said the next morning that she was forced to peel her right eyelid, because it was glued shut with a sticky discharge and was afraid she would become blind.
Doctors used a dye in the eye of Jade Inglis to inspect the damage and the wear came out as a glowing green sign

Jade hurried to A&E where astonished hospital staff washed her eyes with a solution used for victims of assault.
After using an orange dye to assess the damage, doctors discovered that Jade had a chemical burn on her eyeball, presumably caused by the £ 6.99 micellar water.
The wear emerged under the dye as a glowing green mark.

Jade, from Cambridge, said: “It felt like sunburn to my eyes, the pain was unbearable.
& # 39; When my eye turned green from the paint I looked like Poison Ivy from the Batman movies, luckily it faded after a few hours.
& # 39; I was terrified of losing my eyesight when I heard that I had a chemical abrasion on my eye – the first thing I was asked was whether it was permanent or not.
& # 39; They took into consideration the PH level of my eye – the level in my right eye was higher than perhaps what was left – and then they used a solution for my eye that I was told was used for victims with acid to attack.
& # 39; I had to lie there for 20 minutes with the tube in my eye, it was horrible.
& # 39; He was held in place with a small suction cup that looked like a toilet plunger around my entire eye. It was so uncomfortable, I have never felt such a thing.
& # 39; They could see a huge wear on my student from the chemical burn, that's the green on the photo, and said it would heal by itself. & # 39;
Jade called 111 because no GPs were open on a Saturday and was told to go to A&E where astonished hospital staff washed her eyes with a solution that was used for victims with acid attacks
Jade received pain relief and antibiotics and was sent home, but was forced to make another trip to A&E during a trip to visit her boyfriend in Sheffield two days later, when there was no improvement.
Garnier & # 39; s micellar oil-soaked cleansing water is convinced that it is for dry and sensitive skin, it & # 39; cleans and nourishes & # 39; and is suitable for use on face, eyes and lips.
The Garnier blurb website reads: & # 39; For the first time, Garnier Micellar technology has been formulated with oils. The micelles (cleansers) catch impurities such as a magnet and remove dirt from the skin, while the oils instantly dissolve all types of makeup. & # 39;
Garnier & # 39; s micellar oil-soaked cleansing water (which Jade is holding in the photo) is advertised as being for dry and sensitive skin and suitable for use on face, eyes and lips.
The student Jade from Anglia Ruskin University is now urging Garnier to remove the product from the shelves so that no one else suffers the same painful injury it has.
Jade said: & # 39; If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone, I don't want anyone else to experience the pain that I have – it was horrible.
& # 39; I am not allergic to anything and because it only happened in one eye, it is clearly a chemical burn and not an allergic reaction. The bottle says it is a product for face, eyes and lips. & # 39;
A Garnier spokesperson said: “Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water, like all products in our Garnier range, undergoes thorough testing to ensure that it is safe to use even on sensitive skin.
& # 39; Our consumer advice team is currently in discussions with Jade to understand the facts surrounding its specific experience & # 39 ;.
