Not surprised at the low reviews. This one could not remove my eye makeup at all.
If you want to try a lotion eyemakeup remover, the Body Shop's Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover worked wayyyy better than this product. That one only has a slightly higher rating on MUA. However, I have been using it for the last few years, and I do think it works well and is worth a try.
Meh. Middle of the road. I needed to follow up with other cleansers and an acne wipe.
Ughhh i do NOT like this product. the concept of lotion makeup remover sounds good but it doen't remove makeup!! my normal every day lotion removes makeup better.
I can't comment on effectiveness beyond removal of heavy sunscreen, concealer, and non-waterproof eyeliner/mascara. For that, it works very well and doesn't clog my pores. The perfumey scent is unpleasant, however, I saw it at Big Lots and the price was right. EDIT: At first I had no problems with the fragrance other than simply disliking it. However, over time, I became sensitized to the fragrance (i.e., due to repeated exposure, I developed a sensitivity/allergy to the fragrance--itching, burning, rash) and had to throw it out. I'll leave it at two points because it otherwise works well, but if you have even somewhat sensitive skin, stay away.
This make up remover was just OK. But it does not work very well at all to remove my waterproof mascara. I find that my Ponds cold cream works far better at removing my make up. I also noticed that the Olay make up remover slightly irritated the skin around my eyes which I am not happy with at all. I only recommend this make up remover for light every day makeup--but do not expect it to do wonders.
definitely did not remove all my waterproof revlon mascara...not reccommended for contact lense users! I got it thinking that it would be more gente than oil-based removers...not the case! quite irritating. even with vaseline I was able to remove more eye makeup.
omg this is the best drug store makeup remover I have used in a long itme . it takes off waterproof budge proof eyemakeup so so easy it crazy.. and gentle enough that it does not burn my eyes in the least .. I am so happy that i tried this have used many tubes since its launch in the us.. thumbs up on this one
I'm surprised at the low reviews for this stuff. I'm reasonably impressed. I prefer lotion-style eye makeup removers since the watery-types always irritate the skin around my eyes. I don't wear contacts, so can't comment there. I usually end up using vaseline to remove eye makeup, followed by wiping off the vaseline with a makeup wipe. I then proceeded to wash my face (as usual) with my normal cleanser which is great, but leaves me with raccoon eyes if I don't use a eye makeup remover before hand. That was too many steps if you ask me.
For this stuff, I squeezed a little bit on a cotton ball then rubbed it across my closed eye and the mascara came off pretty easily. Afterward, my eyes didn't feel dry, they didn't burn, and I didn't need to apply a light coat of vaseline around my eyes to soothe them afterwards (which is typically the case after using watery removers). I don't see how useful this product would be for removing makeup across your entire face before washing, unless you're wearing a TON of makeup or didn't have a really good cleanser, but I do appreciate it's value for removing eye makeup and lipstick, which is the reason I bought it. Next time, I'll skip the cotton ball and apply directly with my fingers which I think will work just fine. Found it for $5 at Big Lots. Not bad.
I wish there was a "maybe: option so bad for this on would I buy again!!!! UGHHH!!! Anyways, I like that this is a lotion, it smells very nice, and for the most part it does remove my mascara. Here are my cons: it does not remove liner very well and it does not remove my mascara completely. For what it is worth though, I do think I would re-purchase mainly because of the lotion factor.
I bought this when I ran out of Maybelline eye makeup remover and I don't like this at all.
1) There is a sickly sweet perfumed smell.
2) It burns my eyes. I wear contacts and this is a problem. Thankfully, I wasn't wearing contacts the few times I used this.
It feels like a cool, thick lotion going on, but that's about the only plus. I have to use a lot of this to remove a very small amount of Rimmel liquid eyeliner and Full ' N Soft mascara. I haven't tried it to remove makeup because I don't wear much, but it's not effective in removing what I do wear.
I'm going back to removing everything with Pond's Cold cream and will use this to remove makeup when I swatch.
