I really like this eye makeup remover. I find it to be as effective as Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover and more effective than any other remover I've used at removing my light eye makeup (eyeliner and eye shadow, no mascara). And it never irritates my eyes. Yet it's a lot less expensive than the Clinique, which costs $18.50 for 4.2 ounces while the Philosophy costs only 50 cents more for 6 ounces. Plus, I can get the Philosophy in-store at my local Ulta, so it counts toward my reward points there.

This product is too pricey for what it doesn't really accomplish. I had to use a lot of this to get off my waterproof mascara, and when it does removes it removes in black particles which gets into my eyes.

pros: gentle and doesn't dry out the skin around my eyes.

cons: expensive. doesn't remove waterproof mascara well. need a lot of product to remove the eye makeup.

It's alright. What I did was keep the seal on but I just opened it a tiny bit to release a small amount of the product. It would be much more beneficial if it had a stopper of some sort.

This isn't exactly a cheap buy, but it's also not horribly expensive either.

Even though it says it's oil free, it feels oily, or slippery.

None that I've noticed.

-Removes makeup soooo easily

-Not the most affordable– there are definitely some cheaper alternatives
-No stopper or pump or anything like that

I really like this remover. With one swipe most of my makeup starts to come off already! It's a great product and removes the toughest of makeup easily. Simple as that. I would most definitely repurchase this.

This is the first eye makeup remover I have tried and I love it. It takes off all my eye makeup without stinging my eyes. I wish it was cheaper. I plan to try the neutrogena one next. If that does not work as well as the philosophy one I will definitely repurchase.

This is the best eye makeup remover I've ever used. I've tried a good amount of drugstore eye makeup removers, but none are as gentle and effective as this and I looove it. The price is a bit steep, but I find it worth it for sure.

Great formula, as long as I remember to shake it before applying to my cotton pad. Incredible change from what I was using - a brand labeled as "sentitive" but more like blinding fire water. It removes waterproof mascara. If I'm patient enough to sit for a whole minute pressing a JRM moistened cotton pad to each eye, it all comes off in a single, gentle sweep.

What I don't like is the price. $How much? I also wish they would add a squeeze-lid or flip up to the top. A softer plastic bottle and a way to squeeze a stream onto cotton pads/balls would save product and help prevent contamination. I also hate that I forget to shake it to mix the two formulas. I accept 60% of the responsibility for that, but by the time I get to take off my makeup, I need someone with a loud hailer to remind me to shake the bottle.

I don't plan on buying this again, but I might have to settle for it if drug store labels can't produce a truly sensitive EMR that WORKS.

I love this product! I've gone through so many eye makeup removers and all of them would burn my eyes but this one doesn't! If you get this, you just have to remember to shake the bottle before using it or else its very oily! Overall, skip getting the other makeup removers & just get this one!

I bought this out of the blue just to give it a try because my hunt for a good eye makeup remover was going nowhere in the drugstore & I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It was so gentle on my eyes. It didn't burn like other brands have done to me & it took off any trace of eye makeup I had on. I tried it on waterproof mascara & what do you know? It was all gone! I will be buying more of this.

SO GOOD. love it. wipes away ANY makeup i throw at it in 1 swipe, even my super SUPER waterproof gosh eyeliner (takes a couple of swipes) while other makeup removers makes me cry (from pain in all the rubbing).

I'm impressed with how well something so gentle and non-greasy can remove eye makeup so well. Definitely a winner!
