I loved these makeup remover pads for years. I discovered eyeliner in the early 90s, and I had a little pink and white jar of Almay makeup remover. I never strayed because they worked exactly the way I wanted.I stocked up several times when I spotted them at Big Lots, for fear they were being discontinued, but it was usually just packaging updates.Then this most recent new package showed up. It said nothing about being reformulated, it boasted about how it's the #1 selling makeup remover.The first night, my eyes BURNED. I blamed my new mascara, because Almay had never let me down. But the burning continued.I compared ingredient labels, the older jar I had vs the new jar.Almay, the company that markets toward people who are sensitive, decided to add BENZYL ALCOHOL to a product you apply to your eyes. 20+ years of a great formula, that earned them the #1 spot, and they decided all us sensitive types would appreciate a little alcohol rubbed in our eyes, I guess.Sadly seeking a new makeup remover.

Um, ouch. I am soooooo glad i got this for free, or else i would be ticked that i wasted money. ($4 off any almay product coupon, plus it was on sale for $2.99) These babies buuuuurn, and i dont even have sensitive lids or eyes. And, i went through darn near the entire container the first time i used them. Cool. I used up about 75% of them, but ditched it when my eyes became flakey and sore. Not to mention i lost about 2 eyelashes every night in battle. Gave it 2 lippies for just the idea of it, kind of like the convenience. Save your money, I am switching back to mineral oil. Should have never strayed.

I've been using these for as long as I can remember. They are the only eye-makeup remover product I use. I wear contact lenses, and these are great for me because they don't leave any oily residue on my eyes or lenses. I also love that the pads don't leave cotton fuzzies on or in my eyes (unlike when using liquid remover and cotton balls/rounds.) Some reviewers complained about the small size of the pads, but that is a positive for me because I can use just the number I need with no wasted surface area. For removing light eye-makeup, I might need only one or two. For removal of more pigmented shadows/liner and mascara, I often use four or five. If the pads on top seem dry (especially when opening a new container), this is because the liquid has settled to the bottom. A trick I use is to flip the stack of pads over. The lower layer of pads will be perfectly saturated and in time, the dry ones will re-moisten.

Very convenient, and I like the round shape of the pads, but they burn my eyes if I'm not EXTREMELY careful, and it often takes several of them to cleanse each eye, even if I'm wearing light mascara.. and after use, there is always a bit of an oily residue left.

This was just terrible. Not only did my eyes sting when I was using them, but my eyelids literally had chemical burns on them after just a few consecutive days of use. Besides that, I had to use 3 or 4 pads on each eye, so I went through them extremely fast.

For years these pads have been on various "best product" lists. I finally gave in to the hype and tried them. My initial thoughts were that they would be convenient for travel and lazy nights. Unfortunately they are not saturated with enough product and it took at least 2 pads per eye to get my makeup off. Removing mascara resulted in several lost lashes and stinging lids from too much rubbing. I will use up the rest of the tub and go back to my trusty Neutrogena remover.

Bought this online when I opened it I was hesitant to even use it because it smelled like pure alcohol. I wouldn't ever put these wipes near my eyes again. They don't fully remove eye makeup with just one wipe, you need to use a few. It doesn't seem to make a difference if you use both baby powder and mascara on your eyelashes.

I got these makeup remover pads in a care package from my mother. I wear a lot of eye makeup and am always on the hunt for something that makes taking all that makeup off at night an easier task. Now, these pads do a great job of removing the eye makeup. But, they are thin and small and it usually takes about two or three to get one eye completely clean. Even on light days where I am only wearing mascara it takes two pads to completely remove the makeup. So I went through one of these containers fairly quickly due to the fact that I had to use more than one per time I used them. Secondly, this stuff BURNS. Even when I had my eyes closed as tightly as I could, my eyes were STILL burning. I don't know what is in this product that causes this burning, but it is so unbearable. I plan on finishing the container I have and I do not plan on purchasing this item myself, ever. It's an okay price, and the packaging is alright but the burning and running out quickly is not worth it.

These oil-free eye makeup remover pads are effective for gently removing my eye makeup while also not drying out the skin. They are unscented and safe to use when I have lash extensions on. My makeup just seems to dissolve so quickly with one gentle swipe, which is great because I never have to tug at my skin. My skin has become increasingly sensitive over the past few years, but fortunately I've never experienced the negative side effects that other reviewers have described. Sometimes in a hurry I'll use these wipes to clean my face (not sure if that's bad or not!) and I've never had a reaction. In terms of packaging, the container remains intact while loose in my handbag, and the wipes have always stayed moist and not dried out. They come in a convenient 80 count ($5) container which is small enough to keep in my handbag, and I refill it from the 120 count ($7) container which I keep at home. I find the product itself to be a bit pricey, but until I find something else that is competitively priced and gives me the same results and convenience, this one is a keeper.UPDATE 4/20/15: After a few weeks these pads started drying out my eyelids and making them slightly swollen, I am guessing from an allergic reaction. It's a shame because these work well to easily remove eyeliner and mascara. Unfortunately I've had to modify my overall rating from 5 lippies to 3 lippies.
