I was not pleased with this product. I bought this because it specified that it was for sensitive eyes and it claimed to be Canada's No. 1 eye makeup remover. This was extremely oily. I woke up the next morning with the beginning symptoms of a stye and later on in the day noticed I had produced a small whitehead in my undereye region(sexy). When I stopped using this, it went away. I haven't gotten a stye in over 10 years and I'm pretty sure it was from this. Just too heavy and oily
I actually love this product, it does leave an oily feel after you use it, but it goes away quickly, it works really well, and I do recommend.
I’ve used up one bottle of the two I purchased on a 2 for 1 special offer at my local drugstore. Here is my routine: I take a cotton square and soak it with the remover then swipe my eye, I then take a fresh square and repeat on the other eye. I repeat this for both eyes again (essentially using it twice on each eye) and find it still does not remove all my mascara. I find it does sting a bit and leaves me with a greasy residue. I then have to use a cold cream style product to clean up the rest of my mascara.
Note: Currently using Maybelline Plush to give you an idea of the type of mascara…. I digress, to get to the point - my review is I do not recommend.
I was given this free from Elle Canada when I was chosen to blind test products for their readers choice awards. So they had the label covered so I had no idea what I was using and after 1 week I have to say I was unimpressed. This was so greasy, it was like an oil slick and it was irritating as well, also I found it didn't remove makeup as well. The one I did like in the blind test was Nivea eye makeup remover for all skin types.
I only got this for 5 dollars and it works great, takes make up off really easily.
Easy and really affordable.
I am sooo happy to have found this! I was so close to forking out $34 (seriously?!) for Lancome Bi-Facial eye mu remover, when I found this gem at Walmart for $12!! This is almost identical to Lancome in every way. It takes off all my eye makeup with little effort. Highly recommended!!
Well I used to love this product...they changed the packaging recently(the formula too I'm sure). Now this is burning my eyelids so bad!! My eyelids still dries because of that!!
I have the old packaging so it's nice to see they added the newer pop top. Marcelle have been showing up in drugstores lately and is readily available. this can go as cheap as $12 at 5 fl oz compared to MAC Gentle Off eye&lip makeup remover which is $21.50 at 3.4 fl oz.
It does leave a film after using it.
I has zero scent and not dyes are added for colour and has similar ingredient to MAC's

This has been my number one eye make up remover for over 5 years. I have tried many brands and kept finding that most didn't do a great job at getting it all off and many stung my eyes! I found that with other brands I had to rub and rub and rub. Awful for your eye area! I used to use Lancome Bi-Facil eye make up remover and it was wonderful but pricey. Marcelle Gentle Makeup remover gets everything off easily and is made for sensitive skin! It does not sting my eyes and I don't have to sweep my eye area multiple times. I love this product because my eye area is left completely clean. There is new packaging out and I don't like it as much as the old screw off cap. The new package has a pop up lid and I find that I squeeze out more. I use this product in the mornings on the end of a q tip to perfect any eye liner or brow pencil lines. With the new packaging I am wasting more to squeeze it onto the q tip. This is minor, and my only disappointment.
I've been buying this make-up remover for over 6 years now and I have no intention to switch to anything else as it does the great job at removing even waterproof mascara and eye liner and it's perfect for my sensitive skin. All it takes for me is to shake the bottle, moisten a cotton pad and press it against each eye lid for about 10 seconds, wipe and wash my face and I'm good to do. Mineral oils moisturize the skin around my eyes and I never have to worry about chemicals stripping my skin of it's essential oils. My mom is a die-hard Bi-facil by Lancome fan and I suggested she tried it as it's a fraction of the cost she pays for her favourite and she said although she found it "not as soft" as bi-facil, she said that if times got rough, she'd switch to Marcelle as it's second best in show. Everything from the price to quality is great except you have to be careful with product dispensing as you can easily pour too much.
Update 12/16/2010 Got a pesky millia under my eye. Not sure what it was caused by but it wasn't there while I took a long break from makeup. I keep using the remover and don't see any additional popping out but it may be caused by it. Maybe I'll try jojoba oil or EVOO as my makeup remover.
