I picked a small bottle of this up at the Sephora check out after my HG Balms Away remover dissapeared for a week while my daughter was out of town. I thought that because it was from BE I'd have better luck because most liquid removers irritate my eyes pretty badly or just dont work well. This removes well but is about impossible to remove completely from your eye/lash line even if I wash with soap and water after so some eventually migrates into my eyes causing irritation and blurriness. I don't know what kind of skin benefits this could possibly provide your eye area because even a tiny amount on a q-tip for a touch up doesn't absorb at all and is a bigger pain to remove than the run away eye liner. Make sure that you absolutely do not use this within a couple days of an eyebrow wax or be sure to use toner thouroughly or you could be in for a nasty break out. I used this remover about 24 hours after a wax to get off some long wear eyeshadow and my skin went crazy. I had a break out in both brow areas. Not a good look. This stuff just leaves a resudue that doesn't want to come off and clogs pores. My Balms Away is back from vacation so maybe I can finish this stuff off by using it for manicures. I'm glad it works for some and it does remove well but what good is a remover that needs a remover?
This is my Holy Grail make up remover. It is a bit pricey but it does not make my eyes or skin burn that most products and that is a huge plus. It leaves a moist feeling, so I just take a towel when down and do a once over to remove the left over oil feeling. This product removes everything.
Unfortunately, I do not like this at all. There are three reasons:
-If you get the makeup remover into the eyes, it stings like a bitch. Also your eye sight get very cloudy.
-The bottle leaks, and it is therefore hard to travel with.
-It leaves a greasy film after use.
As it happens, it does remove eye makeup well, and on FeelUnique the price is not bad, about 12 GBP for 50 ml. But it is not worth it. At all.
This removes makeup well, but it gave me swollen eyelids! The only way it didn't give me swollen eyelids was to follow these steps:
1. Wash my eyelids with soap and water
2. Shake the bottle as directed and use a Q-tip and a small dab of this make-up remover to remove excess make-up
3. Wash my eyes thoroughly with water
This product claims to soothe and replenish the tender skin around the eye area, but I would not recommend this to people with sensitive skin. continued >>
I have to share this with you ladies. BE e/s remover is the best!!! It will take off any eye makeup that you have. I have never seen this product advertised at all. So, by word of mourth, I am spreading the word. I have used this product for over a year and with the Halloween makeup I had on, waterproof to the max!! no problem getting it off. Not only does your eye makeup come off with ease, this product actually conditions your eye lashes. I have seen new lashes that prior to me using this product I havent seen in years! Again, thanks Leslie for this product!! Spread the word!!
I love most things Bare Minerals, but this product made my eyes BURN. It hurt so bad and my eyes were red and irritated and the skin was peeling after the first use! I would not recommend this to anyone!
I have never really been a fan of eye makeup removers. They usually are oily, ineffective, or make my eyes sting. Not so with this wonderful product! It takes everything off. Even waterproof mascara. It actually does feel refreshing on my eyes and doesn't irritate or burn or making anything itch. I have even opened my eyes during application and found this to be the case. There isn't any greasy feeling - just a clean refreshing feeling. It is a fantastic product and completely easy to use.
I got this because I wanted a cheaper alternative to Lancome's Bifacil eye makeup remover. Well, it removed my waterproof mascara and eyeliner but it also stung my eyes. It also didn't remove the mascara as easily as the Bifacil does.
i have trouble finding a good eye makeup remover that i like. i have tried them all and really like this one. it takes my eye makeup off right away. so many others i have tried you have to scrub and countless cotton balls later it is finally off. this is a one cotton ball type of thing and i love it. reasonable price and it's a pretty blue! :)
I thought that because this is a BE product, it would prove to be yet another winner. However, there are a feew problems with it. First, packaging. I can't stand the top. I wish they had given it a flip top instead of a push down top which gives me a harder time controlling the amount I put on my cotton pad or q-tip. And second, consistancy. I understand that the oil in the product is used for moisturizing and for getting rid of waterproof makeup. It's way too oily for my liking. I find that I'm constantly wiping off my eyes with a cotton pad to get rid of the greasiness. This is not for me.
