It removes the eyemakep very well but not waterproof mascara. I sould/ve read the bottle more carefully since its for NON-waterproof mascara. I wish it did remove waterproof mascara because I don't like using oil to remove my make-up (my skin is oily enough already).
This stuff is horrid! Safe and opthamologist recommended my behind! This stuff burned the snot out of my eyes! I bought it because it was BOGO at Walgreens. At $5.49 for two bottles I figured WTH? I returned it the next day and went back to using Neutrogena's gentle non-oily makeup remover (the stuff that starts off separated that you have to shake to 'activate').
I can't believe something that is supposed to be SAFE to use on your eyes could burn so badly!
I've liked Almay's eye makeup remover pads, but this gel is quite messy and I have to use quite a bit to dissolve my mascara (which is mostly what I got it for). It stung my eyes and left them red, so this isn't for removing some makeup to apply more and then go out for the night-- you'll look rough.
So, yes it removes eye makeup, but with some work.
Also, this is irritating and messy.
For the price range, you can find better remover at the D/S. continued >>
I just got this, two packages of it, I love when Duane reade has 50% off sales, so I took it upon myself to buy the last two on the shelf. I never tried it before, but I figured I was at no loss since I was getting two for the price of one. It seems fine, people must not be using enough of it, or doing something wrong to give it a low rating. I used a liberal amount, but not to the point where I felt I was wasting, and rubbed some onto my eyes. I waited a moment, and then used a damp cotton pad to wipe the gel off. Very successful, and no raccoon eyes. 3 because it takes a little bit of time, but I don't think I'll ever find a quick makeup remover. Oh well.
I bought this looking for a gentle makeup remover that wouldn't spill. It irritated my eyes and didn't remove the makeup easily. I don't recommend this to anyone.
I am not pleased with this product. It is a very hard gel; I would say it is more of a wax than a gel, so hard that it takes a lot of effort to squeeze a little amount out of the tube. Also due to the hard consistency you have to rub hard on your eyes to spread it. It makes a mess and you have to go back with clean cotton balls to try to clean it. To go through all that and still end up with serious raccoon eyes in the morning is simply annoying. Will not repurchase again!!!
This stuff is effective, it does break down the makeup, but it also leaves behind an annoying film that easily seeps into my eyes and sometimes sting. It's a wonderful concept (gel as opposed to liquid), but I have found baby shampoo to be almost effective and more gentle. I will not repurchase and do not recommend.
terrible terrible product...worst eye makeup remover i ever used =/ feel like you put glue on your eye lashes, all ur eye lashes stick together! and super sticky when you try to wipe it off with pads ....will never buy it again. I really wonder why it's so sticky.....
This product removes most make up but it does not take off everything. I had a previous bad experience with Estee Lauder's eye make up remover where I got burning sensation so the fact that this doesn't burn my eyelids makes me happy. I have to scrub my lids a few times which irritates my skin and even then, there will still be black residue on my lower lids the next morning, and it won't remove the MAC fluidline if it's too close to my lashes.
So what I do instead is use jojoba oil, which actually removes all my eye makeup (olive oil and coconut oil has gotten good reviews on MUA as well).
I would give this 2 lippies but I added a 3rd one because I've found a great use for it! I use a q-tip dipped in Almay's eye make up remover to fix mistakes when i put on eye make up and i will be repurchasing for that use! It removes just enough to fix a mistake and leaves ON enough for me to not have to do everything over again!
This worked fine at removing my eyeshadow, mascara, and concealer. I have yet to use it for taking off eyeliner. It did not sting for me at all, and i have really sensitive eyes. The only thing i don't like is that you have to go over your eyes a few times to get rid of all makeup.
edit: i realized that it doesn't get mascara off as thuroughly and i'd like and it pretty much sucks at taking of fluidline
