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
This is the best eye-makeup remover I've used (I've tried Nivea, L'Oreal, Estee Lauder, Clarins etc). It doesn't irritate my eyes; it effective at removing mascara, only takes a few swipes; and it's only £2.50. The only minor issue is if you completely remove the seal on a new bottle, too much lotion comes out, a suggestion is to just pierce a small hole through it.
ehh well i bought this once. and it was OK. so i repurchased it on a buy one get on 50% off deal at walgreens, but now im starting to regret it. i wear a lot more make up now than i did when i bought this the first time, and it shows me that this make up remover isnt very good for taking off lots of eye make up. its just for the touch-up stuff. well, i guess ill use the 2 bottles i have left and then see where i go from there.
what is this stuff? acid? butane? it is horrible. for sensitive eyes? what? i don't think so. didn't even take off my makeup. and i hardly wear any. a black mascara applied lightly is mostly what i wear. this didn't even take it off with multiple cotton balls. the next morning i had more mascara under my eyes. it also just burned and made my eyes water. i wanted to like it because it was oil free and i hate oil around and getting into my eyes....but this sucks. i think i'll try jojoba oil to remove it.
