Best eye makeup remover I have ever used! Just got done with my 4th bottle!
This makeup remover is workable for me. It is quite a bit like Clinique's "Take the Day off". Even the packaging is similar. However, because of that, I have the same issues with both products. The oily residue ends up left on your eye and you have to remove it with another remover or cleanser. Also, when I've gotten this product in my eye it has stung and felt really uncomfortable. You get quite a bit of this product in a bottle, but it takes more than Clinique's remover to do the same job. That's always something to keep in mind of course. Personally, I'm abandoning all removers I've used before and trying new ones and alternative ways of taking off makeup including gel removers instead of oily liquids.
This is a great eye makeup remover. It got all my makeup off with no tugging, stinging, or redness. I do find it a little odd that they state it's "oil-free" when obviously it's not. You can feel the oil left behind on your lids. Anyhoo, it doesn't bother me and the product works like a charm.
I was in desperate need of a new eye make up remover since the one I bought wasn't taking off my Maybelline full n' soft. I was looking around in Target for a makeup remover that would work with me but I was pretty skeptical about this one after reading the most helpful reviews. I still ended up buying it since it had a pretty high rating.
The one thing that I hate is that it wasn't "oil free" like it said. You can OBVIOUSLY see the oil above the water. Anyways, after using it for the first time, my eye sight got a little blurred but it wasn't too bad. It was a good thing I took my contacts off beforehand though. Anyways, after washing off the remover solution, my eyelids were pretty soft and it took about two washes with just water and my face towel.
I thought it didn't work too well at first since I kept wiping my eyelashes to get the mascara off and nothing was getting on the cottonball. After a few more wipes, it started to come off. I didn't use too much solution though since I didn't want to get it in my eye(even though I did anyways).
Overall, it's an okay makeup remover. Just be careful and try not to get it in your eyes!
Although I'm sure I could find a makeup remover that removes more quickly, I like this one. It works, doesn't smell too awful, and doesn't irritate my skin. I've even gotten it directly in my eye before and felt fine.
It's for sale in almost every drug store and affordable too so I'll probably keep buying it. One bottle lasts a long time.
Works well, gets most of my eyemakeup (mascara, liquid liner) off with one cotton ball... per eye ;) Does what it's supposed to do and hasn't caused any reactions!
After starting on a regular day to day regular make up regimen, I tried Neutrogena oil free make up remover to remove my waterproof eye make up (Mac Fluidline eyeliner, waterproof mascara, etc).
Although it's oil free, it does feel awfully oily but nothing a little face wash can't fix. It doesn't irritate my eyes and gets most of the make up off my eye area (still leaves remnants of make up behind).
It's an inexpensive alternative to pricier make up remover and it gets the job done.
First off, I have combo-oily skin and occasionally break out in acne. I've used makeup-removing towelettes as well as Maybelline's Waterproof Makeup Remover, but if I were to continue buying a commercial makeup remover this is the one I would recommend for those who have oily skin and want a good waterproof makeup remover that doesn't contain oil. I've also used the Equate version (Wal-mart generic) and it does the same thing.
Give the bottle a good shake, hold a cotton ball to the opening of the bottle, press against your eyes for 10-15 seconds so it dissolves your most stubborn waterproof makeup, and wipe gently. It does leave an oily-like residue after removing the makeup (despite being oil-free), but this is hardly as bad as the Maybelline waterproof makeup remover, which is heavily oily! So go about your usual cleansing routine afterward to get rid of the oily feeling and you're good!
For those who don't see oil as a problem another healthier, a more natural and inexpensive alternative is to mix 4 parts water or aloe water and 1 part olive oil, and repeat the paragraph above.
As far as packaging goes, the hole in the bottle is just big enough for you to fit a cotton ball onto it so generally it's not very messy, but it can be a pain cleaning the bottle if you spill, since the remover can also cause the plastic label to peel off the bottle.
This dries out my skin a bit, but it completely removes all of my makeup. it easily removes my waterproof mascara, gel eyeliner, and i sometimes use it to wipe off my heavy coverage foundation.
What I do is dampen my cotton pad in makeup remover. And then press it against my closed eye for about 15 seconds. This allows it to saturate and break down the makeup. Then wipe the makeup away using gently.
- I am allergic to just about everything, including SLS and formaldehyde - and this proved not irritating at all.
- Thoroughly removes even stubborn Colorstay liner and waterproof mascara.
- They say it's oil-free but, damn, it sure feels oily!
- Kinda expensive for a drugstore product.
Just started using a couple of weeks ago - not sure if I will buy again although the lack of irritation might bring me back with a coupon.
