WHATTT! im really surprise at how many people that says this couldn't take off makeup well. Living in a blazing hot and humid country, I only wear waterproof products. I'm talking about industrial strength waterproof not just water resistance. Mac Liquidlast eyeliner(i wore this to swim all the time and it wouldn't budge), Covergirl Lash blast waterproof, Maybelline XXL (double sided) waterproof AND THIS MAKE UP REMOVER IS THE ONLY THING THAT WILL GET IT OFF!. The trick is to soak a cotton pad and leave it on the eye for a couple of seconds before sliding it down. DONT USE Cotton Swop because it will drag your eyes and cause wrinkles. LOVE THIS PRODUCT
Im on my third bottles now and have 3 more in stock because they dont sell this where I live currently :(
Until recently, I used this stuff for years. I thought it was a great deal for my "sensitive eyes." Gets makeup off quickly. But my eyes were still sensitive, often bloodshot.
Then, after a lovely Lancome MUA told me my eyelids are incredibly dry--SO dry that the kohl pencil she used on my lid actually dragged--I had an epiphany. I went home, checked the ingredients, and there was the culprit: ALCOHOL. Fortunately, I'd bought Lancome Effacil Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Used that at night and the next morning, and my eyes were immediately much better. Within a few days, all excessive dryness gone.
Long story short, if your eyes are sensitive, don't use this stuff.
I usually like all things Neutrogena, and this stuff does a good job of dissolving my waterproof mascara and eyeliner, but after using it for a while, I also noticed it dried out my eye area, giving me gross little white flakes. Discovered regular old olive oil works just fine, and doesn't dry out my skin.
I use make-up removing clothes to clean my eyes but it's often not enough to deal with my eyeliner and mascara. That's where this stuff comes in- it's like magic!
It removes tough eyeliner and mascara like nothing. My only warning is that if you're using it to help touch your make-up up (for example thinning an eyeliner line) to be careful. This remover is very powerful and a bit watery so it can smudge onto make-up you want on.
The formula actually has two layers (so it looks similar to oil and water, but this remover is oil-free) and is supposed to be used after being shaken (so says the back of the bottle).
My suggestion is to pour a little into the cap or other small cup. I personally use Q-tips to touch up make-up so I only use a little bit at a time. As for actually removing make-up, I add a little bit of this solution to my removing wipes and it works like a charm.
really it is very good. I've been using it for 7 years.
I bought cause it's in P. Begoun's list. It feels soft, my waterproof mascasa goes off with one wipe,
reading the ingredients, I am worry about the benzyl alcohol.
Alcohol on you eyelids should be no good, right?
Anyone can tell me more on this?
I seem to have fairly sensitive skin, especially around my eyes. This stuff is so irritating. It feels oily and leaves my eyes all flaky and raw. It also takes a couple swipes to get the makeup off.
I really like this product. Perfect for my acne prone skin, it takes all the makeup off without causing blemishes or pimples. I'm finishing my second bottle !
I love Lacomes Bi Facil, but it is pricy and I decided to try a drugstore brand instead. The Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover (oil free) was a pretty good dupe. I needed to really moisten my cotton pad (not ball, more like a cotton square), but it did remove my water proof mascara and all other eye makeup. It leaves behind a little residue, so I just wet my eye area with a face cloth afterwards. Its a decent alternative to the pricier stuff. I like that it's non irritating and lasts at least one month.
I know that this is a popular product and is a favorite of beauty bloggers and makeup mavens alike, but Iím not really enjoying this product so much. For its claim to be oil-free, it feels greasy as hell. Iíd take out my eye makeup with this and it leaves an oily residue even after I rinse with water. My Lancome Bi-Facil contains oil, but that does not feel greasy AT ALL the way this does.
The good thing about this remover though is it doesnít sting so itís gentle on the eyes and it still performs pretty well as a makeup remover. Iím just bothered by its greasiness especially since it claims to be ďoil-free.Ē That said, I will definitely save up for the Lancome Bi-Facil or find another alternative and will not repurchase this after I finish the bottle.
