Almay makes an "oil-free" version of this that is wonderful. I accidentally bought this "moisturizing" version not too long ago. Yikes. It is so greasy and leaves a terrible residue, not to mention all the oil seeped into my eyes and made my vision blurry. I highly recommend the "oil-free" version but stay away from the "moisturizing" version!
This is an okay eye makeup remover. It get almost all of my eye makeup off but I have to use two and scrub it off. The biggest problem is that it's "Moisturizing" pads make my vison blurry and is so greasy I have to wipe it off with a tissue. It lasts a long time but I'm sure there are better eye makeup removers.
I should've known the reviews would be this bad. I can't see after I use these the oil is that thick, and it's messy, difficult to remove mascara and......just pass up if you see these in the store, you'd think they'd recall a product this bad.................
These do an excellent job of removing my super hard to get off Revlon Colorstay eyeliner. But I have to scrub hard to do so, which is annoying and bad for my eyes. Plus, these are SO greasy, it's mostly mineral oil in those pads. Even after I use my regular cleanser my eyes are still greasy and have a film on them, plus my vision sometimes blurs up. I'm going to try the oil free pads once I use these up.
I purchased these pads to keep at my in-laws. I need to buy something better, because the only face wash I have there is Cetaphil and you need something MUCH stronger to remove the residue from these. I have oily skin, so I don't need the moisture, but I wear a stubborn mascara and thought that these would cut my removal time in half. I really can't stand the feel of the greasy oil and I agree with the others; it leaves your vision really blurry. I find that even after I wash my face, I still have hard-to-remove oily mascara under my eyes. It seems like more work than I originally had to do. I prefer to use either Boscia cleansing oil or Pur Makeup Emulsifier to remove all of my makeup, and if I need a seperate remover than Neutrogena dual phase one is better, even if it takes a little extra.
THIS IS MY HG EYE MAKEUP REMOVER!!!!!! I've been using this product for 3+ years, and I CANNOT live without it!!! For all you girls out there who say it is too greasy, that's what makes it soo ace in taking off all your mascara! plus I think the oil has helped keep fine lines from forming around from my eyes!! it's so wonderful! please give it a chance!
Gosh these are bad..they remove the eye makeup alright,they make you half blind for a while(ok ok that is an exaggeration D) I had blurry vision for a while coz of all the oil.The reason i got these pads, just like everyone else was to make life easy..but these are work.It made my skin super oily. I am better off removing the eyemakeup with the jojoba oil..
One of the worst eye m/u removers I've ever used. At least it didn't give me an eye infection, that's the only positive thing I can say about it. It removed about 75% of my waterproof m/u and smeared the remaining 25% around in a greasy mess. I had to wash and wash my face to try to get the oily residue off. It would get into my eyes and make my eyes blurry if I had my contacts in, and sting if I had already taken them out. I personally like to enjoy my beauty rituals of applying makeup, taking it off, etc. I think it's relaxing and enjoyable. But using this product just felt gross and completely sucked all the fun and enjoyment out of my nightly routine. I would never purchase this product again.
I bought this because I thought this would take care of a few steps with the pre-moistened pad ready to go, however those pads make removing waterproof mascara very difficult if not impossible. The whole reason I got this version was to remove waterproof makeup, so that's a disappointment.
These are very oily and ultimately messy which is what I'd wanted to avoid in a pre-moistened eye makeup remover pad.
The work it takes to remove my makeup with these causes irritaion. All in all, a real miss. I don't recommend. continued >>
While the concept of this product is great (a moisturizing eye makeup remover that comes in pre-soaked pads), it just didn't cut it for me. While my eye makeup came right off, the pads left a very heavy, oily residue on my eyes that I had to wash off with water- which completely negated any "moisturizing" effects this product would have. Numerous times, I couldn't get the oily residue to completely wash off and it would film over on my contacts. Yuck! I'll stick with the non-oily version. They don't work as well getting my eye makeup off, but I'm not left with a gross filmy feeling after using them.
