These pads really sting! They do remove eye make up, but for my money I'll stick with my (gentler and cheaper) Almay pads! Won't be buying these again.
I have to agree with thwe other reviewer, these pads really sting! They remove the makeup, but they are not at all gentle. I think I'll stick with Lancome Bi-Facil even though it doesn't quite remove Diorshow mascara.
These work okay (nothing to write home about, but I've had better). However, they burn my eyes so badly! I am not particularly sensitive, but these were awful. Would not recommend these to anyone. Too bad. because the packaging is too cute.
I usually use the Almay eye makeup remover pads, but am a Stila fan, so I wanted to give these pads a try. They do a great job of removing every trace of m/u on both eyes with one pad (regular and waterproof makeup). The formula on the Stila pads is moisturizing and less irritating to my sensitive eyes than the Almay pads. I can use the Stila pads while my contact lenses are still in, which I cannot do with the Almay pads (see my review for the Almay pads for more detail). That is a big plus for me, because I sleep in my lenses several times a week. These pads leave no oily residue, just a clean, fresh feeling. The formula does not cause burning or stinging if the liquid gets into your eye. Of course, they are more expensive than the drugstore pads, but since I find the Stila pads more gentle on my sensitive eye area, I will probably be sticking with these.
I really like these.
The non-oily makeup remover pads from Almay (Almay=A, going forward) have been a staple for me for years. Blame the artist in me, but I mostly picked this up because I loved the container. The A one's boring. These are like 4x's the price of the A pads, but I figured heck - I'll just buy once and refill the container with A. I was pleasantly surprised -- the Stila pads are quite nice. They're actually a wee bit thicker than A; hold up nicely under repeated rubbing. I can do both eyes with one pad. They are soft to the touch, smell awesome (not perfumey, just 'fresh'), and do a fairly nice job of removal. (I don't use waterproof products, so I can't address how they handle those.) Also, they leave my eye area feeling more hydrated than when I use the A. All in all, I'm really pleased with this purchase. continued >>

bottle looks really cute on dressing table. Good for travelling...but its darn difficult taking out the pads, especially if its the last few pieces...sa assured it would remove mu easily & so tested it with the smudge pots...haha...big joke, had to rub quite hard to get rid of the smudge pots. its fairly oily as well. sa couldnt guarantee it could remove waterproof mascara. but i personally fine it too expensive! continued >>
