I like this makeup remover, but its not as good as the Lancome one. This does the job, and works very similarly to the Clinique take the day off makeup remover. However, I will use this up, probably stick to my usual Avon makeup remover for $1.99.
Horrible product. Removed my eyeshadow easily but just smuged my eyeliner and washable mascara. It's basically expensive water in a bottle. You're better off using soap and water. Compllete waste of money. I will not be repurchasing.
i really think i have been using this stuff since i started wearing makeup (started around 13, 14 and i'm 21 now). this is the only makeup remover (besides bioderma) that removes makeup without an oily residue. to be completely honest, if you're trying to remove a stubborn liquid eyeliner or a waterproof mascara, you're going to be wiping at it for a while. but for cleaning up left over eyeliner, flakes of mascara or making a line more precise this stuff is perfect. it's gotten more and more expensive as the years go by but i'm pretty much dedicated. my only complaint is that i ALWAYS manage to knock it over and it dumps out half the product so i kinda wish the packaging was a little more secure? whatever, this stuff rules. the end.
i love this makeup remover, very clean, not oily at all. Almost like using water however removes all my eye makeup even the hard to budge kind. use it with a qtip or cotton ball. great price i usually buy mine in Harmon drug store for 4.99. it's easy to spot the blue bottle in the aisle. this product does not have a funny smell either, just fresh and clean. just be careful when dipping a qtip in the bottle i always seem to drop a qtip in the bottle every time i get one then have to fish it out but that's just me being clutsy :P
The one I have, looks just like this one but in the green bottle, it's for waterproof makeup. I LOVE THIS STUFF!
I'm surprised to read other reviewers saying that it stings or burns, because the one in the green bottle does not. It might as well be plain water since I feel nothing when it gets in my eyes. And yet, it removes everything. It's super at removing waterproof mascara and stubborn eyeliner, you just need a couple of extra swipes instead of just one or two if you are wearing washable mascara.
I got it on clearance at CVS so it was less than $2 a bottle and I made sure to buy out the store once I knew I had a winner. (Six bottles and I'm down to 4 now.) Once I'm done with my stockpile I will be rebuying where ever I find it, even if that means evil-bay.
I think the only negative is that it would be very easy to knock over the bottle and spill it all over the place, it would be nice if it came in a squirt type bottle instead.
It burns! I don't have a problem if I just dip a cotton bud in it and use it to correct smudges around the eye, but if I soak a pad in it and hold it over my eye to remove mascara and eyeshadow, and even a tiny drop gets in the eye, I will end up with a sore red eye. This is not a problem I have had with any other brand, and I am surprised that L'Oreal can't do better than this.
I used this product a couple of years ago when I wore makeup more often. It effectively removed my eye liner. To be honest, I'm not sure if it did leave a greasy residue, but I don't ever remember being bothered after using it. I'm sure you'll be fine as long as you wash your face after. If I were not using a cleansing oil I'd probably buy this as I'm not fond of using a regular cleanser to remove eye makeup. After all, excessive tugging of the eye area can lead to pre-mature aging of the skin :D
Horrible! Burned my eyes, left oily residue behind as well as most of the waterproof mascara I had on.
I bought the L'oreal Refreshing Eye Make Up Remover because it is oil free and I thought it would be a good easy daily eye mu remover.
When I dip a q tip into the bottle and sweep it across my upper lash line, it STINGS LIKE A MOTHA. You cannot get this stuff anywhere near your eyeball or else even the slightest bit inside your eye will burn so bad - pretty ineffective for an EYE make up remover...I've had the unfortunate experience of having my contacts in while using this and my eyes got so teary and red. You have to put a ton of eye drops in to try and rinse the product out.
This stuff also does not work well with waterproof makeup and just smears it around without taking it off.
Whoa! I can't believe the negative reviews on this product.
This is BY FAR my favorite eye make up remover. I've used Clinique and Lancome but this one takes the prize. It takes off eyeliner, eyeshadow and even waterproof mascara very well. It isn't greasy and oily like most eye make up removers and doesn't burn if it gets in my eyes. It refreshes your eyes just like it says on the bottle. It makes my skin feel so nice and cold. Feels like cool water on your skin.
I'm on my third bottle of this and will keep on buying?
