i love vichy skincare products so i decided to buy this. it's gentle as it claims, i use this when i have my contacts on and it never stings my eyes. only downfall is that it doesn't exactly help with removing your make-up. i probably have to use so much of this product to get rid of my make-up but i still have to use cleansing wipes and a toner to get rid of the make-up. it's quite pricey and not worth your money. unless you're only using eyeliner, i wouldn't suggest you to purchase this.
it's absolutely rubbish. like someone said, it wouldn't work whether it's waterproof or normal mascara you used. i got a free sample and thought it's perfect size to take on holiday and regretted it so much as i was on a remote island and there wasn't anywhere to buy alternative remover!! don't waste your money on this!
Its gentle enough for the eyes. But its useless at removing waterproof makeup. I have to keep rubbing and rubbing the cotton pad over my eyes and I still have part of my eye make-up left. If you use long-lasting waterproof make-up like MUFE, this cleanser doesn't work. Please don't waste your money and go get something else.
THANK GOODNESS THIS WAS A FREE SAMPLE! I hate using all caps, but honestly, it is appropriate for this product! This eye makeup remover is useless! Doesn't matter if I use it before or after cleaning my face, whether my mascara is waterproof or not, nothing budges with this. Using plain water would have the same effect. I still think nothing works as well as a $2 tub of Vaseline to remove eye makeup, plus it helps prevent fine lines; but, actually, anything would be better compared to this overpriced bottle of uselessness...
I didnt like it. I had to re-moisten cotton ball many times, wipe my eyes with it forever to remove all the make up and still i woke up with black residue under my eyes next day. Plus it made my skin very dry and feeling tight.
This is pretty much my HG as far as eye makeup remover goes. It is very light and very gentle. It feels cooling on my eyes and it never stings or dries them out. I really hate oily feeling eyemakeup remover and this does not leave any residue at all. That being said since it is not an oil based product it will not take of waterproof or stubborn makeup - but I don't expect it to. I love the light scent. I also find that I can gently press a facial cotton square with some of this on it to my eyelid wait a short amount of time and then swipe gently at my eye and my makeup comes right off. I don't need to rub or tug at my eyes. Also for how long it lasts I think the price is pretty good.
Iíve been using this eye makeup remover for years and itís really a wonderful product. Itís water based, which means that there wonít be any greasy residue and itís extremely gentle so that it wonít irritate your eyes and since itís fortified with thermal water, itís also itís non-drying. I think the key to success with this eye makeup remover is two-fold. One Ė you have to understand that an eye makeup remover is not a face cleanser. Itís not supposed to take off your foundation, powder, blush, etc. Itís also not an eye cleanser. You should already be using a cleanser that is eye safe and not irritating. Eye makeup remover is like toner for your eyes; its function is to take off the last remaining bits of eye makeup that your cleanser might have missed. Also, if you are using heavy duty waterproof mascara or eyeliner, then you need to either use an oil based cleanser or an oil based eye makeup remover Ė this isnít going to finish the job. As for the price, itís very reasonable. If you are a fan of Lancomeís Effacil, this is a fraction of the price. Another winner from Vichyís skincare line.
After reading the reviews here for this product I wasnt expecting it to work so well, yet it removed all my mascara no troubles and I used one cotton pad for both eyes! I use clinique mascara high definition and it totally removed it, hasn`t irritated my eyes either and no greasy film. I am very impressed with this product.
I like the beginning of my routine with this make-up remover. It has a nice scent and a water-like consistency, goes on well and does remove all my makeup. However, once I'm halfway through my eyes start to sting and I have to flush them with water for quite a while. That's unacceptable for an eye make-up remover, especially considering many others don't sting me at all (Nivea, Yves Rocher). This is my mom's, I should ask if it stings her and I'll report back. If it doesn't sting you, then you're lucky, it's a great product otherwise.
This didn't work for me at all. My mascaras didn't budge at all. Disappointing after i've read so many raves here.
