Nice packaging with Child Safety Lock (great for travel)
Pink color is pretty
Did not remove makeup (non-waterproof) as well as some drugstore removers
Irritated eye area/Stung during use
Expensive (around $18.00 usd)
I would pass on this one and go to your local drugstore or target. I have a somewhat sensitive eye area but this made my skin sting and took longer to remove my makeup than anything else I have used... not worth the money.
I did not buy this product but I did use it in the store. I got some in my eye and it felt like acid!! It also burned the skin around my eye. Maybe I am over sensitive, but I suggest trying this product before purchasing it.
A great makeup remover overall! Oil-based makeup removers work best most of the time,and this product was much better than MAC's Pro eye makeup remover! I didnt need to scrub my waterline to remove the eyeliner like i had to with most of the other makeup removers i've tried. The only thing i dont like is that it burns. Maybe i just have sensitive skin,but i'll probably be looking for something else which wont burn my eyes. Otherwise,it works great.
I use MAC's liquidlast eyeliner, and this stuff gets it off easily. I just dip a cotton swab, and that's enough to remove my eye makeup. It's pretty pricey, but it works great. Since I don't use a lot of this, it's lasted me awhile so I guess it's worth it. I'll probably repurchase if I can't find a cheaper alternative that works as well.
Big fan of MAC, but this wasn't a good product for me. Did a great job of removing my make-up, but stung and irritated the skin surrounding my eyes. My eyes were red and slightly puffy after just one use. Took it straight back to the store!
CONS: it works sooo well.
PROS: i feel little bit of burning on my eyes, it is too strong to my skin
Of all the makeup removers I have tried, the MAC Gently Off is my favorite, and the one I always come back to. I have used it for 6 years continuously, and find that while the product is expensive, even with everyday use the bottle lasts a few good months. The bottle itself is pretty irritating since they re-vamped the opening, but this creates an opportunity to waste less product, which is nice in the long run. It does a wonderful job of removing even the most waterproof of mascaras and doesn't irritate my skin in any way. One of the only things from MAC that I have purchased everytime it runs out.
While this product is on the expensive side and the packaging sux, this is the only remover that removes my MAC waterproof eyeliner with ease. I usually transfer the liquid to a pump bottle from Sephora to avoid the hassle of unscrewing the cap everytime I need to use it (which is every night).
Originally bought this to use as a lip makeup remover, which it does decently well. I just soak a cottonball with it and gently swipe over my lips a few times. It doesn't take it all off in one swipe, which I don't really have a problem with. Better than my previous method of vigorously rubbing at my lips with water, then trying to take off the excess with a dry tissue. Depending on how much I had on, this was a very time-consuming and almost inefficient process, since I could never take it all off. With this, I just do a couple of swipes, then rinse with water.
As an eye makeup remover, it also works pretty well, however, it burned my eyes slightly, so I won't be using this for that purpose.
I will continue buying this unless I find something better. I don't know much about lip makeup removal yet, and there doesn't seem to be a lot on it. Also, I see that Clinique has a similar product, and is $0.50 cheaper ($17.50 USD as opposed to $18 USD)! ;D Overall, a good product unless I find a better and cheaper alternative to removing lip makeup
