I think these things are awful. I used to use the non-moisturizing ones when I did not wear waterproof mascara, and I loved those, but these ones are terrible. They are basically an oil slick that are hard to take your makeup off with because they are hard to grip. Then they left a blurry film on my eyes that did not want to come off, even after rinsing with water. I would never purchase these again, and I am definitely going to stick to using Pond's cold cream to take off my eye makeup.

Ugh...I really hate these. It doesn't take off my mascara, it gets into my eyes, drips oil down my face...I really like the oil-free version but these are miserable. I'm throwing the rest out! =/

A cosmetician recommended me these when I ran out of my Lancome eye makeup remover samples (which I've been mostly using for a few years because my mother's friend always gave them to me) and needed a new product. I absolutely have to use an oil-based makeup remover because I wear all waterproof eye makeup (and a LOT of it). The formula itself works well, but I really don't like the pre-moistened pads. They're way too thin and drip all over the place. I end up getting the oil running down my entire face. If you wring them out first, there's not enough product on them to work properly. I like the bottles of eye makeup remover fluid and using my own makeup pads because they're thicker and you don't end up with a big drippy mess. The pre-moistened pads sound convenient but if you have to buy makeup pads for your toner anyways, it doesn't really matter. I also feel like I'm probably paying more for the product because it's ready-to-use. I'm going to finish the jar but I won't be repurchasing. I'm going to try baby oil next. It's dirt-cheap and you would think it would work since it's just straight mineral oil.

I cannot believe all of the bad reviews on here. If I run out of these I am miserable until I get some more. So.. yes, these are oily, but it is not that bad! And they obviously have a less oily version if you hate it that much. I personally like the oil because I think it helps moisturize the delicate skin around my eyes. Plus, if you wash your face afterwards, most of it is gone anyways. It leaves just enough left to nourish your skin. There are a ton of pads in each one, so it lasts me quite awhile, and you can use both sides of the pad. The only down side is that sometimes I have to use a few to get off all of my makeup if I am wearing a lot of it, but like I said there are a lot of them so it is ok. Sometimes I wake up with a little black under my eyes, but it is rare and when I have been wearing a lot of makeup. I have tried other eye makeup removers, and these are definitely the best. You should definitely give them a try.

I used to use the oil-free version of this product, but after the last container I bought barely had any liquid on it I decided to try this one. I knew it was going to be greasy (hence the moisturizing part), I just didn't realize it was going to be an oily greasy rather than a nice creamy soothing texture. You have to fight to keep these pads from slipping out of your fingers and onto your eyeball they're so slick. And they're terrible if you wear contacts; prepare to have foggy vision and irritated eyes. I was at least hoping that since this product is touted as moisturizing it would actually do just that. Nope, greasy but not moisturizing, and yes there is a difference. It does do a great job of removing eye makeup though; I've yet to try it on a waterproof mascara, but it works great on regular mascara and waterproof eyeliner - it comes right off, w/out any scrubbing like you have to do w/ the oil-free version. I just also can't help feeling paranoid that this stuff may clogging the pores on my eyelids preventing any new eyelashes to grow or something. I wash my entire face after I use this product though so hopefully it gets all the leftover residue off. I'm thinking of trying Neutrogena's oil-free pads next....

These pads are super oily and leave a disgusting oily residue on the eyes and fingers. They don't remove mascara that well and to top it off, if any of the oil on those pads goes into the eye, OUCH! I had to go wash my eyes for the tears and irritation to go away. They are way too messy. Yuk, Yuk

I love the convenience of the pads. However, they're not moist enough, kind of dry - something must be deficient with their packaging. Also, did not remove my eye make up 100%. Sometimes it takes 2 pads to get the job done.

i bought this b/c it was $1 at big lots. this eye makeup remover should only be used by people that wear waterproof mascara. i'd imagine that this will work wonders in removing any trace of waterproof mascara, even if it is oily. if you need an eye makeup remover for regular mascara and eye makeup, skip this product entirely. it leaves a filmy residue and i am left with blurry vision for at least 15 minutes since the oil usually gets into my eyes. i like to use eye makeup pads and then a facial remover tissue like ponds, but even that is not enough to remove the oil from my face or eyes. i usually need to really rinse my face hard with facial soap to remove oil. avoid for daily use.

I usually buy the Almay non-oily remover pads, but I decided to try the moisturizing ones to see if they were better. I WAS WRONG! These are a rip-off. They are soaked in baby oil. If I wanted baby oil I would have got some. I was very dissapointed with this product. It took forever to get the slimy residue off my skin. Will not buy again!
