This makeup remover is pretty great. It is decently priced and manages to take off my eye makeup without much force vs some of the drugstore eye makeup removers I have tried. :) It did not sting my eyes and I felt it was very gentle. Although they claim that it won't leave your lids greasy I felt it did leave my lids a little oily which is fine since I clean my face afterwards. Very great product. Would recommend it!
This product burned my eyes. I really wanted to love this and was praying it would work for me because it was inexpensive compared to the other major name brands at Sephora however it does not do a very good job of removing my mascara which is not even waterproof. I literally have to keep rubbing my lashes til they start falling out to get the mascara off. This is a return item for me. Thank goodness Sephora has a no hassle return policy.
completely removes my eye makeup! i really love this, and there's no oiliness, its almost like water (for me).
Removers i've used in the past leave mascara residue that shows up even though it looks as if makeup is completely removed.
I didn't like the oily feeling after cleansing. The next morning I woke up, the residues of the mascara and eyeliner were under my eyes although I thought I cleaned them properly.
By looking at the reviews, eye makeup removers are clearly sensitive to each person. This one is not a favorite of mine. I still use it, because it's the only one I have at the moment. It does remove any eye makeup I may have, waterproof or otherwise, but I find it irritating to my eyes. Keep in mind, I suffer from bad allergies and have extremely sensitive eyes anyways, so I should probably go to a company like Avene, but this caught my attention for the price tag. I should mention that I do like the packaging. There is a small opening from which product comes out and it's very easy to apply to a cotton swab/Q-tip if you need precise application, without dipping into the bottle or wasting product.
I personally wouldn't buy it again, but I am sure it would work for those without such problematic eyes.
I love this product. I'm surprised at the bad reviews.
I dont find it oily at all and it removes all my make up easily. No stinging or anything.
Pity there are no sephoras in the UK so i'm going to make mine last.
The burns my lids. Boo, sephora, boo! Also it won't remove loreal HIP gel liner... Further attempts to remove with this product made the burn alarmingly worse. I will return this.
I just recently bought this product....not sure if it has changed since all the bad reviews.....but I REALLY like it. It is not oily at all...does not burn my eyes and takes everything off very easily. It has a squirt top so I think that has changed from what I read in past reviews here. I am not overly fond of Neutrogena or the Avon removers....so this is now my HG eye makeup remover!!!
Not sure why this is getting so many bad reviews, I think it's one of the better eye make up removers I've used, for this price. I find that it is gentle on my eyes and not greasy, which I like. I wear non-waterproof DIorshow mascara, and occasionally eyeshadow or creme eyeliner. This works like a charm on the liner and shadow. For the mascara, I let the cotton pad sit on my eye for a couple seconds before wiping and it works fine. I did notice that they changed the formula of this sometime this year- maybe around Jan. '09. The old formula had an oily part and a non-oily part and you had to shake it. That one was super greasy. The new formula works just as well as the old formula but isn't greasy. The price is good, I think it's around $8 per bottle and one bottle lasts me several months with semi-regular use.
This is a mediocre eye makeup remover, but is the one I'm currently using. I have to go back and swipe over my eyelids quite a few times to remove my makeup and still in the morning when I was my face again, there is more eye makeup.
I plan on not buying this again after I use it up.
