I love this product. It does the one thing I need it to do, and that is remove my heavy eye makeup. Yes, it's oily-- that's why it so effectively breaks down my mascara. It takes eye liner and eyeshadow off in a breeze and also does a good job of removing mascara. I wear a lot of mascara and this is the most gentle of other brands of remover I've tried (Almay, Clinique, Neutragena) and the most effective. I still have to work to get it off but this is the best I've had thus far. I don't mind that you have to shake for it to emulsify (I mean that's really not an inconvenience..to me) and a bottle does last me a long time. I've probably had one since November (6 months almost) so the price isn't that large of a drawback to me bc it's effective. For reference, I use either Smashbox or MAC Prep&Prime eyelash primer, CG LB to seperate lashes and finish with MAC zl in zoom black so this is some heavy duty stuff that doesn't irritate my eyes in the least bit. continued >>
This product stings your eye especially when you have to clean the fluidline. The cap is difficult to open and you shouldn't forget to shake it well first. I will not purchase this product again.
This is a really good eye makeup remover. I tend to have trouble getting my mascara off, even though I don't use waterproof. I asked the SA at MAC for something that would take it off but still be gentle, and she recommended Gently Off. You do have to shake to combine the two parts of the remover, but it leaves at most a light oily feeling on your eye area. It's really effective- if I'm wearing a lot of makeup I'll press the cotton to my eye for a couple seconds, and then the makeup will come right off. It's even taken off false eyelash glue! The downsides are that it's a little expensive for the size of the bottle- I feel like it's comparable to Clinique Take the Day Off, but the bottle is bigger for the Clinique, for the same price. Also, the bottle has one of those cap things that keeps the remover from gushing out, but the bottle is also rigid so you can't squeeze it. That means you only get a little at a time, so you have to tap it against the cotton to get more out. On the plus side, the cap is very secure and won't leak. Since it's so effective, I will probably buy this again.
I bought this product because I had some problems taking my fluidline off and the MUA at the MAC counter recommended this make up remover to me. I have almost used an entire bottle of this stuff, but I had to stop using it, because it started to burn on my eyelids like crazy. However, this is not the only reason why I would not repurchase this. This product did not remove my fluidline any better than cheap make up removers do and while using this I have found absolutely nothing to justify its high price.I do like the packaging though, the cap really prevents spillage, so that's a plus. This product also leaves an oily film on the skin after using it, but that was not a big problem for me, as I always use a cleanser after removing my eye make up anyway.
Would not repurchase.
Yes this product is oily. Yes this product is expensive. Yes it is a hassle to unscrew the cap and yes it is messy. However, it does remove my makeup without any trouble and i guess that is the main thing. I dont feel the need to scrub and the oiliness soon fades or i just go straight into my skincare routine. I will be repurchasing for sure because i go through this like toilet paper!
This makeup remover is awesome. It removes makeup easily, I need little of it and I don't need to add pressure. I use a wet cotton pad to remove the oily residue if I don't wash my face right after removing my makeup. It smells nice too.
I was told that this would remove my waterproof make up but when it comes to liquid eye liner all it seems to do is smudge it all over my eye to the point that I look like a raccoon! Alse feels really greasy afterwards. Would never buy again!
Almay's Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover works better than this. After using this, a lot of make up is left and has to be removed through the regular cleansing process.
I was hoping that this would be a better remover since it contains oil but isn't too oily. Almay's Moisturizing Eye Make Up Remover is way too oily for me. I guess I have to keep looking!
This hardly took off my eye make up let alone gently. I have to really work at it and it is much too oily. Also after using it I notice the next day there are white bumps around my eye the hurt. I will not buy this again. I like the clean and clear wipes they do a great job!
i rarely use liquid eyeliner and mascara but whenever i do im really thankful that i have this remover since it works so well i don't have to spend a long time removing eyemakeup plus i don't have to tug at my eye area. i love the packaging but im always careful not to spill it. bec it works so well you don't need a lot of product and the bottle will last a long time i just took one lippie bec its kind of pricey but i will definitely repurchase
