These eyepads are really bad against waterproof mascara, I had to rub too much to get it to work. In addition, this actually made my eyes really irritated, very itchy! I like the moisturizing pads much better, even though they are a bit too oily.
Non-oily, effective, cheap. What more is there to say?
i bought this because of the pretty good reviews and the idea seemed good. convenient and good for travelling. one word: SUCKS! the pads are small, and it didn't even take off all my eye makeup. especially mascara, my mascara didn't budge. it didn't take anything off, it just smeared/smudged my eyeshadow everywhere around my eyes. i had to use my pond's eye makeup remover to remove everything after. good idea but very dissapointed. what a waste of $7 CAD!
I didn't find these to be non oily at all despite the name. They irritated and left a film on my skin and it took at least 3 to remove all my makeup!!! They also made my eyes very itchy and red. Would not repurchase.
I'm on my second bottle of these pads and I think they work great. The only other eye makeup remover I have tried is the lotion stuff from Avon which always got in my eyes and I couldn't see a thing! These are SO much better than that. It is sometimes hard to remove every last bit of mascara but it gets about 95% of everything off. I'll keep repurchasing.
Generally speaking I like this product. I have always prefered the my eye makeup remover on prepackaged pads for the sheer simplicity of it, I find them slimmer and easier to work with around my eye area. Anyway, I have oily skin, but its pretty sensative around my eyes, and this doens't seem to bother me at all. Sometimes my eye area felt a little overly tender, but I think some of my Salicylic Acidclenser got a bit to closer which just aggrivated it a bit (giving almay the benifit of the doubt, it never bothered me until I switched to this new clenser with SA). It does a pretty good job removing my makeup up, ormally in just a swipe and then a bit of rubbing for the eyeliner. I haven't had any problems with removing my waterproof mascara, but then I have been sing an Almay one rescently...so maybe their products work well with eachother. Normally I can use one pad for both eyes, one for each eye if I happen to have a lot of eyeliner on. The container is small and works pretty well (easy for travel), but the screw top seems to hold in the moisture pretty wekk since I'm almost at the end and they haven't drived up yet. My only complaint is that they are a bit hard to get out now that I'm getting down to the bottom, but I never had any issues in the begining.
I've tried numerous eye makeup removers and this is my absolute favorite. The pads are very easy and convient! I don't have to worry about washing wash cloths, or using a harsh paper towel. It removes my eye shadow and mascera just fine and I don't find feel it drys out my eye lids. Two thumbs up for this product!
This is a great product, it gets most mascara off without leaving a greasy film that blurs your vision like the moisturizing kind. The pre-soaked pads are great and convenient, but sometimes get stuck together and you end up wasting 2 without realizing it. Unfortuantely I recently switched waterproof mascaras and this just will not remove all of the product. Great mascaras are harder to find than eyemakeup removers, so I switched to cold cream.
I swore by these for many years, while my skin was oily. After switching birth control pills, however, my skin has dried up quite a bit, and I noticed that this product was making my sensitive undereye skin sting and burn. While I like the idea of using pre-soaked pads rather than cotton balls with liquid eye makeup remover, I need something gentler, and can no longer use these. Too bad, because they are cheap and always did a fabulous job of removing all eye makeup! Good for oily-skinned girls, not so great for normal/dry-skinned girls.
I like the idea of using single pads, instead of using the typical eye makeup remover with a cotton pad. I guess I just like how everything comes all ready in this handy little container! I really like these Almay eye makeup remover pads, because (1) they do NOT ever irritate my sensitive eyes; (2) they are not greasy, and do not make my eye area break out or anything; and (3) you get 80 for about five dollars (less if you wait for a sale at CVS), so they are a good buy, provided you dont use three or four each time you wear makeup! I normally find one pad enough for both eyes. Perhaps two pads if I wear lots of eyeliner.
