I've been using this for a month now and i can't really say i have nay problems with it. I did take 2 lippies off just for a few minor reasons. It doesn't quite take off my mascara that well. I have to wipe it over my eyes a few times before it actually goes and by then it feels a little bit irritated. The pads are sometimes hard to reach and they always stick together. i think i prefer using Almay's Dual Phase in liquid, but this is overall not a bad product. I'm just pretty sure i will soon find something else to replace it.
These are very convenient and take off every last bit of waterproof mascara.
Price: It's cheap, as you can get it at Wal-Mart.
Packaging Quality: very sturdy little cylinder with screw cap, but hard to reach the pads once they get low. It's kind of like trying to pinch down into a narrow-mouthed jar.
I would not buy again because, despite Almay's ubiquitous claims of their products being "hypoallergenic", I was seriously allergic!!
The pads are too small for my taste; they are smaller then the normal "cosmetic rounds" cotton pads. They did a decent job of removing my eye makeup, but I did have to use 2 or 3 per eye, depending on day makeup versus evening makeup.
Won't repurchase, and it's too bad b/c they're easy and cheap.
I wanted to rry these to avoid that oily feeling commonly associated w/ make-up remover. This product held up to that (1 lippie).
These pads were good at removing my eye make-up w/ a light swipe (1 lippie) but it didn't do squat for my mascara -- and at the time I was using a non-WP mascara.
To get that stuff off I had to rub and tug a lot at my eyes and there was something weird about the texture of the pads...there would be this one weird particle (on each pad) that *scratched* my eyelids. Even then, I'd still wake up the next morning with mascara smudged raccoon eyes. Will definitely not be buying again. I never finished with this but I got somewhat near the bottom as I was still trying to find another, better remover. continued >>
cannot believe pppl like these.
i guess they would work if youhave VERy sentitive skin. i really was annoyed and disappointed in these.
I tried the remover pads as an alternative to the Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Gel. I don't think I'll buy them again, because the gel suits me better. The pads are handier, but they are way too soaked with eye makeup remover solution for my taste. If I try to use them like I would a cotton ball, too much fluid comes out, soaking my eye and causing a small amount of discomfort and ickiness. As a result, I wind up using them as I would the gel, patting the pad against my eyes to dispense the remover fluid, letting the remover work, then using a cotton ball to remove the eye makeup.
The BEST! It doesn't sting, no fragrance, it takes everything off and doesn't leave a greasy film on your eyes. I have been using it for years. Lancombe, Clinique and other higher end removers can't even compare. This product is never mentioned in the "best of" issues of beauty magazines and it should be.
this is the best makeup remover for everything but waterproof mascara!! i love these things -- i've used them exclusively for probably 10 years now! they never irritate my eyes and are so quick and effective. you can take off a full eyefull of makeup in one swipe. wonderful product, and cheap, too.
I use this product nearly everyday since i have found it to be better than other eye makeup removers. The pads are very good at removing eyeshadows but sometimes mascara can be a bit difficult to remove. The pads are also a bit dry, which was a feeling I wasn't used to in makeup removers. Nonetheless, I will continue to repurchase this item when i run out since it is convenient and easy to use. Another plus is that it doesn't leave any greasy residue underneath the eyes like a lot of other eye makeup removers.
I used to use Lancome eye makeup remover and I really loved it, but it got too expensive for me. I then tried Almay for $6 or $7 dollars and it works just as well and is soo much cheaper, can be a little oily at first, even though it is supposed to be "non-oily" but either I got used to it or they really are non-oily. UPDATE:Irritated my eyes...back to Lancome
