Guess I'm one of the fortunate ones that thinks this product is AWESOME! I have oily/combo skin, wear contacts, and typically use 2 or 3 different types of mascara on a daily basis, but concealer for my dark circles. This doesn't sting, or clog pores or create milia (I'm NEVER using oil based makeup remover again, I had milia for almost 2 years before I had them removed- since using this, I'm milia free!)
This gets rid of EVERYTHING! Sometimes when I take a mid afternoon shower to get ready to go out, I'll have to use this after the shower because my facial cleanser doesn't even get all that mascara.
That said, I've found the drugstore "Compares to..." to work just as well and costs a bit less. Currently I have the Target version, but I've used Walgreens happily in the past.
It's cheap enough that it's worth a try. Maybe because my many mascara is drugstore friendly, this drugstore friendly makeup remover is too? lol.
This remover is amazing...it has a faint lovely rose water scent, takes off all my eye makeup only in three light swipes and is truly refreshing.
I wear contact lenses and this cleanser actually soothes my eyes! I find it strange most people here didn't like it. Maybe it behaves differently on different skins or something...
I also wish I had read the reviews of this product before buying. It is truly awful. I had to scrub my eyelids to get any eyeliner and mascara off, and even then it didn't work. My eyelids felt dry and raw after I use this product. I was also trying to find a cheap alternative to Clinique but I'm going back to Clinique and this stuff is going in the trash.
packaging looked nice, product did not remove makeup at all
Worst eye makeup remover I've ever used. I got it from Santa in my stocking and have been too cheap to replace it, but it is terrible!
It doesn't get ANY mascara off, and it does sting. It takes me so long and so much work to get off what I think is everything, and then I still have makeup under my eyes when I wake up in the morning. :( The packaging is cute but if you're looking for a DS eye makeup remover I'd go with Neutrogena or even Almay.
I tried this a long time ago thinking it would be a cheaper alternative to Lancome's, but it DOES sting. Terribly! It's awful.
If you are looking to save pennies in this trying economy then I suggest you try Neutrogena's eye make up remover. I'm not a fan of most of their products, but this one is terrific and cheap!
I used to use Decleor's but it's very expensive, also Merle Norman's works well at a moderate price.
For me, this is the worst eye makeup remover. It stings the skin around my eyes, and does not remove my eye makeup with ease. I have never had an eye makeup remover that has stung me before. THIS STINGS!!!
YUK!!!!! if your use to bi-facial...this is a waste of your time!!!
Why are they still making this product? I don't understand, maybe the company is unaware of the reviews of their products. This stuff does NOTHING to remove eye makeup. It's water and chemicals. Seriously, save yourself the hassle of going back to the store to return this product and don't even lift it off the shelf! Completely useless!
i really wish i'd read the reviews first. this is the worst makeup remover i've ever tried. it removes nothing..NOTHING without tugging and lots of product and even then it's a struggle. it also stings. um, why does an EYE makeup remover STING the eyes? seriously, l'oreal! save your money.
