this is an effective eye make up remover. Not only does it take off my eye make up it also takes off my mineral based sunscreen from underneath my eyes. The only problem I see with it is that it has an oily residue.
It's a lovely product, really effective, remove all makeup. But 1 lippie of off for the bit oily effect, and another lippie off for the price. I think you can get a lot of other, just as great makeup-removers for a more fair price.
I dont understand why the rating for this product is soo low?! Ok so its a little greasy afterwards and you have to put some water to wash it away. Not a big deal compared to what it does. I have never owned a better eye make up remover in my life. It doesnt sting and revomes everything soo quickly and easily. I would buy this over and over and over again!!!!
I personally love this stuff. My mom loves the Lancome line, she always gives me her GWP which almost always includes this. It gets the job done with minimal effort at all and I don't feel overly greasy afterwards. I don't mind shaking the bottle, takes a few shakes and you're ready to go. I've never had any eye/skin irritation with this product whereas I have with other products from other lines. I may dish out the money to get the fullsize.
It removes makeup rather nicely and completely, not like some other ones I've tried. However, it is really annoying to shake the bottle, esp. when you're tired and want to sleep--and it's greasy afterwards, and you've to wash it. But all makeup removers have to be rinsed afterwards anyway, so I don't see that as too discouraging.
The jar looks really pretty--reminds me of mercury underneath water in a jar together that I used to see in decorations.
I love this product and have been using it for years. So, I'm actually really surprised the overall rating for it on this site is so low. It completely removes even waterproof mascara without irritation or the need to tug at the vulnerable skin around the eye area. (I tend to wet both my eye area and a cotton pad with water first and then apply a little of the remover to the damp cotton pad, which seems to work better for me than just using the remover on its own.) Sure, it leaves a bit of a greasy residue (although not as much if you follow my routine), but I remove my eye makeup at the end of the day. So, that's really not a problem for me. If you have reservations about purchasing this product, my suggestion is just pick it up the next time Lancome has a "gift with purchase," since it seems like they have one almost on a monthly basis and this remover is typically part of the gift.
this stuff is great. it gets the job done well. i love that i can get this at lancome outlets. they were having their f&f so it was only $13. i don't like how the remoover will come out of the bottle if you shake it to mush without covering the hole.
This removes mascara better than any other product I've used, though admittedly my previous buys were cheapies because I was hoping this would be the one area of my make up/skincare that I didn't spend much on. Shoddy products have made that impossible.
You only need a small amount, it's gentle, non irritating and I love the look of the bottle. It's nice when something as mundane as removing eye make up can be made to feel luxurious!
-For the AU readers I highly recommend buying this online - the price instore is ridiculous.
Ugh. I always get these as GWPs. I don't know why everyone likes them, they make my eyes feel disgustingly greasy afterward. I do like the bottle but it's annoying to remember to shake it to mix up all that oily stuff inside. I guess it may be better for people with dry skin but I prefer other makeup removers that are not so oily.
Excellent for sensitive eyes. Removes eye make-up well without irritating. Love this product. Bit pricey
