About a month ago, I noticed the gentle-looking 4 fl oz/118 ml pink see-though bottles with their white plastic caps. There were only two left on the shelf and they were marked down to half of their original price. Since I only use dual-phase products (the ones you have to shake) for eye makeup removal and the bottles said hypo-allergenic, ophthalmologist tested and 100% fragrance free, I quickly picked both of them up. I was wondering if it was the drugstore or Almay that was changing something. Now I think I know. Almay’s Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover does remove eye makeup well, at least what I wear – occasional eyeshadow, long-lasting eyeliner, and regular and/or waterproof mascara. The disadvantages are: I have to completely fill a cotton pad with it to take my makeup off without tugging at the delicate skin around my eyes and when I dab the saturated cotton pad on my tightly closed lids, some of the remover still manages to slip in and sting my eyes. Eye unfriendly! Then there is the ribbed child resistant press-turn cap. What's up with that? Should I be afraid of the contents? And me who asks the pharmacist for baby-boomer friendly caps on all of my prescriptions! Hand unfriendly! To boot, the bottle opening is so wide that if I accidentally knock it over before I’m done, most of the contents will spill out in an instant. Human unfriendly!
