I picked this up for $5.99 CAD I think, you get a good amount, 150 ml. It's a silicone/water based product, dual phase which you shake to activate.

It takes everything off, MAC Fluidline, Kiss Me mascara and long wear lipstick comes off like a breeze. It burns my skin in the process though, makes it hot and red. Not just irritated, but hot like the silicone is heating up on your skin. It's very hard to describe. So, I don't use it on my face, ever.

I use it to clean my foundation/concealer brushes and my flocked sponge, it takes my 16 hour silicone based foundation and concealer off my tools really well. I don't know if I would repurchase it for this purpose though, soap and water can cleanse my tools well enough.

I gave the packaging a rating of 1, the bottle is fine but it needs shaking and the wimpy card board seal in the lid does nothing to keep it in the bottle and it oozes out all over everything like oil. I had to put it in a squeeze bottle, the packaging it came in is completely useless.
