Gross. Burnt my eyes, took forever to actually remove just a little bit of eyeliner and mascara. Costs way too much, smells so chemical-y. I have nothing good to say about this stuff.

I usually just get a q tip one side thats wet and the other side that's dry and take it off and dry but when i can never take it off with just that i use this. It's a life saver. get a q tip and put some of this on and boom its off.
But sometimes it's hard to get it out of the container. My friend gave it to me so idk how much it was.

This is one of the best eye makeup remover I've ever used!
To me I dont know whether it does contain certain oils or not, but this feels like OIL FREE! Not like Neutrogena, claiming to be oil free and the bottle contains half liquid and half oil that you have to shake together!
Extremely effective at remving my eye makeup and all my other makeup. Doesn't sting or dry out my eyes. I also love the scent.
Definitely would always repurchase!

Thankfully I got this in a gwp and didn't actually spend money on this. First off, if I even get it near my eyes, it stings like crazy. What...I thought it was eye makeup remover...meaning it shouldn't make my eyes burn for twenty minutes after using it. I gave it two lippies instead of one because it smells nice. I guess I'm used to the lotion removers my mom buys from Walmart (meaning they're a lot less expensive than this crap) that you can put it on, wipe your makeup off, and be good to go. With this stuff, you have to rinse it off afterwards. You can find much better than this at the drugstore, even. Do not waste your money.

This product is aptly named - after using it I want to say "TAKE IT AWAY!" because it sucks. Doesn't remove eye makeup completely and it feels greasy. As I'm rinsing my face I can still feel a film of grease on my skin that won't come off. I only used this because it was the only remover available while I was on vacation, and I definitely won't be buying it any time soon.

very, very poor makeup remover. it didn't take ANY of my eye makeup off, it irritated my eyes, and the packaging was not up to my standards. suggestion - l'oreal gentle eye makeup remover. Or even extra virgin olive oil!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
It removed my foundation and concealer easily but could not seem to remove my eyeliner and mascara very well. I had to reapply a few times which stung my eyes.
After my bathe, I noticed black residue under my eye. I applied more makeup remover and thought that I've finally managed to remove everything. However, the next morning, I noticed more residue under my eye.
Conclusion: It doesn't quite work for stubborn eye makeup.

Only tried this as an eye makeup remover (which is what Estee Lauder says it is), and here is my experience.
My asian mother says it best.
"WHY ARE MY EYES SO SPICY?!?!"
...It smells amazing, but medical professionals would be concerned at the state of my eyes after attmpting to use this product to remove eyeliner and mascara. I've never had a problem with eye makeup removers before, and this one was massively irritating and burning.
Perhaps I'll try again to use it to take off facial makeup, and I'm hoping that experience will be better. However, if you're looking for a good eye makeup remover, keep looking. If you've already bought it and can't return, it's not bad to use to clean makeup brushes and smells great, so it's not a total loss. :)

HG makeup remover, i was playing with a sample of the god awful doublewear that i just had to try to kill my curiosity and put it all over my face and then used this and it was gone just like that, did the same thing with my revlon colorstay and a few other foundations i had and my waterproof hypnose mascara by lancome and they were all gone from my face like that! I just put some on a tissue and wiped my face with it about 3 times and it removed everything. Love the smell, very refreshing, no oily residue afterwards and non irritating for atleast my face. Excellent bc there's nothing worse than having leftover makeup the day after and developing huge craters bc u thought u had removed all makeup. This one beats purity by philosophy bc i don't need any additional removers although i do use my face wash after. A staple product for sure.

I don't care for Estee Lauder's liquid remover because it irritates my eyes, and I wasn't in the mood for Lancome (which is also very good), and I was intrigued by this cream when I saw it on the sales counter. I'm so glad I purchased it. I love that it's a pump and a cream, because it's easy to control and doesn't get in my eyes. I just use a little bit and swipe. Sometimes I have to apply it twice, but I wear waterproof liner and mascara. It's so smooth and I never have to rub very hard. Just one or two gentle swipes is all it takes. Obviously some people find this cream irritates their eyes, which I think just represents that everyone is different and what doesn't bother one person might really irritate someone else. I definitely recommend it based on my experience, but don't be upset if it irritates your eyes and you have to return it. ($22.00 USD for 6.75 ounces.)

I love this makeup remover! From the pump to the great smell that it leaves behind. With one pump on a cotton pad for each eye, it takes everything away without leaving residue behind like other makeup removers I have tried. The scent it leaves behind is crisp and fresh. I don't have to tug hard on my eyes to get rid of my makeup. Getting rid of the makeup on face was very simple. With a cotton pad again, about two pumps cleaned my face very well.
I would definitely purchase this again! There was a decent amount for the price I paid. (I got mine at a CCO) :]

The full name of this product is Take It Away Total Makeup Remover. It's a thin lotion that spreads easily over the face and rinses off. It was effective in removing my facial makeup. (I used Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover on a cotton pad to remove my eye makeup.)
I liked the ease of application, but the problem was that it dried out and irritated my very dry and sensitive skin. I used it last night, and today my skin itches.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
It has a nice cucumber-fresh scent that when you apply it, it makes you feel clean, but unfortunately it irritated my skin so bad, especially the skin around my eyes, and somehow it got into one of my eyes, and that stuff can burn!!! At least I got my $22 back. It works as good as Biore's cleansing towels, which are a lot cheaper (but those irritate my skin as well). The search continues.

I searched high and low to find something to take off Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara. I went to different makeup counters, and tried out some samples. Well I ended up liking the results of this product, because it wasnt oily.
PROS: It does take off my makeup in a clean sweep, great smell, and easy removal of product *I like pump bottles*
CONS: I feel if after two swipes on my eyelids, they tend to get a little irratated, if I get it into my eye it stings *of course I understand that this product has chemicals, which naturally is going to sting in my eye*, the product is really slippery, lol.
I dont think I will buy another bottle of this, I might just go with good ol' baby oil, I know its oil, but its easier on my eyelids.

I've been using this product for years. I wear waterproof mascara and liner and sometimes long wearing lipstick, and this is the only remover I've ever used that takes it all off without being irritating. I also like that it's creamy and not an oil-based product like so many others. My method is to squirt it onto a tissue and gently rub on my eyes and then I rinse with water after. I mainly only use it on my eyes, so it lasts a long time. I'm not crazy about pump bottles in general, so this didn't get a 5 from me on packaging. I hate when it gets to the bottom and won't pump any more and I have to store the bottle upside down (not easy) and then take out the pumper and dig for the product in the bottle.
I will always use this. I buy 2 at a time.

This is definitely an HG makeup remover in my book! I have sensitive skin and lots of cosmetic allergies, and this is one product that has done what it's supposed to (remove makeup) without irritating my skin in any way. I have a hard time removing cream eyeshadows (ie. MAC Paint Pots) and foundation (MAC Studio Fix Fluid) from my fingers after application (yes, I use my fingers)... and this Take It Away by EL works like nothing else! This even removes waterproof eyeliner in a snap! I just squirt a small amount onto whatever it is that needs to be removed from my skin... rub it in gently... and voilą! Makeup gone! I also use this on my face at night to remove my makeup before I wash with facial cleanser. I squirt a little Take It Away on my fingers... rub it in a circular motion on my face, then on my eyelids... rinse... then wash again with facial cleanser just to make sure everything is gone. I will never be without this product, unless EL decides to stop making it...

Well, what can I say about this product? It certainly does what it says - it removes everything in a few swipes which is fantastic, but I found it really, really harsh and I mean red eyelids, stinging eyes kind of harsh. The pain and the shock of it all took my breath away when I first used it - I may as well have used nail polish remover. Not one to give up lightly, I tried again, this time using much less on the cotton wool pad - this seemed to be a lot better and I am determined to finish the bottle. But no, I will not be buying this again - any product that hurts is a big no no. I would probably only recommend this for someone who wears very heavy eye makeup and has been forewarned.

This product is amazing , I have had my bottle for some time now , I even used it to clean my foundation brush , before I found mac brush cleanser. It has a very refreshing scent to it , and leaves a very clean feeling.

Ok this product was very confusing for me.
I originally used my friend's and it worked very well (but still will not remove everything..I end up with residue the next morning). I brought my own while on a cruise ship ($20), and it -BURNED- my eyelids. I pump some on a cotton pad and wipe it over my eye area to get rid my make up. When I rinse the residue off, it will sting my eyes. I don't remember having this problem when I used my friend's bottle. Could I have become sensitized to an ingredient in it, or it was just a bad batch of product? I do not have sensitive skin.
