This product is EXTREMELY drying! I can actually feel it stripping the moisture from my skin. If you have dry skin, avoid this product at all costs.

So far, so great. I have been on the hunt for a gentle all over face makeup remover and this seems to fit the bill alright. The name "all-in-one" is quite fitting since it does just that. This does not leave my skin feeling really tight and dry, which I appreciate a lot. It is also fragrance free which is a huge plus in my books. When I use it, I usually use another product to wash off my face immediately after (LRP Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser) to pick up any leftover makeup instead of a toner (bad luck toners in general for me). I discovered this product on Beautypedia where it's said to be good for sensitive skins like mine. I don't find the MUA reviews and stats do it justice. Finally, I haven't had it go directly in my eye; I do wash off my eye makeup with this (which includes opening my eyes at some point to get the mascara and pencil eyeliner under my lower lashline and it hasn't stung me at all. I will, however, update my review if it does stings my eyes in the future.
If I had to say something bad its that the bottle isn't really huge so this could get expensive after a while depending on how much you use.

I originally bought this as a makeup remover for my face to use before Neutrogena's Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, but the Deep Clean Cream Cleanser was too drying for my sensitive skin and I replaced my routine simply with Cetaphil.
This, however, came in handy for removing my eye makeup. I think it does a great job removing eye makeup and I did not experience any of the stinging or irritation that other reviewers seem to have had. I apply by squirting a little bit (probably a quarter of a pump, which is another concern - the pump dispenses a lot of the product) onto a cotton pad and rub it in a little with my finger. Then I let the cotton pad sit on my eyelid for a couple seconds before gently sliding my makeup off. It's a bit more effort than my usual liquid eye makeup remover but it does the exact same thing in the end!
I will keep using this until the bottle is empty but I most likely will not be purchasing again, and will return to my usual eye makeup remover.

This makeup remover has a very nice consistency and leaves no oily residue on skin. After cleansing the skin will feel dewy and quite soft. The only drawback would be is the sting factor, even when you have your eyes closed. But it's not a burning sensation so I try and avoid the eye area as much as possible. Also, if you use the cleanser twice, one after another, then your skin will feel a slight burning sensation which subsides shortly thereafter, the same for eyes as well. This is the reason why I have removed one lippie and have given it 4/5 rating. Otherwise it removes all traces of sunscreen and makeup, which for me, includes the following: L'Oreal Ombrelle Sunscreen SPF 60, Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry Skin Foundation, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, Revlon Creme Blush, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.
With any makeup remover lotion/cream I always use it twice regardless of whether it has removed makeup the first time or not. The reason being, I want to be absolutely sure that all traces of makeup and sunscreen have been removed. I then follow with a cleanser to cleanse the skin as a final assurance to be 120% sure every makeup/product is gone. With this product, you don't really need the skin cleanse. After all, the product claims to be "all in one" and it does live up to its claim of being an all makeup and skin cleanser. However, being a neat freak I end up doing my final skin cleanse anyway (ie: 2 cleanses with a makeup remover, then a third cleanse for the skin with a different skin cleanser) even though my skin does feel nicely cleansed using the Neutrogena product.
As for the rest of its claims, the product lives up to all of its claims, which includes:
- being gentle for sensitive skin, suitable for all skin types
- removes all makeup without excessive rubbing
- leaves skin soft, smooth and free of pore-clogging residue
But, as I have mentioned before, it will sting your eyes and I don't see how that makes this product an "all in one cleanser" when obviously it stings the eyes and the instruction does say to use it with eyes closed... I wonder how people are supposed to get liner out of waterline for example? I have bought and reviewed the "Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion" by Neutrogena and this does not sting the eyes at all. So I guess you have to use a separate makeup remover just for the eyes if you are going to use this "All In One" cleanser, which of course defeats the purpose of it being "all in one."
Also, the instruction says that you can remove the product with tissue or cotton pad, or rinse with water. I would definitely recommend rinsing with water, particularly for those with combination to oily skin, because the product does leave the skin rather dewy. After all, they do contain emollients, so leaving it on for such skin types may end up causing breakouts. I would also recommend rinsing with water as well for those with dry skin. Although the product does not leave the skin feeling tacky or sticky, I think this product sort of "requires" that you rinse with water to get that nice, freshly cleansed, soft skin.
200ml, pump style, no scent at all, white creamy/lotion consistency, very easy to use and massage into skin, rinses easily with water. Regular price is about $10.99 CDN plus tax. Got mine for just under $9 CDN plus tax. A definite repurchase for me as it doesn't drip like Neutrogena's Oil Free Makeup Remover which is a liquid, and it removes all of my makeup in a very easy step.

Despite all the bad reviews, I really like this makeup remover. I think they must have changed the formula or something, cause my face feels great while, and after I use this. Mind you, I am 99% acne free, so that could be a reason why. This removes makeup better than my old Vichy Purete Thermale makeup remover which was $17 CAD. It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes, nor my skin. It makes my skin super soft, which can get dry from time to time. It's the best remover I've ever used, removes my Voluminous Million WP with no problem, and also my powder or foundation on my face. I don't use it as a cleanser, I wash it off with my cleanser, but it still works great. I'm a little scared about the ingredient list, but after two days it hasn't broken me out, so I'm crossing my fingers. Overall, this works great, but I wouldn't recommend it for people with lots of acne, or if you have really sensitive skin.

This product removes most of my makeup (minus eye liner that is too close to the lashes). I use MAC Prolongwear and it takes it all off. What it doesn't take off very well is Revlon Colorstay, so beware!
I use disposable wiping clothes to take this off and it works well. I don't follow up with a cleanser since the wiping cloths I use are meant for cleansing the face. I just rinse with water after it's all done instead and I feel no residue left over :)
So it's great that this product takes off most makeup but I wouldn't recommend to use it daily for sensitive/dry skin people. Since I only wear makeup once or twice a week my skin is alright, but I know that if I use it every day it would dry out my skin. --Oh and seriously do not get this stuff close to our eyes! Sting-o-rama! This is why I don't try to take eyeliner out. I don't want to get THAT close to my eyeballs.
I had no real issues with the packaging other than it not being so pretty. Some people have issues with the pump but luckily I'm fine. It pumps out great unless I press it down too fast.
I would be on the fence to buy this stuff again though since I do have other products I want to try. If they don't end up working out, I would definitely go back to this since it works for me.

Uhhh, not a winner. I could only use this on my eyes. I had tried it on my entire face and it gave me tiny little bumps all over. It's very heavy and I eventually grew to dislike using it on my eyes even, as it would leave a gunky film, even though I kept my eyes closed while using this. Won't repurchase this one.

This removes makeup okay. It also doesn't give me acne. However, it stings, not when it gets into my eyes, but across my whole face! Absolutely ridiculous!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
perhaps this is not good for sensitive skin types... however regardless of your skin type I DO NOT recommend this .... it has nothing good about it except the pump was pretty convenient.
this product irritated my skin and the next morning my face was covered with tiny tiny bumps ALL OVER.. (the size of sand) it felt like buffer... I stopped using it.. but my face is still upset.. I'm planning on to bringing it back to the store and see if I can return it.. even if it was only like $13CAD I don't want to trash the money.

So this stuff didn't completely remove my makeup (I would use a cotton pad with toner and there would still be some on it - ew) which forced me to cleanse once more with another cleanser. This also clogged my pores like no tomorrow, I got pimple and tiny bumps all over my face that disappeared once I stopped using it.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS STUFF!

I used to use a Nivea eye makeup remover lotion which felt soft against my skin so I thought, hey why not try this one? Please love the other version too. This was a huge disappointment.
First off, the pump did not work well, it squirted out too much product with one little pump, sometimes I didn't even press hard and the lotion would squirt onto me, it was so annoying and I bought the pump one specifically so i didn't have to pour it out. Well boy was I wrong.
Second of all, this lotion didn't remove my mascara very well and it make my eyelids RED, i felt like i hadn't slept for 48 hours or something, my eyes became puffy and my skin was irritated. I tried to remove my make-up with this and my skin broke out, it was red, itchy and it hurt alot. No I'm not allergic to it, I am only allergic to pollen and thats its.
This was a terrible quality product and I will throw out the rest of the bottle because it irritated my eyes so much that my eyelids were dry and burned a little. My eyelids were DRY, they are incredibly oily and eyeshadow can hardly survive without some concealer there as a primer. It was incredibly disappointing, save your money for something better.

This is my first review on a product, I bought this make-up remover 3 days ago. I find it alright, it removes makeup but not so well, I had to use it 3 times on my eyes to completely remove my liquid liner.. which was just a little line. However, it removed my eye shadow directly.
It claims that its perfect for sensitive skin and its oil-free but when I read the ingredients and looked them up I found out that it is not suitable for sensitive skin because it contains Isopropyl Palmitate which can cause acne.
If you have a sensitive skin you should check this website http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm
it lists all the ingredients that may cause acne. I have been following the list for the past 2 weeks and my face has improved alot ! I got rid of the products that claim to be good for sensitive skin but actually are not! - I know this has nothing to do with this product but I want to share it with other people to help them =D !
right now I stopped using neutrogena on my face, so I just use it to remove my eye make up.. I dont want my skin to break out.

I decided to try this product because I wanted something simple that could remove my makeup quickly. I was trying to avoid the two step process of using an eye makeup removing solution and then a face cleanser. I wanted something that could do both without the drying effects of most "deep cleaning" cleansers.
It removes makeup quite well and does not dry out my skin. However, it leaves behind this horrible film and my face just never feels clean after using it.
Do not get this product in your eyes!!! Somehow, this product always, always get's in to my eyes, no matter how tightly I shut them. And once the product is in my eyes it covers them with the same horrible film/residue! It doesn't sting or anything but until I thoroughly flush them out with water, my vision is all blurry because of the film left on my eyes!
I've tried using a tissue to remove the lotion instead of rinsing (which I guess is how it get's into my eyes) but it just isn't as effective as a makeup remover using this method. This product is a huge letdown :(

It really removes my make-up, but I have to use it twice for my mascara. It is not greasy for my combination skin. I already used half of it, but won’t buy it again, because it doesn’t work for my eye make-up very well.

I have sensitive + acne prone skin. This lotion leaves white flakes on my skin. It's either drying my skin or leaving white residue, Maybe i should resort to rinsing the lotion off with water instead of using a tissue to wipe it off.
One good thing is that it has helped get rid of my acne. Now I don't get breakouts. However, it could be another product in my skincare that's making me acneless.

Stings my eyes like crazy. I hate it for that. Yes it's non greasy and has no smell or anything. I use a cotton pad to wipe it around my eyes, and follow with Philosophy's Purity cleanser. I will look for some other eye makeup remover that doesn't sting. P.S. I second the annoying pump - I put a cotton pad under it to get it all though, and rub it together to distribute the lotion. Meh, the burning is the worst part of it for me.

I leave this at home and use my Kose Cleansing Oil at school. I find that the cleansing oil emulsifies my makeup easily and quicker and thus washes it off faster and better. However, this is comparable and does a sufficient job as well.
It's pretty cheap and fairly priced. Push the pump and a medium-thick white unscented cream (basically cold cream) comes out. Massage it onto your dry skin and all makeup comes off. Make sure you don't open your eyes while doing this as there's literally black sludge everywhere (if you wear eyeliner and mascara). Wash it off with warm water and all your makeup (waterproof or not) is off. Sometimes there is one of two little black dots but your follow-up cleanser should get rid of that. I also find some mascaras to be really stobburn, like Givenchy Phenonmen'eyes so I have to use it twice or else it leaves a faint black smudge under my eyes. It doesn't leave residue as far as I can tell and lasts forever while doing its job at a good price, a good product and a good buy.
