These little pads are so easy to use! They're pre-soaked pads that have plenty of makeup remover on them. The little container with the twist off cap is leak-proof, so you don't need to worry about them drying out. I usually use 2 pads to remove all my makeup (I usually use eye-makeup and lipstick, but not foundation). It only takes less than five minutes and your face will have no trace of makeup left! It costs me $7-8CAD for 80 pads at my local drugstore. I recently bought my second one!
The only downside is that these pads do leave your face feeling quite greasy, so you'll need to use a cleanser afterwards. The side label might also peel off after a few months if you get makeup remover on it (I guess the makeup remover can also remove the glue on the label?).

This product is horrible. Yes it removes eye makeup so good but everytime I use it my eyes go blurry and i have to wash the product off right away and it still leaves a bit of blur in my eye. I hate the feeling and don't feel like this product is worth using even if it does take every bit of my eye makeup off. Won't purchase again

This is truly gently. It removed eye makeup and foundation. it does not irritate. The only drawback is that is leaves a residue. The residue can be wiped off or washed off but, you have to use a good cleanser to remove the mineral oil that is left on the skin. The price is great. I would repurchase.

I can't believe that this product is rated so low. I have been using this makeup remover for years and it's about the only thing that takes off ALL of my eye makeup! Other makeup removers don't work as well as this product. I've tried high-end kinds like Lancome, but they don't compare! If you can't seem to find a product to take off your stubborn eye makeup, I would highly recommend this one. Works like a charm! I will continue to use this product!

Convenient for travelling and home use. Gentle, doesn't irritate eyes, does its job, removes waterproof mascara and mascara coat, so this is lovely. Hope it can be on sale more often.

I accidentally purchased these instead of the oil free ones I normally get. But i figured why not use them instead of taking them back....big mistake.
They are SO OILY. i understand moisturizing, but it didn't feel good. it felt like i just dumped a bunch of french fry grease on my face.
The biggest thing however was it burned my eyes. I have sensitive eyes, and i wear contacts. It burned my eyes so bad i had to wash my face and lay with a wash cloth over my eyes to relieve the pain. It was awful.
I ended up giving them to my sister and she likes them, so to each their own. I know I will triple check next time to make sure i get the right kind. The oil free ones are amazing and take off all makeup!

I bought this specifically because it contains oil. Oil based removers do a better job of eye makeup removal in my opinion. This is a convenient, inexpensive way to remove eye makeup without tugging or pulling. To those who are complaining that it's oily, well the first ingredient is oil. You use these and then wash off you face with cleanser. It works great.

Be warned that this product leaves a greasy film behind after removing eye makeup. I give it 2 lippys because it removed my waterproof mascara really well. However, it is not worth it for the way it leaves my eyes feeling afterwards, so greasy that I had to use a tissue to eliminate the film. I would not recommend this to anyone with problem skin. If you want a good eye makeup remover then try the oil-free version, it is so much better!

This makeup remover pads have been super hyped up in the beauty community. I've been on the search for the perfect eye makeup remover. I have super sensitive eyes so its hard to find a remover that doesn't hurt my eyes. There is 80 eye makeup remover pads, which I think is a great amount for what you pay.
Each pad is fairly thin, but VERY saturated with the makeup remover. I love how a pad is a never dry or doesn't have enough remover on it. This does not hurt my eyes, make them irritated at all. I will definitely be using this from now on!

I was really shocked to see such a low rating on these! I love them! I used to use mary kay eye make up remover with the swisper cotton pads but it just wasnt practical considering I didnt know anyone who sold mary kay and I just never found the time to order it online. Not to mention the price ($15) A friend told me about these and i decided to try them. I love them! They do leave your eyes greasy (hence the moisturizing) but thats not a big deal because i wash my face right after it. They are about $7 so pretty good. Will buy again
UPDATE: I came across a mini thing of mary kay eye makeup remover one night and decided to use that instead of my almay ones. There was a HUGE difference. I didn't have to constantly rub at my eyes just to get it on. I just held the mary kay eye makeup remover there and my eye makeup immediatly came off. I fished the rest but did not repurchase.

I have been using these and similar make up remover pads for years and years. They are just pads soaked in mineral oil but are the only thing I've found which will ever soften and remove majorly waterproof mascara without any dragging of the skin. It just melts it right off. Leaves a huge oily mess on your eyes but you're supposed to wash it off or at least wipe it off with a tissue! Leaves my eyes and lashes nice and soft and supple, no stinging at all. it's exactly the same as baby oil-mineral oil.

Does not remove all your eye make up and you need a lot to even remove eyeliner off both eyes! I would not recommend at all.

They're ok. I don't find them greasy at all. What I don't like about them is that they don't remove all of my eye makeup, which is the whole purpose. If they worked better, they would be great. I like the whole idea of pre-moistened eye makeup pads over the stuff in bottles, but the pads need to be more moist and the formula needs to work better to get my approval.

Granted I've only used the sample size of this product but I was so dissapointed! I'm sure the pads were small because it was a sample but they absorbed so much makeup that I would find it hard not to use multiple ones with the full retail size. Biggest complaint was simply that it stung my eyes!!

These are great... for everyone talking about the oiliness of the pads they do make an oil free version of these. I don't wear a lot of eye make up or wear it everyday bu these do the trick.. they've been voted #1 on Allure's list for years.

These are the best on the market hands down for eye makeup removal. I have tried other expensive brands that completely disappoint. These are non- irritating, non-burning. I use a lot of mascara (lash blast waterproof) & eyeliner (revlon color stay) so it takes about 3-4 pads to remove all makeup. Also, I use q-tips to help get the residue from my lash line and finally rinse with water to remove the oily residue around my eyes. I have used these for over 10 years!

Almay Moisturizing Makeup Remover Pads are pre-soaked cotton rounds. I buy these for like $2.99 at Wal-Mart for an 80 count container (My Wal-Mart recently removed its Almay display D=). These are a good makeup remover. I mostly use them to correct mistakes, remove anything my liquid remover missed, or as quick on-the-go removers. I don't really like them for use as a daily all over makeup removers. They do a decent job at it, but it can take multiple swipes from both sides of the pad to remove 1 eye's worth of makeup, where as it only takes my liquid makeup remover one swipe to remove a whole eye's worth of makeup.
The container says these are 100% fragrance free and hypoallergenic. They do seem to be very gentle. I have no irritation or stinging from these, unless I rub too hard.
The main ingredient in these is mineral oil, which may deter some from using these, but it doesn't cause me to get oily lids or pimples. Speaking of oily lids, its best to blot off the excess oil if you plan to reapply makeup right away, or else it'll slip right off. (I checked Almay's site and these are available in an oil free version)
I find these a little moisturizing, but not significantly so. They contain aloe and cucumber extracts, and are alcohol free, so that seems to support the moisturizing claim, even if I don't feel it.
These are packaged in a white screw top jar and are available in a few different count sizes, but I always get 80. I can get multiple uses of each pad, as they're double sided. One jar usually lasts me about 4 months.
I recommend these to keep in your purse, for travel, and for touch ups and spot cleaning, but not for for all over eye makeup removing.

I'm not really sure why these have such awful reviews - I mean, they aren't anything amazing, but they do the job.
I picked this up after I ran out of my Lancome & Up & Up (target brand) duo-phase removers. I thought this might be more convenient since they are pre-moistened pads. They are basically mostly mineral oil, which I guess is what is supposed to be moisturizing. I mostly just picked this over the other verity because oil removes WP mascara better. I also thought maybe it would help condition my lashes and keep them healthy.
Well, I will agree that these pads are too small. I dont wear a ton of eye makeup most days - just a sweep of shimmer eye shadow, and thin line of eye liner and mascara, but I really almost need 2, 1 per eye to get thorough removal. I was also surprised at how thin they are. Something a little ticker and more substantial would really help to move eye make up, but I can deal with it.
Yes, it does leave an oily residue behind, but I always wash my face with a cleanser. This is a MAKE UP REMOVER, IT IS NOT A CLEANSER - so I dont get why people complain about that.... you are SUPPOSED to wash your face after anyways... so that oily residue is there for, say, a few seconds.
I use a wash cloth to make sure I get off all the residue and any remaining eye make up and when I get up in the morning I have not found any raccoon eyes from product left behind like I do with a lot of other MU removers.
I do think it conditions lashes, but I haven't seen any crazy differences.
Overall, it works - I mean, using a cotton pad with some oil (I like coconut or jojoba) would work just as well, if not better, but I'm lazy and I like the convenience. I would buy again, especially if I were going to be traveling.

I got these after reading a single review at Target.com. My fault really. It was a positive review so I figured it couldn't have been that bad. One of my favorite MU gurus on Youtube tends to favor Almay products so I figured it was going to be okay. I was SO wrong. This thing leaves an oily mess on my eyes and it stings like heck! It takes me at least 3-4 pads to have everything removed.
I bought the moisturizing one and the oil-free ones. Haven't tried the oil-free ones yet but according to the other reviews I've seen on here, it seems to be better than the moisturizing ones. Let's hope so because this was a regrettable purchase.

LOL what with all the bad reviews??I like this stuff very much yes the pads are very small but they don't irritate my eyes.They smell nice to pretty cheap i sometimes even use them to remove my foundation to.I'm happy with the results and continue to buy.
