This is the worst eye makeup remover I've ever used. It smells like a fibreglass factory. It doesn't remove eye makeup and it stings. What a waste!

I stocked up on this while Almay had some $4 coupons out. I felt like it did a very poor job of removing all the makeup on my face. It definitely didn't remove my eye makeup and I had to pull a alternate product out to get my eyes clean. I don't think I would buy This product again, even with the coupons.

I appreciate that this:
~is oil-free
~doesn't leave an oily residue or make me momentarily blind
~this formula doesn't burn my eyes quite like the waterproof version. (Uh... yay?)

This is my second bottle, mostly because I needed something, this was cheap, and I bought it before all the new micellar waters came out. (I will be trying a garnier micellar water next/instead.) This can do the job of removing my makeup... eventually. It seems like it takes too much product and effort to actually remove anything, much less everything. It's not technically that expensive, but I have to use too much to really call this cheap.

Hilariously & ironically, it won't even remove the regular version of the Almay Get Up & Grow Mascara.

I just finished a bottle and my overall experience was that this did the job. It felt refreshing on the eyes, didn't sting that much, did a great job of removing makeup and waterproof liner. HOWEVER, after I read a few reviews, something clicked... others claimed it left their eyes "raw" and tender... it dawned on me that this could be what cause my right eye lid to be very dry (dry patch and the skin started peeling in one spot), raw and tender. No matter how gentle I was with removing makeup and I even started applying an eye cream, which burned some times when it was irritated... I will give an update once I switch to a different brand. Goodness, I sure hope it is this product after all!!!

Before I even thought it could have been the makeup remover causing my eye to be like that, I would have given this product 4 lippies. YIKES!!!!

For something that claims to be oil-free, it sure feels oily. I had the Almay remover cloths, but they dried out (bad packaging) so I used this to 'rehydrate' them so to speak. It works, but it's so greasy and it stung my eyes. Will not repurchase. I will stick to Huggies baby wipes. 72 for $2, do not sting, and they remove my makeup well.

First off, it stung my eyes like crazy. The product claims to be without irritation but it does the total opposite - for me anyway. I put it on a cotton ball/round, as you would, and then gently placed it on my eyelid for a couple of seconds. Straight after I began to feel a burning sensation and it irritated my eye so bad that I had to apply cold water to it. I didn't want to attempt it on my other eye in case it caused the same results.

I bought this product on a whim because I was running out of eye makeup remover. I have two holy grail eye makeup removers but one day I decided to try a cheaper alternative with similar product claims. I don't want to hate on the product because it probably works on others but I honestly recommend that if you want to try other eye makeup removers, smell the product first if you can because if it has a strong chemical-like smell, chances are it could sting your eyes and cause irritation.

It removes the daily makeup without any difficulties but it's pretty hard to get rid of the eyeliner/mascara. If you rub over your lashes, be careful, your lashes might fall out. And smells horrible like drugstore alcohol.

It definitely not worth the title of "#1 eye makeup remover brand in America", definitely bullshit.

I might as well be washing my eyes with water because this stuff does not work. i bought it because I had just ran out of my old nivea one and desperatly needed one plus it was on sale. I got it for around 6 bucks which is a great price and the packaging was cute so I got it, bad idea. I do not wear a lot of eye makeup. Gel eyeliner and mascara, thats pretty much it, today I was wearing a shimmery eyeshadow as well if it makes a difference. I used three cotton balls drenched in this and it only managed to remove my eyeshadow and a bit of my eyeliner (the wing) My mascara which is not waterproof stayed put and there is still a little eyeliner left that I gave up on. My old makeup remover which was also cheap removed it in like two swipes. I decided to give it another change and see if it would remove my concealer but it didnt do a very good job tho i know its an eye makeup remover. It did not irritate my eyes or leave an oily residue if you are wondering. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless the only thing you wear is eyeshadow.
